It seems that Ubisoft doesn’t kick a customer out of the game that they legally purchased, just dumps them back to their last checkpoint (in the case of AC2) and pauses the game until they get a connection again.
Oh yeah. That’s better. They still treat their customers like criminals, but at least they don’t have to reload the game.
My suggestion is that anyone who doesn’t want to be treated like a criminal, heads over to Amazon or any other supplier that allows customer reviews, and make your opinion count. Don’t lie about the game or the company, just let potential buyers know that Ubisoft is treating them like criminals and that a game like this isn’t worth buying. This tactic worked when EA tried the same crap over Spore (I think) with the DRM that limited activations. Ubisofts DRM is worse.
Make yourself heard.
