  1. Riding on the crest of the Wildlands Wave wasn't enough, Breakpoint has bombed. One site has reported that Week 1 physical sales* are only 20% of what the Wildlands sales achieved, that's a 1/5 fraction, but it's a little early for sales comparisons. Critic Reviews are damming PCGamer https://www.pcgamer.com/ghost-recon-breakpoint-review/ Games Radar https://www.gamesradar.com/uk/ghost-recon-breakpoint-review/ Gamespot 4/10 VG247 1/5 Eurogamer - Avoid PC gamer 40/100 Metro GameCentral 6/10 Push Square 6/10 Gameblog 6/10 * If anyone can find the digital sales, link 'em up.
  2. Sorry it’s not harsh. By every metric that matters, including those used by ubi, it bombed. It bombed so bad people went back to Wildlands. Only by recognising the significant issues with Breakpoint can the series have any chance of moving forward. Ubi are trying to rectify the issues with Breakpoint but for me the success of this series will depend on the next game. Yep it sounds harsh, but it is what it is.

    Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed

    No problem, we'll get you going...
  6. I've just had a quick run around and there's some neat new features in Breakpoint. Game looks beautiful and when you "merge" into a bush, very cool feature. There's a tonne of new elements, I'll need to run through the tutorials, like Profile cards...? The story has me hooked already so I'm looking forward to playing the campaign. Ansel for screenshots doesn't seem supported yet...? My default male character had a female out-of-puff breathing noise, and there were some strange bright textures around a hideaway entrance. Looking forward to playing some more for sure..
  7. The head of Ubisoft has come out with a startling reveal of just how badly Breakpoint has done, and the massive knock on effect in a statement released on MarketScreener. That's in excess of 400 million Euro lost. This massive dropping of target is attributed mainly to Breakpoint performance. Translation : We released BP too quick on the heels of Wildlands. We introduced new gameplay features in Breakpoint that failed to meet the grade. It's a pretty strong and open statement, but it is also does not go far enough for some. It's good to hear that they acknowledge the voices and concerns of a "significant" part of the consumer base, but it's what they do with it now, or even the next GR, that really matters.
  8. The correct mod order is shown in the required mods txt file in the download. REQUIRED MODS GOLDEN TRIANGLE MISSIONS - PLACE IN MISSIONS FOLDER OF GOLDEN TRIANGLE FOLDER Download, install and activate the mods in the following order. MP1 (Desert Siege) MP2 (Island Thunder) YOTM (http://www.ghostrecon.net/files2/index.php?act=view&id=298) WoW3.1 (http://www.ghostrecon.net/files2/index.php?act=view&id=178) + PATCH (http://www.ghostaholic.com/page.php?id=408) Golden Triangle (http://files.filefront.com/Golden+Trianglerar/;7870198;;/fileinfo.html)
  9. I actually have Golden Triangle replays of mission attempts by Alpha Squad here if you want them.
  10. GR, DS, IT, then the mod.
  11. I also admit I never finished it but enjoyed every mission i played.
  12. Yes, it is incredible I agree. I never ever thought we would come so far for so long - although I do remember Jester (founding member and contributor in 2001), he said to me once ... Turns out, he was correct!
  13. It's worth reading it all, but for me - this... One of the key elements of our vision for Ghost Recon is to immerse our fans in a gritty and authentic military experience. In line with this vision and the feedback we received, we are working on a more radical and immersive version of Ghost Recon Breakpoint. We also want to let you tailor your experience to the way you want to enjoy the game, since freedom of choice has always been part of the Ghost Recon DNA.
  14. Haha, weird stuff! Fantastic mod though.
  15. You could apply that to the whole game, not just the drones. Wildlands with new maps, another great story, and some "new" features from previous GR games that have been lost pver the years, and a better gunsmith. THAT'S ALL THEY HAD TO DO.

    Screenshot Slideshow

    It doesn't matter if you are on Ubi forums or Reddit - there are more Wildlands screenshots still being posted than Breakpoint. Wildlands is a great game.

    The devil is in the details

    But there is - cars and mobile phones being the most obvious but the list goes on. Pick any product in your kitchen. There has become a terrible complacency in the gaming world and it is unacceptable. Products with terrible issues are released on the basis of day one patches and regular updates. What about actually having a game ready before launch? Launching before it is ready is corporate decision based on many factors, release window competition, budgets, etc etc - but if you choose to release a product that the dev team tell you is not ready, you should expect to be pulled up for it by the people who line your pockets. And please, please do not tell me games development is difficult - yes it is complex, more than I can imagine, but it's no more difficult than any other complex multi million pound product - also remembering these are one and zeros developers are dealing with, not physical products which brings a while other range of difficulties.

    The devil is in the details

    The timeline for Breakpoint was really short, especially if you compare it to previous timelines - it just came out too quick on the heels of Wildlands. So yeh, a bit more time spent on getting BP ready would certainly have help reduce these silly bugs, which would have been one less thing for people to get annoyed about.
  19. This gets said a lot. And I don't think it gets said enough.
  20. Yeh but they never fixed the first aid bug so my guy has been critically injured for 2 days, no play for me.
  21. Huh, I never knew this!? The missions UI seem a whole lot more confusing than in Wildlands, not just different, which would be ok, but very different and confusing interface.
  22. You know that thing where during daylight hours in game, you walk inside a house, and it goes dark for a few seconds, to mimic your eyes adjusting? In PvP its screwed up, so at dusk, when you can hardly see anything, if you go inside a shack, and look outside, it's like daylight again, and you can spot the other team easy!
