… but most of us can agree, taking our chances in random lobbies with strangers and/or having randoms in our games is 90% of the time a miserable experience. Escape is king when played with friends and players you trust are good and know their role.
More lobby less gameplay.
Players don’t understand venom.
Unnecessarily agro’s swarm in areas you need to buy your time.
Melee classes taking all amo boxes.
Melee classes do not melee.
What do you think caused this?
Why do most players behave this way and think it’s ok?
I mean, the game mode is called ESCAPE not Hive Assault, and killing everything in the hive doesn’t win you the game, closing the gates at the end does:smirk:. If I can run past everything not dying, why waste extra time killing enemies?
The 4 or 5 week character XP event is a big factor in what Horde and Escape has become. Now we have high levels with low cards thanks to this. Players just aren’t bothered learning classes, what works and what doesn’t work. If you not willing to at least learn a little bit about a mode then put the game away because you are actively ruining other peoples experiences.
Maybe if we got a few hives where sneaking is key this sort of behaviour wouldn’t happen as much (might have impacted and might have not lol) where a player runs off activating all the near by enemies or tries to run passed a group of aimbots lol. There was a time where I could converse and get players on board with an approach and vice versa but that time has come and gone lol.
I don’t mind a player who is just starting out, not performing well and is willing to learn a bit but I can’t stand a player who is just close minded and goes I do what I want when I want and eventually causes a team wipe.
Dont know if you’ve played any other online game or even PvP on Gears for that matter, but you’d realize very quickly how bad so many ppl are at video games. Perhaps it’s because they dont care and just playing for fun (crazy, I know), are intoxicated, trolling, inexperienced, ignorant of the 82829291 unwritten rules of meta, or maybe even just stupid.
Whatever the reason, this isn’t a thing that just exists in one game mode in a single game - its everywhere. Also, isnt there a thread exactly like this with hundreds of posts? Why make another one lol
