Rod Ferguson and the Coalition, all you guys have been making terrible decisions and ruining a game that has had many loving and loyal players since gears 1-3.
I don’t understand why multiplayer got such a huge overhaul. I believe gears 4 nailed it pretty well tbh. It’s too bad the game now caters to casual players based on the combat and maneuver adjustments made, as well as game mode and map changes… which is the biggest slap in the face to the veteran players. Multiplayer now has a hint of casual shooter mechanics like emotes, mvp showcases and other goofy things which take away the gears of war feeling and make it more like a cod game. Its pretty obvious that you guys are trying to bring in new players but the thing is; casual player will just come and play for a while until the next big game comes out and then they will leave without looking back. While the REAL players who actually give a ■■■■ about the game will stay and give you heartfelt concerns and advice to make sure that our game stays in tact… because in the end it is the fans who decide if the game is good enough, and the coalition must listen. Incase you haven’t realized, very few og fans support these huge changes to the game. Very big red flag for you if your loyal fanbase is not on board.
As for the storyline it’s quite simple; no one wants to spend an entire campaign searching for mommy or daddy. And I personally am very disinterested in an entire 3 games about Kait Diaz and her drama filled bloodline and psychological problems. What the fans really want is to return to the classic og full on ■■■ whooping roots of gears and be sent down into a cave system with our squads, take orders from command and give the locust an ■■■ whooping they’ll never forget. Gears of War, not Gears of Kait.
Why change anything, when nothing was broken in the first place? Horde is an udder disappointment to everyone really. You cant split up and hold fort on more than a SINGLE position. If you go anywhere else besides where the fabricator is enemies literally spawn on top of you. A good example of non broken horde mechanics is gears 1-4 blooddrive where 2 players camp one side, 2 players on the other and the last one can go where ever maybe in the middle if its safe. This can be done on many other maps in gears 1-3. Its simple just dont allow enemies to spawn near certain areas of the map where players occupy.
Personally I do not like the class system in horde, the characters being locked to certain classes is possibly up there with some of the worst decisions ever made in these new titles. And Rod Ferguson allowed this to happen, huge shame man. Its obvious fans want to play whomever they want without being restricted to a certain class. If I had any power to change horde for the fans I would literally copy paste gears 3 horde. Just like I would probably copy paste gear 4 multiplayer with the gears 3 medal and unlock system. The Gears 3 medal and unlock system was FAR superior than what is currently in gears5.
Gears 5 is terrible i’m sorry.
LISTEN TO YOUR FANS!!! This is all coming from your most loyal and loving players. If you dont want your game to tank stop changing so much that does not need to be changed and hear us out!
