Ubisoft’s DRM servers under fire

By Hans Wuerflein

It looks like Ubisoft’s new DRM is doing a better job of keeping legal purchasers from playing their games than pirates.

The company’s servers, which users have to stay connected to AT ALL TIMES to play even single player games have come under fire from apparent DDoS attacks, a technique that sends more traffic than usual to a server in an attempt to crash it.

Many European gamers attempting to play Assassin’s Creed 2 have been unable to connect, and thus, unable to play.

The most insulting thing though has to be the fact that pirated copies of both Assassin’s Creed 2 and Silent Hunter 5 are available on torrent sites and a working crack (allegedly) already exists for one of them.
