To participate in the PSN Champions Community Event you have two simple and fun tasks:

  1. Play our new free 1v1 Mode - Bout of Honor

  2. Post your feedback in THIS THREAD any time starting today thru July 12th, 2013. Feedback must be deemed constructive. Spam will not be accepted.


We'll record all PSN ID’s who leave constructive feedback in this thread and award them with a digital download code for the “Mark of the Gods” Pack the following week via XMB on PSN.

 

7/22 UPDATE: 

 

Thanks again to everyone for their excellent feedback! :smileyhappy:

 

Apologies on the delay to getting the codes out! Please expect them via XMB by the start of August. 



Your feedback is sincerely appreciated, thank you!

 

 

BOUT OF HONOR DETAILS:

 

Our latest update featuring the highly anticipated 1v1 Mode, Bout of Honor, is now available worldwide! This FREE update also comes with a new 4-player map and a number of  multiplayer fixes. 

 

In Bout of Honor two warriors will put their lives and reputations on the line to achieve the best of seven rounds in this strictly 1v1 Mode. Bout of Honor is a true contest of skill with no chests, fountains, or world weapons to aid you. This mode also disables relics and allows for a Champion’s Magic to regenerate over time. Beware, my brothers in arms, Magic generates slowly over time so use it sparingly. If you are careless you may end up like the Prophet Castor with your head underneath another Warrior’s boot. 

Along with this brand new mode come four new maps specifically crafted for Bout of Honor: 

  • Canyons of Kirra
  • Chamber of the Flame
  • Landing at Delos
  • Streets of Sparta

The best part is that these features are all FREE, right now! Praise be to the Gods for hearing our cries! The team at Sony Santa Monica would like to give a special thanks to the thousands of Champions worldwide supporting the team, and playing God of War: Ascension multiplayer.

I thought a lot more fun 1v1, but now it's using magic to stay all the time it was perfect because it has a lot of people that just kept calling with magic, but it was well balanced, not only enjoyed a bit of camera you should get a little but tucked away the rest was perfect, parabens Santa Monica continue surprising us

I love the 1v1 mode guys, 1 thing I noticed is the ability to cancel an I frame with the maul of poseidon. I feel that this maul is a little unbalanced for the mode. I also wish there was a way to see your opponents load before the game started. also just played one where with a bit of lag a parry can be more of your enemy then your firned. it kept me in parry state while he was still swinging after my sucsesfull parry.

----------------------------------------------------------------

"Streets of Sparta" runs at sub 30 FPS at all time.
This kills some of the immersiveness and makes it harder to hit confirm a couple of attacks!

----------------------------------------------------------------

I really like "Landing at Delos" it has a little space that enables ring-outs,
It gives the stage some more "flavor" then just a change of scenery!

----------------------------------------------------------------

Lower the countdown timer in the lobby!
you don't need 55sec to change gear!
Or add a "ready" or a "rematch" option to improve the speed/flow of matches!

Remember, the game is about kicking butts and taking names.
Not waiting in lobby's and rolling thumbs Smiley Wink

----------------------------------------------------------------

Matches can be finished in under 5 seconds!
5 seconds X 4 matches = 20 seconds!
The fastest you can play a match right after another requires a total of ~120 seconds.
I.E You spend ~76% of the time waiting, not playing!
IMO it would be nice if we at least had two more rounds to fight!

----------------------------------------------------------------

A new combo reset "exploit" has been discovered in the new patch!
By slamming them against the wall with jump Triangle in air with a sword and then press Circle!
It only works at certain angles and against a wall that does not bouns of the enemy!

----------------------------------------------------------------

A camera bug noticed at "Landing at Delos" stage!:
http://www.twitch.tv/crimson4649/c/2569909

----------------------------------------------------------------

The timer after the first round is bugged and sort of starts at 29 sec, instead of 30
Some testing reveled that the beginning of the first round in BoH starts ~0.5 seconds later then the rest of the rounds.

----------------------------------------------------------------

In my opinion BoH should be placed first in the "Game Mode" list,
so it would be: 1v1, 2v2, 4v4! Not: 2v2, 4v4, 1v1!
Its just more logical this way!

The mode is nice! On one of the maps you can get rung out and the rq kinda ruins it..

This mode seems really good but the Streets of Sparta runs slowly.

Me and my friend fight each other only as the rest of the fixes seem to not work for us. Still getting killed easily D:

To be honest I've not been on too much recently, but this would kind of call me back to go and try this mod, looks fun, looks good, I'll try it out in the morning for sure though
