  • b3nT_JCrasto16 Justin Crasto Jr. (@b3nT_JCrasto16) reported

    @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears @OctusTC Can't believe people are still playing Ranked. I left this a long time ago. And I am going back until TC fixes this game. The Game is broken and ridiculous.

  • lonzo_jay Jay Lonzo (@lonzo_jay) reported

    @GearsofWar I wish you would fix some things in gears 5 like the long medal grinds the lancer damage and more

  • ThotlandSpencor Spencor Thotland (@ThotlandSpencor) reported

    @CoalitionGears Haven’t had this issue. However I was banned for 36 hours when I was having connection issues. Also I remember seeing patch notes about pc players being stuck on icebound map on menu. Still stuck

  • AnthDOnofriooo Antonino D'Onof 🇨🇦🇮🇹 (@AnthDOnofriooo) reported

    @GearsofWar Last night I was suspended twice from matchmaking (30min) (50min). I backed out of a lobby because the person in my party didn't make it to the game. HOW ABOUT YOU FIX YOUR SHIT MENU SYSTEM AND STOP SUSPENDING PEOPLE FOR RESPONDING TO YOUR SHIT MENU SYSTEM. @Xbox

  • xxjayepiecexx Jaye Lyons (@xxjayepiecexx) reported

    @CoalitionGears @OctusTC just a reminder that most of the community hates the new ranked system and it's faulty. See other tweets for proof but it's happened to me too. No matter how you play you always lose points. Please fix.

  • BigIslandBRADDA Braddah K (@BigIslandBRADDA) reported

    @CoalitionGears I just played the terminator horde with a guy who was AFK for 19/20 waves. The fact that your game allows these kinds of people to skate by for a free ride while others do the work, rather than boot them out after 2 minutes of inactivity, is absolutely horseshit. Fix this!

  • 420Ugk Tristyn/UGK Ur Boy 420 (@420Ugk) reported

    @CoalitionGears banned again due to lagging out the 1st time I let go but I've been a loyal player since gow1 I'm master rank I've never quit a match and I never would I simply lagged out due to bad internet plz fix my acc asap my gamertag is FAoSUrB0y420

  • IntenseCasper Intense CaspeR (@IntenseCasper) reported

    @CoalitionGears By the looks of it, no hope for this game. We "its fixed" yet more problems. I enjoy playing the game because it doesnt bother me much but dam every SINGLE person is complaining. Good luck on a million "patches"

  • IPhantomfeitan Roxaf (@IPhantomfeitan) reported

    @kidsmoove @CoalitionGears @GearsViking They better fix their game before suspending people.. shameful, it almost feels like they're doing us a favor letting us play Ranked matches, not the truth that they eat from the money we spent buying their glitched game

  • mardoforever TN_ Marzz (@mardoforever) reported

    @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar Im in act 2 chapter 4 and when i press start game it does nothing how can i fix it

  • Ryan36659128 Ryan Tillman (@Ryan36659128) reported

    @Lolreg2 @CoalitionGears Never happens in any other apps or games. So they can still adjust the audio files so that the audio doesn't lag as frequently.

  • CarpusFenix Carpus (@CarpusFenix) reported

    @JldEdits @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears @OctusTC Nicely played man I believe from what I have read that that glitch is just visual. It's giving you correct reward and rank but not displaying the update. They say they're working on it so time should sort it. Shame games have such issues these days but sadly software isn't simple

  • ChrisSchuermann Chris Schür♏ann🐍 (@ChrisSchuermann) reported

    @FehzdIRL @kidsmoove @CoalitionGears @GearsViking dude you need to quit a lot of times to even get a ban... you can always re join in the game if it was a technical error

  • ElvisIsOnline vl Realistic lv (@ElvisIsOnline) reported

    @Paullea15 @AmericanPsychom @GearsofWar I don’t think the game is the problem. This toxic community that thinks it’s entitled to everything is the problem. I’ll play the game and still enjoy it, if you all think there’s a problem then it’s on you.

  • polyneutron Viktor Vorsin (@polyneutron) reported

    1/3 Damn it @GearsofWar still is a goddamn mess of a code, I almost certainly get a 'GW502' error every single day (at least once a day) after a match be it either PvP, PvE, Escape or even Horde.

  • ThizzRudy Rudy Avalos (@ThizzRudy) reported

    @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears Please fix your ranking system. How do you get negative points when you a. Won the match and B. Had a positive K/D that makes no sense!!

  • RF_Rickk Riccardo Frazzetto (@RF_Rickk) reported

    @arne_matthew @CoalitionGears yes, they have a big problem to solve. otherwise the urge to play a game versus!

  • RF_Rickk Riccardo Frazzetto (@RF_Rickk) reported

    @arne_matthew @CoalitionGears yes, they have a big problem to solve. otherwise the urge to play a game passes!

  • yt_ocho Garrett Conner (@yt_ocho) reported

    @GearsofWar Fix the game

  • CCDEADBLUFF6 Kenny (@CCDEADBLUFF6) reported

  • Luis_Antonio_GR luis antonio (@Luis_Antonio_GR) reported

    @CoalitionGears i’ve got a problem With my internet and now i can’t play cause i’ve been suspended for a day and 6 hours please help!!!! !!!

  • DavidAllenBart1 David Allen Barton (@DavidAllenBart1) reported

    @CoalitionGears Hey, how about fix the issue that we have to grind for 10 hours to get a "cog soldier" oh wait my bad I'll just drop 5 dollars on it...i dont wanna play escape or horde since they suck so let me unlock it some other way. This is INSANE.

  • ___Poetic__ Bryce (@___Poetic__) reported

    Almost forgot to tweet it today. @CoalitionGears fix ranked.

  • hiatus23 Dtech (@hiatus23) reported

  • 91toinfinity Ronaldo 🇪🇨 (@91toinfinity) reported

    @Microsoft can I get a refund of this #Gears5 game I purchased. The game is not complete, several issues on the backend. @CoalitionGears sorry fam, I’m heartbroken.

  • TheHarsch1 Tha R (@TheHarsch1) reported

    @GearsHate @CyGnUsKilLerZ @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears Content (it is broken once a week) I liked Gears of War 4. I liked the boxes way more than this new terr' sys (just no doops) & everything. Only cons, the gnash seemed inconsistent & the rank system. I wish Gears5 started more like Gears of War 4 ended as far as content & feel

  • fuegovsflame1 KURUPT (@fuegovsflame1) reported

    @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears @OctusTC Yeah I hope they fix it cuz not everybody could play everyday...

  • birdiebebuggin Jonathan Rahim (@birdiebebuggin) reported

    @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar I think you guys know, if y'all don't fix this game, more than half of your fan base will be spending their time and money elsewhere. Like COD and Halo. You're insulting your fans with BS live streams about what you're fixing. Fix the hit box and the ranking system NOW

  • cbentley8088 Chase Bentley (@cbentley8088) reported

    @CoalitionGears Still not working I’m doing so good tonight I’m working my back to silver 1

  • Victor14477 Victor (@Victor14477) reported

    this problem will be solved @GearsViking @GearsLATAM @CoalitionGears @danasissons @nodezero

  • matthewtminer Matthewtminer (@matthewtminer) reported

    @CoalitionGears Thanks for the extended double stars but still getting error code after match occasionally.

  • THATsELMO GoofTr👀p (@THATsELMO) reported

    This is a real problem @GearsofWar fix this shit

  • JuradoMialma Gabriel Jurado Mialma (@JuradoMialma) reported

    @CoalitionGears I was silver 2, 89%. Lost three times, won twice, and ended up at 99%. I lost one time again and I drastically went down to Silver 2 50-59%, I can't remember but it was between there. Please fix the ranking system.

  • Leonkiller2569 J (@Leonkiller2569) reported

    @CoalitionGears Here we go again matches resultes not working and stars progression not working

  • lcc96 LCC (@lcc96) reported

    @kidsmoove @CoalitionGears @GearsViking I loved Gears 5 (my goty personal) but I think the game needs a little more time, maybe taking it out in November would have been better ... online problems occur in any multiplayer so haters shouldn't grab that to throw shit

  • garcia_2810 Victor (@garcia_2810) reported

    @GearsofWar yo fix your broken ass game

  • Paullea15 Paul lea (@Paullea15) reported

    @CoalitionGears Working as intended 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂🤣🤣😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 fix the God dam severs

  • jshmitty94 Uncle Benis (@jshmitty94) reported

    @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears @OctusTC They only problem I see is that you are still playing that idiotic mess

  • JediGoW Justin 🇨🇦 (@JediGoW) reported

    @_Avexys @nodezero @danasissons @OctusTC @CoalitionGears I've had the same problem happen to me a couple times as well during scrims

  • SpectreXr1 SpectreXr1 (@SpectreXr1) reported

    @AMANOFGOD95 @kidsmoove @CoalitionGears @GearsViking Funny gears 4 didn't have these problems . But when they put a game on steam too they have all these bugs .

  • Im_Egotistical Darren Miller (@Im_Egotistical) reported

    @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears @OctusTC I think it’s pretty obvious that it’s a problem. There’s no way it’s intentional. You might lose points based on score per minute, but there’s no way it should be even close to that much of a swing.

  • monuisabhi Anime Obituaries (@monuisabhi) reported

    @CoalitionGears Thank You for developing #Gears5 i enjoyed this game for a few hours until i came to know its broken as hell, im leaving it never gonna play again. Series should've ended with 4 but with this it has left a bad taste in my mouth. #GearsOfWar

  • RF_Rickk Riccardo Frazzetto (@RF_Rickk) reported

    @CoalitionGears Fix the ranking sistem of KOT!! It’s shameful!!

  • iMxMikey Michael (@iMxMikey) reported

    @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar Man y’all just can’t do ish to fix this game, every day it’s a new bug or glitch. It’s disappointing to see the direction this series is going, won’t be here for Operation 2 that’s for damn sure.

  • iibrandon92 iiBrandon Blues (@iibrandon92) reported

    @CoalitionGears Now fix the tier system or a better fix just remove the shit, how am I suppose to earn better tier rewards if it doesn’t let me rank up

  • GloriousKev ⌨🎧 😈😈Devilish Kev😈😈 🖥🖱 (@GloriousKev) reported

    @kidsmoove @CoalitionGears @GearsViking This happened to me often in Gears 4 as well. The game would crash and I would get suspended. I quit Gears 4 after a 2 hour ban for my PC crashing randomly. Gears 4 is the only game that crashes on my PC regularly.

  • FehzdIRL Fehzd (@FehzdIRL) reported

    @kidsmoove @CoalitionGears @GearsViking I’m seeing a lot of cases of this - ppl wrongfully getting suspended for technical errors

  • KyleLuther17 Kyle Maxson (@KyleLuther17) reported

    @CoalitionGears Not working right still. Went down 900 points two matches in a row in ranked tdm. All the progress I worked so hard for gone. Thanks...

    @kidsmoove @CoalitionGears @GearsViking Wow, imagine actually spending full price for this game and to have issue after issue. It's a good game, but damn, get y'all shit together.

  • TTvFReSHKiiD FReSHKiiD (@TTvFReSHKiiD) reported

    @GearsofWar Please Fix Your Rank System ! Made A HUGE Come back in KOH and got -42 Points!!! With 72 Kills!

  • __flvco__ John Anthony (@__flvco__) reported

    @CoalitionGears Actually fix the bullet magnetism and the shotgun damage output. Theres no reason that i should be getting 97-99% damage in one hit still. Actually address the inconsistencies.

  • REDY0TA R E D yota (@REDY0TA) reported

    @CogCouple @CrimsonGOW @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears No problem it's the small things that counts I can't edit like that yet youtubing it now 🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃

  • Paullea15 Paul lea (@Paullea15) reported

    @CogCouple @CrimsonGOW @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears We don't need more shit. We need the game to be fixed ranked is a joke. Connecting to the US when 80% of the lobby is EU is a mess. God dam fix your shit game

  • WisdomGirlPower Jenna (@WisdomGirlPower) reported

    @CoalitionGears Mouse sensitivity constantly resets back to default setting whenever I enter or exit the location in Co-OP Campaign in Gears 5 (PC/Steam). Please fix it!

  • Dan157D Dan Evans (@Dan157D) reported

    @GearsofWar @EpicGames @CoalitionGears since entering act 3 in the sand area the game does nothing but lag. Constantly removing me from the game.. it's been fine up to now but this is just unplayable. #Gears5 fix it please

  • Decadence_3 Decadence (@Decadence_3) reported

    @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears @OctusTC Have they fixed the problem with people quitting and affecting skill points. This seems to have gotten worse. The ranking was working as intended at the beginning. Also, your own teammates affect your ranking system.
