Gears 2: Title update 3 coming soon!

Not next week, but very soon

In the update:

Chainsaw "Invincibility" to be fixed
You will get up 2 seconds after being stunned by a smoke, no matter what
250 points worth of new achievements coming (Soon After)
Only host will lose experience if he quits
Rank 100 will use the Rank 5 symbol (100 EXP Based Levels)
New shotgun shield glitch has been fixed.
A country preference system is being added
Players who quit are going to be replaced by bots (Insane Level)
The Meatflag will no longer glitch out of the map
The Sniper hit detection is being fixed
Same delay to meleeing/chainsawing after Roadie Run, as was with shotgunning

Also other minor things:

Lag is set to be "prevented" in this Title Update
Two Piecing is addressed (further?)
More weapon balance will be coming
The Epic Crew plans on doing some "experimenting" with playlists
Epic plans on addressing standbyers to some extent


Also on the ranking change:

Rank and Level have nothing to do with each other. When TU3 hits, everyone is Level 1. Of course they'll still have their rank and be matched accordingly but we're all starting from the beginning experience wise.

ALSO NEW DLC TO COME SHORTLY AFTER!

Yes I would also like a source for this info. That country preference thing might be just what i need to start playing it online again.

Look at this Thread on the Gears of War Forums. http://gearsforums.epicgames.com/sho...d.php?t=654492

It was not started by a member of Epic but members of Epic Staff such as Rod Fergusson and Joe Graf have answered questions and addressed items in question in the thread. So should be proof enough as they are the developers and talk about the fixes in TU3.

If this is the real title update then this game might be fun again.

I hope all this is true, MP would be one of the best if it didn't have all these problems.

I just sold my copy because the multiplayer was almost unplayable. But I might have to rent it once this releases to see if things get better.

I wonder how many updates it will take before they get it right? Whatever, guess we'll have to wait and see.

It's a shame it won't be breaking the 1250 points barrier like Halo...

It will be; they said they're allowed to add up to 250 more points and they're taking advantage. That on top of the already 175 from DLC=1425

Im still baffled how a game with so many errors and glitches gets past "testers" and still released.
Wait... is this game still in the BETA stages and WE are the testers?

The biggest mistake Epic has made in all of this is KEEPING their testers...they are obviously not very good at all. To be fair...maybe they are good...but they just don't play the game the way the rest of the world plays it. Maybe they sit and hide and don't play aggressively.

I think at this point looking at how both games were received on the MP side...it would a monumental catastrophe...and an epic failure for them TO NOT make the 3rd game's MP an OPEN PUBLIC BETA!!!

I think they mean they are allowed to add up to 1250. And they have already done 1175. So the next "update" will be another 75g.

ive only played ONE match since the last update. People were still lagging out or quitting and I havent bothered with it since. But hopefully with this one I can get back on without being so frustrated before the match even starts hah.
And I swear if the achievements are like the last ones we got...

Goodie, I love and still play GoW2...

I'm loving the updates, and hoping the next patch of "new" content revolves around something called "Flashback Map Pack #2"...

Give me Fuel Depot, Mausoleum and ClockTower.

I really don't know how you can say anything bad about Old Bones or Mausoleum. But...whatever. As for the lying...there is a video that has floated for some time with several clips of Cliff and Rod talking to the media about how smooth the MP is, etc...on and on. After each clip glitchy, laggy gameplay footage is shown. It really serves an utter humiliatory slap in the face...which is exactly what they deserve!!! They have basically lied since the tech demo over a year ago. All we heard once Gears 2 was officially announced was how great this was going to be...and that was going to be. Well...in case you missed it...the online MP is a catastrophic mess. I guess I SHOULD be thankful they patched it...TWICE...with a 3rd one on the way...but what does that say?!?!?

I guess you could say that they were nice enough to do it...and you might have a point. I choose to take the outlook of they knew...THEY KNEW IT WAS TOTALLY F**KED from the word go and released it anyway. It was always about $$$...it's always been about $$$...ever since this generation's lifecycle began. It has never been about quality...only quantity. If every developer too Valve's approach, then the indutry wouldn't be where it is in many respects. Of course Valve has had to patch some of their games...but it's almost always been an exploit...not a glitch...or broken network code, etc.

I could go on forever about this one...but the bottom line is...Gears 2 was a ridiculous disappointment(I'm a huge Gears fanboy too...)...especially from an online MP tech standpoint. We are talking about the guys who created Unreal Tourney here!!! I personally feel that EPIC owes this community more than it will be willing to pay...as if we don't see right through all the smoke & mirrors.

They need to make the combustible map pack free or at max 400 points. Thank god they're fixing the ranking system, snipers, and smoke grenades.

Sweet, another achievement rulebreaker!!

That makes 3 now! Way to go Microsoft, you're being stepped on by game companies and letting your rules bend.

1425. Ridiculous.

I know what they should do with TU3 that would make everyone feel better. If they were to combine the GOW1 and GOW2 matchmaking. They should make it so that you have the party screen appear when you click on Multiplayer (like GOW2) then you should be able to either choose to find a specific game type with choices of hosts in a list (like GOW1) or host a game (like GOW1).
