Issues aside, I loathe having to log in to another account seperately. Had all sorts of hell trying to remember my un/pw for Uplay, same goes for Origin.
Slysi  +   205d ago
Your find it helps if you copy them down somewhere safe,that way like me no issues in forgetting.
Belasco  +   205d ago
I know, I am lazy, it's my fault.

You have to log on to ubisoft's servers on the console versions? Lame. I know EA are weird like that, don't need every publisher following suit.

Console AND PC versions connect to Uplay
Volkama  +   205d ago
Well yes, I know the PC version does. That is understandable though, there isn't a unified platform in place that could/should be running any online functions.

Yesterday I had to wait over a minute at a "Connecting . . ." screen . . . on Child of Light! Ubisoft, osculate my gaping defecatory orifice. There is no reason for this on an XBLA single-player RPG. Either have the Uplay connection attempt time out inside of 10 seconds, or do away with it altogether.

Well i have 60 per cent of the game downloaded. Can't connect to the Ubisoft servers.

This is a joke. Seriously why are we using crappy servers on xb1 still, with Azure available.

I know why, but i'll get lots of disagrees and angry Sony fan responses for saying it.

I'm having connection issues even on Trials Frontier on my Android device. Uplay sucks balls.
theRell  +   205d ago
Haven't noticed XBL issues, just Uplay, and that's on my phone.
AnEwGuY  +   205d ago
Based on past experiences with Ubisoft games, I'm putting this squarely on Uplay.
diesoft  +   205d ago
I don't understand what Uplay is for. If it were a platform like steam or even origins(blech) then I'd at least understand its purpose but all I EVER see about Uplay is how it's causing Game X or Game Y to have problems.

So...what is the point? Is the amount of money you spent on Uplay worth the DRM hassle and overall negative view? Has anyone ever wrote this: "I love Uplay, it makes my gameplay experience better for knowing it exists and I LOVE how useful it really is!"?
