Yeah game is way way better now. Still need DBNO to feel more like Gears, but getting rid of the Stims in MP is awesome!!! All those stim noobs now will learn to play legit.

I'm sorry I missed any gaming session last night. Unexpected events popped up and I couldn't get away until late. I have things I have to take care of this morning and early afternoon, but I'm hoping :pray: that I'd get into any gaming session late afternoon and evening.

Yeah the DBNO is still needed but most changes seem postive.
I guess Gears 3 will always be with me with Horde since It's never going to go in Judgement.

I probably won't be able to play tonight. But I will be on tomorrow.

5 Coles tomorrow night?

Hey snakemaster2389! I'm not really that into the MP stuff other than Survival and Overrun, and I'd probably hurt our TDM & other MP score more than help. As for the co-op campaign stuff, I don't really care for it as I never did it for any of the earlier Gears games. So, sorry.
I'm sure there are others here who'd join you but a lot of people are moving back to playing the earlier Gears. Gears:J Survival/Overrun is fun but I miss Horde and may go back to Gears 2 or 3 for that.

Is anyone else having problems with the prizeboxes?

I've beaten a few Survival maps and leveled up a few times and it lists the prizebox but nothing shows up. This has happened 4 or 5 times already.

I know with the next Title Update they're setting it to award prizes instead of XP first, so maybe they set it up to not award prize boxes anymore? That way people don't redeem them too soon and not get skins. And sometimes it just shows progress towards the next one, and not actually award an unlock.

I unlocked a few this week and didn't have an issue redeeming them. If it seems consistent, you might want to ask on the Gears site about it. Maybe their server side updates introduced some issues.

So the new reapers are out, and like 3 are the same as last week. LOL. Nice way to pass it around epic, im sure there are tons of people who would love to be the reaper, but give it to the guy who had it last week. WOw, one guy has been the reaper for 3 weeks in a row, seriously... why arent they picking someone else?

I do have to give props to Mad Dog Malcs, he is again the reaper for the UK, and he helped me get the reaper medal. He gave me an invite when i messaged him through xbox 360, and he didnt give me the medal, i had to earn it. So if you want a chance give him a message and maybe he will invite you too. Glad to see he is the reaper again.

I actually played with a different reaper (not mad dog), and he played like a bitch just camping back around his bros (it was TDM) like he was scared to get killed. Dude if i was the reaper i would be going rambo on all these kids. Not sitting back in defense mode hiding behind regular players.

Oh well. Ive stopped playing this game anyway, playing sleeping dogs at the moment. Ill hop on if anyone wants to get the car 13 or cole/survival achievements. But i probably wont be back until new DLC is out.

I was lucky enough to get into a lobby from the Gears Forums and we made it through All Aboard in out first try. We were using the same strategy we tried on here, but at the 2nd E-hole we had 3 guys left, 1 on the Troika, and one guy designated to help in the arcade but also be able to move to help me on the right side if I needed it.

We had less than 50% on the Generator, so it wasn't easy, but that strategy worked out. If people want to try that this week I'm still able to help with it.

We also worked on getting Surprise, and even helped a few random people get it as well. Check on their forums for people hosting lobbies to get it, since when I got it multiple times on Epic's servers it didn't unlock the achievement. You need a hosted server, which you get from lagging out the search by downloading, or more likely by uploading (like a video to youtube), causing the game to take too long to find a match and put you in a privately hosted server. I takes a while, but once you get that it's pretty decent.

Good Job! How long did you guys last on the 1st hole? Any strategies there?

We were able to hold the first hole until Wave 6 or 7. I forget which Wave we lost it on, but we went beyond Wave 5, which was key.

I should be on if you want to try to get it this Friday. I'll ask if there's another 5 from here, but I'm not sure if people are still interested in this game.

Some matches in this is rather laggy and some isn't to bad. I haven't bought the vip or maps or anything. I was just playing the standard playlist.

I haven't been playing it a lot either. Either a lot of people quit playing the game already or there is more in the vip section than I would assume.

You guys need to figure out time and who will host it. Good luck.

It tends to get a little busier on the weekends, but the game is divided like you said. People have been asking for a while to eliminate the separation between Regular and VIP playlists to keep numbers higher. Hopefully Epic can do that with a future Title Update (though it's highly unlikely, since they said it would take a lot of work to do that).

awww...we'll miss you buddy and your wisdom.

I guess, I'll be host if no one has any objections or had any lag last time.

I'll send a friendrequest to The 7th Number and we'll meet up at 8pm Est tomorrow night.
Then we'll figure out what to do from there, either go to work on achieves or "All Aboard".

Speaking of "All Aboard" if you guys had any requests on which side, in which hole, you were more comfortable with, or if you wanted to be the floater between sides, or if you wanted to man the troikas just post it.
Like, most of the time I've worked on the left side on the 1st hole, and the arcade on the 2nd, and again left side at the Generator.

I'll have to be offline by 11-12p though, so hopefully Ebbtide can be available to join anyone else who wanted to keep working on stuff.

The missing Overrun map from Maxim "Dreadnought" will be free on May 15 for a limited time. Not sure why its limited, i thought both maps would be free forever. You have to download the Maxim app to see a fly through on your xbox 360 LOL, no thanks.
