Hopefully somebody with some pull reads this. You guys REALLY messed up bye making this event worth gamerscore, along with it factoring into the total of 1250 being the final score after every achievement has been earned. (1230) without the "flying Dutchman achievement. There is huge discussion going on about how your DLCs are being boycotted bye achievement completionists, because the full 100% is no longer attainable. I adore this serious and have religiously followed the series since 1, completed each one along with the DLCS. But I'm sorry to so as long as this stays the norm I will only be purchasing the retail game... Along with many others.

Hi Ubisoft,

I'd like to give a suggestion that if you could add a co-op mode which would be based on survival.
