Ubisoft DRM Madness
Ubisoft takes their DRM even further. What we knew was, that you have a cd key, which you can use on three different PC's to play your game. It's stupid, but kinda okay. Now, the DRM gives your PC a number, based on your PC specs, so it can identify it. If you change one part of your PC, for example replace the graphics card with a newer one, the number changes, using one more of the three possible activations. While the guys in the source now got their key unlocked, so you can activate more often, normal players will still have that problem.
Ubisoft driving their paying customers into piracy. I don't think that's what they intended.
