I played a few matches last night (TDM) and I'm still only at 6. Is the Digger event the only one giving them out?


Alpha playlist was giving credit for each match and local match with guest login as well.

I was playing ranked TDM and saw a few people with the "I made this!" tag (He also had a ghostly retro lancer) and Epic logos as their icon/avatar. I even saw someone with the "Extremely Serious" tag (Extremely Serious 3.0 achievement), I'm guessing he either boosted or hacked it.

EDIT:Only got one Onyx medal, not two, but it was still random, the war supporter one. Here's to getting banned for something I didn't do.

For whatever reason my game is not glitching for the War Supporter medal like everyone else's seems to. Kind of a bummer, but I guess I'll get it eventually anyway.

I also agree with lordpus, I'm loving this digger event. So fun to use the boltok.

I really wish they would make an Alpha Guardian playlist, even if we only use some of the Gears 1-2 map remakes. I know some Gears 3 maps wouldnt work well. But i would play the shit out of it even if we only have 4-6 maps.

I played some CTL today and its just not happening. When i get to the leader i want to end them, not hold them for 30 seconds leaving me super vulnerable for anyone who comes by to free them. The game is just annoying, and is the reason why i never played submission in gears 2. Whats worse is how you can get downed, freed, then downed instantly without even having a shot to run.

I tried to play some Wingman today and it was garbage because everyone uses sawed off. You know how stupid the game looks when shitty players use a sawed off and they both miss each other and they sit there reloading. Then their was 1 vs 2 left and the 1 guy just kept running in circles around the map and these goons couldnt get him. He was literally running around the map with a smoke in his hand and they took like 5 minutes to catch him.

Finally got my female onyx medal, now i can be a man for once. LOL. That brings me up to 13/65 onyx medals. Im in love with playing as the kantus, i didnt think he was that cool, but he is fun to play as. As for COG, i use Big Rig Dizzy.

If they tweak the shotgun and the spawns in Alpha I could see myself playing this game for a really long time. Everything I hate about Gears 3 is just about eliminated. 4v4 and default load out give this enough of a Gears 1 feel to make me very very happy. It's pretty lame that only one mode in the game is any good, but it feels enough like 1 that I can deal with it.

This Digger event is pretty ass. I wish it were pistols instead to be honest. On P2P the host team eats them for free and on server connections it only proves how much of a crutch the Sawed-off Shotgun is for a large majority of the casual community. They can't even go neutral without it. Thank God for Alpha. It's pretty damn telling when I end a game 24 - 8 and every member of the opposing team is negative, but we still lose because the rest of my team manages to double their deaths somehow.

 

Stop trying to Scooby-Doo this. We're not going to solve this mystery for you.

The digger event is a lot of fun, esp on Sandbar. Lol I don't know how many I took out blind firing through the walls into the fortress. It's also quite fun trying to snip people with the pistol. Ahh halo moments flooding back lol.

I didn't check the link, but I bet it refers to the glitch where every game counted toward the War Supporter medal 1 day before release.

I wonder if that'll be less of an issue when Modern Warfare 3 comes out? I assume if a lot of gamers go to playing that, as expected, it'll allow for more people to get into server games.

they need to fix the cover system


an enemy and I were both on the same cover, he blind fires his shotgun and kills me.


in another game this guy was in cover. me and my friend were standing on the other side. the guy starts shooting my friend, while he does this I unload like 10 gnasher shots into the guy standing 2 feet away. and kept getting nothing.

oddly enough I got more war supporter ticks off the medal for playing again last night...not sure as to what triggered it but I'm not complaining. so im guessing it's still not 100% fixed.

O_O

You know i always get confused with gears setup. Like when you are picking what gametype and stuff you press A to advance. But in the map/character select screen you press start to advance. I always end up trying to press start when im setting up a private match, then it brings up the options menu. LOL Not sure why they did that.

Today i just randomly thought about how they show a COG character on your stats screen. Why dont i have the option to see a locust character? LOL. Not really a big deal just thought how its always a COG.

I made it to level 99 tonight. Tomorrow should be the day i get my wings, hopefully. Its like 93,000 points to get from 99 to 100.

Today i was playing and someone was coming at me with a chainsaw and i blew him away with my gnasher and then i was chainsawed by the same guy.

Another match i downed someone with a melee and then was blown away by his gnasher.

Seriously i never liked this double kill BS since they added it to gears 2. -_-

Im only 11,371 xp away from getting my wings.... im going off to do that now. ^_^

I got my wings today, and the gold omen skins are pretty cool. They look darker black than the default color, which i like. Now i kind of want to unlock an onyx skin to see how that looks. But the gold omen look nice and match well with the onyx guard.

If you didnt see, the events calendar changed, there is a "One shot, one kill" event coming. I forget the date, but sounds interesting. If one shot kills someone instantly, i wonder what gun they will make us use, and if it will be changed in anyway.

I also unlocked the command center achievement. Level 4 was pretty fast to get to. Im not sure how you unlock the extra onxy guard though. I was playing before and seen someone using it, but im already maxed out so.....idk.

finally beat horde solo last night (casual w/infinite ammo). I'm glad I beat wave 50 w/some ppl another time because the last wave they trhew at me at corpsers and unfairapede spawning in my base. I gave up after 3 tries...but I unlocked the achievement and medal wave 49.

I'll put CAGears3DLC on my list if ppl need extra gunz to shoot at the bad mens.

@popular penguin - sweet deal on the silverback, thanks for the headsup.
