Purpose of this Thread:
To gain supporters who want to see the addition of new female locusts in versus.
I'm not a huge fan of the locust back story simply because so many questions are left unanswered. There are a lot of possibilities but I really do think they are never going to cover the actual conception of the Locusts. I'm hoping that they could just throw us a playable character or two and I'd be happy with that.
If they do add in these new locusts, I hope they incorporate them into their next Gears of War game as well as Gears of War 3 versus!
1. Update the backstory and create female locusts. - Flesh out the back story of the Locust Horde by adding new events and information about mating, reproduction, etc. to explain the emergence of these "new" female locusts. (least likely scenario)
2. Don't update the backstory and just give us female locusts. - Create them without any back story and throw them into the Gears Universe. (most likely scenario)
3. Assign a locust as "Female" and possibly change the character model. - Assign a current "locust breed" to be female. IE: All Kantus are female.
4. Don't do it, it's a waste of time. - Don't create them at all.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q - All this just for one stupid medal?/Who cares about the Battle Mistress Medal?
A - This thread has almost nothing to do with the Battle Mistress Medal, other than it's a motivation for multiple players to choose the exact same character skin in versus. Because of the medal, you will often see multiple players all using Myrrah.
Q - Aren't Beserkers the only female locusts?/What do you want mini-beserkers?
A - It is true, that apart from Myrrah, Beserkers are in fact the only female locusts in the Gears Universe, but the mission of this thread is not to get "mini-beserkers". This thread is about adding NEW locusts who are not a part of the Gears Universe to the Gears of War 3 Versus game mode.
Q - Do you want a new Myrrah skin or something?/We could get the Myrrah skin from Gears of War 2?
A - This is definitely a great idea, and something I am sure Epic is going to produce in the future. So I am 100% for this idea, but I really don't think it's enough variety for versus.
Q - Why do you want more female locusts in versus?/How many female skins do the COG have?
A - In playing Gears of War 3, you'll notice while playing versus or horde there are currently 4 (soon to be 5) female COG skins. While on the Locust side of versus there is only 1 female skin. I can speculate for hours as to why this is, the overall problem is that you have "No Choice" but to choose Queen Myrrah if you want to be a female locust. This gets to be very annoying/repetitive/boring because the same dialogue is said over, and over, and over. What multiplies this problem... Is that if more than one person on your team is playing as Queen Myrrah (I've seen 5/5 players as her before) you have no power to easily distinguish between your team mates.
