Almost everyone is having this problem. Just look at the forum.

This has been happening to me intermittently.

I started the game, played for a few minutes then exited to change some driver settings, started up again and got the "Establishing Network Connection. Please Wait." message. I exited and tried a few more times with no change.

I came back about an hour later and the game started up right away, I played for a few more minutes then exited to further tweak the drivers, started the game again and got the same message.

I came back about 40 minutes after that and the game started right away, so then I did the same thing just as a test. Sure enough as soon as I exited and started the game up again I got the error message again.

dont worry m8, its not us, its them.

what will frustrate you more is when you are just about to beat a part of the game you've been trying to for an hour and then the game thinks your connection is gone and well.... you'll see

Honestly I do not see why they could've failed in this. No server support neither, what's going on?

Maybe servers are down ?

An official word on this would be appreciated.

I was doing testing and the problem is the server "static3.cdn.ubi.com", when blocking this connection the game works 100%

How exactly can you block that server?

Uhm, you can for example add a line to the HOSTS file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc).

Open it with Notepad, and add:
127.0.0.1 static3.cdn.ubi.com

I suppose you can block it with a FW too.
There are many ways to block things http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hosts file? I don't see that anywhere. What's the exact name of the file? And is this blockage directed toward the matchmaking problems?

*edit*
Wait I found it.

Blument
05-01-2010, 12:10 AM
The file is called "Hosts", without any extension http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Well, SKIDROW released a crack which seems to work perfectly.

SO WHAT SHOULD I DO ? AM I GONNA CRACK MY OWN LEGIT GAME ?!

And we have ZERO news about this problem.

Sure, I'm playing with the crack. I refuse to use this DRM.
Skidrow completed my game, SP and LAN co-op without internet, now I can enjoy my product like I should http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

And yes, it works fine.

Yeah, nice, and i won't be able to play coop the official way...

WTF, they whine about making dedicated servers "because it costs too much for a specific platform" but they spend much more for auth servers and development of a *******DRM. And i won't talk about VS.

I won't buy ANY UBI GAME anymore.

Haha, I know, it works for me because I only want to play LAN and SP, so I have no problems using the crack (actually, I have more problems playing without it)

But yeah, it sucks. And they will blame Piracy for the low sales http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Since Piracy is the cause of the DRM, it would explain low sales of the PC version.

DRM should stop THE PIRATES from playing,not the legit customers.I'm also getting this error and I hope that Ubisoft fix this error ASAP,because almost everyone,who bought the game can't play it! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

Very incorrect.


While everyone who can't play the game will (and does) complain, there are vastly more people that have been playing the game with no problems worth posting about, and thus don't post about it.


If you don't like the DRM, blame the people responsible, which isn't Ubisoft.

Yeah,I'll start blaming 1 billion people. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif I'm not angry at the DRM - Ubisoft has all the rights to protect their money from being stolen,but why can't they find a way to stop the pirates without screwing their legit customers?I've bought the fricking game and I can't play it,cause of this stupid error.But in the same time probably thousands of pirates play it without any single problem(excluding FPS issues,that's because the game is a lazy port).I can't even login,using my Ubisoft account and enter the install keycode.

I suggest that all of you should send a letter to ubisoft or the retailer of the product and ask for a refund. The product doesn't work like promissed so you have all the right to get one.

Like everyone I'm OK with DRM if they don't kill the game. I bought AC2 with the same DRM and I was happy with it, Now with SCC I'm simply can't play the game because the game stop evey 5-10 sec (trying to connect...)

Why the DRM check is not every 30min or hour to avoid troubles in case of servers issues.

I personally never play online, so if the DRM continue to bother me, I'll search for a crack.

Bad games, bad ports and 6 month delays are a few of the reasons for the low sales and DRM, not piracy.
I know piracy IS a problem, but good games and companies who cares about PC gamers will sell anyway. And this DRM is only stopping legit customers from play, not pirates.

Still can't play without a crack, NO NEWS from official support, NO WORD from Ubi about it !

No multiplayer for now, so we paid for a semi illegal version.

I'm so glad, thanks Ubi !
