We was dominating 1-0 then boom 2 players left. Yes I know this is KoTH.
It’s more of rant at TDM being 2 only.
So essentially you have more of a chance if you casual lot turning up, getting bored and going off in a ranked game.
If your stacked with your friends you have a less of a chance of them going yeah mate cya and bowling offline.
Its me lol. I agree, cant for the life of me understand why you can’t stack in TDM now. Everyone cried for an icon to show who’s in a stack which has now led to further crying cause they’re playing solo in a TEAM BASED mode against stacks. Remove the icon dont let people know who is/isn’t stacked, way better.
Already said this on another thread but people who hate on stacks are just looking for excuses. Only advantage stacks have is that chances are they are in communication with each other. I’ve always got a mic and regardless of others in my lobby to call out flanks or enemies. Being in a stack doesn’t grant you these super powers of winning LoL.
I 100% agree limiting the stack in TDM is stupid. It’s a team based game, and if you have a full squad, you should be able to play as you please. Instead of limiting TDM to parties of two, TC JUST ADD WINGMAN ALREADY!!! But no, they add FFA instead which is too casual for ranked and contradicts the game because GEARS IS A TEAM BASED GAME!!! Dont get me wrong FFA is cool, but it shouldn’t be ranked.
Ranked playlist should be:
TDM(4v4 is fine it has Gears UE vibes)
Execution (or make Gridiron have execution rules, warzone rules is too easy & rewards players who stay back with retros, lancers, and other support weapons)
Escalation (even if alot of people don’t like it, there’s definitely a high skill level when it comes to play style)
Wingman (a playlist for 2 man squads)
Though I agree with the most part of what you guys are saying I also think there trying to cater too as many as possible.
The problem with that in my opinion is in ranked objective type games they are a more elitist playlist compared too social, there is nothing more frustrating in having a good competitive game regardless if you are winning or losing and people dropping out because they only wanted too play for 5 minutes.
I whole heartily agree that stacks should be in TDM and it’s part of the core mechanisms of gears that make it great, meeting new people and playing with them regularly like 5 a side football team, though I must admit I gained more weight since ditching that and playing with mates sinking some beers
While I agree that a lot of KOTH matches play out that way. You’re complaining about an advantage that you could have as well if you played with friends or use LFG. Can’t really sympathize with people who solo queue. Gears is a team based game and whether you win/lose is dependent on how you and your teammates perform during the match. You have the tools at your disposal so you don’t have to solo queue and you’re just willingly choosing not to use them. If you prefer to solo queue that’s fine but then you run the risk of getting stacks. When it comes to stacks vs solos, the community is very strange to me. It’s as if they want to play social where people don’t try as hard but they also want those laidback matches to count for their rank.
Honestly if there’s a viable solution that benefits both sides I’m not seeing it. I think TC’s only hope is to go back to Gears 3 ranked for the next Gears so that placements and ranks don’t mean anything and there’s no pressure to win outside of simple satisfaction and a sticker next to your name
Which is precisely my point. It’s ranked, your encouraged/expected to be searching in stacks. It’s the mode where you’re supposed to give it your all. I don’t agree that they should match you against solos if you’re searching by yourself.
