Gears 4 Esports Is NOT a Success in My Book... here's why


(Asparragus) #41

Gears of War 4 is a money pit for e-whored children…

(Duffman GB) #42

Very good point re the length of the events. I’m not being rude but it is not “high brow” entertainment . Not knocking what it does, but maybe takes itself a little too seriously.

It would be better if their rotate modes throughout the events.

I don’t watch them because I have no interest in Escalation.

If they went:


Would be a lot more interesting and better than just Escalation every single event …

Post withdrawn… why?

(SmokeTastyBuds) #46

My mother once told me if you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything.

Suffice it to say I really don’t care for e sports.

I find eSports a chore to watch.

So I’ve never really watched it apart from a few minutes here and there.

And as mentioned I have zero interest in Escalation.

But if it exists and brings more attention to Gears then that’s a good thing as it will hopefully boost the population.

Gears games always end up with such a small population, you end up knowing the majority of them and my only games now consist of playing the same people.

Exactly… Escalation isn’t really how I like my Gears but I wanted to be supportive so I would tune in often and watch. I didn’t stop watching Gears Esports because of escalation though I just lost interest because every month even after the 12 months of updates there would be changes to the Competitive settings that continued to divide the Core and Competitive playerbase. Another great point you made is the fact that Gears Of War has never been a game that EVERYONE plays it’s a franchise that thrives on the support from the hardcore fans and when we are being ignored I begin to fear for Gears

Finally someone describing what i feel, thx. This is a major flaw. Also, escalation is capable of being in social.

(PedanticGamer) #50

I would like escalation to become part of the social playlist. Where I live that is the only pvp mode that is active, and I haven’t been able to play a single game of escalation and the only way I could would require me to have a 200+ ping, which I do not want.

Escalation is a horrible mode.

7 Rounds and need to get 3 captures with overly-long respawns?

What’s the apeal?

Censorship dont makes it better…Stuffmaster.Shame on you
but thats the way the coalition works gainst critic.

(Dead Fallout 96) #54

Let me sum up exactly why Gears of War 4 has the absolute worst multiplayer experience out of all Gears of War games and what the previous 4 Gears games had that did much better than Gears of War 4.

(MrXboxlivenoob) #55

I personally think it wasn’t a success because the game itself wasn’t a very big hit and it performed poorly.

(TGLT Clutch) #56

Universal tuning is a must in my opinion. The game movement and damage should be same across every mode. Everyone enjoyed Gears 3 and it had one tuning. We (majority of players) don’t want a specific tuning for eSports. They are a small minority of players who should just get used to the base tuning instead of having their own tuning. The Universal tuning should be changed if anything, don’t make different ones. Pretty sure majority prefer core movement and some comp damage settings.

(TGLT Clutch) #57

so this game has 2 splits in playerbase MP. one is core vs comp players. one is PC vs xbox players. how will this game ever be a big hit?

(MrXboxlivenoob) #58

I’m talking specifically about sales and the style of gears this time around. Its mostly the same but it just wasn’t welcomed with open arms with a lot of the community expressing their dislikes/hate about this game. Plus TC tried too hard trying to put this game in the esports scene and it was just cringe. I’ve been a long time fan and I’m even very biased when it comes to gears but even I’ll admit I was just a bit disappointed by gears 4.

I know its TC’s first gears game… but idk. I’ll just have to see how gears 5 will go. Shouldn’t of called it just gears 5 as its always been gears of war… but whatever. Its not as bad as judgment I guess.

(TGLT Clutch) #59

I don’t think they will drop the of war part.

as you said, they focused on the eSport scene which is for a small minority of the playerbase and didn’t put much effort to satisfy the majority of players found in the core and horde mode. (Pretty sure more people are in to horde than eSports)

(Ree4er Madness) #60

Totally agree with the OP. And escalation is yaaawwwwnnnnn.
