Gears of War 5 is being ruined with a portion of players leveling up using hacks. NOT the Lethal Engagement 1st kill ribbon trick.
The problem with this is that re-up numbers is typically a symbol of game time. During such game time, experience is gained - map awareness, understanding of teams, enemies, hero’s abilities, ultimate’s and cards and most importantly strategy. When players use this hack for re-up 30, 35, 50 and play like true garbage it becomes a problem. They need to go back to beginner to play the game properly.
What I find interesting is that Grace and Lizzie and Padduk barriers are “a problem” to the Coalition but this isn’t. I Lap The Flash and these Gears content creators are so desperate for cheap views (which catches on with the community and then the studio fixes it) but they haven’t covered this.
These re-up hacks should be fixed in order to keep the player pool within some integrity. All this leads to is more kicking players from lobbies with high re-ups as they are so bad at the game and ruin the game experience.
This needs exposing and patching.
