I was playing then suddenly I got a message saying that the connection with Ubisoft was lost and it was trying to reconnect. My internet was doing fine since I was able to alt-tab and come here so after 10 min I shut the game down and now when I try to start it I get a "An internet connection is required to play this game. Failed to connect to the Ubisoft master servers. Please verify that your internet connection is functional and try again." Obviously my connection is fine since I'm typing this so what's the problem? Ubisoft's server is down?

I must say I'm pretty pi$sed. I considered buying this game or not for a long time and I bought it... yesterday. So on the second day it stops working... Is that "online system" going to stay for a long time?

Also, what is the email for Ubi support so I can address my compensation demands. Thanks.

I already lost 45 minutes, going from forum to forum, hitting F5 and trying the game.

I bought this game because it was made by people from my city (Montreal) and I wanted to encourage them but now you can be sure I will never buy a game from Ubisoft ever .

OK, its not my damn internet thats failing, its your damn server, so stop telling me its my problem and stop reminding me this damn game requires internet connection.

Which shows the lack of protection on Ubisoft's server. If they're so easily hacked by one simple download file, then they're doing something wrong. Both Ubisoft and the hackers play a part in this, but Ubisoft could have easily prevented this.

There will always be pirates, there's no avoiding this at all, and by removing their ability to pirate, which I wouldn't even say Ubisoft did, more so just slowed them down, they've got incentive to do something else, i.e attack the server. Everyone saw this coming long before the game even released. They knew it would happen, and Ubisoft had more then enough time to place in measures to prevent this. Even Ubsoft should have seen that the DRM would have caused this, and they should have realized someone would try to attack them.

The fact that they were successful in their attack is a problem, and the fact that Ubisoft was unable to prevent it is even worse.

Crime is caused by desire and opportunity. Since they can't remove the desire, they need to reduce the opportunities.

What they did now was, rather than have people pirate a game and them lose money that really won't cause a deficit, they ended up implementing a system that is causing them to lose past, current, and future customers to any of their games.

We paid for the game, and because of their inability to successfully fight off attacks, we're all suffering for it.

I blame the pirates, yes, but I blame Ubisoft more. They knew this would happen, and it was their job to stop it; and if they didn't know...well, then I suggest the get an new tech team.

It's all good that they're trying to stop piracy, and the DRM is a good idea in a theoretical situation, but then again, so is Communism.

I guess in the end, it comes down to the opinion.

So, in the end, the full on circle goes around and everyone is to blame for the problems. Ubisoft and hackers for the inability to play the game, and the customers for buying a product they knew would have issues, and then complaining about it.

I say this.

Ubisoft, you implemented this system. Some where at your circle desk meeting with all you people bunched in a room, this problem came up. You should have known to take it seriously and implemented fail-safes to prevent it or not done the DRM at all. If this problem didn't come up at all, which I have a hard time believing it didn't, then I suggest who ever is in working in your security and tech sections of your company be immediately fired and replaced since they're clearly idiots. Test the system on a beta, don't test it after people have already paid for it. That causes problems all around.

Hackers/pirates, there isn't much to say to you. You were able to attack a company. Woohoo, but you won't be getting laid.

Customers, including myself, we knew the system was there. We knew this could----WOULD happen. We should have been prepared for it. There are better ways to get a point across then complaining. You're upset, it's understandable; but at the same time, you spent the money. You made the choice knowing full well that this would happen. If you didn't, then you didn't do enough research, which still falls back on your lack of effort. You're loss of money is your fault. They're not going to refund your money, because you made the choice.

Down again!? "But we are being DDOSd by hackers". That's your problem, not ours.

I'm done with DRM now. I really don't understand no one at Ubisoft seems to know that it aren't pirates that get annoyed by this but legitimate buyers. You know what Ubisoft? ***c you.If you don't care about your customers, I can as well use an illegal version in the future. Or not play it at all.

And don't modbreak for swearing. You ripped your customers off: we paid 15 euro more than retail to get the game later and to not be able to play is regulary. The only thing we can do is show our frustration by swearing - but you won't even allow that.

But we'll get our revenge by boycotting your products. No more Mr. Buy***.

I don't think, that a server do not work only because of DDOS attacks. This DRM was initially doubtful, and Ubisoft should expect that has taken place. In this case others are guilty both those, and.

I have bought this game, although it was cheap I admit, but I can clearly see why platekompaniet.no sold this game so cheap.

It is not effin working?!?
I will go as far as DEMANDING a removal of this ridicilous copy protection even if it will effect sales. Because as it is now, people that have PAYED HARD EARNED CASH for this piece of crap that doesen't work aren't getting what they payed for.

Now, please tell me ubisoft or whoever the heck is moderating this site, do you really think it's worse that some lowlife pimplefaced datanerds are cheating you for cash by copying this game, or is it worse that a big company like ubisoft is cheating honest buyers from a product they've payed for?

Right now I am so angry that I'm close to bursting several veins in my head, and I can fairly honestly say that this kind of treatment from a gaming company actually promotes piracy. I am seriously considering getting the first working fixed exe file available for this game.
SH5 was pretty high up on my wishlist as well, forget about it.. not gonna get until it's cracked or you choose a less customer hostile copy protection.

phew.. well, that's how I feel right now at least!

EDIT: PS. at the very least give us a server status indication on some web page, it's pretty damn annoying when something is not working, to guess whether it's the server or something else that has gone wrong in this bugfest.
some kind of xml like MMO's have for server status would be nice.

Even the ubi support pages are too slow to bother with at the moment. I bet it's located on the same server as the DRM thingy, so the amount of complaints would actually be a main factor to why we can't play the game.

Well, it seems like it at least.

Ok, seriously now- Ubi, what the freshman did you think would happen with this DRM? How did you think ur customers would feel?
Speaking of which- people, stop whining- THEY ARE NOT LISTENING!
Ubi is aware of the problem, but what they think is similar to "Dumb customers, what do they know? we're UbuSoft, we know best- this DRM is our idea, so there's no way it's flawed in any way. There gonna deal with it, time we showed 'em some 'tough love'. And our profits will still be THROUGH THE ROOF!!!."... or something disturbingly similar.
Face it people, we are UbiSc****d, no point wasting our breath... unless someone knows a good 'wet-work' agency to 'take care' of the 'ubi problem'?

Ubi has frickin screwed us PC gamers, and i honestly think they should send back the money but let us keep the games because ofall the frustration it caused us, what we paid would hardly be compensation in my eyes. THEY FREAKING SCREWED US!!!!
