Is it because I bought the game on STEAM? I activated it in the Uplay Client, but I didn't get the tag and can't write in the EA board...

I opened a service request with Ubisoft now - we'll see how that turns out.

I had to log off then log on again to have the rights in private forums.
The badge seems bugged and you only get it after creating a thread iin the early access section

Hi guys,

Afaik you should be able to access the forums as soon as you installed and launched the game for the first time. :)

Thanks,

Yea, well, that's not the case... I blame Uplay, 'cause I bought it on STEAM... Ubisoft doesn't want people to buy stuff on STEAM... ;)

Same issue. Bought on Steam but can't access the forum.

That's kinda ridiculous though... I specifically bought the game on STEAM because I didn't want to support Uplay... and I wanted to support Limbic with my feedback... and now I am at the mercy of Ubisofts Support.

The irony! ;)

Nope, doesn't work for me either, and I got the game off Steam too.

If you want us to provide feedback in the proper channel, at least make it possible to do so!

Yup, it's pretty obvious, STEAM users got the stick again... well done Ubisoft... I hope they at least recognize that we too purchased the Digital Deluxe Edition!

I am actually really disappointed how this situation is handled.

- Uplay is forced upon players.
- 30 EUR for a demo of a budget title? So if I'm a broke dude who can't risk a pre-order or early access buy, I'm out of the discussion, even if I'm amongst the greatest fans with a shelf full of old titles?

Would buy, would contribute to this game, I'm a huge-huge fan, but these are very off-putting. I'm not very fond of Steam either, but at least it's what I'm used to. Also, I want the boxed version AND play it on Steam (if not DRM-free). Does this mean, I need to buy twice?

ok and have you already activated the game via uplay and launched it, i.e. starting playing a first game (being online on uplay)? Because only afterwards priviliges are set in the forums (as you are using your uplay account here). So once you did that, the forums priviliges should be set sooner or later (when synchronizing with your uplay account).

At least this is, how it should work. ;)

Let me know if you have any news on that. :)

It finally worked for me now... I just played the game again some more and suddenly, half an hour later, my badge was there. Ah, and I got an achievement in game, maybe that triggered something?

Yes, the game's activated on uplay and I've already played it. Logging off and on on both uplay and forums didn't work either

No, that doesn't seem to work.

EDIT: Badge showed up just now. Perhaps it just takes time (several hours)?

Exactly this, Uplay malicious at best. I too bought this on Steam in hopes to avoid Uplay.

Still no badge, still no access to EA board... installed the game, played it, was online on Uplay and on forums several times... nothing :/

Hi guys,

Sorry to read that you are still having trouble posting in the Early Access forums. As I just wrote in the other thread, I forwarded this issue to the technical team. Could you please post in the sticky thread (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/787982-FAO-Early-Access-players-of-MMX-and-private-forums), in which the administrator will have a look on a regular base in order to check all the effected accounts, so that a solution can be found asap and so that you can get access to the Early access forums? It's easer to sum all accounts there than to scan various threads ;)

Thank you so much for your patience and for helping us to solve this!
