View Full Version : Match doesn't last long enough?

Anyone else here thinks that 5-10 mins is way too fast? It's okay that the other team deserves to be the assassin's and all, but the match is so fast that everyone just run around like idiots with no stealthing at all -.-(well not everyone). But its understandable with so few time at hand then ppl just go fast to get as many kills as they can. But i think there should be a patch that lets people vote for the match time and in private matches the host could choose it. They surely could give players more options to choose in their game...

I have always wanted the matches to last longer.

They are shortening the matches even more in the next game from what I gather. Hopefully they will change their minds. I really don't want 8 minute only matches.

I still think this is a good idea for private matches, but not so much on Ranked.

Wanted 10mins is ok. But i would like more time on Chest Capture and Manhunt.
But enjoy it while it lasts, in ACR, they are going to be even shorter http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Thing is, Manhunt and CC are already HUGE-scoring in comparison with Wanted - they HAVE to be shorter for the scores to be balanced, unless they break the leaderboards down by mode.

Or they could just make it so that you need more XP to level up to balance that... But maybe in ACR since theres so much lv50 people already. But the point is, they'd rather have ranking system over fun? Well, its fun as long as it lasts. What do you do when theres only like 30-40 seconds left? You walk around for a quality kill or just run like a cheap thug in pursuit of your target? You might have time to do a planned kill at the start, but thats about it.

The rest is mainly Cat&Mouse running. Since the respawns are random and your killer (in wanted or alliance for instance) is right at your throat when 5 steps you do after respawning sometimes. It would be alot better to have more time or just give players the privileges to choose what they want in private matches. But no, we have to stick with the "official rules" always even if you fill a private game room with friends.

Ummm...

It's not at all about leveling up. THAT is fine.

It's about the fact that the leaderboards will be unbalanced towards longer games.

You can score more in Chest Capture in 10 minutes than you can in Wanted in the same amount of time. Same goes for Manhunt. If you want to balance that, you need to increase the length of Wanted, or decrease the length of Manhunt/CC.

Wanted is kind of the "basic" mode for the game, while the others are extras. Making sure THAT has the right match length, then balancing the others against it, makes sense.

I still want Private matches with different lenghts. If you want the others to be balanced indepedently of Wanted, I want them to separate leaderboards by mode. I ACTUALLY want that anyway, but I can't reasonably expect that.

Short match times=/= runners.

Bosses=Runners. And Roofers. btw, neither of those are bad. They're just too boss.

The only time people feel rushed is the last minute or so. Or at least before. I don't play enough to know right now.

You do realize that as long as there is any kind of time limit, the best players are always going to move as fast as possible.

If you don't have time to go for a good kill in the final minute, you don't have time to go for a good kill in the first minute.

Well, I only play Manhunt, so my opinions in this post will be based on that.

I think 10 minutes is enough time, and even 8 minutes would still be enough. Let's face it, most people mainly care about killing, and a 4 minute offensive Manhunt round is plenty of time to get a 5-kill 750 streak. In a full match, I usually streak with at least 1:30 left, even when I am playing with some of the top players in the world on my team.

Even if Manhunt and CC have their times shortened, if they keep in Escort, I'd like it if they increased the scores for it or maybe made a third VIP (or have three VIPs and a slightly higher checkpoint score), seeing as the other two Team modes would share Escort's time.

Right now, people only play it for the concept, but it's let down by how rewarding it is to play a match, and isn't able to compete with the other Team modes in terms of points.

Edit: Now that I think about it, the game mode encourages us to protect our VIPs, but there's no difference between killing a Hunter right next to the VIP and one that happens to be on the other side of the map.

It would be a welcome feature in my opinion if killing a Hunter in close proximity to your VIP would give you a Bodyguard bonus.

The matches seem long enough for me at this moment. I am truly hoping that the shortened time of manhunt during E3 was just for the show, so people at the event can play in greater numbers - marketing strategy.

Yea it is a shame as Escort is a fun mode but you can not achieve any where near the points you can hit in Manhunt or CC.

I like the idea of getting extra points if you kill a hunter within a certain radius of the VIP maybe an added bonus after killing a hidden hunter would receive a nice welcome.

With regards to time I hope they keep wanted as is, 10 minutes I feel is fine plus having 3 pursuers constantly for longer than this would become very stressful for me! I agree with shorting down the duration of both Manhunt and CC matches, this will be more rank friendly because people can gain so many more points in these modes when compared to wanted. I myself usually stick to wanted so the majority of my scores are coming from this mode and are no where near what people can achieve in manhunt.

If they keep it at 5 mins per round though I am not too fused, as long as they keep my wanted at 10 minutes!
