    Um, has the hacking radius decreased in size please?

    Just doing my usual positioning method when I hack, and noticed that the radius is way off position.

    Have you guys decreased the radius?

    I've noticed this too.. you line up the circle to grant u the perfect spot to hide in.. start the hack.. then its like the circle shrinks to the first lowering of the diameter instantly.

    Every hack tonight and last night has done it.

    I havent seen anything in the update notes that mentions this, but its deffo not performing like it used to.

    I think i lost every game as a result of this since the DLC came out.

    Any feedback from the devs regarding this would be helpful, thank you

    Can a mod move this to Technical Support please?

    I think this is a proper bug that needs attention.

    might be worth raising it the correct way?

    https://support.ubi.com

    Tech support forum is one thing.. logging it as a ticket is another.

    No chance, it took them 6 months to reply to me on an issue in WD1.

    I posted it in Tech Support forum, which describes itself as a place for reporting bugs......

    Hello,

    I'll see what I can find out for you but please feel free to report it to our Support team in the meantime, just in case it is not a new feature.

    Thanks

    I'm experiencing this too. As soon as the hacking starts the hacking area shrinks. Makes invasions near impossible. Also had this happen while I was at 92% complete against two targets, all of a sudden I was 50 meters outside of the hacking zone and had to move fast. Luckily I was in pretty much the only possible location where I could pull it off.

    Hello,

    This seems to be working as intended and there have always been two reductions. If you still think this is an issue, do you have any before/after examples I could share?

    Thanks!

    Not correct, there always used to be three. Now the first shrink starts immediately at 0%, then there's one at 25% and 50%. From 50% and out the circle is at its smallest, which should happen from 75%. The biggest problem with this, like others have pointed out, is that the hacking area is now never like you line it up to be before starting the hack. It's like buying a kilogram of cheese, but immediately after you have payed for it it's suddenly 750 grams even if you didn't eat anything.
