I like that they made the Lancer actually relevant again. I like that melee was improved (somewhat). I still prefer Gears 1 and 2’s melee that actually partially stunned the opponent.
I disliked Arcade mode. I would rather just have the same game types as ranked but just not ranked. Rifle damage is a tad too high. Its so high that it makes rushing almost pointless. Now players can just camp and hide behind cover the entire game and kill you from afar. They just need to balance it better.
