It's gonna be a make it or break it for me this weekend. I'm about to retire this game for good and save myself the aggravation and frustration I feel from something that isn't fun to play anymore. Hopefully it makes a world of difference, but I think the mechanics are broken to the core and it won't help anything but random disconnects.

I hope it works out too. We need to retain and gain new players, not lose them. :(

Keep in mind this is their first public stress test. There are bound to be hiccups and that's the point of a test after all, to find as many issues as possible now rather than at the first minute of the full release. Me personally I reserve my make it or break it decisions for the last test before release, not the first.

I am intrigued to see what exactly the difference will be when playing on dedicated servers and what exactly we are meant to report back to the devs apart from participating in the stress test. For example, should we be expecting absolutely no connection drops during matches?

I love seeing people post things like "these mechanics are broken." First off, define mechanics as used in reference to game design, then second explain to me how you think the core of this is broken?

Is it once again PC only, or can console players try this too this time?

And do we have to download it again?

I think it's for all consoles. I'm in agreement with Vakris. This is a test and will not be smooth ride. We will need to nit-pick every dropped player, lag glitches, and load times. So pretty much what most of the forum does already. Having said that, let's do what we do. Put the test servers on a treadmill, crank the dial to 11 and play the hell out of it. Then come to the forum and give them our opinions.

Notice how he fails to address anything relevant to my post or find a logical means of arguing?
Nope, he'd much rather resort to name calling than discuss a problem.
And just so you are aware, I don't have to "try" anything. I use logic, reason and critical, sometimes unorthodox thinking to find viable solutions to my problems, as opposed to just whining till someone hands me an easy button.
But I digress, I'm simply asking for someone to explain to me what mechanics are broken, and what version of this game you are playing that seems such an unresponsive, unfinished, untested, barely playable and hardly passable as anything near complete enough for a major release? Because every time I've seen the words "mechanics" and broken" in the same post, I shut down, you've lost credibility completely because you've proven you have no clue what you are talking about.
Now if you did, you would know what a mechanic actually is, how it relates to gaming jargon, and that the core mechanics of this title function as intended. Networking aside, there are very little issues outside of a grossly vocal minority of players that have these wild and outlandish problems, with little to no evidence to back up their claims.
But go on, tell me more about how pretty I look in my armor.

Got it, so you essentially have nothing beneficial to add to anything. Good to know. That was my bad for assuming you were of a mind to actually try and discuss things like a rational adult. I'll leave you to argue with the other kiddies.

You know, the idea strikes me that if the world were to donate a copy of For Honor to Kim Jong Un then global politics could be hashed out in in-game fights. Or perhaps it's a terrible idea and will make North Korea press the Nuclear button after the penultimate ledging by a Raider :p

I'll ask that you both remain on topic if you continue to post in this thread. If there is something between the two of you that needs to be hashed out, I suggest you both take it to private messages.
