+ 1 from me too.
I don't blame them for not expecting the high demand. I'm surprised they sold a single copy of any game running that level of drm. I have no sympathy for those that bought into it knowing how it worked. You deserve this, This is your reward for accepting these restrictions. Like, what did you expect? It was always going to happen. I'm surprised it happened so quickly but this is the system! Its never going to be up 100% of the time. Hence why Ubisoft can shove their games up their bum.
ubisoft just want to you to get the 360/ps3 version, its not they are really committed to pc releases anymore. there releases are always late and buggy with poor DRM software to annoy you so you go and get the 360/ps3 version.
some folks i talked to played silent hunter 5 just fine....
The only thing I'm buying Re Assassin's Creed 2 is the soundtrack, if I wanted to waste time with these games I'd rent on console or buy from Ebay so Ubi wouldn't get the money - bet there's no requirement to be wedded to Live or PSN in the same way on console versions.
I just love that....
"you wouldn't download a car wouldn't you"
I bet if it was physically possible, millions of cars would be downloaded, it just shows how out of touch these people really are.
Not only do they use an analogy which is rediculous, but also that have nothing apart from DRM which doesn't work, forcing people into a purchase which can't work.
As people have been saying since 2001, move with the times, or get left behind.
/now wheres that car download I was looking for.

watch out when u click the link. confirmed spyware pretending to be an anti-spyware.
A basic CD check or Steam should be enough. Everything else is just hurting the end user.
True? Sorry, I read that site almost everyday, haven't seen that.
geekologie has even been promoted by BBC Click, won't be any spyware.
multiplayer require constant internet connection, sure. but Assassin's Creed 2 is a single player game, it shouldn't require more than a disk check or steam verify.
DRM = Epic Fail
This is just another example.
They are blaming pirates for the high server demand. I suggest we make more pirates to increase server efficiency and decrease server load.
Let me guess, your AV is Kaspersky, and it is reporting some Iframe Trojan.
On topic: Shock horror..... o wait it's not.
Just another company spending millions on a DRM system which only turn customers away instead of putting that money into developing a good game with lots of content which doesn't ask the user to repeat the same things for 6 hours of average gameplay....
Buy games worth their value (SupCom 2) and pirate games that aren't, simple. It is funny that most of the games I pirate and never buy are installed for about 2 hours and then deleted. Shocking the number that go through this process, i'm almost constantly defraggling my hard drive cause of it... Grrrr!
Thatâ€™s another company that has underestimated the amount of people trying to use their new games.
EA had 400% more users playing BC2 over the weekend resulting in lots of problems and lengthy periods of server downtime.
Ea had 400% more players, UBI's servers are rammed to breaking point.
PC gaming is dieing??? I think not.
UBI can poke their DRM, i will not be buying into it until its removed. I guess that stands for a lot of people too. Way to go to lose money UBI.
Just when you think you can trust PC gamers...this. *sigh* When will these companies learn that there is no honor among thieves! If you want to stop piracy, don't put your game on the platform.
ffjason - Keep your pants on! He was just trying to be helpful! No need to be so angry.
I wouldn't use SupCom2 as an example of value there, seeing as they took pretty much everything out of the original, and added research as a resource.
