View Full Version : Rainbow six Vegas pre comments

The reason Im posting so early is because of the article where Ubisoft is interviewed on Xbox.com. I read something very comforting "We've taken great strides to ensure that equipment you unlock won't give you any statistical advantage over other players, so there's always an equal playing field. Regardless of how evolved a character is in his online career, he's only as good as the player controlling him."

Wow, http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif, Thank God, That feature in the game where its "he's only as good as the player controlling him." is the best thing I've heard in a while. The whole quote isnt very clear but I think its great, and Im very excited to see what happens next now, Sorry Ubi for ever doubting you. Just one favor to ask (directed towards devs) will the people on the same team be the same color? It would really help, but I dont want a big Dot or something like that floating above their heads or something.

With that being said, only one thing kinda scared me a bit, "Our match-making technology has been overhauled with a particular focus on accessibility. As an online gamer, what you really want is to quickly find a valid online match and jump into the action. You don't want to wait around, and you don't want to end up in a game with players that are way below or above your skill level."

I really, as a gamer, wouldnt want to have a match making system, I just want to find a room and play it with whoever is in it. Match making in Halo kinda set me up with the same people over and over, no diversity, the problem in Lockdown was that leveling left the room too diverse, RS3 was just right when it came to that situation, no super players, well there were but often the hosts would balance out the game by dividing the teams equally, and the best part was that you could join friends rooms. Match making may make it very even but please dont make it mandatory. As for Respawn, it wasnt mentioned so I dont know if thats a good thing or a bad thing, I just hope its gone, because team survival was awesome and at the same time it was realistic and it wouldnt be that long til it was over. Just please give me a straight answer, will Vegas have Respawn?

And Now, with all of that being said, I personally believe that Vegas will be a success among the Rainbow six franchise (basing off what was mostly said in the article.) Please, everyone else who wants to post please read the article before commenting. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/community/news/events/e32006/...wsixdevinterview.htm (http://www.xbox.com/en-US/community/news/events/e32006/articles/rainbowsixdevinterview.htm)
