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!"

Yeah you're spot on, that was him alright. The exact words were "I wasn't exaggerating or kidding at all. I never have crashing problems, ever." Then he proceeded to blame people who mod their game and who don't know how to handle their computers. The whole thread pretty much called him out on the bullshit at that point and for amusement I linked a thread where he posted about Fallout 3 crashes he was having, proving that hes often so contrarian that he doesn't even agree with himself :D

It crashed during the 1.5 patch. Never crashed before that, never crashed after. I have always said exactly that. The comment below talked about crashing on day one, my answer was honest.

Same with Uplay. I have not had a problem. Am I saying problems do not exist? No. Am I saying you won't have any? No. I am speaking from personal experience, which is all I can do.


The simple fact is I don't have this problem anywhere else. I speak my mind and never lie and am mostly respected and have good debates. Only here do people label me as things (shill, anti-steam, contrarian) and fail to actually read what I write. The fact that's interesting from a social perspective is the only reason I occasionally still post.
