The four or five occasions it has crashed on me so far, it landed at an “Ooops! It’s crashed” window in Uplay, where you can send a crash report. I wonder if the crash has caused a conflict with your privacy/firewall settings in some way? Have you tried launching Uplay in offline mode?
Edit: just googled “can Uplay be started in offline mode?” And this was the first hit:
Also, if you wish to force the client to start directly in offline mode, you can tick the Always start Uplay in Offline Mode box in the client Settings, or via the main menu by selecting Go Offline. While in Offline Mode, most features will be unavailable, but you can start your game from the Games tab as usual.
