This is a rough idea, but I’ll throw it out there. Crossplay right now is a mess, PC players cannot find matches and console players are at a disadvantage versing PC players, I suggest that TC locks players to their platform, then after a year and a half crossplay will be enforced. When players verse each other from another platform it will not count towards rank of either. This way the game won’t be as dead halfway through it’s cycle. I also would recommend this for region locking
Not unless the pc crashing is fixed in Gears 5. Thats the main reason I have cross play turned off.
That seems like a bad idea, tbh.
Half way through the life-cycle, forcing people to embrace a massive change (like cross-play being permanent) would be horrible.
This is Gears, the community already has a hard time embracing little changes during updates.
A good way is to have a mode in Core and Competitive and allow the Core one to be permanently Crossplay.
That way, everyone gets what they want.
Not everyone crashes, hopefully 5 will see no one crash.
