Same rules as the GOW thread. Give a high, medium, and low prediction.

IE you expect it to get a 95 so you set that as your middle. Then you set 97 as your high because you don't think the game has a good chance of scoring above that. Then you set 88 as your low because you don't expect the game to score lower than that.

RESULTS WILL NOW BE SCORED SO THAT AN OVERALL WINNER CAN BE DETERMINED AT THE END OF THE YEAR. IF YOU HAVE THE CLOSEST PREDICTION, YOU EARN POINTS: SCORE +=100-(high prediction-low prediction)*2. IF THE FINAL MC FALLS OUTSIDE YOUR HIGH AND LOW PREDICTIONS, YOU LOSE POINTS: SCORE -=50.

Review embargo ends when the countdown ends. Feel free to post predictions and edit them up till that time.

Are you going to go back and score our previous bets or are we starting this now?

AC is a hard one because I usually think critics are way too harsh on it. It seems like with the whole bioware RPG style stuff and the much more expansive ship sections this one should be higher, but you never know.

High: 89
Mid: 86
Low: 82

I'm a little staggered with how low most of the games are.
Low: 75
Middle: 80
High: 85

Yeah as I was saying critics are weirdly harsh on AC. Origins was low 80s and I believe this will score at least a little bit higher, but you never know.

I think I'll go back and calculate scores from previous games but consider that the pre-season. I'm not sure everyone was on the same page with the high and low predictions.

After Origins, I think critics might be ready to give this one a higher score. Fans really loved that game. At the same time, this game could have too many mechanics and feel a little messy.

High: 90
Mid: 84
Low: 78

Much like Origins my first impressions of the game are extremely positive. Absolutely loving the game so far. Hopefully it doesn't go downhill like Origins did towards the end though...

How is the combat compared to Origins? Do you still have the same crafting systems?

Combat is pretty much exactly the same. Haven't seen any crafting yet since I'm getting loads of loot but the materials are still in the game.

Ship stuff is basically exactly Black Flag so far... which is brilliant of course. iirc I think there's more upgrading and customisation to be done here though. I don't think enemy ship variety will be as good though but we'll see.

Upgrades are done nicer than Origins. So you can still upgrade your gears level if you want to but you also get loads of loot so you'll pretty much always have gear at your level anyway, you only want to upgrade any legendaries/ super good stuff you can find. You can also "engrave" every bit of gear you get which is basically equipping a rune for a percentage stat boost.
