Dont know if this has been said before but why can't we get like a hardcore mode/modes on here? You know like assassinate without any help. No indicator when you lock someone no stun prompt ect. Advanced wanted on ACB on was the closet Ive seen but no one ever played it. I can see if when my pursuer exposes me I drop straight to reckless cause he made me so I ain't sneaky anymore but telling someone who has no idea who Iam that I locked him defeats stealth

assassinate or wanted without any help.....isn't that death match?


And the fact the lock drops you right to reckless is perfect. No more idiot attempt to get close and getting a discreet kill. I don't play assassinate very much. But even with that lock reducing kills i still get incognito and even hidden kills in the game mode.

instead of walking right at them try blending in around them. Makes you much much harder to find.

And yes if you run right near them then try and blend they will know who you are. you are not being sealthy enough to avoid the lock on.

I would actually like to see a simple Assassinate. Then we would see how good people really are without using abilities, perks, or streaks to help them out.

Stunlocking in ACB was cheap, easy and skilless.

At least in ACR it takes some thinking and "stealth" to do.

I enjoy some simple deathmatch I must admit. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I say they bring on a game mode with a full map, NO portraits, NO radar, NO abilities...

It's just you...and square...

or whatever xbox users usehttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

A hardcore mode...hmmm...How about any mode you choose but no abilities, perks or streaks. Any mode, Purist style!

We use the X button, because we Xecute our Targets (terrible pun, I know, but I had to)

Yeah that's what "simple" is. I agree that they should extend it to all game modes.

^ Exactly. Those who love stunlocking so much should go back to ACB and steer clear of ACR. I just could never understand why people who stunlocked people for 10 minutes claimed they were the greatest players out there, while they actually always finished last when they were facing people who didn't allow them to stunlock. I for one had loads of fun shooting stunlockers from a distance and see them quit in rage.

On-topic: that's why I love Simple Deathmatch. I use it to prepare myself for the moments that I'm without abilities. Having a Simple variant of all game modes would be great as well.

Sadly, knowing Ubisoft's track record, it'll never happen, but we can dream at least

I think the Assassinate you described would be silly to not have a compass...it would be a camp-fest...

It might be a camp fest for noobs but not people who are looking for points. I see this (mostly from noobs) happening now on assassinate where they will just camp in a blend crowd and wait..which won't net you much of a score just waiting as someone like me will always be on the move.

This is the advanced version of Assassinate & nobody played the advanced versions in ACB, why would they play them in the inferior game ACR?

Advanced Wanted was the only one I saw..I could never find anyone playing it though. Deathmatch ain't bad but it still holds your hand. It tells you when your being pursued you can hear the whispers.. also a problem occurs in that mode because of the whole not getting a contract thing. Contracts take longer to get when you are close to other templars which sucks on deathmatch because of the restricted maps.. you basically have to run to the other side of the map..which exposes you
