I think the man up rule in the one life games felt wrong. However it works perfectly in tdm.

I will actually miss it. It was actually good suprisingly...worked well for competitive play. I hate camping and people that hide. Man-up served people right. Watch how many stalemates will happen now -____________________-
Where does it say it was patched? any statements from epic? and when will it be removed?
Hmm, looks like E was misinformed...
Check out my youtube for Gears of War content
Can't please everyone so i stick to the truth
They did this to stop boosting......like how you can make a warzone lobby of a 5 v 4 and get the auto win every 2 mins. But this method is gonna suck a** online since we have Sand Bar which is a huge map, OverPass which you can just camp on the stairs, and other maps.
Theoretically, the man-up rule is a bad rule because the leading team could just hole up with grenade plants, etc, and they're even more difficult to move in on than when the last guy decides to do it.
In practice though, I think it's actually worked out for the better. How often do you see a team get an early lead and just go into camp mode? I've played a gajillion matches of ranked execution and seen it happen maybe once or twice. FAR more often than not, the leading team continues to just play things straight up. Even if a team tries to do it, it's hard to keep all 5 players on board and someone generally gets bored and runs back into the battle pretty quickly.
Compare this to Gears 2 which had no man-up rule. Nearly EVERY time a team got widdled down to one or two players on a map like Jacinto or Pavilion, what did they do? Run back into the grenade area and tag it up, while you spend the next 5 minutes trying to slowly ween them out of there.
Yes, a team camping with the lead is much more annoying than 1 or 2 guys camping to try and draw the tie. However, when a team camping with the lead happens once or twice for every 100 times that a team behind camps with no man-up rule, it's worth it. FAR more matches dragged out due to camping to try and run out the time before the man-up rule existed than after it.
Agreed, Man-up rule should not apply for Warzone & Execution, TDM is fine
Countless times ive joined a TDM/Warzone/execution match partway through when some garbage players have been badly destroying bots only for me to come in clear them up and the last 2 cowards run away around the map! I cant flank them!! They can flank me! They have advantage already, if they cant kill me with numbers then they dont deserve the win. We play to kill not to camp or run! p*ssy tactics!!!!

Any update from EPIC on this? Thought it was a done deal to be changed back.
Wow i tough that the "man up rule" was gone for sure... are they reading this thread? come on in epic at least give us hope that this forum and this thread has a meaning
Warzone & execution should only be affected by this, hopefully
This rule ruined competitive gaming on GoW3
It was fun to watch one last player HAVE to be squashed to win. Now the man up team can just run out the clock.
The suspense is gone.
This is a stupid rule and is only handy for boosting the 3,000 Execution and 3,000 Warzone matches required for Seriously 3.0. In competitive multiplayer it is complete bull
Epic should remove it and instead add a stalemate counter (think like a third win counter). When it reaches 5 (or whatever the rounds are set to) the game ends and whoever is in the lead wins. Much better solution to constant stalemates than man up. Competitive play suffers from excessive stalemates, but also suffers worse with man up. Stalemates need to be limited, but putting in rules like man up just break down the competitive nature of Warzone/Execution.
TDM should keep man up though. It makes sense there.
How about no man up rule on public/ranked, but a choice for it on public? then everyones happy
Holy creatures, transform me into your humble servant, show me the path of enlightenment, as you alter my flesh and free my soul.
Please reconsider this. People are catching on about turtling up with only a minute in the match if they are up by one. Also stinks when your team has a bot when the other team doesn't. The bot will go out and die first unevening the teams fast. Just stinks.
if your playing a turnament that is competitive than you would play on private with long round lengths.
i never play execution so maybe my view is uneducated but to me if you can dominate the whole game for 9 minutes and one guy is trollin and just constantly running away and hiding and never even fires back then why should he "earn a tie" you clearly won the game like 5 minutes ago.
p.s. does TDM even have man-up, i swear that i saw a time over and the round counted as a tie?
I like this man up rule . It's bs when i have to sit and watch the last guy on my team hide in a corner like a wuss for the rest of the round when im out.
Would be very happy if someone sent me a code for a Liquid green skin , since no jack in the boxs around me in Canadia.
OP says Man Up Rule is removed? What? If a round ends and one team is up a man or more, that team still wins.
Or am I seriously missing or not noticing something?
I don't get why they would say that this issue had been fixed but then an update comes up and it was not included on that update. When was it patched for? title update 10??
Man Up Rule is stupid. Why should one guy have to rush/charge in and fight the other team if the other team has more than 1 guy alive. The point of stalemates is another chance at winning.

Totally agree. This results in the strange situation that a 3 men team starts camping and a 1 man team has to hunt the 3 men team.
Thanks Epic and Gears Community for making this console generation a special one! Goodbye Xbox 360, see you on Xbox ONE!

I like how epic said that they would change it if people wanted it changed, yet here is a poll showing majority and no comments on it AFTER they lied and said they fixed it.
