I hope Ubisoft is reading this, & if not, anyone is more than welcome to guide me to the correct path as this is my first time posting here...
I'm an avid lover if AC games like millions more, & I have read & viewed many posts & videos pinpointing what I am about to say here as well, so hopefully Ubisoft can read it with care & consider applying these modifications, as I know it won't take a flick of finger in coding or adjusting in a title update for example, & the things requested by me & many many more are but very little yet very effective in a better gameplay experience I'm sure...
1- I'm sure everyone speaks a lot about the bugs & glitches & I'm sure they're maybe being handled or discussed elsewhere, but in this one, I'll only mention a couple so as not to bore you...; " Flying Eivor"!
Sometimes he/ she flies off all of a sudden & travels like a plane with wings, then dies suddenly, that is if he/ she doesn't get stuck in a wall or trying to climb a ladder or stops suddenly as the whole game crashes & dies & I have to restart it. Fix it, thank yo
Another thing, the quest items that don't disappear even after completing them, like the the swords of lerion daughters for examples, I know I shouldn't be picky, & it doesn't annoy me much as the following issues I will elaborate on, but come on, a game of this magnitude... It's just by default that these things are a must... P.s. Lerion estate not written on the map, yet you leave things like " the ruined tower" ! Very nice!!!
One last bug, in Vinland, Eivor if stayed without a bow or a weapon & wanted to go fist fighting, which I know isn't ideal, but say I got a hankering for it, the character stops inflicting damage & doesn't hit after a while or during a conflict that is longer than 10 seconds. He/ she gets paralyzed!
2- Hunting & Hunter deliveries...; For the love of God, I know that you already have difficulties in the game & should anyone chooses to become explorative & plays the hardest difficulty, it's completely fine by me, but for us the folks that chose easy, why on earth after I hit a Reindeer with an arrow - that's only used for example purposes, but that problem is malignant among alllll animals, except only for a specific animal or 2- that I don't get the required antler or whatever it's supposed to give each single time!! You say you want the game to be as realistic as possible, like in the movies in today's age & era, & your attention to detail is already astounding, so why do you have to ruin it by not giving me the expected outcome of hunting a specific animal or bird, yeah... Ravens not giving feathers but leather, hilarious!! Are you freaking kidding me, it's so hilarious if I wasn't so annoyed by it.... How on earth do I hunt or kill a bird & not get a single feather or a heron beak , or a seal tail!!!! Alllll seals have tails & all reindeer have antlers & all sheep have bones!!!, it's common sense guys, not getting bones off animals, come on... Please , really, again, you can do that if you like for the harder difficulties... Which is still ridiculous,but honestly, fine by me, for us silly folks, who choose (easy), fix the hunting experience to include whatever that animal has every single time I shoot it down, Bloody hell, pardon my french, every deer & Reindeer has Antlers!! Real life or game life! & I'm sure it's not gonna cost you a lot of work, for the geniuses out there... Truly...
p.s. can you consider adding hunting maps instead of having us running around like idiots in the vast lands...& I'm not talking about " rivers & seas & coasts of..."!!! Hilariousssss I tell you...., It's a game, how much can a game really ask, I'm supposed to have fun & travel & watch & interact, not hate my life,hake, even real life hunting seasons & freaking bears even know exactly where to look for game ( no pun intended), just add maps for animals, & we're willing to pay whatever cost is necessary, You can see where number 3 is leading, lol
3- Fishing...lol, you have got to be kidding me... Big, regular & small! Fine, no problem, but pleaseeeeeee, an actual useful map for them wouldn't hurt, not these jokes that are sold in the trade shops, again, how much can a game ask of a gamer, I mean come on, Eivor can use eagle vision or Odin sight or whatever, but he/ she can't keep it long enough to detect which is which?! Yet the guards stay red long enough because of skill! How about a skill for the fishes huh? For us silly folks who just want to enjoy playing & not commit suicide by boredom & again running like fools in the vast waters!!!
please consider adding a skill or an ability that identify the fish, again it's not gonna cost you much, you already are adding abilities in the next title update... Or enhance the Raven vision to detect them,come onnnn, eagles live on Hunting in the waters in real life & videogame isn't giving me that feature?! ( Eagle or Raven, whatever... I can buy shapes by buying helix credits, but you can't add actual abilities to these shapes, of the mounts or ravens, only gear, ..-. That's another thing, btw, anyway back to the matter at hand)- OR increase the Odin sight long enough for us weakly vision guys to identify them, or better yet, pleaseeee just add respectable maps that ppl can follow , & trust me, I'm ready to pay a thousand silver for it inside the game or whatever you see fit in Helix, God, I miss the Ezio games with their maps & every little thing.
p.s. if all the above fail to be achieved, you already have dots that identify names of towns & anchors that identify port fast travels, you can at least add just teeny tiny colored dots for the singular fishing pathways in Norway & england
4- please consider adding specific abilities to The many birds or mounts you have in the store or inside the game, even if just one or 2 for a group of them to share. For example, having to ride a wolf that is useless against other wolves of his family, esp if it's double it's size is hilarious. Come on guys, I already praise your attention to detail, Don't let us down.
5- i really really really want to buy gear inside the game from trade shops... But I'm always stopped by thinking, that arrow is just a name that scares little kids, I can't tell if it's a predator, Hunter or light, untill I buy it... Seems unfair, Don't you think?! Not to mention, I can't tell if upgrading it will be worth it untill I buy it, which is completely unfair.... You can totally add In an info section that shows it's stats after the upgrade & give me the freedom to choose before buying it, instead of filling my inventory with junk weapons that I had to buy & upgrade, not to mention the silver lost I had to downgrade these weapons with better used elsewhere... Same with reda stuff & Animus store stuff... Add More Info please, same goes with the rest of the gear & Armor.
6- Tattoos & ship decorations & settlement stuff, whenever I get new ones, I can't tell if it's good or not, owing to how small viewing it is in the inventory, are you purposely trying to blind us, please add an enhancement to magnify them a bit whenever I point at them
7- why can't I sell my unused weapons & materials?! Ppl only buy runes, & trinkets, I see... My bad...!!
what the actual fudge, pleaseeee guys....if a game like AC origins is good, & has these features don't change future games, only enhance, not crapify, please add that function, blacksmith do sell & buy weapons too you know & again for the millionth time, & I have considered adding this sentence for all the above requests, but feared for the sanity of the respected readers of my article, lol, & amazing gamers out there who I'm sure agree with me- (( IF YOU WANT TO MAKE IT MORE CHALLENGING SOMEHOW, please leave it as it is in the hardest difficulty, but for us folk who like it silly & easy, please add these things.... You know,harder difficulties doesn't always mean JUST harder or more enemies!! How much can a GAME ask, it's supposed to be fun, remember?))
8- this one I know many have asked, So I won't make an essay of it! Please go easy on us & increase the strategy & stealth back, RPG is fine & all, if I wanted RPG , I'll go buy RPG games... Please don't ruin a good thing, God I miss the Ezio games.
9- now this one is very very good, & I heard tell that the answer from Ubisoft was, ( we ran out of buttons in the controller).... Guys, you're more respectable than that... The issue is adding a secondary bow, like the AC origins game which helps all my fellow gamers & me react faster in big boss fights or even small ones should we run out of arrows for the primary one or should we just decide that the functionality is needed for it, anyway, we all know what I am talking about, & I'm sure many of you my fellows out there already came up with many solutions... Mine is, simply.... Add it in the quick wheel dum dums, pardon my french again, you have cute stuff there like "start raid" lol, so why not attach a secondary bow there for easy access... Geeez, you already ruined a good Mechanism in AC origins, why use brains to try to fix it ryt?! & Again I'm sure it's not gonna cost you much for the brilliant coders out there ... & Again if you wanted a challenge etc etc etc,
Leave us the ( easy ) difficulty guys etc etc etc...
10- I'm sure there's many more,but I must have bored you guys long enough, & I do want to apologize for everyone if I seemed angry or annoyed, it's not my intention to insult anyone, esp when I recognize the hard work any team puts into such a massive endeavor.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, the community or Ubisoft, I really appreciate it.
