(*) The stupidity of the person who tried to Rush for the Power Weapon in the first place.
You say that the guy went for the power weapon and got downed, correct? Well the current 15 second bleed-out time encourages such play and the player got used to playing like this, and so, tried to rush for the power weapon because with the 15 second play, you can rush for it and your teamates would keep firing at the opponent while you crawl back to cover (because you have 15 seconds to do that, and this is what he was used to doing all this time)..... This is one reason why battle for power weapons is much less intense when it comes to Gears 2....
The Real question is: Did he do ever do that again? I dont think so.... you see, now there is WAY more risk involved, and the battle for the power weapon is much more intense, also if one of your teamates go down: its that much more of a risk for you to revive him. In your scenario, the 5 second bleed-out time increased tension in the game making it more exciting. It gave lesson. What happened in the next couple of rounds? That is the real question.
Lets get back on track people and push for 5 seconds for Execution, and may be 10 seconds for Warzone (if there must be another, separation must be)
You think 15 second bleedout leads to getting downed and killed from someone running across the map.
You then say 5 second bleedout would fix this.
This is not a fix to make execution more "up close and personal."
This will only lead to more people using assault rifles--the hammerburst would work very well--to get downs from across the map. Only difference is that you wouldn't have to run across the map to collect your kills.
5 seconds would really set execution apart from warzone.
It would be amazing.
I vote yes.
I miss so many things from Gears 1 and 5 second bleed out is one of the many. I actually would rather play 1 than 2 anymore, but most of my friends only have 2.
This would really set a good seperation between warzone and execution. I enjoy both game types, but I favor execution becuase it feels like more of a challenge and I am getting the most out of the money I paid for the game. I really don't find it fun sitting behind the same area of cover on a map for the majority of a match lancering/hamer burtsing, I want the battle to cover larger areas. I paid 60 bucks for this game so I want the most out of it.
If I play warzone I can down someone from a far and than kill them while they are down. execution makes that more difficult. You actually have to work for you kill. When I get a kill in execution I feel like I have earned it, warzone...not so much.
Basically, a 5 second bleet out would just benefit the execution game type and it's entire game experience. If you like warzone rules...play warzone.
Again, I vote yes, but it is a shame EPIC will either never see this or just ignore it like all the other complaints they have from their dying fan base.
Bump. 5-seconds please - EXECUTION ONLY!
Bumping up. Can we please move this to the Gears 3 section?
this is pretty much why I play warzone over execution, either way,once your down, its over. Thats not the execution i remember. You have my vote
There are 3 kinds of people in the world-
The ones that know how to count, and the ones who don't

Bumping for 5-seconds!!
10 seconds is best
gears 3 bleed out is like 10 seconds.
You must realize that the forums are not 100% of the audience, 5 of my friends think this idea is silly. Fine the way it is, I really don't see what the big issue is :/
Thank you Epic for listening to your fans and Fixing the SOS
Thanks to Whipped Man for my Green Lancer Skins!

5 sec I thought was the norm 15 secs is way too long
The question is loaded. Bring "back" 5 second execution? It never was 5 second execution. Many gears 1 players hosted 5 second execution games, and some did not. It was never official, and I've always preferred to be rewarded for using more than 1 gun.
Edit: The shorted the bleedout time, the less players have to think about whether it's best to crawl away or tap A and get up faster. I doubt EPIC will lower the bleedout so low that a new game mechanic is null and void.

Support universal shotguns spreads! Or at least make the difference between them really really really tiny
10 sec is great.
Why not 5, bcause you wont be able to do an execution (HOLD Y till the circle fills) other than a curb stomp before he gets up.
Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.
no i want 10 seconds 5 is to short for this
