So for some reason today i’ve been able to find FFA matches very quickly, so i’ve been taken advantage of this.
Probably the most fun i’ve had in Gears 5 to date, but after a 14 game FFA win streak it got me thinking.
In Quickplay you get Bonus XP for consecutive matches played up to 5 total. Rewarding only XP is fine for casual matches as their casual and not competitive. But i don’t see a reason to not add this feature to ranked play but in the form of GP, you could award extra GP for winning games consecutively up to 5 matches total like Quickplay.
Each consecutive win would award 100 GP extra up to a maximum of 5 wins totalling 500 GP once maxed.
If you exit to the main menu this bonus will reset, only if you press Y or whatever key on PC to continue searching will this bonus remain in place.
The bonus GP isn’t anything drastic so it wouldn’t break the system in any way, but reward teams or individual players who are good enough to progress faster and get to the rank that they should be.
This would also benefit lower skilled players so their not swamped by sweats trying to progress as often.
I think this also helps mitigate times when the other team quit out and you’re punished because you’re not able to gain enough GP because there’s nobody left to kill. The GP win bonus would make this less punishing.
Thoughts? or is there something i’m missing that would make this a really bad idea?
Also, not related to this but thought i’d mention, ranking up doesn’t award any Gears Coins currently.
You can see by these 2 images i have the same amount of Gears Coins despite ranking up.
Oh and i’ve completely Jinxed myself by saying i’ve been able to find matches quickly today.
I’ve been searching while writing this and i literally can’t find a game anymore
