Ubisoft encourages piracy
@perun29 It's atrocious. When a games company makes the games you can buy from them worse than the version you can pirate, they are asking people to pirate their games - including their new ones. Why would you pay for something from a company that has a track record of stealing from you? Why would you ever feel guilty about stealing from that company?
I liked Ubisoft games, especially Assassin's Creed. I would like to keep supporting them and that franchise. I can't, however, justify doing any more knowing that they stole from me and they will probably eventually steal anything I buy from them in the future.
Why would I ever buy another game from a company which steals from me?
Nobody, I think, expects that a game company will run multiplayer servers indefinitely. However, when a company sells you single player DLC and then takes it from you - deleting season pass content from your account, downgrading deluxe editions to standard editions, removing access to single player DLC? That's just theft. Why would you think I would buy any new games from you when you steal purchases I've made in the past?
If you wanted to remove online components, you could have added the DLC into the standard version of the main game and removed the need to do the DRM check in with servers. But instead you just decided to steal from your customers.
This is one of three Uplay accounts I have. I've bought some of Ubisoft's games multiple times to play them on different systems. I've been a subscriber to Ubisoft plus for extended periods.
You can say that it's so you can allocate resources to new games but that's no good to me because as long as this is your policy I'll never see those new games. I will never buy another game from Ubisoft as long as I know that it's Ubisoft policy to steal purchases from their customers. It's sad how far Ubisoft has fallen - but unless they restore what I've paid for, I'm done with them as a company.
Can you turn off map packs yet?
Is there ANY way for me to play a game without the store map packs enabled? I made an impulse purchase when I was playing the game back close to release and I stopped playing as it completely ruined the exploration aspect that I enjoyed. IIRC the store page described it as adding a filter meaning I assumed I could turn it off.
To be clear, I want to play the game with the map as it was before - with the coloured lights and you don't know what it will be until you get there. Turning the filters off just makes the map blank.
Has anyone even had any luck with getting them to remove or from their account? If it's a case that it's baked into save files I'd even delete those and start from scratch just to have the have back to the way it was supposed to be
It really bums me out that I gave Ubisoft MORE money to end up having a game that's measurably less fun and they won't let me take it back - I even tried playing the version on Stadia and it has the map pack enabled too - there seems to be no escape.
