I thought you loved Absolution! :open_mouth:

I do, which is why I must excise the bad levels :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: I think in the Abs heat too I was fairly critical of Shaving Lenny

Dw, when stuff like Blackwater comes up I’ll be loading every single one of my points into it

Fair dos. Will be interesting from this forward to see which games benefit and which games suffer.

I generally think older games will be at a disadvantage due to the number of people that have played them. But perhaps people like Ochoa and IlikeHitman will be able to preserve some of the better older levels

Unfortunately I do think for the most part Abs is doomed :weary:

Will be interesting. When we did the last mission championship, before Patient Zero had been announced, some Absolution missions did make it through to the end, and
Invitation to a Party from Hitman 2

won the championship. Be very interesting to see how this championship compares to the last.

I don’t think that’s the only problem though.I was actually thinking about which missions I would like to see in the finals a few days ago and I realised that the WOA triology has so many awesome missions I love that it will be really difficult to save older missions tbh and there will be a though fight for the ones which actually manage to qualify.:disappointed:
@Silvereyes How many missions will be in the final by the way?I know there were 20 last time,but we have two more games now,so maybe there will be a few more this time…:grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

not sure if my plus to Shaving Lenny was out of spite for the death of Chongqing, or how much fun I had on my first playthrough compared to Fight Night

Eh, well, 20. In the old format, I think each game’s heat was roughly around half, whereas this time it was usually abit above half. More qualifying missions and 2 more games ontop. In the old game, it was 2 semi-finals with 20 missions each, which led to a final with 20 missions. Here, we have 4 quarter-finals which have 17 missions each, which will lead to 2 semi-finals with 20 missions each, and finally a grand final with 20 missions.

You really can feel the bitterness.

King of Chinatown and Blackwater Park might actually have pretty decent chances in their respective legs… Especially the former.

Especially the latter :no_mouth: I’m not saying Abs won’t have some good maps through. I just meant the quantity of Abs maps making it through to the finals will be the smallest I expect

I know, I see it the same way. And as for BP, while I agree it´s the strongest contender from Abs missions to advance, I feel like it has stronger competition than KoC :-/

Get this sorry excuse of a level out of here.

Who thought having a tunnel base map with H2SA’s detection system was a good idea? There is literally no way to walk by some soldiers except by ducking into those little alcoves and waiting for them to pass but even then it barely works.

A stationary target isn’t bad if the path to them is fun and challenging but Tubeway is just terrible. To rub salt in the wound, the level is one of the longest in the entire series dragging out the torture for no reason.
