Ubisoft Drm Epic Fail as Assassin’S Creed 2 Servers Crash: Ubigettinonmynerves

Ubisoft got a taste of Murphy’s Law as the company’s newly implemented Internet-dependent anti-piracy measure has left owners of the PC version of Assassin’s Creed II unable to log in and thus play their game. It was bound to happen, but I didn’t think it would happen almost right from the get go.

Basically the server(s) handling log ins for Assassin’s Creed 2 players crashed, and since the game is being constantly authenticated as it is played, it locked players out.  The official Assassin’s Creed forum is overflowing with hate, even from people who don’t actually own the game. I think the server is still down as of this writing. Someone is probably going to get fired for this, but if that happens the people who thought of this idea should get the boot as well. What now Ubisoft?

    I’m Mad as hell. I bought this game minutes after launch… Now I can’t play it, while people who DIDNT pay for it are blasting away.

      Really? You bought a game knowing about the DRM that was foisted on you and you are both surprised and angry? Really? Sorry, but you are the kind of person I am glad got screwed. NO ONE should have bought this game – not right away. You HAD to know there would be issues. Boycotting this game is the only way Ubisoft and others will get the message.

    @Steve

    unfortunately, only the minority thinks like you. I did not buy the game because of the DRM. But I know enough people who bought it: “I just want play so what is the problem?” Now I laugh at them as they can not play. But most people do not think. Because of this Ubisoft will get away with his crude DRM.
