I ain't tried to take it, but the reason some people probably cannot do it is due to region perhaps? Some surveys are weird like that and are only open to certain regions.

yea i just took it now, and i had to say i lived in some other region. =D.

Yeah, nothing like limiting the feedback from your target demographic by region locking a survey in which you get an idea of what your customers may think are good ideas for future iterations of your product. Isn't business wonderful!

I love how they ask about the look of the characters on a scale from 1-10 and it's Ezio in his concept/e3 cinematic trailer outfit we never got http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Just becuase:

1) An upgrade to the assassin's blade that increases the fluidity and speed of free-running

- WTF is this, No.

2) An enhanced Eagle Vision: see the patrol paths of guards, spot clues to complex navigation puzzles, detect when characters are lying during interrogations, etc.

- All this sounds awesome, but eagle vision was near useless in Brotherhood thanks to the marking above targets heads. Isnt the point of EV so that you can find them, why GIVE away the position without needing it then? Over would like it.

3) An intuitive crafting tool that lets you create custom bombs from dozens of ingredients found throughout the game world

- not too interested honestly.

4) Tactical use of a variety of bombs suited to unique contexts and situations (smoke, poison, o

- interesting, but I dont see the point of it. Smokebombs are all we need, Flashbombs are only really good in an MP situation.

5) An additional objective where you and your Assassins guild fight against the Templars to gain control of a city, district by district

- Sounds interesting

6) Playing as a new Assassin, in a different historical time period

- Would Really like to go somewhere else.

7) A continuation of Ezio's story as the leader of the Assassins, set outside of Italy

- I dont think there is much else I wanna do as Ezio. AC2 Ezio was rather disapointing, and brotherhood Ezio was great, but I cant see me doing much else as Ezio.

8) Deeper connectivity between all the Assassin's Creed projects (eg. an action you make on the Facebook game will impact your game experience on the console; events that you read about in the comics will be related to the storyline of the videogames, etc.)

- WOuld be Nice to see small things like Legacy and Bloodlines did in the previous games, noty a big deal though.

9) Online Cooperative Mode

sounds cool, but Not needed

10) Offline Cooperative Mode

See 9, only i would hope they would have it for both if it was included

11) The availability of new maps for the Multiplayer

- Yes, would love more MP maps, with distict feels that can effect gameplay
.
12) A choice of additional Multiplayer characters with new skill-sets

Not sure if it asks about MP characters with unique abilities, if thats the case than no. otherwise, More characters would be awesome.

13) Playing new Multiplayer modes

- I was disapointed in the amount of modes at release in brotherhood.

14) A deeper team-based Multiplayer experience (guilds / squads that have common objectives, new tools for clan management, etc.)

- Exactly what I would like to see in more Brotherhood modes.

15) A customization of the Multiplayer experience (logos, avatars, objects, team names, etc.)

- Sounds interesting, its really one of the few things I liked about MW2, but I dont need it to enjoy the AC Multiplayer.

I like the enhanced Eagle Vision and context sensitive bombs part.

It would allow the game to have unique ways in finding secret areas and shortcuts, plus add some interesting puzzles.

AC:B puzzles are basically just the glyph puzzles and take you out of the gameworld. And finding the secret areas are as simple as running up to a door and pressing the button.

I don't quite understand this survey.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
I am from Sweden and when I've almost completed it, it asks which part of Great Britain I'm from, and also it says that I'm not the age for answering this survey either. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
Is it only the englishmen who are going to be able to make a change with this survey? I want to make a change too &gt;.&lt; I want to continue Ezio's story! He is my favourite character of all times!

And of course, I love the other AC games too, it's just that I have become attached to him http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

Anyway, anyone that knows how you can answer this?

Yeah, the survey is directed towards a specific age group, location and possibly education level.
I bet it's directed at chavs. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I've read in at least one article about the survey that it's UK-only.

Don't have a link right now, but will try to get one tomorrow afternoon.

I was just joking. The company that made the survey probably has limitations on what their survey's results can consider useful for whatever purpose it was created for.
So to make it easier, their survey might not bother collecting certain data.

I have to agree with a previous poster: this survey is a bit weird. I actually work with this kind of thing and I think it just takes some things for granted when formulating the questions. Like, it just assumes you find the controls tight and the free-running satisfying.

I don't.

I think a lot of times the character does stuff I didn't want it to do and, omg, why can't I just walk off the side of a building intead of jumping or grabbing the ledge?! No way to express it there, though.

You can actually walk off the side of a building intead of jumping or grabbing the ledge. Just hold R1 (on PS3)and walk of the ledge. :*D

That grabbing onto the edge of a roof Ezio is on, even when I am holding the high profile button, can be very annoying sometimes.

Like when I am chasing a Borgia messenger or pickpocket. I may not want to jump off a rooftop, but instead want to fall off and land unto a lower one. If the roof Ezio is on is just high enough, then Ezio flips around and grabs the ledge instead. Not what I want to happen. He can safely fall high distances when he gets better gear.

The odd time that did happen, it makes the whole chase almost go up in smoke.
That really is my only gripe within the free-running aspect of the game.

Well USA got the closed Beta so I'm actually quite happy that for once, Britain or at least a non-american country get's to make an exclusive difference for once. Why can't these companies have Beta's for all countries, at least that way they can test BEFORE the game's launched the servers, considering there's about 3hours of my life up to now i know i'll never get back due to "waiting for abstergo employees" =/ lol... BUT, i still dont think its fair that its a closed survey, why not let everyone? after all, we do pay your wages Ubisoft :@

In order to take the survey you must identify yourself as a Male from the UK above age 18, but remember which date you put for your birthday because they will ask you to confirm it later.

i've been trying it and it only lets me do the first two questions: age and gender. i think it already knows where you're accessing from because i don't even get to a location option before i get locked out and told i'm not part of the demographic.
