just a question i would like to ask because i know we all have our way of playing assassins creed. but anyways....... i am not that patient so im the type of assassin who runs into the misson and kills every guard in sight and freeruns all the time . but since ezio is 52 i will try not to freerun as much u know so he don't brake his hip or anything like that Tongue.

I have to say that it depends on my mood. I like being able to kill large amounts of guards, but I prefer to pick them off one by one. Then take out the target. Or, more often, pick off outer guards (the ones of rooftops, mostly), then take out the target, and do a mixture of fight and flight to escape.

I'll be the stealthy assassin.
I'll free-run and kill guards for fun, but in the main missions i'll be as stealthy as possible, and i'll try to use most of the new features as an advantage.
Example: the hook blade, i could assassinate the target by using a zip line and getting close to him.
Example 2: The bombs, i could use an explosive bomb to distract the guards and/or scare the target, then he will run away from his "safe spot" and then i assassinate him.

So..yeah.. I'll be as stealthy as possible in the main missions, and then when just in "free-roam" i'll have fun by killing alot of guards, free-running ALOT, crafting bombs and stuff like that. Wink

I'll make a poor attempt at being stealthy, ultimately fail at the most climatic point of the mission and then run in, guns blazing, and escape with the whole city knowing of my actions Shy

That is my "Plan B". In case i fail into being stealthy on the mission, i'll blow sh*t up of the Templars. Tongue

I'll be the kind that restarts the mission if my kill doesn't look stylish in some way, or my escape sucks.

And I'll probably not get it right on the first try. -.-

I wanted to do that, but i have no patience for this.
I think that the escapes should be like in the AC1 trailer. Wink

I use this strategy, too. It's not impossible. In fact, it's possible on every target in AC1 and nearly every one in AC2. If you can't do 1 mission just like that, you shouldn't be playing this series, let alone be on this forum. Unless you're nice.

EA56 calm down, Joey calm down....

I have to agree with Joey, in AC1 i always tried to assassinate my target just like in the Trailer.
In AC2 i usually tried to. Tongue
It's not hard, just requires you to "plan your actions" before doing them, you need to make a strategy. Just this.

Okay, AC2 is forgivable to only do 2 missions the "expected way", but AC1? It's child's play after the first couple of tries.

I'm not surprised. But that's how I play AC. Very quiet in, very loud out.

I like to always strike with perfect precision. Basically, stealth on the way in, making sure the target doesn't know I struck him until it's too late, and trying to make the perfect escape.

Actually, I've failed. Once. On the William mission. Altaïr just wouldn't jump up the desk and perform an air to assassinate. I was so mad I cleansed the entire fortress.

Hahahahah ! I did almost the same ! I couldn't kill William, then i was like: Screw this ! Then climbed down the ladder, assassinated him, then i looked the bunch of guards coming to me and i was like: Sh*t !!!!!!!! Than i ran away. Tongue

Okay you need to really fucking stop correcting every god damn spelling mistake. You're quickly becoming more of an annoyance.

On that note, it varies depending on the mission, but I generally try to pick apart an environment brick by brick. On ships, I'll try throwing every guard overboard before heading in for the target. In compounds, I'll try figuring a path and then slowly picking off guards on the way to my target.

One of my favorite methods, however, is the Jack in the Box. That's when you place yourself directly above a target, drop down, and then shove a blade in their face (smoke bomb is optional, though it's generally helpful in terms of escape). The brief surprise animation that occurs from a sudden drop down on all targets before they enter fight or flee mode always entertains me.

I guess I'm pretty much stealthy throughout, or at least I try to be. If I'm in a bad mood (ie, failed killing of Borgia Captain on a Tower mission) I'll whip out the short blade and slaughter everything with a pulse, but I generally stand by Teddy Roosevelt's foreign policy of "speak softly and carry a big stick."

I'm a big fan of the stealth, although it seems they're trying to make it more and more about brute strength. I enjoy kicking the living crap out of every guard in sight, but only if stealth isn't possible, if I screwed up a stealthy escape, or I'm bored. When you're bored, few things are more fun that killing 100 or so guards without taking any damage.

The Templars were framed.

altair and ezio have different move´s altair is stealthy and ezio would kill them all in a cool way because so is he so was that at the time he would probably kill them all one at a time like you see in the trailer.
ubisoft made the combat so that you can fight a lot of people at ones so why ignore it.

So that your target never sees you coming, and the guards only get a glimpse of you as you disappear over a rooftop. Hopefully, this game will have difficult guard types that encourage being stealthy because they're legitemately challenging in combat.

If its anything like AC2 and ACB, I will most likely stumble in blindly and get seen, then kill my target in some lame easy chase. I will then kill every guard after the memory corridor in some piss easy fight and stroll out of the area ring you need to escape.

I would rather not do this, but im going to play without HUD on my first playthrough, as it will definatly make it more challenging, help me learn the city better and will also make the game seem longer ( as I will spend loads of time stumbling around blindly)

I would like to go in quitely without even killing anyone but the main target, and then escaping using a predetermined escape route, but this just doesnt happen for me on the first time...

I've never started a game without the intended elements, but I may do this for Revelations. Unless I find myself walking around for hours without reaching my goal 20 meters away. Then I'll turn on the map to help for that moment. It reminds me of Damascus, and I loved travelling without the HUD in that city.

Yeah usually I play the game the way the developers intended, and then replay missions using my own restrictions. However looking back at brotherhood I still barely remember much of the city, I only remember key buildings like the Pantheon. Last time I played I felt kind of guilty, I was literally just staring at the minimap as I ran towards my destination, I was really missing out on the whole immersive feel of the game.

I like using the minimap to plan my basic free-running strategy for the next few minutes, judging the distances between buildings. Other than that, I don't use it that much. Even in missions, I just glance at it once and a while and follow the path and look for the markers.

I appreciate the mini-map because I understand how to navigate streets because of it. AC1's lack of any mini-map was detrimental to exploring, for me. It also gives synchronizing towers a more tangible purpose.
