You know how in AC3 and AC4 O or B was the sync button for viewpoints? This was also the drop button.

Problem, right there. I hated how if after you synced a viewpoint, you either climbed down slowly, or did the leap of faith. If you pressed O or B again, it would do that camera pan thing, you could never drop.

In previos games this was fixed, L3 was used to sync viewpoints and it made much more sense given that this was also the button to activate eagle vision. This also meant you could drop down as O had no other function but drop.

I don't know why in AC3 and AC4 they went back to O and B for sync as a lot of times I just want to drop of the viewpoint ledge.

I hope in AC Unity L3 becomes the sync button again.

Anyone else prefer L3 to sync?

Then sync button was triangle up until ACR, not circle.

It wouldn't really matter to me, as I never really had the problem. I've never felt the need to drop down from the eagle's perch, because just LoFing is a much faster way of getting down.

But with the new Controlled Descent feature there's certainly a possibility that these functions will be split again.
