View Full Version : Handicap Insta-kill?

There is a lot of 2v1, 3v1, and 4v1 in this game. What if the parry system was built to assist handicap players?

What if parrying an opponents weapon had the potential to deflect his weapon into his teammate for an insta-kill animation?

Regardless of your health, a teammates weapon can be fatal to you if you happen to be in the vicinity of the parry. This would even up the handicap battles and add some really cool animations, and also be very rewarding when one is able to pull this off.

Imagine... Your health is at 1 bar, and your surrounded by 3 enemies with full health. Currently in the game your chances are little to none. But with a parry system that has potential to use your enemies weapons against them, you stand a chance. All 3 of them rush you, and you perfectly time a couple parrys insta-killing 2 of them. It's now a 1v1.

Too easy to do and would be completely unfair when used on skilled players.

and 3v1 is fair? This system would give players incentive to let them dual. What if this type of parry required perfect timing, otherwise it would just be a normal parry. Like a split second window.

yeah 3v1 obviously isnt fair but what can Ubisoft do about that? thats player controlled if they work as a team to swarm you cus your say the best guy in the game like thats just good strategy yeah it sucks for you but oh well welcome to online play. just run away to find teammates and fight whoever straggles out its not that bad

What can Ubisoft do about it?

Add the insta-kill off parrying. Then players can go right ahead and gang up on a single player, but watch out for parrys, because your weapon will kill your teammate or his weapon will kill you. In the real world, we are not immune to friendly weapons. This game should make that clear.

3vs1 isn't fair, that's the point. but winning a 3vs1 is not impossible, but still if you have 3 of them on you, really all you want to do it tie them up for as long as you can, so you team can be capturing things else where or come to your aid.

the game doesn't need more things to help you win against multiple opponents, if you just want one on ones all the time, just play duel, and also if they made it easier to win an outnumbered fight, it would make those times when you do far less satisfying.

i think the only change i would make, is make it some team damage is a bit higher, so they can't spam you like crazy.

Ubisoft added the revenge mechanic for exactly this. When used properly you can turn a 3v1 to your advantage. It isn't exactly easy but I've done it several times
