It hurts to see gears go down the gutter

And the hero system ■■■■■■■■ was not required for this approach, because it only resulted in characters both beung unusable in the PvE modes while being forced to either use ones you may not like or have no interest in for certain roles you may like, or the other way around, AND because TC either just shoehorned the system in way too late - like seriously, 3 classes for one mode and like 6 or 7 for the other in 3 whole years? - and/or just took way too long to release new ones also still locked to a class.

If they bring that nonsense back for 6 I’m playing the Campaign and sayonara MP PvE modes, see you when they inevitably are forced to remove it again a year later.

Lol nobody but this forum liked gears 4 competitive. Everyone disliked it tbh. Gears 3 on 360 has a bigger player base than 4 & 5 combined

I know, it was garbage but if they want to make characters challenge required they can literally do what I just said or model it after gow 3.

Well TDM is still a bad game mode and shouldn’t be in gears… My statement stands. You can have fun in other game modes, it doesn’t have to be tdm

And I’m certain alot more people would prefer that over what we have now.

Well obviously, that’s like saying mw2 had a bigger playerbase than ghost and advanced warfare.

Well it was in gears 3, and it was great. It’s simple for when you dont want to sit in a shower and play KOTH or execution.

Yeah ok. Try getting out of a 5 man spawn trap and tell me you’re not sitting in a shower


But I never really had 5 man spawn trap issues, I had some in UE like on courtyard (shudder) or rooftops.

In 4 I can’t remember any.

exactly, we were talking about UE here

I thought we were talking about newer gears games but if we are talking about UE, it was more present in UE for me. I only played TDM.

I didn’t play KOTH because of a lack of a squad and TDM seemed more solo friendly.

i play thumb(not claw) you can do it bro.
turn your camera a bit more and hold a after .(Forward.)

i showed it can be done consistently check my thread vid. The Newest TOXIC move in 2021!

Lol no
Long live tdm

Can I be the first one to point out that @CeIticsFan’s pfp suits them perfectly


I’m surprised it’s not a 360p picture of Marcus.

My opinion it comes down to money. Its a Microsoft owned title at the end of the day. And unfortunately TC has to serve its master. The goal of any company like Microsoft is to make money. And having a game like gears being in a good state for too long takes away from other games that will show more profits.

I’ve been paying attention over the years and it seems like when a game like gears thats owned as an exclusive title gets really good and hits its peak. The studio then is forced by Microsoft to start systematically pulling back, and starts persuading players to just leave and play the next new game that costs another $60 to $100 USD. Then that game starts to suck then the next one. Rinse and repeat. Pay attention and you will start seeing it too.

But look at games coming from independent studios making games titles that are not owned by an entity such as Microsoft. The Games they make are good for many years and keep getting better because of the obligations to make more money based off the life of the games. Because their next big title is years down the road.

Just saying the longevity of gears games was forever when it was EPICS, and not Microsoft. If TC had the rights to Gears and Microsoft has no say, our game would be much better.

Epic made that one. And Microsoft was paying for the privilege to have the exclusive back then. I know realize that Microsoft owning the franchise is the worst thing that could have happened to gears.

This doesn’t happen lol

“Well gears 3 had it :thinking: and I’m sorry oh wise one I didnt know gears had to be solely competitive :pensive:
Execution, guardian and koth don’t have to be competitive either but gears of war IS competitive. Just because it was in gears 3 doesn’t mean it was a good game mode. It was horrible in gears 3 because of how you could just camp with a broken lancer/hammerburst. Gears 3 was also a bad gears game imo. You also weren’t forced to play tdm in gears 3, you could choose. In UE for years you have only been able to play TDM. The exe servers aren’t even up anymore which is what made gow 1 what is it, that and warzone

Just did over the last two years lol :man_shrugging:

Can’t pathom that any moves were made to keep the playerbase.

You’re forced to play TDM in UE because the game is 6 years old and nobody plays it. You’re stuck in the past dude. Get over it.

If execution was so great, it wouldn’t be completely dead in every single iteration of Gears that exists. I personally like execution, but it’s not hard to realize diehard execution fans are few and far between.
