I’ve died to alot of stuff in this game like : flashbangs not working on an enemy and they kill me, boomshot scions hunting me down, sires that don’t make noise and the list can go on and on and on but the most infuriating thing that has happened to me (and this has happened ALOT) is a friendly slugger throwing shock grenades directly on top of me while im meleeing an enemy and I get downed because of it.
Whenever it happens I just have so many questions like do you see me meleeing this enemy? Why are you throwing shock grenades at your teammates? Why are you using shock grenades in Gears 5 when they are bad? Why does every random slugger throw shock grenades at me? Lol
Usually happens by accident, and I still fail to see why friendly fire is enabled in Escape anyway. The only thing it’s good for is using Poppers to harm your enemies, which should be a given in any mode regardless of friendly fire being on or not.
Is a classic. Brawler players in Escape seem to think it is their sole task to kill anything and everything, even if it’s already at low health and going to die anyway.
Marksman can limitedly be excused by them shooting a different target and you just happening to be in the explosion radius.
And enemies are the ones that are more annoying because you can’t get rid of the silent Sire nonsense, and other stupidity that comes from them. If a teammate is being an excessive nuisance, as long as you’re the host(or the host has a shred of common sense and isn’t the obnoxious player), you can always kick them.
Hmm, so it’s not just me. I noticed that any Brawler that joins my game is usually very pushy ( like sprinting far away and then going down ) or they just kill and steal kills.
Of course not all Brawlers are like that but this is what I’ve seen so far.
Nothing tops getting killed by team mate using chainsaw or retro charging you, while you’re playing a hijacked unit as Jack. This makes me mad every time.
And when I was going through hives while friend played Pilot earlier on in the game, I remember two instances of getting completely frozen because I am meleeing a pack of Juvies and someone would shoot their Talon pistol which CLEARLY MISSES and turns my damage HP from red to white ice.
Getting killed by enemies is not even annoying. It’s fair game. They outplayed.
I’m pretty sure you’re only saying this because you think I like a ranking system but I don’t. It’s only fun for 3-4 days per playlist until you get the highest rank and then there’s nothing left to do.
Definitely not. You know I have a lot of time for you and mean nothing untoward. I’ve just never been a fan, it’s always been flawed (Gears 4 arguably less I suppose) and caused more problems than simply not having a ranking system like it used to be. I’m fully aware it’s existence adds a small bit of replayability, duration dependant on skill, but if the game’s that good then it’s redundant. Just like it used to be.
Brawler has become one of my least favourite classes in Escape.
Part of it is the AOE friendly fire from All The Glory.
And the second, is that as the Brawler is a strong class, it’s kinda created this category of players who are at best, mediocre who feel invincible and rush head-first into fights, alerting enemies and then get themselves killed, then they throw a hissy fit and quit because they’re up to their necks in enemies and the remaining two players aren’t in a position to revive them.
