No wonder the ctOS app is barely working.

Crashes.
Not connecting to players.

I suppose after the disaster that was gta online, it was mandatory for the servers to be bogged down.

Times like this where I wished it went through the Steam client.

This is one of the main reasons I despise Ubisoft....they have to use that crappy Uplay client instead of just going through Steam like a sane person.

Plenty of developers go through growing pains with new game servers being overloaded. Just look at Rockstar and the shitfest that was the GTAV Online release.

It's a shame that this isn't surprising news. This is far too common an occurrence with new games coming out. When will these companies that demand having this shitty form of DRM realise it's only annoying the consumer. The people who have purchased this game cannot play, while the people who have torrented it are playing fine with their cracked version. Seems pretty crazy to me.

Dragoon, come on mate, Ubisoft are a veteran in gaming now, and have had problems at almost every major game launch in recent years, was it AC2 that wasn't playable on PC for like a week due to the predesesor of Uplay being down?

Diablo 3 had it, SimCity had it, GTA 5 had it.. these kind of releases will just keep on giving problems if those companies approach it in the same way.

These aren't game servers. These are "We're gonna screw legitimate customers in the name of fighting piracy!" servers.

Yeah, I've had login issues. Not surprising. It's pretty bad TBH.

uPlay, last I checked, removed all my uPlay rewards points last time I managed to get in. I don't mean from Watch Dogs, I mean across my profile. I've got game progress unlocked, but no points (even though I had around 200 stored). Hope that comes back, even though there isn't much worth spending points on in any given game anyway.

*goes off to play Skyrim some more since he can't get into uPlay*

The Uplay servers have been decent for me tbf. I only had to wait an hour yesterday to actually get Uplay running.

The only problems I'm facing is getting the mobile app from connecting.

Thanks Uplay for being so useless at running servers.

The mobile app is really hit and miss, usually have to tell it to connect 2-4 times before it bothers to do it

I paid $20 for the season pass mainly for the mobster outfit and now I can't even access it in the game until the servers are fixed
