Gear packs are the worst thing for gears


(O Jufs O) #1

Gears of war 4 is a not even fun anymore. The fact that you have to buy gear packs to get your favorite characters is just hands down stupid. When gears had level unlocks such as gears 3 and UE, there was a real reason to play and have fun. I can only hope gears 5 will have character and weapon skin level unlocks

save your credits and purchase only elite pack guarantee u get what your looking for if not destroy the crap u don’t need and then craft to your liking

There are so many characters you can’t craft though

IMHO elite packs are the worst.

Operations packs seem like the best bang for your buck lately

I loved the few events that were in Gears 4 to earn stuff… But the fact that they were timed was ridiculous.

So many people (especially PC players) missed out on them because they literally couldn’t play. They should stop doing timed events for Horde at the very least

Get operations packs

I’ve gotten a lot of legendary / epic characters from them believe it or not and even if you don’t get them from the box you get an extreme amount of scrap from dupes or if you’re not a horde player just scrapping all your dupe skills


(Admire Vanity) #7

Yeah I agree every character feels so dry and meaningless now and rarity means absolutely nothing

Do you realize whether it’s through unlocks or packs, you are still playing the game to unlock these items. It really doesn’t matter, you are grinding for them one way or another.

I’m not actually against the Gears packs themselves, just against the RGNess of it. If it says “Myrrah pack”, then you should have the character guaranteed, and not just “a chance” to get her; especially when you pay actual money.

E-sports packs are the worst ones in that regard. We should be able to choose which character and skins we want in a pack, and pay for that.

But how many times have we said that during the last two years (almost) ? Plenty. Did anything really change ? Nope.
It’s kind of a b****y answer, but we have to speak our minds if we want things to evolve. ^-^

I agree with Jufs, it was so nice unlocking characters by playing. I remember being like “ohh I can get Anthony Carmine if I get to level 75 !”. And when you actually obtained the character, there was a sense of satisfaction. I miss those times now.

I don’t mind the rng packs for credits, they feed into the scrap system. I think cash packs should be no duplicates.

It would be nice to just have more transparency in the next Gears, meaning we just purchase what we like, either by credits or cash. The loot box, casino-type system I would like to see go - most developers/publishers seem to be going this route after the Battlefront fiasco.


(TheDeuterostome) #12

The credit ones aren’t that bad. Just save up credits and you shouldn’t have a problem.


(Eric 1822) #13

I agree, but my free time disagrees. I would love to spend hours and hours on this game, but with a family it is few and far between sometimes so it would be nice to just have a transparent store so if I wanted I could just buy my zombie Dom or whatever. This situation doesn’t apply to everyone, but I think the majority of Gears players would love to see what they are buying - I mean, most that play multiplayer bought the game ($60+) and probably the season pass as well…maybe season pass players get to see transparent packs?


(OujaStrike) #14

totally agreed once characters are made available in gear packs a month or so later we should be able to craft them.


(DeathScythe M01) #15

Actually now I have 77K of scrap.


(crazychainsaws8) #16

just get a horde class max out and do some speed runs


(crazychainsaws8) #18

already have classic baird


(The Sloth T34) #19

Roasted. :ok_hand:


(KonTroL RaNgeR) #20

I rather buy skins and characters outright

Are you the type of person that has to have every joke explained to you?
