"It's a blast from the past for me watching the Gears of War tournament here at Major League Gaming, a parent company of GotFrag.com. Having seen the monster PC Gaming title, Counter-Strike, grow competitively before my eyes, I could instantly see the comparison to Gears of War.
From the Boomslang to AWP, to the respawn of players every round; Gears was, to a certain extent, Counter-Strike on the Xbox 360 competitively.
That's not all positive news though.
Just like CS, Gears of War has competitive growing pains to go through. A big one that both MLG and the makers of the game should have seen coming is ghosting."
