    @longjohn119 If you cant do ultra on that 5700, the problem is on your side.

    I call Bull ...... Maybe if you like 30 FPS @ 1440p ....... The RTX 2080 Super I replaced it with literally runs circles around it ...... And the drivers aren't buggy AF, it doesn't sound like a plane taking off under stress and it runs Odyssey @ 53C compared to the RX 5700 75-80 C ...... And I can do Ray Tracing ..... Love AMD's CPUs but the RX 5700 was a huge disappointment that cause AMD to lose 17 points of Market Share to Nvidia in the last half of 2019 ..... As an AMD shareholder that is simply unacceptable

    1. Bird is quite useful and a cool feature. Added functionality with an ability later on.
    2. New to AC as seems okay.
    3. Eivor is well-rounded.
    4. Chainmail bikinis more your speed? 😉
    5. Combat is GREAT imo. It constantly evolves with skills (esp. the likes of Brush with Death, Stomp and Missile Reversal) and weapon types. I replayed DA: Inquisition before this game and AC: Valhalla is an astronomical improvement on all movement and combat (and almost every other aspect as well).
    6. Nah.
    7. Good.
    8. Storyline is decent for me so far.
    9. Seen comparisons with the last AC and Valhalla is as good or better.
    10. Really like how loot is handled in this game. In DA: Inquisition the crafting/loot system was totally borked and OP. Ruined your gaming experience.
    11. Really like both the skill tree and the skills. My criticism would be that you are forced to go blind. This is easily circumvented by easy resetting skills (which I like) and feels not well thought-out.
    12. Neo-communist woke-a-thon still not as obtrusive as in DA: Inquisition for instance.
    13. Nah. I dislike large hubs where too many quests intersect. Gameplay is nicely balanced among urban and rural areas.
    14. Not useless. Just not essential as in more loot-driven RPGs.

    @longjohn119 How many people are having graphical quality problems because of the bug in the game that sets the Resolution Scaling to less than 100% with the default settings ...... When I first started playing I noticed I was getting 10-15 FPS better than Odyssey @1440p with what I thought were the same settings and then saw that the Resolution Scaling was set to 80% ..... I set it to 100% and the graphics improved and the FPS was more in line with what I was getting in Odyssey ..... I crashed only 1 time in 18 hours, never noticed any stuttering once I turned down Volumetric Clouds a notch .... Everything else is maxed out except Motion Blur and Depth of Field both of which I have off because I don't like them ...... Depth of Field is especially bad in that it can make things look blurrier even outside of cut scenes ..... Spending $500 on a graphics card for crisp high resolution graphics only to intentionally blur things so it looks like you are looking through a camera lens just seems counterproductive IMO

    @matt_gb What's wrong with the horse?

  • longjohn119
    ubisoft:x-posts, 1368

    @redw0lfalpha Horse always worked just fine for me in Odyssey, a bigger problem is the bows are broken in Valhalla and you can't lock on to anything so you can't do like in this example but I hope they fix it sooner rather than later ......

  • Redw0lfAlpha

    @longjohn119 that was so satisfying to do that in Odyssey! And yes hopefully it will be fixed.

    @revenskrev But this is just your opinion, I respect that and I am glad that you like the game. But I disagree with pretty much everything you said. Talking about the loot and rewards now.

    A proper open world RPG should have enough loot and enough variety in amors and weapons. I dont mind not having much options or variety in more linear, more corridor like games when I expect it, but in an open world RPG, which relies heavily on exploration a proper amount od diferrent weapons and armors is a must, also as proper rewards for explorig. Sadly Valhalla fails terribly in this area, there is not enough weapons in the game but even worse there is almost no variety in armors no options there is only 10 armors in the whole game that is just not enough, there is way too little loot and rewards for exploration is a joke.

    Yes it is my opinion, but as you can see here on the forum or around internet roughly half the players have the same feeling and that is a lot to consider it a problem and a bad desicion in game design. As I see it the new loot system is only build to please the players who didnt like the Odyssey style loot, but the kinda forgot that there was also a lot of players who loved the loot system in Odyssey, who loved that amount of variety and the customization options. Ubisoft failed to find a middle ground a compromise which will please both sides and thats just dissapointing.

    I would say the game is good but not great. I'm enjoying it so far but I don't find myself engaged in the story like I did with Odyssey. The graphics look great one minute and then like it's running on PS3 the next. The combat is clunky and delayed. Also, there are bugs etc that can impact the gameplay itself. I think once a decent patch comes out that addresses the technical issues this game has then it should be a solid title but personally I would not say the best in the series but that's my personal opinion.

    @redw0lfalpha I don't think there's a problem with the actual mount but for me I cannot shoot my bow when looking behind even after eivor does a 180 it still won't let me. I can only shoot Infront of me and probably 45 degrees to each side

    @martygod12 Well I came across with Flying Whales and swimmers wolfs so far. I was hunting one and he literally went off to the sea lol.

    Sorry, but these kinds of comments makes me laugh. RPG is *NOT* about collecting huge amounts of loot constantly. That is a cheap MMO trick, or clicky Diablo clones to make up for being light on actual roleplaying throughout. I HATE that so many so-called roleplaying games forces you to play the role of a compulsive pack-mule scavenger. Looting defeated enemies is good, but not generally for their armor and weapons, stripping everything bare to accumulate wealth in order to afford overpriced and overpowered gear at your next trader. Rinse and repeat ad nauseam. Gathering resources like in Valhalla is an elegant solution to this issue and it fits well with the narrative of the story. Valhalla is an unpolished gem released a month too early, but your issues are matters of personal taste that are shallow anti-roleplaying MMORPG tropes rather that flaws.

    @Revenskrev

    Sorry, but this is just ridiculous.

    They claimed exploration would be rewarding. And when almost every chest contains a few of the same 2 resources, does that feel rewarding to you? For me the answer is simple: hell no!

    Sorry, but I the real "laughable" thing in this debate, is that you seem to believe there are only two options: loot everywhere or almost none. There are plenty of other options the devs could have gone for. Not to mention, you call our taste "shallow" when you're the one defending the most shallow loot system I've ever seen.

    @vlerk2020
    true, exactly...the world is so empty and the raven is almost useless, unable to auto tags enemies, this features is so good but really a let down without it..

  • PotatoePet

    @djandrew1984 Tbh I prefer eagle vision / odins sight a lot more than the eagle of Odyssey/Origins. Spotting all enemies from far away feels way too overpowered. But yea, the eagle/raven if kept in-game further should have a bit more functionality like actually working like intended. As far as I have understood it should show you hidden passages etc.

    It mostly doesn't. One time it did for me. If they fix that I am fine with the abilities of the raven.

  • PotatoePet
    ubisoft:x-posts, 316

    @netspook It is somewhat rewarding (if you loot the big chests to upgrade your gear which makes it look different and have better stats). These are very worthy materials to gather. But yea, the other chests are only containing iron and leather. And you need ridiculous amounts of iron and leather to upgrade in later tiers (like 1000 iron, 800 leather)

    Imagine somebody adding 1000 iron ore to an axe... It's just there for people to get depressed they don't have enough materials so they buy "time saver" microtransactions. So yea, I would prefer making looting worthwhile. The materials to upgrade armor and weapons at a blacksmith are good tho.

    But all these other chests shouldn't just be the same 2 mainly worthless things all over again with an inflated upgrade system to make people pay for these resources. If they add upgrades why don't they add craftable armor from a blacksmith? So this loot could be invested in different ways. They should add some NPC armors to vendors in the cities. They all share the same inventory. Pretty disappointing. I don't want to have 1000 all samey armor pieces in my inventory so I prefer the way they've done it now that every piece is unique and special and not level gated (with upgrades to make you pay).

    @rumenrs I started with Origins and loved it. Loved Odyssey even more. This game sucks. Combat is horrible. I don't even use the abilities. Most areas around the settlement are too high level to raid. No direction at all unless you follow the main quest line. Side quests are far away and take you to areas that are such a high level you get one shot by anyone. I should have waited until it has been out for a year or more so they could fix the bugs and I could buy it on sale. Paid over $100 for the game and couldn't even use a 20% off code because the game is a new release. Not happy with this version of Assassin's Creed at all!

    @rumenrs a bit late to the party here. But wanted to play more first before commenting on this. But yeah. It’s weird. I am playing on 4K HDR10 Ultra high / high on everything with my 3070 super on a 56” television and sometimes the game looks amazing. But most of the time I agree with you. The game looks ugly I feel about 60 - 70% of the time I am playing it. So much so I am always going back to my settings to see if they changed to a lower setting for some reason. I personally think it’s do to all the distances fog/haze they have everywhere. It gives the game this feel like there is a film over the game or almost like the brightness is turned up all the way, even when it’s not. I feel if they got rid of 80% of that damn pointless fog it look better. But have to have some cheap way to cover up the terrible background rendering in the distance. The story in this one doesn’t really grab you in anyways nor really make you care to much about what is going on. The combat is not to great either on top of that. Nothing feels like it really has weight and doesn’t feel good when you hit things. Unlike other games in similar settings and weapons like God Of War 2018. I personally think despite enemies being to spongy. Odyssey was a far better game. I totally agree with you on this. About graphics and more.

    @emitfudd I hated side quests on here too. In odyssey they felt more panned out and like they all had weight and plot behind them even if they were only 15 minutes long. In the game some of them can be finished in like 2 minutes and don’t have any cutscenes.

    @scooch111 Yeah this decision I also dont understand, yes in Odyssey many of the side quests were repetitive and shallow, but there were also a plenty of great quests or even quest lines which told another stories from the Greece besides the main story (sometimes linked to the story somehow) like Mykonos rebellion, or Euboia Dagger quests or the Messara questline etc. etc. In Valhalla all those world encounters are just a 1-2 minutes long somehow childisch and funny sketches I really dont care much for that. Example when I came across a girl calling a horse which stood on the other side of the river, all I had to do is go to fetch the horse and bring it back to her, when the horse was literally 30meters away from her. like what? Thats a side quest ? So ridiculous.
