"If I could go back in time I would remove the sawed-off shotgun. Yes, I'm willing to admit when I'm wrong."

Yet here we are with Gears Judgement keeping the gun in the game, and removing the gnasher from the default loadout. Somebody really needs to fire the lead multiplayer designer for that game. His only previous experience is on Duke Nukem Forever, he shouldn't have a job in the industry after that, especially not overseeing the multiplayer component of such a major franchise.

That makes me think that Cliff probably wasn't given the authority to cut the gun, among other things. Hence, the resignation.

He was one of the head people at Epic Games, your probably reading a bit too much into things. 20+ years at the same job is a long time, especially if you just got married and hadn't really had time to take a break or any time for yourself.

I'm sad to see him go, mostly because he was good to the fans and an outspoken member of Epic Games, but there was more to Gears and Epic Games than Cliff. It was a team and it'll continue to be a team.

If he did have that power, why would he say 'Damn, I wish I cut that gun' days after leaving the place where he could have done just that?

congrats on not even listening to the devs.

Gnasher has been removed as a starting weapon for the Alpha version so that more people who have never played the game can have a chance at having fun at the conventions. As far as we know they said they are considering it to be a permanent in FFA. They are not saying anything on the traditional Gears MP because they're still testing it so everything you just said is a complete lie for the standard MP.

So congratulations on your ranting but lack of actually knowledge on the game.

I liked the Sawed Off, but it got nerfed so bad you cant even kill a pooch now.

If there is a thing they need to fix is the retro-lancer and hammerburst actives. Doesn't take many shots to down you from a distance, especially with those modded controllers with rapid fire.
