Its not like Ubisoft is going to put out any new stuff for the game. No patches and no more DLC because they didn't ship anything more with the disks. We know they will not support the game.
Do the devs ENJOY reading people whine about how parts of the game don't work? Do they enjoy hearing about lost tokens, glitches, stupid bugs that should have been fixed in ALPHA testing?
Or is it just that it would cost more money to close down the forum than it does to keep it up? My bet is on that actually. We know exactly how much Ubisoft actually cares about their customers. Somewhere between year old dried cat urine and flash frozen monkey feces.
