Gears of War 2
There'll be Another Gears of War 2 30x XP Event If...

Good old Epic Games. If they want to win something, they've got the XP to dangle in front of you like a carrot. And this time, they're offering an entire week's worth of 30x XP on Gears of War 2 if Gears of War 3 wins the 'IGN Most Anticipated Game Award'.

To do this, you need to click on over to IGN's E3 2011 page and tweet your most anticipated game from the ones listed. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and you'll find Gears of War 3 there, happily way out in front with 2,916 votes thus far. It's closest rival? That'll be Battlefield 3 with 1,876 tweets. Skyrim has a paltry 512.

"If Gears of War 3 wins the IGN Most Anticipated Game award, we'll do a week long E3 XP event in Gears 2 at 30x XP!" screams a post on the official Epic Games Facebook page. A whole week of 30x XP? That's got to be worth a click!

[Thanks, Conor]

Well I am already at the max and gears 3 is not my most anticipated, but definitely in top 3 after uncharted3 and Deus Ex... Still their bribing gets boring as fuck already...

So they are bribing people to win? How is that fair?! I mean if you really want to vote for it because you really cant wait to play it then fine, but votign for it for the 30x Exp, thats just unfair.

Sorry but after playing the BETA I'm not anticipating Gears of War 2.5, even if they want to bribe people with a 30x EXP week. Surely Skyrim, Battlefield or what will easily be the best game this year: Uncharted 3 would win this award on a normal vote, but now that the voting is sabotaged it's lost all credibility anyway.

I am a massive Gears fan, and I love that they have put on such high XP multipliers - Without them I wouldn't have my wings. But I don't and have never agreed with these bribery tactics they're using. Sure, I'm a hypocrite - I've voted for them and will do so again because I have friends that want to get their wings too, but surely they realise that it's a false victory? People are voting for their games just because they want these high XP multipliers and not because Gears 3 is their most anticipated game, because that's certainly my reasoning. I've played the beta, I love the beta, I love Gears 2 online - but Gears 3 is still behind LA Noire and Arkham City in my list this year. With that in mind - These are all good ways of marketing the game and making sure that it's always at the front of people's minds with Gears of War 3 on the horizon. To do XP events like this means that players with low levels can chip away at it and it gives them the incentive to keep on playing - and if they get enjoyment out of it the more likely they are to buy Gears of War 3 when it drops in September.

Don't vote for gears. I got my wings back in January on their 4th ish event. This would be there 10th 20+XP boost. I don't care how much exp boost they give gears of war isn't worthy of the award that they are trying to get from us.

If I cared about my wings, I'da gotten them already. Wasn't worth the perseverance with me. Glad I gave away my codes. It's 2 weeks I won't have wasted that I won't get back. Much like my previous ex. I'll set my sights on the campaign, horde/beast mode and that's it.

@13 - When you use a coupon at a store, do you complain that you didn't pay full price?

Think of this like an XP sale. It's a sale to get people playing the game again.

Who cares how you got there. With or without XP weekends.

Don't be that elitest @hole who's all like, "I got my wings without any XP weekends so, I'm better than you".

Epic Fails. I'm not even interested in 3 at all because of the feedback I've heard from friends with the beta. And resorting to this again, (when they totally lost their shit the first time to Fallout3) is just sad.

I don't like this bribery bullshit they keep doing. It makes Epic look like a bunch of assholes when in fact they are a great Developer that don't even need to do this bribery bullshit.

I already got my level 100 but I'll vote anyway for the people that need this EXP event. I know there's a lot of people out there that have full time jobs and are in desperate need of EXP events like this.

might be different had bioshock been on the list though...
probelm is with all these stupidly high experience events is everyone will have there wings, but thanks to them ranking up from 50 - 100 in a day or before they've played on all the snowblind there going to unlock both 50 and 100 on the same day and not get the reward for it in gears 3:D

@ 27 - Newsflash. Boosting doesn't count as legit. You want legit? Jump in matches with no other buddies and ride the wave.

That's a legitimite way to earn. Boosting with friends is fine and dandy but it's a huge advantage and you're kind of giving each other the levels/xp. You're not rightfully earning it.

@ 40 - While they DO want you to complete it for the third game, there's still time and the point is to enjoy the longevity of it. More than enough people earned their wings and put the game aside and moved on. That's just sad for fan loyalty IMO. 30x is better than 2x when you break it down and regardless, Gears has offered more xp than any other games xp events combined. Mostly anyway. Me though? Not worth it. Campaign when 3 hits and hopefully it's a gorgeous conclusion.

Hopefully GoW wins so I can fire it up and maybe gets my wings in one week. :)

I would probably put Gears 3 as my most anticipated shooter, but not game. Sure, I love Battlefield with a passion, but im just worried that it will be a single runthrough of the campaign then sit there and play competitive multiplayer for the rest of the time. Gears should at least be a nice 4-player co-op run, than multiplayer, beast mode, and horde.Also, im pretty sure ME3 was pushed back to 2012.

@8: It's a popularity contest. All of these things are. And many companies do things like this to get more votes in these popularity contests. None of these types of polls are ever worth anything more than telling you which company was able to rally the largest number of fans. It never means that this game is the best game, or this character is awesome, or this game is really the most anticipated. It just means that company did the best job rallying fans.

Thinking that any of these types of polls mean anything more than that means you're taking them too seriously.

They should try to win these awards on the games merits. If Gears 3 is good enough to be hotly anticipated (i think it is) then it will win, you don't need to 'buy' votes off people. That's what i'd expect FIFA to demand.

Aright quit the hating, we all voted for these events when we needed them, and now were better than everyone because we already achieved it? Gears 3 would win regardless. And if you don't think so, the why hate a company for developing such a solid multi fan base that this can actually influence a poll (with really attractive looking games nonetheless!)

@56 They failed to influence fans last time with voting for the Gears series over Fallout. They can try to rally fans, but those that don't just want xp won't go for it, and vote for real. I enjoyed both Gears thus far, but with shooters I'm usually only a campaign person. I'm good with the itchy trigger finger for my fighting games online, but aside from games that are oldschool or L4D, I get my butt shot off. I will get Gears 3 sometime down the line for the campaign and to see what happens next, but totally not anticipated at all.

Last time they had 20x EXP, I never bothered to reach level 100. Ever since then, I've been longing for another event so I could finally reach 100. Looks like that opportunity is a'knockin' at last.

@ 57 - Oh I'm sure they don't have the most xp events but for a combined xp effort, I'd say they're the front runners. They've had more xp WEEKS as opposed to weekends as well plus they do certain holidays. It's like most are saying, it's coming off too much as a bribe especially with the circumstances of winning a poll to reward the player. Big pass for me.

Shiiit I've been waiting for Gears 3 since Gears 1. Never played Battlefield before so I obviously don't understand the love that it's getting. Might have to check it out and see what I'm missing. Not an RPG guy and superhero games are hit and miss for me. For me personally it's between Gears 3 and F3AR, but naturally I expect Gear 3 will be better.

I've never played GoW 2 before, but from what my friends say, it's really an awesome game. It's good that they do this 30xp weekend, but it looks to me that the devs don't really trust their game to be good by bribing people.

Looks like gears of war 3 has a comfortable lead right now, by ~1,500 votes. I don't tweet, so I'm going to vote, but I would like another xp event. It takes me probably 50 good games just to level up once, so this would be nice.

@70 It's just an honest attitude. Them doing this multiple times, as other people pointed out makes them seem like they think their games might not be up to snuff these days. And as I said, I did enjoy the first two GOW games, but I can only deal with glitchy/laggy MP for so long in any kind of games period, so I try to reserve them for fighters. I'd say this was a popularity contest in the long run, like how the Smithsonian VG exhibit ended up being for the most part, but thankfully Gears LOST in that one...probably because they didn't bribe people. Otherwise that would've been in a friggin museum as "Art of videogames", instead of Bioshock which was some good art, between graphics, stortytelling, and all else. Gears gets old after awhile with its heavily MP reliance, I like good games.

Dont get me wrong but Gears is really good (one of my favorites) but you shouldnt brinbe people so they can get there wings, if you wanted wings so bad you could have easily gotten them by now. I mean I got mine cause I thought 4 times XP couldn't be toped so I played like crazy. But no 30x... They are handing them out like candy. There isn't a point of feeling accomplished in haveing wings anymore... :(

I played the beta, and the only part of gears 3 that I'm looking forward to is the end of the trilogy's story. Battlefield 3 is gonna be massive IMO, and no matter what people say about the gears 3 multiplayer, it can be summed up with the simple phrase, "Same Old Shit, Brand New Logo."

I'm just ROFL'ing on how serious people are taking this Bribe issue.

All they want is their moment and they're doing whatever they can to do it. I've heard and seen worse ways of boosting votes from Companies and people.

Don't you think if DICE or other companies cared they'd do a move similar to this? Exactly.

Not entirely sure why they're doing this. What exactly do they get from gettting the 'most anticipated' award?

Meh, I couldn't give a stuff really. I like Gears well enough, but it's a choice of the same old shit or a completely revamped Elder Scrolls that looks epic at every turn. No brainer really, roll on November 11.

Do Epic really get that butthurt over losing these sorts of things? Kind of sad to bribe for votes. Cliffy B, is one of my most hated people in the gaming industry. I've quite enjoyed the Gears series but I hate that man with a passion, such a pompous douchebag. If I didn't think Twatter was an even bigger waste of time than Fecesbook I'd be voting for Skyrim. I'll be giving Gears 3 a whirl, but Skyrim will consume my free time like a fat man consumes cupcakes. Ravenously.

Its sad that Epic needs to bribe people to get awards, but they'll lose again because it bites them in the ass just like it did in G4's Deathmatch. I don't see Gears 3 winning that since they will be better titles out there like Batman: Arkham City, Rage, and Skyrim while thats just a small amount of the upcoming games to be released.

@ 88. DICE has done some bribing like including the B3 Beta on MoH, which they killed MoH by designing that bad MP.

@ 92. Vote with your head instead of going with the achievements.

@ 93. I would say that Gears 3 would be the most anticipated game only if you're a diehard Gears fan especially when there's a long list of better titles coming out after its release. Gears 3 will be a good game while it won't be the best.

@ 94. You know that won't happen because of the MLG kids and scrubs while they need to nerf the Gnasher and the sawed off.

@ 95. Yes they need to do that especially when they failed to beat Fallout with a similar bribe earlier this year.

The GoW3 beta was pure shit. It was nothing but Gnasher rushers, Sawn-Off campers and power-weapon campers. Sadly, I played the beta once a week for the unlocks then deleted it from my HDD. I've NEVER gotten as angry playing a game as I did this. I will only be playing co-op story, beast and horde modes and bots only matches from here on out when it releases. Come on fanboys with the thumbs down (like it matters which thumbs you give me, lol), but let's face it.....the beta is an EPIC fail.

@26 - Did you even read my comment at all?

I said in there that if it wasn't for the XP multipliers I would NOT have my wings. I don't disagree with the XP multipliers at all, and in fact I think it's a good way of making sure the game is played a lot - it gives people incentive to play. I simply said I didn't like the fact that they have to try and bribe us to vote for them in things like this. Just give the XP events away anyway, no need for them to go saying "oh make sure we win this and we'll throw XP at you".

I don't understand how you can read my comment and think that I'm complaining about the XP multipliers and/or trying to brag that I'm some "elitist" player that hit level 100 without the XP events. Seems to me like you've just read what you wanted to read and not what I actually said.

Welp, looks like I'm not voting. Never registered for Twitter before, and I'm not about to now. That said, I wouldn't vote for Gears even if I did - sure, I need the XP, but I ain't about to sacrifice my integrity and lie just because they decided to try to bribe us. AGAIN. That said, my vote would go to ME3, or would if it were still coming out in 2011, anyway. Since it's not, I might go with Deus Ex or Skyrim, just because they're coming out sooner, and both of them are going to be -huge-.

Honestly I think the only reason they're still doing things this high are because people are gonna stop playing entirely once GoW3 comes out. I just got it in January (I know, real slow) and I stopped once I hit about 20. I love these because it makes the wings less impossible to get with you and your other self being the only ones online. What I don't like is that wings used to be a bragging right for Gears players (well, as far as bragging rights can go for video games) but either way, I wouldn't be surprised if they won the contest without the bribe (not that it helped when they had the decision between Gears and... I think it was Fallout) but I wouldn't be surprised either if they don't. Ton's of great games coming, and it'll be interesting to see who wins.

Those numbers are way off anyway, if you look at IGN now GoW3 only has 1227. 500 behind BF3. Don't agree with them announcing it up front, would have been more classy to wait and see' then do that as a thank you to fans who voted.

I don't understand why people are annoyed by this. I applaud Epic for keeping the interest in Gears 2 before Gears 3 ships. Not everybody got Gears 2 when released so events like this are good for levelling.

I voted for Gears 3 even though I'm looking forward to Battlefield 3 more. I don't feel guilty that I digitally betrayed Battlefield :)

@ 113. You won't get any Hate from me at all because its basically cheating to get your Wings with all of those crazy XP bonus weeks and weekends.

@ 114. Epic could do that as a thank you to their fans while they would rather cheat with bribery, which they didn't learn from the last with the whole Deathmatch with Fallout.

@ 115. Epic isn't looking out for the Gears fanbase especially when most of the updates have screwed up Gears 2. They're just looking for a cheap Victory because they can't Win without cheating and they're gonna lose again especially when they announced this bribe way to early to make a difference.

@112 - It's x30. So if you score, say 1,000 points in Warzone, you'll get over 30,000 XP for doing so.

@116 - What about somebody who has played probably 95% of the time at normal (or x2) XP but still participated in the XP events, playing legit games (i.e. Warzone), and never boosting? Would you still class that as cheating? Yes I have played through most of the XP events and without them I wouldn't have my wings - But I have never resorted to KOTH boosting as I only ever play Warzone or Guardian. Personally I don't see a problem with that or anybody else who's gained the wings in that way. I still play GOW2 now even after that, such is my love for the game.

@115 & 116 - I think that it's good marketing/business sense for Epic to keep people interested in playing the GOW games, it keeps the franchise in the front of your mind and I would assume makes it more likely for those who are maybe on the fence about GOW3 to lean towards picking it up when it's released. I just don't agree with them effectively trying to fix voting polls their games are involved in. Whether there's a prize for them in it or whether it's just so they can say "oh look we won that poll woohoo!" it's a bit of a rubbish tactic, I'm sure their games would get a whole host of votes without any incentive anyway.

@ 118. Either way you did it the easy way as using more then x2 XP to get your Wings. You didn't cheat while it feels to me that anything above x2 XP is a cheat. Its fine to get x2 XP while anything above that is pushing it.

Its bad marketing because the whole bribery alienates the Gears fanbase especially when people are that desperate to get their Wings for those crazy XP events. Most of the Community should have their Wings by now, which would make those XP events useless. Epic does wanna fix the polls because they can't Win without that while with their record then they'll lose either way. Just by looking at this comment board people are voting for the XP bonus, which thats the sad part because the bribe is working on some people.

@ 119. Thank you while I'll thank you for creating a nice discussion while I hope I didn't create an argument because some people on this site will argue about anything.

@ 120. I lost respect for Epic when Cliffy B was arrested multiple times for being a Pedophile while its had to regain their respect when they decide to bribe to try to win awards.

@ 121. Epic has acted like that before the bribes because it started when Cliffy let fame get the better of him.

I don't see how it's "sad" to vote for this in hopes of getting a bonus XP event, especially one of this magnitude. It's an opinion poll ffs, not some major competition with prestige on the line.

What boggles my mind is that it's actually Battlefield 3 that's giving Gears the most competition. I'd imagine Skyrim, Mass Effect 3 (bogus entry), or Batman Arkham City would be the toughest competition.

You do know that this is still the beginning of this poll, which means that this is anyone's ball game even if Epic needs to cheat to get votes.

I just looked at the votes and GOW3 has over 3000 votes. There isnt another game even over a 1000. The only reason why Gears is going to win is because of this bribe. I know this has been said probably over a 100 times in this thread, but it just pisses me off. BF3 and ME3 would be in a close tie probably with GOW3 if not for this crap.

It's called sarcasm.

I'll be lying to myself and the world, but I'll vote for GoW3 (even though it's all about that Skyrim/Deus Ex-ness).

Since these most-anticipated/GotY/Top-Whatever lists are all subjective and irrelevant, and so are rankings in most online games (including GoW2), I'm kind of surprised at the amount of people who have poured into this complain; people are even replying to comments in the 100's (even if it's mostly shit-talk and co-signing shit talk).

I voted for Skyrim, by far the most anticipated game this year in my opinion. Epic have a bloody cheek bribing for votes.

I'll be playing Gears 3 for the main story I could care less about multiplayer that's just a bonus I have fallen for the story and that's it. Go vote for a Call of Duty clone imma vote for story line.

So the only way they can have enough votes is to offer a 30x EXP weekend? Did Red Dead Redemption try to do this last month and still end up loosing?

Eh. Ordinarily, I'd vote for Mass Effect 3. After that, Deuz Ex or Skyrim. I suppose I'll refrain from voting if it makes people happy and earns them a thingie, though I can't say that I care much for Gears, myself..

If their game is so good they don't need to bribe people if they win now it's not because people are psyched for Gears 3 and that is not a way to win!!

@ 145. That was actually Epic trying to make Gears win against Fallout in G4's Deathmatch, which Fallout won against Gears while that bribe helped out Fallout more it did with Gears.

@ 147. Agreed because Epic needs to cheat to get a chance to win.

@8 I agree, it's influencing gamers votes which a company like epic shouldn't need to do.

Well there's my vote. Should be interesting as I recently picked up the Gears of War collection but haven't had the chance to play Gears 2 online yet. Guess I can get a really good start if this wins.

@ 154. Its really sad if Gears 3 would win especially when Epic needs to cheat to win an Internet poll.

Has there been any updates regarding the xp event? There seems to be a complete lack of news regarding this and I would love to know when it is so that I can get a couple more levels up.
