    @OctusTC @danasissons @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar @nodezero I just came from a 7-0 from my side and a 7 - 2 from their side and a 7-1 from our side. “So we are actively looking to it” means we’ve are monitoring the situation and there is not a problem or we are monitoring the situation because something does not work?

    @OctusTC @danasissons About all this matchmaking problem the turing that i do not like is that nodezero took the time to answer. If there is a problem and @CoalitionGears knows it why is not the @GearsofWar account to post about it. 1/2

    @CoalitionGears @GearsViking @danasissons issue has been ongoing for over 2 years with thousands of gamers unable to play the game, I've had xbox support on the phone trying to fix it, but 10 minutes tonight of my husband messing with the game and he has fixed it to the point I am now playing it in single player

    Rod Fergusson (@GearsViking) reported

    @SamanthaSmart01 @CoalitionGears Ouch. I can do the usual and suggest re-installing it. But I haven't heard of this issue being systemic. Have you tried it on external storage?

    I would love an explanation for how your trash ranking system works @CoalitionGears Im in a 5 stack tdm and we have won at least 15 matches in a row but and not move up a single percent but when we lose one match I got down 4 percent. Fix this trash @nodezero @danasissons

    Lucky #Gears5 (@Lambent_Lucky) reported

    @Ops235 @GearsofWar Should never trade with somebody who's ping is 5 times mine. I wish @CoalitionGears would hire some talented devs and fix these issues.

  • Ops235
    Ops#gears 5 (@Ops235) reported

    @Lambent_Lucky @GearsofWar i agree and whats worse is that there pink sucks so everyone one ping gonna go straight to 1100 cause the servers to crash

    Just played against a team with 150+ ping. They seriously had the biggest advantages. They would lag so bad, by the time I killed one, we trade. @CoalitionGears

    @CoalitionGears @GearsViking @GearsofWar Happened like an hour ago the match was about to start then kicked me with a error screen didn’t get a chance to take a picture of it and me and a friend got 30 min penalties.

    @OctusTC @BChapy @danasissons @CoalitionGears Could you borrow a PC from one of the map designers and stream Mixer on one PC and Twitch on the other? Or even setup a VM and do the same thing with on PC. Solving the no low latency issue :)

    @GearsofWar I stopped playing a while back because I would end up in 10 minute queues just to have the lobby dissolve. I had/have no idea how to fix the issue. Not sure if anyone else has experienced this problem? #help

    @GearsofWar When you thought Clayton died in the helicopter crash, but then he bent over and dusted his helmet off. I even named one of my aloe plants after him. My favorite Carmine brother.

    @azure_blaze4 @GearsofWar I thought gears 3 was much better than 1 and 2. Felt much smoother than 1. 2 I had constant lag issues

  • oXo_Raffo_oXo
    Raffo (@oXo_Raffo_oXo) reported

    @OctusTC @GamFercho @CoalitionGears @danasissons I think the problem is not the fact the he lost but the fact that he match is not funny. As we play to have fun. And that is the problem i have when matchmaking just screw it up.

    @YongYea @YongYea #InfiniteMonetization is about right. It looks like @Halo is going to the route of games as a services. Perhaps @Microsoft will take other @Xbox franchises like @GearsofWar and @ForzaMotorsport as a 'service' too?

    @CoalitionGears. Your servers are not good. they are super unstable in xbox one as much as in pc if it is not the RAID error.

    @CoalitionGears Please fix the issue, when in half of the matches the lobby is half empty. Playing 2vs2 or 2vs3 is kinda meh

  • Markavich
    Mark A. Williams, II (@Markavich) reported

    @Shamed_Knight @CoalitionGears @CapcomVancouver But if I don't follow them, how will I be alerted to the random errors that pop up? Exactly. I don't know where you reside, but in my country, we have these things called Amendments. The 1st one says I can say whatever the hell I want, whenever the hell I please.

  • Markavich
    Mark A. Williams, II (@Markavich) reported

    @Shamed_Knight @CoalitionGears @CapcomVancouver Haven't touched horde and I used to play it all the time in G2. That campaign was barely 5 hours long. I don't care about the "free" because I paid my dues. My original message to the recently laid off was to find a job somewhere else bcuz The Coalition can't fix MP.

  • GeneticChaos
    Seph (@GeneticChaos) reported

    @CoalitionGears Also while I hate the melee in OSOK, removing it causes that issue that you end up getting 10 ***** clicking their guns waiting for ammo to spawn.

    @danasissons @nodezero @OctusTC @CoalitionGears Let's get real here.. How are we going to bring up an issue that might be spoken about in 4-6 weeks, let alone get fixed. This issue was just discovered by my stream, hence I brought it up, at that point. Where are the changes to Core that were said to come if 2.8 was good.

    Og Quoby (@OneBizarreGuy) reported

    @HybridExcess @EssRoxxane @Alucxrds @GearsofWar Updates didn’t even fix the game? Without monthly packs and updates, the game just gets stale and boring. After reaching diamond it just gets boring dude. Once gears 5 gets released, it’ll be the same thing unless they fix their game

  • OneBizarreGuy
    Og Quoby (@OneBizarreGuy) reported

    @HybridExcess @EssRoxxane @Alucxrds @GearsofWar You need stats to see that the game doesn’t have alot of the players that it started with? There’s a reason for that too! The devs barely listen, micro transactions, broken game, not alot of updates, literally like 1 new gear pack every 3 months. This game is dying lmao

    @GoguiAldair @_Mistah__J @CoalitionGears @sick_mod3rFakr @GearsViking Rubbish. You cheat. And you aren't better, you are just spongy cause you are so far away forcing US based servers to articially lag US players to sync Mexico based players.

    @CoalitionGears hey guys, i just installed GoW4 on pc and am having this crazy bug where whenever I use my XboxOne Elite Controller (or any controller for that matter) the vibration motors go crazy and randomly stop and start vibrating. Is it Windows, and can I fix it?

    @CoalitionGears Are there some issues with servers today? Play in the EU and it keeps getting stuck on loading map until everyone gets kicked out and it repeats the process.
