    Message me on steam or something and if I'm there I'll join a game with you guys. I rarely log into the game on PC now as the Templar Grades aren't confirmed as working and I always get invited into team games the very second I log on :/ It's so much easier to ignore people on XBL.

    had a couple of good games with Greg on Manhunt :D epic number of stuns by him.

    though after you left, my teammates were useless. twice i locked on the single target in the middle of them within their killing distance, they wasn't smoked, they let her get away.

    Hehe speaking of which, I seem to be getting 1200 pts worth of stuns per round or so, if I'm doing well. I haven't yet tried killing from a hay bail etc. I've tried the throwing knives but it seems a bit pointless as they can still smoke bomb you. I know decoy and morph are meant to be good, but I seem to do better just by going into a corner of the map where I can see all angles and wait for my persuer to come for me. Some maps I am lucky as my targets are never very far away, and they come to me, others I seem to have to go from the one side of the map to the other (motegerioni for example).

    Speaking of templar grades, I was wondering about that. Next to my name, I've got a purple pentagon, while others have an astergo logo and other things in theirs. When will mine change? Will it change?

    Haha, I was trying to complete the powerless challenge, only to see that there were three parts or something. I've done part one and I've got something like 50 more mutes to do :( Oh well. Must keep at it :) My game name in game is mercury_on_fire btw.

    When it works again it should. The Abstergo symbol is shown for Grand Masters. They're in the top 2% of the Templar Grade Pyramid. Actually sounds more impressive than it is. Pretty much everyone is a GM. The Ranked games take your top 3 scores from the week to get your weekly total. When it works you then have to get more than 75% of the last 4 weeks scores (I think) to be 'in the green' otherwise your score goes down. So to simplify, you just need to get better scores every week to move up.

    They broke about 3 or 4 weeks ago though. They should work this Sunday, but no-one is 100% certain they will.

    aaahhh, i've already liked the AC page. ah well.

    just like BF3 thing, doubt it will unlock early. or same as Portal 2, won't make much difference anyway.


    i've just give Alliance another try, tasked to kill a useless pair first round, while getting chased by a pair of lunatics. result? i got huge amount of stun points, by stunning those 2 together, then getting killed by the first stunned person. but second round was hopeless, both me and my teammate cannot catch the roof lunatics, so even though we were 5000:3000:500 up, still came second :waah: the useless pair cannot defend to save their lives, so just allowed the lunatics to run around and get over 20 kills them both combined.

    there really need to be some sort of penalty for staying on the roof. it's Assassin's creed, patience and cunning should be rewarded.

    I'm gonna make a profile with hidden gun and some other bits to try and deal with rooftop runners tbh. Is there any way you can get more than 100pts with a gun kill??

    if you release gun button while they are in the air, you get an air kill bonus. that's it. hardly worth the effort of chasing them down.

    Except the mp is about Templars, not the Assassins ;) To be honest, roofing and winning that way is hard. The best way to learn to deal with roofers is to try playing as one. You get a feel for how people will react and how to cut them off. I am a roofer & a runner in Assassinate, which is hilarious considering how in Wanted I never used to run or go on the rooftops if I could help it! In Assassinate you can run and lock at the last second and still get incognitos though.

    With the gun I think the most I've seen someone get for shooting me was about 600. You can use x2 on it and they had some other bonuses like revenge/poacher/saviour/mid-air/whatever... In Escort where you only get 100pts no matter what the kill, the gun is kinda handy tbh.

    I am now retiring from this ridiculously buggy game on PC. Today it will just BSOD my machine whenever I fire up multiplayer. Then it wiped all my challenge unlocks. No way to get it back. It's happened to a lot of other people and now I guess it decided to happen to me.

    With all the other problems I can no longer be bothered to deal with the BS. All my friends play it on xbox so I will continue my silly matches there, but I'm done with the PC version. I'm also kind of sick of people telling me how to play when I've been playing since the end of Jan anyway on console tbh... So, bye. Have fun with the buggiest game I've had the misfortune to own. I won't be buying Ubisoft again, I'll be renting the next games...

    I'm not sure it's PB as it was happening as soon as I launched MP, not going into Ranked games, which is the only bit PB is active for as far as I'm aware.

    I have raised loads of support tickets with Ubisoft. They just close them as 'solved' without doing anything. I have zero faith in their support system.

    There have just been too many problems. A game should just run, it shouldn't make me jump through hoops like this. I have had enough. Losing all my unlocks just sucks, but it's lost all my messages as well. So if anyone sent me anything in the last week or so, I'm never gonna see it. I've just managed a few games without it blue screening, but without half the things I'm used to using and the ridiculously bad lag that's been reintroduced since the server reboot I just can't be bothered any more. Something that does amuse me, I messaged some of the people I've been playing to let them know that's it, I'm finished. Guess what? They're finished with it too. People will only put up with so much...

    I am angry I wasted money on it. The 360 version is easier to play with friends, so I'm staying there.

    Give us the link to the thread u were talking about? I can't seem to find reports of it happening to other people. I seem to have lost a load of my completed challenges too. No more long lasting smoke bomb, no rr smoke bomb, nothing more than basic poison, etc etc. Can't say I wasn't expecting it. Can't say it's affected me as bad as I thought it would but it's still annoying.

    it's a ghost town on ACBH. :(

    been trying for the last 2 days to get into a game, zero luck. looks like everyone's bought themselves a PS3 to play Revelation.

    anyone know if Revelation will be out on PC at the same time as others?

    I've had a code for the PS3 beta of the next game despite the fact that I've played all the 360 versions of AC (although I did get also get AC2 with my PS3). Will probably give it a go, but I'm not convinced my net speed will be fast enough (it's dropped a lot in the last couple of months - probably too much downloading on Steam :( )

    Heh, I wish they had just had a normal server browser thing to use in the pc version of the game. The whole 'searching for abstergo agents' for like 15 minutes is a load of bs. Have the list of connections, and then let people join.
