And you work where at ubisoft? You can't not have had problems with uplay if you have actually used it. You are either a lying fanboy trying to protect your source of worship or you are hired by ubisoft and have been told to do damage control....
Not having any problems at all with uplay would be as sensational as having indisputable picture proof of Jesus walking on water.
That's ridiculous. Neither you nor the article have even mentioned any specific problems with uPlay. You can put me on the list as another having never had any problems with uPlay, unless you consider being told to change your password due to a potential security breach once in five years to be a problem, which is hardly unique to Ubisoft. The Google Authenticator integration may be a pain in the arse, but Steam's version isn't exactly innocent there (after problems with my phone, I've only just managed to resume Steam card trading after four weeks of troubleshooting).
I don't use pirated software or try to cheat in-game. Maybe that's your problem.
Well, the evolution of DoW 2 technically already happened with "Space Marine" which kind of turned out to not work all that well for THQ (as they were counting on that game to save them). I'm not saying the game was bad, it just wasn't the game enough of us wanted. So if Relic plans on making a DoW 3, it damned well better be a proper RTS like the original. Hell i'd be happy enough if they just remastered said original (with expansions) and bundled it up into one game. I'd happily throw my money at Relic for that alone..
