    @AmbassadorDopey @MSStudiosBlog @XboxAmbassadors @Xbox @GearsofWar @XboxSupport @CoalitionGears Hello, I have and there has been no help. I have been told to restart my account and I have a reference number but I’m told only the game owners can look at my data to help me because it is not a glitch.

  • Dom_God_Like Dom_Everything_2EZ (@Dom_God_Like) reported

    @JaimebecerraEM @CoalitionGears I just don’t get the whole “the game is dead” right cause you don’t play it’s dead or your friends just cause millions of people aren’t playing doesn’t mean it’s dead people play everyday I never have problem finding players to play with and play he’s to play in. So your opinion

  • ZacClement1 Zac Clement (@ZacClement1) reported

    @CoalitionGears Maybe you guys should fix the game on PC, since it's been broken for over a year now, to the point where it's unplayable

  • GeneticChaos Seph (@GeneticChaos) reported

    @CoalitionGears You could always release an update that fixes all the broken shit but that's apparently too much effort...

  • Vile_Solutions Solutions (@Vile_Solutions) reported

    @ProGear360 @TheDJNash @CogCouple @GearsofWar @NVIDIAGeForce Maybe. But like I said it's the only game I have severe issues with

  • ProGear360 ProGear360 (@ProGear360) reported

    @Vile_Solutions @TheDJNash @CogCouple @GearsofWar @NVIDIAGeForce Dude, it's 100% not a bottleneck. I have a 4770k and get 120 stable. Until I crash anyway 😂

  • ProGear360 ProGear360 (@ProGear360) reported

    @Vile_Solutions @TheDJNash @CogCouple @GearsofWar @NVIDIAGeForce Sounds more like your shit is broken rather than a bottleneck xD

  • Vile_Solutions Solutions (@Vile_Solutions) reported

    @TheDJNash @ProGear360 @CogCouple @GearsofWar @NVIDIAGeForce I was getting about 30fps at 1080p on all settings (I was at ultra before switching to the lowest). I'm currently using a 7700k until I have the money to get a new MoBo and cpu and it's not the only game with some fps issues with however it is the most severe.

  • Vile_Solutions Solutions (@Vile_Solutions) reported

    @ProGear360 @TheDJNash @CogCouple @GearsofWar @NVIDIAGeForce It didn't crash but the fps was awful. However I do have a slight cpu bottleneck so that could be a factor in the low fps

  • ProGear360 ProGear360 (@ProGear360) reported

    @TheDJNash @CogCouple @GearsofWar @NVIDIAGeForce @Vile_Solutions does. I know he was having FPS issues, but I don't know if he crashed.

  • oAo_Crunk oAo Crunk (@oAo_Crunk) reported

    @PaulLivo @CoalitionGears Lol I couldn't help but laugh... You need to constantly know your lagging around, skipping around isn't important just the symbol is

  • PC_G4M3R_ PC Gamer (@PC_G4M3R_) reported

    @OctusTC @FenixMurda @ProGear360 @GearsofWar Surprisingly enough, I have NVIDIA card and I don't seem to have this issue. However the fact that I barely can find matches is what annoys me at time. I could find one match in 5 minutes or less and then after that , I can't find a match at all. Hoping some form of fix.

  • joc978 Daniel Navarrete (@joc978) reported

    @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears I hope Gears 5 is so unrecognizable to gears 4 that people dont even think it's a sequel, because gears 4 is just absolute trash. The exploits are so broken they seem like glitches lol

  • ProGear360 ProGear360 (@ProGear360) reported

    @nodezero @OctusTC @FenixMurda @GearsofWar Oh and the odd cheater, but as a literal demi god, it's no problem 💪

  • ProGear360 ProGear360 (@ProGear360) reported

    @OctusTC @FenixMurda @GearsofWar @nodezero I never said it was a lack of effort, but it is just ridiculous. Like, I can't put into words how frustrated it makes me that I can't play the game that I love... I don't even really know what to say regarding the crashing issue... (2/2)

  • OctusTC TC Octus (@OctusTC) reported

    @BBQDanTheMan @ProGear360 @FenixMurda @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears Being vocal is completely fine. We’re not out to tell anyone otherwise - just wanted to reassure PC players that the issue doesn’t reflect our care for the PC version, just how complex it is.

  • BBQDanTheMan BBQ DanTheMan (@BBQDanTheMan) reported

    @OctusTC @ProGear360 @FenixMurda @GearsofWar I'm very vocal about the Nvidia crash issue. Not because I want to throw shade at @CoalitionGears, but because I love the game and some tough love is needed. A year and a half for a game breaking issue just seems really out of place for a AAA franchise.

  • OctusTC TC Octus (@OctusTC) reported

    @ProGear360 @FenixMurda @GearsofWar As for the Nvidia card issue, get the frustration around the length of time. It’s not as simple as patching something. It’s extremely complex. Extremely. We are doing everything we can to address it. No part of it is a lack of effort. Just a reflection of the issue. (2/2)

  • ProGear360 ProGear360 (@ProGear360) reported

    @OctusTC @FenixMurda @GearsofWar I feel like it was loved at launch, alot went into optimisation ect. But this issue has gone on for far too long Liam, you can't deny that. It's getting ridiculous. It's been a year and a half... A YEAR AND A HAAAALF. I and I'm sure many other PC players feel (1/2)

  • _AsGawdian_ 🖖 (@_AsGawdian_) reported

    @CoalitionGears there should definitely be a cut off on allowed pings. A ping over 200 should not be allowed in ranked matches. It causes issues for both teams and people with high pings don't seem to understand how detrimental it is and decide to play anyway.

  • BarrazaIbarra Reyes B. (@BarrazaIbarra) reported

    @GearsViking @Ruckuzz @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears Rod... The lastest drivers are the problem.

  • AVXNXE7 Alberto (@AVXNXE7) reported

    @Ruckuzz @GearsofWar @GearsViking @CoalitionGears I also have that problem

  • DarkarticCat Rae (@DarkarticCat) reported

    @CoalitionGears @GearsViking @Ruckuzz @GearsofWar I originally had this issue with it locking up my pc but I gave Gears a go and while I typically freeze 1-2 times, it does not lock my pc anymore. And after booting up again, I have no problems for hours (as long as my session lasts). Thankfully my issue has gotten better.
