    I only get warez versions of games in order to test them, so I can decide for myself whether a game is worth buying (reviews are subjective and some times even not to be trusted.) So this could actually backfire. People will then not buy it, since the warez version lacks a FOV slider, heh.

    I'm getting tired of Ubisoft's stunts.
    Yes, Watch Dogs runs fine for me now.
    Yes, Assassin's Creed Unity runs well.
    But all this patching and stupid companion app tasks are really starting to annoy me and it makes me so sad because I think these games are really good otherwise.
    I do think Ubisoft make really good games. So why do they keep screwing up their own stuff? And please for the love of all that is good can they please make Uplay better than then stinking pile of stuff it is now.

    lol what!

    This is bull****. The FOV slider was patched in. Majority of people who posted about lack of fov slider were also complaining of not being able to log into Uplay, which means....surprise surprise, they couldnt download the patch.

    Ubi taking credit for the something that is just there incompetence. Why was the fov slider even something that needed to be patched in anyway. It was already in the engine since FC3 and if anything, this just proves wrong the Ubi defenders argument that Ubis games are developed on the pc and then ported over to consoles.

    I did neither pirate the game or plan on buying it, but well... if they put an equal amount of time into properly making a game and releasing it bugfree with all options, a lot of paying customers wouldn't think about turning to piracy for crappy games they produce. Just my opinion though.

    Can they please just remove Uplay as EA should remove Origin and get the games available trough Steam instead.
    Every stupid company comes with their own stupid little **** app these days, god forbid that you see another publishers games! WTF?!

    Patched in huh? Then it's not even Ubisoft doing the talking. It's high-quality-journalism polygon putting words into their mouth. They really should stick to writing about boobs instead.

    Actually uplay is the main reason I'm not buying Ubisoft games anymore.
    Also, it's only PC gamers having to suffer from such sub-par platforms. Even at the best times I have never went above 3/10 for Origin if it asked me if I'd be likely to recommend Origin to a friend. Usually it's the lowest rating I go for (don't know if it's 0 or 1).

    But if games themselves are crap, even the best platform doesn't help. The biggest joke are games that Ubisoft releases on Steam, just to let you download and install uplay in addition to it. I felt BS'ed with Heroes of Might and Magic.

    If you have time to troll, you have time to fix your Uplay.

    Yeah, no idea why they HAVE to throw their launcher app into our face, must be some incompetent CEO's idea.
    Same can be said for a lot of other companies like Blizzard, Glyph and so on.
    None of them seems to understand that things can be so much easier with one unified launcher app (Steam or better) instead of that every one needs to have their own stupid thing.
    Not to talk about their digital download prices.... how many do still buy them keys directly from the companies these days when you can get the same keys a lot cheaper (up to 50% !!!) from resellers that bought a whole bulk of them?

    I think some sites are getting the wrong end of the stick here, Ubi didn't disable the FOV in the pirated version to tease them, its simply that the pre-release (non day 1 patched) version of the game had a number of settings missing - 1 of which was the FOV setting.

    As such anyone who complained about the FOV being missing, ousted themselves as pirates as any version that released properly got all the extra settings.

    Using this logic, all versions WITH FOV control then MUST BE LEGAL! :banana:

    Uplay is annoying like hell, because it pops out some stupid windows for uploading videos to Youtube. FU Ubisoft, i don't want to do that.

    I used to be a pirate like you, but then I took a Steam sale in the knee.


    Now, seriously, if you think the game is expensive now, just wait for it to be on sale or until next year, when it'll be half the price. Easy as that!

    Who cares, let them play with no FOV. It gives eye seizures playing like that.

    pc gamers show ubisoft the kind of contempt ubisoft show PC gamers. We use pirate versions to test your ****. Make the games properly and we may pay for them. Get rid of uplay for a ****ing start.
