I've read a lot of public releases. Some stating that the developers themselves are ok with this. I have a hard time believing that.
But if you did, that's too bad. You did a great job on the game mechanics - and fun factor. There are areas to be improved of course.
But nothing is worth going through this sort of abuse (DRM).

I bought AC, refunded AC2. I'm through with Ubisoft until the management realizes their part of this mess-up. Hopefully sooner, than later.

Follow bellow for a longer discussion and other input.

Army players also pretty much 'banned':
