A winner is out - the Frontier, chosen favorite of Round IV (AC3 and Liberation), is eliminated from our game!

The previous 2 eliminted cities - New York and Rome - were runner up on their respective rounds.

The elimination of the Frontier (15 votes) means that all AC3 cities are eliminated from the game.

Which one is next? :cool:

I hope Jerusalem is finally out so I can start voting for other options, lol. I've been voting for it since Elimination 1 :p

I see I will finally starting voting for other cities when the game becomes really tough, I've spent the easiest part stuck with the same option!

Voted for C.O.L. There are some nice islands, and the ruins are good, but there are also some sh1t holes :D
I also do not like the forts. I only use them as fast travel points and the occasional ammo top-up. they are a bit of a mess visually inside.

People talk like everybody's only played AC2 once all those years ago and that our memory's are a rose tinted haze even though we own the games and can play it any time and STILL hold positive opinions of AC2.

No, Rome, the Frontier, and New York are just some of my favorite maps in the series.

Damascus, Florence, Rome, Constantinople, Boston, New York, Frontier, Havana, Kingston, Nassau

Those are my favorite maps, barring the "home" cities/towns, which are always my absolute favorites since they're "home." I don't tend to count them on actual rankings though.
But seriously, any map after AC2 are top maps because AC1 and AC2's stupid smoggy filter or whatever. I also love colonial architecture so..

Acre would actually beat Damascus for me if it wasn't for the smog filter and if the color filter wasn't as strong.

Constantinople might take this!

To me, and many people as far as I remember from previous polls, that city is stunning! It has gorgeous and diverse environments that range from slums to rich districts alike. Some of the BEST background music to date, the docks at night are especially beautiful.

Some of the best landmarks in the series like the Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia and Galata Tower, My favorite city to date.

Thank you.

For whatever reason, some people seem to get really angry at the fact that AC2 is a fan favorite - like its popularity automatically puts in discredit whoever likes it best. It's little annoying - I know it must suck to hate something and see it being preferred over your favorite, but really, does it matter that much?

I, for one, played the whole series at once when AC3 was released, so I don't have nostalgia over one in particular as I played them all in a row. I know how to appreciate each one of the game for whatever reasons, nor do I have a favorite assassin or whatever. Each of them plays their cards well in my opinion. But, although AC2 has its problems, I still have a soft spot for it. I doesn't come out of nothing, nor it's simply nostalgia. I'm currently in my third playthrough of the series and I still find myself loving Florence.

I have been a fan of this franchise since 2007, and even though this account is relatively new, I still remember the old days in which Al Mualim was an ancestor of Vidic......

My theory about the "hate" or critics that AC II receives here by some some people, like myself -do not get wrong, I love AC II- is the fact that outside this forum, in places like facebook and youtube, expressing any critics about it -and ACB to a lesser extent- or any preference in regards of other games and protagonists in the series would lead to neverending doses of cyber bullying. Here it seems that you can be more vocal about those things, even to the point that the situation is the exact opposite haha.

This..

it's not that everyone likes it, it's the fact that if anyone says otherwise, they're bullied to no end (to a lesser extent here)

people who get annoyed here about the hate towards AC II should go to YT or FB and say that they like AC III, AC IV, ACR or Connor best....see how you'll be treated.

The "hate" towards AC II here is NOTHING compared to what a non-AC II fan (heck, just someone who does not think AC II is the best thing ever to exist and was the second coming of Jesus) will get elsewhere, i'm sure it'd be the same way here if it wasn't for the mods and forum managers keeping everyone in check.

I've seen a lot of people say that they like AC 3, AC 4, AC R or Connor best and still be treated well by the community of AC fans.

Granted there are a lot of trolls since the AC community is large, but there are quite a few sensible people as well.

I'm critiquing AC2 a lot on these forums, but I do so with pretty much every AC game here :p And by 'critiquing' I mean 'critiquing' not 'pouring with ****' - i.e. argumenting everything I love and don't like about the game, what I consider good and bad.

That being said, AC2 can get on my nerves for one reason: it gets away with things other AC games don't, people can diss other AC games for things that are present in AC2 as well, but since it's AC2 it's all awesome. And that can get somewhat irritating.

Well yes, people have posted about how good AC 3 and AC 4 are on AC 2 videos without being attacked. Of course if you post that you didn't like AC 2 in a confrontational manner, people will react, because that's the internet equivalent of walking into a movie discussion room dedicated to talking about one movie, and talking rudely about that movie.

I'm not sure that can be done in a nonconfrontational way, respectfully maybe, but this scenario is confrontational by its nature. You're peeing in someone's pool. If you wanted to do something truly interesting, develop your respectful, nonconfrontational comment and post it on videos for each of the games, changing only the character's name and game in each post (Altaïr < Ezio < Connor < Edward < Altaïr). Then do the same for a movie franchise with different actors (Spider-man, Batman, James Bond). That might be worth discussing.

Of course, that might be considered trolling, but in the interest of science...

To get the ball rolling, I found an AC2 video with both pro-AC3 and anti-AC2 comments: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AQb1ngImAg

Constantinople is a city that, in my humble opinion, has the best this franchise has offer. From slums to very rich districts, ruins, grandeur landmarks, a very engaging atmosphere, etc etc.

I don't hate Constantinople by any means, but the freerunning in it is the most cumbersome apart from AC3's cities. So I'm not too crazy about it.

The beautiful city, mesmerizing ambient music, Yusuf Tazim, along with a touching conclusion to Ezio and Altair's stories make up for its shortcomings in my opinion. Go try it out, the ending is written wonderfully. Just...ignore Sofia.

I strongly disagree. There were some really good characters in ACR, sure I thought some of them had some missed potential but they were far more interesting than anything we got in brotherhood and II.

The Villains in ACR for one were interesting.

Then don't state it so broadly as a problem with AC III's cities..

No they didn't. Ahmet was a better villain than all of AC2 and ACB's Templars combined. And Yusuf was...Yusuf. Come on, surely you liked Yusuf...

Ahmet was okay. And Suleiman too, I forgot about those two. Yusuf was almost as boring as Sofia. Not quite, but almost. Hell, even Altaïr was bad and he's my favorite assassin.

Your post was different, though..it wasn't an opinion, it was an experience and you broadly said "this is better compared to AC III's cities" which is just wrong, because the problem is not in AC III's cities, it's in the bugs you faced. so disregarding the whole opinion thing, the phrase itself does not accurately represent your view.

Not every complaint I had about AC3's cities was due to bugs. The automated freerunning made navigation a PITA and that wasn't a bug but a "feature". Trees being unclimbable was the most common bug I experienced and there weren't enough trees in the cities for this to be the main problem. I simply found there to be too many gaps between houses and not enough visual cues for alternate routes like in previous games. I don't care if you can prove that it's possible to run through Boston using nothing but rooftops. I don't play the games like that. I use the rooftops when it feels convenient, and the automated freerunning in AC3 made rooftop navigation a chore at the best of times. MY experience is that freerunning in the Altaïr and Ezio games is smooth and intuitive, whereas in AC3 it's slow and cumbersome.

ACR was the best Ezio game in terms of story, locale, and gameplay (except in some facets). The characters were fairly equal besides Ezio, whose best characterization is in ACR (or AC2, depends). The Jannisarries sucked though, not because they were "hard," but rather because they implemented an artificial way of making them tougher: giving them a crap-load of health. ACR also suffered from a lack of meaningful side content.

In terms of overall ranking I'd actually place ACR lower than ACB in terms of enjoyability, but if ACR had the same depth of side content as ACB, it would definitely beat ACB.

Your experience (apart from the bugs) is skewed then, if you choose to ignore the fact that the problem lies in how you play the game then it's not the city's fault. I have shown videos that changed many people's mind about the free-running on AC III's rooftops and that it's not as bad everyone seems to make it out to be, if you're going to ignore that, then i WILL call you out when you use a broad term to describe your experience.

it's impossible for a functioning Human being to have no personality anyway and yes, that includes animated pixels.

Lol, "if you think this is bad, then it's your fault because you're playing the game wrong". Tell you what: Ezio is a fantastic protagonist, AC2 is an amazing game and Venice's filter is awesome. If you disagree, you're wrong because you're just not playing the game according to my standards.

That's incorrect, i'm not talking about a standard or an opinion, that would be childish. I'm explaining that i have shown that the rooftops in AC III are just as accessible and connected as the ones in AC II-ACB but you deliberately choose to ignore that and say "that's not how i play", if you're intentionally ignoring a way of play that makes the rooftops more fun, then it IS your fault.

You can't change the way you play to give Ezio a better characterization or the filters in the cities (well, you could actually do the last one on PC with an ENB series).

You can lower your expectations to a level where you can enjoy cliché Hollywood Italian stallions. If you're refusing to lower your standards so you can enjoy the game, then it's your fault for not enjoying the characterization. ;)

I don't think I had to lower my standards to have fun with the rooftops in AC III, I don't think you would either...what you're proposing is a completely different case
