We are allowed 360+ installs over the next 10 years, and we don't have to be online to play. Seems a small price to pay to help protect our sims genre from total collapse.

How that ties in with the steam 'just use any computer with your steam details to log in' I have no idea.
Lots of games have 3rd party DRM on top of Steam. Not that I understand why but it's a fact - even though that's usually cracked just as quickly. But then again we still do not know if maybe a 1C/non-Ubi version with Steam as the only DRM, and without Solidshield/Tages, might be available to buy from Steam.

Lots of unknowns about the actual release

You have a contract with them one would assume and we all know contracts work both ways so please, get on the phone and tell UBI to get a grib and sort it out.

We are two and a half weeks from release and we are still getting conflicting information in all areas and it looks ridiculous.

DRM, first it was TAGES, then it was Solidshield, now with added Steam. Which is it?

How about some positive information on release? Colectors editions in countries other than the UK? Normal boxed copies? Steam release schedules? Availability of boxed copies from sources other than UBI?

If the March 25th release is genuine as we have been told then why on earth is this information not forthcoming from UBI? Are they your publisher in the west or not?

If I was about to launch the results of a 5 or 6 year project that I wanted to be a success I'd be utterly livid with UBI's lacklustre and frankly pathetic handling of the situation.

Somebody over at UBI needs a damn good kick up the backside or are they just regurgitaing what they've been told and it's all down to your department? Something I find difficult to believe given your confirmed worldwide release in 18 days.
I agree. I take it 1C is kinda "trapped" with Ubisoft and signed a deal it's hard to get out of yet.

Ubisoft's Steam catalogue has no mention of CoD:IL-2 in it. At all. I hope 1C made a "2 game deal" with Ubisoft so that they after CoD:IL-2 release are free to cancel the partnership and go to a more serious publisher. Budget or no budget, Ubisoft, your advertising of CoD is pretty much non existant. Especially when we see that it's going to be distributed via Steam.

Quite possible - and judging by how Ubisoft handles this release, they may very well feel the same

One of those "error encountered, cant authorize" type messages.

But it seems their may be alternate way to activate it, by phone.

Possibly. You can also generate a manual activation code by visiting their website or something similar, I heard somewhere, if you'd like to guarantee it works.
