What's on your mind?
Firstly, I would like to offer a huge thank you to all users who contributed and helped keep this wiki in tip-top shape while I was on my World Tour. Of course, I was semi-active throughout my entire 2-and-a-half month trip, which was good. But of course, you know what I'm about to say: I'M BACK! And boy, the fun that I had while I was gone. But there's no place like home, and I'm sure glad to be back. I'll definitely be going on more trips in the future (work, vacation, etc.) but of course, nowhere near the scale of my World Tour! So once again, I'm officially back, so if you need anything (like always), feel free to leave a message on my wall. Thanks everyone!
UPDATE: Well, today's the day! My World Tour officially starts! I'll be heading to LA until July 14, and then it's off to other countries until September 15, so don't be surprised if I'm not fully active until then. But like I said, I WILL still be around, so don't be afraid to let me know of things, or if you have any questions.
Thank you everybody! As most of you know, I'm very busy in real life managing my own business, a company I founded a few years ago. Good news is, it's more successful than ever, which means more happiness and $$$ for me. The bad news (good news in my eyes, but maybe not in yours) is that on July 7, 2017, I'm leaving New York for a World Tour with my company, and I'll be gone for over two months.
What does this mean? Well, it certainly does not mean that I'm retiring! In fact, I'll still be active on Wikia throughout my whole Tour, periodically of course. So I may not be on Wikia as often, so you could contact the patrollers (who are barely on anyway) if you need anything, they'll probably answer. But even during that duration, you can still contact me and I'll respond within 48 hours (remember, flights are long, "connexion" is sucky sometimes. So, just to clarify, I am NOT retiring, and I WILL still be active on this wiki. If you'd like to see an itinerary of my trip, including where and when I'll be, you can see that below.
During these times at these places, I'll be at various business meetings, conventions (all to expand the business, y'know), as well as touring around, so if you're around and happen to see me (which I doubt), why not say hi! Well, you could probably think of a few reasons not to say hi, but keep those to yourself.
Anyways, have a good one, and if you have any questions, comments, concerns, or death threats, don't be afraid to ask or tell me (well, maybe keep the death threats to yourself, or else you'll be blocked ;)
Lately (although this is not a new phenomenon) I've been noticing more and more people uploading images to this wiki without properly naming them first. Images uploaded with names such as "Screenshot 3-20-17 3:13 PM" or "IMG_63717632_6817828168.jpg" or any other unnamed nonsense title of that sort will no longer be tolerated. Users that upload these images will get a warning, second offense is a 2 week block.
We're tired of these games, people, so just follow the rules and you'll be alright. And once again, I'm not being "mean" or a "jerk", say what you want but I'm just enforcing the rules of this fine wiki. People don't want to follow rules, there has to be consequences. And there has to be someone there to enforce those rules, as I am doing now. Thank you.
Heard about this yet?
There's a new poll on the Wiki, in case you haven't noticed. If you go to the recent activity page and scroll down, you'll see it. There's also a poll on the home page, so vote on those polls! NOTE: If you're having problems voting on the new poll, view it here.
Just to make sure everyone knows (and you can check the Staff page to see for yourself, it's updated), this wiki's patrollers are PrivateSnowballTFC and Thewikiawriter12, not George Chalkias anymore. So contact them if necessary, but remember, you can contact me, Chris6d, this wiki's bureaucrat, if you have any problems, requests, or just want to chat. Thank you.
Thank you to George Chalkias, PrivateSnowballTFC, and Thewikiawriter12 for being nominated for Patroller position. Congratulations to them, but in the end, two out of the three were promoted to Patroller. The results, in detail, are below.
The way the results are calculated is I examine each user's contributions, behavior, editing methods, activity, and some other factors, and monitor them in for a total score, out of 100. In this process, I examined the three nominees. This is a completely, 100% fair and unbiased process that I do myself, and out of the three, Thewikiawriter12 came in last place, meaning that he was not promoted. Sorry.
But just because he didn't get promoted, it doesn't mean he's not good enough. It's just a matter of who gets a higher score, and no matter who got promoted, remember we're all editors on this wiki together, making sure that the best content gets put on this wiki, together.
So, the "winners" are George Chalkias and PrivateSnowballTFC. I'm sure they will make great patrollers! You can see the results chart below. Thank you to everyone here, keep on editing, and be good! If you have any problems or questions, contact me.
By the way, I've noticed lately that PrivateSnowballTFC hasn't been entirely active, but he said that if he becomes patroller, he will monitor the wiki at least once a day and fulfill his job as Patroller. I believe him for now, but if he does not fulfill his job as Patroller, he will be demoted and the position will be given to WikiaWriter. This goes for George as well. Thanks again, all.
Hello everyone! As we know, this wiki's been very busy, and I am now bureaucrat! This means that I can further help the wiki and make it great again (hehe). But I CAN'T do this alone, I'll need some help doing this! That means that we need at least two new patrollers to help out with us on this wiki! Please apply here if you are qualified!
The qualifications are:
- You should be on the wiki for at least 3 months
- You should have at least 200 edits
- You'll NEED to monitor and check the wiki's edits EVERY DAY or 2 DAYS for the next 3 months at least, to help keep up with the activity, and not slack off!
- You'll NEED to reply to messages left on your wall ASAP, for the best service
- You must be quick with reverting vandalism, if there's any
- You must be quick to revert or undo any bad or unconstructive edits, and warn/explain the situation to the user(s) who did the actions
- You must have full understanding of the English language and be able to fix bad grammar edits
- You shouldn't be inactive for more than 5 days in a row, unless it's serious matter. Two weeks without ANY activity will result in an automatic demotion.
- You should have experience with Wikia and being Patrollers on other wikis (Patroller experience not necessarily required, but it would be nice. Wikia knowledge is required)
- You must have a full or very good understanding of Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2, and be able to provide valid information from the two games quickly
So, if you're qualified, please apply here. WE NEED PATROLLERS! Patrollers are rollbacks, just in case you don't know. This wiki is growing very rapidly and activity is increasing rapidly (71.2% over the last month). Of course, we're still not nearly as busy as some other wikis, like the GTA or Fallout Wikis, but the rate it's been lately IS a lot for this wiki!
So I say it again: if you're qualified and meet the standards above, PLEASE APPLY! If enough people apply, we will have a community vote and the top two winners will be promoted to Patroller! THANK YOU EVERYBODY! APPLY!
As we all know, this wiki is going to expand greatly over the next few months. The remaining vehicle infoboxes that have not been updated yet will be updated. There are a number of new features, characters, items, events, locations, vehicles, and more that will have their own pages right here on this wiki. There are a whole slew of new vehicles (including city buses and coach buses, yes!) that will also get their own pages on this wiki.
But this can only be done with your help. So we need as many people to contribute to this wiki as possible. If you know other Wikia users that like Watch Dogs or video games, or may be interested helping out here, get 'em over! We need more users to come here and add info, and add their knowledge, so let's get to it! Thank you everybody!
P.S. I'm probably going to be a bit busier these next few months, since my company is expanding I'm going to be traveling a lot (actually going to Austin, Texas next week, and my 2017 World Tour with my company, wish me luck!) but I'll definitely be around! I am proud to be admin of this fine wiki during this time!
To all people likes and contributes to this wikia by a good mean;
As I see, there is a big problem of vandalisming of this wikia. We should find a way to reduce or (if the Wikia gods helps us) stop the vandalism. From the discussion on Chris6D's page of that 8-time vandal, this topic became critical. We got to do something, because people can't look out for the vandals all the time. I suggest opening this topic again and finding a effective solution to this.
Thank you for your interest,
If you take a look at the recent blocks on the block list, you will see that about 95% of blocked users are anonymous wiki contributors, blocked for vandalism. Now, as we all know, Watch Dogs 2 will be released on November 15, and it's only September and vandalism has already risen a significant amount.
For the safety of this wiki, starting on November 1, 2016, all users will be required to log in in order to edit on this wiki. This will most likely last about 3-5 months, until the activity dies down a bit. Now, this isn't going to stop vandalism 100%, but it will about 95%, so this is for our own good. Thank you.
A new trailer for Watch Dogs 2 was released at TGS 2016. Note: I recommend NOT uploading this to the wiki just yet, because this video here was extrapolated from a livestream, and is therefore not optimal quality. I think we should wait for this to appear on official Ubisoft media.
In it, we find out a little bit more about how Marcus first meets up with DedSec, we get to see Marcus without his hat on, we see another DedSec member other than the four we're already familiar with (albeit only for a few seconds, and he is not given a name or a voice, at least not yet), and we meet a man named Dushan Nemic who is said to have control over ctOS.
As you guys may know, Xaypay and I have created a Watch Dogs fanon wiki, and it's still new, so anyone is welcome to come over there and help out. This is not wiki advertising, it's just something I'd thought I'd point out to be friendly. I'm still going to be active here, on that wiki, and on other wikis as well. So look out for that, and any help is appreciated. Thank you :)
I cant copy paste what are they saying, so here you are:
We got Mr. Facemask Man on the left, some chick wearing what looks like a headscarf on the right, and random dude I really don't care about right now on the far right. I'm gonna be focusing on the first two in this post.
My theory is that Mr. Facemask Man is a dude named Wrench. In the World Reveal video, they discussed some characters, "some are violent, some are more idealistic, some more intellectual" to paraphrase what they said. For each of these three items, they showed Facemask, vagina (yes I'm being a dick and not taking this post too seriously), and Marcus, in that order. In the same reveal, they showed a snippet of script which I believe was an interaction between Marcus and someone named Wrench. Again, I'm paraphrasing here, but I think it went "Fuck that, we're at war with everyone! - Even the puppies? - Yeah, even the goddamn puppies." Assuming that the previous thing I mentioned is accurate - that Facemask is violent, vag is idealistic, and Marcus is intellectual - as well as considering his intimidating appearance, that leads me to believe Mr. Facemask Man is Wrench. I could be wrong, but until proven otherwise, I hold that as my belief.
As for Headscarf Lady, I can't really base anything off of anything here. I'm just gonna pull things out of my ass and make an educated guess that...
A - She might be arabic and/or muslim, why else would she have a headscarf? (This would also coincide with remarks about "the diverse groups of people" or whatever in the San Fran area; yet again, paraphrasing, but that seems to be a common theme I'm observing here.)
B - She's probably gonna be someone's love interest. This of course is not always the case with non-familial female characters associated with the protagonist - look at Clara from the first game - but I'll posit this as a possibility, and notions of love would go hand-in-hand with notions of idealism.
C - She's probably gonna die. Ubisoft likes killing female characters for some weird reason. Mary Reade from Assassin's Creed 4, Clara Lille from the first Watch Dogs, Hope from Assassin's Creed Rogue, Elise from Assassin's Creed Unity...I really hope this isn't the case, because it's an annoying trend in my opinion, but if she ends up being a cool cat, I wanna see her character through to the end of the game.
That's my theory on those two characters. How aboot you, eh?
I called it, guys, I stated back on an old forum that Watch Dogs 2 was going to take place in San Francisco! Give ya boy some love!
Some time not too long ago, an actor/model named Cort King posted an interesting picture to his Instagram page. In the picture, he wrote...
Had a blast doing motion capture work as the lead character in a new video game series! =)
This was then followed by one of the hashtags being #watchdogs2. The picture in question?
Cort has since made his profile private (ostensibly because of the hordes of people checking this photo out), but there's a cached version of his profile that includes this post here.
What's my personal opinion on the matter?
Well, first off, the hipster glasses are a bit off-putting to me. I hope you can either remove them or swap them out for other kinds of glasses. Beyond that, looks like a promising character based on the design here. I think the backpack might also lead to something interesting as well.
Secondly, I'm actually a bit saddened that we most likely won't be seeing Aiden Pearce again. He wasn't my favorite character, but I feel the backlash against his personality was a bit unjust (I understood him, personally) and I would've loved to have seen the devs at least give him a second chance. This doesn't necessarily mean Aiden is gone forever, though, we just won't be playing as him in this game.
Lastly, I'm not familiar with Cort King, but a brief Google search was indicative to me that this guy has a certain flair that Aiden's actor, Noam Jenkins, simply didn't show off during the first game. I wish him the best of luck mo-capping this new character, and I have confidence that he'll deliver a stellar performance.
