I have to agree w/ bladycor in this little row and add that the premise twestern is working from is absurd on its face.
Nobody cares about whether or not we know the game has DRM (that's about as absurd a strawman as I've come across lately, and I frequent a lot of political blogs where it's something of an art form)--people are pissed because not all of us (most, I daresay) have a net connection that's always up. (This is a key distinction: you likely have *no* idea how frequently your connection actually goes down due to caching, amongst other issues, and this game will alert you, quite acutely, to this fact.) Add in what others have said about laptops, etc., and you have a lot of annoyed people for *no good reason.* (The pirates *will* crack this, just as they *always* crack *everything* and this DRM is just giant red flag being waved in their faces.)
Why you feel the need to try and obviate Ubi for their bone-headed, idiotic, business decisions is beyond me (are you working at Ubi now and/or on a game for Ubi??), but it is, most certainly, a bone-headed, idiotic, business decision that will a. cost them sales, b. massive amounts of goodwill tossed on the fire, c. the pirates *will* get around it so you're only punishing the legit customers, and d. a lot of people have looked forward to this game and, according to you, just because Ubi has foisted absurd DRM on them, they should either suck it up or skip the game altogether. (I'm sure you'd be so dismissive were it a game you very much wanted to play.)
Note: I have zero interest in this game, but Ubi's actions *are* ridiculous/absurd/over-the-top, period much like your terrible argument.
