Why is this allowed to happen?

I did a co op mission called 'Ancient History' or something where you get 25,000 for completion and an extra 45,000 if you do it without any alerts. So I spent 30 minutes on this and was getting about 68,000 in coinage . . .found the right chest. . .got the money and was 'escaping the area'.

Killed 3 guards and was about to run through the window and escape the area - suddenly the world collapses. I get booted outside the mission , lost all the money etc.

The reason I got booted out?

For a message which read 'The connection to ubisoft servers have been established."

WHY DO I CARE ABOUT THE CONNECTION BEING ESTABLISHED!? HOW DARE THEY CANCEL EVERYTHING I DID FOR 30 MINS TO TELL ME SUCH A MUNDANE MESSAGE!?

What a massive pointless waste of my time, and my life.

It's annoyed me so much I'm on this stupid forum writing a message which no one from ubisoft will even bother reading.

The best thing about it was that I wasn't playing co op. . .I was playing PRIVATELY. . .so there wasn't even any need for any stupid servers!!

Disgusted.

If it's 5 star and he did it all himself 30 mins is impressive.

I really don't like Heist missions. Just guards everywhere and you can't move an inch.

it belongs in a museum is 5 stars and i complete it in 2-5 min regularly.

but i guess it depends on how well equipped you are.

also that mission i specified has an exploit so...

still, 30 minutes would drive me insane

And they'll detect you even if it's technically impossible.

Heists become insanely easy if you have the legendary military brace

12 phantom blades = easy win

its the only non-phantom legendary gear i wear

I know it might sound like I'm whining bc I'm not good enough...

But I played SC: Blacklist on Perfectionist and when I was detected it never felt cheap or unfair. Unity's detection system and guard distribution (especially snipers) are a mess. The game just feel so clumsy sometimes. Whereas on SC or Far Cry, everything is smooth and slick while still retaining a challenge.

I dunno, I can't fully describe it. Maybe I'm just crap but Unity's stealth feels unrefined if that's the right word.

I never actually had a problem with detection.

Weird.

And I'm terrible at stealth in games like Dishonored.

Funny, I can breeze through Dishonored without any trouble but can easily fail the beginning of Catacomb raider which is supposed to be an easy heist in Unity

For me the alert system is one of Unity's biggest problems, especially in heists. I would understand that guards are on call in heists more than in free roam but often it's ridiculous. I'm in a room which has walls to all sides, yet when I alert one guard, 20 ! pop up and guards from the other side of the building on a different floor (this is no joke!) start chasing me.

Speaking of the devil... I just played a Heist mission when this happened. You can clearly see, the guards attacking me in the end are clearly on a different floor first. In my logic, there's no way the would be alerted by what's going on.

Says the video is private, however I do know exactly what you're talking about. Happens fairly often in Heists & co-op missions.

Cheers. :) You showcased the reason I stopped using Berserk darts. For some reason it alerts everyone in the near vicinity. Plus if you get spotted, it just exacerbates the situation. Only time I use them is to take out an enemy by hitting them with 2.
