So it's easy.

Don't buy the next ubisoft game. Write them

1st Floor, Chertsey Gate East,
London Street,
Chertsey, Surrey, KT16 8AP

and tell them it looked like a great game. You probably would have bought it, but as you don't have an internet connection all the time. You're not going to and you bought (insert competitor title here) instead.

No - Money means the game failed.

Ubisoft are a businees, no money coming in, means they failed.

Vote with your pocket.

Funnily enough, there have been very little hardware problems with OSX...
