you can add a function to Gears 5 in the multiplayer that allows the character selection in the multiplayer to be set to Random.
Because I can never decide which character to take…
The same would be cool for the weaponskins.
They need to add it to the option/multiplayer menu when playing (especially for Social) Because you can change it in between matches when playing Ranked. But you have to go back to the main menu when playing Social to change characters…
TC probably didn’t add it because of the huge character roster. But it would be nice if they did!
I’d like to see a system that prevents people from playing as the same character as each other. It’s frustrating thinking you’re fighting one person, expecting them to have a power weapon from earlier or to play a certain way, only to find it was the other Baird, for example. Likewise, I like enemies to know it’s me they’re fighting in a 1v1, so they’ll expect me to use my usual tactics against them and I can trick them.
Any random character system that followed that rule would be fine with me.
That shouldn’t be a strategy. Seems like abusing the game functions. If it’s an option, I see why people do it - hate the game not the player, and all that - but it shouldn’t be a function. Just a cheap trick.
But, that’s just me. I dislike wall-bouncing, so what do I know?
What would be nice is if they would implement a system to change your character for the next match for Quickplay. The fact that it doesn’t exist and you have to back out of the match is asinine. Especially since they have a system that can change per live with Arcade.
