As stated in the title, I've posted this thread before but due to my ranting(more on this later) it was removed because I used some "inappropriate" words. In my defense, EPIC, I did censor the swears.
Anyway, I recently came up with the idea for EPIC to add new load-out weapons to Gears of War 3. In my last post regarding this, I wasn't too happy with the responses, thus the ranting. Many people said that having a lot of weapons would drop Gears down to Call of Duty's level. I highly, HIGHLY, disagree with this. My idea when I came up with this wasn't simply to have a wide array of weapons, as with Call of Duty, my thought was that adding new weapons would open Gears up to people with play styles not necessarily supported by the current five weapons. While opening the door to new players, adding new weapons would simply add diversity to Gears of War online play. Making the game more unique even. In the last post, along with a lot of negative feedback, I did receive a few good suggestions: some weapons that, if added, could improve online play and open the doors to people that cannot use the Gnasher and, like most, hate the sawed off(me). But again with the negative feedback. Many of you went straight to Call of Duty with this. I'm not talking about 10+ rifles and 10+ shotguns. Perhaps just one or two good, new load-out weapons. However, one thing I did see that I liked on the negative side of things was concern that EPIC wouldn't do very well balancing any new weapons and cause more rage among the Gears Elite, as with thee Sawed-Off. Let's just assume that EPIC would make new weapons well and to the communities expectations for this poll. But please, do NOT go to CoD as an excuse not to accept some change and added diversity to the Gears world.
Please people, don't lead me to ranting over complaints involving Call of Duty. Of course me adding the footnote will probably end up causing more of it, I'll put it here anyway.
