    Changes in scoring for some Multiplayer modes_

    Hey all,

    The team made some changes to some of the Multiplayer modes of Watch_Dogs and wants to let you know about them. The goal of these changes is to encourage players to finish the hacking session without disconnecting, without incurring a penalty.

    From now on, the victim of a hacking invasion will never lose Notoriety, even if they fail to find the hacker.

    In addition, players losing a ctOS Mobile Challenge will never lose Notoriety. As long as they have passed a few checkpoints, they will gain Notoriety, even if they lose the match.

    Now, no one will have a reason to quit a match before it’s finished.

    Feel free to send us questions and comments in this thread and I’ll try and answer them.

    Thanks, and keep on hacking!

    Nik

    That for sure solves the quitters problem. And also being accidentally hacked while paused when player doesn't notice pause didn't stop the time in game when some one invaded him. Thanks.

    How about no penalty for aborting the contract - in let's say about 30 seconds after invading - in online tailing (mainly) and hacking if the invaded player is camping for the invader and immediately forces the game to show the hacker area circle which equals to "being aware of the invader" so you lose notoriety if you decide to abort? I mentioned it in different thread just about today: http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php...onsense-Forums

    Good idea.

    Here are S multiplayer design issues that seriously need fixing, these issues ruin the multiplayer experience for both new and veteran players. Please share them with the team.

    1) The spawn system in multiplayer (applies ANYWHERE in the city):

    2) Invaders spawning on bikes when the victim is on one:

    The only thing that worries me about this approach is players getting invaded just ignoring the fact they are getting hacked now and just not trying to find the invader.

    Was it just not possible to change it so that if a player loses connection, they automatically lose?

    But why should they do that? It's not the players fault if they lose connection.


    It's more important to make a good game than one that stays true to the original formula.
