Firstly, why can't the forumers get to do this? I would have thought some of us if not all would have been good choices to do the survey

Second - Does this mean AC5 isn't the next installment? Think about it, they cant just get feedback now and then implement it into a game thats already been worked on for a year. I am guessing that the next AC game will be a spin off.

Well look at ACIV, that was worked on at the same time AC3 was and so much of ACIV feels like a direct response to AC3 critiscisms. They could also be gauging how well they think their current project fits the fans preferences.

It might feel that way but it doesn't mean that it was a direct response. I remember Ashraf saying that the team that did ACIV were mostly new people to the AC project with newer/fresher ideas.

Hmmm...well they put out a survey after AC3 didn't they? Maybe the next game is a spin-off and they are really taking their time with ACV.

I really hope it's not a pirate spin-off, Black Flag was awesome but I've had enough of pirates. They need to keep it fresh - that's why IV was great, but they better not run the Pirate theme into the ground like they did with the renaissance.

I hope its nothing to do with pirates either, although I doubt it will be.

I doubt it will be a spin-off. A new protagonist means a numbered title, no? And I don't see us playing Edward or any other previous Assassins again.

Where was the survey held anyway? Who received it?
I'm a loyal Assassin's Creed and Ubisoft fan and it just went completely past me...

I got an email asking me to do a survey to "make the next game better", but I was too late to fill it in.

Weird, I didn't get anything... And I always read my emails. Ah well.
Would've loved to fill it out.
ACIV brought me back good memories from the 2003 Bethesda released Pirates of the Caribbean game... Glad that after 10 years there was another game like it.

I only received an email about a forums survey (where I answered "other" as the rest of the options didn't cover me completely. As a regular, I come here to be part of the AC community in general).

Maybe they didn't send me the other one because I tend to like most things in AC anyway. Easy to please. lol

Shouldn't be it, since everyone has an opinion. I just would've assumed everyone got sent a or the survey. Or at least, and especially, everyone owning all the main AC games, even more especially owning all the most advanced released versions of the games and season passes, etc.
But instead I was left out, seems like a shame. Guess it must be because I have all of them for PC.

they probably didn't send this survey to most people active here because many of us would certainly give the kind feedback that does not fit their current business model since we know the game better than any random people that just played AC2 or casuals that don't pay attention to details, they want the game to stay as it is since they don't have the time to properly work on it, if these surveys give them the answer they don't want to hear, they'll be "forced" to do something (assuming they actually take these surveys into consideration no matter their result) and won't have more excuses to don't do something to fix what's broken...

Because everyone on the forums wants a Japanese AC, Chinese AC or something with people in black pajamas and swords.

Heh don't feel bad. I bought AC1 and 2 on both systems THEN PC. I own all the rest on PS3 AND PC after that. I didn't get the survey and I do everything AC haha. I was hoping I'd get it too... Just wanted to get my vote in on the modern day protagonist stuff.

Hoping we get an Assassin that looks sort of like the one from Brahman or something this time.

On the contrary a random sample is the best way to go about doing it.

Everyone on the forums PLUS others. I didn't say just the forumers.

I suppose you have a point there... However, the most involved fans of the franchise feel a little left out, while anyone who just played one of the games might not even open the survey, let alone send in a fully answered one.
Then better to send out multiple surveys or one in which it asks which game(s) you've played.

umm... I got a survey, but I don't think it was the same as everyone eles.

It was about me asking a question of support in the forums?

This. I read the first post, and this was my thought entirely.

I remember getting these before when no one else did. But I haven't received one in a long time.

Same deal here. Maybe they sent out the wrong survey to everyone?

Agreed.

Mine to. It didn't even apply to me, so I just jumped ship on it after about five to six questions.

Screw the forums, that went downhill when it became a 3+ baby zone.

You can't, which is the problem.

The survey is an opportunity for Ubisoft to improve their support services. With my recent experience of their *unsatisfactory* support service I gave them my candid feedback.

No, that's a different survey. Two were released, the one we're talking about is future game specific.

What I don't understand is why I got an email for the survey revolving around their support services when I, to the best of my knowledge, have never used their support services.

I just checked my e-mails and I received the survey on 25th November, but... I only got my new PS3 yesterday and I wanted to finish the game first before giving feedback. -__- They should have really given us more time - at least a month. Oh well...

Same here, just feeling let down by Ubi it seems they favour some fans though.. I've seen this happen on Twitter.

I honestly think it's just randomly sent out to people. And the URL you asked for has nothing on it but a message telling me the study has been closed.

Hey Lonna! *hugs* it has been forever I missed you too!

Yeah it's just something I've observed, I won't name any names it's just from an objective viewpoint, I'm not applying what i said to all Ubi teams it's just some that favour certain fans and send them free AC stuff all the time.
