My only problem is, I usually wait a year to buy a game. (so my computer is strong enough to play them, lol)

Well, what happens when Ubisoft goes under or the server goes down?

Guess we're just renting games from companies now. Though by then I do assume there will be a crack, or they'll remove that part in a year. So no huge bad.

Ubisoft's rep has been quoted as saying that if their servers went **** up, they'll release a patch to drop the online auth part of the DRM.

Also, to all who are complaining about keeping ur saves online, scuttlebutt has it that they are releasing a patch soon to allow u to save it locally, not sure about this part has I personally haven't gotten the game (damn gameshops in Singapore never stock the games early).

So as I said in an earlier post, can a mod lock this topic pls?

Ubisoft is patching in a local save option where if you lose your internet connection it will allow you to save locally before kicking you out of the game rather than you losing your progress because you lost your connection.

Nevertheless, the cracks are already in the works apparently, and it's estimated that the scene groups will have a fully working one in less than a weeks time.

Regardless of that, I don't like how DABhand is asserting his point. It's akin to a man beating his opponents into submission rather than an intelligent discussion. He's not even coming off like it's his own argument even, but that he's trying to prove someone else's point.

This site isn't warez-friendly. Quite the opposite. People who ask for or talk about using illegal software copies (As in actually having them and admitting to it) get banhammered. Discussions of cracks without anyone saying they're specifically using them or providing links or what have you is fine.

And DABhand doesn't have a right to complain about supposed "warez-friendly" actions, as it's up to the site admin and moderation team's discretion to choose what's over the line. There are sites out there where publicly challenging a moderator or administrator's decisions is a warnable or even bannable offense.

I don't care one way or another in terms of piracy. Sure it hurts the publishers, but the devs are paid in full long before the game hits shelves. If something puts a dent in the millions of millions EA or Activision-Blizzard is making from their respective big-sellers, I'd be amazed. Besides, console and handheld piracy is common as well.

The DRM is already being scaled back as appropriate for this game, and Ubisoft has promised to repeal the constant internet authentication should their servers fail or be taken down, meaning you will still be able to play it just fine even after Ubisoft decides to use those servers for a different game or what have you.

For those who have the money to afford it, buy it. For those who don't, keep what you do (or don't) to yourselves, because no one here will help you, and you may get banhammered if you admit to using an illegal copy.

If they have a patch like that (or the option to do something like quick save anywhere), I'd go buy it, but i don't like losing any progress or having to sit and wait for hours until my connection can come back on; that's just annoying (especially if you almost just made it through a particularly challenging part of the game, but were JUST shy of a stupid checkpoint).

I'll buy the game if I'm reasonably sure it will work to my satisfaction, otherwise I won't buy it or play it. Many of the arguments here are complete BS - people assume that if you don't like annoying, intrusive DRM, you must be a pirate. The Offline mode of Steam makes that reasonable to use, and I do: Link so just shut up about everyone that hates annoying DRM just wanting to steal everything.

The DRM on this game is fine. Yes, if your net connection did drop it would pose a temporary problem, but that's exactly what it would be, temporary. The game saves often, at checkpoints and such, and you can prevent your saves from been stored online (instead, using a local cache).

It's relatively non-intrusive. It makes use of the Ubisoft game launcher when starting up. This logs you in and then starts the game pretty much. Nothing is installed into the core of the system and there are no programs/services that need to run in the background all the time.

Also, this method means that you can install and use as many times as you like. Compare that to past methods for example where you could only have limited 'authorisations' etc. It's not too bad. Some people won't like. I'm not exactly jumping up and down in excitement about it, but it's not draconian as some are making out (those that seem to be doing this haven't even got it, so I can't see how a judgement can be made).

I can very well see how judgement can be made regarding the DRM even if you do not own a copy of the game.The Link speaks for itself.

For all saying about a 'local save patch', there already IS such an option, as I said before. As for the DRM and dropped connections, the reality is that most peoples connection will be fine while playing. Those who suffer from frequent disconnects though will be at a disadvantage, but it is analagous to saying that some people won't be able to play disc-based games, due to a failing drive or a large scratch in the surface.
