Had a fun thing happen - while doing a dagger mission I triggered a huge ghul spawn. Turned out one of the guys in the area was a captain and they killed him while I just watched and took credit.

I've hit 49% completion, which is about 15 hours in. Tilt, I've definitely seen some of the issues you've seen, I just haven't let them get to me much and I've just kind of learned to work with them. Certain surfaces I recognize as being unclimbable, I've gotten pretty good at jumping off places rather than trying to scale/drop down, if I get caught on a rock I immediately stop and figure the best way to detach myself, etc. Totally with on you Caragors, although I know there is an ability that will make this less of an issue once I get it, and I generally make a point of getting to high ground if a Caragor appears so I can mount it. In general, if things get messy I run and get out of sight because that gives me the advantage. A lot of the captains can be insta-killed from stealth and it's also fun to run around and set them on fire if they are afraid of explosions. I also make good use of the bow. Once you get the shadow step kill the amount of havoc you can set loose on an area is incredible fun - explosions, Caragors, flies, stealth kills, bow kills, and flashing around like crazy.

With regards to the bodyguards, unless I am mistaken what they mean is to kill the captains that are directly linked
(the glowing line you see on Sauron's Army page when you highlight the Warchief) to the Warchief before killing the Warchief. I think if you don't do this, they will be promoted to Warchief if you die before killing all the Warchiefs. This is what I did and I got the achievement for killing the bodyguards of two Warchiefs before killing them.

I met a captain called something "the complainer" and he really did complain a lot smile

I'm having fun with the game but I'm very much torn because it exhibits a lot of the characteristics of open world games that have started to bug me. Namely using the open world as a crutch in place of level design. Really all of the missions I have done so far just ask you to enter one open world area and kill someone. Sometimes you have to use stealth, and sometimes they purposefully place the enemies where you can do a ledge takedown or some other move on them for a bonus, but overall they built a bunch of strongholds, placed enemies in them, and then marked specific ones to be killed. This kind of design has grown very tiresome for me.

I much prefer when open world is balanced with levels that require you to do specific kinds of platforming or create set pieces, and the open world is available for side quests. Arkham City/Origins was pretty good about this, Far Cry 3, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood as well. Infamous 2, not an Ubi game surprisingly, is probably the worst offender on the other end of the spectrum.

I do appreciate that you are only required to unlock the towers for fast travel, and they are not blocking off areas like the traditional Ubisoft design (AC, Watchdogs).

I also wish that I could just work on story missions and only go do side quests when I needed to get buffed up, but I want the super sword/bow/dagger!

Leo, thanks for avenging my death. I have returned the favor.

BTW, this game is really bad for gamer ADD.

Heh yep!  I took a screen shot. How did you know it was me?  Do you get a notification?

Yeah, when it signed on it said I had been avenged by Leo346776 and then there was a mission on my map that said I could avenge Leo6788655.

Me playing this game: I'll stop at 10pm after this mission. After killing this captain. After getting this artifact. After finishing this hunting challenge. After doing this bow challenge. Oops it's 11:30.

Oh, I went after this one guy who was giving me a hard time and the guy came back again at level 20! So I kicked his ass again. I wonder if he's dead now?

FCC votes to abolish NFL blackout rule.  I think this is a great thing.

Does this mean they have to comply immediately?

On NPR they said they are still free to make deals with teams/broadcasters locally so it may just be put back in place that way. It's just not enforceable at the Federal level.

Is there a
Spoiler for Hiden:
balrog
waiting back there to become a captain in Sauron's army? That might make things interesting.

Game is fun so far, but I hope there is some actual level design in there akin to the tombs in AC Brotherhood or the missions in Arkham City. If it's all "go to place in open world and kill stuff" I'll be kind of bummed.

Picked up 3 Crucible bounties - 5 Skirmish, 5 Salvage and win 3 crucible matches. At the end of 10 matches I was 1-9, and the one win happened within a few seconds of the start of that match when the opposing team dropped out.

Those modes can be so frustrating with no communication. And getting the heavy ammo is so important, especially in Salvage.

The 6- was comfortable in-pocket and in-hand, except for one handed use.  Browsing through some web pages and some system menus, it was immediately apparent that my thumb could no longer reach everywhere on the screen like it can on my 4s. 

So I'm left a bit torn between getting the 5s or the 6- this fall.  I guess I'll likely get the 6- and just get used to the different handling.

Something that I thought was a bug but turned out to be a feature is that a double tap (not press) of the home button pulls the page down so you can get to something out of reach.
