Gears 5 crashed for me three days in a row (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) while playing ranked KOTH.
1st time it crashed (on Friday) was moments before a ranked KOTH game was about to end.
It threw me back to the Xbox home menu.
By the time I could launch Gears again, I couldn’t rejoin the game as the match had already ended.
When it crashed the 2nd time (on saturday), when I logged into the game, it gave me a ‘Ranked penalty’ message. Thankfully, it allowed me to rejoin the game.
When it crashed the 3rd time (on sunday), when I logged into the game, it again gave me a ‘Ranked penalty’ message. Thankfully, it allowed me to rejoin the game.
I noticed this recurring pattern.
The game crashes once everyday specifically while playing ranked KOTH.
Ranked TDM, quickplay works fine.
I am honestly scared to start playing ranked KOTH, knowing that it would crash eventually. All these times, I have been lucky, the game crashed in the middle of the match and I was able to rejoin. But if the game crashes moments before a match is about to end, by the time I log in the match would already be over and I would be slapped with a “Banned from ranked” message for no fault of mine.
I wanted to know if anyone lese is facing the same issue as me.
