Ubisoft servers still under attack

At about 12:00 pm (Pacific Time), Ubisoft reported on their Twitter feed that their DRM servers are under attack again - and that some gamers are experiencing trouble signing in. This news follows additional server problems that occured this past weekend, which prevented some players from installing, saving, and/or playing Assassin's Creed II and Silent Hunter 5.

Both Assassin's Creed II and Silent Hunter 5 require players to be conneted to the internet in order to play, which is why these server attacks are causing so many complications. Some have cited this inconvenience to raise the point that gamers with pirated versions aren't experiencing the problems that legitimate customers are suffering through. But Ubisoft claims that this is a mere rumor, and that " valid cracked versions exist." An official apology was made to all customers earlier this morning who have been affected by the recent server problems along with a note that "95% of players were not affected..."

    Its the best and most effective way to protest DRM, just don't buy the games. As awesome as they look, I won't be getting Assassin's Creed II or Silent Hunter 5. Considering I've played every other Silent Hunter it's painful but has to be done. I'm not interesting in throwing support for DRM. One person on a steam forum said he found it ironic that Silent Hunter 5 was supposed to cater to and pay homage to guys in the military. He is in the navy and consequently can't play the game if he's off duty thanks to the DRM. So there you have it, great job Ubisoft. Until then every person who has a problem with the DRM will get the same answer from me. Just don't buy it, or if you really have to, pirate it. There's no reason anyone should be putting up with this if they protest like that.

    > " valid cracked versions exist." I can link them to one if they're having problems locating any... there are several. I would have bought Splinet Cell Conviction, but I guess I won't be now, not that I'm saying I won't be playing it. Fking idiots -_-
