You seem to treat this like it's acceptable or something. If you went to a restaurant and ordered a steak, you'd probably complain if the steak was under or overcooked. If you went to a movie and the first half hour of the movie had no sound, you'd probably complain too. Similarly, if I pay $50 for a game and can't play it for a day with full functionality because of a worthless DRM scheme, I'll probably complain. Consumers should get angry when the products and services they pay for don't meet expectations. Apathetic customers are just as bad as apathetic pirates.


That said, clicking the offline button isn't the horrible thing a lot of people are making it out to be. Ubisoft is an easy target because of their past stupidity, just like EA.

Sure, you can play in offline mode but then you lose the following:
- Multiplayer
- Co-op
- Achievements (which can actually be used to unlock stuff in Uplay)

If you actually care about those things, being forced to play in offline mode isn't a good solution. Origin is a much better service than Uplay. It doesn't break your game if you lose your connection. It doesn't force you to download and install a game before you can link it to your account. It lets you choose where you wish to download and install your games. It doesn't have a very good UI but compared to Uplay, it's a masterpiece of layout and usability.
