Love it. Great job on this mode. It is a fantastic mix of emphasis on free running (IE rushing to targets to prevent them from scoring, or rushing to the chest), and stealth (IE not being detected around the chest, or stealthing near it to defend it)

couple of questions.

How many chests are their at any 1 time?
How do you know where the chests are located?
Whats it like on the other maps?
Do pursuers wait for the hunters or go after them?

3 chests at a time.

People going after the chests can always see them (there is a UI marker indicating their location). People defending the chests I think can only see the UI marker when the chest is in their line of sight, or a teammate's line of sight

The new map is pretty cool. Only played one round in it but it feels like 1 player Rome - as in, more "open".

Pursuers stop their targets (ideally) before they get to their chests. The best way to win is to kill your targets quickly and efficiently, before they can grab any chests.

Stealth kills are still better, but you do want to get to your target or a chest location ASAP.

In the MP Menu, scroll all the way to the left/bottom to Options then it is under Downloadable Content. Let's you switch to Animus Update 1.0 or 2.0

And yes, MSM is dreadful, so I will be keeping 2.0 thank you very much.

@W.E.S.P:

Yeah, I agree about that. It was all over the place, but I found it a fun and refreshing change of pace. It's very difficult to find the Hunters what with the compass freaking out and whatnot.

Disguise is the single most effective Ability though!

Maybe TV would be more useful? But with the long cool-down, maybe not?

In any case: This is a very fun game!

And I'm glad MSM is disabled while Pienza is active: Imagine Chest Capture on MSM.

I agree. I hated my first match, mainly b/c I was playing with randos and every runs around like idiots. It was a little better playing with friends that could get coordinated, but I'm still not too sure if I liked it all that much. It definitely isn't as stealthy...

Chest is somewhat.... new and strange. It's true that there's a lot of running but that's not my concern (everyone playing a lot knows by now that you have to balance running and stealth, otherwise you'll never get any kills), it's more the last chest part where it's a bit too much of confrontation... What's the fun in trying to get a chest when there's 4 protectors around it and that their kill button functions much better than the stun one? Abilities will help but I find it not as satisfying as Wanted and a less stealthy Manhunt.

I also hated MSMichel at first but kicked *** so often on it lately that I love it! It's big but I try to get everyone to the plaza in the front of the church where a guy is screaming "news". Yes, chest would be crappy on that map though but I really hope that we don't really need to disable a DLC or the other to play the different maps...

Got it today, profiles got reset agaain but no biggy given the last 2 days. Chest seems pretty good, maybe a little too fast-paced (especially on Player matches with randoms) but I certainly like the idea.

I agree with Krankit, maybe the respawns of the chests should be on a timer linked to each chest rather than when all 3 are captured. Think I need to rejig a few profile sets to get into it. Not had the chance to play Pienza yet but looking forward to it.

Pienza is an excellent map. A central undercover marketplace, perfect for sneaky morphing, or ariel templar vision alike. Lots of covered areas, and loads of high rolling leaping areas too. It's one of my faves. Shame you can't play St Vincent or whatever its called at the same session though..

This game type made me start to think that in team games it would be nice if when you stunned an attacker they were forced to respawn. Reason being if you stun two + the original can get up and kill you. When you are in a confined area waiting for the chest to capture this is a real problem. I also think this would be good on the other gametypes. It would really force attackers to be a bit more cautious also.

GibsonD90
01-19-2011, 02:32 PM
I enjoy the game mode thus far, but I feel like it does need some tweaking. I feel like the killing is too easy for the players defending the chests. Maybe it's because everyone just runs to the chest. Maybe points should still be given for blending, so one could blend their way to the chest.

The thing that really really messes me up is the compass going bat-crap insane when the defender is near a chest. I can get 3000+ points easy going after chests, but only end the game with like... 4100 points.

Maybe I don't play Advanced Wanted enough?

Grygier
01-19-2011, 03:23 PM
it's not bad. It's a pure runners mode once i realized that I started to get the hang of it and began being useful.

shame that with every DLC the game caters to free running and losses stealth.

oh well no point of complaining... i've give it time see if it grows on me.

DannyStrong
01-19-2011, 03:43 PM
I like how the new game mode makes you use a different set of abilities. Abilities like disguise aren't so useful in manhunt or wanted, but it's perfect for this mode (btw, a "long disguise" is about the perfect time for an entire chest capture timer if you can move in quietly).

The only thing I think they should change, is that you should be desynched if you get stunned in chest capture mode. This is particularly a problem when there is only one chest left and all 4 protectors are defending the area. It's just impossible to get a leg in for more than a few seconds, and the number of points that chest will give you isn't really worth the risk of death. In fact if youre winning I think it'd ever be a better idea to hide from the protectors than to continue getting chests.

I'd have to disagree, though there is still a lot of running you can still use stealth tactics. If it were a pure runners game you wouldn't be able to steal chests as you have to stand in it's radius for a certain amount of time to capture it. If everyone was running then no chests would be captured.

My playstyle relies a lot on stealth to score big and I haven't found the need to be constantly running while playing

I've only played one game of chest capture so far so I'm not going to pass judgement just yet but my first opinions wherent great.

It seemed a little fast paced for me I was Enjoying the defense round when I could move at my own pace. But when attacking every time I slowed down I got rushed by the enemy team or reached a chest just to see it disapear.

I would call it a game of urgency, not just "running" Stealthing efficiently and moving quickly. Making the absolute most of your time.



To the above poster - I feel rushed on both sides of the fence, I am not relaxed when defending the chests, lol. I am running around looking for their location usually and then hang out by it while blending.

I couldent relax they kept coming straight to me lol.

What I meant was other than the times I wasnt near the chest or I got stunned I didnt have to go any faster than fast walk Which is exactly how I like it. When attcking however Once I knew where the defenders where I headed to the furthest away chest then I'd see one tailing me and if I went for a stun I'd have to run before he got back up or his freinds showed up.

If I didnt go for the stun I'd reach the chest and have to carry on going or give myself away and usually get killed.

Tbh I prefer wanted to team modes anyway.

I have to disagree with this as well. I've played a good few chest capture games now and I can say that pure runners lose in that game type for much the same reason they lose in other game types.

For example, one thing that people don't seem to realize is that even though as the protectors you're trying to defend the chests and all, you're still trying to score points yourself. Quality of kills still matters in chest capture. And I think thats where the real skill comes in, if you can run to get in position but still pull off a hidden + incognito kill.

If you have a team communicating I feel like this is the best mode. What makes it special is if you can discover a chest before it is captured and get your team there to defend it. Honestly I think that part of it is so fun it should really be more focused on that instead of a modified manhunt. Why not make it so defenders know where the chest is but if they get stunned they have to respawn. The attack and defense portion of this is really the best part.

i neat tactic...

If you see a teammate near the chest get some high ground and away from the desynchronization most people run towards the chest so you can spot them easily and lock on.
this way even if he uses disguise or blends he is a goner.

I think they boosted the aerial range kills.. has anyone noticed this?.. or am i going crazy?

I have to agree with ya there- Its nice for something different, but still prefer wanted over team modes. I don't like how u can stun your pursuer but then u gotta run away or else they can just get up again and kill u. Also don't like how your whole team has to be the same templar so your target can pick u out pretty easily.
