    If a cracked version does exist then its a bit annoying that they will be getting a better service than those like myself who have brought the game, by not having to put up with the stupid drm.

    "We also confirm that, at this time, no valid cracked version of either Silent Hunter 5 or Assassin’s Creed II are available."

    The tracker i use for linux distros begs to differ....

    it dose exicst i found it last night i only found it on someones website (hosted themselfs becasue it was jsut an ip address)
    the reason they are saying that a working one dose not exicst becasue the beta patch had a bug that you could get into the animus (in first 10mins of game) that has now been fixed
    and it was never done by skid-row ignore these rumors

    Only 5% of gamers affected? What metric is this based on? Of our customers who tried to play the game during the downtime, only 5% of them received the error, or was it that of our customers who bought the game, we estimate that only 5% of them wanted to play the game during the downtime?

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it was down to an attack, the anger is there.

    i think it was an attack, only the attack took the form of paying customers trying to connect to play the game they bought.

    Quite irritating TBH, if they are so angry, why don't they just pirate the game like they were probably going to anyway, instead of shutting down the servers so I can't play :(

    You, sir, get +1 rep for that witty remark.
    They're not exactly going to turn around and say 'It's ok, you can get the cracked version from bit torrent. It doesn't have this problem.

    hahahahahahahahah

    yup, we talk about this a few months ago i remember :|

    Honestly I didnt espect we would be proven right so quickly, this completely sucks, you cant even start a single player game if the servers go down, and they do :mad:

    And yes, a pirated copy will have no problem at all, that just great .@

    Seriously guys, at least two days in a row mispelling BROUGHT. Once in a while it's funny and all but constantly making the same mistake is quite annoying. Joe, have you any problem with the R in brought? =\ The others mispellings I don't know who made them but come on guys, it's kind of becoming an nuisance.

    Back to the article, I read about this yesterday that Ubi was blamming hackers for the downtime which almost everyone agreed with "They didn't have the capacity to fulfill the needs of the amount of players being online and since admiting that is lack of knowledge and profissionalism"
    PR must have though: "Let's blame it on the hackers! Yeah, hackers, that should do it!"
