    I have no idea how boxes really work in Gears 4. I take it they're like Halo 5, where a named box like this guarantees the thing on the name?

    @DFawkes
    Hi mate. You are not guaranteed a thing with Gears version of lootcreates. It is all RNG. I have spent thousands of credits not getting what I want or is the featured character in the pack. I have on occasion also pulled afore mentioned feature character pdq. Same for cash, you are still not guaranteed a thing.

    The only time you are sure of one of the characters is if you buy the esport supporters packs at £9 odd each (or megapacks) there is no facility to use credits on these packs. Even then if 3 new characters are released you will only get 1 and if you bought more packs, say 3,4 packs, you could get duplicates!!
    Up until last month you were not even guaranteed a thing with esports packs before then you paid your actual money and took a chance.

    Gears has one of the shittiest and unconsumer friendly systems out.

    Duff, I thought that if you buy one of the 10-Pack boxes, that youíre guaranteed at least 1 of the characters from it?

    I played 1-25 on Monster Mash Insane with randoms again last night and had a good time. My scout jumped from level 5 to 8 and we went the whole way only wiping on the final boss once. Thatís feels like a good balance for Horde now. :)

    You are right 're the 10 mega pack mate, I obviously didn't make myself clear :)
    Not played Horde for about a week, playing daily still of course, but just KOTH, love the mode.
    I'm actually not playing anything else, despite buying loads of the new releases!!!!

    Cheers for the info, Duffman :) The crate system in this sound a bit rubbish. Still, I'm enjoying the game itself now I'm actually putting a bit time into it, and there isn't all that much from the crates I really want anyway so it won't bother me too much.

    I haven't spent anything other than the price of the base game (dodged a bullet with this "season pass") but have managed to get most characters by just playing to get in-game credits or crafting.

    I hope if TC go down the same route with crates and SP with Gears 5 people have learnt from this one and vote with their wallets.

    To be fair, at least most of the content in the boxes is superfluous, as in it has little impact in the actual game, being mostly skins. Only the Horde cards truly mean something. It's no where near anything like Battlefront 2 for example... and hopefully never will be...

    Hi mate, what sensitivity are you running with, my cqc zoom is shite at the moment, it has been ok at around 26 but I'm not "tracking" quick enough with it all of sudden.

    Lag tonight is awful, the worst I have known it for weeks, just got kicked out of KOTH, when winning 1 nil and 165-25 in round 2...feck sake :(

    The packs donít have a big impact on gameplay, which is good. And Iíve also not put any money into them and got most of the characters I wanted up until RAAM. Since then, Iíve also Ďmissedí Skorge and Myrahh, so missing the unholy trinity ;)

    That's just not right though, every gears acolyte wants them. I splurged a lot on the locust boxes when they first came round and was really disappointed to only ever get many, many shitty weapon skin duplicates.

    I think it is a poor system and think they are effectively trying to force cash purchases. So glad i hesitated on the season pass.

    G5 better be a step up on this shambles. I do like it slightly more than judgement though. That red v blue gear battles for mp still doesn't sit right with me!

    Bang on mate, we obviously want to play as iconic characters, and with the time release, they very much want you to use cash.
    I think that 5 will have some character unlocks, probably campaign based, but the rng system will still be front and centre.
    I'm loving 4...most of the time ;) and have probably put more days in, than even Gears3. It is also fast becoming my most played multiplayer of the entire series!
    It is having a negative effect on my backlog and the new releases I continue to buy, again just like previous entries have done.
    I'm actually weighing up if I'm a "gamer" or someone who just plays Gears?

    Lag was alright for me over the weekend, bar one or two matches, usually seeing Spanish emblems in them (our version of Mexicans to the Americans!). You can tell they know they are fairly invulnerable, because they just try to run straight as you as you fire :roll eyes:

    As for my controls, look and target sensitivity is 28 currently. 30 is the maximum anyhow.

    Delta squad pack is getting released this month, to celebrate Gears 11th Birthday!
    Dom, weapon skins and emblem is this weeks pack, with Baird,Fenix and Cole to follow (1per week) each pack is 400 credits, 3 cards per pack, or 2000 credits per 5 card pack, and you get a chance at all 4 of Delta squad. I spent 16000 and got all the weapon skins and characters except Cole.
    Happy with that.
    New event as well, Warzone on Gears 1 maps only, with big heads.

    @vortex808 I hope it didnít sound like I am a fan of the packs. Iím not. The one thing they have done though is keep the game fresh and kept the fans talking about the game for a solid year. Iím sure that itís also helped their bottom line stay healthy too.

    Finding a way to have more playable events and earning skins that way would be a good thing for Gears 5.

    Gears 3 gets the X enhanced treatment - 4k.

    Interesting.

    Don't worry, I didn't think you liked them, I was just mounting my high horse about the poor implementation of stuff that TC have done. Yet again.

    Interesting about Xbo X upgrades for G3 that BFG mentioned- I'm probably more likely to go back to that more often, than to put much more time into 4 when I get my one x tbh!

    Opened some Gears Classic packs, glad to see they are only Epic not Legendary rarity heh. I think I've got pretty much all the weapon skins, and just missing Baird from the characters so far.

    I have all of it expect Cole, which is next week, so that is fine. Had some good KOTH today, actually getting MVP twice, this happens very rarely indeed!
    I was running with Palace Guard first and then my go-to BS Locust Grenadier, I seem to score more heavily when I use him, which I know makes no sense.
    COG wise I went with Delta Marcus, felt good with him again. I also played 20 waves of Horde with Delta Baird.
    I'm closing in on the first re-up after lvl 1000, sitting at 96. It is taken feckin ages. If I played more Horde I would get there faster but I have actually gotten a little board of it. My mp time played is actually catching up.

    Earned enough credits for another 2000 pack, and got Baird! So I have everything from the 11th Anniversary set now, don't have to worry about buying anything this month heh... just earn credits for December I guess!

    (so that was 9 of the 2000 credit packs in total I bought, I even got a Legendary, the DotD Boomshot)

    I'm a gnats whisker from Onyx3 in TDM, but the grind is so so slow... I'm earning like 0.8-1% for every victory currently!

    Also remember to try and earn those Nuclear skins!

    I think I took some 4K screens, but my XBL capture storage is full. Let me clear it out and then I'll post some here.

    Hmm. Apparently I only took one screen. I thought I'd captured a few. Make sure to open in a new tab to view it in full resolution.



    Here's a 4K Gears 3 screen as a bonus.
