It’s just devoid of talent.
It was actually decent before this clunky tuning, then people left & match making lost the player base to match appropriately.
I know I left & so did 40 of my friends who played daily.
Sad to see my friends going from playing gears 5 24/7 to marvels avengers, apex, rainbow six, and as for me I’m playing phantasy star universe.
All that’s left is the newer players , few die hards,& esports wanna be’s.
So there’s a huge gap of talent.
That’s just the blunt truth.
What happens when you flesh out there core of the PvP community to appease esports.
TC doesn’t realize the value of the middle ground consistent gamer who just plays for fun.
As a result you get these terrible matchmaking problems.
Nobody cares though.
They’ll just praise the new tuning & regurgitate what TC’s been saying.
Usually the newer players who never touched ranked or the esport wanna be’s that enjoy this tuning.
But the PvP warrior has left this scene.
Maybe gears 6 will be better for the PvP scene but there isn’t really a care to better the tuning or hear out the PvP warriors so this is what you get.
You’d think top ranked players would know what’s best for ranked but some esports try hard has more weight in a mode they don’t even care for.
Esports has completely different rules than the average ranked match.
If ranked warriors wanted to play UMG we would but we don’t care about that at all , yet, they force ideology on us like it’s universal & makes sense.
I’m glad match making is terrible.
This needs to get worse so TC can value the ranked warrior & if they don’t so be it the game will suffer.
I’m not desperate to play. I won’t justify the tuning to validate why I should play. I simply won’t play it. If I’m not having fun that’s all that matters. Doesn’t matter if I’m still a master player in this tuning or who I’ve beat. Bottom line is I’m not investing time in something that doesn’t excite me.
Just stack at this point, match making will be like this for as long as TC wants to be stubborn.
In the end that’s on TC though. As a player , yes I love Gears but life isn’t gears. Only played because I was having fun & as result a lot of players are just leaving until further notice.
It’s a bigger problem than just finding quality matches because there is no quality. You get what you can find at this point.
