  • Jules1451 Julian Rosado (@Jules1451) reported

    @CoalitionGears Hey guys, will there ever be a fix on the unjustly ranked bans when I get disconnected either from my own connection or your servers. Not once have I quit to the main menu during a game but yet when I get disconnected, I get banned. This is very frustrating...

  • murd3r_tankz MuRd3r Tankz (@murd3r_tankz) reported

    @CoalitionGears do you even know the meaning of the axronym #TDM? Well it means Team Death Match... So why did you decide to make it where you can't squad up with your 3 friends/teammates and play TDM together? Y'all don't make any sense 😡 If you have half a brain fix this pls!!

  • slayer_irish 🤔 (@slayer_irish) reported

    4 on 4 KOH feels imbalanced and ruined the game! I know the @CoalitionGears are trying to fix #Gears5 up but making radical changes like that makes the game feel unrecognizable! @GearsGentleman

  • Wayne80079373 Wayne (@Wayne80079373) reported

    @CoalitionGears It's because the DEVS go on vacation and brag about it. Fix the damn game the players spend our money on. It's that simple. 😎

  • RGH06 Ryan Hatcher (@RGH06) reported

    @GearsofWar Your game has been out for over a year and I’m still having issues with medals not counting.

  • RGH06 Ryan Hatcher (@RGH06) reported

    @CoalitionGears Fix medals not counting. I currently have 3 different medals that should be complete but are not counting when I complete the objective.

  • CancerD3 Cancer D (@CancerD3) reported

    @GearsofWar FIX THE MOVEMENT AND BUILET REG THIS IS ******* STUPID. ******* walking around this **** is actually boring I’m not kidding, I’ll play the new cod instead. Like the movement is so slow and clunky it’s gross bro. The lancer does absolutely nothing too. I just don’t get it bro.
