So....

- Made it to gold Multiplier, only about 40 left to go. Its been pretty easy. Actually on the last barge i just wait until we crash into each other, then get out from cover and shoot it down. Seems to work pretty good, even on insane. The hardest part on insane is the 2nd to last barge, since it takes 5 hits to take a barge down. Only 4 on hardcore.

- Need 302 waves more to onyx the horde medal. Sometimes i just do the first 10 then quit, find a new match. Its quicker than trying to win higher waves, plus the other players can do most of the work for me LOL. Today two people were playing together, after each round he would give the other guy his cash. They ended up buying the silverback, then i upgraded it right after and it kicked him out and i took it. LOL i know dick move but it was funny. They both tried to shoot it, then left. Then i played another horde game and upgraded the silverback again and let them keep it, only they never even used the rockets. -_-

- I made it to level 69 today. Got 2 onyx medals today for arcade scoring, 20,000 xp a piece. Not bad! :D

I haven't moved up a lvl in about 3 days now. stuck on 86 (first run)
But It's ok I hope to get some time in this weekend and get some pistol head shot kills in!


from what i hear insane horde is great XP, if you're up for that i'm always down. I still need hundreds of thousands to invest in the SB as well as a sprinkling of decoy, sentry, and CC.

maybe get gnashty will yield some good XP if you stay for 10+ rounds of it.

heard that EPIC removed the stopping power of the Hammerburst and Retro-Lancer. we get the thrashball Drone till the end of the super bowl. so 10 days.

I wonder if the thrashball Drone will be DLC bonus down the road...I'm wondering if the stat on the Retro-Lancer being the most used wpn in Gears 3 is partially due to all the Drones in Beast Mode that gets used. Are they going to put Anya and Queen Myrrah in a cheerleading outfit as well?

that's creepy...

I do all my force multiplier stuff on 3/1 (the fort defense), takes about 3 minutes if you reload the last checkpoint right after the scorecard goes down. It's sometimes tough to get all the way up to 10 again but you just have to make sure that you kill almost everything and your squad doesn't take out the grinders.

I would love to see some "just for fun" skins-- fancy dresses for the girls, beach outfits for the guys, Farmer Dom, Grayson and Trishka from Bulletstorm, stuff like that. It seems like Epic only wants to have fun with the weapon skins and keep the characters in-universe for the most part though.

I wouldnt mind seeing Queen Myrrah in a cheerleading outfit :D

They already toned down her groans when you lean against a wall and move up and down, in the beta she sounded like she was having sex. LOL

No but seriously.... its cool they are unlocking thrashball drone, even if it is pretty stupid in the gears of war universe. Whats the back story on the guy? Did the COG capture drones and dress them up in thrashball outfits to practice against? lol

I'm down for it sunday afternoon what time? EST?, don't know how many acts I can do 4 player in the afternoon...my game time tends to be later in the evening. I need the earlier chapter for 4 player coop and the last chapter in Act 4 and Act 5.

So they added the Thrasball Drone to the roster...would have made more sense on superbowl weekend, but I hope its a permanent entry.

MF Fuck you Epic. Got reset today when I was playing beast and it locked up. I was able to recover some progress but everything since I prestiged is gone. I had maxed out all my horde fortification including level 5 silverback and last night got oynx big money. I also lost 700 matches and all that progress.

damn that sucks. last night my horde game froze in the middle of playing. usually it would freeze when i was loading into a match. But my stuff was safe. Think ill go make a new backup today.

Right now im getting the founder ribbons for horde. Im using 2 controllers, on Bulletmarsh. Buy the post with player 1, then go into the nearest kryll area and have 2nd player shoot the engine to kill us both via kryll, then restart from beginning. Repeat. Takes about 50-60 seconds per ribbon, but it beats backing out and loading up a horde game over and over.

Quicker on checkout. Friendly fire on. Tower at spawn, quick kill controller 2 and roadie run to grenade spawn by tv store. Grab the grenades, toss them on the ground and die. Average of 22-25 seconds per round.

I actually tried that but i didnt always spawn by a tower. not sure if it counts if you kill them first, and then buy the tower. But i also had to wait for nades to respawn sometimes. I just went back to Bulletmarsh. It was easier for me, and the 2nd time i turned friendly fire on, killed myself with either incendiaries or boom sometimes when i didnt want to wait for the kryll.

I made it to 30 onyx medals. woooo. I have 200 waves of horde to finish to onyx that, and about 900,000 cash to earn in horde to onyx that. Wouldnt mind playing with some people on insane so i can earn better money. If anyone is up for it send me a request when im on.

So i was playing horde tonight. I got the silverback up with rockets and was doing work. Then some jackass jumps in it right when i jumped out to repair it. So i was standing in front of the silverback blocking his shots, and i get downed. So he jumps out and picks me up and i jump back into the silverback. HA! But it didnt end there. A few waves later i jump out to repair thinking im in the clear because Sam is not near me to jump in. Then i jump out to make repairs and dude jumps in again. I wasnt aware there were two Sams playing. But i did the same routine of standing in front of him, eventually the silverback was going to blow, i run to avoid being killed, BOOM.... dude who stole my silverback is downed. So i go over to him and hump him for about a minute as he crawls for help. He just about died before someone else revived him. After that i just left.

i'm not sure if ppl without the DLC can jack your Command Center and use it, but there's always some dood who runs over and looks like they want to press the button just as the wave starts...so I just hold down RB when the close starts to run down and rebuild the CC as it's about to hit 0:01 and no one is near enough to rush in and jack it.

next time just have you grenade swinging when you're doing the dance of death, unless your hump dance is more visually annoying of course.

So guys..

I have played and enjoyed all three Gears in the campaign (the first one several times) in solo and coop. I have never really played the MP though, and not much of any shooters online before.

I am considering giving Gears 3 a shot though to see if I can get into it. I don't know dick about the modes, what they do and what type of player to be. I assume I will learn all of that as I play, but in the meantime, can anyone recommend me a good place to start? Does the game match up players by skill or experience, so I won't be fed to experienced vets to be slaughtered?

Or am I so late in joining that I won't really encounter other noobs and likely just be better suited staying on the sidelines? I don't mind taking a whipping, but I want to have fun too. I value my time and have plenty of games to play, so if it's not a good fit at this point, I don't mind moving on.

Anyone with any thoughts, it would be appreciated.
