Now, I personally don’t have anything against the Xbox player, being on PC, it’s another ball of wax.
The cross play between PC players and Xbox players on gears 5 has gotten way out of hand when it comes to an even playing field.
When I’m talking about how this game plays on PC, I know from experience when it comes to my PC, my PC specs are ryzen 2700 x CPU, gigabit Aorus RTX 2070 super, this brand of gigabyte graphics cards are 90 megahertz faster than most 2080 Supers. 32GB 3000 megahertz ddr4 ram, Samsung Evo solid-state drive one terabyte, primary hard drive. Corsair rm850 power supply. 6 thermaltake fans, three in the front and two on top and one in the back.
So my GPU is mounted vertically to keep it cooler so it performs better, checking the temp on the GPU, it never goes above 58 degrees Celsius.
For my PC specs, gears 5 should be able to play on my PC on medium to high settings at 150 + frames no problem, now it’s not just me, but me and three other PC players just played a king of the hill match, there were three Xbox players on the other team, these three Xbox players were able to move faster than we were, they’re also able to take cover and come out of cover a lot faster than we were able to.
Now I’m no expert on how the game works between PC and Xbox, but it is obvious how much TC has gone out of their way on giving the Xbox player and advantage, especially when the majority of one team has PC players.
If you get one team that is all PC players, and the other team is all Xbox players, I’m not saying the PC players should be able to walk all over the Xbox players, I’m just putting it point blank that when that happens, the game gives the Xbox players way too much of a buff.
Now as a PC player, this leaves me feeling like the game has intentionally dumbed-down my PC. When you want to play a fair game, it should not feel impossible to beat the other team, skill should be the thing that wins the game and not some stupid algorithm that identifies the platform you’re playing on, and intentionally awards one team dang near invincibility, and punishes the other team just for being on PC.
Again, I don’t have anything against the Xbox player, but if this is TCs way of trying to get the PC player to regret leaving console and going on PC, it didn’t work.
So at the end of March, we’re supposed to get some really big update that is supposed to level the playing field, if the game plays anything at all like it does now after this update. Then TC will lose most of its PC player base, I get it, some of you PC players don’t have many issues on this game, but what about most of us PC players that do??
I can see some of you Xbox players replying to this topic, and talking mad trash about PC, the thing you Xbox players fail to understand is all of these gears games were made on PC first, and then ported over to council as an exclusive.
Okay, I have to ask what the hell is TCs problem with PC? They made this game work perfect on a high-end PC before it was released as an exclusive to Xbox, why the hell can’t they make it work for everyone on PC, and make it an even playing field between PC and Xbox on cross-play.
Whoever takes over in the place of Rob Ferguson, they better make some changes before they lose a high majority of their PC player base, and quick.
