Ubisoft's DRM authentication servers for Silent Hunter 5 and Assassin's Creed II are being hit with a DDoS attack, blocking legit gamers from playing.
Gamers trying to play Silent Hunter 5 and Assassin's Creed II over the weekend might have been unable to due to Ubisoft's DRM server being down.
Apologies to anyone who couldn’t play ACII or SH5 yesterday. Servers were attacked which limited service from 2:30pm to 9pm Paris time
95% of players were not affected, but a small group of players attempting to open a game session did receive denial of service errors
Shortly after, Ubisoft added the following tweet, expressing its pleasure in its war against piracy.
We're happy to say ACII & SH5 are withstanding the efforts to crack them. We see the rumors but still confirm no valid cracked versions exist
Those behind the attacks haven't given up. Ubisoft most recently tweeted again:
Our servers are under attack again. Some gamers are experiencing trouble signing in. We're working on it and will keep you posted
