Hey everyone!

I LOVE polls, after using them heaps for sociology class at Uni, they've become a bit of a hobby. So when I found out these forums have them, I was like OMG I'M GONNA ABUSE THIS.
Hopefully these threads won't annoy anyone too much, but I just love knowing people's opinions :P

So, what hood is your favourite and why?

I choose Ezio from revelations. Because it doesn't go to out like ac2 and brotherhood. I also love the point... I don't like ac3 the point is just way too long. And I think arno's is way to small in that picture... However in the games com demo it looks like the best so far...

I'm so gonna choose Edwards. Because he had the best beak EVAR that never existed.

Honestly I'm not the biggest fan of beaked hoods. Don't get me wrong or anything they are cool but I just never saw the point exactly, Is it just aesthetic? Does it signify that you are a true assassin?

Second I would choose Arno's because once again it's there but not so defined.

Also Kiwi. it makes sense that you like polls due to your background ! haha. So far not bothered! :D

That is great to hear because I have another one planned! :P
Don't want to post it yet though seeing as I just posted this one, I'll give it some time but I'll be really interested to hear all the opinions of everyone here.

Also, the point of the beak was to make them look like a bird of prey. I think it's pretty neat, that's why I picked Alta´r's hood because it is the beakiest.

Honestly, it doesn't in my Book. I thought Edward understood the meaning and purpose of the Creed in 1 game then Ezio did in 3 games.

And I'm happy Ubi decided to have Edward have no beak, it only really made him stand out rather than the stereotypical "hero" who is chosen to do this larger than life quest.

Plus with yearly releases, you'd think that they would I dunno...TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

But atlas, I chose Altair...his is original unlike Connor's...not over-the-top flashy like Ezio's....Plus Shay's comes in Second with how his hood looks in Black.

@Pop

The purpose of the beaked Hoods is to signify that you're Chosen to help someone in the MD, or First Civ.
( Otherwise a Pawn ;) )

Bwahaha! It looks exactly like an eagle!

Ahh.. this does make sense then! "the more you know" . . .

still I never cared for the beak. I guess it was just more of a connection with eagles, which is still cool in it's own way


@Nami

*slow Clap* I actually totally agree with you on your points! It did make Edward stand out quite a bit! It also back in the day created an uproar here on the forums. I remembe one person went as far to say they were going to quit the series because he didn't have a beaked hood. haha. It was ridiculous!

I did laugh at eddy understanding the creed v. Ezio. #truestory

I just never saw the point.

Neither did we with Edward's hood. :rolleyes:

I went with Connor's hood. Not because of the beak but it just looks the most.. solid? I don't know, I just prefer the look.
I also like how in the original design, Connor's hood represented a wolf instead of an eagle. Shame that didn't make it into the final game. Instead they went with the eagle again, and this time even more obvious.

I like both, beaked and non-beaked hood designs. Edward has the best looking one imo. But seeing Arno's, I believe I'm going to like his hood even more.

@jay: You've got an avatar showing Ezio's beaked hood and then you're going for Connor? Na na na. :p

Yeah, I know. Ezio's beaked hood in Brotherhood is still awesome, but this profile picture looks better than it does in game. I'm going off in-game hoods, and I think Connor's is the best. ;)

The white hood with the red trim in that picture you have is pretty cool, too bad it didn't translate into the game that well...

I agree. In this photo and on the ACB cover the lines have a neon red glow.

My favorite is the hood Ezio wore in Revelations.

Irony enough,I liked Shay's hood.Well,kind of.I loved his outfit(black outfits seems amazing to me),and so it tricks me into loving the hood.Ah,Shay...

I like Edward's hood the best. Honestly, I don't feel that hoods should necessarily have beaks on them. Also, Edward's hood resembles the one on my jacket. :p

My second favourite one is Connor's hood, the eagle emblem looks cool.

Lastly, I really like beaked-hood design on ACB Ezio. It looks simply stunning.

connor's leather hood was definitly the best.

But arno's robe looks alot more charming :P

Connor's is my favourite but I am loving Arno's right now and the texture is very nice.

Connor's hood for me. Really like that "eagle" symbol embedded in the beak :)

I'll be honest, I REALLY hate beaked hoods. So much, in fact, that I love most of Edward's wardrobe for it. And Shay's as well.

Arno's hood has a subtle beak that I hope will become a trend in the future installments.

Consider though that the three other dudes on the forum background/Unity box art are basically also Arno and their hoods have giant beaks.
But perhaps there'll be beakless hoods available in the game as well! ;)

I would go with Connor's. He has a nice design on the front, and the hood looks like a wolf when you look at it from the side.

Alta´r's was the most period-accurate and unique IMO. I love that it's more closed than the others, no empty room on either side. Very much like you'd expect a Crusader-era person to dress.

I couldn't care less about the beak.

The beak just symbolizes those that were chosen to help someone in the MD or First Civ.

Nothing Else...

Toss up between Altair and ACB Ezio's. I love Altair's as it looked the most like an actual beak but I also really dig the red lining on ACB's hood and the beak's design there.

Don't really follow you here, but it's eagle at least for Altair.

AC1-It's alright.
AC2- I like how silky and smooth it looks.
ACB- I like it.
ACR-Too triangular for me.(The beak)
AC3- I like the eagle design and it's my favorite because it goes well with his outfit.
AC4-I prefer beaks but I like the change of pace.
ACU-I'm liking it more and more.
ACRO-I hardly noticed it was beakless because his outfit is so AWESOME.

Altair- Chosen to help Ezio help Desmond to find the Temple
Ezio- Chosen to help Desmond find the Temple
Connor- Chosen to help Desmond find the Key to save world.

All those led to Juno's freedom...what exactly did Edward do for MD? Aita's blood was all that mattered for Abstergo.

And I'm confident Arno will help someone in the MD/ First Civ as well...

And you're right...it does mean Eagle. ;)

Kinda makes you wonder why both Alta´r and Ezio were necessary...

I like the fact that it's a hoodie.
Except, since hoodie-wearing is attributed to delinquency, it might attract some unwanted attention.
Where I live, it's actually illegal to wear hoodies after a certain time.

Where I used to work, if you have a hoodie you wouldn't be allowed in, down or not.

Seriously?!

There's a shopping mall in London that started the ban and there's been a 50% drop in crime and 20% increase in customers, luckily Abstergo didn't have a hoodie ban or else Desmond would have been screwed...

I liked ACR Ezio's. It wasn't too in-your-face, but it was still aesthetically pleasing. And it wasn't tight around the back of his head, that looked good IMO.

I'm calling fanboyism on anyone who voted for Connor. He had the best overall outfit, but that frigging HUGEASS embroidered floppy eagle patch on his forehead looked absolutely awful.

I liked Connors hood mainly because of the embroidered eagle. :) To each his own I guess. I can see why people dislike it however. Although I do want to change my answer from Connor to ACR Ezios hood. Started playing it again today and forgot how much I loved his entire outfit, especially the hood.
