No one knows, they do them when they feel like it.

I only recently bought AC4 and I didn't have the chance to participate in community events.

Is there a way to get the rewards now?

I think they may repeat them again, but that may prove difficult as the amount of people that play the single player is likely decreasing. Ubisoft might change something - I think I recall Mr Shade saying they might change plans in the future, but don't hold him accountable for it.

The challenges did repeat a few times -but I will check if they are finished for now, and/or if they have any plans to release the content for those people who didn't have the game at the time :)

Yeah I missed all the events except the "last" one. But I don't change my sails and Scottish broadswords (from social events) seem to be the best, so I don't feel like I'm missing out on too much.

I hope so, I'm one challenge short of the complete set, and I'm not gonna be able to play for a while...

I'm still missing a couple, since I wasn't able to play the game for a few months.

Is there a community challenge at the moment? I am not able to take a look at the moment!
I am still needing the reward for the 40 kills challenge. If i am right this one should be the next one.
I killed the amount of enemies last time but i didn't got the reward.

Locopells
05-12-2014, 11:31 AM
Nope, they'll announce them in a sticky, when there is.

Anyone knows for sure about these?

I`m missing the El Impoluto`s wheel. I finish the game with this.
I read somewhere that an event took place regarding this, that is was incomplete.
Are these community challenges going to be repeated, continued ... forgotten ...?

Thanks for info

Please Ubisoft, start the Community Challenges again.
I am only missing the reward for the 40 assasinations. Then i am complete with the whole game...
And i my thinking... the more time passes the less people are playing the game.
And then it's gonna get harder to complete the Challenges. Am i right?

Locopells
05-25-2014, 10:32 AM
Well, you'll have me - I haven't got them all either!

Yep, we're told that the Community Challenges will eventually return for another chance to earn the Captain's Wheellock pistols. No exact date yet.

Come on, guys. I paid $60 for this game because I am a big fan of the AC series but now I have to wait on the people who GET PAID to do this. My console deleted my first game at 96% because of a stupid glitch and now I am at 95% and can't finish because you guys need a vacation? I have to say, this is making me lose faith in the AC line and in UbiSoft in general. Figure it out and stop disappointing and frustrating a loyal fan base.

-One disappointed fan, among many.

I have been playing AC Black Flag on PS4 for 5 months and the only achievements I am unable to complete are the community challenges because the y are not being supported. I have wasted hours of my life searching for an answer of when this issue will be resolved and feel let down by poor response from UBI.

Please fix this issue soon.

Just a quick question. What's up with the community challenges? They no longer exist? I'm at 99% sync and just have to get all uncharted chests and fragments and it really bothers me that I can't get the el impoluto ship apparel, the explorer outfit, captains wheellocks, and I believe there's a sword set. I'm a little OCD and would like to be able to have said items for peace of mind lol.

SixKeys
06-17-2014, 11:17 PM
According to the devs they will return at some point, they're just currently on a break.

Frankly, I think they should just give us the content already instead of holding it behind lock and key after 6 months.

I stopped playing Black Flag for a while, and may have missed a community challenge. If I have missed a challenge, is it still possible to unlock the community challenge reward items? or are they locked off permanently if you miss one. They are the captain's wheellock pistols, explorer outfit, el impoluto's figurehead, el impoluto's wheel, and black and red sails.

Locopells
06-23-2014, 02:38 PM
The will come round again, but no one knows exactly when.

Anykeyer

Try "never". And even if they run them, there arent enough ppl playing SP now to reach the goal.
I hope they fired the guy responsible for this brilliant idea.

YazX_
06-24-2014, 03:25 PM
i believe they will eventually unlock for everyone since there aren't enough people as Anykeyer said, so bringing them back is kinda useless.

Si1verHa1o
06-25-2014, 12:05 PM
Is it me or has there not been a community challenge is a looong time. I still have a couple weapons i would like to unlock and there are no community events or challenges to unlock them. Did you Ubisoft stop doing them?? (Im playing on the Xbox one)

frodrigues55
06-25-2014, 12:26 PM
It was bound to happen eventually, and with AC being annualized, those type of things will be dropped sooner rather than later. That's why I hate those online stuff, you are so tied to them...

I wonder if Ubi will release some sort of unlocker once they confirm that community events are over.

Do you mean things like social chests, white whales or convoys? I've seen a few of those in the past few days.

I think some confuse 'events' like those - with 'Challenges'

The Community Events - should be ongoing - since that's an automatic process - your friends etc sharing locations of whales and chests etc

Community Challenges = where you have to complete a task to unlock an item - are returning soon - for a full cycle, so you will be able to grab items you maybe missing - details are being worked on now - however I can't give an ETA at present.

Well never is soon ;)

The team are currently working on a plan to have them come back for another cycle - and they will be aware of what are achievable targets ;)


More news as soon as we have it ;)

Did you find the thread? I think it was on Initiates and that's not around anymore. Too bad they couldn't keep it active while they were developing the new version.

Locopells
07-01-2014, 01:22 AM
Yeah, it was on Initiates - there's one or two running over here now, in the meantime:

This will show up in the pause menu as it used to right? And it will be a sticky on the forums? I'm extremely relieved to hear that the challenges are coming back as this game hasn't even been out for a year.

OK Ubisoft... When? WHEN? When will you start those challenges again.
The whole forum is UNITY all ofter the place. Soon nobody will play Black Flag anymore. Then it will be too late!
Please start the challenges again soon!!!
