    Default Upset: Multiplayer bots

    Multiplayer with bots, that's not fun anymore
    This is 360, there's a large community and matchmaking as well, why bots?

    Because a lot of people enjoy a more casual experience rather than being "thrown to the wolves" so to speak on xbox live. It also gives players a way to learn new maps and strategies before jumping online to test them out. In no way does the addition of this feature diminish the community or matchmaking.

    Isn't the bpts also used if ppl quit, like alot do. And the bots would take their place til another joins? So it would solve 5v2 and such. I thought i read that somewhere.

    No - currently bots are only available as part of custom matches. We don't want them to influence ranked match play.

    I think FuFu pretty much covered it. But understand some people are not as quick learning as others when it comes to shooters. So the addition of bots is well welcomed by many. Also, for more of us hardcore players, it gives us a chance to try out strategies on the spot without trying to find a game.

    I just did sniper training, if you can head shot those things you can snipe anyone. Never seen a freaking pistol hit you at 4 miles.

    Yeah all the various modes are available in custom matches with bots. You can setup solo games with bots on your team, or buddy up with friends to play humans vs bots, etc etc.

    Thanks for covering that up fufu. On my part I do believe the bots will seriously increase the developer community on PC. So the cool Xbox 360 pr0 kids can keep things quiet in their little ranked matches now that things have been cleared up.

    Alright, i wondered about that

    i thought having bots in ranked could help solve the quitting problem, but i see where you're coming from

    besides having bots in that Horde mode should be awesome

    Bots are an excellent addition. I'm so glad they made it into the game and would like to thank Epic for deciding to include them in Gears of War 2 since most devs don't bother.

    I've been waiting for bots for a while now. Here is a question, I apologize if it has already been asked and I missed it. Will the bots auto fill the teams if someone drops out? (This is assuming it is not a ranked match, which does not allow bots.)
    Q: How will the new Carmine die this time?

    Shame on me for not playing UT since UT1. But I assume they are harder than back then. Back in the day it was not uncommon for someone to take on two 'Godlike' bots in CTF solo and win. Of course back then the Bots were not good at objectives just killing. I would assume they would be about even with Insane Mode enemies. Hopefully better than that to get closer to having another person on your team.

    I wouldn't rely on UT's bot to define the quality of the AI in GoW2 since the 2 games are entirely different. The bot architecture is really different to program.

    Geez, Cliff is a walking talking juggernaught! Doesn't he ever sleep? What do you guys FEED him?!?!

    XD jk, I feel kind of sorry for poor Cliff. The guy's probably not gonna be able to so much as blink for another 3 or 4 days with all this E3 business and whatnot. Crap, being the Lead Designer for a game as massive as Gears 2 would probably make my brain shrivel into a tiny peanut husk.
