This post was inspired by a tweet I saw on my timeline yesterday morning, you should check out their podcast, I know I will be!
At the time of this post, I haven’t played the games. I have just witnessed the fallout online and these are my thoughts on that, take what I say with a pinch of salt. 😊
Online gaming can be great. You get to play a game you enjoy with others who do so, you could meet friends, maybe even a partner online, I’ve read stories about that many a time! Sadly, people, me included at one stage, take online gaming far too seriously.
I’ve seen people in gaming groups I’m in only requesting the highest of rank players to join them, people get toxic to new players who are trying to learn the ropes, people will abuse the system to boost their ranks, to name a few examples.
Today I’m going to be talking about why I believe the online stats are not worth the aggro.
Here we go again! I’m back on my nonsense again with another post aimed at Ubisoft! Well, Siege in particular. It’s a game I enjoy very much. I’ve played it pretty much nearly every day for 2 years, I’ve bought operators, season passes, cosmetics, with real money. It’s obvious how much I care for the game.
The main thing that honestly puts me off suggesting this game to people who are after a unique first person shooter game, is the community. It can be a volatile mess, to put this nicely.
Credit where it is due, Ubisoft have finally started to implement features to try to crack down on the behaviour, but it is still as rampant as it ever was.
Operation Phantom Sight? Don’t know her! What an absolute mess that season was. So many exploits, the server stressing, the DDOSers, the operators themselves being lacklustre. Not this games finest hour, I never wrote posts about the season, I just had nothing to say, here is a post I wrote about the state of the game at the time, that can be found here if you’re interested, but I digress.
The new season is finally here! And it has been an absolute blast to play so far, the operators are fun and a breath of fresh air to the Siege meta. Their abilities are balanced and easy to counter, if you know what you’re doing.
