More interested in the gametype than the double XP (like was said, level 100 is easy now anyway)

Sounds like Wingman, only with TDM rules - could be quite interesting.

This could be a great opportunity to boost TDM played + won matches + kills.

whether having double xp event or not, it's already very easy to level up to 100 as you can get xp bonus via unlocking medals, especially those onyx ones.

I agree, it's way too easy to reach the maximum rank. Hopefully they add prestige ranks; that would definitely encourage me to play more often.

Yes, I'd be glad if they have prestige ranks! The motivation will become a lot bigger!

There wasn't supposed to be a link, i was simply agreeing with the guy above me about how exp is pointless if you are going for seriously.

How about a weekend with 2x weapon kills, or even letting all kills in any mode (Vs., Horde, Campaign) count towards the weapon medals. Active Reloads, Spotting, Assists, Revives, and Weapon kills should all count regardless, especially with the total amount you need for those medals (and I know that I can boost in private matches, it is just that I like to play more than boost). Horde is my favorite mode and it sucks that that stuff doesn't count towards those medals.

...AND YES EVERYONE, I know that we are all going to get to level 100 very easily if you are going for Seriously 3.0 :-) I was just putting this out there for all to see in case somebody was trying to unlock a particular character, etc. (referring my original post). It was just a FYI to all... stop the hating :-)

Why are they doing double xp events so quickly? It's not like anyone is having trouble with it, people who play the game regularly that is.

Reaching level 100 is so simple that now when I get on a game there's usually 2 or 3 guys on each team at level 100 and usually they are shit and the lower level guys are the ones getting kills and caps, so really levels doesn't mean anything now other than it makes it look like they're good at the game but when the game starts people see that they are in fact rubbish

One time me and a team of level 30 something's beat an entire team of level 100 guys

So this is EPIC saying sorry for making Gears2 lvl 100 actually take more time then the average player would want to play, here's your free Gears3 wings. I don't get the point of double xp when you level up reasonably fast without going for medals...

Are people actually complaining that 100 is "too easy"? STFU

On a related note, is the double XP for ALL play types, or just the event type?

I wish they would've cut the game time limit down a bit so people wouldn't camp as much. Other then that brings out a bit of strategy if you're actually playing with a friend.

I don't get why someone would complain ranking up is easy? I'd rather it be "easy", than be like Gears 2 and take for-fucking-ever to do.

Yes, if you play a lot, you'll rank up pretty quick. I for one don't play a lot, so being able to rank up "quickly" isn't something to complain about.
