Raiding in Valhalla is kinda bad in prospective, lemme explain:
1) If you want to do a frontal assault, raiding is fine, but why do you have use it even if you want to do an infiltration? It is pointless to do an infiltration if you will later ruin it in the worst conceptual way.
2) You have, by some degree, have to cooperate with the AI during a raid, and this can be considered slow or even risky (I personally lost an entire raid and some minutes of gameplay because the AI decided to NOT help me with a chest)
3) WHY WHOULD A VIKING NEED HELP TO OPEN A BIG UNLOCKED CHEST?!?!

According to history, there was a rumored Templar fortress in the city of Acre that was essentially a heavily fortified coin and treasure depository. Historians and archaeologists are currently researching where this fortress was located within the city. Assassin's Creed I took place in Acre (among many other cities), and I was wondering if the fortress was in the game.
Here is a source I recommend watching about the supposed fortress in Acre. This is a Youtube video discussing an episode of National Geographic's Lost Cities with Albert Lin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6ynN2AQIHQ
Albert Lin used LiDAR technology to uncover where the Templar fortress might have been in Acre.
So I guess my question is: was this fortress, or something like it, in the original AC game? If it wasn't, do you think a remastered version of AC1 should include the fortress?
Spoiler warning! Here are some my theories on what we can see in "The Siege of Paris" DLC:
Why Eivor decided to abandon England? I have many theories, maybe the DLC will bring us many answers to that question but why, it could be a Piece of Eden that the Order of Ancients is looking for and Eivor decided to escape from the Order of Ancient.
In Paris, at the Roman ruins we can probably see some Bureaus that were founded during the Roman Empire, and by Bayek and Aya, there we can see on How the legacy of Bayek and Aya leaved a mark on the Assassins, and how the Hidden-Ones expanded from Egypt to all across the Roman Empire and beyond , but also we are going to see little bit of the History of the French Brotherhood of Assassins, from Roman Gaul to the 5th Century.
And on the Order of Ancients, probably the French Rite of the Templar Order was founded by Roman members of the Templar Order during the times of the Rise of the Roman Empire, and how many Frankish nobles decide to ally with the Order of Ancients including the Carolingian Dynasty, this the reason on why King Charles the Fat could be a member of the Order of Ancients.
A new Hidden-One will join Eivor and her Raven Clan during the Siege of Paris, this Hidden-One could be related to Bayek and Aya as one of their descendants or one of Layla's ancestors.
And more that Eivor was the Founder of the Assassin Brotherhoods in Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Iceland and Finland.
And at the end, probably Rollo will join the Order of Ancients and probably of the Norman Rite of the Templar Order, because I think that the Historical Rollo join the Order of Ancients.
What do you think? Do you that we are going to see more of Bayek and Aya's story? And on How the Scandinavian Brotherhood was born? And a look to Layla's Family History?

Seeing as the Order of Ancients was founded during the Armana period of Ancient Egypt (1330s BC) there's still almost 1,000 years of their existence we don't know much about. How would you feel about games set in other settings between 1330BC and 432BC like Ancient Babylon, The Persian Empire, maybe the Bronze Age Collapse or even early Chinese dynasties

You know what would have been a cool feature for Odyssey and Valhalla, be able to take at least three other people out into the wilderness with you while you're doing your quest or just hunting in general like Odyssey you can have a lieutenant and two crew members and Valhalla you can take up to three Vikings with you
