In all of my previous years of playing video games, I've only been able to get a little smell of what I was doing. But now, it appears I will get to taste double agent, because every aspect of it will be spoon fed to us from our good friends at ubisoft.
What a relief huh? I mean after a few years, didn't all of you guys get tired of actually having to learn how to play the game? Yeah, thatââ‚¬™s so 2003.
Instead of turning on my flashlight, and having my friend watch my back as I inspect around every corner, I will turn on my trusty proximity device and find those sneaky spies with ease, and send my friend off on other duties. And instead of mining the outside of an important vent, or placing a spytrap near its exit, ill just send a drone that can fly into it, and move on.
Whats missing from double agent then? Ahh yes thatââ‚¬™s right, a learning curve. Back when CT was in its prime, I respected the fact that I just got served by people like Havok or Mr. Mic, the entire "LoS" and "CK" clans, and all of those "leet" PC players, and I went and found people that were of a similar skill level to play with, until I felt I was better at the game.
Thatââ‚¬™s no fair though, even though all of them put over 100 hours into the game, I should stand a chance against them right? No, I shouldn't, I should just leave and find people of my own skill to practice against. And THAT, is where ubi made their mistake. Instead of giving new players a chance, they should focus alot more on merely matching them with players of similar skill, it worked with Halo 2, so thereââ‚¬™s no reason for it not to work now. No need to get "tutored" by other players or anything like that.
Chaos Theory and Pandora Tomorrow had endless room for expansion of your personal skills, this has been significantly shrunk for Double Agent. Hopefully though, with an October delay, Ubi has more of a chance to think about some of the features they are putting into the game, especially the proxy.
Nothing against ubi employees here like smith, Rhoulette etc, Just my two cents presented to you in a 376 word "waste of your time".
