I don't know if i can play Multiplayer anymore. The last couple matches i've been in i seem to be the only one who bothers going for the Incognito bonus, everyone just runs around trying to rack up their kill score. Also, i don't if it's lag or what but i haven't gotten as many Honorable Deaths as i did when i started playing.

What's the highest number of Incognito kills you've gotten in this game?

Yea, I was losing like crazy yesterday... Kept dying and only getting a score high as 2500 in Deathmatch. However the day before there was people who were in the same level as me... so I use the tripwire bomb and wait for my pursuer. Manhunt again is where I got my highest score and every other Objective mode I'm still learning little by little.

But these good players (level 20 to 50) out smarted me with their tricks. I was just getting owned because they were more patient than me. lol Also they had better perks, sometimes I feel way too vulnerable if I sit in a crowd with only a tripwire bomb by my side and a knife to slow them down.

So far I got two Incognito kills...

Whats scary is that I've yet to get a focus kill Puzzled guess I gotta change the way I play somehow....

Regardless it's enjoyable, just something to play for a good while and done.

Stealth was never really common in Brotherhood MP. Sad

I haven't lost to a player that rushes everything. If I get 2nd, it's because the 1st place player is stealthier than I am. I almost never see them. When half or more of the players are rushing, it's difficult to get anything done.

Decided to get this game after all. When I go up to my parents my level and experience will be way lower than everyones.

Anyway Joey judging from my gameplay in the ACR beta videos do you think I will still easily be able to compete online, or has the gameplay changed drastically? Im fairly certain I can adapt though, and it might help you guys if I upload videos early where I lack abilities.

Yeah, you'll do perfect. We both use the exact same strategies, I found, haha. I still dominate, so you will, too.

Thats kinda weird because my gameplay was so average in the beta because I found no need to improve my gameplay.

Do people use throwing knives to stun in deathmatch? I found in the beta they were so useful because they also help identify your pursuer, but I had limited time to play it after I figured it out.( left before the patch).

Would you say the gameplay has now slowed down so people try get silent bonuses, or is the majority of the population rushing for discreet?

Throwing knives are used a lot, yes. I haven't since I started, since they're automatically given to you when you start multiplayer.

More often than ACB, you find most people being stealthier. Every once in a while, you see someone always on the roofs (even in Deathmatch), using a gun to snipe targets and running everywhere, frustrating everyone. I've had a few games where the majority were roof runners, but it's not as bad. It's much more enjoyable.

I just played multiplayer for any Assassin's Creed game period today.
I brought my Revelations over to my friend's house and free-loaded off of his wi-fi.
Got to level 9.
For my first time, I'd say I'm OK but not amazing.

I never run, I barely even Fast Walk most of the time.
My friends keep calling me a "evil bastard" for doing things like putting tripwires in front of hiding spots and throwing knifing people while in hiding spots. It seems like those tactics aren't super advanced so I don't know why they would react like that haha. They've both played Brotherhood's multiplayer until they reached level 20. I was afraid I would appear n00b during my first try, but it actually went kinda well.

I'm the kinda guy that always gets a Stealth/Incognito kill if possible, Hidden Kills preferred.
I'm usually not in the top tiers though. Also I don't get killed often. I've had games where I haven't been killed for the whole match, especially Corruption.

Favorite game modes are Deathmatch, Wanted, Corruption, Manhunt and Assassinate.
I wish I had internet on my PS3 Sad
I'm sad now. I would play that all day everyday haha

So how is the storyline ? I couldn't care less about playing MP but I liked the ACB introductory cutscene. Seeing things from the Templars' side is interesting. Is Vidic still around ?

Vidic is still around. As you play Multiplayer you unlock videos and text database entries on Abstergo and the Templars, how they were formed, what is their purpose, it's actually much more story-based than Brotherhood's. And there are a TON of those to unlock.

Thanks for the information. I'll be on the lookout for the videos on youtube then. Someone will probably upload the cutscenes sooner or later, at least I hope so.

Here's the storyline with the ending. For those who don't plan on playing the multiplayer or don't mind the spoilers to it:

Spoiler: Highlight to view
You play as a Templar recruit training for a specific purpose. It's not clear when you start. Every 10-15 levels you go up, you unlock more of the story. Your character is given access to all of Abstergo's luxuries (private jets, limos, access to the Templars' secret files, etc) and are constantly woken up by Vidic during your sessions to tell you how far you've come, showing his trust in you. Once you reach level 50, you are given the task of assassinating William Miles, Desmond's father. That is the final story video in the game, and most likely gives us the impression that we'll be defending a Templar attack on the Assassins in modern day in AC3.
