As someone who is now approching their 30’s, juggling between my own personal family and work, I don’t play Multiplayer games as a rule anymore, I don’t have the time to put in that amount of effort to not drag down other people, so I just play Co-op based things with people, on Halo, Gears etc, or on my own, games against the AI.
When I get some free time from a hard day of work, especially now during Covid crisis as a front line member of Staff, I just want to chill out, sit back and talk to people and play a game and chill out from the stress.
I don’t play to win, I just play to have fun. Now, that is not a bad thing, I paid to play this game, so I play it how I want to play it. However, that might not be fair to some other players who play to win and put that time and effort in and who don’t really want someone like me who is not going to play to win, I accept that, but I play against the AI, so they never have that problem.
I’m just here to chill from stress from work so anything that improves upon the Co-op experience would be greatly appreciated.
At the moment if I have challanges to do and mates I know from work who come on to play some Gears with me, we play Co-op vs AI, or the Campaign, but when they are off and I don’t have challenges to do, and I want to play as the Locust/ Swarm characters, I’m relegated to a Private Lobby with myself and just bots.
No one to talk to, no one to have fun with, just myself so it would nice to have a Co-op vs AI set up the way normal Versus is set up, where it switches you between COG and the Swarm.
I know Co-op vs AI was created with the sole intention to help new players new people get into the rhythm of playing Gears Multiplayer and was not created to be used for this purpose, but for me and others we don’t play and or like playing against other people, we are quite fine with playing against the AI so we can just chill out, and not take everything seriously, and if we need to head off because for family reasons, work etc, it does not throw the match and effect other people.
I play Horde yeah, but I like palying the actual Multiplayer side of things like King of The Hill, Team Deathmatch, Dodgeball etc.
Their is a large part of the Gears community that just plays PVE, there always has been so any additions to the AI side of things would be great.
