Gears Forums

Just so I know, what rule did my post break?


(Omen LP) #1

My thread about the relative pricing of Gears DLC vs other systems/games was locked without comment:

Can you please tell me why? So I know, for future posts? I’m sure the reason wasn’t “cuz we don’t talk about that,” so what was it?

Doesn’t say who locked it or why…

Thank you…

maybe TC doesn’t want to face the fact that they have over priced DLC.

Shady tactics

Yeah, I’m not quite sure other than maybe they felt there was nothing positive that could come from it or maybe it was already becoming derailed? It’s strange indeed because I feel like open discussion should be allowed as long as it’s civilized so they know what they’re doing right and wrong.

It’s best to PM a mod about this. I did that in the past when I thought a mod was being unfair and I believe the situation was handled well.
Threads like this are supposed to be closed so don’t be offended if that happens.

It appears that it was closed by TC Octus.

Reach to to @forum-mods as they can provide an explanation on why the thread got locked.

But I’m going to assume its very likely for unconstructiveness. Your post is ambigous / vague in terms of feedback and explaining what TC did wrong and what they should do in future.

What you done is just make a comparison without giving any sort of follow up with critical feedback

It’s because you committed a thought-crime.

I think TC went the Micro transaction route because of Microsoft. They’re trying to regain a profit after buying the franchise from Epic while at the same time using Gears UE and Gears 4 as the guinea pigs to get better at making gears games. I have a feeling that we will see the return of DLC and maybe some micro transactions that shouldn’t affect big parts of the game like characters.

Just like in North Korea, you do not question Glorious Leader …or else.

Exactly they used RNG so they could make more money. It’s pretty simple they found a way to make extra cash without having to change anything in the game.


(baconman886) #15

I hope they didn’t do it just because they can’t face facts. The Gears forums and their mods have been pretty good about allowing criticisms on here. I hope the forums don’t transform into censorship. It’s not even close yet though. Wanna see mods abusing power? Just look at something like the Overwatch forums.

Lol, by closing the post they are getting much more attention to this than if they just lelt the original post alone :slight_smile:

Geez…just look at Facebook and YouTube😂

I thought Microsoft made them do it for the same reasons. I remember seeing somewhere I think it was Cliffy B that said it that in order for Epic to make a Gears 4 it would have to be multi platform for them to make a profit. But the RGN I believe is on TC. I think they would have made more money in the long run if you could just buy the character you want not a chance at it. I know I would have bought a bunch. But personally I won’t risk getting a BS Mryyah to get a BS Hoffman. I know a few people who stayed away for the same reasons as well. I also know a few people who spent 100’s on 1 pack chasing a certain character so I could be wrong

It is really hard to say I’ve seen someone on the forum complain they spent $10,000 to get everything in the game but he missed one of the events to get a new character.

someone spent ten thousand???
