    That's like saying a salad is bad because it doesn't have as much meat as a steak dinner. Different things, different measures for success.



    Except, For Honor is still quite active across all 3 platforms.

    I think I did not expressed myself clear. A purely naval game with less water content than Black Flag. If that happens (which is looking like by the data we have thus far) then the game will be a failure 100%.

    soo not to be disrespectful or whatever, but I just wanna show you that I am not the ONLY one thinking that skull and bones will be a bad game when its just a naval mmo.

    see? and there are a lot more comments like these but it would be too much to post them here now...but please ubisoft, make a change!
    I was initially hyped for this believing it would be the ultimate pirate game and a spiritual successor to the excellent Blag Flag, being able to build upon what that game got soooo right!

    Then I found out it had none of that stuff.....

    That's me out.

    I'd rethink this one Ubisoft.

    I love the idea of naval only.
    For me, boarding a ship, treasure hunting and so on in Black Flag was the most annoying thing.
    I really loved being on the sea and stearing the ship while listening to the shanties of the crew.

    If ubi include boarding like in Black Flag in the game, I can see how people like you Captain_Ryder_7 will exploit it.
    There won't be fun if every battle will have some annoying kids who wants to board my ship and force me into time consuming on deck battles.

    And by the way, I for myself don't waste time on commenting youtube videos, so haters gonna hate like always, and it's always the haters who are shouting the loudest.

    I'm well aware of people who like pure naval stuff only but you see this game has potential if it doesnt turn into another naval-only game like world of warships..more like an open world pirate game like black flag where you actually control a CHARACTER in this game...now THAT is what everyone wants for this game and if you like pure naval stuff only, there is a game called "naval action" or "holdfast" or "world of warships" and lemme tell you one thing...you know the game "BLACKWAKE"? if THAT game was a pure naval game without controlling a character in first person and without boarding battles and all that, that game would have flopped damn hard...see, a pirate game or "the ultimate pirate game" as ubi says about S&B, shouldnt contain naval stuff only..that is like I said, just ONE part of the pirate fantasy and not everything...by the way, even BLACKWAKE has islands to get on...even THAT has it! where you control a character running and jumping around freely in the ENTIRE map (which also includes SWIMMING) like I said, controlling a CHARACTER in the ENTIRE MAP! and BLACKWAKE only has 2 DEVELOPERS on it! just 2!

    Ryder the real irony here is that every thread you are in here telling people that if they want a naval only game they should go play something else, yet every time you are saying you want Skull & Bones to basically be more like Black Flag. Yes there are other naval only games out there, no we don't want to play them, we're excited for this game.

    We don't care about the plethora of YouTube comments you've posted.

    We don't care that there are other naval only games out there we could play.

    We don't care that it's not like Black Flag.

    We don't care that some of the mechanics that were in Black Flag are missing here.

    We DO care about waiting until we see and hear more about this game and basing our opinions on that.

    Please stop crapping on anyone's opinion that isn't aligned with yours.

    You should think more For Honor mixed with World of Warships.Circa 1716. Your trying to create the game you envision which will never be like Sid Meier's Pirates! or Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag this is going to be a purely multiplayer experience and I am quite looking forward to it.

    A suggestion...

    I loved Black Flag - its the closest a game has come to the ultimate pirate experience on console.

    Skull & Bones looks like its just the naval combat bit of AC4 and not much else - so if anything, FURTHER from the ultimate pirate experience...in fact its not even a full game, given that AC4 did it along with LOTS of other piratical shenanigans.

    As for it being online PvP only - no thanks

    Gutted

    Can somebody at Ubisoft get hold of a copy of Empire of Blue Water by Stephan Talty (https://www.amazon.com/Empire-Blue-W...+of+blue+water) and give it a read?

    One of the BEST books on piracy, the biography of one of the GREATEST pirates and check out his adventure on land and at sea to get an idea of what the ULTIMATE pirate experience looks like

    A game based on Morgan's exploits would be INCREDIBLE!

    Take Skull & Bones and put it on a separate multiplayer disc like you did with Black Flag and have the game itself follow Morgan's career from the invasion of Jamaica in 1655 to his death in 1688

    Its not too late to get this right...
