    The XBL population was pretty comfortable when I checked this weekend, even in game modes other that Dominion, so I have to imagine it'd be as good or better on PS4.

    Yeah, I never have problems finding games on XBL or Steam.

    Steam, of course, shows its numbers and that population has been hovering around 9K for the last month. And I don't think (?) you have to go through Steam if you bought it direct via UPlay, so that might be accounting for a decent chunk of players as well.

    Not bad.

    XBL has it listed as the 16th highest played game right now: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/most-played/games/xbox

    Yes, and whatever mysterious criteria they use to sort through it.

    It's good to hear there's still a serviceable population on PC though, even if it is divided? A lot of games have tended to take a hard dive on PC compared to their console populations, whether it's due to more competitive releases, or server issues like cheating, or whatever else. I think it was the first of the rebooted Battlefront series that a few months after launch, the PC population was between a fourth and fifth the Xbox population alone.

    The new faction looks pretty sweet, and fairly unique compared to the other 3. I like that we get another big, slow character a la the Shugoki and Lawbro. Though maybe he's more akin to the Highlander in that regard? We'll see.

    Ugh. Come on work clock.

    Feel like I wasted $30 on this expansion... These developers just can't seem to work out a way to make solo content for this game that is fun, My Nobushi is geared up for purple quests in Arcade, but it's just stupid bullshit. Yes, I want to play a mode where I'm triple teamed by cheap, overpowered enemies it's so much fun, thank you this is amazing...

    And you get pretty much nothing in the way of XP.

    Man, I wish Sony would do refunds like Steam.

    Everyone has a price. Throw enough gold around and someone will risk disintegration.

    There isn't much to the arcade mode, no, but I liken it to other fighting game arcade modes. Progress through various enemies, each more difficult than the previous ones.

    Is anyone here still playing this? I kind of fell off before Marching Fire came out and was too caught up with other stuff to get back in. The problem with getting back in is I forget everything but the basics of how to play, and also all the combos have changed.

    Oh yeah, they're doing an AC crossover event, too.

    Oh hey, guess who's back? Got this on my PS4 because my buddies never got the PC version.

    Weird to play at 30 fps, but feels great to come back to Conqueror with so many good changes, also I see a lot of the frustrating stuff (Revenge builds, running away, etc) is finally gone. Game seems to be in a much better place now!

    It does feel a bit mean to play against so many new players, with my new account.

    Vortiger is... okay? Definitely offers a semi-unique play style, but I prefer conq if I'm gonna play a shield knight.

    He can certainly turtle for days, though, especially on modes where he can heal when in FB.

    I find Breach to be really fun to play! Also not rare to end a match with 2,000+ points.

    So I pretty much started playing this fresh on the PS4 on Tuesday/Wednesday, and after this week, I'm sitting on around 13,500 steel. And characters cost 10k (15k for the new ones), that seems really generous. Yeah, I have the steel from doing the tutorials, but at this rate it's about 10 days to unlock a character? Not bad.

    Also, I still absolutely hate fighting against Centurion, what an annoying fighting style.

    Finally dug back in last night. Man, For Honor is still awesome. That being said, the armor system seems totally different and there's perks to fill up? Ugh, I feel overwhelmed.

    That and I FORGET HOW TO FEINT. Argh hah.

    Yeah, they made so it works like in Monster Hunter, where you now need to get a certain amount of points to activate a skill. And the actual skills are so much less silly than before, no more people gaining revenge after blocking 3 hits for example.

    I've been enjoying the game a lot again, I'm almost renown 4 on my Conqueror on PS4. I logged into my PC account and it's funny to see that I have 38 premium packs and 38K salvage.

    I read this post on reddit, and it lays out all the changes we've seen to the game. I remember I stopped playing mostly because of the Centurion death squads absolutely ruining Dominion (And probably other games came out).

    I love the new armor system. Fun enough perks to work for, but nothing so broken or OP as to create completely one-sided match-ups.

    Noticed it was free on PS+ this month so I hopped back in as well.

    The new gear system is so much better than it was. I apparently still have the muscle memory to parry the highlanders unbreakables every time. This will be fun

    Some things that took me a bit to get used to was being able to parry lights now, and also no guaranteed GB on parries. I still remember how much of a turtle-fest it had become, where attacking first was the worst thing you could do.

    Reinstalled again to play around. Mostly because of https://youtu.be/4OjfMnQs020

    Shugoki got another changeup recently, Headbutts don't really cause the kind of Stamina damage they did before. Since I barely played them before, I'm trying out some of the Wu Lin guys, and I like the Zhanhu. Chopping off limbs for days.

    I come back to this game in bouts and honestly, it all really feels like they need to make For Honor 2, now that they are aware they are making a fighting game.

    The foundation is flawed, cause they thought it would be a third person action game, but it isn't.

    I've stopped coming back

    because they started making a fighting game and I fucking hated it.

    All PvP games are fighting games if you are reductionist enough :).
