Because you talked about the Seriously achievements, I had to look at your TA stats.
You, sir, are a mad lad. I applaud your diligence.
Sometimes I wonder how many other games I could've played if I hadn't sunk so much time into Gears.
Aye pretty sure it was in 2021 when it happened to a friend however we didn't do much in VS back then so the jump in the percentage bar was significantly lower, he did unlock the 100k Kills in Hore though back then even though he was only a bit over 50% at that time... sadly can't say what triggered it for him back then, since even he can barely remember what he did there lol. And I remeber that they did somehting about Seriously Chapter 2 yeah, pretty usre there was even a survey beforehand asking about progress stop. As for Seriously Chapter 2 though all I have left is 2 Hives and well most Horde maps but all the really grindy stuff like max classes. re-up and inconceivable difficutly in cmapgain are luckily done. All in All I have 3 left now. Seriously Chapter 2, the 100k Kills in VS and to win one ranked match on the clocktower map... It never ever seems to reappear in the cycle though at least the couple times we tried...still have to win though if we ever make it in lol...
Did you finish the grindy stuff before they made it a lot easier with XP boosts and NG+?
I think River was the last map I needed for that ranked achievement. I'd go weeks without seeing it, then lose when it did show up and get voted for.
Which Hives do you still need?
Yeah, Dana Sissions, one of the community managers, has been raked over the coals many times for that comment about the 100k kills. Don't know if that was part of the reason he left The Coalition. Though many people left the studio since Gears 5's release. Running joke before they shut down the forums was that whenever someone asked for something, someone else would say the janitor would look into it.
Was really turned off by the RNG microtransactions in Gears 4. I did buy the Lambent pack they released, since it was a straight up purchase - no RNG BS. But because of that bad taste left in my mouth from 4, I didn't buy 5. Just played it through Game Pass, and now GwG. I'll probably still play 6 on my main tag.
