So here's the thing, I'm in the process of moving so currently all I got is my 4G for internet. Obviously I can't download massive game files and updates and so on, but I wasn't worried because I already had the game installed, and for a little while it worked without a hitch.
Today however the game just completely stopped being able to launch. Being that I can't really update (requires a 30Gb download), I fígured I would just use my 4G to log in and verify the files. Upon doing this ubisoft connect tells me it's all good and I can play, but of course to play without updating you need to restart ubisoft connect in offline mode (also incovenient but whatever). So I restart it in offline mode, and the game still won't launch, so I contact ubisoft support who basically tells me to go fk myself if I don't have wi-fi.
You might be thinking I'm overdoing this, but this means you're literally getting a better experience when pirating the game, because pirated games disconnect everything from the internet, meaning you wouldn't be dependent on it. As it stands pirated AC valhalla is actually better than paid AC valhalla, and while I don't care that others will pirate the game, it does bother me that they will literally have a better experience, and I'm not buying another ubi game til that changes.
I know ubisoft doesn't care about me or my opinion as a paying customer, but I think it's important to get this out there, so people who might be thinking of buying the game can get the whole truth before they do. I would've never bought this game, if I knew ubisoft forces their players to go online and update their games, even for single player games.
