If you're going to treat us like Pirates...
We may as well act like Pirates. Seriously, Uplay is not cute, it's not cool, and it doesn't do anything good for your products. I know everyone and their mother wants to try and imitate Steam or other successful online digital distribution shops, but it's just not in the cards for you, because you have no idea what you're doing past trying to imitate. Do what you best, make games, and leave Steam and the other DD services to do what they do best. Now come on, take this Uplay crap off my games, don't include it on future games, and let's all get along here. Else, I'll act according to how I'm being treated moving forward.
And I was thinking on pre-ordering Assassin's Creed 3 for play it the first day... Oh wait, maybe AC3 I won't play it because the launcher of the game is so GOD **** LAME! or for worst, AC3 PC Version Won't be ready at 31 of october...
Bump; now that Uplay is officially dangerous to my PC on top of everything else previously listed. Come on guys, those of us who utilize Uplay (paying customers) are not the problem. Why are we being treated so poorly for buying your games in an attempt to route people from pirating Ubisoft games? It's not working, they're still playing your games, their PC security isn't currently compromised, and they don't have to deal with any Uplay issues (downtime, etc) at all. Sounds to me like they're getting the better end of the stick in this deal, and for free. Take off the tinfoil hat already, you're not doing any good for anyone, not even yourselves with Uplay.
Assassin's Creed III is coming up. It's as good a time as any to make amends, cut your losses, and respect the people who feed and cloth your family.
Ugh no kidding, i swear, i'm tired of paying for games that are being crippled like this. I'm not into pirating games. I have 9 Ubisoft games including deluxe versions & all the DLC available.
Stop pulling off this crap on loyal customers or i will turn to the dark side which means no money for you!
You know, there was a little experiment carried out by one of the train service operators in my country (England) regarding customer service and support, and how to dissuade people from boarding trains without tickets.
A select number of stations had signs posted in various locations reading: "Passengers without a valid ticket for their journey will be prosecuted!"
An equal number of different stations had signs reading: "Thank you for purchasing a ticket."
If you treat all of your customers as potential thieves, they're going to feel like ****. Instead, thank your legitimate customers for their business, and work on a solution to the problem that doesn't inconvenience them or make them feel guilty for something they haven't even done. It's business 101, and Ubisoft doesn't understand it.
I promise you right here and now Ubisoft - if Assassin's Creed 3 uses UPlay, I WILL pirate it. The only other game I have ever pirated is Assassin's Creed 2, and that's because I bought the game legitimately only to find that I got booted out of the game every 20 minutes. The game I paid for didn't work, so I needed to turn to piracy to get hold of a working version. How pathetic. This time, you won't get a penny out of me. If you treat me like a pirate, then fine, I'll become a pirate. It's your choice. Fair DRM, or no sale for you.
