View Full Version : Why does Reddit get listened too more than the FORUMS?

Like... why!? We forumers give great feedback and suggestions (even though some are just made out of salt), and we should probably get listened to more often because this is the GAMES. FORUMS.

The Reddit primarily has Eric, but the Community Reps here are all a part of the community team with him. I can assure you that everything we are passing along here is being brought forward to the team in the same manner that feedback on Reddit has been.

Stop talking about reddit on the official stream and start getting active here. Reddit is a 3rd party site which is treated like it's some official community source.

I'm going to second this: I hate Reddit, and I refuse to be a part of it. But here? These are THE OFFICIAL GAME FORUMS. And what gets mentioned from here!? Nothing. No mention of the community creations in the section literally labeled "Community creations". No mention that I can see of prominent forum figureheads. No mention of the issues that get repeatedly brought up on the forums. It's all Reddit, Reddit, Reddit.

But then again, these forums are also plagued with errors, spambots and weird rules that make no sense. So it's hardly surprising to see how little the team cares about it or the people on it. I know we get the occasional community rep coming in and saying "Yeah, we're totally listening, you guys, we've passed along all this stuff to the team, honest!" But when it comes time to actually deliver on the issues the forum continues to address, we get nothing.

- No serious discussion of the Faction War's irrelevance in the grand scheme of things, and the way that the Vikings win every damn season without fail.
- No acknowledgement of issues that get repeatedly raised on the forums, such as the painfully unbalanced Shaman and the one-trick-pony Centurion.
- No mention of suggestions, artwork, community creations or other such details that get posted on the regular here.

Instead it's all Reddit, all the damn time. They even tell the chat to go to Reddit to find the stream recaps! No wonder the guy who was doing them here up and left.

I do agree that the forums are ignored and neglected. Especially in the warriors den. And not to rub salt in the wound, but there was a post that was on the suggested section the other day titled "f u c k the devs" or something like that and it was up for a whole 24 hours before someone saw it and took it down. It was funny for the first few hours, but after it hit a whole day I was really disappointed.

I normally dont agree with most of the forum posters on this forum, but this one I do.

Reddit is aids. It's all memes and porn on that sight. Its basically 4chan. I NEVER use reddit unless I google something and its one of the answers. I dont even have an account there. We need to focus more on the forums... reddit is a joke. Please stop.

They dont care, reddit it the source of their money, full o meme-kids who are willing to still pay for this game.

I also agree.

Now donít get me wrong.... IF ATTENTION WAS EQUALLY SPREAD BETWEEN BOTH REDDIT AND THE FORUMS....Iíd be ok with even that.

The problem is, almost every good and relevant post that comes up, guess what you donít see? DEV PRESENCE. But then, not to discredit the very small problems, but you get things like ďmy character doesnít have any new gear but the little yellow dot is still thereĒ ďwhen will we get different armor skins?Ē And other small things that get THE ONLY attention from the devs instead of suggestions and questions about the actual gameplay and serious concerns. Again, these are indeed problems that should be addressed, Iím not saying they arenít problems, but they are small things in comparison to balancing and game play bugs. All Iím saying is itís very PICK AND CHOOSE it seems as to what they actually decide to ďpass up to the teamĒ.

Which leads to the other point that even with the very few problems that decide to actually give any sort of response to, itís always the same thing: ďwe will pass it to the teamĒ or ďwe already passed that up and are working on itĒ or the likes, but the only problems being responded to are also NEVER FIXED it seems.

Iím not one to be typically negative or a downer, but Iíve seen MULTIPLE people on these forums with very real and helpful ways to help fix big problems this game has, just for them to go unnoticed by the team despite being the top forum for a week sometimes. These forums almost always have great compromises of all players inputs too and could help mediate the console vs. PC play much more effectively.

Itís kind of BS and a huge shame.

Its actually getting stupidly ridiculous with the memes. Look with what kind of **** the devs waste their freakin time:

Itís pretty obvious why. Just read through the comments on that reddit thread. Reddit is primarily full of yes-men and meme-obsessed arch-types.

Listen to those that praise the very ground you walk on and would defend a turd if you spit on it......... or listen to those that have problems with your game and the direction itís headed?

It's obvious cuz reddit has more of the population there than here

03-11-2018, 01:14 AM
The meme culture IS going to make me quit...

Something you all should know is that the community team is everywhere the community is. While Eric is often engaging with the Reddit community, the other members of the community team can often be found engaging with players on Steam, Twitter, Facebook and here on the Ubisoft forums on a daily basis. In terms of player engagement, the Ubisoft Forums receives more engagement from members of the community team than Reddit. We look to be as inclusive as possible when it comes to feedback and suggestions that are shared with the team and the Ubisoft forums are no exception.

Its actually getting stupidly ridiculous with the memes. Look with what kind of **** the devs waste their freakin time:


From what I understand, the animator who created that stayed late on his own time to have a little fun in order to make that happen. If you don't find it entertaining, that's your opinion. A wrong one, but yours nonetheless. ;)

That all said, the team has elected to close this thread. We'll be sure to present your concerns to the team to keep in mind going forward. If you have additional questions or concerns, feel free to send me a private message. Thanks for understanding.
