Far Cry 3 Uplay Workaround

The reddit community has presented a workaround for problems users were having playing Far Cry 3, as the shooter sequel is now available in Europe, saying simply setting the game's Uplay mode to "offline" allows it to be played even with the servers unavailable. As detailed on Rock, Paper, Shotgun, many users were unable to play due to Uplay servers being offline, leading to accusations of more Ubisoft always-on DRM. In the meantime, Eurogamer notes that besides the workaround, Ubi tweets that the servers are back: "Dear #FarCry3PC players, thank you for your patience, our servers are back up & running. Have fun playing!"

Feel free to actually prove your accusations but I suspect you're thinking of someone else or making shit up.

Nope - it was you. I am pretty certain that I am not making up anything, but I have better things to do than sift through your post history. So whatever. And I didn't accuse you of lying per se, but you are a self-admitted contrarian. Don't tell me you deny defending Steam on GOG's forums (where I recognize you from your name and avatar) just because the prevalent attitude there is that it's invasive crap. You do the opposite here because the prevalent attitude is more to the opposite end of the spectrum. Personally I hate shit like that. You're just playing people for the fun of it.

I defend Steam on GOG because they are all worried about DRM, which is stupid on an open platform. I "attack" Steam here solely on the grounds of not wanting it to control everthing on the PC. If you really wanna research look at my posts on GOG on that same subject, I say the same shit. I just recently mocked people in the sales thread for only wanting to buy cheap amazon games if they are Steam keys. I told them putting all your eggs in one basket is stupid.

You guys paint me as different things because you sometimes don't like my opinions. I am admitted contrarian in the sense that I enjoy debate and if I have an opposite opinion I will point it out. I am not a contrarian in the sense I lie or pretend. MASSIVE DIFFERENCE.

Read my shit and try to understand my opinions and you'll see I'm not just playing with people.
