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.
