Is it just me or did it look rather dissapointing so far? The few armor pieces they've showed us was just the ones we had but with some more spikes added to them. I really was hoping for some new designs. I hope the ones from the characters we haven't seen yet are a bit more promising.

What do you guys think of the new armors they've showed so far? (not the dlc characters).

Yea I have. The weapons were new but the armors where just the same stuff with a small change.

well I guess all we can do is hope the others are more impressive. I just dont't really understand ubi's obsession with spikes. Like for the most part they just look ridiculous and I personally am not a fan at all.

Same thing. The weapons are also very fat and clunky again. Just like the special weapons. I was hoping for some more functional looking weapons and armor. There is so much viarity with knight armor and all they do is use the same piece three times and add spikes or other things that stick out.

Customization has always been pretty poopy in this game. The armor pieces don't really change how you look, and there's not enough to really separate you from anyone else. The ornaments, the most unique pieces of appereal, are pretty stale too, depending on the class. Shugoki gets all of the best ornaments, but the way they rest on his helmet makes them look dumb.

Are the old looks still available? I still prefer default gear apoearance for my character. Even at 108 I'm using default styles.

It's still available, but we hoped for new skins which is not the case ;b

Also, what do you like about your favorite styles (from what we've released), what would you like to see more of, what peeves you the most?
I'd like to get your ideas for what would be good and pass your feedback back over to the creative team for future reference.

Honestly, don't get your hopes up. This game has been tasked with a skeleton crew for development post-launch, that much is clear.. It was probably Ubisoft's intent all along, but losing 70 percent of the player base in the first month certainly didn't help matters. That is why it takes them so long to squish bugs. Just look at the content they put out, the majority of it is ornaments, which aren't really that creative or even interesting for the most part. The outfits were probably made some time ago, and they've been slowly unlocking them. But let's be real, aside from a new ornament, the outfits aren't anything new or special either.

I for one would like to see larger variations in the choices. The whole point of customizing your character in the first place is to look, and stand out how you want to. I would love to see re-skins of some of the weapons, into other weapons of the same type. For example instead of the raider having a one sided ax, give him a 2 sided battle ax. Have a chest piece that allows him to wear leather armor instead of all of them keeping him shirtless. Every character needs more noticeable changes, The orochi and beserker literally all look the exact same, except some have some gold weapons. Let the berserker have a chain mail shirt, instead of a T-shirt, or even a no shirt option. We need more noticeable changes.

And for the love of god, allow us to use the neutral colors when we want. Best colors in the game aren't even used in almost every game type.

The story has a lot of nice armors. Why not start with releasing those as legendary armor? Like Holden Cross Lion Shoulderpads? Conqueror Skull Shoulderpads? Gudmundrs Helmet and shoulders? Etc etc etc.... Come on, you can do this better with armor designing then just adding some spikes and saying: Hey, this looks badass now with spikes. No. Totally not....

First off, Thank you for your reply! I, and I think a lot of other players like more realistic themed armor. I was actually surprised at how little of them were in the game. Ill also talk a bit about weapons as I believe they're suffering from the same issues. Keep in mind that I mean realistic themed, not historically accurate, as I understand this game is fiction and is in an alternative universe. I'll be including a lot of pictures for this one. Ill put the pictues in spoiler tags so the page won't get to big. Click on the image to make it bigger.

So, what am I talking about when I say "realistic": With this I mean armor that looks/ is functional and looks like it could have been used. So no huge edges and spikes that stick out like most armor in this game, or half naked/ wooden armor like some of the other characters. Shoulder plates for example should deflect the sword down off your arm, not get it to smack onto your shoulder and get stuck.

Since you all know how the characters look in this game you and the dev team can see for themselves what piece of gear would fit what character. But I will tell you what I think should be looked at for what character based on the armor they already have. I'll name each class. I looked up some armor that i think would fit in the game.

Warden
Warden looks like a mix between an early medieval knight/ crusader and a late medieval knight that wears plate. As you can see he wears a helmet such as a great helmet, chainmain and gamberson for the chest, a small plate for the chest (though, this can be full plate as well, most don't look all that bulky and would fit his model), plate shoulders and arms and plate on his lower leg.

As you can see they are generally slick without spikes, or other weird edges that stick out.

Conqueror
He looks like an early medieval knight. He wears mail armor with a tabard covering it, with plate shoulders, a shield and full faced helmets.

https://s7.postimg.org/68efl0yxz/67f90a7b6455c4a15fc1961a048d3034.jpg (https://postimg.org/image/68efl0yxz/)

Lawbringer
He seems to wear full plate, with a chestpiece that's made for jousting. Since he walks around in armor of which they said had no equal, he can wear late medieval plate. Again, no spikes and such things.

Peacekeeper
Her armor looks fine. It fits her assassin role.

Alright. The vikings. I find it quite odd that they mostly walk around in normal clothes, bare, or just leather. Scandinavian warriors/ viking also had mail and scale armor. They could use this in the game as well.

Raider
I know the bare chested in intended, but I'm sure people would love to have the option to also wear mail armor. This would fit with a good deal of his helmets. Also, give us the option to remove the horns completely. It's a bit to Hollywood if you ask me. As he doesn't really wear armor yet it's a bit hard to find pictures for it, but please look at the ones i post for the other vikings.

Valkyrie
I quite like her style. Got no suggestions.

Warlord
He seems to be wearing hardened leather, chainmail, a plated chest and a plated helmet. He's the best looking viking in my opinion. But got some gear that would suit him.

https://s7.postimg.org/3uxn6k3rb/slovansky_viking_valecnik_b.jpg (https://postimg.org/image/3uxn6k3rb/)

Beserker
The same as for the raider. An actual helmet would be be a nice option as shown in the pictures and some mail mixed with his leather armor.

Alright, I won't really go over all the samurai to much since their style isn't to bad. Just add some armor that isn't filled with spikes again, and give them iron/ scale armor as well to mix it up a bit. I do have some beautiful samurai armor pieces you can take a look at for inspiration. I like how samurai armor looks elegant, but it seems to lack in this game. I think it's mostly intentional but they could make it look less like scrap and more like functional armor. Also, the kensei shoulder pieces look really odd and floaty.

And lastly the weapons. What I really dislike is that all the high level weapons always turn gold, full of diamonds, and look like something you hang on your wall rather than something you fight with. Could we get some nice designes without all the gold? Weapons are beautiful they way they were intended, they don't need to be all shiny and expensive looking to be ''cool'. Just add some functional looking weapons but without the rust, cracks, tears etc. And not to fat and bulky looking. Tell the art team to look at some actually weapon smith stores for idea's, most are true pieces of art!

I'd actually like a berserker option with as little armor as possible. I know faces covered is a theme maybe just cloth or leather instead of the metal without all the dangly bits? I personally only use the gunteric chest and sherger arms. Very basic, very plain, the least "armored" looking options. To me, sherger arms is still too much. I don't know what to suggest in place of it though? Keep the sleeve change, ditch the pads?

I was hoping to see Sejuro's campaign ornament available. Maybe something for kensei similar to the demon ornaments on the orochi. And if at all possible, being able to add materials to ornaments would be much appreciated.

You've seen the "Improved Customizations in For Honor," right? They should keep variations in armor style just as variations (spikes, bumps, small design differences) changeable by players just like ornaments but for armors, and make and release completely different looking armor with their own variations. The team would need more resources, yes, but I think think less frequent armor updates in return for new armor (not just variations) would be welcomed by the commuunity as a whole.

Thanks!

Personally I had hoped to see in the armor what you would expect from an older style MMO in regards to armor tiers...a visual sense of progress. I think the fact that the gear doesn't generally like shiny and brand new is good, it all looks battleworn and there's stitches and tattered edges...but using the orochi as an example, I assumed you'd start with what they start out with, basic wooden and cloth armor and end up somewhere like what the Oni trailer shows, a bit more complexity, upgrade to chainmail etc. Going to nubs and then spikes too what, hooked spikes...I didn't really feel like it was progress. In that case it was annoying to me where you got a decently differently looking set in the Fujin, but the bottom half of the armor was the default hagane piece. Some characters progress a little better than others in this regard but overall I don't really feel like the armor gets cooler or more interesting...just marginally different, and in this kind of game, especially as stat difference is aiming to be de-emphasized, what am I chasing the higher tiered gear for?

Thanks for taking our feedback on board. I'm really not a fan of the gold, thick, chunky style of the new weapons. Theres just too much going on, and they look very impratical and sorta geared towards a young audience. Too chunky and not sharp enough to to slice through anything.

I would like to see sets that are just very different from one another, as opposed to trying to out-bling the tier before it if that makes sense. Like apollyon is amazing and the armor looks different. Helmet is iconic and original.

For Wardens I would like to see something like:
https://medieval-armour.com/images/stories/virtuemart/product/002_6_03_lrg.jpg
https://armstreet.com/catalogue/full/armet-knight-helmet.jpg

--Maybe some with a cape like apollyons on some armors.
--A set of prestine immaculate armor with less chainmail and more metal plate and less fabric.
--Would really love too see a set of a rusted worn crestfallen knight. Completely half shredded cape, shredded fabric in parts, shredded chainmail, heavily rusted and held together by some old strips of leather in parts.

In the future would love to see the ability to change different armor pieces to different unlocked colors, change ornament colors, change fabric colors like wardens fabric pants/ top undernrath the armor. Ability to put different playermade crests onto defferent parts of the player if possible.

Hey UbiNoty,
1. I would like to see also more armor customization. For exemple: vikings and samurais: I would really love their armor to be out of methal so i can apply the black steel color. their armor looks very bad : leather only.
2. Not on topic but still I will wanna see: A posibility to reset the orders with steel. I do the orders asap , circa 2 h , every time they are up. and then....i have to wait 48 hours. Also take away the class orders. I would like to decide myself on which toon i want to do those orders.
3. The Outfits (Elite or Mythic) Is all about the damm ornament and effects (Mythic outfits) : Most of the time the Ornaments or those effects are not enough to make me buy them. Its simply too poor design. I would like to see armor or/and weapon design included in those outfits. Or add them seperatly....BUT PLEASE ADD ARMOR or/and WEAPONS design. Pretty please.
4. I know that Up tomorrow you gone add +25% more exp for free for all of us, BUT still i would love to buy a time based item (+25% exp for 1h as exemple).
5. Also please pass along to the dev team : do something about the rage quiters. I dont care if they dont wanna loose, BUT when 1 person decided to leave , He knows he may proke a Match Crash ON 7 PLAYERS. ADD a penaty like: loose the match + no rewards for the next 1 or 2 matches. I am not a friend of banns as It doesnt help Ubisoft nor the player. I am not playing in PvMP mode anymore as the chance of getting the match to crash is too high and its a waste of time. BUT now players started to leave even vs AI games. Its getting out of hand.
6. I love then way you guys done the last 3 warriors den. great job on that one and I like Eric Pope īs (i hope i spelled it right) contribution in the dens. I like to see: Roman as a dev understanding each fancy question and I like the way he answers the questions (he doesnt make me false hopes ). Damien and Emile also good job in all this dens.
Please UbiNoty pass along my feedback to the dev team, whenever you find the time. Thanks in advance.

Now not only for the dev team feedback:
If you people wanna scream at this feedback with the most faimos word: PAY2WIN , then please ask yourserf this first:
1. do you really like/love this game?
2. do you honestly think they can pay the bills with : "love" or "great job devs" ?
So, if there are customers like me, which could or wanna spend more money in the game, that will help us all : the community and Ubisoft.
We, as the community (the ones which spend more money or the ones which dont spend a cent or very little) we need eachother. I dont wanna miss a singel player regardless if he spends money or not. The more we are the better it is to get a match together.
I also need to add: I DONīT wanna see damage, morale or defence time base buffs from shop. I ONLY would love to see + xx% exp for 1h or + xx% steel for 1h as time based items.

Thanks very much for reading and thanks very much to everbody @ Ubisoft (not only the ones we get to see for the camera).

Since what they dare call "outfits" are actually just overpriced simple color patterns with "ornaments" which are just accessories for helmet only (so not even real costumes that actually change your character look), did you really expected more ?
Are there really people who paid actual money for these color patterns (which are ugly by the way) ? Really ?

You know it's really disappointing to see that one of the two armor sets they showed is practically the same just with spikes. I was so excited saving crates for Kensei, to renew his look and I'm still spending them in him but unless the second set is different then the whole thing of two new armor sets is basically a lie.

Hey, thanks for getting involved and trying to pass our feedback on to the creative team.

The one thing that I would like to see added that would help differentiate the look between players is lower body customization. Right now, we can only affect the waist and above, so all of our characters end up looking the same no matter what. A Prestige 30 Conqueror will have the same ratty blue pants and brown boots as a Prestige 0 Conqueror. It kind of ruins the entire customization aspect of the game.

Howerver, I see that with the Centurion and Shinobi, that is not the case. They each have four different leg/foot armors. Are the old classes going to get the same love at some point?

Thanks.
