    http://epicgames.com/community/2012/...swered-part-2/

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Note: I will start adding in links to threads that support a specific issue...please post any links and which question they go with
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Questions
    Gameplay / Mechanics:
    • Why has the sponging greatly increased since Fenix Rising came out?
    • Why does the countdown timer for inactivity restart when an AFK player is killed?
    --some feel this can be exploited
    • Is anything about the power of the retro-2-piece (stab 'n spray) being looked at? (many feel it is overpowered)
    • Why did you make it so that weapon executions don't count as kills with the weapon?
    • Are there any plans for changing nades? (ink stun, blast radius, plant delay time, ect)
    • Do you see a large difference in play-style/movement on remakes when compared to their original?
    --Blood Drive, Gridlock, Raven Down, Clocktower, Bulletmarsh, Jacinto (though it was changed more than others)
    • Do you see a large difference in play-style between in-house play and public play?
    --If so, do you feel that this may be the reason some game modes or weapons are less popular with some of the community?
    • Now that Guardian is making a return, are there still going to be changes to CTL?
    • Why was the ability to headshot someone with the OneShot removed?
    --People would like to see that and headshots with silverback rockets.
    • Will we ever see the Savage Grenadier in Horde? (apparently there is a stat listed for him, but he never shows up)
    • Why can we take control of bots in campaign mode but not in versus?

    Game Audio/Video/Controls Aesthetics:
    • Would you be willing to add a new control scheme?
    -- there are some changes to the control scheme that many people would like to see.
    • Is there a reason that online, characters don't say as many lines as they do locally?
    --previously, you stated that there were memory issues, so battle cries and other lines weren't said
    --now, there is a concern that reload lines (for example), which are being said, aren't pulling from the full pool of lines
    • Are there any chances of adding a filter similar to the Lucid one that makes the game not so bright and cheery?
    • Why does the 'Events/Calendar' mainly show marketing things? Why can't it tell us more useful info
    --Also, why does it keep showing 'Season Pass Available' when we already have it?
    • How do you decide what 'theme' a map will have? -Snowy, dark, summer, ect....
    • Will we ever find out more about the lambent's "critical stage"?
    • Why isn't Queen Myrrah in Wingman?
    -She is easy to tell apart from others

    Other:
    • Can you talk at all about the servers? (many people feel that they are not playing on them)
    --people want a symbol to show they are on servers…or show connection strength
    --which countries are/aren't on servers?
    --Now that there are so many gametypes, how is the servers space divided up between them?
    • Are there any changes planned to be made to any playlists?
    --# of respawns, spawn locations, score to win, ect.
    • An chance of having a 'Foreshadowing Weekend' even to help with the foreshadowing achievement?
    • Is there any way to see which events we have participated int?
    --can you add a page to the ribbons that will show event ribbons?
    • Is there any information on GoW3 in the MLG circuit?
    --Are you disappointed that it isn't involved in MLC currently? (do you plan on making changes to help it's chances)
    • Are there going to be any events for GoW1 (help for seriously)?
    • Are you at all surprised by how quickly some of the Cleavers on FoN were found? (some even before 3/27)

    Statistic Questions:
    Achievements:
    • How many people don't have the 'Lambency' Achievement and have completed an online match?
    • How many people have "re-uped" a 2nd time?
    • How many people have the 'Ivory' skin?
    Other:
    • Can we get an update on the number of people using each weapon and playing each mode (like in October)
    --How is Guardian doing as far as number of players?
    --Possibly an update for 'since the game came out' and one for 'in the past month'
    • What percentage of people have completed Campaign and RAAM's Shadow on Insane?
    • What are the most used CoG and Locust?
    • What are the least used CoG and Locust?

    • What are the least used Weapon Skins?
    • What is the least used Weapon Execution? (starting weapons? all weapons?)
    • What is the highest number of chainsaw kills by any 1 player (total)?
    • What is the average KD ratio for Bots? (Ranked?, Social?, Total?)
    • What has been the most popular event? What about least popular?
    • How popular was 'Stay Frosty' compared to other normal playlist
    --It got a lot of hate on the forums...but did this hate show in the number of people who played
    • How many people have been banned? (any category statistics? - boosting, modding, ect)
    • How many people have played GoW3 (any mode)?
    • How many people have played an online VS game?
    • How many Easter Eggs still haven't been found? (Campaign, Horde, Beast, and MP)
    --Is there one on Each MP map?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Non-Questions/Concerns
    Requests for Change:
    Changes:
    • Why isn't there Private Guardian? (is this something you would be willing to add?)
    • Can we get a better indicator showing where our teammates died (or make the indicater stay up for longer?
    --The the dead teammate emblem goes away really fast
    --GoW1 and 2 had the bubbles stay up for a while
    • Would you be willing to change the lvl 400 Wings?
    --They are too similar to lvl 100 (and they should look nicer than the others)
    --Many people also suggest a 5th re-up that can have better wings (white, black, Imulsion, ect)
    • Can the leader 'hand wave' be removed from Guardian
    --Possible solution: remove handwave, keep message, change button to remove message to 'Y'
    ----Shows people they are leader, gives smaller delay, and keeps people from spamming roll and missing the message
    --Possibly completely remove it in 'Ranked' play (they should know better)
    • Previously, Rod stated something along the lines of 'it is possible to get battle cries in MP turned back on'. Is there any update on this? Will anything be done?
    • On special event weekends (for horde) can we have 2 playlist options? (regular and event)
    -- Some people just don't want to play in the event
    • Will we ever get a 'Classic Stalemates' Option for private Warzone?
    • Will we ever get to keep the 'Classic Stalemates' option and 'Bleed-Out Time' option in private execution?
    • Can KotH spawning be changed so that a team doesn't spawn on the 'next' hill location?
    • Can the price of the Onyx Guard Bot be dropped (or have him improved)?
    -- He is extremely expensive once you take into account how much is needed to get up to him.
    -- He really isn't that good
    • Can we get a buff on the DBS in horde [and horde only]? (currently nobody uses it)
    • Why does the Execution gametype loading screen show Warzone rules? (can this be fixed)
    --When you go to play CTL, the loading screen before entering the match lists the rules for CTL
    --However, the loading screen before Execution shows the rules for Warzone
    • Can we get the 'Beta Exclusives' deleted off the 'unlocks' list (being we can't unlock them anymore)?
    Medals and Ribbons:
    --------we understand most of them, but there are that people still don't agree with you on some
    • Can the active reloads medal be changed to count in other modes?
    • Can the Explosives kills medal be changed so that mortar kills count towards it?
    • Can you change it so that smoke grenades detonating planted nades counts towards the Sapper Medal? Link Here
    --not sure if a bug or if intended...
    • Can the 'Aficionado' medal be changed to count normal campaign as well?
    • Can the 'Architect' medal be made to be obtainable more than once in a game?
    • Can ribbons that are currently only achievable with at least 2 people be made available in solo play?
    --previously, you said no...people wanted to know why.
    • Why isn't there a ribbon for winning a chainsaw duel?
    • Can the 'last man' and 'clutch' ribbons be changed achievable in Guardian?
    • Can reviving the leader in Guardian be changed to count towards saving the leader in CTL?
    • Can medals be removed from private? (people feel private takes away from the prestige of what Seriously3.0 should be)
    • Can medals' descriptions specify which game modes they're available in? (most say nothing about VS only)
    Additions:
    • Will there ever be a leaderboards/stats section for Guardian? (or will it always just be part of CTL)
    • Can a 'ready-up' feature be added to skip the countdown between waves of Horde?
    • Can a feature be added to custom lobbies to change all weapons to the same gun?
    --instead of changing each weapon on the map to sniper individually, have 1 option to change...and it changes all weapons
    ---sort of like 'set to default' but instead 'set to weapon' then choose the weapon
    • Can we get more options in private matches? (also, what about private Horde?)
    --Common thought on the forums is, "Why not make it so that you can scroll through options"
    • Can we get a none of the above option in Horde and Beast?
    • Can you please allow split-screeners to change loadout (by pressing 'A') between rounds and while dead?
    • Would you be willing to allow us to have 2 sets of default weapon skins? (1 for cog, 1 for locust)
    --in the next TU... we know it is UI, so it can't be done now
    • Can we get an option to turn off the 'Execution Rules' pop up?
    --when shooting a downed enemy by accident or something, the pop up takes up too much room
    • Can we have the 'No-HUD' option available in Campaign/Arcade?
    • Can we have the ability to play the weekend events in Private Matches while the event is going on?
    --Not for permanent use, but just for the duration of the event.
    • Can we get a random Weapon Skin or random Character Skin?
    --It is a UI issue, but would you be willing to do this in a future TU?
    • Can the ability to set up custom map rotation in private be implemented?
    • Can the ability to have 5 teams in Wingman be added for private matches (and private only)?

    Bugs/Glitches:
    Gameplay:
    • What is the status of Rank Resets?
    -- People are upset about the sticky being removed (issues forum)
    • Can we please get the issues with the zoom mechanics fixed? - Link
    • Is the 'game freezing' issue while playing Horde still being looked into?
    --Many people are having issues with Insane Horde freezing
    • Is the silverback leveling glitch being looked into?
    --If you have a silverback lvl 3 or higher, then play on an Xbox without the HCP...
    ---When you come back to your normal Xbox, your level will keep resetting
    • Is anything being looked at in terms of shooting through cover? (I'll link a thread if/when one is made)
    --Apparently there is a tree on sandbar that can be shot through, there is a wall at sniper spawn on coves that can be shot through
    • Is the issue of spawning as the wrong character being looked into (not a join-in-progress problem)
    -- Sometimes when in Private Horde, even if you start from the lobby, you will not get the character you chose
    Aesthetics:
    • Will there be a fix to allow players that have been reset access to the Flaming Retro Lancer
    --Anyone who has been reset (by the glitch) doesn't have access to it
    --Some people suggest to tie it to an achievement in the first week (so the stat doesn't get erased in a reset)
    • The Ivory skin isn't unlocking for some when the get the achievement...is this being looked at?
    • Can we get the glitched (0:00) times to be deleted off the Beast Leaderboards?
    • Can event scores for Beast and Horde be removed from the leaderboars? (some of these make is easier to obtain much higher scores)
    -'Beasts on the Cheap', custom beast characters, creepy crawly horde, april fool's horde, ect.
    • Will Anthony or Civi Anya's picture (top left) be fixed in elimination gametypes?
    --Currently he shows up as a generic COG
    --Currently she shows up as as regular Anya
    • Are the post game character images going to be fixed for Clayton Carmine?
    --currently he shows Marcus
    • In Wingman, there is no timer after matches and you are unable to quit until it loads the next map (can this be changed)
    --It is only for Wingman (all other modes work fine)

    Second Written Q/A - Link

    Q: Are you going to continue to fine tune or change weapons?
    A: We feel that the changes we have made were good for the majority of players. While we could make some changes if necessary, we also want players to feel that they have a consistent experience with the weapons. We feel the weapons in the game are in a good state and we probably won’t be making many more changes, if any. We will however continue to have events and special playlists where the weapons will definitely have changes! Give us your feedback so we know which events are your favorites.

    Q: What is the best way to find out if you do make changes?
    A: There have been times when we have made some changes behind the scenes for testing purposes. No announcement was made because we wanted to get an honest reaction from players. If any further changes are made, we will announce them on the Epic Forums, Facebook and Twitter unless we are performing a short test.

    Q: Why does every weapon except for the sniper have an effective active reload?
    A: In multiplayer, if you land an active reload with the Longshot, your damage will increase for body shots by 20%

    Q: It would be cool if an active sniper could go through multiple enemies.
    A: While we love this idea, this would be too much of a code change for the current game. Please keep providing us with feedback like this, as there is always a chance for something to be used in a future game or even an event playlist.

    First Written Q/A - Link
    Q: Can you earn the achievements and the weapon skins Ivory and Fl4k in private matches?
    A: There are some achievements and skins in Forces of Nature you will not be able to unlock because there is no private guardian. If you see someone with these achievements and skins, you will know they did not get them from playing against bots.

    Q: Why do some have issues with the consistency of the mantle kick?
    A: We have found this is most prevalent when there are internet connection issues. We are continuing to investigate and collect data.

    Q: Why can’t I unlock the “We Few, We Happy Few” achievement?
    A: If you are having trouble unlocking any achievements, please post in the Gears of War 3 Issues forum so we can check into it.

    Q: Why aren’t all of the medals available across all game modes?
    A: By design, each gametype has its own medals. If you see someone with the Onyx Lancer Skin you will know they received it by getting 6,000 kills in multiplayer. That is quite an achievement. Commitment is rewarded.

    Q: Are there any plans to change the way the medals work?
    A: There are no plans to change the way the medals are distributed.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Questions asked that have already been answered
    Can we have more Locust, Can we have _____ map, Can we have _____ skin, Can we have ______ Character?
    --These are not questions that would be answered. These are announcements they would make
    ---no point in cramming the list with these questions
    --More generalized versions are in the DLC part to see if there is any info at all though
    Are the ___ rumors true? or What about the leaked content that showed ______?
    --Discussing leaked content and rumors is against the forum rules
    ---I will not add it
    Can you please lower the requirements for 3000 games played of each gametype?
    --no
    --link here
    Why aren’t all of the medals available across all game modes (will this change)?
    --By design, each gametype has its own medals....commitment to each medal is rewarded
    --There are no plans to change the way the medals are distributed.
    Will Anthony Carmines lines be fixed?
    --No - Link
    ----also stated in one of Rod's streams

    --If there are more repeats that keep getting asked in the thread, I'll add them here

    They are still working on it...at least as of Wed (when I talked to the tester leading the investigation)
    If you have been reset, give any info you can to Troy McClure on the Issues forum

    Do you guys know that the mantle kick is incredibly inconsistent and terribly affected by lag? The inconsistencies are noticeable offline as well.

    This is in the OP:
    • Is anything being looked at as far as fixes for the Mantle Kick inconsistency (and when could we expect a fix)?

    I think we are going to leave it at that...
    ...any more, and you know what could happen

    Can we get detailed weapon information and statistics. Such as how much damage each weapon does per shot, if they are affected by range, and if they have a headshot multiplier?

    Why is the torque bow inconsistent on gears of war 3 and on gears of war 2 it is almost flawless.

    This was asked last time.
    I'll add it again (in a few min), but I'm also going to PM flak...to see if she has anything.

    It was asked last time.

    The torque has had different properties in each game:
    GoW1: projectile (slow)
    GoW2: instant shot
    GoW3: projectile (fast)

    Pretty much, in GoW3, you need to lead them a bit (at distance).
    The arrow acts as a projectile, but travels VERY fast.

    Can you ask why the Data reset thread isn't stickied or when it could be ? I know it's forum specific but lots of people would have avoided losing everything if it was.

    That would be more of a question for Flak (PM or wall)

    There is a sticky thread in the Issues Forum for them to try and solve it though.
    If you PM Troy, he may be able to add that to the OP of that thread.

    We had a post in the forums about combat chatter being reduced due to.memory. is it possible to do a dialogue booster pack if at the very least make the quotes more random as the same ones are constantly recycled.

    This was discussed last time.
    First of all, it is memory as in RAM...not HDD space
    RAM is the Random Access Memory. This is basically, what can be read/used at a time.

    Last time, they said that this was a setting that was turned off for Dedi-servers because it took up space.
    They said that it is something that they will look into toggling back on.

    RAM is limited, so a booster pack wont help.
    I'm guessing the game is running fairly close to max available RAM (within a reasonably factor of safety).
    So, them turning this back on, will probably result in something else being worse
    --not sure about this last part, but it seems that that would be the only reason for them not to have it on right now

    Hope that helped

    I know what RAM is and how it works but beside the point they never confirmed why actual lines are recycled , rod only touched on why the battle chants were not played on servers. I would just like a definitive yes or no on if anything can or is being done on either increasing the frequency if possible or at least making them more random.

    I'm going to try and make this a simple as possible because Rak seems to completely twist the question into utter confusion.

    1. Can more medals be made attainable in all game modes as 42 of 65 in Versus only isn't very balanced, there is no reason why I should have to get 25,000 active reloads and so on in Versus only.

    2. Will you make weapon kills count in ALL game modes or at minimum Horde and beast. If I can unlock execution animations in horde what is the difference in unlocking a weapon skin? A kill is a kill, an unlock is an unlock.

    3. Will you lower the asinine requirements on some of the medals as 18,000 matches isn't realistic without AFK boosting and playing the campaign 16 1/4 times isn't realistic and so on.

    4. Will you properly FIX the Vengeful Medal as it's not obtainable without boosting.

    5. Seriously 3.0 is not obtainable in it's current state without Seriously boosting it, is this really what you guys want?

    i've got two questions..

    1. why do Execution got Warzone tip and can it be fix? it's really throwing people off when they're looking for a quick Execution match.

    2. Can you please explain and fix this, which i call "random final decision".. it's when the last two players go at it and both kill each other, then somehow.. the game would give them the point or us (random decision); instead of giving both teams, the winning point. this is a slight problem definitely.. when it's a tied game.

    Ya, I'm getting sort of tired of repeating them...but I'm only repeating the 'important' ones
    I also added something at the top of the thread...hoping to get them to respond to those.

    1. It would be nice as a bump
    2. It will be easy so that I don't have to come back and find it.

    1. Not sure exactly what you mean....do you mean, 'why are warzone and execution in the same playlist?'
    2. Rod talked about the 'trading kills' last time...they can both kill eachother if they shoot within a very small interval...that said, one person still shoots first...so it isn't random

    I have two questions, which I sincerely hope are answered because I am dying to know the answer to the first one and the second one I think would be an awesome idea.

    Questions:
    1) Why is the Team Metal weapon skin 340 microsoft points instead of 240? It is a Static weapon skin and it is priced as if it were animated.
    2) Would it be possible to get a list of the Locust character dialogue (from Multiplayer) so we could finally understand what it is they are saying?
