The Settlers 7 DRM Woes Continue

The Settlers 7 Forums indicate that problems with the DRM in The Settlers 7, which requires a constant internet connection, are continuing, if not getting worse, as there has been what the UK Forum Manager refers to as a "recent 'explosion' in posts." There are reports from players in various territories who have been unable to play the game for a couple of days, some of these including word of corrupted saved games. Thanks Xirix.

I played the demo for this last night, it is a REALLY fun game and I want to buy but after all this nonsense I checked out their forums to see if it really is that bad and yes, tons of server outages and people being locked out of a game they legitimately bought. Until Ubisoft gets their stuff together and stops treating paying and potential customers like thieves they're not getting $50 out of me. Really really sad, I also feel sad for the devs of this game. It's terrific and worth a purchase but not with this DRM.
