Gears of War 2 TU3 and New Maps Dated (More Achievements Confirmed)

172
Alan Pettit

Gears of War Title Update 3 will be applied March 24th. It will include the following:

  • New experience-based ranking system: The new system gives you 100 levels of player experience, gained through scoring in Public matches. The game still uses TrueSkill to set up the most competitive matches possible, but skill ranks are now hidden. Players who quit matches early see their experience docked as a penalty.
  • Public Match autobalancing: Bots now automatically join a Public Match to fill any slots left vacant by players who quit early or disconnect.
  • Improvements: You get region preference for matchmaking, improved standby detection, playlist optimization, plus nine new achievements—six of which require the Snowblind Map Pack—worth a total of 250 points.
  • Exploit fixes: Title Update 3 eliminates the ability to mantle greater distances by swapping weapons during cover slide and to melee attack through walls while holding an enemy weapon, plus adding many more fixes.
  • General fixes: These include more reliable chainsaw interruption detection, improved headshot detection for certain character model heads, improved flag AI in Submission games, plus other fixes.
  • Balancing: Title Update 3 makes changes to Subway weapon spawns for greater balance, reductions to smoke-grenade stun duration, an increase to the forward angle that triggers chainsaw duels, and several other balance revisions.

The nine new achievements are as follows (the first three can be earned by anyone, the last six require the Snowblind Map Pack) and will bring the Gears of War 2 total to the odd 1425:

  • "Rookie Gear" (10 points): Earn enough multiplayer experience to reach level 5 (Public only).
  • "Seasoned Gear" (20 points): Earn enough multiplayer experience to reach level 15 (Public only).
  • "Battle-Tested Gear" (30 points): Earn enough multiplayer experience to reach level 25 (Public only).
  • "Battle-Hardened Gear" (50 points): Reach level 50 and play a match on each of the four Snowblind Map Pack maps (Public only).
  • "Veteran Gear" (75 points): Reach level 100 and win a match on each of the four Snowblind Map Pack maps (Public only).
  • "Never Eat Red Snow" (20 points): Complete waves 1 through 10 on all Snowblind Map Pack maps in Horde (any difficulty).
  • "Icy Dead People" (25 points): Complete waves 1 through 50 on any Snowblind Map Pack map in Horde (any difficulty).
  • "Frigid Body Dynamics" (5 points): Play a multiplayer match on each of the four Snowblind Map Pack maps (any mode).
  • "The Weather Outside Is Lethal" (15 points): Win a multiplayer match on each of the four Snowblind Map Pack maps (any mode).

The second map pack titled "Snowblind" will include the following and arrive one week later on March 31st. No price has been set, but assume 800MSP like the Combustible pack.

  • Grind Yard, a massive industrial complex with low bunkers and high sniping positions.
  • Under Hill, which takes players through snowbound tunnels and beyond.
  • Courtyard, a wide-open battle royale.
  • Fuel Depot, a Gears 1 remake, back with a blast of winter courtesy of Mother Nature, aka Epic Games.
Judging by the point add-on progression, I am inclined to believe we will be seeing a third map pack before all is said and done. MP1 added 175 points, MP2 will add 250 and if you follow the progression, MP3 would add 325 to bring the grand total in line with Halo 3's 1750. This is of course just my speculation, but it sounds good, yeah?
 
Actually someone who posted in the comments made a good point (which is sadly a rare occasion). Back in February we reported about Gears writer Joshua Ortega letting slip that there would be Single Player DLC in the future sometime. Perhaps instead of a third map pack, the last 325 points will instead come from whatever SP DLC Epic has in store?

  • Cool. Now 1425 is a very odd total...
  • wow they're just passin' out the achievements for this game
  • so the achievements are in the update and the update is free? no kiddin'? i mean, epic and stuff? you can't be serious! :-D
  • sweet bout time
  • Wow shweeet!
  • ok but 800MP for a map pack is insane should be 400mp
  • nice no more stoping matches cuz of quiting
  • yeah baby gimme more achievements for gears 1425 ftw :P
  • @5, you still have to buy the snowblind maps for some of the achievements.
  • woops I mean @6
  • I might pick this up, but I still haven't picked up the first map pack. I prefer to play with my friends, and most of them play CoD5, so that's what I play
  • More evil $$$ achievements, and lame 1250 cap breaking. Microsoft and Epic hate completionists.
  • I actually said "yes!" out loud when I read that bots will fill in for quit players in public matches. Why they didn't think of this before, idk.
  • no matter the price, ill meet you guys on the battlefield - day one of release
  • interesting
  • great, sounds very good
  • the new ranking system and points penalty will really help the game as i was sick of waiting to find suitable players and those ass holes who quit games early
  • looks good
  • Wonder how ridiculous of a grind getting to level 100 will be. *sigh*
  • I'll wait till its free?.....hopefully they make the maps free eventually like gears 1....
  • im done with dlc. this is getting retarded.. put the content in the dam game already
  • I'm pumped for fuel depot.
  • Finaly the freaking quitters will be penalized and please Epic...FIX MATCHMAKING!
  • no.......
  • OMG I CANT WAIT !!!!
  • wooooop
  • This might make me check out Gears2 again, tho im not going to pay for the maps.
  • Sweet!
  • sorry to post twice, but i hope the remaining 325gamerscore that would make it 1750 are new campaign missons
  • level 100 is gonna take ages... o well atleast the kills go towards serioulsy 2.0!! Cant wait man.. gonna be sick!! This is the only game I care about on Xbox... well maybe Lips aswell...
  • What happened to my single-player achievements? The MP was really underwhelming for me, so getting to Rank 100 is going to be a chore.
  • A more reliable multiplayer experience? No way! Bots will definitely make me start the multiplayer when I get my copy of this. Don't know that I'll dl Snowblind, though, still need to get Combustible and Flashback.
  • still not paying for dlc if its 800 again but its good to know I can still earn somethin
  • Fuel Depot...returns!?!?!?!!? SHIIIIIIIIT YEAH! I'm sold on that ALONE! As for a 3rd map pack for the achievements, Naw, single player DLC please!
  • I'm looking forward to the ranking update... idk about the map pack... is it really worth 800pts?
  • I can't say I'm overly excited about the bots. i mean how useful will they actually be? especially when there's one on both teams and they just sit there waiting for each other and never attack. anyway, i really hope the localized matchmaking feature will get rid of the incredible lag that has kept me from playing. my school's internet isnt exactly up to par with the rest of the world so hopefully that will get me actually shooting bullets instead of blanks
  • Max should be 1500 imo
  • all i can say is thank you epic this will fix my problems with the ranks gonna actually start getting into this game again
  • YES FUEL DEPOT FTW
  • woo woo
  • That's awesome! too bad getting to level 100 is probly gonna take forever =/
  • This actually sort of upsets me. I got the game when it came out, got 950GS (no Seriously 2.0), and called it a day and sold it. So yeah, my completion just went from 95% to 67%. :( Maybe I'll borrow it from somebody just to pick up the free achievements.
  • Im not wasting any money for any new maps.Whats the point And they finally fixed all of the problems.I hate it when the game is uneven or there are people who leave or how long it takes to get to a game
  • 1425? wtf.. ill start playing this again.. they are def gonna go higher than 1425.. gears 1 had 1250 over a few years.. this has 1425 in like 5 months but i think you should be able to join games and stuff like cod.. a bot isnt really that big of a difference
  • coolio
  • might try and get those free achievs before i trade this in...
  • Fuel Depot = Fuc Yes!!! this has me sold alone. gonna be some "epic" grinding needed for lvl 100 though.
  • Maybe this will make me actually want to play the game. Hopefully they really fix the smokes and the chainsaw. That's the biggest thing in the update.
  • This will for sure get me back into Gears 2! The fixes sound perfect and as soon as I saw Fuel Depot in the map pack I am basically forced to purchase it.
  • that new bot thing is awesome, i just played a match 1 on 5 bc all the players on my team quit haha
  • I'm really glad they're adding more achievements. it keeps the game fresh for longer, IMO.
  • Oh great achievements that require us to play multi player loads in order to get them i hate when games have achievements like that i would rather have achievements that reflect your skill rather than how much time you spent playing the game. And the list of fixes just shows how much is wrong and unbalanced in this fun but very broken game.
  • I just jizzed my pants lol
  • Sweet i might actually be able to get into the multiplayer now that there is going to be an acctual good ranking system
  • Courtyard is a gears 1 PC remake as well.
  • FUCK MICROSOFT!!!!!!!!!!! if they only now realise 1250 points cap is way too low, make it 250 per DLc instead of per GAME, not this lousy crap!!!!! expecially now with the ps3's trophies competition!!!!! ASS-FUCKING-HOLES!
  • this sucks, i have to get another copy of GoW2, mines broke cheap ass discs
  • ye been waiting for this update i have been following its progress on gearsofwar.com . and if you go there you will notice that it says "insane" bots are being added in replace of quitters/disconnects
  • It's nice that Epic continues to update the game. I personally don't play GoW2 anymore, but after this update I may give it another go and see how the game plays. I don't expect to really love the multiplayer gameplay still, but it's free for the TU and might be enjoyable for a few rounds with friends.
  • controversial MP only achievements! accept for the horde mode pair I guess, but Horde is boring single player...
  • Wasn't Fuel Depot released in the Combustible map pack?
  • I knew they would throw that level 100 achievement in their! God damn it!!! All excited Seriously 2.0 was easy, and they pull this shit... Looks like I get to play this game for the rest of the year now.
  • I knew when they announced the new rank system they would make those stupid bullshit level achievements to go with it. Funny thing is we only get those crappy achievement because the system that shipped with the game sucked, I'm so disappointed
  • Gears not a good game! epic has proved one thing,they cannot develop good games as well as make a good mp game!! gears 1 had so many patches applied to it to make it a disgrace and gears 2 looks no better and is just a clone of the first game.I bought gears 1 new and was dissapointed and got the second game for free,so yeah im not gonna pay 800msp for a horrible deved pos like this no way,i'll pass.
  • or maby they'll make maps without stupid achievements. so i can finally play a game and not worry about cheevers
  • so basically in the month or march we have codwaw map pack gow2 map pack the pitt for fallout 3 and most likley left 4 dead survivial mode and new maps wow thats alot
  • Good Shit.
  • Oh my GOD!!!! This fixes almost all my complaints. New maps, achievements and updates are always welcome. I just wish that there weren't so many horde achievements. I like Horde but, its like I'm forcing myself to play it. I am going to be up all night with the skill system. And so many people seem to quit my matches that its like half the people left in the end. The bots and penalties should help. Hope that the update will help find matches quicker.
  • this sounds good, a new ranking system dunno why people complain about the 1250 CAP, having more achievements is a good thing, and i think they should rethink the DLC gamerscore maybe the bigger the expansion the more cheevs it would have.
  • thank god!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • @ #62 i thought it was too not sure why there releasing it again?
  • i'm looking forward to the ranking up system...
  • YEY NEW DLC, Sound good, and fixing some multiplayer issues, and some new achievements to top it off :D Sure to buy this
  • why dont they just make every game have 2000+ gscore, this is dumb, and i sold this game, is it good?
  • Nice for them to up the ante a little. Going to get the new maps for sure.
  • Awesome the new maps should be great and my favorite map from Gears 1 - Fuel Depot returns.
  • Fuel Depot was GOW best map, about time they put a remake in GOW2. But the gamerscore limit per game is getting stupid now.
  • Agree with #9
  • If I'd known Gears was going the way of Halo with an insane GS and tons of online achievements I would've never bought Gears 2. I hate the MP for my own reasons and the SP just is not good enough to have another ~60% completion game on my account. Cliffy B. aka the most arrogant man on the planet, isn't getting any money out of my for Gears 3.
  • now ill play gears again after 3 weeks..i thought it lost its flavor for a while but u can always count on EPIC to spice things up =]....i'm impressed
  • btw to demon above my comment...thats all fine and well with your opinion...many dont like the MP..it IS different and single player..i thought it was a pretty good ride but when ya go to cliffy B..im sorry bro i think da dude's da man lol...but again my opinion...suffice it to say..thru a few little comments here and there...no one can deny the huge respect that this game has...(for w.e reason you may think) the game is big..thats all i just wanted to state my opinion;]
  • one last thing lmao i agree wit #9 too...WAY too many points/money
  • awesome!!!!!
  • Overall im glad things are getting sorted. I've heard numerous rumours that the 325G installment WILL be single player.. (but its just a rumour) any ideas about how long rank 100 will take :-|.. also, i think that bots in a public game is the worst idea in the game.. i mean, sure people who quit get replaced, but by BOTS!, the bots are stupid, even on insane. we will have to wait to stalemate every single game. its ridiculous. but .. peace .. going to have to try and get some ms points before the 24th:)
  • Awesome. Finally they come out with a good ranking system.
  • I cant wait this series is banging I cant wait for three
  • Microsoft needs to smash them for going over the limit. ~Bryce
  • Yesss, Fuel Depot is Back in the game baby. Cant wait for the broken MP to be fixed. maps just make the game more funn, im got lots of points left so ill just buy the dlc and finally an exp system. this wil trigger alot of ppl to get back to gears. loads of fixes wich i REALLY appreciate. damnnit about time. so lemme see ive got 10 days left to grind 66k kills for seriously 2.0 capture 3 more meatfags and win 3 more annex games on the FBMP and then ill be ready for the new DLC love the game hate MP thank god they are trying to fix this. btw love the addition of region preferrance for better connection. the most important in my opinion 99% of al frustrations begin with laggy games peace
  • Excited to hear Fuel Depot is coming back. It was a great map.
  • Wow am I happy to read this! Finally less people will be quitting ust cuz they didnt get a map/mode that they wanted! And finally those who quit will be replaced with bots! And of course, Fuel Depot, one of my favs from Gears 1. I really wish Raven Down and Garden were put in too but maybe save those for the Gears 3 Flashback pack.
  • I always thought fuel depot should've been in the flashback maps instead of tyro station or mansion, but I sure am glad to see it coming back. I need some microsoft points...
  • Stop with the friggin' horde achievements!!
  • Whoa time to put gears 2 back in the disc tray aha
  • Niceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
  • yeah maybe now i can finally play the game without getiing annoyed:) about time fuel depot came back:P
  • Fixes I'm looking forward to are the Bot joining when someone quits and better standby detection. It happens too much. Also the chainsaw interruption should stop all those who use it as a crutch. Can't wait. There are so many things wrong with the game, but it is very reassuring to see the company trying to fix them on a regular basis. It may turn out to be good game in the end.
  • Nice new maps! But with the new ranking system, all the matches that I played too not lose rank will be for nothing!!
  • Level 100...? : (
  • fuck yeah
  • the games still a broken slapped together piece of shit that epic should be ashamed of. This game doesn't need a patch, its online needs a complete renovation.
  • Looks good, may get me into Gears 2. I wanna go for the the full score though, doubt i will get it.
  • sounds totally awesome. i wonder how long it will take to get the rank 100 achievement. im happy though that they finally give some multiplayer achievements that r actually a challenge and cant be boosted in private matches.
  • New ranking system! Bots when people quit! Balancing! This could are I say, make Ranked Fun again!?
  • Hell fucking yes, first Resident Evil 5, now this, great day to be a gamer.
  • Wow. Rank achievements are extremely stupid, well, online achievements overall are dumb. Great job Cliffy, first you give us a gold gun, then a smoke grenade that has a blast radius of an entire map. And now a dumb 100 ranks system? I think he's just trying to get us to play. Not so much of just adding achievements as so many people, I being one, bitch about how dumb online is.
  • @#101 exactly no update could fix it. Its pathetic that epic have released fuel depot to try and lure gears 1 players back, and 800mp? it should be free as an apology for creating such shit
  • YAY!!!!!!!!!! Might pick this up because of that level 100 achievement. I'll go for first in the world to get it!
  • Don't make me be first on the site to get to level 100... God knows how long that will take.
  • Sweet! I love DLC, it keeps games exciting and fun.
  • Halo Wars + Fallout 3 Content + GoW2 TU3 = OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG *Head explodes*
  • Smoke grenades need to be removed fully...........
  • Man, they really like to milk me for achivements right? Oh well... I'll bite. But after that, I'm selling this crap game.
  • comment 57 u r so right fuck microsoft in there asses y dont they just bring out a dlc for every game out and make it 400MSPs thats another fast way to rip people off you fucking cuntS STOP BRINGING OUT DLCS FOR GAMES AFTER A WEEK OR 2 OF RELEASE UR JUST TAKING THE PISS TRYING TO MAKE MORE MONEY I WANT TO ATLEAST PLAY THE FUCKING GAME BEFOR I HAVE TO THINK ABOUT BUYING THE BLOODY DLC U RELEASE THE DAY AFTER U BRING OUT SKATE2 DLC WITHIN THE FIRST WEEK AND REZ5 DLC CONFIRMED BEFOR THE GAMES EVEN RELEASED IN THE UK REALLY I FUCKING HATE THE WAY THIS SHIT HAS STARTED GOIN ON.
  • Yeah More Gears 2 Maps
  • Yea New Maps And ACHIEVEMENTS!!
  • Hot Sexy, a better ranking system!
  • I still dont get why Fuel Depot was not one of the 4 flashback maps released at launch but Subway was. OH wait I know so they could charge us 800 MSP for a map they know everyone wanted in the first place. Wanna bet in TU4 they will release War Machine with a blast of winter air.
  • I can't wait till to play the new Fuel Depot.
  • cant wait 4 this im gona do it 4 sure
  • Epic never said it will be 800 MS points.... But I bet it will. Gears 2 fails at everything Gears 1 was good at. I'm sorry, but it's just broken in comparison!
  • I dont know why so many people are complaining that there is too much gamerscore. "Oh boo hoo, I had 1175/1175 for this game and now i have 1175/1425" WHO CARES!!!!
  • why didnt they put fuel depot on the flash back map pack?
  • They are just feeding off of people like us. People that frequent this website are suckers for achievements, so they know that they will a goof profit from the DLC. I'm sure many people will buy this. Even if you fall for this marketing ploy, I beg you all not to download NCAA Basketball 09 MME fro 1200 points. What a ripoff!
  • Awesome!!! I might start playing Public matches again
  • I wonder how long it will take to hit 100... a bunch of the fixes are things I have wanted forever... here's hoping they got it right. :)
  • asweome! a nice new set of cheevos, the only problem is this, my mates dont get points often so can't play with them
  • Sounds good, i need to get the map packs though.
  • Why so many online achievements for a game with such a flawed multiplayer?? Makes no sense!
  • Dude, no matter how much all of you complain, people are still gonna buy it.. Tbh, im not gonna buy the maps. Doesnt mean im gonna complain because im not gonna get it.. And so what if they want more money, you think of another way that they are gonna survive the recession dumb asses. and @117, learn to spell if your gonna rant in capital letters xD
  • And @128 the multiplayer isn't flawed, atleast unlike gears 1 it works and you dont have the same dumbasses using the same gametype, the same maps and SNIPERS!!!! >:(
  • and if you think these guys are trying to make too much money: Look at street fighter.. 200 quid for a stupid statue? screw that. and thats got dlc like every day since!
  • nope... not at all this game is not getting another penny from me... especially for some of the most uninventive achievements ive ever seen
  • Still havnt got the first map pack, but fuel depot is a MUST!11
  • hopefully the combustible map pack is free when this 1 comes out :P still haven't when past the 1000g on this game ^^
  • if you dont have points or gold account for this great game use this free site http://www.prizerebel.com/index.php?r=1055727
  • Not too sure if I'll get the maps but that update sounds like pure DLC to me! XP-based ranking... dream come true.
  • Sounds pretty good. I'm looking forward to those new maps in particular.
  • I'm thinking Microsoft will let really popular games like Gears of War, Halo 3 and maybe COD if they stopped making one every year get up to 2000. Everything else will be held down by the 1250 limit.
  • I like that they are still supporting this game! I just hope that every game type works towards 100 (including horde). If they make it like halo where you have to earn ranks in specific game types I'm gonna punch something.
  • i'll buy the maps when they are cheaper, just put it in the original game already *sigh*
  • There are 6 achievements that don't require the new map pack, the post said that 6 achievements require the new map pack
  • i better getmy gears bk then !!!
  • SERIOUSLY, WHAT IS IT WITH THESE NEW GAMES BRINING OUT NEW DLC EVERY MONTH, FABLE 2 TOMB RAIDER, GEARS, FALLOUT, AND HALO 3. I MEAN WHAT THE HELL! JUST MAKE A NEW GAME FOR CHRIST SAKE. WHY ARE MICROSOFT ALLOWING THIS BULL!? EVERYTIME YOU COMPLETE A GAME " YOU ONLY COMPLETE IT FOR 2 MINS BEFORE NEW ACHIEVEMENTS COME OUT. I KNOW THE GAMES ARE GOOD BUT JESUS, NO NEED TO KEEP "TRYING" TO MAKE IT BETTER THAN IT IS!
  • Madser
  • Hating the fact that if you wanna get the full GS you have to play online and pay at least 1600 Points (Combustible & this one) .. Bitchesss that's it .. giving up on the achievs on this one .. except those 3 that do need need a new map pack .. PLZ Single Player DLC !!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Thank friggin' god man, new maps plus that exp thing! Those bots are gonna help so much too
  • I refuse to pay 8ooMSP, like someone else said, 400 would be reasonable. I don't need them that bad.
  • @ #82 That's cool man, to each his own. I can see why this game is so huge, why so many people love it. It really is a good game and, while I may say he's insanely arrogant, Cliffy B. is a good developer. I just can't stand the smug look on his face in every interview.... Like he just smelled his own fart and it was wonderful. Like I said, while this game is great in MANY ways, it's just not really my kinda game. The MP, for me... No. The SP I do really enjoy, but not that much. If they'd double the length, I'd be psyched.
  • Sorry for the double post... How about getting #136 off this site. Spamming those sites that require you to spend 10x what you would to get a "free" prize is a major "no no" in my book.
  • lmao for real #136....go HOME lolwat a losah...aniways back to u demon..u have a fabulous point on Cliffy With the whole fart WOnderful thing lol...kudos to that haha
  • Bloody Dam Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
  • this should greatly improve the mp experiance reducing quitters and region filter sounds good.... also glad 2 see they brought back fuel depot! courtyard i could do without :(
  • Yes! Gears 2's multiplayer might actually be worth playing again!!!
  • hmm should be free since we paid 800 for 3 lousy maps so until then screw u epic and Cliffy B fix the matchmaking and bugs first then will see
  • Hopefully level 100 wont be too hard or take too much work to get. I think they are gonna add 75 points with the single player dlc and then tie it off at 1500.
  • those bots are ganna be stupid all the do is camp i can already see now me in a shoygun battle and geting lancered down every time and i like the oldranking system i was a 5
  • @156 - The old "ranking system" wasnt an actual ranking system, it was a trueskill rank which shouldn't have been shown in the first place. For example, I have a rank 2 trueskill ranking, yet I always rape rank 3's and 4's, it was a flawed system. Anyway, hopefully this will fix Gears 2 MP, if not then EPIC can kiss my furry ass and my gears game will be straight on ebay.
  • Boy, I wonder how many games are gonna pass the 1250 mark... This game is bad enough, but now there's more achievements! Great... Luckily I haven't bought the first map pack, nor will I buy the second. Epic is most likely gonna do exactly the same thing they did for the first Gears. Eventually make them free. So I'll wait.
  • @140 - Caps lock is cruise control for cool. I'd rather they make addons/DLC for a game rather than pump out a new one a couple months down the line and charge us £40 for it. Updates keep the game fresh and allow new content to be played with, without shelling too much money. I'm very happy that this update is only a couple of weeks away.
  • HELL YEAH! FUEL DEPOT!
  • Without new achievements for multiplayer there is no resons for me to keep going online and playing the same maps and gametypes. This is a needed boost to keep the online fresh and players coming back for more. Smooth move Epic!
  • I JUST CANT KEEP THIS GAME 100%'D
  • wow i just traded in this game and now they fix all the stuff i hated, might just have to go pick it up especially since you can rank up more then 5 times.
  • FINALLY FUEL DEPOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • SWEET!! Cant Wait. XD
  • I've kind of given up on Epic at this point. The main issue was lag: why was more focus not given to this? Region preference will be added? Wait a minute: JoeGraf said on the forums that region preference already exists. "If it can't find anyone in your region, it goes to the next best thing" - funny that 9 other people never seem to be playing within my country, let alone all of North America. So what's actually going on with this? Fixing lag would have corrected SO many issues with the game. As for bots - yeah it sounds all well and good, but it's incredibly shortsighted. They take power weapons and don't use them (Mortar on Annex, anyone?). They don't understand different strategies for different game types (Guardian, anyone?). And stalemates? Omfg. I could go on. All they needed to
  • All they needed to do was bring back Player Matches. Then, with the new ranking system that is only affected by YOUR performance rather than that of your team, losing players in ranked matches wouldn't be such a big deal. Since this is the first time we might actually be able to play the game since we purchased it, here's a big "screw you" to Epic for charging 800MP for more maps that already existed before the game was released. I understand they have to charge in order to add new Achievements, but not that much. And another "screw you" for making the new ranking system Achievements REQUIRE the map pack for the higher levels. Seriously?
  • i just orgasmed over 9000 times - thias is why gears is the best nuff said
  • im 169!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • any news on price? well an official price
  • Good 7 more updates and fix all problems in gear 2
  • Lets hope the combustible map pack becomes free with the release of the new one. *cough Like halo does with every map pack cough* So we can all get the combustible one and atleast stand a chance of having 50%+ completion ratio on this game.
