Hey guys just reposting something from For Honors reddit.

Basically community is coming together and not playing for 24hrs. The thread has 9000 upvotes and was just posted today. Here is the link with the info if you would like to participate.

When you read the thread you will see this is about love for the game. This cluld still be a great game, all the qualities are there.

Let's come together for this and let them know.

There are two possible effects:

One day less FH (should be painless)

And the possibility that they will adress this with the manpower the issue needs.

I'm in, and whether you are a troll, hater or a big fan you should too. No need to be enemies here, let's try to do something good toghether!

Except there are no servers considering its all P2P and if half of the currently small player base disappears, there goes your matchmaking times and possibility of finding a good host.

gg... good spirit..

It's not about moaning about balance, or thing kill me it's unacceptable.

it's about the lack of communication of ubi. they made a game broken, they sell it, and we are in right to ask when and how he gonna be fixed, but all we have as response is the community manager who said thing like : i gonna tell to the dev that you have problem" or "we are on it"

yeah, great, but what are you on it. what patch gonna come, when, what are your difficulties, why do you have sell an alpha game like it was a RC etc. and until today, all those question are left without response. so by boycotting the game we want to make them react.

after that, if all you see is "the B-itching boy gonna left for 24h it's gonna be fun" well, good game for you and GG for supporting abusive commercial technique and accepting everything without saying anything. But that make you a part of the problem, if you are okay with all that, Why ubi will even try to change.

I didn't say I was leaving, just pointing out your complete lack of knowledge on how the game works. I've also seen you around the forums being ignorant quite often, and I guess reading comprehension isn't your strong suit either. Raging seems more appropriate for you.

Moaners dont play the game, just complain on the forums, they are of no use to anyone.

The real story is told by the thousands of silent players you meet in game who just play and dont complain, which is that the game is fine when you git gut.

This whole "do what i say or i leave" sense of entitlement delusion, is the same as telling a big youtuber "do this or ill unsubscribe", its actually beneficial for everyone if you unsubscribe, minus one problem that is not there anymore.

Once you are gone (you as in you lot) , the rest of the community can start concentrating on positivity, gameplay, and the future of the game

If you don't believe me, fine. I'm just one person. If you don't believe the player loss, fine.

If you don't believe the forum, who could blame you, most of the posts are kind of flamey.

If you don't believe the articles written by serious media, fine, fake news.

If you don't believe the pro gamers that play unofficial tournaments, no problem they need to git gut, even though they probably are better or at the same level as you (I don't know what level you are on)

But all.of these? Take a scientist approach, prove me wrong instead. Present your case afterwards. The git gut argument have no base in reality. The rest listed here, does.

All of the above has already been debunked dozens of times, please feel free to go over my messages in my profile, there's enough material there to write a book.

Long story short:

1. Player loss - predicted for a niche, hardcore game that is too hard for casual gamers (like star craft , or street fighter, games that require you to be a Korean cyborg with 400apm to be goof at(

2. Forums - self explanatory

3. I dont follow mainstream media, since its a dieing, redundant form of media that is on its way out like betamax, vhs, and the dvd (Papa Trump and PooPiePie has started the ball rolling, singlehandedly red-pilling an entire generation of people to the BS that is media right now)

4. Tournaments - you mean the PK ban? Lazy and uneducated attitude from inexperienced host (alot of tournament games allow character banning per match chosen by each team, LoL has inbuilt feature, Hearthstone lets players chose per 5 match set etc. They should have let the players decide if they want to ban PK each round, or warlord, or warden, or w/e)

Furthermore, there has been a wave of refund frauds lately, on the forums, making the connectivity claims even more skeptical.

Thus this is a moan thread, which basically says "I cant git gud, ubi wont refund me, so i will throw a tantrum because others dont do what i want".

Very good, go do it, and please - make sure to not come back, the game will do just fine

So, you are implying that 90% of the player base has stopped buying games from Ubisoft? Because that's what boycotting means. By not playing the game has nothing to do with boycotting.

I'm playing on PC. I also have a picture of Neil deGrasse Tyosn right besides my bed, who is my only lord and saviour, therefore I laugh at your analogies.

P.S. talking about flat-earthers, here's a 24 page thread asking for people to submit evidence of any connectivity issues post patch 1.04 yet receiving none.

http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1616130-For-Honor-most-played-fighting-game-of-all-times-according-to-SteamCharts

To quote Carl Sagan, extraordinary claims (which are plenty on these forums), require extraordinary evidence (of which there is few to none since patch 1.04) + the refund frauds claiming connectivity that are getting exposed daily now, by checking people play stats or actually seeing them playing online, lol

We actually invited one of these guys to friend list and then conned him into coming to play a game with us, weirdly with no connection errors for which he requested refund lololo

You mean that game that is being played almost exclusively in Korea by maybe 20,000 players?

Yes, that is a definition of a niche game, pop a xanax and calm down.

Don't get me wrong, sc series is the best RTS to ever exist, but you know why it is not the talk of the town nor why milions of people are not playing it ? Because it is away above the competency levels of an avarage gamer, like For Honor.

You know that guy TotalBiscuit who pretty much owns SC2 esports scene right now? He himself stated many times, that in order.to attract casual gamers to games like star craft, they need a new type of rts that is a bit slower, and requires less input to level the field.

A staple of a SC2 pro right now is the ability to hit 350 actions per minute mark, or 6 correct keys per second.

Think about it, you cant do that. You will never be able to do that.

Thats why SC2 esports is so interesting to watch, but not that many people actually play SC2

That's cool dudes. I design and produce equipment for space, military and aviation so I hold those guys in high regard too.

I guess what it comes down to is what you define as extraordinary evidence, which I consider my arguments to form. I believe that my own experience is not evidence, but is echoed in the statements provided by a massive amount of players. Video evidence, picture evidence and evidence from statistics are backing up my claim.

When I then also consider the facts provided by you, the git gut argument it does not hold any evidence and you have yet to prove it.

If your hero is Sagan and Tyson you should provide it, they would most likely agree.

The burden of providing evidence falls on the shoulders of the ones making the claims.

For me game works fine, I play it every day for hours against thousands of different players for whom the game also seems to work just fine.

Meanwhile, there is endless moaning and outright refund frauding constantly happening on these forums, thus significantly devaluing the voice of this community as a whole, to the point where every single claim needs to be questioned.

I have provided the evidence on my statements, with sources. You are claiming that it's because git gut. I need evidence for your claim, if you want me or any others to view it as true. And remember, the more sources that back your claim the better.

"People need to git gut" is a claim.

"Debunked a thousand times" is a claim.

Steam reviews is a source. You can argue the validity of this source, but taking them all into consideration?

Still, this is the scientific way, and the best way of judging a claim to be true :)

I'm still waiting. Until then your argument remains invalid.

This topic is so side-tracked so I will bring it a bit back on track.
I don't think not playing the game is going to make any difference except me needing to wait a bit longer for a match maybe.
You need to realise that probably only 20% max of the players go to the forums the rest ain't got no time fo that.
Yes they need to step up and try to fix some problems but I don't know if you are all aware of the fact that the outage did not just effect For Honor.
It effected R6 and GR Wildlands and pretty much all ubi games.
And to be fair after the last update it has been really stable for me. when people left it mostly continued just the rare dc that's it. About 1 in every 6/7 games. I can live with that especially if you see how bad it was in the start.

In fact, it would be perfect if you lot would also boycotted the forums, and reddit, then went to the beach, held hands, moaned some more for old times sake, and jumped in the ocean

Here's the thing, though: Your claims that you've had no problems and have played with thousands of others that experience no problems is purely anecdotal. Just like all the people on these forums sharing their experiences of constant lag and disconnections. We're all happy that you get to enjoy this game with minimal problems, but a lot of us are having a very different and very unpleasant experience. Your reaction to it is cold and unsympathetic.
We love this game almost as much/as much/more than you and we want it to do well. We want this game to be the best game it can be. We're all rooting for it. So, those of us who are having these issues (and some who aren't but understand our issues and don't dismiss those with a different experience as "moaners") will come together and not play on this date. If the amount of people not playing is inconsequential, then so be it. But if it's big enough for Ubisoft to take notice maybe it will be more motivation for them to get this game to it's optimal state. That would be good for us and you.

Here's the thing, though: Your claims that you've had no problems and have played with thousands of others that experience no problems is purely anecdotal. Just like all the people on these forums sharing their experiences of constant lag and disconnections. We're all happy that you get to enjoy this game with minimal problems, but a lot of us are having a very different and very unpleasant experience. Your reaction to it is cold and unsympathetic.
We love this game almost as much/as much/more than you and we want it to do well. We want this game to be the best game it can be. We're all rooting for it. So, those of us who are having these issues (and some who aren't but understand our issues and don't dismiss those with a different experience as "moaners") will come together and not play on this date. If the amount of people not playing is inconsequential, then so be it. But if it's big enough for Ubisoft to take notice maybe it will be more motivation for them to get this game to it's optimal state. That would be good for us and you.

Moaners themselves say that developers during streams themselves said that they are aware of connectivity and balancing issues, so whats the point of trying to draw attention to what the developers know already from data and super testers? No point , is thr answer, because it just becomes moaning by definition, and is neither constructive nor of any value. Why cant they just play the game as is and wait for patches and fixes?

I think moaning would be more like complaining on forums. Not playing is moaning like "off" is a television channel. But it seems like you're taking this personally. Like people are attacking you and your game--I don't understand why anyone would get this defensive over it.
Also, just because you and many others aren't experiencing these problems doesn't mean that others are lying. That's a very self-centric and absolutist mindset. If some of us choose not to play on the 3rd there's a good chance that it will make zero difference. My question is, so what? Like, who is harmed by this? No one right? So why would it upset you so much? I mean, if it's out of some need to prove that you're a bigger, more die-hard fan than us, then cool. Respect. I don't mind if you have that title.
Now can the rest of us go back to trying to help improve this game in anyway we can (or at least feel like we're helping)? Again, who is hurt by this?

You didn't answer my question, if developers already know about the problems, whats the point if hammering them home in 50 different threads?

This is the definition of moaning:

complain or grumble, typically about something trivial.

And this is exactly what moaners on thks forum are doing, because their threads are negative, inflammatory, attacks developers, and is just down right childish and pointless, and a lot of the time simply fraudulent lies

If you have real problems with this game, you should be the one upset at these people, because they are the ones crying wolf, and devaluing your own position, and opinion as a community as a whole.

If there weren't 50 daily threads about the exact same damn thing, maybe everyone, including the developers, would be able to take the real problems more seriously?

Moaning is one of the main reasons of declining player base. If you are a new player who downloaded the game, at some point you will want to check our the forums and get involved with community activities. If the forum is a huge burning dumpster fire full of moaners complaining and lying, you will get a wrong impression because they will paint you a worse image than it is. Making you think that hey maybe this game has no future, and i shouldnt play it.

Instead of tantrum, substitute silence. Sounds great!

You see, I hate pointless forum clutter. In every video game forum I visit, too many people start threads that are just rants. Just people going on and on about what they hate and offering no solutions to the problems. This has always been a major point of frustration for me. I often catch myself thinking, "Man, I wish these people would express their distaste by simply not playing the game." That's what is happening here, so of course it has my support. People deciding, "Hey, instead of being a cry-baby over it, I'm just not going to play!" Anti-crybaby policies will get my support each time. Even if I don't agree with the issue I'll support it simply because it's so much easier to ignore than a bunch of redundant forum clutter.
It's certainly much better than your solution of flaming people which only adds to the problem.

No one is linking to some bs ineffective petition, staging a boycott, typing up an open letter. I want this to become a trend.

Final Draft (Hopefully): This is a community initiative. The plan is to stop playing on the specified day (April 3rd) and to continue not to play;


however if you wish to play after the 3rd that is fine but I believe that if the blackout can last at least one day it will be enough. The goal is to receive a response from Ubisoft, something that tells us to maintain our faith in the game. Below is a list of reasonable requests and suggestions made by the community that I have noticed. I hope together we can make a difference in the game we love.

This is a different matter. Most of the time I agree which players are just crying and all. But, Ubisoft is really lacking in communication, and even me who defend the game here or on Steam started to feel unsecure about its future. I'm not participating on this. I like to play the game, but I'm doing it less just because sometimes isn't fun work so hard for, for example, deal with a super turtle player. I'm a duelist, so the connection isn't a problem to me, but I want to know about balance, about what they are doing to change the game's flow, what is needed.

I don't care about buffs or nerfs, but the game's flow at high level is becoming boring. Guard Break and Parry need some change. Block needs a few adjusts. And I'm tired of face new players and risk make them quit because the matchmaking do not explain to me what is really happening on queue. All this unsatisfying feelings could be worked if Ubisoft talk to us what they are really doing or planning.

All this without say about the wasted feature that is the Faction War.

I've never called for a nerf, and it's easier for me to assume any balance issues I come across are just me not knowing how to counter a specific hero and I just need more practice, BUT...
I think a cause of people crying for nerfs and balances is due to framerate. Timing reactions is much easier at 60fps so I'd love to know how many people calling for nerfs and balances are console players vs pc players. Of course, if true, none of this can be dealt with in any meaningful way until connectivity issues are dealt with.

Anyway, my apologies for taking this off topic.

Also Ubisoft will adress these issues which does not exist, to the 11k moaners.

Ubisoft actually seems to be taking these things serious, maybe they love moaners and losers or something.

Lastly I'll say something real nasty about moaners.

How it works now

You have no clue what you're talking about. The only way what you're saying would happen is if they have client side hit detection. If they have server side hit detection, everything runs perfectly on dedicated servers, except that the person with a bad connection would suffer. As of right now, one person has a bad connection and everyone suffers but him. In fact, the laggier player has a massive advantage right now.

With dedicated servers and server side hit detection, the person with a bad connection suffers, while the other players are completely unaffected. Everyone will be at the mercy of their own connection.

P2P is trash, and the really funny thing is how everyone is under some weird misconception that FH doesn't have servers. Of course they have servers, they just don't handle the bulk of the networking since all they do is connect players for a game. Make no mistake, P2P is the absolute worst.

If you're advocating for P2P you either use a lag switch and abuse the situation, or you just have no idea what you're talking about.

False? Any game I've played with dedicated servers, you get a player with a poor connection and that lag is distributed to the rest of those involved.

More importantly, are you a professional coder/networking admin? Cause if so I'd like you to establish a perfect means of connecting multiple platforms over thousands of miles while maintaining immaculate connectivity and response times for all players.

I'll admit I don't know the specifics, though I've heard from people who do and there are benefits and draw backs to each, and if the PROFESSIONALS that made this game feel it was more prudent to use the system they did, that's fine by me.

Do you have the ability right now to do everything you just mentioned?
So I'm going to try this: you have a difference between what is viable and what is realistically probable.
Case and point to access and view IP information requires you to have the specified hardware/software. Both of which the average players don't have. Secondly I'm pretty sure the devas knew that and took steps to curtail this.

You're completely wrong and your claim is absolute nonsense. The only time that lag gets "distributed" is if it's p2p and the laggy player is the host. It is out right impossible for lag to get "distributed" under any other circumstance. It will seem like the lag is distributed when you fight them if it's client side hit detection on the dedicated server, but that's why you have to have server side hit detection.

It'll be interesting to see if they actually answer any issues this warrior's den. Usually they just dance around them or outright insult the communty.


I have years worth of mmo expeience that says otherwise. Any chance you have a networking degree to back up your claims? Otherwise it's just an opinion.

You're confusing overloaded servers with actual lag. And yes, there was a unit on networking in my Comp Sci Degree.

There was a long debate on reddit about p2p vs dedicated servers by people who claim to work in the industry (I don't know enough to have an opinion). It seems they settled on p2p better for duel/brawl and dedicated better for 4man. /shrug

Actually I dont care if they stay on p2p or make dedicative servers. The problem is real. In all team-based multiplayer games Ive played there were possibly 1 disconnected person in every 10-15 matches (who usually reconnected in 2-5 min and most of the time reason is that player's fault) and mostly matches in that titles last much more, than 10-15 min in for honor and usually there are more people, than 8.
In For Honor I can barely recall some 4v4 matches, when noone had "left the game" and I played every day for more than a month already. Damn, I even took part in matches when everyone exept me got kicked and I had to finish it alone with bots!
I really cant understand people, who are ok with that. If you like playing with bots - there are many single player titles. But multiplayer game, that might make me loose just because 3 of my teammates just dissaper in mid-strike every 4th match has issues.
I adore the ame, but netcode has to be fixed asap (actually it should be fixed on release).
I saw Ubi responce, but I didnt see any promise - they are fixing main flaw of the game, so Im still in.

That is the funniest part indeed.
No need to prove anything.
Just to let you talk for people to see how much of a joke you are.
This reference to MMO is just enough to show that you just don't know what you're talking about ...

This whole idea is bum in my opnion and won't achieve anything. As much as I have talked negatively about this game and how Ubi handled it, I do think they are doing the best they can with what they have and the given situation.

The fact that you baited me into clicking a Kotaku link makes me and my computer feel violated. Keep that """journalism""" to yourself next time.

No, I'll do whatever I want.

I'll read Kotaku, but I wasn't trying to endorse them or anything. I was just making a point that these people want to raise awareness to an issue. I'd say an article on a gaming website viewed by millions does just that.

I don't care what your gaming experience is -- what you're claiming simply isn't possible. Especially since you're using mmo experience as a reference... so you're saying that servers with thousands, hundreds of thousands, or possibly millions of players, are effected by a single laggy connection??? Lol!!!!

I'm a network engineer for the largest ISP in my area, and have been for about 4 years now.

So question: how would you as networking experts resolve the main problem with dedicated servers. In that the routing by an ISP doesn't always take the shortest route between access points, resulting in increased lag for players that are forced to take longer routes to get to the same connection.
This is the reason they chose not to use servers, it's easier and faster for two machines to communicate than it is to get two machines to connect to a third party and then sync up data.
Mathematically this argument seems moot, but as I said I just want to see the evidence.
And more importantly I'd like results.

Every games press in Poland wrote about your protest. I saw that in other countries is similar. This can be a true blackout. Am in.

I'm not sure what this whole 'protest' is about. Match stability is better than it has been since launch, steel economy just got a major bump, the devs are now publishing a weekly blog on whats getting worked on which includes things like class balance and desynching on certain maps.

This might have been a good idea a week ago but now it just seems like you're looking for something to be outraged about. I'll be playing the game and after these recent changes I'm pretty sure most of you will be right along side of me on the 3rd of April.

I'll be playing if I feel like playing. Social media is not a determining factor in how I live my life. If you are going to boycott, have fun. I prefer PvE anyway.

Go ahead. I'll win round 4 for the Samurai myself. We don't need other people. We get XP, steel, and assets against bots. I get 400 XP, 1000 assets most games. Wouldn't mind if you never came back either.

Looks like the blackout worked before it even started or maybe just a coincidence timing by the devs.

Definitely in. Game companies can't just simply treat their player bases like crap and get away with it. The community asked for a response from ubisoft and for a long time received nothing!.

Funny that now all of a sudden there are all these little things coming out from Ubisoft after the blackout was announced? Pfffft

Until they deliver, proceed with the blackout. They are promising things which didn't happen since alpha.
We have tried the forums, we have tried talking support, made YouTube videos stating how awful the connection is, everything has failed. Game is still unstable. We've shown we are not satisfied, they did nothing. They took us for fools. Blamed our ISP, our router configurations, our internet configurations, etc.
April 3rd is our one true opportunity to show them how bad the situation is.

I love the game. But now it is unplayable. I would like to play uninterrupted like I do with every other game I've got.

Yeah will not play on april 3 (its nice that they increased steel income). BUT
- 35% of my 4on4 end with crashes
- Gear still not fixed
- Still no Balance patches (they can anounce em as much as they want).
- Incoming Balance patches still ignore the fact that defense is so strong (there is a reason why "high" level player tend to play bash classes (Warden/Shugoki/Conq/Warlord).
- No guard switch patches again
- Still tons of gamebreaking bugs like unparryable unlock ****
The Game has great potential but if you compare its price model with MOBA Titels you should patch stuff in the same frequence....

I'm on board with this April 3rd thing. Unfortunately, I think there are too many things to balance, too many mechanics that co-exist for any kind of "fix." Sad.

Sad, the fact I can right now, buy Steel and outfit my character with game changing gear to the highest levels, and THAT is one of the smaller complaints the community has. Maybe not small but it has been over shadowed by so many other things at this point. This isnt even my current frustration with the game. that is a sentiment from the Closed beta.

It seems even the original idea of the blackout has been satisfied, and maybe some are right, this is not the correct response or way to communicate. However, I can't help but be skeptical with regards to future patches.

Um the blackout has been cancelled since the original complaints were addressed?


The guy who started the blackout even made a Reddit thread saying that he was cancelling it.

So long as you don't spam guard switch before the point, guardswitch is even across the board https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSWm4YIPd1U watch the video through and you get raider switching guard against valkyrie and nobushi against peacekeeper.
