Hi and welcome!

Few days ago i bought the game and i'm really enjoying with playing it. After i played few hours in single player mode i switched to multiplayer and it's what i call love at first sight. I was totally bored with multiplayers and some people were wondering with that i'm buying games to play single player mode and not even touching multiplayer. I bought brotherhood not only because i love assassin's creed serie but also because i was intrigued with idea of multiplayer in this kind of game.

This is very fresh and giving a lot of fun way to play online game. Few nice modes, classes, various characters, customization.. and more. Maps are ok.

Unfortunately game brings to us also a lot of bugs. I will try to describe them as best as possible.

At first should be two shortcuts to the game: single player and multiplayer shortcut. I do not like to run single player only to switch to multiplayer option.

There is a sound issue, sometimes happens during switching between single player and multiplayer, eg. when i'm switching from single player to multiplayer i have no sound in game, i have to switch back to single player and again to multiplayer to bring sound back. Same happens other way, on switching from multi to single.

The most annoying in multiplayer games thing is "matchmaking"!!!!!!!!!!!! I like servers, i like to choose server with map i like in matchmode i like. I do not like entering match as it is in this moment. I hate "sessions", i like servers! Sometimes entering session takes more time than match duration. I hope you will replace these stupid sessions with servers and we will be able to set map, matchmode, number of players, timelimit, fraglimit, pointlimit... and more. 10 minites matches imo are too short, i would like to play one match 15, 20 minutes, probably there is some hardcore gamers who would want to play more.

Steering... Assassin's creed always had issues with steering. As in single player these issues wasn't such a big problem they are big problem in multiplayer, sometimes improperly marked enemy or improper move decide about win or loose. As i spotted ubisoft provided something looking like a "crosshair" but this "crosshair" not always work as it should and marks other character than i had directly in center of this "crosshair".

Another issue about marking happening to me very often is when i mark one person in front of me and i press kill button my character is killing someone e.g. behind me.

Lack of chat i will leave without comment or i will say only one about it: pls, add chat in multiplayer game, during match and afer match.

In mode "Zabˇjstwo" (my personal favorite, bringing to me most adrenaline :-] ) when i'm marked by someone else and i do not know about it and i mark exactly that person i should be able to kill it, but i'm unable to kill and i do not know that this person already got me marked. This makes me defenseless. This should be fixed by allowing to both to kill enemy or by little skirmish between them.

And finally when i want to quit game it doesn't mean i want to switch it to single player, it mean i want to quit to windows desktop. For my luck alt+f4 works proper and i quit the game directly.



If i will remember to myself more or find some new issues and bugs i will post them in here.



and now i'm going back to the game :-)


P.S.
Sorry for my poor english, greetings from P(r)oland! :-)

Can I please ask you post in the pinned thread?

That is the place to put all feed back http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif - other wise it can be missed.


We are aware of a few problems with matchmaking, but these are being looked into - and there are a few things you can try in the mean time to improve your game:

In feedback topic i posted link to this thread, is this enough?

About your second link... No, i do not have connection issues, just matchmaking sometimes takes much time, bases of problem lies somewhere else. I really love servers, with servers you easily can find out what generates problem, with matchmaking... matchmaking for me is synonim of "prey for play".

A few??? It takes hours to get into a game! Its like ubisoft added the servers as an afterthought to be honest.

No Offence but it needs to be fixed.

The OP raises MANY good points. Please take his/her feedback into consideration seriously, Ubisoft.

There is one point I would just like to reiterate, and I apologise in advance for sounding crude, but why isn't there a f#$king chat feature in the PC multiplayer??? Oh, I don't know, communicating with other players is probably the SECOND MOST IMPORTANT FEATURE IN A MULTIPLAYER GAME ...

I know you've got voice chat, which is all well and good, but that is in no way an end-all-be-all answer because of 3 simple reasons:

1) You want to keep quiet and not disturb other people in the room.
2) You don't want to listen to some 12 year old whinge/complain/brag/troll.
3) Not everyone has a mic.

What is with game developers and utterly lacking common sense these days? First it was Blizzard's Starcraft 2 with no chat channels (and they copped a sh!tstorm for that) and now it's Ubisoft. Come on guys, you're better than this. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that players might want to have some BASIC means of interaction/socialisation aside from playing the game. I'm no programmer so I could be talking out of my ***, but I'd imagine implementing a chat feature to be relatively simple ...

Sorry if I sounded like I was ranting but I just had to get that off my chest. The whole Assassin's Creed franchise is absolutely awesome and I love it to bits but little flaws can really mess up the player experience and tarnish the game's reputation http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Chat programs can be made using visual basic to create an executable that simply reads/writes from a .doc. Chat programs are not difficult

Takes ages to get in a game (even though I'm 20mb speed) and the game is sluggish for 3 seconds upon getting into the map before I'm murdered immediately before even having a chance to actually play or find a target.

It's pointless to me. I'd rather have opted to have the Copernicus Conspiracy as an additional feature rather than multiplayer.

It is, it's in the PC connection issues thread (if I recall correctly). But they've been looking into that for all platforms for weeks now ... Since the Da Vinci Disappearance, all platforms are experiencing a lot of latency issues/glitches.

Please post your issues in Mr_Shade's linked Topic. Also please make sure if you are having issues that you contact Ubisoft Support so they have more details.
