Burnt out on gears 4

(XpL Ultrax) #12

I play Gears 4 almost every day with friends. Sometimes I have around 20-25 friends of my friend list playing Gears. It is easy to stack up then.

I just love Gears 4. I am excited for the new season tomorrow, so I can grind for that diamond 5 again.

I only play Koth, which is by far the best gamemode. Oh and I am playing 2v2 sometimes. Definitely gonna play that alot in the new season when Foundation Mid will be in the game.

Since Apex Legends is out, less friends are playing Gears. But still sometimes over 10


Yeah I get you. Gears is still a pretty freaking fantastic game, even though I like to bash it😂
It is literally the only game I play.

Yup… same here…

I think we all have periods where we feel burnt out. For me at least Gears is the only franchise where I might feel burnt out for a few days or even a week but that desire always comes back. Gears has a sticking power with me that always makes me want to come back.

My recommendation is to take a week off or so and see if your fire comes back.


That’s a big reason why I only really play on the weekends. I find that if I go all week without playing it, I enjoy it a lot more come Friday night😁

Yeah, I love playing Gears. Maybe it’s a kind of comforting nostalgia, but I just feel happy playing multiplayer with music on, casually murdering dudes up and down the map. I almost play on auto-pilot, in a haze of contentment.

But certain aspects tilt me, like selfish teammates, toxic enemies, and teammates who (I’m not kidding) spend the game (Ranked matches) practicing wall-bouncing in empty hallways instead of helping.

And the longer time goes on, the more this becomes the majority of the game, sadly. I still play and still have fun; when I’m in any kind of a mood, Gears is sort of my therapy. But I feel that’s coming to an end with Gears 4 now.

Hopefully Gears 5, with an influx of fresh players, will revive it enough to keep me playing.

It is way more fun to stack up with friends and completely demolish the other players.

Way more fun than playing solo

That explains the aimbot from last night. You’re a classy fella.

I only started playing when gow3 was released and I’ll say it’s much more fun than playing 5 really sweaty gotta get that diamond lancer spraying lagging tryhards. I really hope Gears 5 does away with ranked or at least make another play list so I can play my koth and tdm without having to spend 30 minutes where everyone is so worried about their ranks no one moves the whole match.

I read this thread yesterday and he admitted to using an aimbot. But now the last few comments in the thread (including that one) have disappeared.

Was he seriously using aimbot? Why has he not been banned!?

*not yet

Aha, you might get lucky and TC & Microsoft might hardware ban you, have fun with that :grimacing::v:

(III EnVii III) #31

Like I said,

You might get lucky,

(III EnVii III) #33

He just said “we’ve done a bunch of that before” - meaning they have hardware banned and can/will do it again.

Most likely for people who keep on making multiple accounts to cheat with.

It’s well within Microsoft’s ability to do this.

I’ve been playing ACOdyssey for the past two months and am enjoying every second of it, I do play Gears couple times a week but mostly get met with disappointment, either from quitters, connections or bad RNG in packs (can’t believe they didn’t improve odds even now, 2 years later, it takes a cold heart to squeeze the ones that support you till the end, but TC is proudly doing it).

I’d say maybe check for some other games you might like and give Gears a break, it helps a lot, I played Gears 3 so much until I got disgusted by it to the point I never want to install it again, memories are enough, so I’m trying to avoid that with Gears 4 but RNG is the devil, not sure how much patience I have left in me for their shenanigans tbh

(xAlphaXPrimex) #36

Well that is ok, and it actually makes sense, the game has been out for awhile now and with gears 5 coming soon you wont be burnt out for too much longer!

(I Pwn Everybody) #37

Yeah… If Jose_De_Juan is using aimbot then he deserves a hardware ban.

And if he admitted it on here, there is absolutely no excuse for TC/Microsoft not to give it to him.

And, honestly, the arrogance he’s displaying in response to the whole thing only makes him deserve it more.

Buddy if you’re just NOW getting burnt out then yeah I would say you’re the only one. Otherwise take a number :stuck_out_tongue:

I took a long break from this game. Only so many quit penalties and bullet sponges a man can take. Hopefully Gears 5 brings everyone back.

If you (as in anyone) are feeling burnt out, mix up the modes you play. I’m going to be playing Escalation a fair bit this season after ignoring it last season.

Also if after 2 games of Hill, I’m or the game is not feeling “right” I load up Gears 3 and play that all night instead . :+1:


Hahahah! I think we all know that at this point😂
