I agree with most of what's written, minus the last part about host. In Gears 2 I knew when I was host, but since their using servers I really don't think anyone has host advantage except on a RARE occassion.

weapons arent more powerful when you have host, you just have an easier time in quick close range battles because of other teams lag.

also the snub pistol is really weak in gears 3, this guy seems to love his pistol. rifles will beat pistol every time. pistol is there for desperation times or using meat shield. the pistol pickups are good, maybe he was referring to those.

also the beta has been switching between dedicated servers and using host. its better than gears 2 and i bet a good amount of people didnt notice.

Yeah, Gears 3 uses a combination of dedicated servers and peer-to-peer. The guy that wrote this is simply saying that, if you notice that you are hosting, use it to your advantage.
