Just want to open up this topic to gather as much feedback as possible to incentivize TC or future devs on Gears 6 to take note and do better and not fall again for mistakes that have always been addressed but never listened to.
Myself first. I think Gears 5, overall had a good impact as it became that kind of game that you want to play only because you are bored af and you kind of enjoy playing it. The way the game has always been, makes you feel that is always a good time to get your gnasher out and get some kills.
On the other side tho, I felt the decline each and every operation especially when the biggest. , and worst tuning has ever been dropped, things went downhill, with no breaks at all. Slower movements, FTD damage, bullet magnetism, gib range, alternate weapon slowed down like hell, cancel slide and shot delays… man I could keep going… for most of the people crossover was, is, and always will be the problem (not for me)
Maps: only a couple of them, IMO, are worthy to be in this game… maps like Pahanu , are the worst thing ever made for a franchise like Gears… people like going after each other with a shotgun in their hands and get some nice chunkshot… but the few maps are way to broaden and incentivize camping with no action in the game… you can literally fall asleep. Other maps are kind of ok, but players voting for the same ones over and over again, and the lack of adding more feels like we’ve been left behind to play with the same toys.
Skins: I mean, this became a good idea to follow the actual trend that we are witnessing in the modern game era, luckily for us, here on Gears 5, there is the option to not spend an eye of the head to get your fav skin … what it takes is a week and you got what you want… but does it worth it? IMO, meh… as the skins are good for the overall appearance of your fav character, but the lack of the actual rarity, uniqueness to show off is actually felt… as no one bothers if you got the newest black steel Kait or the newest set… people who got them first got ripped as after a while they went for sale with coins or for a cheaper price… I’d be more willing to go for looting one
Pve: it is something that you can do without stressing too much going for a horde or escape is a nice way to break from PvP but for how long you can grind? The horde, IMO, has the kind of feeling of ''seen it already somewhere (gears 4) with, pardon my french, the bs of deeds, shield protection, choppers, flying non-sense thing that are not what the original horde was meant for. … all these classes, superpowers, special abilities, etc… .make it a non-sense to me… was much funnier when was kept simple, smooth against only locusts… period.
Pve Escape: The actual idea was kind of cool but never been optimized, at its fullest, There has always been a lack of idea in this project… yes some fix here and there, but never felt a substuntial impact . Escape was good at the beginning. .but after a while… what is the point of it? is it funny when you have done it 20 times in a day? The lack of new maps, or traps, enemies, make it repetitive and boring… I’d better had a look at gears Judgment
Tour of Duty and daily tasks: Man… where do I start with this one? ALWAYS the same kind of tasks… ‘‘5 headshots’’ kill X scion, ‘’ kill with frags’’, ‘‘escape from 2 hives’’
EVERY single day the same kind of thing… tbh I stopped doing it… is boring and doesn’t offer me the chill t to go after these tasks… oh, not to mention that some of the tasks are still bugged since Op1 but no one cares.
PvP: Well… this is something that could fire the thread… so I want to say that I am kind of cool with that… but the tuning ruined it for good… the damage that you do is fake as hell… not corresponding at all of what you do… gib range f ucked up completely… you got always the same % like 83 (look the blood spray LOL) 94-99… cmon this has always been addressing since the last 3 ops but nothing changed… same for the ping matter in FFA…
Always in lobbies with 150 pin players… I’m the only one who got 40-50 and still find a hard time killing them but on their side im easy prey
