Could argue the PvP events are easier to come up with because most of them just shuffle weapon spawns and other settings, which is fairly simple to set up, I would imagine.
What kills me inside is that TC is just going to kill off basically any noteworthy support for the game at this point, and they’re never going to return to Gears 5 at any point in time, or I very much suspect they won’t considering how messy the Locust enemies are and how Op 5 was the only actually noteworthy release for every aspect. Sure, 6, 7 and 8 still came with maps, characters and skins but I can hardly name anything positive that really stuck out to me for them.
They could take a page out of 343s book with how they went back to MCC some time after Halo 5s release and are/were still supporting it(not up to date as I haven’t really gotten into the MP parts of Halo for 1-4 and just dabbled in 5s) with them working on Infinite and all that, but unless Gears 6 flops horribly on Halo 5 levels of bellyflopping from a 10 meter high diving tower, I never see Gears 5 getting any further relevant changes or fixes because they don’t care and the playerbase probably won’t be there at that point either unless something exists that drives everyone back to it.
PS Drone Elites still suck. Especially since the Op 3 or 4 AI change that makes them, and every other type of Swarm/Locust Drone armed with a rifle botwalk EVERYWHERE while shooting until they find a cover to sit on. Also something TC NEVER even once mentioned in any patch notes nor commented on whether intended or a bug they always ignored like many other things.
