So im really curious to see if the devs are going to admit the faction war is rigged on the warriors den or if they are going to keep lying about it.

At this point the proof is undeniable, and people have been accurately predicting the winner well before the seasons have even started lol

Mr Reavyne is a perfect example, he as predicted all the winners before the seasons have even begun:

I really do hope the devs can just admit to it being rigged so we can all move on in year 2...because its really cringy watching them try to laugh it off every warriors den :/

Please elaborate on how the proof is undeniable? If this pattern had occurred 3 times in a row, i.e, Vikings win, Samurai win, Knights win, Vikings win, Samurai win, Knights win, Vikings win, Samurai win, Knights win. I may share your suspicions. But it's only been 4 seasons.

I keep an open mind, but I don't really buy into this stuff. Nobody really takes the faction war that seriously anyway, the player base is quite small now and the Dev's have made a lot of risque decisions with regards to new classes and changes to the game.

I honestly don't see that they'd have that much to gain or lose by making it so factions take it in turns to win.

I lost most interest in the Faction War after Season 1, but I do try to keep up to date with it as much as possible. And I've seen far more evidence of it being rigged, or just really faulty, than I have of it not being so.

I recall seeing several statistical discrepancies between For Honor's media outlets. A blog gave one percentage of assets deployed, the Warrior's Den another.

We haven't ever been shown, or told how the underlying systems of the Faction War actually work, so we don't know how the game assigns values to the assets compared to each Faction's total members.

The vague, and by now annoying answers the devs give on the Den about "oh its so not rigged 'cause we told you so". They always only ever tell us it isn't rigged, they never show us how it isn't rigged.

Of course the rotation of winners is the biggest clue people latch onto, and the tin-foil hat crowd takes this further by taking into account that whoever won a season also just happened to be the faction that didn't receive a new hero the following season.

Youtubers like Reavyne has done more to highlight possible rigging, than the developers have to prove it isn't.

For me, It's all of these factors combined, along with the sloppy rewards system, that make me think It's either rigged, or bugged in a serious way. And that makes me really not care about it at all, and the developers don't seem to care that we don't care.
But eh, who cares?

If it was rigged it wouldn't be decided who wins now before all rounds have played out.

Metastopholis
01-10-2018, 05:29 PM
so some people are asking how its undeniable, and the answer is pretty simple.

People have literally predicted all of the winners months before the seasons have even begun...not only that but every single prediction has come true, there is a clear predictable pattern that has been 100% correct so far.

This is one of those things that you will either see whats right in front of your face and believe what your seeing...or you will just ignore all facts because you don't want it to be true.

I genuinely think first 3 seasons were rigged, 4th may be just a coincidence.

Reason is clear. Every season winner was the faction who would not receive new Heroes at incoming DLC.

The odds of that happening if things were left to pure randomness (since there is literally 0 cooperation on playerbase in terms of forming a collaborated unity to dictate any result); the odds is 1/27 that is way too low of an odd to be foreseen long before seasons started, yet this was predicted successfully months ahead.


Personally I think faction wars is totally unnecessary gimmick I could not care any less, rigged or not. If it would mean that I would get rid of the stupid animation on main menu everytime it opens, I would remove faction war from game in the blink of an eye, it is that pointless for me. Yet even for me it is quite clear that from marketing and PR purposes faction war was rigged.

Did someone really predict it this way, before all even started:
Vikings will win the first round, Samurai will win season 2, and Kinghts will win season 3?

For the third season, if you're looking at it purely mathematically: The chances of vikings winning all rounds was 1/27. Same for Knights. Same for Samurai. The chances of all the factions winning once in a different order is also 1/27. So it's all the same. 1/27 isn't even particularly low odds.

So last day of campaign.. 3 hours left.. 1 zone with 7 million on vikings rest of it 1 million plus.... in less then 3 HOURS.. on average a game gives (let's be generous here) 1200 assets, and on average a game takes about 10 to 15 min to complete(talk about dominion here for both).. that mean.. 5833 games for 7 millions, just for 1 single zone..so either the game population just grow up exponentially in the last 3 hours.. or all this faction war is rigged..

I'll admit this does seem like a lot. Usually when we're on the offensive we'll have lots of territories in the hundreds of thousands and maybe one or two 1 million plus. Usually in the middle of the map above the volcano as we try and work our way down. Can't say i've ever seen a territory with 7 million on it I don't think...

Of course every scenario is 1/27, I absolutely have no idea what you are going at with it apart from proving you have basic math knowledge??

Thing is that every season winner being the faction who wouldn't get a DLC hero is 1/27. And this is what people predicted the case to be and it ended up to be. 1/27 is 3.7% chance.

Considering there was only one conspiracy theory and left to random odds it coming out being %3.7, I am quite inclined to believe that it indeed was rigged. Especially since how much it fits PR stunt mentality you would expect from a company.

Not that it matters, it is completely pointless anyway, faction war is a Warrior's Den cyclejerk event nothing more.

This is how statistics work. Given that there are only 27 combinations, and thousands of people predicting, obviously some of them will get it right. Just like in any sports league, there are tens of teams, everybody bets their favourite for winner, and someone will guess right, but no one will blame them for rigging because someone guessed right.

But did they predict it before anything even happened? Because that is what you are implying.
Or was it more like: The first season was won by Vikings, and Knights and Samurai then got their heroes. Some people then went like "I bet the next 2 seasons, the other 2 factions will win".
Which would be a 22% chance.

2) the losers got the dlc characters..... so what? Explain the connection please.

The 'losers' didnt get new characters, EVERYONE did. Again this is not evidence of anything, you are making connections in your head.

I am not exactly sure, but I think it started with the post (not this forums) from someone claiming to be an ex-ubi employee saying that all content for the rest of the year being completely ready before release, but cut out to be DLC. He named and described each Hero that would be released including the order they would be released. This was before first Faction War results. By the way his claims for heroes turned out to be %100 accurate with the only exception of names of heroes in season 4 (shaman instead of huntress for dual wield axe/blade character, and Aramusha instead of Ronin for dual blade samurai).

Those early claims started the possibility of Ubisoft rigging the Faction War to make it a cycle, where every season the faction who would not receive new heroes would win the season. And it turned out that way.

By the way even if it were after first season, odd still would not be 22%. It means they would predict Samurai win next, and Knight win last. This is 1/9 which is %11. It is not a combination calculation it is a permutation so order effects odds.

For the people saying thousands of people making guesses some being right. There were no other conspiracy theories towards faction war or any other guesses. The only claims were that it would cycle in the order of not receiving DLC heroes.

You think it is thin foil hat? Ok, who cares. I mean I genuinely believe it is rigged and even I don not care in the slightest. But if you think a business would not rig a stats in a meaningless minigame they are hellbent of trying to make it a face for the game for PR stunt, you are way too naÔve.

It is 11% if the order matters. My example was about someone saying "I predict the two other factions will win next".

Where is this post about this Ubi guy who said that those will be the new heroes? Anyone else know about this?

Malyngo
01-12-2018, 09:01 AM
Uhm also, sure, the heroes most likely were known to Ubi at release, as they stated it takes a lot of time to create those.

So yeah, the point of "The odds of the release of the heroes and the winner of the season not getting one is a 1:26 chance" is a valid one.

But for me, this is rather very lucky coincidence than rigged. What I ask myself in every conspiracy theory is this: Who has what to gain?
I don't really see what Ubi has to gain by rigging the faction war, but they quite a bit to lose if they are found out. To me, that would be stupid to do. But I'd be convinced if there was more evidence.

01-12-2018, 01:08 PM
So to clear up some of the misinformation. No the guy was not a former ubisoft employee. He was a statistics major in college and does marketing if I remember correctly? Not really important, but he wasn't connected with ubisoft. Second is he posted his findings on both the comparative Reddit and here both during season two after the win. The post I read said he had put one more before that one I think? Regardless, this idea hit the collective forum and that started the very obvious and provable defecting of players from faction to faction during the off season, where the bulk of the "try hards" would follow the path set out for them by this wild conspiracy theory.
So when you guys say,
"oh the proof is right there, he called his predicting and it happened."
The rest of us with even a slight bit of rational thought think, "this is less a conspiracy and more of a self fulfilling prophecy."
If you want these ideas to hold more water in the eyes of the public, you need to exercise discretion. First you publish your findings privately. I.E. Write them up into a document and mail it to yourself. This puts the real world equivalent of a timestamp on it, as well as sealing it so as to ensure there is no tampering. Then you wait for the results. QUIETLY. The reason for this is so that you are certain your observation and hypothesis do not effect the outcome. Then you are free to make your findings public, as you will have a better idea as to if your prediction was viable, or just used as click/troll bait to wind up an already volatile player base.

They manually deploy assetts the least so they're sprinkled everywhere which doesn't help. And the ones that do deploy, deploy at the volcano

Also, the Vikings also won the last faction rally. So it doesn't seem that the knights truly are the most active faction.theyre about tied with vikings. so it comes down to who deploys the most, which is the vikings. which means that vikings care about the faction war and are more active about winning so they deserve to win and the rest deserve to lose. The knights and samurai should never have won any faction wars to be honest when Vikings deploy more than both of them every season consistently. The faction that actually plays the faction war should win the faction war... I don't see the issue here.

It's hard to care about the Faction War when every game crashes randomly despite your Green NAT so you can't deploy assets hell can't even take 5 steps before the game trips on its own feet (Just went through 7 dominions matches and had 6 instantly crash as soon as i take a step). I've lost so many asests due to stuff like this that I don't care about the War I just want to play the ****ing game.

So we're on this stuff again? Okay.

Seasons 1-3 were rigged based on who is not receiving content next season. Vikings won, Centurion and Shinobi came out. Samurai won, Highlander and Gladiator came out. Knights won undisputedly because the cat was out of the bag at that point, Shaman and Aramusha came out.

Now, due to no new content coming out and the initial roster being reworked, Ubi is letting the lopsided Faction War play out as it should have in the first place.

Vikings win again because of the population bonus applied to their smaller faction. Samurai have the highest population, therefore get less assets per match per player. However, Samurai has less active players compared to Vikings so were making a lot less than we should.

The population bonus will ensure the Vikings win every war, every season until Ubisoft addresses this.

At that time, the plan was "place all assets to defend these tiles regardless if they're in the millions." While these plans can't reach the entire viking playerbase, it reaches enough. So, kinda, yeah. As a faction, vikings collectively decided to do that.

There is no diversity here. It has never been diverse. This whole mechanic is screwed up. Screwed up from the start, and is still screwed up now. I'm telling you now that the Vikings will win every season until the population bonus is reworked to only count active player base within a certain time limit. Maybe Ubi should disable the bonus for one season to see how the Vikings truly fair against the Knights and Samurai.

Damn I'm late XD.

But anyway I've been seeing everyone who is on the side of RAEVYN GAMING talking about the proof he has been stating since he has become paranoid about his ''CONSPIRACY''(WHICH HE OVERUSED FOR VIEWS OBVIOUSLY).
He talks about predicting which FACTION will win using his ''PROOF'' which isn't proof he was just bluffing.

He said that VIKINGS won 1st season because they didn't get a character, SAMURAI won 2nd season since they didn't get their character and KNIGHTS 3rd season
which he said the same for them.

One thing he fails miserably to realise is that they make multiple characters before the end of each season this was proven with the leak of HIGHLANDER before the end of SEASON 2 here is the video of the highlander leak https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBvDoSJoKh8.

And the worst thing is that he makes like 10 videos about one thing which is pathetic and of course in his comment section is a war going on about who is RIGHT / WRONG.
He makes profit out of his little scheme and even if he is right about it being ''RIGGED' what is going to do him that any good.

It's THESE KIND OF PEOPLE that SEPERATE THE COMMUNITY OF ''HARDCORE,MEME-LOVING GROUP OF NICE PEOPLE'' with their little ''FACTS and ''PROOF''.
It doesn't even matter if it's rigged what matters is that people should not immediately believe a youtuber who ''PREDICTS'' and thinks he is right about something without actually proving what he means (ACTUAL PROOF I MEAN).

This conspiracy should not even matter anymore in FOR HONOR since the playerbase is increasing and gettting more updates, fixes, additional content, ect...

AND RAEVYN GAMING NEEDS TO GET HIS FACTS STRAIGHT AND STOP USING PEOPLE AS PROFIT FOR USELESS CONSPIRACYS SUCH AS THIS ONE.

Well I don't know how Knights were leading with 40 zones whilst the other two factions were around 20 first 2 days but now are cornered on 14 :D looks really wierd to me aswell since I am meeting 90% of the players who chose Knights faction , it is so rarely to see a samurai faction player and it is pretty much 3 knights 1 viking or 4 knights most of the time.

Well, I saw Vikings again win Faction Wars.=)

I really can't see the point of Faction Wars now. We have 7 seasons right now. Samurais and Knights have one victory in their pocket. So, Vikings won FW 5 times! So, they dominate this thing more than a year.
Even if this not some bug or manipulation, it's enough wierd to devs to do something. Or they just don't care? Or wait while every player switched to Vikings?

Vikings are clearly superior. All you Samurai and Knights May as wel quit and acknowledge us as your masters.

I dont even think the devs care its so poorly designed and balanced it's beyond a joke.

At least, knights proud enough to not be disrespectful for others when win cause of broken system. ^_^
And still we won most of faction events, so...in your logic Vikings and Samurai just have to stop trying to win it.

I really would like to know what the hell happens there in the last phases. These kind of super sweeps you guys pull off (both knights and samurai pushed back to 17 and 20 like 24 hours before the end) and holds afterwards are abnormous. Is there a chance of farming bots being involved or sth? :P

I won't put money on it, but I don't think there's any foul-play going on. My question is though, if there was, if the faction war is actually rigged somehow...what's the incentive? Just seems like another conspiracy theory if you ask me.

Conspiracy logic: "I didn't get the thing, therefore conspirators are conspiring against me!"
Actual logic: You're not that important.

i'm samurai. i'm not trying to win. It's just impossible to quit this minigame without quitting FH itself. it's like an ugly, rude neighbor we have to tolerate.
These last phase push backs of the Vikings smells fishy, though. Are they all up at the same time? what, this is a global coalition or something? if so, color me impressed.

But we definitely found out the answer. Faction Wars are not rigged. If devs have any control on it they would even try to change winner from season to season.
But vikings win again and again and we all know now, that FW are not rigged, it's broken.=P

I actually recently switched over to Viking just with the off season starting. I've been a knight since day 1 and was always sorta holding hope that the Vultcano meme would die, but the Knights tend to end up throwing for it. I noticed in the most recent faction event that I was ranked in the 24ks for the Knights, and the 46ks for the Vikings. I'm not saying that Knights have less or more people, but it seems that the Vikings are at least more active in the events at the least.

there're apparently no logical gain to affect the FW. However, if being childish is logical, we wouldn't find bratty kids so infuriating and confusing. and yes, we have all been there, was that.
I'm not saying it's rigged anymore. tbh, when the result flashed this morning, I didn't feel anything.

Does the Faction war really even matter?

When all the characters can fight for whom ever they wish, whatís the point of having factions.

And donít give me the lame reason that was presented at the end of the campaign. Talk about a bunch of nonsense.

They should either get rid of the faction war all together or make it so only the faction your with get the rewards for winning. Give people some iincentive to actually try and win.

What about the rewards tho ? 2 months of faction war or more for a 500 steel cache :D seems a bit like a joke to me.

Well, remove 66% of character from player it's not right.=)
But I like the idea my friend had. He said a week after launch, that make people think about faction you should limited somehow the heros. He offered to make your faction hero cost 500 steel. And heros not from your faction cost 15k steel, like DLC heros.

Simply all heroes that aren't in your faction should give you less assets to deploy after each game. This would be fair.
