What are your favourite sets to use in the games? I mean actual favourites here too, not the ones that guarantee you a load of points.

AC:B

Wanted: Disguise/Knives

Alliance: Disguise/Poison

Manhunt: Knives/Poison & Mute/Knives

Chest Capture: Templar Vision/Knives & Disguise/Smoke (Disguise/Knives if not solo. I also like Sprint Boost/Smoke)

Escort: Gun/Poison & Disguise/Smoke (Disguise/Poison if they won't get stolen.)

Assassinate: Knives/Gun (Yes, I'm a ****. Deal with it.)

AC:R

Wanted: Smoke/Knives

Deathmatch: Gun/Smoke (Animus Hacks FTW! \o/)

Artifact Assault: Smoke/Knives

Corruption: Disguise/Smoke

STA: Mute/Smoke

Manhunt: Disguise/Smoke & Mute/Smoke

Chest Capture: Disguise/Smoke (Both Rounds.)

Escort: Gun/Smoke & Mute/Smoke

Assassinate: Mute/Smoke

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notice how I don't really use Smoke at all in AC:B, and yet it's everywhere in my AC:R sets? Well it's because I hate it. I want to know what you enjoy using so I can get rid of it. I don't want the sets that give you big scores, I want the ones you find the most fun. After playing Manhunt for months trying to get scores, only to realise that you just get better and want increasingly higher scores, I've grown bored of it. I already have my "fun set" for DM, but the other modes need some amusement too if I'm to start playing AC:R over AC:B. Why do I want to play AC:R rather than AC:B? Because it's the only place I can get an Escort match, and Escort is by far my favourite mode.

Obviously I'll be trying out my own sets to make my own judgement on what I like, but helpful hints on how you have fun with your sets would be appreciated. :D

Also, if you try to justify why you think OSB is fun for any other reason than "protecting your streak to get Animus Hacks for lulzy Animus Hack fun time" I will be ignoring you. :|

AC:B (I dont play it anymore)

Wanted: from most to less frequent: mute+smoke, poison+disguise, poison+smoke, gun+smoke

Alliance: mute+smoke

Manhunt: tv+fc, mute+smoke

Chest Capture: poison+disguise, mute+smoke

Escort: gun+smoke, poison+disguise

Assassinate: poison+smoke

AC:R

Wanted: mute+smoke or gun+smoke (compared to ACB I almost never play wanted)

Deathmatch: aside from doing some ability challenges (easier to get in this mode) I almost never played DM, its boring crap for me. but I used disguise+smoke for normal matches

Artifact Assault: teleport+smoke, mute+smoke, gun+smoke (with a very special present for other team called animus hack streak), default set 1

Corruption: gun+smoke, mute+smoke

STA: mute+smoke or teleport+smoke (with minor animus hack)

Manhunt: knifes+fc or default set 2, mute+smoke

Chest Capture: same as manhunt

Escort: gun+smoke, mute+smoke

Assassinate: poison+smoke

This does not cover every possible set, just what I use 90% of the time. I have no trouble going with gun in assassinate (if players are just *right*) or doing things like playing manhunt defense with default set 2 (which is great when used properly).

AC:B

Wanted: Mute/Smoke

Manhunt: Disguise/Knives; Disguise/FC; Disguise/Smoke and on Defense the usual Mute/Smoke

Assassinate: Poison/Smoke

AC:R

Wanted: Smoke/Knives; Mute/Smoke

Deathmatch: Disguise/Smoke; Disguise/Poison and if I want to have fun Disguise/Teleport

STA: Morph/Smoke

Manhunt/CC/Corruption: Disguise/Knives; Smoke/Knives and on Defense Mute/Smoke

Assassinate: Mute/Smoke; Knives/Smoke

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yea, looks as if I have a similar problem. Should stop smoking, it causes lung cancer! ;)

I don't understand, why you use gun in AC:B Assassinate. At least in AC:R I would understand it, because it's an easy kill for your streak.

Like you I stopped trying to get higher scores. I got enough of it back in Brotherhood where I realised that trying to stay in top 10 overall templar grade ruins all fun I had earlier. You see, templar grade was broken on PC for a long time, and then when it got repaired many players including me started to play for scores. So it was really easy to feel the difference. I dropped this routine after 2 months and became free again.
I dont use OSB (much, haha). Not because I hate it, but because I dont feel like I need to in order to win. Its not even overpowered in my eyes. For example disguise, fc or knifes are easier to use in manhunt offense to get uncontested kills and cause your targets to waste abilities. What really makes SB overpowered is its versatility especially when combined with other abilities.

AC:B

Wanted: Disguise/Poison (obviously grants a lot of points when used right but it's genuinly fun to use) or Decoy/Morph for the lolz (and 400 lures)

Alliance: Disguise/Poison

Manhunt: Off: Disguise/Knives or Sprint Boost/Gun for those special occasions - Def: Sprint Boost/Firecrackers or Sprint Boost/TV

CC: Some abilities

Escort (Escort on AC:B, funny one): Gun/TV or Gun/FC, Disguise/Poison

Assassinate: Sprint Boost/Charge (don't ask ^^)

AC:R

Haven't played it in so long but..

Assassinate: Smoke/Teleport - Offensive smoke target, teleport away, turn around and proceed to taunt for no reason. Notice look of confusion, run away, wall hump in dark corner.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some of those sets are for pure fun. They may be stupid but that's the point, it makes the game more enjoyable. There's not enough Sprint Boost in your list Alex, not happy :|

Sprint Boost makes running too easy though. Last time I used it in Wanted I got Extreme Variety...

Plus I have built in Sprint Boost, just ask Ted. xD

@A123ffe: I use the gun because a) it means I can get a proper kill without that guy on the nearby roof killing me straight after, and b) because sometimes I just really can't be bothered. :D

ACB:
wanted:
-disguise/poison (obviously easiest way to get high scores, still pretty fun to play without just aiming for points but gets boring on average lobbies)
-empty set (seriously one of the biggest fun was playing wanted ACB with purist set cause you just play it soooo much different than you do when you know you`ve got abilities/perks/streaks in backhand.

haven't really played any other mode in late ACB cause anything except Assassinate and Wanted and Manhunt was quite dead.
I remember using RR smoke/ RR mute in CC and Alliance just for the amount of stuns you could pull off.

ACR:
wanted:
-RR disguise/ 300 points poison pretty much fun on lobbies where u are able to play stealthy
-knives/300 points poison (knives with 1 point in cooldown and 1 in duration (for focus))
-Gun+RR smoke + kill buffer + animus hack (my intended run and gun troll set for lobbies where u just cant play stealthy, quite big fun and in ACR pretty much efficient aswell, gun for fast kills and buffing animus hack and the smoke just to have an overpowered defensive ability to stun ppl. that start chases with you as you run around reaching your targets)

I still miss purist sets here :-(

escort:
-disguise/poison on hunting round (easiest way to get high point kills on VIP's for me cause most ppl. don't happen to watch different Skins walking up near the VIP, that way I most often walk in, poison the VIP and stun an enemy thats walking nearby (if I see none or only 1 enemy nearby I also go for focus on VIP)
sad thing is most often game puts me in rubbish teams where I hardly get to a VIP before it is chase killed or my team mates chase kill, shoot or minor hack a VIP I just poisoned, love that.
-fast aiming Gun/RR knives on defending VIP round
-on some lobbies RR TV/Gun to spot ppl. if they tend to attack the VIP disguised in a blend group

got to say Escort happens to be my favourite Team mode in ACR aswell, works out even better than in ACB cause of the RDM.
actually a mode where stealth is the way to get high points on 1 round and on the other round you can be sucessfull with a herpa derp set if you are able to find the hunters fast.
Also one of the modes that doesn't happen to be that much of a smoke fest cause stun camping isn't the only good way to get points.
I just don`t have ppl. to play it with yet and playing it with randoms most often really sucks in that mode



Edit: and I avoid using smoke in both games cause I already see it anywhere and try to find an alternative, knives are pretty nice in ACR

Never played Brotherhood.

AC:R - on modes I normally play:

Wanted:
Smoke/Poision - use both just to get the poison kill, then I change:
Smoke/Knives
Smoke/Morph
Perks: Run fast to chase and escape


Deathmatch:
Smoke/Poision - use both just to get the poison kill, then I change:
Smoke/Knives


Artifact Assault:
Smoke/Knives
Smoke/Morph
Perks: Run fast to chase and escape


Corruption:
Smoke/Morph - uncorrupted
Knife/Firecrackers - corrupted

Manhunt:
Smoke/Morph - hunted

All above have:
Kill Streak: 250 points
Loss Streak: Score x2


I try and keep Smoke for defense, I tried Mute but find it lags a bit.

AC:B

Wanted: Poison/Smoke (don't OSB, smoke for Defensive purposes)

Alliance: Disguise/Poison...although I used Smoke/Mute more often

Manhunt: Offense - Disguise/Poison or Disguise/knives (also tried Gia's Templar/Knives set wich was fun)
Defense - Mute/Smoke (never really use anything else)

Chest Capture: (didn't play this much) Disguise/Poison with a team or Disguise/Knives if solo or lobby Defense - Mute/Smoke

Escort: (back when I played lol :) ) Templar/Smoke or Gun...when killing VIPs I used either Disguise/Poison or Mute/Smoke (depending on what my teammates want to do)

Assassinate: Poison/Smoke or sometimes FC which might have been funnier, not sure though lol

AC:R

Wanted: since the patch I use Poison/Smoke like in ACB...except don't care much about OSB in ACR

Deathmatch: Poison/Smoke since the patch

STA: Bodygaurd/Morph...although sometimes I might use Mute/Smoke

AC:B

Wanted: RR Gun/Strong sprint boost--Guarantees i get an awesome kill and time to get my *** out of there before I get swarmed by 3 people. This set helped me get my high of 21 kills in a single wanted match lol
Manhunt: QF Gun/S Templar Vision--Obviously. Nothing more epic than sprinting toward a morphed group and activating TV just in time before they drop smoke lol

Well, since all of my sets are made for FFA, here they are... (ACR)

Smoke/Poison

Smoke/Knives

Disguise/Knives

Morph/Decoy

Tripwire Bomb/Bodyguard

Seconded.

Anyway:

Wanted:

1. Disguise/Poison
2. After getting decent points and having more pursuers: Mute/Charge
3. Having a big lead in the game: Morph (or whatever it is called, changing the group) with decoy. Decoy is fun, watching people kill decoys makes me laugh all the time and is quite a lot more enjoying than smokebombing people.

I tend to switch between these three options, depending on my enemies and such. I do have an extra set with athe hidden gun, to get more variety bonusses, but I rarely use it.

Manhunt:

I love this gamemode, but it gets killed by smokebomb abusers (which make me hate the gamemode..). Anway:

Defending: Morph/Decoy, great fun. Watching people throw or drop smoke bombs at your decoy is again very fun to watch ;) If the decoy gets killed, which happens a lot, you can go for a free stun since the person won't be able to kill you (since he doesnt have a contract).
Depending on the situation I use morph/bodyguard aswell, but the bodyguard seems to be a bit unreliable at times.Still, switching between bodyguard and decoy seem to confuse the pursuers at times.
Another set is the mute/charge, but I don't use it as often as I used to. I prefer hiding over playing agressive when I'm the target.

Attacking: Mute/Charge, but this is rather inefficŽnt. Both are countered by smokebombs and about everyone has them, unfortunately.
Templar Vision/Hidden gun is an alternative I use, but I kinda hate it. It's good to kill smokers, but it's no fun at all and with the points you'll be getting, you can't win.
There's not much else that will be usefull when playing Manhunt, I think. Smokebomb, yea. Thanks but no thanks..

Corruption:

Mute/Charge when attacking
Morph/Decoy, Morph/Bodyguard and mute/charge when defending, depending on my enemy. If they are bright, I'll go with the mute/charge. If they are kinda triggerhappy, I'll usualy go for the morph/decoy (great fun!). If they are a bit slow, as in "oh my, it's a group.. which one is it?" kinda guys, I use the bodyguard. Great fun aswell ^^,

a fun high scoring set is TB/SB with kill buffer and a hack streak take the lead and let the fun happen

- free stuns
- free stuns on the same person over and over again
- watching people get mad and do stupid **** like jumping into the middle of the trip bomb and running really fast and hoping it works
- people who throw smoke bombs and casually walk in to get blown up and stunned
- people who wait till someone else sets it off and run in only to get hit by smoke
- baiting roofers
- baiting people who think grab kills are fun

its literally endless ill leave ya to it

MH my 5 that i have set up ACB stuff...dont play that crap ACR anymore

Gun/TV great for breaking up the group initially since they scatter like rats when they see me glow and get the gun out
smoke/charge for double the fun when they get up....only cos i hate it when it happens to me :)
Morph/charge while you are trying to figure out which one i am you will get charged and stunned
morph/smoke see above
Disguise/poison for those pesky players that win games but need to be reminded that they are in a team game and still can be killed by anybody
