    @Viqusan @PezRadar Awww I miss you both, we need to get an annual esports family reunion going. In Vegas. Solves both problems.

    @GearsofWar @TheRazoredEdge @TrueAchievement Now please @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar @nodezero @OctusTC I just need Gears UE for Windows 10 to receive a fix for the XP issue so I can finish my last 2 achievements on there. And I will have every Gears title completed as well as variations. (After finishing 5 and Pop)

  • mikosinai Miko Sinai (@mikosinai) reported

    Was playing @GearsofWar and keep dying on this one level lol. Then there was a glitch. Bamb! I killed all the enemies stood frozen. Tada and that's how i passed the level lol😁

  • Blunz_D Donald Blundon (@Blunz_D) reported

    @EnglishBean86 @GearsofWar You clearly don’t understand the issue.

  • mG0kul gokulnyc@gmail.com (@mG0kul) reported

    @CoalitionGears Asian players have to wait forever to find matchs. Fix it soon

  • BlackGhost2810 Erik (@BlackGhost2810) reported

    I don't know if they really fix the game or make it worse and worse @OctusTC @CoalitionGears

  • _GutsC Guts (@_GutsC) reported

    @CoalitionGears @EsportsGears @nodezero @OctusTC purchased a pro league weapon set and it’s no where to be found in customization. Please fix

  • Aguero32Mais Angel Eduardo Aguero (@Aguero32Mais) reported

    @CoalitionGears Fix the ******* hitbox, the enemies all the time swallow the bullets🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽

  • AceDoloX1 Ace Dolo 🇵🇦 (@AceDoloX1) reported

    @PezRadar @IamJovonW Yes, a 2019 version where I’m paying monthly and they fixed those issues but I have to cut out games not under Microsoft.

  • MaybeSomeDayX1 ❄️❄️ (@MaybeSomeDayX1) reported

    @AdamPhillippy @BrennanCasteel @GearsofWar Bro I've been around since 06 too. It's easily the worst iteration (besides the campaign) to date. They screwed multiplayer. I know but I wanna help fix it. Not trash it.

  • kravengod KravenGod (@kravengod) reported

    @PezRadar It definitely is. As a consumer, I never thought something like this could exist or even sustain itself. A huge awesome deal for us subscribers of the service

  • Steelrain81s Chris thurman (@Steelrain81s) reported

    @adamof609 @GearsofWar This isnt mobile games its the actual games playable on your phone with a controller. Just get to play gears anywhere. Downfall is input lag.

  • hugogunit1 gearsjuice (@hugogunit1) reported

    @GearsofWar i dont recomend playing this. its lagging big time and will get dropped maybe penalized for "QUITING "

  • BladeBr0ther Jesus is my King (@BladeBr0ther) reported

    @GearsofWar So that you can charge more money for a broken game,.....NO THANKS

  • UtmostPotential D. Breeze 💨 (@UtmostPotential) reported

    Yo the number one issue I have with #Gears5 is the tuning like why is it so soft even in competitive. Gears 4 was tweaked over and over to find a better tuning and then they downgrade to this marshmallow soft ass mess.. open the skill gap back up Please @CoalitionGears 😑

  • nodezero Ryan Cleven (@nodezero) reported

    @EffectzNoGood @CoalitionGears @OctusTC @danasissons Unfortunately, as of right now, being the leader may hurt you a bit. It will drop your k/d. We have a design to fix this but it’s in progress.

  • Spincredible Dj Spincredible 🇪🇺 ☮️ (@Spincredible) reported

    @GearsofWar Not to mention the Broken mechanics like that 95% & 99% Gnasher Hits.

  • BenDove92015228 Ben Dover (@BenDove92015228) reported

    Nothing worse than waiting weeks for a game to “FIX” their ranking system just for them to give us the same BS.... There was no update, it was just a rank reset! CHANGE MY MIND #gears5 #gears #gearsofwar

  • XxKriegxX Fe1ndbildMen5ch (@XxKriegxX) reported

    @GearsofWar My company would fire me if I release something unfinished, need more than 2 month to fix it and ignore my users/clients wishes...and already got the money! Something's wrong with this industry

  • Spincredible Dj Spincredible 🇪🇺 ☮️ (@Spincredible) reported

    @GearsofWar Service Alert !!! FIX YOUR GAME. In the Middle of my Placement Matches People got kicked & we got Smashed. my Ranking is F.... & so is your Game. Every 2nd Match. Thanks 4 a Great Gears experience. This Trash cost me 60€.

  • FatherBabyHands FatherBootyHands (@FatherBabyHands) reported

    @UtmostPotential @GearsofWar My problem is that I don’t play versus :/

  • SlNIST3R Dave C (@SlNIST3R) reported

    @sunshine31193 @GearsofWar The game is broken. Sad day to be a Gears fan. I've been playing since the original and this game is a bust.

  • MrTony007 MrTony007 (@MrTony007) reported

    @GearsofWar Take back Gears 4 gameplay, movement speed, weapon balance and accuracy, and trash your garbage new maps , e.g all except asylum. Fix sound too, footsteps are sounding as if mice were running inside the walls. That's what you need to do.

  • UrDelusional_ LEWIS (@UrDelusional_) reported

    @Gingyrastaa @UtmostPotential @GreenJedijames @CoalitionGears The problem is The Coalition does not understand Gears of War at its core. They simply dont know how to make a REAL Gears of War game. Their philosophy is to cater the game for people who only play the campaign and the casuals who go 1 kill and 10 deaths in multiplayer.

  • LogicG4647 Untchble (@LogicG4647) reported

    @GearsofWar Definitely need to talk ab that “fix” you sent out for the ranking system...

  • Saitekina Jay (@Saitekina) reported

    @CoalitionGears I will never understand the ranking system.. All my placement matches were me going 20-3 19-4 I was placed diamond 2 went on a match got MVP 19-3 got dropped to diamond 1 50 percent. So they didn't really fix anything. They just reset people to make it seem like they fixed it.

  • Tak225Th TAK THE CONSOLE GAMER (@Tak225Th) reported

    @Doom_State @rederz13 @TWEETxTWEETx @SeaOfThieves @Blueshirts102 @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears Was trying to load up at the time was not working had to hard reset Xbox

  • Azeroth3873 GreenLeavesMatter (@Azeroth3873) reported

    @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar For now I'll play other game pass games that I can expect errors on since they are not on their 5th installment of a franchise. Brand new games by brand new companies can get away with an underdeveloped game.

  • Azeroth3873 GreenLeavesMatter (@Azeroth3873) reported

    @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar Player population is dropping fast, better either fix your game right or add some spectacular content. Search a horde match and finally get a full group after joining and leaving 10-15 matches pre lobby

  • Capnjazz2 Cap n jazz (@Capnjazz2) reported

    @M_Michael_Fenix @MikeMidnite @CoalitionGears Definitely. Right now ark pvp is plagued with people duping items and creatures. Broken beyond belief but they still got a tight group. Sad to see gears back at less than 1k

  • CogCouple CogCouple (@CogCouple) reported

    GG @CoalitionGears @nodezero The melee is a good fix. Now let's get on with them 10 new maps before January.....................😁 #Gears5

  • arodi_h afterglow (@arodi_h) reported

    @CoalitionGears Still garbage. Still no fix when the game keeps crashing for pc.

  • Oxidra1n OXID🇵🇹 (@Oxidra1n) reported

    @Kougat_VT @CoalitionGears @EmbryStarred And the rank still broken

  • AmericanPsychom Sy Bateman (@AmericanPsychom) reported

    @Mordin23711274 @CoalitionGears Gears is not optimized for Nvidia graphics cards too. Your pc isn't a problem at all. I wish I have that lol.

  • C9fanboi606 Jenson bodies fools (@C9fanboi606) reported

    @CoalitionGears fahz’s exploit weakness is not working properly. Right now it only increases critical damage during X-RAY. It seem it’s bugged. Can you please fix it

  • Fathead_on_bass Sweaty Irish man (@Fathead_on_bass) reported

    @nodezero @realxlegoadrian @CoalitionGears The comms are open and that is the main reason I'm still sticking with this game despite the issues

  • robertwalton10 robert walton (@robertwalton10) reported

    @SeaOfThieves @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears Maybe concentrate on sorting gears 5 before promoting the broken game within other franchises

  • YouTw33t Angelo (@YouTw33t) reported

    @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar Still can’t find a ranked game in Australia after this so called phase 2. Do what you want with the ranking system because it doesn’t effect me because I can’t get any ranked games anyway. Broken game from launch and months later still can’t be fixed. Where’s my refund

  • AmericanPsychom Sy Bateman (@AmericanPsychom) reported

    @aarondamron1988 @Maxoutofnowhere @CoalitionGears They don't fix big bus for horde and escape.

  • AmericanPsychom Sy Bateman (@AmericanPsychom) reported

    @aarondamron1988 @Maxoutofnowhere @CoalitionGears It's not that we buy stuff. Is that the cool things are behind a paywall and there is nothing to do. Even ranks are still broken bro. The game could be great but by how it's now is hard to see it.

  • AmericanPsychom Sy Bateman (@AmericanPsychom) reported

    @SSurville @LogicG4647 @CoalitionGears It's embarrassing. Grinding that much for nothing. And the ranks are still broken. It's like whatever, the game it's all yours.

  • rockerluigi luigi (@rockerluigi) reported

    @CoalitionGears We expected a better game because they made such a bad game that they only had to fix the 4 copy and paste errors and add the maps that this game sucks, it is not competitive is for players without skill

  • _Deski Jesse Martin (@_Deski) reported

    @nodezero @realxlegoadrian @CoalitionGears people stoppedsearching ranked a month ago here. There's honestly no point trying to fix ranked for us.

  • RogueRahkshi RogueRahkshi (@RogueRahkshi) reported

    @CoalitionGears I can’t even play on Steam, my friends and I all have choppy gameplay and massive input lag ever since you deployed TU2. I’ve been a fan ever since being introduced to Gears 2. Fix the game so I can stop hating it already.

  • Aaron90350566 Aaron (@Aaron90350566) reported

    @OctusTC @Lend4_ @CoalitionGears After I get my onyx guard I am going to uninstall gears 5 until you actually fix it's problems

  • GastroGymGame Carlos Duty (@GastroGymGame) reported

    @CoalitionGears Everyone hates the following nife, microtransaccions and the power of the lancers, enyone can kill you with that weapons! If you could fix that please! 🙏

  • dama69 chris (@dama69) reported

    @GearsofWar Was anyone else double stars not working it was not giving me double stars at all 🤨

  • joshflowers1 Joshua Flowers (@joshflowers1) reported

    @CoalitionGears Amazing you had what 3-4 years and it's still broken. I'm not even sure that if a Gears 6 comes out I'll pick it up unless a new team that actually cares and respects the fanbase makes it.

  • TurfTalkin TurfTalks (@TurfTalkin) reported

    @CoalitionGears Doesn’t fix 3mvp 5/5 wins the mvp games I was 90+kills and with caps/breaks in the teens placed silver 1. Trash system

  • _RafterMan Rafter_Man (@_RafterMan) reported

    @CoalitionGears Fix ping issues, bullet magnatization, add original trilogy maps, release classic Locust and Cog characters, do this and MAYBE you can keep your some of your die hard player base. Do this asap or die for good. Thanks

  • sunshine31193 Sonia Walker (@sunshine31193) reported

    @CoalitionGears Having an issue now where me and other teammates are running in place and not moving forward, seems to be really glitchy. I checked my internet and it is working fine. Not sure if this is a part of the server issue. Thank you in advance for looking into it

  • aarondamron1988 Aaron (@aarondamron1988) reported

    @GanFaya @CoalitionGears In my opinion it isn’t broken I have fun playing horde I don’t play ranked so yeah

  • aarondamron1988 Aaron (@aarondamron1988) reported

    @GanFaya @CoalitionGears In my opinion it isn’t broken I have fun on horde seriously

  • GanFaya Gan Faya (@GanFaya) reported

    @aarondamron1988 @CoalitionGears It makes no sense to play a broken game 😴

  • MrAberrant MrAberrant (@MrAberrant) reported

    @CoalitionGears The problem is... you may have content for the next 100 years but nobody is waiting around for 1 character to be released every 1 of those years. And certainly not having to then buy said character for an extortionate amount of unattainable currency.

  • michael01403748 michael (@michael01403748) reported

    @CoalitionGears I want a refund ! Wasn’t ready for release , half fix one thing and break 5 more lol ! Love gears from day one but I’ve had it
