I've recently been looking into the gears 3 online more and think that there should be more playlists then just plain old :
Capture The Leader -
King Of The Hill -
Team Deathmatch -
I believe that If the player wants to have fun online and play crazy gametypes without making a custom match and inviting friends, he should be able to do so.
Just like with Halo and COD, halo has Rumble Pit & Score Attack and Black Ops had sticks and stones, one In the chamber, and all that other stuff.
Although, I'm not on a position to tell Epic how to make their own game, I think some arrangements could be necessary.
I mean, If you look back In the past, If you guys played Halo 3
(Don't deny not ever playing Halo 3 because everyone played Halo 3 at least once)
What did everyone do when they got bored of multiplayer and campaign? they either forged a map or they played custom games.
Majority of those people who played custom games probably either played :
Fat Kid -
Cops And Robbers -
Ghost Busters -
Or any other silly childish game that was extremely fun.
My Point Is, what are people going to do on gears 3 when they unlocked all the achievements, beat the campaign, got lvl 100 In multiplayer, and had a little to much fun In horde 2.0 and beast mode?
They most certainly aren't going to sit there and stare at the menu screen..
That's why Epic needs to put different kinds of playlists In the multiplayer section that are childishly fun, and exciting In a way.
Just like the playlist that was In the Gears 3 Beta, Torque Bow Tag.
There needs to be more playlists and when I say that, I don't mean, ( DO IT EVERY WEEKEND ).
I even came up with my own playlist that would be filled with nothing but intense, crazy, fun. That playlist Is called..
Shankathon : Everyone gets a retro lancer and the only way to kill someone Is to retro charge them..
But you see, the list doesn't just stop there, there can be so many more It's insane.
I seen one posted by someone, I forgot who It was but he said there could be a playlist called...
Headhunter : Everyone gets a sniper and the only way to win Is to snipe your enemys.
Heres some more Ideas that I came up with.
Cleaver Fest : Everyone spawns with a cleaver, the only way to kill someone Is to cut them up.
Massacre : Everyone gets a lancer, the only way to win Is to chainsaw your enemies.
Commando : Everyone spawns In silverbacks
I've gotten more creative then that though, how about these? that I bet nowone even thought of?
Lone Wolf : Simply put, It's a free for all.
Juggernaut : 9 against 1.. the juggernaut can deal out way more damage then the other players and he can also take way more damage then other players, on the other hand, the other players are more quick.
Assault : Normal 5 on 5, but for thirty seconds, one teams weapons become unusable and can not melee giving the other team the upper hand. After the thirty seconds Is over with, the same go's for the other team.
Nemesis : Simply put, It's a 1v1.
So what do you guys think?
