View Full Version : Looking for friends on Uplay to help with fleet missions etc

Hey everyone!

I'm looking for people to add/add me on uPlay as it seems that friends come with benefits in Black Flag (benefits in non sexual context).

I'm not really sure how it works but it says enlisting your friends helps cut fleet mission times down. My username is deboozac for any one who would like to add me!

Also if anyone can explain how having friends helps cut time down on naval fleet missions that would be cool. Do two people do a co-op kinda thing on the missions? And also does it help you progress through the game easier like more money/loot gaining? Shared treasure chests? If someone could give me a break down on this community gameplay that would be great. I'm a huge AC fan so if anyone who adds me ever needs help or anything I'd be happy to lend a hand.

Add me or leave ur user name so I can add you!

Thanks everyone! :-)

Maybe someone knows for sure, weigh in later! But in the meantime let's rely on my rusty memory.

Based on my experience with the ps3 version, my fleet could only receive help from ps3 (added on the xmb) and pc players (added on Uplay). I could only help other ps3 players but I couldn't help the very same pc players that were on my uplay list.

As for how your friends can expedite your fleet travel time, they need to access the Kenway's Fleet map (found in Jackdaw cabin and Inagua hideout) and click on the "ships in progress" tab. If they're signed into psn/xbl/uplay they should be able to see your ships and also choose one of the following options: speed up, heal, or escort. If your fleet has already has 100% success rate than they should speed up your ships.

Kenway's Fleet gives you a little extra income so you can upgrade the Jackdaw faster. It's not too overpowered, just gives the right boost if you want it.

Hope this helps a bit.
