Gears of War is a niche and detailed high skill game with a big pool of casuals.
It’s increasingly worse that a lot of players when it comes to Horde and even Escape just don’t care or troll.
Why do players not read lobby names?
Why do players not play the characters properly?
Why do players join custom games and show no respect or regard to the team/host already playing?
Why do players move barriers around when they are not engineer?
Why do players buy perks and engineering equipment without asking?
Why do players not care to engineer properly or use common sense in situations?
Why do JD’s join Masters game and use enforcer?
Why do Jack’s not understand burning weapons on Masters is vital? - Not hijacking and zapping …
When it comes to Escape you got idiots joining custom lobbies and not team playing, running ahead, not reviving, picking melee characters like Cole and Emile and taking 4 amo boxes. Why? - And they complain when they get kicked and banned. There’s just no brain in the head of some people.
The overall games enjoyment becomes an on going problem for serious/veteran/regular/ Gears of War players of PVE as so many bad.
Bad players who join games and just don’t care to play Horde properly. It’s not a big ask,
I’m not the greatest player but I have maps true mastered (not as jack or on frenzy, but as a proper character and with the tick - true completion 50 waves) with some willingness to learn how to play properly in the team.
There are many bullshitters who talk the talk but don’t walk it … who say they’ve done Masters and you can tell they are lying or never did a true completion or did it on frenzy or as Jack or just on Forge. Veteran players can see this a mile away.
Why is the bar so low? I see pages for Masters but very rarely not Forge. Is that all people can do/aspire to? Forge … It’s hard to put faith in a Del or JD or even Lizzie to a random player cause the player pool is so poor for the reasons stated in this thread and more.
To not even bother typing in chat or use that free headset that came with the Xbox.
It’s not good kicking people but it has to be done and any serious horde players know all this and more.
It’s sad cause this is the best version of horde ever. It requires true team play, communication, a plan and skill. Something a lot of Gears of War players can’t be bothered in. What TC has delivered as PVE even in it’s early stages for Gears 5 rocks. Escape + Horde is extremely detailed with longevity to play properly and differently every time.
Why do so many players not appreciate this?
Thank you for reading.
