MMX is currently unplayable due to awesome DRM implementation. Why? Why in 2017 I must search for torrent-version for the game that is barely 3 years old >_>?

Because the game cant see Ubi server, its impossible to add any content. And due to awesome DRM implementation the game aslo tink its "early accsess" demo version with just first act. http://steamcommunity.com/app/238750...5331498017021/

Its possible to bypass greyed out dialog by editing .xml file =)

I have also read there are problems with uplay, (latest version) you have to downgrade it, (by installing an older version) and not update it to allow some of the older games to work. As the latest version can't seem to see the server. Nice going ubisoft, as many gamers are in the same boat.

I remember some years ago when DRM was completely out of control to the point that things like SecuRom and StarForce were being challenged in court as literal rootkits. Glad to see Ubisoft has learned precisely nothing.

Well, some developers learned that Starforce dosent improve sales hard way. The smartes of them patched they games to disable this shit after some time, like Katauri did for Kings bounty.
