theres alot of games i could of won but the ppl on my team were in party chat. then at the end the game they come and say "we could have won" if they werent in party chat we could have won if they would have communincatided with me. GOW is a team based game. if your in ur in party chat with your friends in a dirferent game i have no problem with that. but if u have a mic with a dude thats trying to win just as much as u are and u see his mic goin off after the round, get out of party chat and talk to him and help. other wise die to these ppl that are not even good. communication is key to winning in gears of war + instinct like gears 1. the feeling of real life instinct in doing what u have to do to win has been lost because of party chat. its unfair, specially when u know u could take out the rest of the ppl alive. when therers party chat they know your every move making it unbalaneced. cuz ppl that cant talk are talkin to the teammates that are still alive. there for its cheating. gears of war 1 had no party chat which mad every move off instinct which made the game have a feel that no other game has had in the history off gaming. now you have party chat and its unfair to the good players that "need" the draw or the win to survive for the teams sake or the win. thats why i say take it out and make gears of war go back to the basics of instinct like it would be in real warfare. wether they take it out or not its coo. as long as i know either or and smash, its coo. but in my opinion it should go back to the basics whcih is insticnts. i dont care if i mispelled anything...... im drunk and party chat is for scrubs..
