Got my 20th social ribbon. 10 more to go. why do i care? Im not even trying to get the other achievements. -_-

 

Man this games lobby is so dead. The only beautiful thing i see about the low population of each lobby is that execution had the most players in it. Good to see fans are showing epic what we really want!

I see a few members from here have started this game.  If anybody needs help with the achievements that require teams or numbers (especially the DLC ones), I'd be willing to help. Be warned that I only have 5 more events before I'm done with the game, though, so it'd be better to do sooner than later.

If you need extra players, I can help also.  But, I'm also in it for the event ribbons and mainly back to playing Horde on GOW3.

According to a tweet announcing Reapers, there will be 2x XP this week starting now(?)

 

I may actually play some this week once I get my Forza league duties done.

New special event ribbon today, but the event is still BTTE.  I think this is now the third ribbon for this same game type.

It's just that simple.

4th ribbon.  It's been the same Event for 3 weeks now.  Brothers to the End was an Event earlier in the cycle too, and they never fixed the major issue that people complained about and that they said they'd work on...  50 kills to win, or match expiring after 12 or 15 minutes.  The maps are way too big and the teams are far too small, and it still has the issue of one team getting an extra player on occasion.

Beyond done.  Once the last DLC came out, Epic has stopped talking to the Gears of War community.  I can't recall the last time the responded to posts on their forums or announced...well...anything.  The lack of even updating new events when the game isn't even 6 full months old yet, and hasn't even actually hit 30 distinct events, is pathetic.

 

If there's double XP, I guess VIPs get 4x in their playlists?  I wonder if this affects Survivals XP.

Ebbtide - I agree.  It's a chore to play BTTE.  The matches always go to the 20 minute time limit.  The maps are way too big for only four players.  They should have reduced the kills-to-win to 20 or 25.  Hopefully the change events this weekend.

 

I'd be shocked if there was any more DLC incoming for this game.  There's not enough people playing it (and potentially paying for it) to justify the development time.

Looks like they changed the Event to Team Execution with a round time limit(I thnk it was a couple minutes).  Don't know how many rounds are needed for the win, as there were a lot of stalemates...I quit my match at 3-3 with maybe 7 stalemates during the match.  Come on Epic, quit with these marathon long match events!!

I played the new event but didnt get a ribbon, maybe cos i got one on thursday when it was still the old event?

 

Last night i play gears 3 all night long, judgment made me forget how fun gears 3 is. Still praying someday they will come out with a old school style of gears for xbox one. If they did that i would want to buy the system, but only if its done right. Not like judgment.

Yeah, according to what I'm reading if you already grabbed three ribbons from the Brothers to the End event, you won't get a new one from this event.

My gold dies in 3 days. I doubt I renew. I mostly play Gears Judgment lately and at this rate the online to this game will be dead someday or maybe it will hang on with not many people playing it.

I enjoy it lately and didn't care much for it at first. I've prestiged twice. I haven't played it as much as I did Gears Of War 2.

Now I enjoy Gears Of War 3 and Judgment and don't care much about the mp to the first two. Gears Of War has enough people playing it, but Gears Of War 2 is basically dead. You might get lucky and get 3 people on each team if you wait long enough.

There is ways to get a free month of Live repeatedly.  I think it's even been posted a few times in the deals section, and that it just requires a specific credit card company.  I do expect the game to become really empty once people unlock Sybarite.  That seems to be the final achievement people are holding onto this game for.

 

I played Horde mode in Gears of War 2 a few months ago and was able to find games.  People quit after a few rounds, of course, which was lame.  Or you had the serious players that ended the match as soon as we all died.

 

It's the downside of older games.  The 'community' move away from it, and you're either left with the people who don't know teamwork or take it too seriosuly and aren't fun to play with or against.  Halo, Gears of War, Call of Duty, Battlefield....  All fun games, until a year or so after there release.  Everytime I want to play Call of Duty: World at War I reminded of how many hackers are there.

Does anyone play this game anymore? I recently got 3 months of Live so im trying to wrap up some of the achievements i need.

 

- Onyx War Supporter, currently at 26/30

- 50 double kills with Booshka... i hope you can do this in private now.

- Revive 100 teammates on terminal, currently at 70/100 and it seems to work in private.

 

Achievements i could use help with...

- Get a double kill while emerging as a corpser... not sure if they ever fixed this so you can do it in private.

- Destroy the generator in under 8 minutes on any DLC map.

- Finish wave 10 of survival at the 1st hole on ward

- Win a TDM, DOM, and BT match while all wearing UIR skin

- Win an Execution match with everyone wearing Gold, and using Gold guns. ... sadly i still dont have gun armor skin.

 

If anyone else needs help with these let me know. I usually am available after 8pm ET until late.

1.  You need two human enemies to die to activate the double kill ribbon for this, so it doesn't work with bots.  You should be right about it working in Private, though.

 

2.  Play Private Survival on Normal or Hardcore (not Insane, you'll die to quickly).  Just be ready to throw a stim to revive your 'downed' bot buddies.

 

3.  I think it works with bots, so it might be doable in Private.

 

4.  This one you can actually do solo.  I think the last DLC map, Ward, is one you can get through pretty quickly on the lowest setting.  That's if no one offers to help.

 

5.  Same as above, you might be able to do it solo. It depends on class skill and, really, bot reliability.  I think I did it as Paduk, since his spot grenades also give extra damage to enemies when they're hit while inside the grenade.  It also let me know where they were coming from.  This was on Ward.  The later Waves, especially 9 and 10, can be the ones that will ruin it, but that's why you're so dependent on the friendly bots.

 

I'd offer to help, but no longer own it.  I've been debating for some time to rebuy it, though.  If I do get it again and you still need help I'll message you.  Hopefully you'll get 4 players from here, since these work best with a group and really aren't that difficult when working together. 

 

You probably have done so already, but don't forget to post it on the new Gears forums.  You'll probably get help from there the same day/night you post it.

If you get a group together, I can help out as well.

 

I'm still looking for someone to help me complete the final level, the final boss fight, on insane.  So I'm looking for someone to play on casual and do all the work while I play on insane and mostly hide and run away, basically.  :-)  I got all the other levels done a long time ago, but never managed to do that finale.

Does that work? I thought if someone was on a lower level it brought everyone down to that level? If i remember correctly its actually easier to do it solo on insane than to do it with others.

You know, it's been almost a year since I played it, but I think so.  If I remember correctly, you get credit for beating a level on insane this way, but what you DON'T get is the onyx stars.  So, this method should get me the "Lion Heart" achievement, but not the "Superstar" achievement.

Ohh i see. Ive been talking to a few people on black tusk gears forums that are gunna help me get the last few i need. I have all gold armor/weapons now. I only need like 6 more achievements, and 5 really do need help from others to get. The biggest pain is going to be 50 booshka doubles as they only work on human players even while playing online games vs bots. All i really need is another person with 2 controllers, as i have 2 controllers and can help them back. The rest shouldnt take too much trouble.

I did the booska double kills in a boosting session a while back.  Worked well not having any bots getting in the way.  But we can set up a time and I could help you with that with two controllers.

Thanks for the offer, but today i got together with some of the black tusk forum guys and we did a bunch of achievements. The only ones i need are the golden armor/guns and the social events. I have 26/30 of the social events, hopefully they keep changing them. As for the golden artifact one, i should have no problem getting that, we are just waiting for one guy to get the skins so he can join our group.

 

Now the question is, do i try to go for the Gears 1 achievements, the only ones im missing are multiplayer related LOL. But i know some are to host matches and my connection is bad, 2.8mb down and 0.48 upload. -_- Plus i read that the achievements can be hard to get because if people quit they wont count, etc.

Wow i was trying to use 2 controllers to help 3 other guys and myself get the golden artifact achievement, and we went into a private match so i could maybe set up the 2nd controllers skins to gold and maybe it would stay the same when we went online. Ended up resetting my save and now im back to 1 like i never played the game before. :( I needed 2 achievements, golden artifacts and was up to 27/30 events. No way i will be able to get 30 events in 3 months of live i have left. :(

Makes me even want to give up on the gears 1 achievements i have left. Needed 100 kills with boom, snipe, torque, hammer of dawn, pistol, 10,000 kills, and 100 annex matches and i was done.

EDIT: Im gunna try to get my gold skins back by using the terrace glitch offline. So hopefully i can at least get that one done and maybe later they will just push everyone up to 29/30 events like they did with gears 3.

FINAL EDIT: I was able to get all the golden skins back so if anyone can help at all let me know on xbox if you are on. Also i found an old save from judgment on my other hard drive so maybe that will help me get my special events up faster.
