Played gears 2 about 2 days ago. Im sure many of you are thinking "why in the hell were you playing that crap?" Honestly, after getting killed around a corner in gears 3 with a sawed off, I felt like going back to play gears 2 and figure out what is it that kept me playing that laggy/glitchy game? Why is it that even though gears 3 is the better overall around game, i want to stop playing it already?

Right away, i was reminded of why gears 2 was very fun and not frustrating to play: The lack of kill stealing.

I was playing in jacinto, and downed the opposing player with a gnasher shot to the back from 15 ft or more(thats gears 2 for you btw :D ) All four of my team mates did not 'hump' the guy and i was even more surprised when they stood there and waited for me to walk 15 or more ft to execute the player i downed, as i did this, they began to hump/t-bag the guy.

I dont want to sound like im complaining, but rather amazed at the amount of respect 'randoms' gave you in gears 2 when you earned a kill. Sure, its a team game, but lets be honest. Those team mates that whip out a pistol to take your kills in gears 3 even when you can easily get your kill are douche bags.

I am aware that gears 3 may never be like this but i thought i'd share with you guys.


MAKING A COMMITMENT: : i've learned over the years if you want something done, you must do it yourself. I am committing to NEVER-EVER taking any kills unless the person that has scored a down is unable to secure it. Im aware that people will go around and take my kill, but i'm going to try and be the bigger individual. I wont get frustrated and i wont go out for revenge on their downs unless they let me take it. It may sound dumb, but if i can get everyone to follow this, it will make the game better.


oh and bring back the dead room!!!!!!!:p

If kill stealing is your only issue that stops you having fun on GOW 3....then it's you who has the problem, not Epic. K/D ratio means nothing, so just focus on getting points and helping your team!

no not the only issue. Could be the fact that mantle kick sucks ass, hit detection and other stuff. Or, maybe i played gears so much that i burned myself out on it. One thing is for sure though, maybe when i got on gears 2 it gave me a sense of nostalgia. IDK...

When Gears 1 first came out, I remember a lot of kill stealing and same goes with Gears 2. The influx of randoms always cause this and when the casual players die down the respect starts to come back around as only old and new vets remain.

Gears 3 is still very young, especially compared to Gears 1 and 2, but it also has a different audience now too. The gaming industry has gone nowhere but up so there are a lot of new people getting into these games, and it's a fact that Gears 3 tried to cater to all these new people. So, they're still playing and there are a lot of them too... We just have to keep being patient and waiting until they leave.

Also, I've noticed that it hasn't been that bad lately. I only had one match last night where it was evident that my kills were being taken as I was MVP with the most downs but fewest kills.

I don't steal kills either.

The kill stealing has been ever present in gears... in Gears 2 me and my mates call the kill stealers "scavengers".... xD

Now probably few people play Gears 2... and probably those are "pros", really "lovers" of the game, not all the n00b kids playing Gears 3.

Yeah... Gears 2 brings me memories of nights full of fun with a lot of friends; now much of them has gone from XBL or get connected few times... even I doesn't play since last monday.

God, you're annoying. Any Thread mentioning the word Sawn off and you're there. Move.

On another note, i agree so much OP i've had only 2 games on Gears 3, which the team respected my down and let me finish my kill, both of them were clans though :P i played Gears 2 a while ago, everyone will go out of there way to not take the kill which is nice, Gears 3 is a better game but Gears 2 has better people :P

People always yell about stealing kills and most ppl I meet are surprised by my thinking. If I am in any DM or KOTH it's about the team victory because in all the madness it is very easy for a downed player to be revived. Ppl also never stop complaining regardless of your weapon of choice that you are a SOS noob or a lancer whore. Fact is that all the weapons are part of the game so you can adapt to the players and their choice of wpns or you will always be raped. As far as the humping, I am not a big fan of that. That's just poor sportsmenship.

I think you should just play how you like to play, like you said. I try not to steal kills, and I try to not do anything cheap, but sometimes sxxt happens. When you're playing with randoms, it comes with the territory. I almost expect people to steal my kills, not revive me when I'm right next to them, etc. People will play cheap, people will complaign, but I'm happy with the fact that I play legit, whether or not others do. Any stats/ranks/medals/ribbons I have are earned, fair and square. They may not be as impessive as some, but they're a true showing of what I can/can't do.

Maaaaaz

It's kind of a double edged sword.
Whilst it's rare for people to take your kills, the moment you kill anyone on that game "OMG YOU'RE HOST, HACKED, SCRUB, GOML" and stuff. It's so damn competitive, and once you get downed, you're humped by everyone, even when they 5v1 you and 2piece rofl.

Epic said they don't care about kill stealing because it's about winning the game as a team - a team game.
So what if you always got the kill if you got the down or most points? And if someone kills them when you got the down/most points they get an assist and a few more points? That would still encourage people to play as a team and you get the kills that you deserve.
Some clans also have a K/D requirement for joining their clan. What if you missed your chance of joining the clan because so many people took your kills? I'm sure that some people get their kills stolen ALL the time.

Don't let me get started about medals. Each kill that you get robbed means you will have to get another kill to make up for it. :mad:

The Gears 2 players were much more respectable. :)

I've noticed a lot of kill stealing, but 70% of it is due to everyone shooting same guy and bullet sponges. Now ther have been some blatant steals but that's because there are medals tied to kills.

They didn't steal simply because they are what's left of the people who played the game all the time, they know the rules of not stealing, now noobs all steal. Soon if the casuals get bored and leave we will have some mercy towards each others kills.
