    Default Koth

    Are you guys done playing KOTH? I say this because the amount of players in rank matches have seriously decreased Do you consider it fair when it comes to spawns??? How many times you've spawned with more than 1 player of the opposing team? How many times spawns have been crucial during the match? Don't you think that must be fixed instead of ......RING LOCATIONS? And why ring locations changed in the first place?

    Anyway I just posted my opinion about the game and it got deleted faster than the blink of an eye. The ones that were able to read it, forgive me about my grammar, I'm not from the US. But wow...I didn't think Epic would just delete it instead of at least addressing me, I think I deserve it after spending money in you and still playing the game after getting reset and handling a lot of the inconsistent things in the game.

    Cheers.

    Im sorry man, I like to play solo, and whenever I play ranked KOTH I run into players way more skilled than me, ran into a team of red and blue ranks once. I may just have bad luck when it comes to ranked. I also like the speed of the matches in quick match. If if makes you feel any better, I do play ranked execution/warzone though.

    I used to play QM KOTH all the time, but got fed up with the spawns like you say. As far as ranked matches go, I played QM simply because it's more fun

    I'm all about QM KOTH. It's typically where I get the most points, other than Horde.

    I play Quick Match as I usually play by myself. I do love KOTH, but I cant play it for too long because it seems like its flooded with Retro/SoS users lately, so I've been sticking to Get Gnashty and Alpha Exe.

    KOTH is my favourite game type, but I don't have a team, so I refuse to play Ranked.

    And yes, SkyeFire Hero is right, QM is flooded with Retros right now, I tend to play Alpha KOTH but there are not many people :-/

    Yeah, I like to play Alpha for that reason too.. I only wish I could see how many people were playing, not that big of a deal.. Just bothers me.

    Used to love playing ranked KOTH, until around January when I god fed up getting matched against sponge-bob players from south of the border.

    I've moved onto TDM since.

    I was a dedicated Annex player and played KOTH in the Beta, and in Gears 3 up til about a month ago. Why did I leave?

    a) It was a f*cking Lancer fest. Bring back Execution rules and I'll come back
    b) Poor teammate communication. Teammates would just wander around while I was the only one going for the ring and obviously losing in a 1v5

    I was awesome on KOTH, got many Quinn's with the Gnasher, but the sheer stale gameplay of Gears 3 drove me to TDM/Guardian

    Spawns is the biggest issue in this game type.
    Why the hell they use Horde + wingman spawns is beyond me esp for Tiny maps.
    Bulletmarsh ,Mercy, Blood Drive and Checkout.
    Got to be tactical and spawn block I guess esp on Checkout at first ring.
    What the hell is up with the Hotel outside rings too.
    Spawning one team in the lift and the other right near the bloody ring.
    Ranked is dead for every uk player not in a team.

    If you're from the UK (like me), you'll know that it is 100% impossible to find a Ranked KoTH game. In 6 months of trying, I have found 3 games...so Quick Match I'm afraid it is

    I find KOTH ranked matchmaking to be very slow, and sometimes "Unvailable"

    Haven't even play KOTH yet on Gears 3, haven't had the game long though.

    Annex is still better though, even though its not in this one.

    i play QM KOTH all the time, cuse ranked should be for stacked teams. shame QM has party of 5 at times which ruin the balance of the match

    spawns arent perfect but i dont care about that stuff, if you win your gun fights then spawns arent an issue. the only problem is sometimes opponent teams spawn ON the next ring location. that is just something that should never ever happen

    Exactly this...i tried last night with a party of 4 to find a ranked KOth match and after 5 minutes gave up. I don't know why Epic don't combine quick and ranked..the only thing i like about ranked is the ability to vote on a map and choose your character/skin before the match starts.

    I will whisper it quietly but the COD games seem to have a combination of the two where you can jump into matches but then after a match you can vote and choose weapons etc.
    I have the codes

    Thanks to Kracker Kid I now have the codes for Jungle Tai Skin

    IF all you people who say " i play quick because ranked takes too long to find a game" were to search for a ranked match, there would be no waiting time..
