For Honor has an average of 2-3k players on at a time on PC. With the massive imbalances brought on by new characters and the player-base that sticks to the game being extremely skilled, it will be almost impossible to bring in new players. The matchmaking system is laughable. Is Ubisoft even wasting resources on the game anymore?

I think its to late for consoles also.
Should have had dedicated servers from the beginning.
30fps, 100+ ping, light spam and disconnects is just not fun.

it was down to 1200 players in october now it is steadily above 2000 at the same time. console got more i think.

some of the game modes have too few people.

4v4 is fine.

skill level is same in any game is it not? try join a Battlefield 4 game the first time online ..its not easy :)

2K 3k players ? Lol wow your dumb. On my facebook for honor french community alone, we got 5K membres with more than 3K regularly active.

They are way more player than the ******** ur saying. Also the matchmaking isn't a joke. I have 2 friend taht started the game after me, and I can clearly see the difference between the play they face, the player I face, and the player we face when we matchmake together.

Stop keep bringing down the game with lies and created numbers. On PC reight now, the population on each game mode is at the highiest it's ever been.

This is based on what, your own created numbers? You can see the PC numbers here: http://steamcharts.com/app/304390

STOP DOING THIS ! WHAT YOU ARE WATCHING AT ARE STEAM NUMBERS ! THAT'S WHERE THE "95% LEFT" MYTH COMES FROM ! THE VERY LARGE MAJORITY OF PLAYERS ARE PLAYING TROUGH UPLAY ! NOT STEAM ! THOSE NUMBERS ARE NOT REPRESENTATIVE !

MEDIUM-HIGH ACTIVITY ON DUEL, MEDIUM-HIGH ACTIVITY ON BRAWL, CONSISTENT VERY HIGH ACTIVITY ON DOMINION AND TRIBUT ! AND MEDIUM-HIGH ACTIVITY ON EVENT PLAY LIST ! ALSO LOW ACTIVITY ON THE OTHER GAMEMODES DOESN'T MEAN THEY AREN'T PLAYER PLAYING THEM, I ONLY HAVE TO WAIT A BIT MORE (except on ranked duel cuz of my matchmaking rank level being among 5% of the community so I have to wait long as ****)

the fact is that you ar pretty stupid . the chart represent the uplay also . steam is just a side platform that start the UPLAY client .those numbers dont register only the steam player base it register the hole uplay community since the UBISOFT and STEAM decide to be partners .UBISOFT give steam acces to the login system and so they have the login numers for UPLAY also . steam is just a launch platform for uplay . and the numers there ar registered on UPLAY FOR HONOR ACTIVITY . is not 2 ****ing diffrent platforms . is one and the same , the only diffrence been the launch protocol . look on the ubisoft site and read the agreeamen betwen STEAm and UPLAY and read about THE FULL ACCES THAT STEAM HAVE ON UPLAY LAUNCHER .stop ****ing lie to ppl about "is only steam numbers " THAT NUMER IS THE WHOLE PC FOR HONOR COMMUNITY NUMBER,

Sorry for my bad eng

This is the problem with idiocracy. Lack of understanding how stats and math works.

I think statistics and how sampling and statistical correlations work should be a mandatory course on education to prevent idiots like you ever emerging. Statistically speaking steamcharts are a very good sample size to derive a high certainty conclusion on player retention.

Good grief y'all are quick to anger.

Trenk and Dacian, you two need to chill out. I don't usually comment on other users behavior unless they're attacking me, but damn, you two went from zero-to-attack mode in 2 seconds. Nothing said here calls for personal insults and rage.


steam is just a side platform that start the UPLAY client .

I spent the last 20 minutes researching this, and the single best answer i found was from a Ubisoft representative who made it clear that;


They are 2 seperate platforms. Uplay can't see if you own a game on Steam because we don't have access to that data, we only consume it. It's a little different the other way round though in that Steam doesn't consume any of our data. Uplay being central platform in this case.

While I'm not a PC gamer myself, it's my understanding that Uplay can also be downloaded and launched completely independently of Steam, so Steam in some cases might not even be installed alongside Uplay, and would have no way of counting players accessing games exclusively through Uplay.



Sorry for my bad eng

I think we'd all prefer it if you apologized for the yelling and name calling instead.

I agree, the only reason people leave is because they are bad at the game and it's too hard for them.

Face it , if you love the game enough and you are good at the game enough, you can live with bugs and issues.

Every game has bugs an issues, and people who like them - still play them.

I understand this can be a very heated topic for some players, but let's remember to be respectful of one another here on the forums. I don't expect everyone to agree, but I do expect everyone to refrain from flaiming.

In respect to the question of " Is Ubisoft even wasting resources on the game anymore?", we wouldn't be investing in the addition of dedicated servers if we didn't plan on supporting this game going into the future. The For Honor community is full of talented, passionate players and we want to ensure that their For Honor experience only gets better going forward.

Pile of ********. You gave up on the game long time ago, dedicated servers probably will never come and ubisoft are a bunch of ****ing clueless morons who have no idea how to support a game.. You failed miserably and you lost most of your player base in every game that has online mode. Only exception being Rainbow 6 , one of the most boring games.

Well they already had a beta with the dedicated servers, so I am pretty sure that they will be coming, and soon.

That's also the time when I will probably start playing again.

This is an often repeated response you guys pull out every time the community expresses their frustration at the inability of the FH team to address the many egregious issues with FH. But let's look at the past year in FH post-launch. You've maintained, from about two-months post-launch when 95% of the players left, that you will continue to "support" FH. It's been nearly a year now and;

- You have not addressed the huge balance issue between characters. There is a huge gap between OG characters and the new characters (who often do what some of the OG characters were meant to do, only it's broken on the OG characters and the DLC characters do it way better)


- Connective issues are still a huge problem (despite you guys saying you've made improvements). I see people regularly drop out mid-game, and I just had two games back-to-back crash at the end of match score screen.

- You have not fixed the defensive meta. Parrys are still too strong and all this game amounts to is turtling and throwing out "safe" UB, or baiting for a parry to follow up with a GB.

- The past year you've only focused on DLC characters, and neglected the game's many other issues. Many of these DCL characters are so over-the-top OP that they've made matters worse. But it's clear your strategy is to try and incentivise people into buying these characters since you routinely release these characters with almost no balance testing and ridiculous kits that are easily abuseable. Then refuse to nerf them until the buzz has died down and everyone has bought the new hotness.

- Faction War is still nothing but a proof of concept, and largely meaningless.

You've prioritized monetization over fixing the issues with a game you rushed to market. Many, if not all, of the issues that were brought to your attention upon release still exist today and are adversely affecting the players' experience. It's clear where your focus is in respect to FH.

Many, if not all, of the issues you have pointed to are things that we are looking to resolve and that we have regularly discussed with the community. While we have been mum on the details at times, we have always looked to, and continue to, update the community as soon as new details become available.

The focus of this next season is on bringing the original 12 heroes up to speed with the other members of the hero roster. At the start of the Season, Berserker, Conqueror, and Kensei will receive their long awaited reworks along with Highlanders buffs.

Also during Season 5, dedicated servers will be implemented. Dedicated servers have certainly been a priority for the team, but two different teams have been working during their development. One team tasked with revamping our current network architecture to support the new system and a team tasked with bringing continued improvements to the current P2P system. While there are definitely players that still encounter issues with the P2P system, it has certainly come a long way in terms of improvement from launch.

Defensive meta changes have been an ongoing effort from the team for quite some time now. Since the initial introduction of potential changes via our Public Tests, changes have progressively been made to better equip offense-oriented playstyles to deal with overly defensive opponents. We're aware that parry rewards are another component that players want changed and those are planned to release in Season 5 as well.

The real population issues lie with the players per faction. Vikings clearly outnumber my Samurai and the Knights, Ubi's pampered faction.

Either that or neither faction is really trying anymore.

Actually, Iím fairly certain the Samurai are actually the largest faction in terms of numbers. I love how every samurai seems to assume thereís a global conspiracy against them.

no there is not, just on steam ans steam numbers are unreliable because from what ive heard players that bought the game off of steam represent the lowest chunk of the entire player base, i guess you got some sort of discount from buying the game off of uplay or something? im not completely sure because i play on xbox

I'm samurai; I play every day and about 75% of the time I put my assets into a defending position because we're losing multiple territories. I have never logged into steam and I thought uplay was a porn site, lol j/k . I play on ps4. Seldom do i have trouble finding a game. I love for honor and yes, it freaking hard. I'm right at rep 100 and I get my butt kicked repeatedly... some times i think i have no business playing this game because some kid beats me so spectacularly. I suck at counter guard break and i would swear the button is broken but a minute later I push it and gb... so it's obviously just my bad timing. I look forward to any improvements to the game. Don't let haters troll you online... we know its the best fighting game out so just ignore the pathetic losers who have nothing better to do than make other ppl feel half as bad as they feel every day of their pathetic lives. Smile!

How do you know that majority of the players are playing through Uplay and not steam for For Honor?
