Does the "offline mode" work-around not work 100%?

If it does, this isn't always-on DRM. If there's a button saying "I don't want your DRM to be on", then it's not always-on DRM. It may still be shitty, which is why I'm on the fence about buying it (especially as it's not on Steam, which I quite like), just not always-on.

I haven't played Far Cry 3 yet but I attached about 8 games to the Uplay client and played some games through it. It seemed to work exactly the same as Steam, there is an offline mode and every game (even previously always online ones) launched through offline mode with the internet unplugged.
