  • pzstm pzstm (@pzstm) reported

    @Rippenharra @GearsPOP @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar at least it's not just me. Hope they'll fix by the time they will wake up on the other side :)

  • daz40th Denzel Zabaza (@daz40th) reported

    Praying that @GearsofWar 5th installment would launch to pc with no problems specially since its on steam this time around. Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  • DrunkJug CG (@DrunkJug) reported

    @GearsofWar @steam_games Expect lock ups and freezes and a generic response from the developers that they are working closely with nvidia but it is extremely complicated and the issue never gets resolved. Truth.

  • Shatteristiic Jooooosh | Shatter (@Shatteristiic) reported

    @PaulLivo @OctusTC @nodezero @CoalitionGears I actually had absolutely no issues at all on pc with the tech test, no crashes or freezes, blue screens the game ran fine and fps stayed steady. Was great in that aspect for me unlike 4.

  • vortex1096 Vortex1096(Nathan) (@vortex1096) reported

    @JayDubcity16 @Verdict4489 @aarongreenberg @GMaxee @gamescom @XboxDACH @Xbox @GearsofWar Liver problems but your lungs are ok

  • ChaosBahamut Jack C. (@ChaosBahamut) reported

    @PezRadar Being able to swap between party-members in battle without having to issue a command'll do that a bit.

  • GunsNGlue Acc4FreeStuffGoAway (@GunsNGlue) reported

    @SenatorIvy @GearsofWar @steam_games Now we just wait until they port over the rest of the franchise to steam, maybe fix 4’s shit card system and replace it with 5’s before they bring it over to steam.

  • thatsablueberry imyourblueberry (@thatsablueberry) reported

    @GearsofWar Please pay attention to your community. We DO NOT want character based skills. Gears 4 was almost perfect. I appreciate the idea, but you don't need fix what isn't broken. If we can get a patch in a couple months that undoes this, I will consider playing horde.

  • Penxlty 🆒 (@Penxlty) reported

    The fact that @GearsofWar still doesn’t work with 10xx Nvidia cards is insane. I can’t get through 2 games without a crash.

  • Dzydvl Bob The Builder (@Dzydvl) reported

    @Alwayz1up @mX_Rawr @CoalitionGears If you think GOW3 was the high point, that might be your problem.

  • babybluecollar BulbaScore (@babybluecollar) reported

    @Dust_tgu @GearsofWar Power you collect gets distributed among everyone so I don’t think it will be an issue other than everyone spending the money to upgrade themselves versus buy fortifications etc, but you won’t have to worry about your scout just keeping it all for themselves

  • RMNTcptBADGER Rmnt Deity Badger (@RMNTcptBADGER) reported

    @MadEmperorMike @GearsofWar They are gonna killing him as carmine from gears 4 two seconds of life was nice fan service but why we didn't get to see Clayton carmine in game made me think did He die in batween games but it would be nice to see him

  • icyinsd IcyInSd (@icyinsd) reported

    So got home a little late due to car problems. Installing GEARS 4 as we speak boisssss! As soon as it finishes we will gettr' doneeee! #GearsOfWar #TwitchAffilate #twitchstreamer

  • KotyRelaxing RelaxingKoty (@KotyRelaxing) reported

    @calcheese @GearsofWar no problem.

  • Shatteristiic Jooooosh | Shatter (@Shatteristiic) reported

    @YourDevastator @Neon_Velocity @OctusTC @nodezero @CoalitionGears @GearsViking @danasissons I just want to make things clear for everyone. I have no issue with the skins being in the game at all, i'm not salty or upset etc. I'm just making the point that this is mainly done for advertising which is smart, just frustrating they're using other franchises to boot their own

  • ZiiTwitch 🍕 GGZII 🍕 (@ZiiTwitch) reported

    Hard to stream, play or or making content for @CoalitionGears GoW4PC when the game crashes every half a map. Terrible customer service.

  • ClassierDylan 🦍Classier Dylan🦍 (@ClassierDylan) reported

    @ARTPOPReign @BennyC93 @GearsofWar I might not like the "playing as certain characters for certain abilities", but I respect them for doing new things and in all honesty, it's not even a real problem

  • Dust_tgu Dust_tgu (@Dust_tgu) reported

    @babybluecollar @MrHyperrion @BChapy @GearsofWar This was my problem, with no other way to earn the cards especially. We no failed every map on insane horde, and I still didn't have the 2 skills I wanted.

  • The_Juicy_Moose TheJuicyMoose (@The_Juicy_Moose) reported

    @CoalitionGears Love making it to the end of the game Act V-4 on Ironman on PC and the game crashing then booting back up to have Ironman turned off...Awesome...Also, hope your Gears 5 is not a crash fest like 4, thanks. Please take care of your game better.

  • ZiiTwitch 🍕 GGZII 🍕 (@ZiiTwitch) reported

    trying to get into Gow again but GoW4 PC constantly crashes, same for GoW5 PC, when will @GearsofWar @XboxP3 actually fix the game and accept that its not right to consumers to launch a broken product

  • TastyTajie Ela is just a side chick (@TastyTajie) reported

    @CoalitionGears why does gears 4 literally break if you're in a party it freezes and skips and crash's and if u plug your mic out and plug it back in it crashs

  • K__Med K-Med (@K__Med) reported

    @Buachaill_Dona @XboxSupport @GearsofWar Seriously think that quest is just broken. Tried it again with no luck.

  • mysuperglasses Robert Anderson (@mysuperglasses) reported

    Although I'm not a big #GearsofWar fan, I'll probably play #Gears5 simply because of my Game Pass Ultimate subscription, still a big, big fan of the service

  • kevinDTD The Rev (@kevinDTD) reported

    @S1thgaming @JimmyAgera_11 @geoffkeighley @Xbox @GearsViking @GearsofWar "Nah, but I've heard" thats the problem right there There will be plenty of fanboys out there lying their tiny ***** off trying to bash this game. This game looks amazing, they don't want any xbox game to succeed If this was a PS exclusives, they'd be hailing it as GOTY material.

  • Alyguadalupe2 Aly guadalupe (@Alyguadalupe2) reported

    @MicrosoftVan @CoalitionGears @GearsViking @mattbooty The coalition I can't move to rank three of broze could help me with that problem in gears of war 4

  • cristia75417602 Cristian Corral (@cristia75417602) reported

    @CoalitionGears fix the damn online ranking system or even better fix both it honestly ruins the F****** game. It gears of war rank and online rank trash I just imagine this one

  • scot_work Scot Work (@scot_work) reported

    @PezRadar Except they are not great cars. They have many quality issues, and service is nonexistent. #TeslaServiceIssues #TeslaQualityIssues

  • IWCNation iWc Nation (@IWCNation) reported from Santee, California

    @GearsofWar please fix your broken ass multiplayer. The ranking system, the lancer & match making are all atrocious. I’ve been a die hard #Gears fans since day 1. It’s the 1st game I got on 360. Now the MP is a sham of its former self. #Gears1 still the best #IWCNationPodcast

  • TyroneMathis6 TyroneMathis (@TyroneMathis6) reported

    @Clonedvarient @Makayle19 @CoalitionGears it’s not about the weapon skin, it’s how they don’t even address the issue and don’t seem to care about the players having the issue which really pisses me off.

  • slayer_irish Irish Slayer (@slayer_irish) reported

    @GearsofWar @XboxWire I hope #Gears5 has better servers then Gears 4 or Gears5 will sink faster then the Titanic ....Lag compensation is a crime in a competitive shooter..Most of the good players left Gears 4, 2 years ago when your added Lag Comp to the game...

  • DaNiFrEdXx19 Daniel red devil (@DaNiFrEdXx19) reported

    @CoalitionGears im having problems with the servers online in gears 4 its been 4 days at least like that and the ping is more higher than my normal one

  • BarwolfMoritz Moritz Bärwolf (@BarwolfMoritz) reported

    @aoc87 @GearsofWar @stormcohk @GameStop yeah same problem for Germany

  • CoalitionGears The Coalition Studio (@CoalitionGears) reported

    @ChrisHappens91 @GearsofWar @stormcohk @GameStop Broken links had us down, but not out.

  • maine30001 maine3000 (@maine30001) reported

    @CoalitionGears Y’all still ain’t help me with my earlier problems tho 💀

  • CoalitionGears The Coalition Studio (@CoalitionGears) reported

    With the Gears 5 launch almost here, we are temporarily ceasing DM support via @CoalitionGears. We will continue to monitor your responses and keep you apprised of any issues, but 1-1 support will be reduced during this time. Thanks for your understanding.

  • YaBoyJUMP Hardwork (@YaBoyJUMP) reported

    42 game winning streak at 95.62% lost 1 match went down 95.14% please fix this in Gears 5 @CoalitionGears @GearsViking @GearsofWar I only get punished.

  • CastSolid Solidrev (@CastSolid) reported

    @ericutz4thewin @Arsonall @OltionZoto1 @CoalitionGears @Xbox @XboxSupport @XboxP3 Yeah not fixing the game is ridiculous but suspending me cause of an issue they refuse to fix well that's just a slap in the face after tellin me to go **** myself

  • Arsonall Arsonall (@Arsonall) reported

    @OltionZoto1 @CastSolid @ericutz4thewin @CoalitionGears @Xbox @XboxSupport @XboxP3 So your advice of “posting to the forums” that Coalition already posted on, aware of the problem and saying they were going to fix it (this was 8 or 9 months ago) isn’t great advice.

  • PartyUpLive PartyUpLive (@PartyUpLive) reported

    @ericutz4thewin @Arsonall @CoalitionGears @Xbox @XboxSupport @XboxP3 Yeah just check the forums. People are still having issues with Nvidia 10 Series cards. But if you got Game Pass at least you won't have to pay for it. when it does work for pc it's Amazing.

  • Arsonall Arsonall (@Arsonall) reported

    @OltionZoto1 @CastSolid @ericutz4thewin @CoalitionGears @Xbox @XboxSupport @XboxP3 This is an issue that’s been happening for around a year or so. Xbox and Coalition are aware of the problem. They just haven’t fixed it. Not sure why.

  • OltionZoto1 M3tal Daz3 (@OltionZoto1) reported

    @CastSolid @Arsonall @ericutz4thewin @CoalitionGears @Xbox @XboxSupport @XboxP3 For in-game issues you must contact the game's dev support or post in their forums

  • orban_matyas Mátyás Orbán (@orban_matyas) reported

    @CoalitionGears 😢coalition notice that the system I am looking for in such a lobby is not working. Change. Thanks. I suedpaladin440. silver 2.

  • scoott2k scoott2k (@scoott2k) reported

    @CoalitionGears read my dm PLEASE TO FIX MY ACCOUNT

  • MalcontentMatt Matt Johnson (@MalcontentMatt) reported

    Hey @GearsofWar, Gears 4 is still broke AF on newest Nvidia drivers. I have zero confidence you'll be releasing Gears 5 with this problem resolved since you haven't said it was fixed. Glad I didn't pre-order!

  • Shelitoupg Chelito Perea (@Shelitoupg) reported

    @MovieMiguel @BigPhil1993 @GearsViking @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar @danasissons @nodezero @OctusTC Had the same problem, i don’t know if you have to play the campaing again or only the final chapter to unlocked

  • Sho7gunKnight Sho7gun Knight (@Sho7gunKnight) reported

    Some of the road to Gears 5 challenges seem to be glitch on PC or at least in my experience. I completed many hordes in the past days and still have 0 kills in horde mode and some public rounds of versus too. @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar @GearsViking

  • luisrenriquez Sir Enriquez (@luisrenriquez) reported

    @OctusTC @CoalitionGears Just give us a decent gnasher and not broken rank system, pls

  • gameplayuk gameplay (@gameplayuk) reported

    @Tyleguidry7 @CastioJean @Punk_N_Pi3 @GearsofWar @XboxWire The old omen was never a problem, the new one is just obnoxious. The inverse omen actually punishes aggressive players because our screen is constantly caked in juice. TBH they should just offer an option to toggle classic omen in the settings for all the people who hate inverse.

  • jonkillerz JONKILLERZ (@jonkillerz) reported

    @MarkRein @CoalitionGears FIX YOUR GAME!!! REMOVE BRUTES!!!

  • azgaz Alex Klontzas (@azgaz) reported

    @TheRealSophist @PezRadar My forearms were the problem at first, now that I know the moves it's the rest of me that can't keep up after taking a 6 month break. I just run out of stamina before my arms even get tired :(

  • Jonathan1308SC Jonathan🇩🇰🇪🇸 (@Jonathan1308SC) reported

    @MarkRein @CoalitionGears Fix your game

  • frankdietank FranktheTank (@frankdietank) reported

    @GearsofWar @XboxWire Please pleaseeeee have extra servers ready. More people will have this game then ever before with gamepass and pc game pass so the traffic will be insane. Please be ready, litterally no game I’ve bought this year hasn’t had server issues.

  • LimpDrippy Dominic (@LimpDrippy) reported

    @Stallion83 @CoalitionGears crashes like that. For Gears 4, their workaround is to install +2 year old drivers. This is hardly a fix. I can't play anything else if I do this. I'm hoping Gears 5 doesn't have the same tech test/Gears 4 problems. I'm not holding my breath.

  • LimpDrippy Dominic (@LimpDrippy) reported

    @Stallion83 It seems like the @CoalitionGears devs haven't fixed the problems that plagued Nvidia 10 series cards. I crashed maybe 15 times total (probably more) while playing the tech test. The error was that the graphics card stopped responding or something like that. No other game...

  • Punk_N_Pi3 George Hutchings (@Punk_N_Pi3) reported

    @gameplayuk @GearsofWar @XboxWire One of the development guys says before the beta "if it's a problem or gets horrible feedback we will consider changing it back to the original" and yet when people ******* he pretty much said "oh well old omen is gone forever and new omen is here to stay".
