I've installed the steam version of the Early Access of Might & Magic 10, but when I start it, the game window shows up for a split second, then closes. A few seconds later, the Uplay client starts up with the status message "Getting proxy" while a wheel is spinning, probably forever, if I let it.

I usually don't bother buying Ubisoft games because of their extra DRM, but I'd really like to play M&M10 (im gullible). Thus I've never had to deal with uplay on other steam games of mine. The logfile suggests there's something in regards to mono? I tried to add it through the "Install components" but it diddn't change anything.
I've multiple other games installed on this PLO virtual steam folder, including newer games like Civ5 BNW which doesn't give me any issues.
M&M10 came out as Early Access a few days ago, so I haven't been able to google up any solutions for it yet. I tried looking up the issue with uplay and the proxy message on previous games, but I wasn't successful at finding anything concrete.
In advance, thank you for reading through my issues and for taking the time to possibly find a solution - if able! I read the stickies, and hope I'm supplying sufficient information. If not, please let me know, and I'll edit my post to add any missing details.
