What's New in Version 1.0.2
Awesomely good but has some flaws
I love how I can link my ACBF game here. I never cared for the fleet system in the game itself because I would never remember to go back and get my money it made or whatever. This app helps me make the money I need to keep my ship in game up and running and also acts as a handy map for me when I need quick look at where I am. It's easy to understand and simple to play.
Some flaws that I wish could be fixed are the hit topic screen that never updates by keeps telling me there is new stuff to read. I guess it must have been more active when it first came out, but it's pretty dead now and I have no real way of knowing if the one and only event that involves Black Flag (sense the other two notices are just a welcome to the app and an add for the other phone app about pirates) is even still going on. Also, sometimes when I check it, it will switch languages from English to Russian to German. I was hoping the app would update with news on the community events that were in the game, but it doesn't seem to happen that way.
Lost ALL my money and ships/Won't connect
**Update** I had been building up tons of money with my fleet, and then when I signed into the game on my Xbox, ALL of that money (in the range of $143,000) was gone, as well as my entire fleet. Now, when I sign in to look at my fleet on either the app or game, I see the same thing. I have sent two messages to Ubisoft support now, with NO replies (even had to resend one because it was lost). ALL of my fleet, my progress with it, and the money I saved up is gone, yet my progress in the actual game and world map is still there.
So this has affected my saved game on the Xbox! I worked hard for that Man of War, damnit!
Until this is resolved, I am going to send complaints regularly.
I can also attest to a lot of the other complaints in these reviews, the game crashing, server being down, can't sign back in due to 'another instance of the app,' still no push notifications (even though the companion for Unity has it), and I'm still having issues getting it to connect to my xbox.
I'm excited about this app, especially if push notifications are added, but it will not connect to my xbox one, so it's pretty much useless.
If there were some support, faq, or something to at least give me a clue as to why, I'd appreciate it.
I would give this app 5 stars, if I were able to use it.
Excellent addition to the game
The map feature is cool, but the ability to conduct fleet naval missions is the real gem. This allows you to run naval missions (make money) anywhere you may be with your mobile device. It was nice to occasionally check on these throughout the day, while at work, and then get into the game in the evening and collect my reales. This also meant that I could spend more console time playing AC4 and leave the fleet stuff for when I was away. The fleet interface is nearly identical to the in-game version, making the integration seamless. So many game-related apps are a huge waste of time, this is not one of them. Ubisoft hit the mark on this one.
