Hello all,
3 months ago I bought assassin's creed, but my computers graphics card couldn't run it(because of being a workstation card). Yesterday I got my new awesome computer and assassin's creed runs fine http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
But I've got some questions about the game.

I can't counterkill. Is it a skill you get later in the game, or do I just need practice?

First time I got to the kingdom all guards started attacking me for nothing. Is this always like this?

How do you do that flying attack with the hidden blade? When saving civilians I would like to kill the first guard like this. But I always just ran into the guards.


I'm in damascus now having a great time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Guards aren't really strong I noticed(I just stay hitting at them, easy to win lol)

You need to press the attack button as soon as someone trys to attack you.

Yeah, well alot of people have asked about this, you need to blend with the monks or walk slowly because for some damn reason the guards there are actually clever enough to figure that you're an assassin http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Well, I don't actually know how to do it... There's no specific button you press or anything I think it's just context sensitive http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Hope I helped... don't really think I did though; but I tried http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

if you want to rugby tackle the first guard to kill him just hold the right mouse and space so you sprint then if you have hidden blade selected (cant remember the weapon number) when you get close hit the left mouse button and you should dive into the guard and killi him if you get the timing correct.

Question number 1:
in the beginning of the game, you have all the skills of the highest rank of an assassin, but you lost your ranks and your equipment because you didn't respect the creed. Because you lost your equipment, you also lost most of your abilities, so you also lost the counter-kill. But don't worry, you'll get it back soon enough http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. you must restore your ranks and each rank you restore gives you back a piece of equipment and an ability. If you still can't do the counter-kill, i'd say practice and time your counter kill right. Hold right mouse button and click left mouse button when the enemy's sword is JUST ABOUT TO HIT YOU.
Second question:
Well, that's because all the guards in that area are in a war-zone (notice that there are French and Arabic guards over there) so they always have their swords drawn and look for their enemies. The guards in the city aren't in the war-zone, so they won't expect enemies there, untill you start killing that is http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
Third Question:
Ah yes, the most precious of kills http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif
Pretty easy to do. First press 2 to select your hidden blade. (I noticed that when you lock on to the guard they immediatly start attacking you, so don't lock onto them). Second, hold right mouse button and start running towards him. Third, if you have good timing, click when you are running close to him, if not, just do *click click click*. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I hope i helped. I really love this game too and I am still finding new ways to kill enemies!

the page wouldn't load this morning, therefor I just started playing assassin's creed and figered it all out myself. But thx for the reply!
I just have learned how to dodge, and even templars are easy. Now busy with killing all the guards in the kingdom.(just because fighting is so fun). I died 2 times by william, because when going back the assassin's bureau I jumped wrong 2 times, made me fall from so hight that I got instant kills.
Countering with the hidden blade is so awesome http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Sometimes, with your hidden blade you make your victim fall on his knees and then you stab him in the neck from behind him. I also like this one http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif But so difficult to do!

The trick to the kness-assassination is to stand right behind him then hold down the High Profile button and press Assassinate http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
