Getting double/triple teamed and your all alone, just got your revenge mode? Well guess what unless these are fresh players it's not going to do you any good.

Revenge mode offers you a CHANCE at survival in these multi opponent situations, it's not a guarantee escape option. Opponent A is spamming you with shield charge and opponent B is spamming guard break. The only thing Revenge will do is not back the guard breaker and offer a free hit on him before they just continue with the process until you are dead.

Revenge Mode is useful sure, against incompetent players who have no clue how to combat it! In the higher levels everyone has dealt with their hundreds of Revenge moders and they know how to still kick the hell out of you. Ubisoft needs to either get rid of Revenge mode all together or do SOMETHING to better your chances in a spam scenario of bashing and guard breaking like improving the immunities that come with activating it. You'll parry an attacker and get that free overhead heavy on them sure, but you won't parry that unblockable shield bash that will lead to you cornered demise.

So when you play against higher leveled players you might want to rethink your strategy because most likely Revenge will NOT save you. So until Ubisoft does something or nothing about it, all you Revenge build players are kinda screwed

You don't understand the intentions behind revenge in 1vX scenarios then.

it's not supposed to be insta-win because then why would you ever bother 1vXing someone?
It's supposed to give a chance, not a get out of jail free card. A supplement to your skill, per say. It's nowhere near useless

The game director even says this, more or less.
