    @GearsofWar @EpicGames @CoalitionGears since entering act 3 in the sand area the game does nothing but lag. Constantly removing me from the game.. it's been fine up to now but this is just unplayable. #Gears5 fix it please

  • Decadence_3 Decadence (@Decadence_3) reported

    @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears @OctusTC Have they fixed the problem with people quitting and affecting skill points. This seems to have gotten worse. The ranking was working as intended at the beginning. Also, your own teammates affect your ranking system.

  • GHOST18k Jordy Fuentes (@GHOST18k) reported

    @CoalitionGears Get ready people causé when they fix something 4 other things get mess up unbelievable the game is been out for more than 1 month and still is horrible to play damage on weapons is soo inconsistent the ranking system sucks cause even when you win and go mvp you loose points

  • Nojoke2288 Brittney Vest (@Nojoke2288) reported

    @CoalitionGears I feel bad for everyone having issues with Gears 5, it seems surreal. I’ve played since release and after week one I’ve had basically no issues maybe a hiccup with Xp on vs but that’s it. Crazy... it’d be a crappy day without my Gears fix 😢 Lololol

  • DanielSchou1 PoseidonsKraken (@DanielSchou1) reported

    @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears @OctusTC It's a broken ass system.

  • Porn26971053 Porn (@Porn26971053) reported

    @ascarytoaster @GearsofWar I bought it and still playing it tbh I have no problems besides ranked everyone knows that but that's it lol its literally lacking customization which they know, they fixed the servers and getting booted yallnare ****** physcopaths for skins

  • ZetaKnight ZetaKnight (@ZetaKnight) reported

    @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears @OctusTC honestly i think it has something to so with players quitting. its still has a problem regardless but when players leave it seems as though it recalibrates the "favored" element and expects you to have played even better than you did.

  • zE_bEE Brandon Young (@zE_bEE) reported

    @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears @OctusTC I start every day going down 2000 points it seems. Please! Explain the Ranking System and fix it!

  • Darley_Pacman HaitianJetskiie (@Darley_Pacman) reported

  • Dancovich Danilo Costa Viana (@Dancovich) reported

    @SendYouToGodV2 @mX_Rawr @Rawgamers2 @CoalitionGears @OctusTC That's an answer I've been reading since Gears 2 days yet still see people online. Game will be fine, they just need to fix it.

  • CyGnUsKilLerZ CyGnUs Hyoda 🇫🇷 (@CyGnUsKilLerZ) reported

    Hello @CoalitionGears, for some time, my sound on gears5 disappears and My microphone is not working. I'm on PC and i have a astro A40 tr. My drivers are up to date.Thanks for your reply

  • SnakesTonii Tonii (@SnakesTonii) reported

    @NunezGoW @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears @OctusTC Very very stupid. Broken, dissappointment all around. No way else to put it.

  • thirdsandwich jason arnold (@thirdsandwich) reported

    @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears @OctusTC Cant play ranked it's to painful. The lag and high pings and the lack of maps us killing it. I'm so sorry for the franchise as I loved them from day 1 but it's not fun.

  • Artistazombie Jonathan (@Artistazombie) reported

    @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears @OctusTC the same thing happened to me yesterday in climbing, I was at 6% of onyx 3, it went up to 18%, being the MVP. They have to fix it or explain how the ranked systems should work.

  • MatthewMiles_ Matthew Miles (@MatthewMiles_) reported

    @CoalitionGears I have tried doing Act 2 twice but there is glitch on the condor crash site. The safe won’t open which means I’m unable to progress. A quick google and many others are affected, please resolve👌

  • HART23KID HART💔KID (@HART23KID) reported

    @GoldenMakoto @EbolaKitty666 @CoalitionGears This is why i hate @OctusTC and everyone at that works for @CoalitionGears ,milked the fans off gow ultimate and gears of war 4 i seen this coming but the game is so shitty and full of bugs glitch after glitch, shotgun only has 6 shells and when you normal reload 3 shells really

  • SomeRandomBroBS Damon (@SomeRandomBroBS) reported

    @Olly_da_rastapa @Azarquay @Nerdbecca @CoalitionGears Fine by me, keep bitching on deaf ears. You wanna be part of the solution to fix the problems with horde, multiplayer, etc. Stop being a raging **** and give constructive criticism that doesn’t involve being an ass.

  • Olly_da_rastapa Olly fry (@Olly_da_rastapa) reported

    @SomeRandomBroBS @Azarquay @Nerdbecca @CoalitionGears You’re so ******* brain dead😂 ‘I bought the game willingly’ 🤡 yeah funny enough so did I, coalition wasn’t holding a gun to my head however it’s broken, boring and busted. You clearly have zero idea what you’re on about, you’re probably like 12 so **** off and play G5

  • MrAberrant MrAberrant (@MrAberrant) reported

    @CoalitionGears Please can you fix my weapon skins in horde :(. I’ve worked really hard on my TOD lately and it’s making me sad that’s I can’t see my gun skins my gamer tag on Xbox one is XRyker91

  • jamesmcrgaming jamesmcrgaming (@jamesmcrgaming) reported

    @CoalitionGears And this is why I uninstalled it all I ever see is issues which is a shame as gears in one of my favourite franchises

  • Favian72543695 Favian (@Favian72543695) reported

    @CoalitionGears please fix you’re severs. i got banned for 16 HOURS b/c of me being kicked out of you’re SERVERS

  • Markus61147309 Markus (@Markus61147309) reported

    @CoalitionGears I wish there was a black hole like in Fortnite that sucks in everything to do with Gears 5. 4 weeks server down and then spit out a finished game again. It's a disgrace in my eyes

  • MetalMonsterFNV Metal Monster (@MetalMonsterFNV) reported

    @CoalitionGears hey, I really like gears but the EU servers are really bad. I can't enjoy your game properly. If u can please fix it.

  • crispybeercan72 David Woolley (@crispybeercan72) reported

    @CoalitionGears Can you fix EU quick play matchmaking. Every game is loading in 80% bot filled or 1 versus 4 players.. Gears 4 was no where near this bad even towards launch of 5

  • SnakeisNomad Snake is nomad (@SnakeisNomad) reported

    @ptntakos @alex34201331 @ledbain21 @GearsofWar TC offering challenges or cost for characters that would have been launch content on previous games instead of fixing the issues in gamely mechanics first so earning anything would be enjoyed and incentivized ends up making it a worse experience to grind through let alone play.

  • 35Pewack1976 THA C0G FATHER (@35Pewack1976) reported

    @CoalitionGears Would also like to know how deaths and kills are possible via the kill cam that confirm the missed hits I have died countless times to missed hits but also don't get kills for pbr it will say 97% nearly every time even though it should be a kill The games great but needs aim fix

  • 9090Ryno Ryno_9090 (@9090Ryno) reported

    @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar fix ur poor server pls

  • SnakeisNomad Snake is nomad (@SnakeisNomad) reported

    @OGMooMooMiLK @starspawn_ @CoalitionGears @m_stargaming theres not an option for 4.5-5. 2 months and still riddled with issues, valid monetization schemes, server troubles, game balances constantly tweaking, and very little content for 3 years of "development"

  • SnakeisNomad Snake is nomad (@SnakeisNomad) reported

    @CoalitionGears Fix the voting, KOTH isnt showing up often anymore and everything else last less than 2 min a match....

  • SnakeisNomad Snake is nomad (@SnakeisNomad) reported

    @ptntakos @alex34201331 @ledbain21 @GearsofWar not really, the mechanics in 5 keep changing, gnasher dashing, lancers being tweaked, 35 sec rounds, horde mode restrictions, character restrictions for game modes, specialized abilities. Server problems still persists and they offer remade characters as "unlocks" or purchases

  • ThatGuyWavyDavy david pruneda (@ThatGuyWavyDavy) reported

    @CoalitionGears This game was bad from the start. Should have never given it to game pass. Should have never dropped it with so many issues.

  • M4Donnelly Michael Donnelly (@M4Donnelly) reported

    @CoalitionGears Wow I love gears but you guys need to fix this shit ASAP when cod arrives the gears community will be empty Phil Spencer has ruined game sales with gamepass

  • CogCouple CogCouple (@CogCouple) reported

    @R3VoLv3R_85 @CrimsonGOW @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears Everything in the store is a choice, the main problem with Gears5 is the experience you have in multiplayer. You have no choice in MP but to play the way TC want you too and that way is not for gears players. Understand that TC/xbox wanted new fans playing but this is to far.

  • RemnantUndying UndyingRemnant (@RemnantUndying) reported

    @CoalitionGears Going to try asking nicely to see if I get a response. Please fix the flash bang grenades. I just lost a wave 50 run because my teammates went down and I got hit by 3 flashbangs in rapid succession leading to me not being able to do anything but get shredded by guardians.

  • AsblSlater SlaterKing_SxD (@AsblSlater) reported

    @CoalitionGears Fix your game !!!

  • eviltedi greg (@eviltedi) reported

    @OllieSA96 @aarondamron1988 @xGHOSTxRYDAx @SuperJake213 @CoalitionGears They certainly do. The game is a shameless cash grab imo, and a broken one at that. Rod Ferguson said they were learning, so are we, biting the hand that feeds you is never a good idea.

  • ferro_matty MattyFerro (@ferro_matty) reported

    @CoalitionGears The bigest issue of this game is the microtransaction, thank you for have kill this game

  • HxCphoenix FB. FienX (@HxCphoenix) reported

    @CoalitionGears I just want to catch the entire “team coalition” at a party one night passed out drunk, and dip my **** in ink and smack it one each and every one of their foreheads this game is so ******* broken, just for payback for releasing an in alpha stage game at full price. **** yourself

  • AtmosphereNY Atmosphere/Flex (@AtmosphereNY) reported

    This just goes to show Ryan, @OctusTC and @CoalitionGears ignorance. They aren't even aware of what the biggest issues with the game are lol

  • LacedGameing (@LacedGameing) reported

    @Nathyyxxx @CoalitionGears Nope, there was a problem with not being able to purchase certain items like the aape pack

  • hisako_nick Dc Demi (@hisako_nick) reported

    @CoalitionGears Fix input delay

  • oldmateaus Heaf (@oldmateaus) reported

    @Hi_im_Georgie @CoalitionGears Probably dead already.. too many bugs and issues at launch I know I’ve already lost interest and Aussie servers are pretty rubbish

  • Ahmedbena6 Ahmed bena (@Ahmedbena6) reported

    @CoalitionGears Stop your bullshit, when i payed for that game, it was without issues. So either you fix it or you refound my money

  • CHRONIC_UK Off playing Xbox & Playstation games on my PC (@CHRONIC_UK) reported

    @CoalitionGears @XboxP3 Phil you need to help Coalition they are sinking fast their reputation is in tatters they obviously don't know how to fix their issues & theres a lot of them, read the comments from gears fans.... Gears 5 is the 1st game I've ever requested my money back on in 12 years.

  • jayhen219 GearsgamerJayhen219 (@jayhen219) reported

    @ShepardGaming_1 @CoalitionGears This game is ****** though. I supposed to play in the Esports tournament tomorrow but it's so broken. My last PGL match I couldn't see 1/3 of the map cause the trains glitched and froze on the map. Every aspect of multiplayer is broken,they can't even reward double stars.

  • lazarojpaez Laz (@lazarojpaez) reported

    @CoalitionGears fix your God damn spawns on King of the Hill. Literally just lost a close game because our team got spawned across the map from the point. Literally giving the advantage to the other team.

  • jeredchf hazy💈 (@jeredchf) reported

    @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears fix the game shits trash.

  • justinmtz00 justin (@justinmtz00) reported

    @CoalitionGears Fix your ******* game

  • NotoriouslyTiny Llewelyn Moss (@NotoriouslyTiny) reported

    @CoalitionGears Can you please fix the ranking system. No way I should get MVP on a team that won the game 2-0 and get dropped in rank.

  • Lolreg2 Lolreg (@Lolreg2) reported

    @Ryan36659128 @CoalitionGears That's audio lag

  • Anarky23068555 Anarky (@Anarky23068555) reported

    @CoalitionGears The issue is not resolved there is still major lag in the game and still keep disconnecting and reconnecting and when go into escape or horde half the games freeze and wont load and have had to restart at least ten times ive been on 8 hours got 12 levels thats all should have 50

  • Doctorbloobox Doc (@Doctorbloobox) reported

    @CoalitionGears Ok now please fix the character unlock system

  • lsilveiralg Lucas Silveira #VaiTrabalharSetteCamara! (@lsilveiralg) reported

    Just finished #Gears5. Wonderfull game, for me, best of the year, BUT, the achievements are bugged. The final achievement for the campaign, specially. Hey, @CoalitionGears, @GearsViking, fix this, please! Make it happen.
