    The game is great but I find myself reluctant to keep playing because even on the hardest difficulty it's too easy.

    I even deliberately neglect upgrading or improving my gear so I feel a challenge, but still too easy.
    I regret acquiring the increased rations ability. And steered away from the ability that lets Eivor "see" enemies through walls.
    I turned off the HUD so I can't see if I'm being detected and cant see HP bars etc.

    If you're vs multiple enemies then it becomes tough yes, but in a 1v1 scenario there's no challenge at all, it's too easy to parry or dodge. The window after you press parry seems too large, and there's too much time the player has to watch for the enemies attacks in order to counter.

    Enemies need to attack more frequently (giving an increased feeling of aggression and hostility). This would also make parrying / dodging harder to time. I want to feel like they want to kill me, it's their lives on the line after all.

    Enemy damage needs to be increased dramatically in order for me to feel like I should upgrade or improve equipment.

    Oddly the main bosses are balanced well. When confronting them with my insufficient gear I get repeatedly demolished. Forcing me to upgrade for the fight, only to become extremely OP vs regular infantry.

    Difficulty has always been a problem with AC games but at least there are Difficulty Sliders in the recent games. Shows that the developers do consider this. It just needs some improvements 🙂

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    Absolutely agree. Honestly jumping back to Odyssey that was actually harder when it came to combat although the new hit detection and animations feel smoother, more refined and precise, and parrying feel much better/more predictable and trustworthy.

    I redid Unity just a couple of weeks ago because I never got to finish it first time around and though that is also very easy one thing I really like from it was that you could be swamped with many enemies attacking at once. I’d rather have that than “bullet sponge” or melee sponge enemies tbh. Right now they all wait turns around you like some bad Kung Fu movie, and even worse when you have more than three enemies the others start backing away and eventually disappear completely! I want to be forced to play defensively a bit more, not be able to just stand there and wait for each attack but have to actively dodge out of the way. Sure there’s times I want to feel like a beast but a lot of the time I want to be forced to think before I act and strategize the best approach.

    I’ve been playing these games on nightmare difficulty because that feels like around normal/easy on most other games… even Ratchet & Clank.

    I don’t want to have Nioh or soulsborne level difficulty personally (although I do feel that should in fact be an option), and I don’t want to take away the existing easy and normal levels, but I would like a mode that kept everything challenging and balanced regardless of my own level and that didn’t let me just walk through everything because I decided to do some side quests now and then instead of only the main story ark.

    @pesto in unity, if you were only against 10, it was enough, throw smoke gas, eye of the eagle, and then kill everybody an go happy! XD
