I hate TDM so I am not enjoying it all, and it won't even give me my ribbon.

Why is it that people still can't bring themselves to play ranked even when they have no chance of running into a full party.
This is an unnecessary playlist we don't need to add to the others, simply put 80% or more of players that play this game suck ass and I am just going to put that out there now. We already have 6 other playlist each with a quick match option for a total of 12 playlist and with this we have 14. What needs to happen is get rid of Alpha and in my opinion QM or at least the leaderboards for QM. Too many playlist spreading out the population for no reason, its already bad enough we have 4 variations of kill based gametypes for no reason.
Gears of War - (1100/1250)
Gears of War 2 - (1750/1750)
Gears of War 3 - (1900/2000)

Keep this mode and make it have random assortment of Game Modes voting able in the Lobby when choosing skins, map, character and loadout.
if i wanted to kill myself, i'd f*cking kill myself. shotgun to the dick.i'm a locust kinda guy.
Remove quick match from this mode.
WHAT? I can't believe this, I didn't realize that they had taken the weapons. Why would you want to revert back to Gears 2? People get so caught up in the past, Gears 2 had its time if you, if you want to play Lancer/Hammerburst and Gnasher as your only primaries, trade in your Gears 3 and go and play Gears 2. Otherwise stop complaining/b*tching/whining to EPIC about petty things and play Gear of War 3.
Signature removed, over allowed size
It's not about regressing the game as much as it is being able to preserve what the game's meant to stand for. Epic has tried so hard to move away from the 1 man team gameplay Gnasher dominance creates, which unfortunately, is the same type of gameplay the Retro and Sawed Off create.
Besides, the difference between Gears 2 and 3 isn't just the Sawed off and Retro Lancer. There's also improved graphics, smoother gameplay, dedicated servers, new maps, new pickup weapons, and a slew of other things that make Gears 3 what it is. A couple of starter weapons being changed to pickup weapons doesn't change that this is a totally different game from GoW2.
There's no skill-based ranking system, the gameplay is largely the same, you're not guaranteed to find better or worse players in comparison to QM, and you're not guaranteed to be put in a match as quickly as possible. There's just no feasible reason for choosing Ranked over QM outside of any stock that's put in the word "Ranked". It means nothing in Gears 3 in all honesty.
This is my favourite gametype now.
Many thanks to mikizm for a Commando Dom code.
If it was Execution, or even Warzone, I'd be all over it. Team Deathmatch though... not so much.

i say remove alpha and replace it with this one is so good
I would like to thank PopeAdrian37th for my awesome Jungle Tai skin
Thank you Mr Gearhero for my Paintball skin
THANK YOU EPIC!!!!!
KEEP THIS PERMANENT!!!!
I really cant believe how perfect this game mode is.
Yeah this is as close to Gears 1 as well get, so Ill take it
now just give us fuel depot, war machine, and canals idiots!!!
yes i love, the sawed off and retro are how they should have always been. map pickups, i do miss my flame thrower and my pistol.
i love alpha but this is perfect, i say they should scrap alpha and keep this
This is the best playlist.
(Also, I want a KOTH lone wolf playlist)
played ten matchs...no camping in sight...feels liKe a gears game again...just wish they had it for execution
Sounds awesome. Sounds like a keeper.
But I cant get on my xbox for the next couple of days...
As a player who constantly gets put up against stacked teams while playing with randoms, I welcome this gamemode. However I am not a fan of Alpha rules. I would prefer Epic to make seperate playlists in ranked for people who like to play by themselves.
Sadly every match I played of this playlist tonight was a total camping expedition. You couldn't get guys out there fighting. Just pop, pop, pop from their rifles.. Ugh.
They should add other game types into the playlist as well. I'd love to play ranked Exe and WZ without ending up playing against a stacked team almost every time.
If Epic would do that I'd definetly support making it a permanent playlist. I voted "I would love for this to be permanent" anyway, though.
Probably the most fun I've had in gears for awhile. Without the sawed off it really improved my enjoyment of the game immensely. Please make this permanent or replace it over alpha.
Its good for avoiding the dreaded "stacked" team, but i miss BTTE
Read some more posts, this sounds better than i thought. hmmmm
Haven't played it yet but it sounds excellent. Can't want to hop on gears tonight.
Gears Since 2006.
It should be set up like:
-Capture the Leader
-King of the Hill
-Capture the Leader
-King of the Hill
Then obviously quick match/ranked for each individual mode. I think it would work really nicely while not making everything cluttered.
People are acting like they have never played without the SO and Retro...Alpha?
Anyway, Stranded is scoring a meh out of 10 from me so far. As someone that always wants to play with others, I doubt I'll play it much. I'd rather they kept BTTE than this...
