Settlers 7 Aus DRM Woes

The Ubisoft Forums have numerous posts from gamers in Australia beginning before last weekend complaining of difficulties playing Settlers 7 due to difficulties accessing Ubisoft's "always on" DRM servers, which are apparently not always on. There are discussions of various workarounds, but nothing that seems to get consistent results. Thanks Games On Net.

Pure gold...

The general consesus among all the hate posts

We start the game, it gets past the splash screen with the girl on a horse where the little candle burns down, but beyond that screen we get presented with

"Server not available" Please try again later

No workarounds have any effect thus far
