I'm sure most of you know about the different skins on multiplayer(doctor, harlequin, etc). It would be kind of dumb to have like 5 harlequins in a single multiplayer lobby so I'm wondering if there is going to be a limit on the number of people that can use a certain skin in each lobby, if so, what is the limit.

Also, if there is a limit, what will be the grounds for deciding who gets to choose skins first. For example, what will allow someone else in the lobby to pick a skin before me. Would it be rank? Length of time in the lobby? Maybe just first come first serve.

The limits will be a problem if mass amounts of people pre order, which I am sure they will. It would be saddening if someone preorders for the harlequin and can't play as it because other people have beat them to it. I have yet to see anyone talk about this so I figured I'd start the discussion http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

There will only be able to be one type of "skin" per lobby. The person who gets in the lobby first gets to choose first. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif

Wrong. There can be more than one "skin".

And the characters are customizable.

How do you know two players or more can choose the same skin?

Two players or more can not choose the same skin.

Unless you want your game all messed up..

For the record I'd MUCH prefer not getting my 1st choice as avatar so that we don't have half the NPCs as harlequins.

It was confirmed the avatars are customizable but I didn't see anywhere it saying one way or the other regarding avatar choice.

Again, two or more players can NEVER choose the same skin at the same match.

he is right, only 1 person can use a certain skin then that skin is locked to the other players.

I think (and hope) you're right, but just curious how you two are so sure?

I am tired right now and dont have the energy to look for the links but if you look at some of the multiplayer videos it hints towards it. When they first start to play and choose their character the ones that are already chosen are faded out and you skip right over them to the next assassin not taken.

It could be something like Mortal Combat where if a fighter is taken, you can still choose him, but he will have a different skin!

Of course, you will have to wait until you unlock the skin to do this, but at the same time, i doubt you'll be able to choose more than 1 of the same character!

In some MP vids you see them hover over a guy, and it says he is already in use, so i'm guessing you won't be able to.

Besides, why are so many people asking about this??

Maybe they think that the seven other players they will be in a match with will get cocky and arrogant and prove that they preordered the game from GameStop by choosing only the Harlequin all the time?

I think I have seen the Courtesan in another costume if I remember right in a pic but I donít know if that will let more than one player go as that character, as everyone as said here once someone has picked a character itís locked and you will have to go with another.

there must be different designs or color pairs.

or they can have a system where it doesnt match more than 1 skin together in a match.

actually, that wouldnt work at all...
