Just curious to know what you guys think of the re-up 30 achievements and the fact they may potentially rise it up to 40 or 50 with futur achievements.
Currently the re-up 20 has a 0.02% of peoples that unlocked it. re-up 30 has 0.01%.
I know there is peoples that play more than me, there is peoples wich is their only games, they play 4/5 hours every day with friends. I know cause i been there in the past. Still i play decently, i would say 1 horde per week lately, 1 vs bots friendship boosting (thats another story for another time on a VERY BAD achievement) and i usually play 1h or 2 with one of my friend on 2 vs 2 Gnasher on week days. I play “regulary” if i can say, even if nowhere near as much as back then on GOW1, GOW3 or UE.
Yet currently Re-up 15 lev 86 and i feel its taking forever. I get that they do this to sell boosters… Sad reality of today’s gaming. Maybe im a bit conservative but im fine with buying tons of games, buying DLCs, but litteraly buying XP that pretty much does nothing beside unlocking an achievement, to me its wrong.
Anyway. Have a friend on RE-UP 18 who did bough 3 months boost like 2 months ago and he told me its like double per level as what i need now on 15. I feel this is getting insane. I really want to get re-up 20 and i feel that even if GOW5 last 2 years only (4 lasted 3 years) i can “probably” achieve it? But i don’t see myself getting to 30 let alone if they add more re-up cheevos later.
GOW4 for instance i played a DAMN LOT, but the level/re-up system was completely unbalanced. You HAD to farm horde speed runs. By playing VS MP it would not rank fast once you reach re-up 10. It felt like i spent as much time from re-up 10 to 12 and a half than i did 1 to 10. But the difference is , only re-up 11 was required.
I won’t lie, it bothered me for the first time not maximizing a Gears totally. I mean ok sure there is a few medals in Judgment i didn’t fully complete as it was not required but otherwise i re-upped to max in every Gears before 4 and had all achievements. In GOW4 i only have 2 left (iron man, and maybe ill mustard up the courage to do that with the cheese method one day, i was just tired and sick of this campaign as i did it way too many times for cheevos) but overall i have the potential to at least maximize Gears 4 at 2000/2000 when i wanna go for it. Being re-up 12 out of what? i think it was 20 at some point but maybe they added more? ANYWAY i knew i would never reach it. Annoying but whatever…
But in 5 they added a cheevos for it and even if i keep playing G5 for 2 more years “regulary” (wich at some point i don’t think ill do as much, as i have less friends to play online than back then) i don’t see myself getting to 30 (or more)
My friends says escape is the only “decent” way to lev up and he is right, doing one escape on master seem to make me go almost a level, and with a good team it goes “fast” but here is the catch, one im not much an escape fan. Once in a while ok sure, but my friend boost it EVERY NIGHT for multiple hours and he is only re-up 18… YIKES !
I played 7 games of 2 vs 2 with my friend today, won all games and yet barely did one level… :\
I just feel they kinda go overboard with this re-up 30 cheevos. You need to play 5h a day, each day, buy double XP at all time of course… and yet you have to do this for a long time. I like Gears but i mean… i got gamepass, i have many games in backlog, i have…a life? Would be cool to not exagerate no?
