Well **** thats even worse. I mean seriously, Game Developers need to stop making crappy DRM that WILL NOT WORK. Rockstar invested 100k into their DRM protection. Cracked in 4 days. From Dust was cracked within 12 hours. Gabe Newell sums it up pretty perfectly when he stated " Make your game more attractive than the pirated version". Well Ubisoft, You've made buying the game a DISADVANTAGE because of the horrible DRM. Good job!
A friend of mine actually found a copy one day BEFORE it was released. I was dumbfounded as to how, but I wanted to spend the $15 so I could link it properly to Steam and chat with my buddies, plus, I thought it was gonna be a great title.
Psfh. Lies and shady deals cut it for me. I've never seen a company act in such an immature-babyish way.

Just saw your screenshot and wanted to test it myself. I disconnected in the middle of a session and did NOT get that message. I played for 5 minutes with no problem, saved locally and exited the game normally. Only thing is you have to wait a few seconds on exit for the "Synchronizing Saves" process to fail and then quit the launcher.
How long were you playing after the connection dropped until the game stopped? It seems to work as per the (new) official statement.
