Thank you ( not ) Ubisoft

Ok, I made the mistake to buy this game. Great environments but gameplay is very limited. Colour and B&W are constantly switching which is really boring. Projected text/images are cool, except you get one for any damn action possible ( which of course is ruining the game immersion ).

BUT, the worst thing is having to constantly wait for your ing servers to be available. Even when you can log in, you wait ingame for a connection. That is the worst DRM ever made. How you can charge $60 for this is beyond me.

When I say "wait' I mean 10-15 mn without being able to get a connection to the servers, not a 10 seconds wait

Maybe it's your ISP, I live on southamerica (really bad connection to ubisoft servers) and I don't have any problems login to DRM servers or multiplayer servers (connection takes like 2-5 seconds) , my only problem it's when I join a multiplayer game, my games slows down , mouse feels laggy too, really bad optimized netcode.

Hang on, if you have to wait before you are allowed to play the single player, how is that OP's fault and not ubi's? I believe that the pirates already have this working, and they don't have to wait. There is something critically wrong here. Not least of all I cant play this game, because it is not available in the UK, and I only know one US girl, and she is on holiday.

How could it be my problem, considering I can log into my account in the Ubi Launcher and start the game but have to wait to connect ingame?

The problem is with Ubisoft's server. I didn't say it's happening all the time, I said it's ing boring to have to wait for some server to give you the go while you have paid full price for a game.
