I got the game on the Steam special, setup my Uplay account and got playing, it was awesome! Managed to stop a huge tidal wave. Then when I tried to play today it didn't work. Uplay was refusing my login details. Fine. I asked to recover the password. You don't actually recover it, you give yourself a new one, which I did. Still couldn't login to Uplay. Then, with that Uplay account I succesfully logged a ticket this morning. Its about 8 hours later and still no response. I love that the account used for Uplay WORKS when you want to log a ticket, but not to actually play. Basically "bahahaha stuff you and your saved game, make a new one" which I refuse to do over fear of then getting used serial key/email already taken and other such stupid errors. I will wait for this ticket to be solved and I will post an update every day to remind them that I cannot play the game.
Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel why don't people try emulate Steams success.... *sigh*
I'm having the same problem except I didn't start playing to day, which means that I can't play at all. I already have an account, so I tried making a new one. I keep getting an error that the ubisoft servers are unavailable. I would be able to play in the offline mode, but you HAVE to log in at least once.
I don't mind DRM, but if you're going to use it, you should GUARANTEE that your DRM servers are up at all times. It really is annoying to people who buy something yet can't use it.
I'm having this problem, except I haven't even gotten to play the game yet. I bought it from steam and tried to sign up for uplay. Can't register because the servers are unavailable. Okay. Go to ubisoft website and make one there instead! Go back over to it, refuses login information.
