Ubisoft DRM Problems Remain Unsolved

ocean_soul writes “More than three weeks after the release of The Settlers 7, with the controversial ‘always on-line’ DRM, a lot of people still can’t connect to Ubisoft’s DRM servers. The forum threads where people can post if they are unable to connect keep growing daily. One reason for the lack of fixes or responses from support seems to be that the people responsible were on vacation during the Easter holiday, despite the promise of 24/7 monitoring of the servers. The moral of this story seems to be that it is a bad idea to buy a game just before a major holiday.”
Or perhaps that it’s wise to avoid games with such DRM altogether. So far, Ubisoft hasn’t shown any sign that they’re reconsidering the requirement of a constant connection. They’ve recently said it’s “vital” to the success of their games and promised that their DRM would “evolve and improve” over time.
