    Feedback on Connor Kenway :3

    Hello guys:

    I just wanted to help the people in http://wolfkininitiative.tumblr.com/ with their feedback on Connor. They are planning to send letters to Ubisoft very soon. So, if any of you guys who are fans of Connor feel like it, please send them your letters. They need 20 well written letters to send, be as detailed as you can be and show them why you like Connor, if you are going to criticize him you have to be constructive and polite. Trash will be thrown to trash i have to say. For more info check the website.

    Edit:

    I'm posting this directly from their website for people who have doubts on how to write their letters:

    ASSASSINS, WE RIDE AT DAWN!

    I have summoned all ye to yet another meeting:

    Tonight marks our second official round of sending letters to Ubisoft head offices.

    How can this be done? Well here’s what you can do:

    One of our admins will be sending Ubisoft a package of fan letters on the 8th of March, which basically depicts our stance, why we want more Connor, and everything we’ve been working so hard to tell them via Facebook and their official website.

    So I would urge all of you to type out a letter in the submissions box labelled ‘WOLFKIN LETTER INITIATIVE’ and send it in to be printed off and physically sent in by admin Annie.

    Within the next few days, we will be selecting 20 letters, which will be printed out and sent by old school mail to Ubisoft’s Head Office in Montreal. All you to do is leave your name and maybe the province or state you live in just so they can tract which places are giving them the most feedback.

    Please note that there is no need to give us your address—that is, unless you’d like to receive something back from Ubisoft regarding your letter. In that case, you can give us your return address in the submissions box. We assure you that everything will remain COMPLETELY confidential; none of your information will be shared, EVER.

    If you have trouble thinking about what to write to Ubisoft, here are some suggestions:

    Write about The Tyranny of King Washington, what you like and don’t like about it
    Write about how much Connor means to you and why you want another game with him
    Write about the Wolfkin Initiative: tell Ubisoft that it is an online portfolio showcasing all of our fan creations, personal letters and confessions about Connor. Tell them that the reason why this portfolio exists is to let them know that there are people out there that love Connor and do want another game with him. Please make sure to emphasize to Ubisoft that we are not here to meddle with their development teams’ ideas; we just want to encourage them that we have their back, that we do love the character they created. Because they themselves said that they are considering about making a sequel for Connor if his reception in the fandom is a positive one.
    ^ I stress this out because we had an incident happen with one of our admins when she e-mailed an Ubisoft employee. The employee thought that she was trying to meddle with the dev teams and was rude in his response, regardless of her further replying with a clearer explanation of her letter.

    Now you can try to e-mail Ubisoft yourself, but keep in mind that most of them won’t reply back to what you send to them, and some would act rude due to all the recent stress they’ve been dealing lately with their angry Rayman fanbase. If you want to take the risk and e-mail Ubisoft, make your e-mail short and casual. Also emphasize to them that you’re not there to meddle with their dev teams, in case you want to mention the Wolfkin Initiative and show them a link to the page.


    If you still can’t think of anything to write, see my example as something to inspire you:

    _______________________________________________

    Dear Ubisoft,

    First of all, I would like to thank you for making Assassin’s Creed III and for introducing me to Ratonhnhaké:ton, aka ‘Connor’. I was so moved by the entire story, especially in experiencing every moment of Connor’s life as it unfolds beneath him. As much as I love Altair and Ezio (they will always have a special place in my heart), I would say that Connor has quickly become my most favourite assassin to date. I felt like I connected to him the most; there are just so many things that I can relate to him.

    I liked how he is an idealist and has that as both his strength and his weakness. Through his idealism and determination, you have shown me how human and real he is. Even though Connor was stubborn, naive and childish at times, I admired how he never gave up and would still keep the good fight going. I also love the juxtaposition of his kind-hearted personality and his brutal fighting style—it showed me that there are so many dimensions to Connor, that I am willing to explore more about him in another game.

    Because of this, a good handful of fans and I have began this mission called the ‘Wolfkin Initiative’. The Wolfkin Intiative is mainly an online portfolio showcasing all of our fan works that relate to Connor. We would appreciate it if you take the time to view each and every one of them and tell us what you think:

    http://WolfkinInitiative.tumblr.com/collection

    Each and every one of these fan creations were made with love, in hopes of letting you know just how many of us have come to appreciate Connor and wish to have another game about him.

    I trust that they inspire you as well, just as much as Connor has inspired us.

    Niá:wen,

    [First Name, Last Name]

    _______________________________________________

    Also, if you are an indigenous American or have at least a smidgen of native blood in your, our admin, Annie, will be doing something special for all of you.

    Send your letters to either Annie’s tumblr (Le-doux) or through the Wolfkin Initiative submission button with the title: ‘LETTERS FOR CONNOR: -INSERT ANCESTRY HERE-’ That way, she can sift through any of our usual emails and find the actual letters. As for those who wish to send them to her directly, you can also send them through her personal submissions box here, [PERSONAL SUBMISSIONS BOX ]; that way she can access them quicker. GOOD LUCK.

    So guys! You have until March 8th to get cracking on those letters!

    There's a lot of people on that website suggesting people are racist for not liking Connor. I liked Connor, a lot, but I'm not going anywhere near a community with that kind of attitude. I guess I'll just be a "lone" Connor fan. Enjoy trying to get Ubisoft to commit to fan service.

    Who is this Connor Kenway you speak of? Are you possibly referring to Connor the late 1700's Assassin, trained and named as such by Achilles Davenport? Born Ratonhnhaké:ton, son of Kaniehtí:io and Haytham Kenway?

    And, yeah. I love Connor, but that community is really obnoxious. It's Tumblr...what can you expect?

    They don't say that at all. I suppose it has to do with some of the adimn being indian- blooded too. But don't take their comments about racism to harshly, all what matters is the feedback on Connor :3
