Why there is no a mode just for fenix maps?

I want to play them but it takes ages untill TDM gets to one of those maps...

Stay Frosty is a Fenix Rising only list, I believe. TDM is in there, but I can understand not wanting to play with the overpowered Hammerburst. Kind of a neat list, but it seems like it is only for those with the acquired taste.

I played stay frosty for a few hours last night, definitely not a fenix only map selection. In 2 hours I played just two fenix maps, depth and academy. Both were good but they popped up a few times, none of the other fenix maps appeared and there was plenty of non dlc maps coming up.

Cause Epic doesn't know how to properly make a game?

I have found that the best way to get the new maps is to play in a ranked playlist. Usually one of them is one of the selections if not two or even all three choices given.

I wish we could get a Fenix Rising only list for Horde and Beast too. I hate spending 5-10 minutes looking for a match (not sure if the game's fault; my NAT type did drop to moderate due to router issues recently) only to not even have any of the new maps available as a voting option.

It would make too much sense. Y'know, putting up a DLC playlist when new DLC maps become available.

Instead, they put up the Stay Frosty playlist the day of the new DLC. Brilliant!

I understand that (I thought as much when the DLC dropped). But, why add "Stay Frosty" then? That should just be a flavor of the week like BOOM Snipes, alongside a playlist dedicated to whatever new DLC has been released.

I'm tired of getting Anvil 5 times (across Versus AND Beast Mode) whilst seeing none of the other new maps outside of private matches.

Damn COD and all the others for stealing this game's thunder (though maybe the number of players online only seem unusual because I've never been able to see a tally in previous GOW games).

Officially the STUPIDEST thing I've ever seen. I truly hope this is the future of gaming, cause, I've been spending WAY too much money on games. This would sure cure that.

Not a fair answer when the alternative is not being able to use maps that we paid extra money for.

You can hardly blame games like Battlefield 3, Skyrim and this year's COD for stealing this games thunder as they are all hugely popular and the first 2 in particular are great games.

It would be interesting to see actual number playing this compared to Gears 2. Looking at my friends list it seems far fewer are playing Gears 3 generally.

I think Epic are partly to blame because basically the online modes, with the exception of Beast and a slightly revamped Hoard are the same as before. Seriously 2 killed Gears 2 for making the game one long boring grind and this is no different.

In a desperate attempt to keep people playing the game we get Seriously 3. For many achievement completionists, Seriously 3 is a non starter due to time required. Others like myself keep grinding away at it but I have to say I had a very enjoyable 2 month break playing Battlefield 3 before returning to this for the new achievements the other week.

If it wasn't for Seriously 3 I would have moved on long ago.

You'd have to get paired with people that have the maps to play those maps online and alot of them don't have those maps to be honest for whatever reasons.
