    Default Gamebattles

    Anybody here ever used Gamebattles before? Is it worth checking out?

    I am wanting to try it out with some of my buddies and i was wondering what some of your experiences have been with it..

    Mainly i am just wondering if the matchmaking typically matches you up with people around your same skill level.

    Please just list what your overall experiences have been with it before and is it worth me and my buddies time.

    EDIT: Anyone used BeyondGaming.com before??

    I have an account, but I have no idea how to find teams of people to play against.

    you make a clan, who you play is random. the higher your opponents rank + if you beat them = more points gained.

    personally my experiences with it aren't too positive. a lot of the matches end up being disputed, so you better have a capture card and know how to upload videos etc. most of the times teams will argue about who has host bla bla, its like a sport without a ref...

    not to mention every cheap aspect of the game is apparent. it will be a complete rifle fest.

    I tried in Gears 1 and 2 for a little bit. The experience was not fun at all. People take it seriously like money is on the line or they will get sponsored, the site may be good to find scrims but the Team Ladders aren't very fun, at least for me. I understand it's more competitive but it's just not for me, i have more fun being a pub star

    I have friends that have done this and have not had great results. What GOLEAFSGO said, I have also heard a lot, argument of who actually won. I have not heard good things at all.

    I've been staff on GB iff and on for the last 3 years as a forum mod, Referee and Admin.

    My advice: unless you're heavily interested in the competitive scene don't use it.

    In order to guarantee wins, you have to have a capture card for proof, because people will dispute matches they lose just to be an ass, or because they don't want to lose their perfect record. Some teams will do anything, and I mean ANYTHING to get the win, even if it means IP Flooding or Lag Switching. It's honestly more of a headache than it's worth, which is why I stopped playing and have just been a Ranked "tryhard" with my friends.

    Gamebattles: Where 99% of the top teams use a host with a GODLY Gnasher/Lancer who sponges like crazy, or they cheat.

    As for Beyond Gaming, I've never used them. But there's always the possibility of assholes there as well.

    FraggedNation's alright, I've had a few matches on there and there's generally a lot of respect (except for the occasional sh*t talking before a match lol)

    I think GCON supports teams looking to scrim as well, not sure on the etiquette of players though same for Beyondgaming.

    I have an account, I don't have a team though.


    As a team player I'm good, but I can't hold my own in the singles bracket. I'm pretty straight with the gnasher too.

    I would also like to know about beyond gaming, I am definately not getting back into GB, because that website has become synonymous with "tryhard".

    I did gamebattles waaaayyy back when for Super smash bros brawl lol.. people lagged it up and disputed matches then, and a few months ago i wanted to give Gears 3 a shot and my FIRST match, i beat a guy on his own host 2-1, and he was ranked 56th in the singles ladder. He disputed it, and because it was my first match i guess they beleived his story over mine. You can do GB all you like, but NOT UNLESS you have a capture or video card thingy like eevryone is saying. WHen they try and dispute you, you can whip out the proof and bam you get a win and hopefully they get in trouble. If you dont have anything to record the proof of the score then its not worth the headache.

    Played one GB game. The guys cheated. They went against their own rules and counted the game as a win. It's really pathetic. Don't do it.

    Honestly the best thing you can do is find a really good team by playing matches and ask to play against them. I played against a pretty good team the other day (with a team of randoms of course) and got my butt handed to me. It was fun going up against people who were really good at the game though.

    Hey I feel that gamebattles is kinda easy its because I played it for awhile... You don't need a cap but some sort of way just to get the scores just in case (like a phone) But people havn't really been disputing lately. If u want check out my youtube for gamebattles content: Youtube.com/itenshunz

    I usd GB before and i didnt like it. Tbh i thought a lot of the teams were jusy assholes and didnt care how they got the W. I use WGL with the clan im in. The season hasnt started yet but every scrim we've had, the teams seem to be nice guys and i find it a lot more fun than GB. Never used Beyond Gaming tho

    I was excited about GameBattles when I first heard about it but then I saw/read about how it works and I don't think it's right for me.
