What the hell is wrong with Cliff? Adding this multiplayer BS! You can't choose the gametype you want to play, where you play it or for how long! It throws you two gametypes you dont want to play and two maps you dont want to play...and EVEN if I started to actually enjoy the garbage it through at me, the game would be over in mere minutes. Then its back to the half hour wait for another half assed match.

Yeah I could not agree more....



with the first guy...I'm basically a Gears of War Fanatic...and all the promising from EPIC on getting rid of elements they did not want in the game has caused for a lot more things that make no sense to me...this games is broken right now...maybe an update is in store...if not...likely returning this game after the campaign and Horde are done

Posted from before:

Considering their are alot of improved features in GOW2. I agree, with you totally about the matchmaking! You can't choose what game type(s) you want to play specifically or what maps you want to play! No maps cycling either? What is it with that?? These were great features that GOW1 had and should of been implemented in 2 for sure. It takes forever to connect to the matches now, not even GOW1 had this problem when it first came out! When the match is over, you get bumped out of the room and need to search for a new game with new people, where it takes another 2-5 minutes sometimes longer! I used to love playing with the same group of people for hrs. in GOW1! You would really have fun when you start getting to know your team and opposing team and play several matches together. Their was a sense of rivalry to that! This was a great feature from before that I only hope gets patched in the future!

Hey guys, new here. Just thought I'd come and share my thoughts on the multiplayer system in Gears of War 2. I noticed a lot of the issues have been touched upon, but I figured I'd note some of my specific ideas. Also note that I'm a huge fan of Gears of War one, and consistently played it ever since it's release... 80%+ time on my 360 has been Gears. As for the multiplayer in Gears 2:

Matchmaking system: If it was configured correctly, it probably would be fine. However, the time it takes to put the party's into a game is ridiculous. Also, the fact that you can't customize settings/host your own game is terrible. I loved being able to host a game in Gears 1, be able to set a game mode/settings and map cycle, and retain the same people throughout the maps. Now your bumped back to the individual party lobby after every match. Not a fan of the voting system at all.

Also, the fact that you can't leave games is extremely annoying. I joined a game with 3 seconds of lag, and was forced to exit the Gears of War 2 game completely by going back to the dashboard... thats not a very good feature Epic. Thats just going to really aggravate people.

The Private Match system is much closer to what I'm looking for... only it should be public! At least in private matches you can set your own settings and choose a map.

All said and done however, I think the multiplayer system in Gears of War 1 was much better. It was quite simple, but it offered a very easy and fun system to use. That's all in the past though... for Gears of War 2, do you think they will be making any changes? I know I'm not the only one upset, considering almost everyone I've talked to has similar ideas. To what extent could a patch go to in fixing at least some of these issues?

Thanks guys. I'd also like you all to know I'm not crying about it anything here. I love the GoW series and will continue too. Just pointing out what I believe are some significant flaws in this multiplayer edition in Gears 2.

I love the new matchmaking

At least you aren't constantly playing Warzone of Gridlock
I got pretty sick of it

I agree entirely. EPIC are going to ruin the gears multiplayer fan base if they dont sort this out. Hopefully they'll patch it.

Can they patch something as big as the entire matchmaking system?

I agree. But the wait is definetly worth it. I've had so much fun cycle through playing all of the game types and all of the maps. It's something we have to overlook, i see it as being similar to getting booted all the time in gears 1.

Yeah...I'm have problems with the multiplayer too.

Takes way too long to organize teams (...and I work. Don't have much time for gaming.) Can't configure your own map with weapons...can't retain the same group at the end of a match, etc, etc...

One other thing...what happend to the pool of blood that would slowly spread under a body following a kill?? I've only had the game for 3-days so I'm hoping I find a way around all this...or (ugh!!!) get used to it

There's an old saying...if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Gears was fine as is...just needed an enhancement, not a re-tooling.

Here's hoping for for the patch that gets us back to some hand sweating fun...
