    @GearsofWar The ones that works - won't lag, drops fps, stutter - not like the Gears of War Ultimate Edition for Windows 10 Store.

  • justicar Glenn White (@justicar) reported

    @PezRadar (The problem is that you're not in Vegas right now.)

  • Xbox_SUPERFAN scott wilson (@Xbox_SUPERFAN) reported

    @Eyeganism @E3 @Xbox @GearsofWar Yeah! You know I have no problem with someone waiting in line, getting exclusive items, and flipping them for profit. That's the only way I'm able to get things at times. This freaking guy obviously must have access to these items before hand though. And that isn't right.

  • OrdinaryMooseTV GU OrdinaryMooseTTV (@OrdinaryMooseTV) reported

    @GearsofWar no disrespect, buh can y'all fuckas come out with Gears 5 faster 😭😭 Gears 4 is broken on PC

  • Subject_Madderz Ernie Spence Jr. (@Subject_Madderz) reported

    Out of respect for those that run events, does @EsportsGears, @GearsofWar and @MLG have season 1 for Gears 5 locations and dates ready to be released. Do not want plan or have issues with Gears of Pro Circuit. So if someone could DM me. That would be great! Thanks. #GearsFam

  • Greenhxwk Gary | Greenhawk (@Greenhxwk) reported

    Love i have to suffer from rank loss because of incapable randoms. Could you at least rank me up for winning games. Your algorithm is broken and needs intensive rework. It's like I'm gambling at a casino. @GearsofWar

  • BxRock1 BxRock (@BxRock1) reported

    @GearsofWar I wish I could actually finish gears 4 game freezes in same part everytime on windows store. Have gtx2080ti and 9900k processor so not a hardware issue. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling still freezes in same place. Maybe once u fix glitches in 4 on pc I'll try out 5.

  • NexusIronhide BigDieselNasty (@NexusIronhide) reported

    @InTheMorning69 @OGsie247 @Trivarium @GiovanPeck_ @gavinalessandro @wasntJake @danasissons @CoalitionGears Extent that the router can handle no more and finally gives up . It's so smart but also so illegal that the department of Justice themselves have put a bulletin out against DDOs ers.

  • DrEricoo Ericoo (@DrEricoo) reported

    My account was recently recovered from some hackers and Microsoft transferred my account to another email. Now that I have my account I tried logging in on the Official Gears of War site but it just says error. I contacted Xbox help and told me to contact you. @CoalitionGears

  • NexusIronhide BigDieselNasty (@NexusIronhide) reported

  • Gears3is4me Anthony Peluso (@Gears3is4me) reported

    @CoalitionGears I've got an idea to make Gears 5 something to make everyone happy. Fix solo queues, I'm tired of going against stacked teams when I've got no team to back me up, it's bullshit.

  • DonaldSandy808 oAoDemiGod (@DonaldSandy808) reported

    @morpig666 @CoalitionGears Hahah #Gears4Broken #Trasholition they have no idea how to fix there game.. I'm 100% this is the only non game they have made or even the only game.. and they broke it first updated. Like every update it gets worse the "judgment" and that says alot!!

  • morpig666 Morpig (@morpig666) reported

    @CoalitionGears @DonaldSandy808 They can't even fix the PC issue

  • DonaldSandy808 oAoDemiGod (@DonaldSandy808) reported

    @CoalitionGears How when I've played the game out fully.. please direct message me cause I wanna find out why this bs happening.. like my clan member is like 5 feet away and plays with me.. and he seen this broken stuff happen

  • DonaldSandy808 oAoDemiGod (@DonaldSandy808) reported

    @CoalitionGears Plus I've played 4 matches I'll show you guys your game is broken!!! I'll send you guys proof if needed.. once this negative xp goes away i promise I'll get suspended. This has happen alot .. I've tried to get this fixed.. and still happening

  • StevieSplash11 $teve C. (@StevieSplash11) reported

    @GearsofWar need to fix your suspensions. Got invited to a match so I went. Turns out it was guardian and I hate that more so I left while still in lobby. Now I’m “suspended” for 30 minute. This is ******* GAYYYYYY!!! **** u

  • TranceStoned ._. #TeamFollowBack ._. (@TranceStoned) reported

    @GearsofWar Fix the achievements please.

  • NexusIronhide BigDieselNasty (@NexusIronhide) reported

    @CoalitionGears @OGsie247 @Trivarium @GiovanPeck_ @gavinalessandro @wasntJake @danasissons So the night they Ddos me , my business lost $3million. My class action law suit is going to state either Microsoft pays it back or they better give me the physical addresses of these kids.discplining them the biker way is better than getting my money back

  • R17Gaming Doesn't Matter (@R17Gaming) reported

    @GearsofWar How about finding a fix to get that Sybarite achievement, then I'll play.

  • BeardWhisperer0 Mr.Bean🐼 (@BeardWhisperer0) reported

    @GearsofWar you need to patch the pc version of four it keeps freezing after a few hours of playing. This is ridiculous because it's a known issue with gtx 10 series cards since the beginning of the year. It leads to being baned from core for 12 mins when it's your fault.

  • MaybeSomeDayX1 Ryan (@MaybeSomeDayX1) reported

    @OctusTC @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears @GearsViking @XboxP3 give them a testing environment and a team to fix this!!

    @AyeWreck @GearsofWar @EsportsGears Contract. Problem solved. It’s the orgs own fault atp.

  • Verdictt_ Ess Verdict (@Verdictt_) reported

    Got on gears 4 to have a couple games with some old friends and get banned for 2 hours 47 minutes after completing a tdm game like normal.. Just constant problems with your game guys @OctusTC @CoalitionGears

  • Anabolic_Sean Anabolic Sean (@Anabolic_Sean) reported

    @DavidHohnMN @GearsofWar The 2v2 XP payout is a glitch, TC don't know how to properly setup XP😉

  • sonegokrone Sergio Sonego Krone (@sonegokrone) reported

    @generalraam85 @GearsViking @danasissons @GearsofWar @OctusTC @CoalitionGears It is a connection problem, happened to me before. Solves alone when your net gets stable

  • elxeneixe86 elxeneixe (@elxeneixe86) reported

    @JordanCousins15 @CoalitionGears @Dixit90104014 @LeiT0X_ARG @Facundo_Arana I guess that when they say they investigate they have methods to determine a player that quits due to hardware issues and players with bad behavior. I agree in cases like yours a suspension is unfair. I've been suspended due to the game kicking me out too. This should be improved

  • JordanCousins15 Jordan Cousins (@JordanCousins15) reported

    @CoalitionGears @XxRaiokuxX @GearsofWar Xbox LIVE Gold is not required for online multiplayer on PC - this looks like another issue but I haven't seen it before.

  • 28Miniman Sam Prosser (@28Miniman) reported

    @generalraam85 @GearsViking @danasissons @GearsofWar @OctusTC @CoalitionGears Happened to me before, should fix itself within a few minutes or hours

  • SpifterSwifter Master Chief (@SpifterSwifter) reported

    @generalraam85 @GearsViking @danasissons @GearsofWar @OctusTC @CoalitionGears This game is ridiculous annoying. They better fix all of this with Gears 5. Especially the instant 15 minute bans for getting disconnected.

  • mhemmerlin Matt Hemmerlin (@mhemmerlin) reported

    @CoalitionGears Thanks. Trying not to be a jerk, but it's super fustrating that this issue has been around for over 18 months. Really seems like the PC community has been ignored. This would not have happened on the console version.

  • MrNoFacee MrNoFacee (@MrNoFacee) reported

    @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar @XboxSupport @windowsstore @WindowsSupport Ah that’s annoying hopefully you guys can fix it soon since I want to get back in the action. I play a lot of different and new games so this will effect me playing them sadly so I’ll have to wait 😞

  • moufxx xxMoufxx (@moufxx) reported

    @CoalitionGears You guys dont even try to look into my account and see what's the problem. You guys just brush your customers off as long you guys got your money you are satisfied

  • moufxx xxMoufxx (@moufxx) reported

    @CoalitionGears No fix the ******* ranking before making a new character.. I go on a 10 win streak. My percentage at a stand still.. but when I lose one I drop 15%. I just want the honest truth before I report this to xbox or go nationwide.. only certain can have diamond..

  • moufxx xxMoufxx (@moufxx) reported

    @CoalitionGears This why I hope you guys fix the ranking because in the future I see that many buying gears 5. I won against a stack diamond team. I'm onyx 3... and I didnt go up. But when I lose I go down

  • Iamsharknado K1llez 4 fun (Kyle) (@Iamsharknado) reported

    @PaulLivo @OctusTC @danasissons @nodezero @CoalitionGears I’m in the US on US servers normally with around 40-50 ping and I still routinely get booted from matches on servers I should have no problem connecting to

  • Clonedvarient That Cloned Guy (@Clonedvarient) reported

    @VeryOKDYLPH @GearsofWar No female characters have been around for years. Youre obviously upset by this, but being adaptive while playing is key. If youre aiming for center mass in a 1v1 then youll be fine, dont needlessy rush in blind, be observant and the slightly smaller characters arent a problem.

  • KevinFreebyrd Schlump Dog Millionaire (@KevinFreebyrd) reported

    @FortniteGame Shit up fix your shit you lucky @GearsofWar hasn’t came out I’m about to drop you from my life

    @CoalitionGears 25 games in 21 wins 4 loses still only lost points and gained nothing can u please fix my account

  • PaulLivo Livo (@PaulLivo) reported

    @Iamsharknado @OctusTC @danasissons @nodezero @CoalitionGears It's quite hard to tell if I'm honest. Being in the UK but finding that the vast majority of my matches are hosted on a US server, it can be difficult to differentiate between general lag and a server issue as both tend to be just as unplayable at times.

  • Iamsharknado K1llez 4 fun (Kyle) (@Iamsharknado) reported

    @OctusTC @danasissons @nodezero @CoalitionGears I have plenty of stories I could tell you, but I only got my capture card about 4 months ago and around 2 months since it’s been broken so I don’t have nearly the entire library of proof that @PaulLivo could send when he’s free. This still happens to this day, as little as I play

  • OctusTC TC Octus (@OctusTC) reported

    @Iamsharknado @danasissons @nodezero @CoalitionGears The symbols in the bottom right are flagging two issues: Medium packet loss (the boxes) Medium ping variance impact (the wifi) The two in combination almost certainly means the player’s network is too congested with traffic to play which is causing all of the issues in that.

  • ClassierDylan Classier Dylan (@ClassierDylan) reported

    @GearsofWar The most broken map in Gears 3. You spawn up top it's an L

  • mhemmerlin Matt Hemmerlin (@mhemmerlin) reported

    @CoalitionGears And after the 3rd lockup of the night I get a penalty. Come on guys. I have over 50 games in my library and none of them except gears 4 has this issue.

  • Iamsharknado K1llez 4 fun (Kyle) (@Iamsharknado) reported

    @PaulLivo @danasissons @Shatteristiic @OctusTC @CoalitionGears It’s not just people outside the US either, I’m US East, don’t have top of the line internet, but it’s the only game I ever disconnect from lobbies or lag in while playing.

  • PaulLivo Livo (@PaulLivo) reported

    @danasissons @Iamsharknado @Shatteristiic @OctusTC @CoalitionGears I understand that this couldn't be checked due to it being quite old. I just wanted to highlight the server issues in general, whether that be bans, it taking 1hr 54mins to matchmake, being consistently put on far away servers. It's impacting a large amount of people.
