I admit calling it an insult may be a bit dramatic, as they most likely didn’t do it intentionally to displease any of their own fan base but really?
I have nothing against the people that want to play KOTH or any other game type. Plenty of talented long time players that prefer it, All I’m trying to say is why shut the franchise off to players who have only ever played Execution or even Warzone for that matter?
Your take is basically saying “get with the times and get over it”… not only that but your arguments are clearly just your personal opinions about a game type you appear to not know much about.
Getting up close or using a power a weapon is not the only way to get a kill in Execution by the way…
you could trap a pair in cross fire and triple down them on pick up. or in gears one or the early gears two days you could even pistol headshot your downs from across the map and get your down that way.
Obviously you aren’t very familiar with competitive Execution gameplay, or you’d know these things.
Execution rules don’t just promote more shotgun battles, it promotes smart team play, coordinated weapon pick ups / pushes, and a far more intense overall gameplay in general. It being cut is actually why most people I know and have grown up playing with, quit playing gears all together. so you’re saying basically that all of us should just move on and play a new game type that to us, is not the gears we grew up playing at all?
kinda harsh, gotta say if TC’s shares that sentiment and really just leaves Execution and all single life game types out like this, As they already have, they will continue to lose some of the gears franchise oldest players.
