I’m upset. I had literally the best experience with AC Odyssey and I’ve had every single AC since 2007. They never ask for my opinion, but I get the 3rd watch dog and I get a survey?! [censored] Ubisoft?! I’m a Ubisoft+ member and everything... why would you guys go backwards in the AC series? Odyssey was as close to perfect and then you strip everything that made it great, throw some animal pelts on a characters shoulder, and then dumb down the isu storyline with reincarnation garbage? Wake up you guys, you’re throwing away every single fan who cares about this stuff. If you guys keep going the way you are... it’ll be another mass effect in the making... once great, now landfill clutter.

@kevinsmi97702 Where did they go backwards? There was a *lot* wrong with Odyssey - specifically the entire economy/gear levelling systems. You got a pittance of drachmas, and upgrading your gear was astronomically expensive both in materials and drachmas cost. 354 hours spent in that game, much of that time spent grinding for money/materials for my gear/ship - it was grotesquely idiotic having to spend several million drachmas in order to upgrade the engravings from Hephaistos.
Not a second spent doing any of that in Valhalla.
the gear system was way better then its in valhalla for one thing.
Its a combat game, yet in valhalla you get rewards from looting chests In Odyssey you actually got loot from slain enemies, which is just better>
They removed the entire transmog system.
They removed the armor rack where you could save various builds into with the gear saved to it.
The mastery system was a lot better.
Less game breaking bugs in odyssey
Armor in general looked better
The entire order was woven far better into the main story as well as it was into the world.
Odyssey had many challenging fights, in valhalla once you have reached lvl100 everything is extremely easy on drengr setting
Combat was way smoother
You could upgrade your bird, which very nice.

@asgardian02 100%! Spot on. The raids are pretty pointless because my crew is never in danger so they can take on everyone while I open a chest I barely worked for... there’s no sense of accomplishment. I get that grinding for currency sucks but at least in the other you had to play to get something in return. And the crow... come on... what is the point of it? I replayed odyssey and was shocked to remember that the bird actually did something... in Valhalla it is absolutely pointless.
yeah the raids were very weird, i just my crew in areas where i was way underpowered to take all the hits while sacked all the coffers.
Did lvl250 raids while i was lvl100 on drengr setting.
The castle siege sounded fun in theory until i found out you dont even need to fight, in each stage you either had to let the bridge down or force open some barricades and that would automatically result in a siege completed.
Sure at some point the repeatly area fights were kinda boring, but they were massive battles notheless which was still fun due to their scale, there is none of that in valhalla though
And enemies wont attack you all at once, the ai in valhalla is seriosuly very dumb
