    Exclamation petition for ranked matchmaking

    first of all, everybody is doing it anyway, including myself, i would simply like it to be easier. anywho, i really don't see what is all that horrible about being able to invite players into a ranked match waiting to begin. IMO, the only things that should be removed from ranked host options is weapon swapping, friendly fire, and the ability to boot anyone who joins.

    to me, 4 guys saying "we will take on any other 4 guys, anytime, anywhere" is the essence of gears of war online, and should be utilized in ranked matches as well as player matches.

    this game was founded on 3 principles i thought. cover, flanking, and teamwork. i may not be the best player or anything, but give me 3 buds who always know EXACTLY what my intentions are, and who i KNOW wont quit on me, and we will collectively bring the pain.

    plus, it will reduce quitters, and promote rivalries.... which can only make the game better, and more fun.

    Epic has said that they would love to implement a matchmaking system but it is a little to late now. And FYI we has discussed this to death for the past 6 - 7 months.

    No, but if they haven't addressed this issue after 3 patches and 8 months, then do you really think that they will finally do something about it? It ain't gonna happen.

    No it is more of "why added it it now?" If you are a developer you don't want to go back tracking on a game that has been out for almost a year. It really a waste in valueable time and resource, also man power. I would rather they spend time working on it for the next game and just clean up this one with all the glitches.

    Yes, also as Mark Rein once said EPIC needs the manpower to put it in the game. Had they had more the matchmaking thing would have been better. Im pretty sure EPIC will make GoW2 a much better multiplayer experience then the first one.

    to tell the truth, It would be nice to be able to do it but either way I have yet to play a rank match with any of my friends that I usually do my thing with on player match. But a lot of people always complain so I'll help out just to see how it turns out.

    Regardless of how much i agree that it should be included seeing as how this game is based on teamwork, it not likely to happen.Like USRanger John said GoW2 will more than likely have an extremely better multiplayer,considering the multiplayer for GoW1 was a last minute addition & almost wasn't added at all.
