Before someone says “running in 5 man squads” or “Bad Connection” haha. (Which does play a part no question.)
I just would like to share what I’ve noticed since playing Gears 4. Here’s my theory, I believe most Diamond players are able to tap into a sort of “Zone” faster than others.
Have you ever played with a Diamond player and they’ve amassed like 7 kills in less than a minute?
Now of course, not every Diamond is the same, but this is an innate ability I’ve noticed. I believe this is why Diamonds tend to stack unknowingly. It is because they all obtain a faster feel for the game. So if one Diamond is doing bad, you can pretty much bet at least one of your Diamond peers is in the Zone and will keep your team in the game.
Most people in Onyx 3 is missing this intangible. I’ll be posting another topic as well, explaining how I seemingly took my old Onyx 1 account, and within a few weeks ago, and grinded to Diamond 1 in TDM, solo most of the time. There’s definitely huge hurdles to get over as a lower rank despite TDM being one of the more easier modes to get Diamond in and I’ll be mentioning those as well.
Once you become Diamond playing solo or even Duos, 3 manning it etc, becomes so extremely risky. And it’s not that we can’t play separately, it’s just that the randoms given always tend to play extremely horrible.
What do you guys think? Or Other Diamonds. have you noticed this as well when playing with your squad?
