    @GearsofWar If it took you 1h to fix a link (that shouldn't have been posted without checking 1st), we understand better why you fail to deliver and why multiplayer has become such a mess.

  • 2ManyMayo Charlie Work (@2ManyMayo) reported

    @Blunz_D @GearsofWar Hasn't been playable past few days.. 80-150 ping every match, every mode.. Never had a problem before.

  • CoailtionGears The Coalition Studio (@CoailtionGears) reported

    @Hunter24908785 @CoalitionGears Not our problem.

  • slink5282 slink (@slink5282) reported

    @GearsofWar Fix the unplayable horde lag. Great game had to stop playing.

  • SHiZOHD NJLOW (@SHiZOHD) reported

    @OctusTC @Psycolammy @danasissons @CoalitionGears Always looking on the wrong side of the problem. Why is the game putting 9 people on the server where 1 has a good ping. Should be the other way around! In this case it shouldn’t matter what time someone is playing.

  • IssaMidTing Tyreek (@IssaMidTing) reported

    @GearsofWar Fix matchmaking and these servers. My ping been too high for these days. Also add Ranked FFA

  • ChrisHappens91 Carole F. N. Baskin (@ChrisHappens91) reported

    @BadxWolfxWilly @GearsofWar He died in a horrific plane crash 😉

  • g86_mn MnG86 (@g86_mn) reported

    @GearsofWar Here's hoping you'll address your recent lies and fix them by next week. After all, it shouldn't take much since you said it was coming on March 31st, so everything should already be right there waiting for you to push a button.

  • fuckknightt ᴷⁿⁱᵍʰᵗ (@fuckknightt) reported

    @Official_Jayroc @CoalitionGears Same. The coalition Lacks general people skills & what it takes to run a proper developing studio. , They have no regards for customer service , promised delivery , consistency , making amends with their mistakes , & and creativity

  • iseebutters Raymon (@iseebutters) reported

    If this game is going to be this Broken I prefer you guys to not make anymore Honestly it's just so depressing 😥#Gears5 #GearsofWar

  • Sachant Sachant⁷ at Home (@Sachant) reported

    @PezRadar The other 'problem' is when he tries to push off of you to get to it. Those claws hurt! He looks so much bigger than a lot of Frenchies I've seen too, so he's got OOMPH.

  • BChapy BChaps (@BChapy) reported

    @MeMrfahrenheit @OctusTC @Nuhhgz @danasissons @CoalitionGears @GearsGentleman I've seen quite a few reports of this. Not only is there that issue on PC, but many of the controller people who play with remapped controls (and/or lefty flip) are having issues as well

  • MeMrfahrenheit It is I (@MeMrfahrenheit) reported

    @OctusTC @Nuhhgz @BChapy @danasissons @CoalitionGears @GearsGentleman I can't even re-bind my chainsaw / weapon ultimate on PC. It's forever stuck on 'R'. This game broken af

  • carlossora145 carlos duvan garzon (@carlossora145) reported

    @ANDRESSCUBIDES @CoalitionGears 4 requests and I got the same answer for the 4 basically telling me to wait 24 send requests does not solve the problem y en español ya mande 4 solicitudes y siempre me responden que espere 24 horas es una pardida de tiempo mandar reclamos

  • Surverino Christian (@Surverino) reported

    @CoalitionGears either the shotgun is broken in the start of every season or u guys are boosting bad players. im masters and my shotgun doesnt work at all.. can't play this game anymore. Thanks TC u ******* idiots

  • S_arge mX Papa (@S_arge) reported

    @CoalitionGears @danasissons I solo queue n end up against 4 and 5 stacks of full sweat with the greenest gamepass players on my team every single game, every single mode. You have the MOST broken n unfair matchmaking system out of any game. Your lame system causes so much stress

  • Rage_93 Hive Ragez (@Rage_93) reported

    @CoailtionGears @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons I know, Gears is going down and you don’t care about it. You going to loss more people from your studio, GO AHEAD! It’s just a bad copy paste from Halo 5 and your TC Army program with so many errors who never been solved to me. Go ahead been a bad studio. You don’t deserve Gears

  • FatMike44831859 Fat Mike (@FatMike44831859) reported

    @CoalitionGears Jermad character totem is completely bugged I killed few dozen of COG characters in verses with headshots with the Jermad totem equipped BUT IT WAS NOT COUNT AS VANQUISHED MEDAL ITS STILL ZERO This buGears 5 is totally bugged fix this shit.

  • lordmagus74 Brian J Canessa (@lordmagus74) reported

    @CoalitionGears you have to fix the glitch on lift with those gates. It shows that it’s closed but some how they can still shoot through them.

  • pablofe28690435 pablofernando (@pablofe28690435) reported

    @glitchgearinc @GearsofWar better fix the glitches of gears 5 anyway many people will not like that gears TC does not listen to his players little by little the company will continue to fall and how many people left the company and even epic games no longer collaborate

  • cyanide022 Ste Brassington (@cyanide022) reported

    The new gib range on @GearsofWar #gears5 is honestly awful. The shotgun tuning was spot on with the last update now it’s taken a huge step backwards. Honestly starting to lose hope with this game. New movement is great aside from the weird input lag.

  • Demon5379 Demon (Capt Sid “the sloth” 🔥👑) (@Demon5379) reported

    @Rogue11pro @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar @danasissons @OctusTC Yep that’s what big egos are like. Horde was so great in 3 nothing needed changes. A couple of QoL improvements sure. My biggest issue is they wanted to get away and their own take on things to get under from epic. Stupid. Could’ve been so amazing and numbers wouldn’t be bad

  • YaBoyJUMP Hardwork (@YaBoyJUMP) reported

    @UglyGod @CoalitionGears Gridiron fun the gnasher put it back to operation 2 because this ain’t it. Also fix the ******* ranking system Jesus

  • Surverino Christian (@Surverino) reported

    @CoalitionGears I lost 92 points for losing a game and i was MVP. and when I win a game being MVP i get 0 og 2 points (Im masters). ARE U ******* DUMB!! fix this ******* shit

  • vinny278601 Vincent (@vinny278601) reported

    @rPublicEnemy @GearsofWar The problem is facing a stack of 4-5 on pc! Their lancer is too strong etc and all other stuff. Ranked games should only allowed a stack of 2 max. Stack of 5 should be in custom and the dev should enable xp gained and TOD gain in PVP customs

  • Kianfox Sparkling Water (눈‸눈) (@Kianfox) reported

    Just wanted to remind @CoalitionGears that you ruined my favorite game franchise cause you're all greedy money grubs who cant fix day 1 issues in a AAA game, and would rather monetize things that were free/obtainable in other games then fix any issues. Thanks! :) #Gears5 #GOW

    @GearsofWar is so trash and your shot registry and ping is stupid as ****. @CoalitionGears do better, do better, do better. Fix your game and ridiculous inconsistency.

  • g86_mn MnG86 (@g86_mn) reported

    @GearsofWar @luke_preece You should partner with your own team and fix the blatant lies with Op3. What you said would be featured isn't there. Not touching anything Gears related until you rectify it.

  • Blu3F1r3starter ✴Blu3F1r3starter✴ (@Blu3F1r3starter) reported

    @IngMec15 @OctusTC @danasissons @CoalitionGears Hm same for me. It looks like there is a general problem with the 2v2 Rewards. I have seen many of those requests.

  • HassanS53921786 Hassan Shabir (@HassanS53921786) reported

    @CoalitionGears you have ruined gears of war for me. There are so many problems with gears which get un addressed and the changes made with the shotgun this update have ruined it, it is so inconsistent 😡

  • Razors_Renegade Tyler White (@Razors_Renegade) reported

    @CoalitionGears fix you're ******* ranking system you ******* idiots. I'm absolutely tired of getting legit new players on my team when the entire other squad knows everything. Dropped over 100 kills for another loss while one random dropped 22 in 3 rounds. You guys are a joke

  • Im_NightCrawler Kurt Wagner (@Im_NightCrawler) reported

    @OctusTC @RodFergusson @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar Can’t Explain How Frustrating It Is To Fight Hard As Hell For A Cap In KOTH Only To Have An Enemy Team To Spawn On You And Surprise Your Entire Team Fix The Spawns And Give Us Back The “Spawns Have Changed” Notification.

  • SHiZOHD NJLOW (@SHiZOHD) reported

    @GearsofWar fix ranked matchmaking - its getting worse with masters/diamonds mixed with silvers! activate quit penalties! its already over 6 months and still not fixed - this is unplayable and unaccetable! Cant think off another game with such a bad ranked experience.

  • g86_mn MnG86 (@g86_mn) reported

    @GearsofWar Focus on fixing the lies regarding Op3. XP/medal/totem progression in private versus, which you said was coming with this. You said you listened to the Gears 3 fans. Fix your mistake.
