I personally have been dissuaded from purchasing ubisoft titles for this reason. When I purchased For Honor, I could not play it because of a launcher error. Steam counted the launching of uplay as me “playing the game”. After struggling to launch for over two hours I try to get a refund just to be told that I’ve “played too long” for that to happen. Never launched the damn game since. Will never buy another Rockstar game either, because it stole my PC version and locked it behind the ps4 account. These launchers will end up making me save money in the long run so I say let this poorly thought out business decision take its ugly course much like microtrasnsactions. You’ve lost a customer for good.
