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.
I can tell a big difference in myself. I use to be way better when I stuck with Gears 2 and played it. Now sometimes I do fairly well and sometimes I just flat out suck against the higher ranks.
You should give it a try you might enjoy the mp. I doubt there is many new people. Usually when I play the ranks are insane of the people I'm going against. You still might have fun or end up being better than you think you are.
