    @Texassmufan @therealTacCom @Crxman1972 @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons @GearsofWar Also should backfill in every mode but comp. If someone quits in comp everyone should be returned to lobby to find replacement player. So many things in GOW4 matchmaking are just terribly wrong. A match should not continue after a quit or disconnect.

    @therealTacCom @Crxman1972 @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons @GearsofWar You literally lag out and get kicked because your internet dropped and you loose 10 games worth of XP in penalties

    @therealTacCom @Crxman1972 @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons @GearsofWar And they removed the quit button like that would fix anything 😂😂😂

    @Texassmufan @Crxman1972 @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons @GearsofWar Refill lobbies fix everything. Even ranked because let’s be real ranked ain’t nothing but a fancy playlist. The only games that are serious are at tournaments and private matches.

    TacCom (@therealTacCom) reported

    @Texassmufan @Crxman1972 @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons @GearsofWar And if the game wasn’t complete trash that would help a lot. No one cares enough. I would quit games all day if I still played. Half the lobbies were s total unplayable lag fest.

    Muffin (@Texassmufan) reported

    @therealTacCom @Crxman1972 @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons @GearsofWar The rage quit problem could all be fixed if it didn’t take 10 years to load a match and the quitter could be instantly replace kind of like what happened on older call of duty’s

    @GearsofWar @NVIDIAGeForce @Microsoft Is there ever going to be another attempt to fix the big issues with Gears of war 4 on PC. I'm getting tired of having to dial back drivers every time I want to play the game I spent a $100 on for a few hours.

    @danasissons @OctusTC @CoalitionGears Its okay. No problem, i’ll wait.

    @CoalitionGears Please fix Gears of War 4 Markza execution glitch. Blood should comes out of the neck, not the left knee.

    @GearsofWar Disappointing they pick a weekday to do an XP boost, I really hoped they'd do the XP boosts on the weekends, so then all timezones can enjoy, eg. US/Mexico, UK/Europe, and Australasia. Login rewards could then be during weekdays, since just logging into the website counts.

  • Vile_Solutions
    Solutions (@Vile_Solutions) reported

    @The_LastArchive @CoalitionGears The net code is the biggest issue with the game. fix that and you fix 90% of the gun play issues, then you just need to actually balance weapons

  • The_LastArchive
    Alex (@The_LastArchive) reported

    @Vile_Solutions @CoalitionGears Exactly, and it's not my fault that I have 200ms in the first place. I would much prefer to play on more localized servers but there isn't much of a playerbase here. You can't blame me for lagging if there's nothing I can do about it.

  • Vile_Solutions
    Solutions (@Vile_Solutions) reported

    @The_LastArchive @CoalitionGears If they updated their netcode from a 30hz one to a 60hz compatible net code they would fix the problem. Battlefield 4 had the same problem but when they fixed the net code it was perfect.

  • The_LastArchive
    Alex (@The_LastArchive) reported

    @Vile_Solutions @CoalitionGears Another big problem is high ping players. Apparently if you have 200ms then you will ALWAYS have the advantage and coming from someone who plays on 180-240ms every day, this simply is not the case. I don't sponge anymore than any other player.

  • Vile_Solutions
    Solutions (@Vile_Solutions) reported

    @The_LastArchive @CoalitionGears Sponging argument is dumb. There are clearly times in the game where you put 6-7 good shots into people and they just 1-2 hit you. The gun balance is just one of many problems in the game. But I don't get the argument that you missed when you didn't. Just admit the real issue.

  • The_LastArchive
    Alex (@The_LastArchive) reported

    @Vile_Solutions @CoalitionGears The only reason why I prefer GoW4 over GoW3 is pure connection. Although I still lag and always have the disadvantage in GoW4, it's far less than what I experienced in Gears 3. If they remade GoW3 with better hitboxes, no Retro/HB/Sawed-off and servers. I will never get off of it

  • The_LastArchive
    Alex (@The_LastArchive) reported

    @Vile_Solutions @CoalitionGears The biggest problem with TC is they can’t admit when they’re wrong. It’s always the community’s fault and then the dumbasses will obviously believe them.

  • The_LastArchive
    Alex (@The_LastArchive) reported

    Message everyone playing @GearsofWar If you have any form of an opinion, stay off the Gears forums, there is a serious problem of "Hive mind mentality" there and if you say anything that they do not like, you will be shut down regardless whether it's right or wrong.

  • BBQDanTheMan
    BBQ DanTheMan (@BBQDanTheMan) reported

    @ProfaneArt @GearsofWar @Robin_A_Downes Reinstalling does nothing. Reason you aren't crashing anymore is because they patched out some crashing issues and you were probably one of the lucky ones.

  • OctusTC
    TC Octus (@OctusTC) reported

    @Jamesmullin15 @CoalitionGears It's an Update. The fix needs to go in, it needs to be tested, it needs to be sent to Microsoft for certification, it needs to be staged and tested and then it needs to be approved for rollout. Monday is literally the earliest possible date in that process.

  • Jamesmullin15
    James mullin (@Jamesmullin15) reported

    @CoalitionGears Monday no wonder there’s no one playing this game anymore why can’t you ever get it right epic never had these issues

    @MovieMiguel @CoalitionGears @GearsViking @OctusTC I'm still 30/30 cog tags on gears 1 with no achievement, that was 9 years ago. Rarely fix anything these days.

    @CoalitionGears hi guys, there's a glitch I've discovered, my Syndrome Skins have disappeared. The weapons that have them equipped still have the skin, but the others which I have changed the skin, I can't find the Syndrome Skin for them. Please help!

    TheGearsProdigy (@TheGearsProdigy) reported

    @cryptickhan @CoalitionGears @EssKillerWolf @danasissons @nodezero @GearsofWar Yeah it's sad to see the 'no Weapon glitch' still being ignored.

    Hey this problem have been happening more recently then ever. Whenever I play a joiniable game private or social my game will lag but it’s a weird lag the game itself freezes with the tv and then continues all within playing the match @OctusTC @CoalitionGears @nodezero

    @TheGearsProdigy @CoalitionGears @EssKillerWolf @danasissons @nodezero @GearsofWar Right, Like please fix all the glitches too. Alot of them have been active since launch. I hate the no weapon glitch.

  • Decadence_3
    Decadence (@Decadence_3) reported

    @Dutchonidas @atom_heart_eric @GearsofWar Yeah, i understand all that and at that point in becomes about response and lag when people were trading like crazy after one of TC's updates. I have the same experience as you when I have such a high ping. My point about the bots was to take ping out of it.

  • Decadence_3
    Decadence (@Decadence_3) reported

    @Dutchonidas @atom_heart_eric @GearsofWar Yes, that is a nice video I saw back when it came out - it was popular in the forums. I'm just saying that it can be a way for one to show the difference between bots vs online experience. Like you say, bots don't lag - That's my point, it would serve as a closed environment.

  • Dutchonidas
    Dutchy (@Dutchonidas) reported

    @Decadence_3 @atom_heart_eric @GearsofWar Bots don't lag, at all. So that's already a terrible example. YouTube "battlenonsense gow4."

  • Dutchonidas
    Dutchy (@Dutchonidas) reported

    @Decadence_3 @atom_heart_eric @GearsofWar Bro, just stop. Lol Pb or not, lag or not, shits the same. Kratoz knows this, but I don't think you're as aware.

  • Dutchonidas
    Dutchy (@Dutchonidas) reported

    @Decadence_3 @atom_heart_eric @GearsofWar Riiiight.. I'm not even going to start the argument. Can't fix blind people.

  • Decadence_3
    Decadence (@Decadence_3) reported

    @Dutchonidas @atom_heart_eric @GearsofWar That stuff happens to me as well when I play out of region/high ping, but my point was more about ranges in regard to the percentage feedback. In your video I do see a lot of lag and I was able to see that your ping was well over yeah there are factors and variables.

    @IgodzXg3ars @nodezero @CoalitionGears Based on the network performance on your account, it looks like this is an issue with the quality of your internet connection - at least today. Today, your network is producing big delays in completing calls to our services - way longer than it should be.
