So all the major online MS games, all run their multiplayer components on dedicated servers. The Azure servers.
So please answer me this?
Why is it, that out of the Halo titles, Forza games, Sea of Thieves, etc…they ALL work flawlessly, of course a little hiccup here and there, bit for the most part run awesome!
Then we get Gears…on the exact same servers, yet run horribly.
People need to stop putting the blame on MS, as it is not their servers. It’s TC and there horrible MM code.
Ever since Gears 2 launched, The online experience has been plagued by the entire concept of putting multiple regions in the same lobbies,
There has been consistent, and rampant issues because of this, and it has degraded the inline experience for many players.
Are you, TC, finally going to implement a different matchmaking process for Gears 5?
As you know, whether it be Horde, or online VS, the MP components of Gears is what makes your game.
With such subpar connections, a ridiculous ping allowance, and regions that should NOT be playing with other regions at all, how are you going to change all this for a smoother experience in Gears 5?
I don’t want to hear all the hype about rendered ttrees, water effects, landscapes etc…
I want to hear about online MP searching, and pairing
That is what will entice a huge player base to buy Gears 5.
How are you CHANGING the MP connection and stability for the better for your new game?
Tell us this part, and we will listen. Ignore this part, and we will ignore your game. Plain and simple.
A smooth online experience, will make players want to buy packs, and earn credits for packs.
If your online experience doesn’t change, why would anyone want to get packs, when the online is not stable enough on a daily basis, to give the player confidence to buy said packs?
Let us , the payer’s know, how you are FIXING the connection component for Gears 5.
How will we be able to search for matches?
Will you institute a LOCAL only search for us, so we can play with people near us, that are on the same internet we are, and that live in the same locale? That right there sets up a common ground, to entice new friendships, and teams.
The guy from England may be nice, and a good player, but when we pay together his connection is horrible reaching over to me in Vancouver, and vice versa.
I don’t want to match in a lobby with 7 dial up connections, because it paired me w your favored player base.
I am on the Canadian West Coast. I WANT to play with other fellow Canadians and Americans, also on the west Coast, and currently your matchmaking does not allow for that.
To show your fansz that you actually give a crap, you should, by all means, tell us how you will be handling the most important part, imo, of Gears…
