Being immersed offers a better sense of escapism. If im sneaking into a base I dont need to see pop up messages or dead bodies glowing. Ubi is assuming every player is some ADD loot wh0re.
Couldn't have said it better my self
This too. I've already saw suggestions from others on the official Ubi forums for what should be in a future patch. And one of those was HUD options. To be able to toggle off the minimap, or the pop up windows and msgs. I hate them myself.
