You just don't understand how competitive play works, not saying I do but I have a basic understanding.

Plus as you say it was an exhibition match which showcased two sides of the coin IMO.

I thought that Epic tried to showcase the other side of the coin but were shot down a lot by the NSAN3Z camping. You guys say you want this game to stay on the circuit but I think it's going to end up just like the first 2 games..to much camping and lancering and not enough action thus taking the interest down from Gears3 on MLG. I think Epic would have been better off showcasing this match with Team Epic against Team Epic to sell the game better.

I didn't see that much camping to be honest and I know this was an exhibition match but it seemed fast paced, fun and entertaining. Gears 3 looks great.

Ya but seeing that the Epic team has been playing Gears 3 you'd think that they would have more experience.

The guys from Epic don't play competitively. The NSAN3Z's do. They play to win and have been playing competitively with each other for awhile. The Epic team has not. Don't forget, the Epic guys don't exactly have the time to sit and play Gears as much as someone who's a competitive gamer, does.

Eh, just a matter of them not going hard when testing with the QA team. As someone who works in QA, I can say they certainly have time to practice if they wanted to apply themselves in that way lol Just you'd be a bit of a douche if you're goin' hard at work against people who really couldn't care less.

I like how the NSAN3Z say they will all use HB in the interview, then end up with 2 Lancers and 2 Hb's.

Also, wallbouncing will beat Lancer and HB stopping power, but not a Retro.

xXQBirdXx
08-26-2011, 09:49 PM
I didn't get to watch the whole thing, but from what I saw, no one was using the Retro. My interpretation of this means that the gun is relatively useless, at least in competitive play. Anyone else notice this?

Agreed. The Nsanez have been around playing competitively since Gears 1 so they know what they're doing and they play a certain amount of hours per day to train themselves to get better whereas Epic won't. I think the team did very well against actual MLG pros!

Probably because it is useless at long range.

Also its probably going to be removed from competitive play anyway

I like the new HUD for execution and prob the same layout for warzone, now I don't need to hit back to see how many enemy's are still alive, I just look top left and can see both enemy and my team, really like that.

also, the new layout for trenches and Thrashball is great, really changes the 2 maps up and will prob fix any spawn issues.


oh, and last note, WOW is the lancer powerful xD it seems stronger than what I remember from beta, and thumbs up on the DBS news. :D seems like they may have fixed all the issues people were upset about with the DBNO problems.

Its both ends of the scale.

A noob can use the lancer.
but a good player will master it (team crossfires/suppression ect..)

I don't think they were going to try a new weapon instead of familiars like Lancer and HB. Retro will likely prove useful at a competitive level once they get to using it some.

Competitive Gaming isn't really an occupation most of them still work full time jobs too..

True, but these guys are still competitive gamers. Unlike the majority of us, when these guys play, they play at a much higher level of gaming. While these guys may work jobs as well, when it comes to gaming, they rack of more points than Team Epic.


They have been testing the game day in day out for the last year/

Testing is much more different than playing competitively. The gist is the same, but at the end of the day, Team Epic are testers. They have to play in order to find out what works and what doesn't. Where as Team NSAN3Z play to win.


Eh, just a matter of them not going hard when testing with the QA team. As someone who works in QA, I can say they certainly have time to practice if they wanted to apply themselves in that way lol Just you'd be a bit of a douche if you're goin' hard at work against people who really couldn't care less.

Hahaha, true. Team Epic was great in the sense that these guys aren't out there trying to win tournaments and the like. They test games and for what its worth, they played pretty well. Also, they would want to show off the game as much as possible, no?


But we expect team epic to be pure EPIC, after all its there game right
(Not saying there bad players)

Nah. Just because you make a game, doesn't mean you'll be good at it. Thats why most devs aren't gods at the games they make. Because they spend most of their time making the game rather than playing it.


Agreed. The Nsanez have been around playing competitively since Gears 1 so they know what they're doing and they play a certain amount of hours per day to train themselves to get better whereas Epic won't. I think the team did very well against actual MLG pros!

Exactly.

They play Gears to win, where as Epic had a team that at the end of the day, doesn't go try-hard. The NSAN3Z guys play to get better, where as Epic was playing to show off thier game and enjoy it some more.


Christ, thats a lot of replies. :p

That's because it was a ho-hum normal game :) Just a showmatch to show off the game - nothing was on the line and they played with default swaps on map. Everyone was just playing to have fun and show what Gears has to offer. One of the commentators was an Epic designer and another was a pro player.

That's because it was a ho-hum normal game :) Just a showmatch to show off the game - nothing was on the line and they played with default swaps on map. Everyone was just playing to have fun and show what Gears has to offer. One of the commentators was an Epic designer and another was a pro player.

I know that it was a show match to display the changes that would be in the final copy or at least very very close to that. Yes there was an EPIC commentator I watched it ;)

I really want to become apart of a MLG related Gears unit.

Ive got the time to attend tryouts and everything like that.

It's just I have no way of going about doing so. I hate messaging people because I hate getting ignored.

PLUS I dont feel like Gamebattles is the way to go about getting into a NICE clan. Gamebattles isn't run well in my opinion.

Fully understand that. I think once the game is out I'm going to make a push here for a teambuilding thread so people can establish teams with other forumers.

It's sounding more and more like there will be some different formats next year, potentially something which is more of a "League Night" type setup. Would be a lot easier to get new people involved that way I think, just having one set night a week teams need to be on.

I would fully support this.

I can attend Major in person events too. Im ready to become apart of the competitive scene.

So many loop holes are needed now a days to even get into a nice basic clan that its astonishing. Almost impossible to achieve sometimes, unless you know the person irl and they pull strings.

Almost like finding a job in todays society. Strange--

I really dont feel like being a free agent but you gotta start somewhere and Im willing to work my way up the ladder. Not to sound like Im high on my horse or anything, but I feel like I have the potential to be a great asset?

As Im sure a lot of others feel the same way.

A team gathering topic would be ideal during release.

Because honestly Im tired of playing by myself when no ones on.

I always want to fill in a team slot.

Realistically, anyone who can fit a consistent practice schedule is a huge asset. That's the biggest barrier to competitive play, just getting a group that all plays at teh same times regularly.

True, meaning realistically it would be better to always find people on the same coast and try to work around the same time zones.

THEN you the process of practicing and seeing if everyone gel's ensues.

A team who knows each others personalities is key in my opinion.

Sorry, It's not a glitch, that doesn't mean it doesn't need fixing. The Shotgun is overpowered enough as it is, when the exploitative little bastards can wallbounce around stopping power, all skill involved with using it goes out the window. Thanks EPIC, way to **** up another game for the people who play it like a real player, and give the n00bs an easier time.

You are kidding me right? What is a "real player" anyway? One who sits and hides in one spot the entire time with a lancer hoping people will push them? Like honestly.

Oh C'mon! Rifle players are real players and gnasher rushers aren't?

Gnasher rushing has been major part of the game since Gears 1. Why should they suddenly change that?

And Gears 3 gives many upgrades to rifleplayers anyway. Rifles are lot stronger now.

Yeah, well what exactly is wrong with it? The Gnasher has always been a huge part of gears, and a good player will counter with whatever they have. And dedicated servers will fix the connection issues.

Just because something's always been apart of a game doesn't make it bad either. The reason you can wallbounce through stopping power is for balancing reasons.

Balancing my arse, the rerason you can do that is so that those too retarded to flank can be noobs just like the smart ones who are using some skill.

5 players
usually 3-4 chokepoints/map

Do the math. Automatically assuming a "flank" would be the "retarded" move.

Or maybe you forgot the part where this is a cover shooter. Cover doesn't just exist for people to plop down on and sit there for as long as possible. Cover exists to help players advance from one section of the map to another.

A player sitting on one piece of cover over the course of a round is definitely making a much more "retarded" use of cover than someone who uses it to advance from one section of the map to another.

Why do people continuously refer to themselves as either "gnasher user" or "rifle user"...i dont understand that state of mind, you're suppose to use what ever weapon gives you the advantage based on how close you are to the enemy. Who tries to lancer someone down at pointblank range? Who would try to down some one with a shotty from cross map (with the exception of the TU6 shotty)?.

It's a percentages type of thing. Saying that one is a Lancer user means that they keep their distance and try to maximize the potential usefulness of their Lancer. That's not saying that they don't use their shotgun when they need to, it's just saying that they would prefer not to use it as much as a Lancer.

I'm going to tell you what I've told everyone that's a Free Agent. Simply team with your friends, it the easiest way to have chemistry & keep fighting to a minimum.

Then have atleast one player that will take over the leader position for calling out initial strats & learn the game on a team level together.

Real players wallbounce kiddo. Majority of decent players wallbounce. I think you rage about it because you can't pull it off. Rifles can put wallbouncers down easily. Trust me. If you're a good wallbouncer, you can counter a good wallbouncer (even with a rifle). I've done it plenty of times in the beta with the HAMMY. THE HAMMY... NOT THE RETRO, THE HAMMY. My advice. Adapt. Learn to wallbounce decently, then learning how to counter it will come naturally. And btw, this isn't the Halo forums. So be nice...

Look at my signature dude, I'm with you. I hate wallbouncing. If hating people that manipulate the games core mechanics is wrong, I don't want to be right. I don't need to wallbounce at all. I blast away every wallbouncer that comes to me, whether I down them with my hammerburst or just shotgun them, either way I don't let them touch me.

You type of people are the main reason I avoid this forum altogether... It's pretty clear for everyone to see that if Epic followed your ideas of what this game would be like, it would be constantly in cover, hard-aiming with your Lancer... You have 300 more kills with Lancer than you do the Gnasher... How is your idea even feasible? Slows down the game, makes it boring, if wallbouncing didn't exist Lancers would be stupid at anything but close range. You would just have people like you all over the place waiting at choke points... Just learn to aim, it's not hard to shoot them as they move... Lol... Stopping power works just fine if you can aim, they can hardly rush forward with it, duh.

I also laughed pretty hard at the "real player" statement, anyone who doesn't use the game to it's full potential, using what you've been given to win, is either an idiot or doesn't know how to, therefore receiving the title of "noob". You can decide which you are.

Why? He's right about everything. Wallbouncing is easy and it can be just as easy to stop a player doing it. It IS a game mechanic. Not a manipulation. Epic themselves have stated that it's intentional and separates the players. You have to understand that this is Gears of War, and it has a different style than other games. Mid-Long range weapons are just as good now if not better at certain situations. It's all balanced. You just have to adapt to survive or get left behind. Honestly, you are just as right about wallbouncing being "noob" as everyone else is about saying that people who don't do it are. Everyone has a different preference. Stop trying to praise of how the game should play, and just play it. If you say you're as good as you are, then there is no reason to complain.


Anyway, the MLG Raileigh Event was pretty exciting. Wish they had more matches to showcase. Team Epic was getting heated! Definitely a great way to showcase Gears 3 to the MLG community.
