Rod Ferguson of Epic Games made a post last night explaining what is likely to happen with the ranking system in the near future. Good or bad for Gears fans? You be the judge!
lol look at how many times epic tried to fix the game, yet it scored 9.5s and 10s lol so pathetic. your gonna tell me a game with so many faults at launch was rated so well, and you want me to take reviews seriously? gtfo
Well the game does have it's faults just like any other game out there, but at least they are making some attempts to fix what is broken. Some game companies don't care if a game is "broken" and throw the gamers who are disappointed under the bus without making any effort to fix it. Epic is trying to fix what is wrong with Gears, and hopefully one day it will end up being a great Multiplayer experience.
There are so many people that play this game and try to exploit every little nook and cranny so they can have an advantage. This happens with every Shooter. Same thing will happen with KZ2 when it's being played by hundreds of thousands at a time, something a real Testing environment, before it leaves the developer, cannot accommodate/duplicate. I thought that patch that went out did Fix many things.. http://www.shacknews.com/on...
Most of those reviews were mainly about the Single-player, like PS3 owners saying that low review scores were because they didn't play the multi-player, which is "half of the experience."
i recently decided to play gears 1 just to remember the differences. gears 1 had a lot of exploits, and host advantage sucked. but gears 2 has those, plus it has a lot of features that EVERYONE hates, they can't seem to fix the shotgun no matter what, and it doesn't move as smooth. I wish i could goto cliffy B's house and demand my money back like that episode of southpark where they wanted their money back for passions. gears 1 was a great game, but epic didn't learn from any of their mistakes and actually managed to make a more broken version of gears 1. how do you spend 2 years making another game on the same engine and not fix the bugs and glitches??? Epic games = Epic fail. They gave up being a hardcore company in favor of maximizing profits. what a shame.
Might bring me back to the game especially if there's some form of reward system (but im a very hopeful man)
That sounds pretty elaborate for a "what if". I think they're actually deep into the revamping of the skill system. Either way, i hope they do it quick cuz i hate the ranking system they have now.And Sasanova, you gtfo. The game is great , it's the multiplayer that has bugs, which are mostly fixed. Games have faults but that does'nt mean they cannot be redeemed through patches.You good sir, are either a sony fanboy or a hater. Pick your poison
F*CK EPIC they better do it the slow matchmaking make me sick i only played 4 players match or maybe 5. its sick. FIX IT ASSHOLES
the multiplayer is awesome but the wait between is unacceptable sometimes. of course I haven't played in awhile so maybe it got better. I think they should just drop this whole ranked matchmaking system and throw everyone in together like COD4 does. It's fast and efficient and if your face gets owned then you learn to play better quicker. Or maybe do something like Counter-strike where you can chose what map to play and which people to play it with and stay with those people. Gah, both options are so much easier.
FIX THE LAG, ARCADE WEAPONS, & SLOW MATCHMAKING B4 MAKING MAPS, ACHIEVEMENTS, & RANKING CHANGES !!! OH, DID I MENTION TO PLEEEEEEEASE FIX THE LAG !!!!!!!!! And how about some Regional settings & the ability to choose what mode gamers want to play.... thx, & please hurry b4 everyone trades Gears 2 in for a MP that works.
How about get rid of ranking or add public non ranked matches
I already sold my copy of Gears 2 for 35 bucks. Main reason for selling it was because it was not fun to play online. I agree with whom ever said that the scores some of these reviewers gave this game must have been playing a totally different game or they never played it online.
gearz2 is a blast to play online and EPIC fixed the problemz with the waiting time a while a go. it takez me less than 30 secondz to find a game man, is it the companiez fault if u got a cheap a*s connection in a deserted place somewhere man... and not every game is perfect, killzone2 also has quite a few glitchez...trust me i played it and saw em myself... im not defending the 360 or anything but watch ur mouth...the gamez a blast 1 of the best looking gamez!!!!
last time i checked it still slow and take more than 15min. i think after they released the 2nd patch by few days. its the only game i faced with it problem like that EVER.
Didn't you get the note that replacing the letter "s" with "z" went out of style around the time I.O.U Clothing did? You're post just comes across foolish when you spell words like that. God, I hate when people do that.
i dont care about rank, all i want to do is just play a game without lag switch people cheating
And if this new ranking system is implemented, then there will be a visible penalty for quitting, so it would probably happen less. It is really the only thing about Gears 2 multiplayer that is a problem for me now. To all the people complaining about matchmaking time, when was the last time you played? It's gotten a lot better since the patch, and I never have much trouble finding a game. The update looks great, and I hope it is approved and implemented soon. It reminds me of the Call of Duty rank system.
how when im running, somebody is near me.. (i'm running mind you) they press the B button, and my guy stops on the drop of a dime and allows the chainsaw process to go through. Or what about when i shoot somebody revving their up lancer........................ and their damn near invincible, taking the shotgun to the chin and proceeding to chainsaw me. i thought the last patch was supposed to fix this, no?
I totally agree... we need a better ranking system.
They need to do this, the current ranking system is just a joke and a black hole for quitting.
