*yawn* Everyone missing my point is so cute. You're posting on OCN, you have a net connection. If your net is constantly dropping you need to man up and speak with your ISP or switch. If your router is giving you issues, there is a thing called saving money. And Viridian don't even start, if you can afford that sig rig you can definitely afford a better router/modem.
I had issues with my router and modem and I did just that, I saved my cash and bought a much nicer router/modem separate. Like I said, I could care less about the ones whining here about an internet connection, especially the ones of you with nice sig rigs. And slow? Slow internet connection? I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter how fast your network connection is, the server just wants to make sure you're online.
If I can tether with my phone and keep a solid connection to my games (which I've actually had to do before because I couldn't afford cable or dsl at the time). Then I'm pretty sure its not that big of a deal. People just want something to whine about.
And again, it is not only the connection issues but the message that Ubisoft sends by putting this in place. Apart from the people who have limited/no connection (yes, it DOES exist even though you dont think so) there are people who like to play single player games on the road while traveling, or in their hotel room without having to pay absurd internet rates just to log in to play their single player game. There are also people in the armed forces who are stationed overseas without an internet connection.
To top it off, it is a terribly glitched port. This means they took the time to slap on their DRM, which they LIED ABOUT and ninjad it in without warning, but did not have enough time to make it a half decent PC game.
