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.

I realise that a lot of you hate this DRM and I understand your reasons ... though I think that they are blown out of perspective (IMO anyway). This issue with Settlers 7 I can't comment on, but my guess is that it's the way it's been implemented in THAT game is buggy because SH5 works fine.

Of course it's being blown out of proportion. It is the internet.

But really, this is just being used as a jumping off point to rehash the same old DRM vs. Piracy arguements
