Every time a friend makes an action on Uplay my future Soldier closes as if I've hit exit game and I get the uplay "thanks for playing" message
this happens at any point in the game when a friend logs on / off uplay or starts / stops playing any of their games

I've tried the following with zero success:

disable all uplay notification/overlay/cloud (basically any option uplay gives me to change ive tried it in various combinations)
reinstalled both uplay and Future Soldier (ensuring all files are removed including saves)
installed on a fresh copy of windows with only updated drivers uplay and game
changed all game exe's to compatibility mode
removed friends and re added them
modified any setting I could find relating to friends on uplay web interface
unlinked social media and console profiles from account

I have several other uplay games Splinter Cell conviction / Blacklist , Farcry 3 , assassin's creed 3 .. none of these suffer from this issue

when the game runs it runs perfect 60+fps on default settings @ 1080p no issues at all till a friend does something.(plays a game etc)

If anyone can offer any help it would be much appreciated, Obviously an easy solution would be remove my friends sadly that's not an option as I play co-op with them on games that require them to be added

Hmm can't seem to find any sort of solution that you haven't already tried. It's a very strange problem to have lol.

Im having the same problem but maybe a bit different...

Everything is the same except that my game crashes after a minute after entering into the main menu. The game doesnt crash if my friend (who bought the game at the same time when i did) plays with me.

Did you ever find an answer to this?
I'm getting exactly the same here. It's fine the other way around (their game doesn't crash when I login/launch the game/whatever).
Really stumped.

Thanks!

UPDATE: JUST FOUND SOMETHING THAT APPEARS TO AVOID THIS FOR NOW...
I've set Uplay to 'Offline' mode (via the cog/settings icon in the top-right), and then launched the game. We can still play together, but it hasn't (yet) crashed after a number of attempts with them logging in/out of Uplay & the game. So for now, I've set my Uplay to 'always start in offline mode' from the 'Network' section of the settings.
CLARIFICATION: (obviously?) in order to play together, whoever is set to 'offline' will need to do the inviting.

UPDATE 2: Well, this seemed to be working yesterday, but now when I'm set to offline I don't get the Shift+F2 overlay, and friend can no longer join me (despite receiving the invite & opting to connect) - it gives them error "connection was dropped". I'm starting to wonder if this is something to do with being on the same LAN. Back to being stumped!

UPDATE 3: Here's another method to try (this one is working for me now)...
Launch the game as normal, with Uplay online.
Once the game has started, ALT+TAB back to Uplay & go 'offline'.
This may give a warning that you should close your game first, but don't do that.
Instead, allow UPlay to force-quit.
The game will continue running, and you should still be able to invite friends to join your game.
The SHIFT+F2 Uplay overlay doesn't work though.
