View Full Version : Multiplayer Level Range Grouping and Restrictions

01-24-2012, 09:25 AM
Hey guys.

Just noticed that when I started playing I barely ever saw prestiged players, but, as I'm now also prestiged I've noticed I see a lot more of them. I simply assumed more players were joining as this is a relatively new game. This was fine until I tired to play with my level 15 mate, and the game wouldn't let me connect to any of his sessions, or vice versa. It seems as though Ubisoft has put in some sort of level grouping for it's programmed matches.

Hence, to ACR gamers across all platforms I ask:
Have you noticed this to any extent? Cheers :)

Yep, that's how the matchmaking system is supposed to work. Pairing up players in the same level range is way more fair than throwing low levels and Prestiges together.

Ah okay thanks :)

Do you now if there is some kind of exception that allows paring of high and low leveled players, say, if there aren't enough people playing in your level range? Sometimes I see very low levels in games with prestiged players.
If not, who will poor Mr 99 Prestige play :( ?

Oh yeah, but it's totally fair to put a level one prestige with like a level 20 prestige. *rolls eyes* I just got done playing and that's all I saw. All these leveled up prestige a$$holes who play like sh!t. Nobody plays the way you're supposed anymore. Everybody just runs around, throws smoke bombs, uses trip wires, and hits the stun button until they find a pursuer. Nobody blends and uses real tactics. I don't get it. Especially the prestige players. They are supposed to be better right? WRONG. All it does it give them an excuse to be bigger a$$holes.

well you could always create a group and get your low leveled friends to join :) no offense meant lol.
I can imagine Mr. 99 prestige :D :D forever alone

GLHS - to some extent i know what your talking about and i hate them too. But often in the more tactical game modes such as escort i find that its the higher prestiges ( who are still owning up which kinda sucks) are using the possible kill points to their full extent such as grabbing a hidden,poison,chain ..etc kill all in one. So just pointing out the generalisation doesnt refer to all prestiges :)

Oh I know it doesn't. I didn't mean everybody. It's just a huge problem for people that actually want to play with stealth in modes that stealth should be used, i.e. Wanted, Deathmatch. Stuff like that. I play Wanted mainly, and that's why. I don't really like the team based modes much, as they don't require as much stealth, and there's even more people just running around to get a kill. Their version of CTF is pretty cool though. But it became a huge issue in Brotherhood, and it's even a bigger issue now in Revelations. I am sick of people using cheap tactics to get cheap kills and just running everywhere and roofing. If Ubisoft changes anything about multiplayer in AC3, they seriously need to make a consequence to running, unless you're actually in chase mode. They need to start emphasizing real tactical, stealthy gameplay, instead of just rewarding it with extra points. As it stands now, you can barely get the extra points anyway because of how everybody plays, and they get no punishment points-wise or anything for running around. Them being more easily seen just isn't good enough, since nobody seems to care and just does whatever they want anyway.

am barely Prestige 2,
ANY higher than prestige 9, the only thing you see is the standrd smoke bomb spams, ...realy , spaming. Not goin to bitc* arround that smoek should not be used but...serieusly, there are far more skills than just the smoke bomb. EVERY prestige 10+ used a smoke on me, be it defesne or offensive, on every contract. Even on the aerial kills ( the only way to deal with those smoking bastards, but realy? encourage even more roofing?? ) they somehow managed so see me or predicted me and trhew a smoke at the ground JUST to be sure and mash the Circle button.

i have not seen any prestiges like that high, and pwn my *** the stealth way, the only diference from thier kills on me, from the low lvs is that they get a focus here and there, so more points. add teh smoke bomb and thats all they know. Walk with a gawd dam group thats moving towards me , surpise me then you are "Prestige" not like just roof/smoke/Sprint

Exactly. Same thing here. The highest I've seen is a Prestige level 21. But most of them have been levels 1-5. I'm just seriously sick of all of it. People just completely ruined a good thing, and it's trashed for good now. Unless Ubisoft can do something to change and prevent people from doing stupid sh!t like that.
