gears is that, ranked players keeping it alive.
the way to regain the glory days is to go back to that
if i was in charge, i wouldnt focus on anything like esports or any of that waste of time and energy. the game is driven by gore, horde, and ranked. put in overrun and lots of things to grind for in ranked - NOT ESPORTS STREAMS.
make it like cod were you play and unlock thing after thing
gears is a competitive game, absolutely it is, but it isnt an esports game
also, these same pros were calling previous tunings perfect.
look, i get it that they are pros and do this for a living (somewhat at least lol) but i have seen the clips they post and the arguments they make. yes, there are pros and cons to everything but sometimes they are just crying because they want to nerf their competition.
for example, hive xovios always adapts and plays the game for what it is, and you hear some pros attacking him and trying to take credit away from him. i’ve seen the plays he pulls on them and they go crying about it and post it saying the game shouldn’t be like that. it’s nonsense, you cant ever find a perfect medium.
lastly, none of these pvp guys asked for 4v4 koth and many other things
more focused on your point @GuiltyCrisis
i perfectly understand what you are saying. the regular player who keeps this game alive does not care about any pro player or “celebrity” in the community
Latam community is really all about memes and jokes, but they populate the game and due to the language barrier they are absolutely not ever involved as a group in anything any “talking head” is spewing on twitter.
i play with lots and lots of people from the LFG and they DO NOT ever mention any of this stuff to me.
There is huge disconnect from how the feedback is gathered and from where.
the other day i went down the friends list wormhole and i found so many names who dont play gears anymore. they wont play unless tdm and guardian are like they were in gears 4
