GitHyp: " Ubisoft's New Multiplayer IP Following in the Footsteps of The Division"
damn that high. Maybe to many trolls that have no Honor.
For Honor is a really good game, but you need some commitment to unlock the full potential. And btw, losing a playerbase it's super common for the majority of the games.
Yeah you dont see it mentioned all too often that every title loses over half its playerbase within the first month. Most people only play games for a little while before they move on. Same thing with story driven SP games, statistics show on average only about 40% actually play through the whole game. Take Mass Effect 3 for example, 46% finished the game so eventhough there was alot of complaining about the ending most never even saw it.
It is fine, but they added pay to play with the gear in the game, that completely unbalance the game SEVERELY. https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
The biggest reason is that the netcode and matchmaking sucks, especially for PC gamers.
It's had a lot of sever down time, when I brought it just over a week a go I couldn't get into the single player campaign as the servers were down. But other than that I've been loving the game.
It is damn exciting to play this... and then you get bored after a few days.
It's steep learning curve will have put off a lot of people, instead of putting the effort in to improve, many will likely just throw in the towel instead. On top of that though there is just so many damn games out already this year. I love For Honor and reckon it'll be a game I'll regularly be going back to but Nioh, Horizon, Zelda, Nier and soon Mass Effect.. so many amazing games with limited time to play them all.
I threw in the towel during the beta.
The PC steam playerbase that constantly play games like Dota and Counter Strike that both have steep learning curves and repetition proves that its not the learning curve for the PC base thats the problem. Its probably something about the game that either gets boring after a bit or is a pain.
Could it be the tack on microtransanctions, lack of mod support, no lan play, very few online game modes. Server outages don't help either.
@agent Exactly what I am thinking.
Although the microtransactions won't save you from getting owned by better players, no matter what gear level you are. Also it only applies in Dominion. Then again, the matchmaking doesn't take into account gear level or class level, which it should, since I like playing Dominion.
Typical Ubisoft game
Hive mind : Always shit on Ubisoft.
That's because Ubisoft shits on gamers with their broken games.
Ubisoft has kinda earned the public's scorn. They have a lot of good ideas, but their execution is always half-assed. There's a good reason why their games don't win GOTY.
Actually Ubi deserves this. Major glitch is right, their new games might be abitious but they are always lacking. They should take a note from Guerilla Games on how to make a new IP.
People are probably shitting on Ubi because the For Honor servers have gone down like 6 times since launch. They were down for the entirety of its second weekend.
Yea the hate is justified. Look what they've done to ghost recon. They turned a pseudo arcadey Arma into a shallow just cause wanna be.
I. Think the only thing ubi has done really well is rocksmith and that really isn't a game anyway. Ghost is crap just like everything else.
Watch Dogs 2 is great. Wildlands seems solid too. But For Honor and The Division could have been handled (way) better. Still really good games at the core, nerfed by sh*tty netcode and matchmaking.
Good news for me tough, that way i can pick it up on a bargain sooner, and get it for a couple friends to
No one cares about lacking online focused games from Ubisoft
Wow, so better than The Divisive then? Wonder will it take a week for 75% of Ghost Recon fans to drop off too.
Have you seen The Division's sales figures? That was one of the best selling games of last year, for a new IP that's huge. But true though, I reached max level in like two days, took one look at the end game opportunities and haven't touched the game since.
Me and a friend were super into it, After the first week we gave up. Play a match, disconnect a match. The assassin classes have way to much stamina, you block in the proper direction and the block won't register even on a basic hit. Hope they fix it! I wanted to love this game.
I got fed up after it kicked me from 6 games in a row. Within 40 seconds of games starting. It could of been really special. What it is is really broken. A shame as the combat is intriguing and very very fresh. Mechanics and visuals let down by everything else.
What is it with Ubisoft and MMOs these days. Just stop. Its not working for you.
ummm for honor isn't an MMO... Ubisoft hasn't released an MMO
They all playing Wildlands now. Isn't that what most people do stop playing one game when a new one comes out?
Modern gaming in a nutshell..... Let's jump onto the next shiny hype train or rather sheep mentaility
I hope they're not playing wildlands. It's trash. It's definitely not a ghost recon game. At all. Tom Clancys name should never be attached to it.
It's loot system bothers me.
The Division was anti play with your friends whats this games excuse ?
well i'm not surprised the game is very much shallow with little content
I wasn't even going to buy For Honor but my friends talked me into it. About 50hours in and I'm still hooked. The game is incredible. In a time full of all the same online games releasing and not adding much innovation I can't recommend For Honor enough. Sure the peer to peer gives issues and there's cheaters. There's also a steep learning curve but the game is excellent.
Think a lot of people will be tempted come the next Steam sale. With some refinement I think it's got some legs on it yet but obviously it's never good to drop so many users.
I've considered buying this and many other multiplayer games for my PC. But history keeps repeating itself with bad player numbers on PC versions. The exception is various moba games.
The online is unique and sets you up well but other games are on my mind already
Got bored with this game 30 mins into the beta
That's not even enough time to get through the training. Your opinion is invalid.
Yea it was, got done with the training played a online match and deleted it.
Gorgeous game but to repetitive and gets boring. another ubisoft flop.
Doesn't this happen with most games ?
Woops. Seems like them multiplayer-focused games are getting somewhat less and less preferable by people. No surprise there - the more there is of something, the less interested you are bound to become.
Maybe people don't like the fact that it uses peer-to-peer servers instead of dedicated. Also don't help that you are forced to use Uplay and I know alot of people don't like to. Personally I don't mind Uplay though. I tried the closed beta and I just could not get into it. It had a relatively steep learning curve and the payoff didn't seem worth it. If you were 2v1, you are pretty much screwed.
hahaha I knew it... This game crash and burned like Evolve in terms of player base after a few weeks Come April it will probably be available brand new for $20-25
I haven't played since I've gotten Nioh and horizon zero dawn. I plan on going back to play it again tho.
Now the division...thats a different story. I have no motivation to go back and finish that game lol. I mean the new stuff, I beat the game .
Ahahah mediocre game, deal with it
Good. F*** ubisoft and it's forced online shite.
Sold my ps4 copy after a week from launch. Great game core but plagued by poor p2p connections, rage quit idiots, poor match making, poor character balancing (people only use the OP peacemaker, orochi, nobushi, warden).
I think the biggest issue with For Honor and other games that rely mainly on multiplayer commitment is that they don't offer a true good single player connection. They should take lesson from Dark Souls where the single player experience is hands down the draw that makes players want to continue playing and the multiplayer adds a very well thought out game variance that is enjoyable in its own rights. For Honor lacks that true great single player experience and simply slaps us with a mediocre version of the single player that doesn't draw players into playing past initial play days.
P2P connection, people waking up finally.
