I know the feeling, I also have that "want" mentality with the characters, luckily I do not care that much for weapon skins. I'm annoyed I didn't pull GG, but enough is enough and the truth is I'm not sure I would ever use him, I did pull all weapon skins and they are actually smart for a change. I'm pissed off I didn't get Myrrah, because Myrrah!
I tend to stick with Legendary Sam 90% of the time in vrs. I'm also still using the London supporter weapon skins 90% of the time, although I do change them from time to time.
If I use a B.S. variant (Anya or Bernie) I use the "Lightening" style ones.
When playing Swarm faction, I use savage Kantus with Gold skins (at the moment) or B.S Drone Elite, If I use a B.S. variant I use the "flame" style ones. I think I have used Deebee's in one game ever. I have scrapped all but 3 legendaries of those.
The point being is I do not change it up very often, unless playing Horde. IF I do pull Skorge today though, he will be my go-to Locust. I have 20'000, so ten packs. I will only be getting one at a time though on the off chance I get early doors.

With Myrrah, I got her in the third pack I opened. Go figure. In fact I've been pretty lucky with most of the 2000 credit packs. It's the recent 400 packs that have been the grind, it took 34 Sniper packs to get the character, and I've opened about 60 GG packs now and still no GG. I have pulled one Gary, but I already had him. Maybe I'll get lucky on the Skorge packs?
As for what I use, on the COG side it's normally Bernie or Hoffman, with the Warbird set. On the Swarm side, I'm using the Savage Grenadier Elite currently and the Onyx Gold set.
I couldn't even be arsed to grind the game for the characters. Characters should be level unlocked in my biased (and time constrained) opinion.
But then, that's too easy and doesn't draw in the extra cash they're hoping for.
I'll happily stick with base shit, or things that I can craft though.
Some (proper) locust would've been nice though!
I can see them going down the armour skins route to add more customisation. Imagine having Marcus with Locust boots or mix & match between the current skins. Helmet, or not. Doorag, or not.
I’ve also never used the deebees. Hate them. Locust is my Swarm and either Old Man Marcus or Kait for COG. Maybe mechanic Baird, he’s my OG favourite.
As long as luchador is no longer available
The rng gods are on my side once again. I pulled Flame Grenadier on pack 1 and most importantly Skorge on pack 6. I'm just about to road test them
My only pack gave me colour blast swarm sniper.
Enjoy Skorge. I’ll wait until he’s craftable in 2021.

I feel for you mate don't forget Sunday is 4x XP, can you get on them ? Quicker levels means faster credits earned, maybe get another chance.
@DUFFMAN5 Morning Duff. How's Gears these days? The only thing I'm missing is playing with you fine folks.
Morning mate. Gears is still the greatest thing, that is not to say it can't be feckin frustrating of course. I have uninstalled the game twice due to being so disheartened...and hastily reinstalled less than an hour later (all 90+gigs)
I battle with my lack of skill in nearly every match I play, I hate the lack of any teamwork or coms in KOTH but I totally and utterly love it, much like I do all the previous Gears...even bits of Judgment
I am very likely addicted to it. The first game I boot no matter whatever else I have on the go is Gears, do not see that changing maybe ever.
Probably the biggest upset this time round is that we all don't play anymore.
I do get games with BFG from time to time, mostly Horde which is always great with him. Other than that I have played some matches with Spank,barbour,vortex and obviously yourself and neo and marko but those games are few and far apart.
Do you think you will return with Gears 5, prob out in late 2018,early 2019. It would be great to have all the team back.
Morning Duff. Yes I should be back for Gears 5

After a year of putting it off (tedious first act, shitty cast of characters) I finally completed the campaign over the weekend. Such dogshit. It was just rote encounter after rote encounter, with little to differentiate it over the previous games. Sure, it's the fourth in the series, but it shouldn't take until the final act to actually entertain me.
Felt almost nothing for Drake and his crew the whole time - so vanilla. Only a late appearance from some old faces made me feel anything at all, as even the grizzled Marcus Fenix did nothing for me since I wasn't playing him.
I think, as with the previous games, I'd have enjoyed it a LOT more in co-op. This is the only Gears I've ever played single player, so maybe they've all been shit played this way.
Briefly dipped into the multi, and it was as excellent as I remember, but I don't have the time to git gud vs. people who have been hammering it for a year.
Won't be standing in line for Gears 5.
At least it looked decent (1440p on PC, details maxed out) if a little clinical.
Thoughts on the October Update, gents?
Half arsed as ever
