But then they’d look bad for not having any quit penalties.
The community’s pulling hard in multiple directions here. I’m with you, and I don’t think the current system is working. But we have to face the fact that a lot of us demanded this. And we also have to accept that TC’s resources are focused on Gears 5 right now. So unless someone invents a better solution on their own time, or Microsoft magics a better solution out of thin air, TC cannot turn off the current system.
It really sucks. But again, they were bowing to fan pressure, and if we punish them for that they’ll stop listening to fans. Their people on Twitter are already discouraged.
Hopefully they’ve learned from all of this, the good and the bad, and hopefully Gears 5 will have a better system on launch. In which case they can tweak that instead.
Let’s focus on that; we can still make a positive difference there.
