Classic Horde Info and Feedback Thread
NOTE: Go HERE to vote for whether or not Classic Horde stays in its own playlist.
2nd NOTE: Go HERE to support the rest of the "Classical" DLC as this is just for Classic Horde info/feedback.
I am GLaD to see Classic Horde make a return. It is great, stops the Silverback campers and brings back the feeling of NOT relying on fortifications to back you up.
Can you (the thread viewer) think up of a name for a ribbon that we unlock for War Supporter for this event? If so comment and tell us.
What Classic Horde should now be after Jim B not quite getting the setting right:
No Command Posts
No Savage enemies like Savage Boomer/Drones
No Bonus waves
No Buy Backs
Ammo and weapon pick ups FREE
Wave intervals reduced to 5 - 10 seconds
Each set of 10 waves should have the same enemies that Gears 2 had from 1 - 10 etc. with the exception of no Sires.
Waves 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 - No bosses but masses of Bloodmounts (barely seen in regular (2.0) horde anyway)
Now that Classic horde has returned, all it needs is a few tweeks (My thoughts posted lower down in this post) and it should have its own playlist, after that you would see Normal Horde 2.0 as always then Classic Horde playlist.
If Classic horde doesn't get it own playlist then the ribbon for future return events that count towards War Supporter should be that you only get the ribbon for completing 50 waves IMO as it encourage team work and people not to quit.
For all you non Horde players, please don't just come on here and say "Oh, I don't play horde", this is for people that DO play Horde, so if you could just vote yes for which ever title sounds best to you, that would be great thanks.
Mine (Timmzy27) and the communities Classic Horde Tweeks that should be implemented if Classic Horde stays or makes a return in a future event:
Add that 5 - 10 second wave interval - It is very crucial and was in GoW 2's horde.
Ammo caps - Change the ammo caps and starting ammo for each weapon to match that of its Gears 2 counterpart.
Booms shields - Make it so they don't disappear after they have been redeployed at the start of the wave like Gears 2 so we can have more than 1 planted shield per player.
Less cyclops variants - IDK why some Cyclops' variants have boltoks, just put bolters in to replace them
Fix brumak boss spawns - Should JUST be Bloodmounts
No bunny heads - I know its for easter but its annoying
Copy Gears 2's wave structure exactly - Wouldn't be frowned upon, I asked for a CLASSIC variant of horde for a reason, to have more snipers and other enemies where need be etc.
Ammo Pick ups FREE - Jim could have just forgotten to remove the price but should be taken off next time.
Add social horde to both 2.0 and classic variants - I know Rod said about separating people into different pools is bad but MP has like 20 different playlists now, horde still only has 1.
Too much Wretches and not enough Butchers - Pretty self explanatory, 1.0 did have a lot more wretches but not that many and also not enough butchers. (See "Copy Gears 2's wave structure exactly").
You almost got it right Jim B. but next time this comes back or stays in its own playlist, the above tweeks need to be made.
EDIT: Forget about the "Maxing all horde fortifications" achievement announced in DLC 4, the hardcore Horde players will have maxed them out anyway just to get them out the way like me. Plus if it had it own playlist then you don't have t play it.
EDIT: TU4 added the "Forces of Nature" playlist which includes all the special/event playlist like Alpha, Boom snipes for example. This suggest to me that they can easily add the Classic Horde to well, Horde. Again, it will only be for one weekend but it wouldn't screw up anyone justing wanting to play regular GoW3 horde.
EDIT: Thanks to Jim B. at EPIC for making a Classic Horde variant.
