I was so hyped for this game. I just wanted a reason to turn on my Xbox and game for countless hours again. I’m not going to give you the whole spiel about how much I loved this game. I played Gears 5 consistently for the past week when it first came out. And after the billionth time playing flash bang heaven, I decided to call a quits.
I read there’s a patch today, I sign on…
“OH YEAH GENERAL RAAM!? THE WARDEN LOOKS SICK!”
Read how to get them
“Wait. I have to play horde to 50 rounds? Each?! I have to play escape!? I have to craft a totem !? Only one works while active?”
Smh I just wanna know who came up with this clever idea to lock characters behind tedious grinds. On top of that, the update said “it should take about 10hrs per character”… LMAOOOO so you want me to put in 40hrs (which it will take longer) to unlock characters? Bro I work a 40hr work week and I’m telling you, that’s not happening. I’d much rather clock in another 40hr work week for real money.
No wonder this game is dying. On gears 3, I had 30+ people online with a friend list of 60 people. That drifted around 15-20 for a month. This gears, I have me and 2 other people .
The TC needs to stop imagining how they want us to play the game. Let the community decide. Put challenges in the game that are reasonable, and respectable to our time. Everyone knows the community has people that exclusively play certain modes. Horde, escape, are both boring to me. I don’t wanna play against bots. I can’t imagine horde players getting bodied in versus just to unlock a character.
