The Vass Insanity DLC has released and even though this time you had a great storyline and character setup you still managed to mess it up. How? BY making it a Roguelike game mode, something that will appeal to only a sub-section of your customer base. Undoubtedly there will be many who love it but by making it a Roguelike game mode you've intentionally limited how many of your paying customers will get anything out of the DLC. You made this same mistake with FAR CRY 4 with Escape Form Durgesh Prison, a DLC with a lot of potential that you greatly reduced (the enjoyment of) by setting a time limit and goals that made it impossible but for only a few to get the most out of.
When you make decisions like this do you not run them by an outside party to see if maybe you've not thought things through? With the epic and I do mean epic failure of FAR CRY 5's DLC's one would hope that the crafting behind the planned DLC's for FAR CRY 6 would have been given much more care and attention and initial marketing and video made it look like you had and then we discover its a Roguelike game. This should have been more like a small expansion that after completing would unlock a Roguelike alternative mode to up the DLC's difficulty level.
So far most of the Marketing for the 3 DLC's has kind of grouped them together, we can only PRAY that the other 2 DCL's aren't also Roguelike game modes with the other villain's in other settings. If they are then rest assured your post release sells of the Game Pass will "fail to meet expectations".
In the future please include outside parties in feedback on major decisions like this so in future FAR CRY titles we don't continue to see repeats of easily avoidable bad decisions.
ATTN: Ubisoft Studios (over 10 were involved in FC6)::
With FC6 you've really screwed the pooch. Far Cry is supposed to be an over the top RPG and you've turned into a full blown looter. I have no doubt some may like this but we know you did this because you were trying to incr5ease incentives for players to engage in microtransactions to purchase the items they'll need to get the weapons and gear you need to deal with higher level enemies. Its disgusting! I had hoped the delay and negative feedback when you pulled this garbage with Ghost Recon Breakpoint would have taught you a lesson but I see it didn't, you merely decided to try and better hide what your doing.
This could have been a fun game but you've over complicated!
You should add tag to this section called ANGRY CUSTOMER
I've seen this before in my own business, where something is overhauled (ie like redecorating some room or place) because someone needs justification of their job so they convince the right execs that something has to be re-done when in fact there's nothing wrong with it. This new site is great if your goal is to encourage less engagement/feedback from your customers. They get frustrated trying to use it and just give up.
To whom it may concern, your new user forum absolutely sucks. There was nothing about the previous user forms that required a compete overhaul to a worse site. This make-over was done I imagine because someone somewhere needed justification for their job so they told the Ubi execs we must over haul our user forums.
Congratulations, if your goal was to get less engagement from your customers you succeeded. Your new site SUCKS
Make no mistake they did this to drive microtransaction sales, not to make the game more enjoyable. It would be one thing if they had not already half tried this already with far Cr New Dawn and go9tten a lot of pushback for doing it so one can only logically assume they pushed on with this for reasons of $$ via MTX.
