    Big Grin Classic Horde Info and Feedback Thread

    Classic Horde Info and Feedback Thread

    NOTE: Go HERE to vote for whether or not Classic Horde stays in its own playlist.

    2nd NOTE: Go HERE to support the rest of the "Classical" DLC as this is just for Classic Horde info/feedback.


    I am GLaD to see Classic Horde make a return. It is great, stops the Silverback campers and brings back the feeling of NOT relying on fortifications to back you up.

    Can you (the thread viewer) think up of a name for a ribbon that we unlock for War Supporter for this event? If so comment and tell us.

    What Classic Horde should now be after Jim B not quite getting the setting right:

    No Mutators
    No Command Posts
    No fortifications
    No lambent
    No Savage enemies like Savage Boomer/Drones
    No Bonus waves
    No Buy Backs
    Ammo and weapon pick ups FREE
    Wave intervals reduced to 5 - 10 seconds

    Each set of 10 waves should have the same enemies that Gears 2 had from 1 - 10 etc. with the exception of no Sires.

    Waves 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 - No bosses but masses of Bloodmounts (barely seen in regular (2.0) horde anyway)


    Now that Classic horde has returned, all it needs is a few tweeks (My thoughts posted lower down in this post) and it should have its own playlist, after that you would see Normal Horde 2.0 as always then Classic Horde playlist.
    If Classic horde doesn't get it own playlist then the ribbon for future return events that count towards War Supporter should be that you only get the ribbon for completing 50 waves IMO as it encourage team work and people not to quit.

    For all you non Horde players, please don't just come on here and say "Oh, I don't play horde", this is for people that DO play Horde, so if you could just vote yes for which ever title sounds best to you, that would be great thanks.


    Mine (Timmzy27) and the communities Classic Horde Tweeks that should be implemented if Classic Horde stays or makes a return in a future event:

    Add that 5 - 10 second wave interval - It is very crucial and was in GoW 2's horde.
    Ammo caps - Change the ammo caps and starting ammo for each weapon to match that of its Gears 2 counterpart.
    Booms shields - Make it so they don't disappear after they have been redeployed at the start of the wave like Gears 2 so we can have more than 1 planted shield per player.
    Less cyclops variants - IDK why some Cyclops' variants have boltoks, just put bolters in to replace them
    Fix brumak boss spawns - Should JUST be Bloodmounts
    No bunny heads - I know its for easter but its annoying
    Copy Gears 2's wave structure exactly - Wouldn't be frowned upon, I asked for a CLASSIC variant of horde for a reason, to have more snipers and other enemies where need be etc.
    Ammo Pick ups FREE - Jim could have just forgotten to remove the price but should be taken off next time.
    Add social horde to both 2.0 and classic variants - I know Rod said about separating people into different pools is bad but MP has like 20 different playlists now, horde still only has 1.
    Too much Wretches and not enough Butchers - Pretty self explanatory, 1.0 did have a lot more wretches but not that many and also not enough butchers. (See "Copy Gears 2's wave structure exactly").

    You almost got it right Jim B. but next time this comes back or stays in its own playlist, the above tweeks need to be made.

    EDIT: Forget about the "Maxing all horde fortifications" achievement announced in DLC 4, the hardcore Horde players will have maxed them out anyway just to get them out the way like me. Plus if it had it own playlist then you don't have t play it.

    EDIT: TU4 added the "Forces of Nature" playlist which includes all the special/event playlist like Alpha, Boom snipes for example. This suggest to me that they can easily add the Classic Horde to well, Horde. Again, it will only be for one weekend but it wouldn't screw up anyone justing wanting to play regular GoW3 horde.

    EDIT: Thanks to Jim B. at EPIC for making a Classic Horde variant.

    It would be fun for once, but I think Horde 2.0 is more fun.

    Thats why I asked for it to be a weekend event, However 2.0 feels a little too campy to me appose to Gears 2 where you had to move about or you would get killed.

    actually Gears 2 horde promotes more camping than horde 2.0, just grab a boomshield and get ready to camp. That does not work for horde 2.0

    I support this.

    Plus, all max ammo capacities should be adjusted in line with GOW2, namely the Boomshot (which is maximum of 6 shots in GOW3, but was 12 in GOW2).

    Not sure if they could change the Gorgon back to how it was in GOW2. I really miss that bad boy.
    A 'pub' is a public house - not a 'public match'. Respect that.

    What do you mean 'Get a life?' It's a respawning gametype - I have many lives.

    What do you mean 'Rifle-whore - Go back to COD?' If you love shotguns so much why don't you go and play Duck Hunt?

    I'm all for it. My only reservation would be the boom shields. They were such a significant part of Classic horde. As it is everything would just crawl over them.

    Yeah, but if you buy laser wire and camp in a room, it's easier then trying to remember to pick up and redeploy a boomshield in the same spot as that laser wire every wave because I did often forget sometimes.

    I didn't like Gears of War 2 Horde. I like having the time to get ready for the next round, I love the large diversity of enemies. The only thing it is missing is a RAAM Boss Spawn, like how if you get Lambent Zerker, you have Lambent enemies before it. So, I'd like a tier where the Theron Elite, Mauler Elite, and Standard Locust attack before RAAM's Boss Wave. But I vote no.
    Thank you to~ Whipped Mean, x6nat, Nobukara, Kenagain, and III LYCAN III all for codes!

    Well, this is more of a Blast from the Past kind of thing for those who liked Gears 2 horde and it play style appose to Horde 2.0. It won't replace Horde 2.0 but will be it own play list for one weekend and hopefully allow us to get a ribbon doing 50 waves.

    as long as it would stay in public and not filter into private then It would be ok, but then their would have to be a way to plant more shields as of right now, in 2.0 you can only plant one.

    To me it would just promote more rambo and bad habits players bring to public.

    It should stay in Public like all weekend events, I have edited in that we should be able to plant more shields in the OP. As for the people who go all Rambo, you get those no matter what survival mode you get whether it be Horde, Firefight or Zombies, you just have to put up with it.

    Not sure what Horde you were playing. I remember everyone grabbing Boom Shields and camping in one spot. Horde 2.0 at least has fortifications that make camping more interesting, rather than just hiding behind shields.

    Yeah, but horde 1.0 you HAVE to redeploy yor "fortifications", 2.0 all you have to do is repair them and tey stay as long as they last.

    Yep, just for a weekend. No mutators. Horde has only had 1 event so far that I can think of which was Ticker Tuesday (which was pants).

    Maybe they could do this on Mar 23rd - 25th just before DLC 4 hits and we get Guardian back, double dose of Gears 2 nostalgia.

    This idea sounds awesome. I like Horde 2.0, but in some ways it lacks that charm that
    the original Horde mode had...

    Take it back to the days of your only fortifications being Boomshields, lol.

    I would play, but I don't think Epic's control over the mechanics are that extensive.

    All that would really be necessary are:
    1. No fortifications
    2. No bosses
    3. Shorter intervals

    While not "true" Horde 1.0, it's certainly close enough to be enjoyable.
