Uplay

I just purchased Heroes of Might & Magic VII and noticed my new gaming rig didn't have Uplay installed.

So I did this and went through the 2FA hoops and such.

Then I noticed a many of you sent Friend requests on Uplay, I just accepted them all

Jebus, I wasn't even aware that uplay has a friends system. Then again, who ever needs to directly open that portal when everything is booted through Steam

Apparently they have added some features and yes I had to reinstall the Uplay and enable 2FA on the system.

Mah, will not purchase again something I already own there...

Need to find jmmijo's account there, so I can bug him with ridiculous questions, as always... Request sent to both of you.

Just installed client, I have 26 games there.

Usually the Steam games you purchase get BOUND to the Uplay account

That is what my account shows.

So probably since I did not purchase any of those through steam, that is why I have only UPlay version.

IIRC 2 HumbleBundles with all UPlay games.

That might be, but I've not purchased from Humble Bundle in awhile.

Just receiving some free games from some of you folks out there

Of all the subscription services, UBISOFTS is the best, every game comes with all the DLC or ultimate versions.

Really annoys me that for the others you pay a subscription fee and still have to buy DLC, what if I don't want the subscription anymore, do I get a refund on the DLC i brought that I can no longer use

I did not even know that. I had similar question with XGP - but I have not checked it yet. Will install one of Paradox games to check if they give DLCs or not. (Paradox is DLC-bloatware company)

XGP doesn't include DLC, well for Forza Horizon 3 t doesn't anyway. I think old games have the "definitive editions" but the new games are just the standard editions.
