So you thought that you didn't need Uplay installed to play Heroes VII? So did I, actually; the devs said it was needed for a one-time activation and that you need it to have access to all features (such as cloud saves), but that was all. So I did all that, but I eventually got bored with the sluggishness of Uplay and decided to get rid of it. What happened?
Yeah so it turns out that you don't just need Uplay for a one-time activation, you need it installed in order to run the game - even if it was bought through Steam.
I'll be damned if Ubisoft are going to decide what I have installed on my PC. So I'm done with Heroes VII.
Hey, Ubisoft? One last thing.
