Yes. agree with all of this.
The way they ask... Every time we report a bug, its like we are forced to prove our case with evidence as if we're on trial. Crazy.
And sometimes the video requests make no sense. Like, if there's an issue with an item and someone shares screenshots of their inventory... why do you need video of a static screen??? Or say you never got a letter in Eivor's mailbox, how am I supposed to make a video of a letter I never got?
I'm convinced now that their Bug department is just some poor guy or gal being punished in a closet, doing work that needs 50x the staff and resources. And the customer doing half the work is the only way anything has even the slightest chance of being addressed. Either that or its just some bureaucratic SOP for the support staff to tick all their checkboxes. Or maybe they are bots. Who knows?
Anyway, they don't really frequent the general discussions, so they will probably never see this.
I agree with everyone here. I had an easy time of it yesterday, but today was just frustrating. I almost rage quit. It was challenging for all the wrong reasons. There is no consistency with what happens and skill or ingenuity is not rewarded. And it did look stupid. Its more like, figure-out-how-to-cheese-the-game mode.
In the game world it feels unnatural. There are rules made by whom? A developer god, i guess. This mode is just boring frustration. Sorry.
Have you played it, or just watched the trailer? There was something about a meteor and some version of a magic Meteor-Valka. I honestly couldn't pay attention. They rationalized it somehow? It was somehow obscure and vapid and lengthy all at the same time. I had to put my head on the desk for it.
Put some hard enemy in front of me and let me do whatever i want to survive and beat him. That is challenge.
I wish for this SO MUCH. I don't know if I was spoiled by Odyssey's infinitely generating mercenary system, but this Mastery Challenge is like a slap in the face. It's like the devs who make this content do not have the skill to program in actual difficulty, so they handicap the player and exploit the existing erratic behavior instead.
lol Between this and the Mastery Challenge, I think its safe to say whoever decides what we do in this game doesn't actually play this game.
I am a pretty terrible photographer, but these are my favorites...
A quite spectacular wipe out.
I like this one because it reminds me of Ernie and Bert from Sesame Street. One so happy and the other so grumpy.

Boooooo. Same. Now I remember why I stopped playing. It wouldn't be a UbiFestival without some neglectful oversight!
I am convinced the avenge quest incidence rate is controlled on their end and is deliberate. It is too much a of a coincidence that the huge drop off in finding the avenge quests with TU1.4.1 coincided with the REPEATED avenge connect challenge week after week, when it used to be occasional. That combined with the window kills and horse trampling challenges just makes me think they are trying to consume play time.
I idled for 10min to get a quest at Scottoh Farm when 1.4.1 dropped and realized how ludicrous it was. I go afk during the addon check, afk whenever I get an auto-completing Reda quests, afk to get an avenge quest. Is this really how the devs envisioned the game being played? absently? If I'm going to be sitting there NOT playing, I might as well not fire it up at all. And when I AM playing, I'm doing something unenjoyable like running over chickens with my horse?! That plus the "*NEW* difficulty settings" which cannot even perform its most basic function... Its too much. I have rage-quit games before, but this is the first time I disgust-quit a game.
@ahmadz2001 You aren't the only one who thinks so! Lots of ppl with vitriolic hate for a pile of rocks. I don't mind them, but I'm thinking it must be much easier on keyboard/mouse. Could you use keyboard and mouse instead?
I've also seen this... Haven't tried it myself, but maybe worth a go if your only other option is quitting!
@a-m-r Yes, 120 opals/week. And no, we're not meant to get everything Reda offers. Think of the 120 as the first free hit from a drug dealer. It's to ease you into microtransactions and get you hooked enough to spend real moolah. I might be wrong, but I don't think Reda will offer a full set of anything either.
lol This is low-key extortion. 🤭 You think, "well, I certainly wont have to suffer the pain of checking for addons, if I HAVE the addons!" so you buy the dlc.
Dear Stupid game,
I can tell you I have 0 addons. I use 1 platform. And I certainly will not be buying addons while you are still so very very broken. So stop checking.

when Eivor chokes the big guy for 5 seconds then screams and turns around in 3 more seconds while all of the other enemies are just standing in the backgroung is just a bad design.
I haven't played in awhile, but reading your description gave me flashbacks. I hate that finisher SO much. Imagine being trapped in this finisher in a puddle of oil while the world burns around you.
The answer is simple: when you treat the previous game like an embarrassment and carry on as if your studio is better than the studio who made it.
Before Valhalla was released, the Montreal team was going on a sort of apology tour for Odyssey, subtly reassuring fans that they had fixed the "mistakes" from that game. At the time, I believe Odyssey was one of the highest selling games in the series (before Valhalla) and the highest rated on metacritic since Brotherhood so this was an instant red flag. They released Valhalla and, well, the rest is history...
Did this really happen? This is like what insecure kids do for attention. Loudly broadcast someone else's faults and divert attention from their own. Incredible.
@imit8me Are you playing offline? I believe the opals will look gone if you lose connection with Ubisoft for whatever reason. Could be their servers crapping out again.
Personally, I love it every time someone posts this bug, so thank you. Screens of this abomination make me laugh every time. Its practically the 1 year anniversary of this bug's inception and they do not fix it. It's practically iconic, someone please make this nightmare fuel the Valhalla box art with caption "majestic mounts".
here is the original thread:

@spindual animus are floor lamps now? Good thing you didn't buy it again. They have a bunch of animus on sale at target.
@char_uc0087 Hey, I feel for you. Sorry for your experience. This company has a truly bizarre interpretation of the word "Ultimate". I guess that is what happens when they are delusional to the point of seeing people as walking dollar signs. Who knew Complete>Ultimate?? I'm sure if they make another expansion/dlc/whatever they'll make a new edition to lock ppl out of it. AC Valhalla More Complete Edition? Actually Complete Edition? Ultimatest Edition?
@xbl_laberbacke oh sorry
they learned that
ACVUbisoft players spend million$$$ on mtx for a broken buggy game. So its obv the place to put clickbait for the susceptible with money to burn.
@chuckkatse Well, they learned that ACV players spend million$$$ on mtx for a broken buggy game. So its obv the place to put clickbait for the susceptible with money to burn.
@elnaser80 before anyone tries to capture a clip of something NOT happening, here is a thread about it:
tl;dr It is confirmed (and reproduced by support staff) that it is not possible without a gamepad. Still "under investigation" by the game team. Which I think translates to: they know and have no plans to fix it.
@jcar4327 Did you change any other setting in the difficulty menu? Since TU 1.4.1, they major broke the difficulty settings. I know that fine tuning any of the minor settings makes the game extremely easy even if you pick very hard or nightmare. It may be broken in other ways I'm not aware of. Of course, in true ubi fashion, they have not said anything nor have they fixed it since.
