    Default What are your views on more 'Re-Ups'?

    If there is a standard Multiplayer mode, do you think they will introduce higher ranks or more re-ups?

    Hopefully there won't be a ranking system.

    If there is, hopefully nothing as stale as 're-upping'.

    I believe I saw a screen shot with ranks.

    Probably. It helps tie things with unlocks as there are more 'events' to play with on that front.

    I hope not though. I'm not actually a fan of the confused and cluttered multicoloured thing we've got on the scoreboard. I saw an early Gears 3 gameplay, and the all-white levels on the scoreboard looked fresher than....ummm....well, it looked fresh.

    I would like it to return but I also liked how it was on Gears 1 as well.

    If the levelling system does return, I would like more unlocks as you progress up the levels.

    Is the ranking system honestly going to be the same as Gears 3 -_-?

    The menu can just be a placeholder for the limited demo they had at E3. Howver it is a smooth and clear menu design, so it will probably stay. I expect ranking to return, and it to be xp based. AS for re-upping in GOWJ, it will probably return.

    I hope the 'ranking-up' is more exp demanding.

    No re-ups, use a system similar to that of Gears 2 and don't make it so easy to reach level 100. Got my first wings within a month which was before re-ups were introduced.

    Yeah, it would encourage more team work because most of the lonewolfs now only seem to care about their rank, weapon kills, k/d etc..

    I disagree. In Gears 2 it was easy to walk away from the ranking system due to the perceived view of making little or no progress to the next rank. Man, I remember when I was in the 90's, I was there for an eternity, and actually I was stuck in those 10 ranks for about a year until the final XP X's drive last August. I don't care if they do 500 ranks or 5 re-up's or whatever, as long as each time you face an new hill in the ranking system to climb, you are not looking at a hill the size of Mt. Everest.

    Also can they fix it so if you do re-up you have to unlock all characters (and weapon skins?) again, so say you get (insert character here) at lvl 23, when you re-up you have to get to 23 to unlock them again. Also, level unlockable weapon skins

    As many people it seems re-uped, I do believe that Rod said in a live stream a while back, he said like on 3% of the community has re-uped. I love the re-up system, but because of it being such a minimal group of people, it would not surprise me if they do not include a re-up system.

    EDIT: I just found the stream and as of March 21st, only 1.44% of the Gears community have re-uped at least once

    They need to do GoW2 style TrueSkill ranking. They need better coding behind TrueSkill and they need around 100 different ranks.

    Character unlocks would be sweet. Not just for level 2,3,4,5,6 etc...

    I was there when she took her final breath. She pulled me in close and she said, "You're the one." She said, "They chose you, long before you were ever in existence." And I understood what she meant. Her touch could save the world but her kiss burns it to the ground. I love you, Sister Abigail.

    How do people even find these threads? I imagine they've been well buried by now.

    Still, if that's what people wanna do, then it's entirely up to them. Does feel kinda weird though to see last years threads all over again. Lol, it's like a time warp or something.
