2v2 gnashers sponging


(GearsVeteranPro) #1

just recently i noticed my shots appears to do 90-99% damage and then i get 1 shot gibbed not even up close

i die around corners as if my enemy shoot through walls or i take damage two seconds later

it’s a cluster

my ping is sitting at a constant 30ms on a gigabit internet hard wired in with nothing else running on the network

very frustrating

Yeah, that’s a big reason why I just don’t like to play 2v2. The sponging is made a lot worse by it being a comp playlist. I think it would be better if it was a core one

Tell us all something we don’t know about how bad the game is.

Competitive tuning is an unholy demon, in a sombrero, that’s creeped into the Franchise as of Gears 4.


(DAVID THE CLOWN) #6

Sorta like how the demonic entity of raisins crept into people’s diet. Both are detestable, and should be exterminated.

Maybe TC should make Spongebob a craftable character.

Oh! Mr Krabs is a must!

Can you imagine this laugh after every kill? Very rage-inducing indeed. :smiling_imp:

the pc version takes too long to load the store


(T0NY HAYABUSA) #10

They already have him in the game. granted the skin isn’t called spongebob and isn’t yellow and goofy


(SM0KIN D4BS) #11

Takes long to load store regardless of console or pc

Core 2v2s would be horrible.

I feel like boxes just plays bad, but I did a round of Foundation 2V last night and it was great. The game is sponge city right now. So expect that no matter what mode. The connections are just plain bad for me. There are huge gaps in the animations so I’m dead before the player even goes into their move on my screen.

The only advice I can give is to remember 2V is not core tuning.

That first match we played on KotH Foundation was ridiculously bad. Love when one of the players on sponge city send all 5 of us a message calling us “trash” when we almost won against them. I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone eat as much as those guys did.


(Me0wMix CatFood) #15

Yea, when I see that happening I urge everyone to get a strong cross going. When the connections are good I’ll run gnasher only in KOTH but if I’m getting BS’d it’s lancer time.

Funny story, late last night we got a squad together and invited a guy that we’ve seen on the enemy side a lot. At one point I told him, “you go for nades, I should cross from balcony because my Lancer is probably the strongest”. He said, “Yea, when I go against you guys you’re the only one I have to watch out for because you’ll down me as soon as I come out of cover.”
I felt both good and bad about hearing that. :smile:

It’s pretty whack that connections can cause your weapons to be so random isn’t it? Tonight maybe it’s my Lancer that works and yours doesn’t. There’s no consistency other than it’s incredibly inconsistent.


(DAVID THE CLOWN) #17

Lol. Looks like I missed a lot last night😂


(F Off My Guns) #18

Everyone just misses their shots.
Absolutely zero fault to the game or its netcode. Just missed shots. Trust me, I’m like a Gears expert.


(SM0KIN D4BS) #21

Yeah if only that were true… explain 100% but only downed…explain point blanks being 9% explain 3 shots hit and bleed but u only really hit once according to server… nobody is Missing there shots that much trust and believe there is a real issue in game


(Krylon Blue) #22

I don’t think you caught the sarcasm in there. :joy:

Also, I wouldn’t say no one is missing that many shots. There are some really bad players out there, lol.
