Ubisoft's DRM Failure

The Ubisoft Forums have posts from customers who were unable to play games protected by Ubisoft's online DRM yesterday because the DRM servers were offline. Needless to say most of the posts express severe unhappiness at being unable to play and express anger over a DRM scheme that locks paying customers out of their own game. This Ubisoft tweet explains: "Apologies to anyone who couldn’t play ACII or SH5 yesterday. Servers were attacked which limited service from 2:30pm to 9pm Paris time," and this one follows up: "95% of players were not affected, but a small group of players attempting to open a game session did receive denial of service errors."

Considering the garbage they're spewing regarding just about every aspect of this DRM issue, I can't help but suspect that trying to attribute their downtime to "DDoS attacks" is just a pathetic attempt to shift blame to something else than the fact that their system just doesn't work. I'd be surprised if their "attacks" were anything else than customers trying to futilely play their games, and the servers just not being able to handle it.
