Ubisoft -- UPlay

Postby SYN_Bandy » Thu Aug 04, 2016 1:18 pm

I've read some really nasty things about UPlay and was wondering what your opinion is.

To be honest I am quite loath to install yet another bloated DRM app, steam was an unpleasant enough but necessary evil for me, and UPlay is only for Ubisoft products anyways, right? It is enough for me to boycott all their products, not that they'll notice.

;) I love steam..but agree UPlay is freaking annoying. It's another level on top of other systems like steam.

Yea I wasn't happy when I had to sign in to that to play Far Cry. If I had known, maybe I wouldn't have bought the whole franchise Pack on sale. :oops: Of coarse, that was my own fault for not reading more closely. But recently I had to agree to a whole NEW ulea to keep access to those games. :|

I wish that when a company wants to change the ulea out from under you. You had the option to get your money back if you didn't like/agree to the changes. I mean, in what other aspect of life are contracts so one sided and ridiculous? :evil: Welcome to the future Mugue! :roll:

I really do not have a problem with Steam or Uplay TBH, in fact steam has been a bonus as I don't have to buy a DVD with a game on anymore, its instant.

As for ULEA s they mean absolutely nothing in law, just a way for the company to cut your access to servers/game.

Yeah, I really want to pick up FarCry Primal, but I'm just not going to do it...
