Ronin Karn… great. More characters of the descent to honor Japan! I feel as if Kung Fu Imagos will become a thing after all.

If I can be excused I think I need to take a nap for like 30 years so my tomatoes can grow and I can finally recover from working so hard getting ronin Kantus And it not being unique anymore. Long live Japan!

Also Lizzie… our poor Lizzie isn’t immortalized in cyborg fury for another month…

Luck of the Draw sounds awesome, I love random weapon modes, from back in the day with Halo Fiesta.

Absolutely hate the fact they are adding a middle finger emote. The blood spray was bad enough, but now everyone’s just going to go around gigging everyone they disagree with in game, or griefing people with it.

I mean, that’s the sort of thing that will just trigger people… why add it?!

Ronin Karn should be 1000 Iron at the most though since he is early access and will be for 10k GP gold soon.

Okay but the ronin karn is a bit overpriced…cmon that’s like what 15 USD?

have you seen gears esports? it seems like antagonizing and trash talking is condoned and/or encouraged in this game.

it’s kind of what makes this game what it is going back to Gears 1. it’s always been that type of antagonistic experience

Listen, you’re playing a game where someone saying “eat ■■■■ and die” after he pummels you with your own arm is just part of the regular dialogue & gameplay lol.
I don’t think it’s that big of a deal in one of the rudest games to ever grace this Earth.

Edit: this goes out to eviljas247 as well lol

Middle finger expression is about to be abused like crazy towards host, lol.

  • People gonna do it then quit matches.
  • When you swiping at people being AFK, they gonna use it.
  • When you want something from someone, and theirs annoyed from it, they gonna use it.
  • When you write in chat towards someone, that person gonna walk towards you an use it.
  • When you pull something out the fabricator, the host engineer gonna walk up to you and use it, then kick you

Ah… really fun times lies ahead in Gears 5, lol

What’s the all these recent items being strictly Iron. Iron isn’t easy to get at all. What the heck TC? You guys seem to be moving backwards in the wrong direction. Don’t repeat the same mistakes we already called you out on.
