Ubi is currently giving away free stuff every day, stil a couple of days left, yesterday they gave the Bayek outfit as well as settlement cosmetic pack So even without having watched the twitch stream everyone could now get it.
But sorry to hear that you still haven't received it
Not quite as far with the game as you are (just short of 70%) but same experience, playing on PC - game is beutifully optimized (avg. of 61fps, which is my cap due to 60fps monitor with everything on ultra), and not a single "serious" or game breaking/halting bug so far. Most complaints, correct me if I'm wrong, that I have read on this forums about bugs seem to come from PS4 - but I might be wrong with that impression.
Only major concern I have about the horses in ACV compared to the last two titles, is the limitations of jumping down of a small cliff. Even if it just a meter, the horse makes a full stop and refuses to jump down (sometimes it works).
Other than that I hink horses are quite nice.
Note: The horse can sprint for several minutes, in contrast to OP "run out of stamina in seconds" comment which simply is not true.
How do you mean ?
My reference to them not being the big bad wolf was in this context a reference to the posters implications that Ubi censored complaints in the forums by deleting complaint posts. From looking how many complaint posts we have, we can see that this is not the case
(Especially in the concrete case from brightlightw, who just couldn't find the thread I linked to earlier - which is NOT the same as "it was deleted by Ubisoft")
I do agree, I have watched all Ubisoft forward events but still haven't gotten the Bayek Outfit (while I have the Axe).
But it wouldn't be the first time that AC games have rewards that (after the initial activity, here UbiForward) can't be obtained. Lets wait and see.
Well, I don't know how far you are in the story, but I have found several items, such as chests and KEYS, that were not lootable. This was not due to a bug, but because they simply were tied to a quest - so the key could be looted after I progressed further in the story. If your case really is a bug... then this sucks obviously.
Well your save games might just as well, which I think is more likely, have been accidentally overriden when you swapped save folders around (as described by you here)... At least I haven't heard of save game loss from anyone who didn't touch the game files.
Further, no they are not treating us like children... in the old forum there was a lot of discussion because people didn't felt comfortable with (primarily) blood, beheadings x-ray assassinations and gore in general. Ubisoft reacted to those complaints and released the game with the options to disable these things. While I personally haven't disabled them, it doesn't hurt my gaming experience that other people CAN disable them. So no this has nothing to do with Ubisoft patronising us or treating us like children. The same me goes for nudity, you get the amount that is in the game, but if you find that this is too much you can disable it. (Sorry you actually feel the need to count breasts)
And lastly - No Ubisoft is not the big bad wolf trying to burry or censor your complaints... You find your complain post here.
Well that has been the same for previous games? Since Origins you where not able to get everything from day 1 unless you had twitch so nothing new
The Bayek outfit also don't required twitch, you just follow along on Ubisofts on webpage an simply log in with your Uplay account, so no twitch needed this time around (also its free).
But, on the bright side, it MIGHT be that these items will be available at a later time for Uplay points.
No don't need anymore details - just wanted to get a glimpse of how bad it can be.
Conclusion: very bad...
This sounds quite extreme and I hope that your situation is an extreme case. I can definitely better understand now why you can't provide videos to all of these and I feel quite lucky that I don't have to deal with these issues (lucky draw?).
Fingers crossed that, especially, bugs that completely halt progression are fixed asap.
Can you give like a hand full of bugs you often encounter? I am really surprised about how people describe the game, in terms of bug density, compared to my own (nearly) complete bug free experience.
No of course you are not the game tester. But helping Ubi with at least some information about what bugs you encounter might help them identify and resolve the problems Maybe my point is just that so many people are just venting/ranting without being constructive, and this "simply complaining" is neither helping Ubisoft identify/resolve bugs and therefore doesn't help the players to have a better experience.
So criticism and feedback is always good - I would just like to see more of it being constructive instead of just rants. But that's just my opinion...
While I currently, apart from 1-2 Opals that couldn't be looted and 1 crash, haven't noticed a single bug in ~70h playtime, I think this is the way to handle this.
If you find a bug, document it if possible - e.g. by providing video footage. If you can recreate the bug, and if not it seems to be a one time occurrence, send Ubisoft support a short video clip of it. This takes like 2minutes and actually gives them some undeniable footage which is so much more than just a verbal complaint wrapped in a rant without any documentation whatsoever.
And as valtyrnine states, just because it isn't on the list, it doesn't mean that it is not being fixed.
I think you mean the pledges. You can unlock pledges at the wartable with Randvi. Before you can unlock a new pledge (aka. story ark) you have to complete your current pledge - so keep playing the current one and the last quest in it will send you back to Randvi where you can pick your next territory.
Well in all fairness - you shouldn't include every single post where someone says "While riding along the east road in east anglia I get a crash", "When performing a barrel roll with my Ravin it crashes" or "Every time I press Alt + F4 the game suddenly stoppes" (you get it) without investigating and trying to confirm or at least find out what the cause is.
Is it ACV related or does the user in this particular instance have background software running that just kills the hardware and results in a system crash? Is it actually a real crash or just some freak coincidence not related to ACV?
So I would say, without having read all crash reports on this forum, reddit, youtube etc. that for it to be acknowledged as a known issue takes more than one user stating that something happened (which I also think it should).
I think a lot of you have to come down a bit... no reason in treating this like it is the biggest issue in 2020, in gaming history even in AC history.... it is a type of weapon you are missing, no reason to get angry, [censored], super annoyed or deeply disappointed in Ubisoft.
Also, we can't demand justification for every choice in the game. This is a choice they made, just like they choose to give the settlement 6 levels instead of any other number, or they chose to have X order of the ancient members instead of Y.
Unpopular opinion, but get over it...
Luckily there is no down vote button on this forum : D
I think the "problem" with this in ACV is simply the fact that you can do so many things in so many orders. If you just go for the story, you might not become too over leveled at all, but the fact that different people can do a different amount (and different) side activities, makes it really impossible to have a system that won't make some people over level.
As far as I see it, there are only two solutions to this:
- Make enemies scale to your current power level at all times
- Give players the option to remove skill points to make sure that you are not OP the entire game (which can be game breaking)
Ubisoft here settled for Option 2 which, while not my preferred of the two, totally does the job. I reset when I enter a new area, and don't use any skill points I earn until I enter the next (higher PL) area. So it's really just 1 respec every few hours, depending on area size.
