It is a nice addition to compare yourself with your friends and see how you're doing overall, but the friend points...i find them pointless to be honest.

Other than that, it's a nice addition to check your progress quickly instead of the old AC:B list.

I like it and think it is a nice addition. My only complaint is when you go to the friends menu it is in a random order, not alphabetical, whose online or anything. That is a little bit of a nuisance.

I think it was a nice addition, specially the dares and friends leaderboards.

I like it; it seems to make joining friends in games easier. It's also interesting to see others' scores in particular modes.

However, I would like some sort of additional explanation about how Friend points are earned - clearly points are gained by getting better scores than your friends, but why do the scores decay so quickly? Overnight I went down about 20 or so points.

A table of how often each bonus has been earned, compared to one's friends would also be a great addition, IMO.

Yeah i also like the friend dares. It's pretty cool.
But like Zoidberg said, i would also like people to be in alphabetical order.

I love the new navigation and friends-hub. Its much easyer und faster to join a friends session.

I wish it wouldnt be delayed that much sometimes. For example: My friend joined a session and tells me in the chat that I can join. It takes 30sec till I see that he is in a session and before im able to join, the session is already full.

I personally like the friend hub in its entirety. I like the dare system and it helps me keep track of what game modes I need to improve at to be comparable with my friends. I might would suggest adding an average score per game mode to the list or something similar but I like what is there.

I like the Friends' Hub. It's cool to see the ranking among the people you know. Besides the alphabetizing the only problem is that I can't join many friends games through the Hub because of 'network issues' - even though we all have Open NAT - but I will often just happen upon then when joining a game normally.

It is really a nice addition to the menu. Only problem I have is when you search for friends in your menu, and they randomly pop up. Sometimes I have to look at the bottom of the list to find a friend, and sometimes it takes not more than a click. An alphabetical order would be nice

I really like the addition, some order to it would be nice alphabetical and online for example.

A rating of the per session score for the different modes would be really cool.

and I also agree with above poster as to the idea behind those friends points things...don't know what they are for exactly.

One thing that annoys me is that I can try to join a player in a match and it tells me that they're available, but when I try to jump into their session, it tells me that it's unavailable, despite the match not being full.

That just seems like false hope to play with an Unreachable player.

I also don't see the point in Friend Points. They don't award me in any way aside from being given to me for beating a friend's score. If they could be traded in for maybe double the amount of Abstergo Credits, it could be useful to compete.

I'd also like it if the scores reset every month, as something similar to what Templar Scores were to ACB. That would allow a player to not be stuck against a high score and be unable to gain any more Friend points.

Alphabetizing the players in the Friends section would be nice, because it allows for more quicker playing.

If Dares and Friends could be merged too, it would be good. An icon could appear next to their name and a button press would show you what they beat you in.

It is a really good idea and actually promotes competition.

It's a really cool idea a works really well with the great new menu. I would like to see more customization/personalization to the templar profile. And, what the heck do friend points do.

I would Also like to see some templar score type thing, but the score resets at 0 every week instead of adding up

I like the Friends Hub but find that I have to scroll through all my friends to find the ones that are online on ACR so I can play with them.

I'd like to see them listed by online status and then alphabetically.

Good Feature my only complaint about Multiplayer as well as many others is the beginning screen is VERY Skimped on T.T it actually hurts me to say AC skimped on anything but ya it is... and the MP is Very Confusing to work your way around at first T.T still kind of confuses me should have made it Simpler and Easier to get your way around it

first i really like the idea of it all and how easy it is to compare your stats to your friends stats. i would like to see a more comprehensive stat block like number of incog or reckless kills or even % of kills in each kill type. number of hidden kills drop kills you get it.

the list of friends NEEDS to be put in some kind of order when i go in to look at a few people stats after i look at each person it re-shuffles the order and i have to start looking again.

the friend points are cool i think that a little chart or info page telling people how you win or lose them and what they mean might make people think more of them.

and i would just like to throw in that i love how it shows what persona you use the most.

i think it's quite useful mostly for "competitive" aspects, since through it you can immediately "tell" your friends you beat them in a certain mode, ect.

and vice versa, they can communicate to you that they had a better score...


ps. i hope i correctly understood the question... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I like the Friends Hub and think it's a smart addition, but I think it'd be pretty neat if other kinds of Dares would added for things besides pure points. Dares for stuns, kills, artifacts captured, and so on could be pretty fun, I think.

It's a nice addiction, but I think it should be in alphabetical order.

when I make a group I need to play with MY GROUP every game.
Also it takes too long to get a game going with my group, I've been trying for the last 30 minutes to start a manhunt game. But we keep getting divided and sent to different servers.

It seems that the joining friend's game/inviting a friend is bugged... There are obviously slots and the game hasn't started.. but my friend could not join my game/i cannot join his game. I dont know if it's our nat thing... or ip address or whatnot..

it says "session is no longer available"

Please fix this.

It will be fantastic to play in the same team with my friends, and no against them. It worked perfectly in AC: Brotherhood and I don't understand why it has changed.

Thanks for deal with the problem!!!

There's this really annoying bug on the PC where if you accidentally hit down on the Dpad or press right trigger while choosing skill sets, your character will always run.

You have to hold down right trigger to walk and when you let it go, you run. It's pretty annoying. It doesn't reset until a new match begins too.

It was hard to get used to it after Brotherhood, but now I like the friends hub.
I wish everyone could change its name shown to other players (like in Steam). I hate to be recognized as the admin of ZAC... And I wish I could hide my stats and ignore statistics of others.

I have to say, I need more information on skills and perks to judge properly, but even I would say that I would have preferred a 'Coin Throw' and 'Teleport Baits and bodyguards. I hope dark versions do not come back unless there is also a Dawn also the maps found in a normal night. Here's to hoping that 'Souk' is like http://forums.techarena.in/video-games/1440091.htm Siena

It would be fantastic to view the session results of someones high score in the hub in every mode. It would be just as cool if you could view your session results for your high score in the hub.

That way you could see all the bonuses it took to get that score. I would really enjoy unraveling some of my friends scores.

I won't say anything new, it's good, it would benefit from some sort of ordering and most importantly it needs a messaging system. In ACB i made some online friends (people whom I didn't like before that) because of the messaging system. Since I'm using a new account for revelations, I'm starting from 0 friends, messaging would help

I couldn't see the point of it at first, but now I really like it. I have always been a Wanted player only, but the Friends Hub has motivated me to play all the other modes too. I may have no real desire to play Corruption, for example, but if I see that one of my friends has beaten my highest score then I'm straight in there to try to beat them back.
However, if this has contributed in any way to the removal of Templar Grade from the leaderboard stats then I am not so happy. I love the Friends Hub highest scores leaderboards, but it's no substitute for knowing where we stand globally in that rolling 4-week leaderboard, which seems the truest indicator of form and constant motivator to keep trying harder.

Nice thing, the friends hub. But way too many buttons to be pushed in setting up a session, inviting and all.
Can't you just say F5 to invite, and F5 to accept, or something?
Or have a simple drag and drop box to invite like BF3 has?
When invitation pops up, give us a list of buttons and text to push, rather than to have to click, click, click around in all those menu's. Devs seem to like lots of menu's, in menu's, in menu's; players do not.

What did you do today? I clicked through menu's. And o, yes, next to that I played a bit too...

I want to be able to have an online/offline status.
Chat window.
Message ability accompanying invitation, so that you know why one invites you.
All messages and invites should be kept for some time, so that they can be consulted later on.

I think putting the friends list in some type of order, Online friends should be listed first, then the rest should be alphabetical. It is time consuming when I am trying to search for a friend to invite and they are all the way at the bottom of the friends list.
