Also do you guys have a red message in statistics saying that I cannot compare my stats with friends? Is it possible to find those events when the red message is there?

Yes the social events have been fixed now ^^

As for the red message thing, I'm not really sure, sorry.

According to Ubisoft they were never broken...lol Yeah they seem to be spawning at a better rate. You still need to look around a bit but it's nowhere near as hopeless as it was before.

Regardless, DON'T STOP posting! I'm on XB1 and have found no chests as of yet

Same issue here as kingcrossy. I get a notification for a white whale although it's nowhere to be found on the map. As for chests or convoys, none at all. Playing on PC.

Fixed? Hardly, they're still as nonsensical as ever. I mean, look at this:

Clothes Make the Assassin – Community Event! (Jan 16-21)
Here's your chance to win a new outfit for Edward. All you have to do is assassinate 10 enemies before next Tuesday to become eligible to win the outfit. If the entire Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag community can get a certain number of assassinations, you will all be rewarded with the new outfit! Show us how being a great assassin makes Edward a better pirate!

For current individual and community progress status, check out the in-game pause menu!

How does assassinating people make a great Assassin? If anything, assassinating least enemies possible (other than main targets) makes a great Assassin. I also thought Assassins only killed those whose deaths open the doors to a better feature. Killing random “enemies” doesn’t really make an Assassin and is bad for the order’s name. Also, assassinating is not why Assassins are known or feared. Many people and groups kill. What makes the Assassins stand above the crowd is how they manage to use stealth to become invisible and infiltrate the most difficult locations proving to their enemies that, no matter where they are or how well protected they think they are, they can never escape the Assassin’s blade.

So, if these challenges are meant to form great Assassins, shouldn’t they be about collecting information (investigating) or executing difficult Assassinations (that require thought, patience and creativity)?
After all, this is Assassin’s Creed and not Murder’s Need.
