"Would like if you check this out and RT it to @CoalitionGears + @OctusTC Gears 5 is currently broken for ingame ranks. I have gone from Diamond to Bronze, this video explains what’s happening. I would really like an answer on this one. Thanks. "
“2018 gears vet” haha not even 2006. Also, Notice how I have 100 ping and most of your kills were aim assist. Weird fellow you are. I have the game record and 3 times you headshot me around a wall but I cant be bothered to upload it to “prove” myself online, but I’m not going to blame you, that’s the the poor game we are playing.
The game just has it built in unless you play escalation, I’ll show you a clip from the game I played vs You. Basically if it’s near them, the bullet hits. The games awful, factor that in with 100 ping, you cant do much. Almost every kill you got on me, I was around the wall or already ducked. Normally you can get away with it on 20 ping, but when you play on 100+ you just die.
I uninstalled anyway, this game is awful and broken.
Well, this is common. A lot of terrible Gears players get lucky with the assist stuff. Kill you behind cover. Kill you with a solid miss while eating your shots. I had great ping ever time I played. And in some matches would just get destroyed by people shooting around corners and missing me. Just the state of this game. I was hoping they would maybe fix because I had some great matches but am sure I was on the lucky side those games. Cannot prove I was not. And winning does not feel like winning when you are being assisted and did not do it yourself. Gears is just so unbalanced and awful like that. I see a scoreboard with one team with solid pings and the other team with worse pings. And also realize that those pings probably went up into the hundreds or higher for those player. If I was on the winning team I would just assume it was typical Gears and I was given the advantage. HUGE reason I am totally done with Gears 5 mp.
I agree with the discussion on ranked being broken, but the segment at the end of the video lost me. The accuracy of kill cams has been debunked, and so you don’t really have any way of knowing what your opponent’s aim looked like when he fired. This was a scenario where split seconds were the difference between a hit and a miss, so latency between opponent, server, and you could have accounted for why you were downed when it looked like you shouldn’t have been. It’s definitely a problem that there can be such a big difference between the two players’ perspectives, but there’s no indication that this was due to “aim assist.”
I watched the part twice. The guy who downed him, his reticle wasn’t even on him. On top of that, look at the blood spray. It was behind him. Then on the kill cam the bullet spray was off to the left of his reticle. He should not have been downed there.
