team deathmatch sucks

#1 Posted by tunaburn (1890 posts) -

first off i love gears of war 3. But the team deathmatch mode is horrible and thats all anyone plays on here. It's not fair to me that i dont die at all but my team burns through 15 lives insanely fast. Then i finally die once after getting 8 kills and now i dont resapawn. While my shit teammates have had 3-4 lives each.

if they really need a respawn mode each player should have 3 lives. not a shared 20. This isnt call of duty.

also it takes away that feeling you get from execution or warzone. when its just you and 3 of the enemy left. and your team is watching you. and you take out 2 of them... and then its 1 vs 1... and its so intense.... that was awesome

thats not in team deathmatch because 99% of the time one team still has respawns so they just bum rush you over and over....

anyone else agree?

Team deathmatch generally blows in all games.

The versus modes in that game are absolutely awful. Beast and Horde mode, man. Beast and Horde mode.

Yup, TD is pure garbage. GoW 1 forever the best game. Kung fu flips all day.

I agree with what you said but it's the players that suck. I've got back on Gears 3 over the past couple of weeks and when I don't have a team to play with I just play KOTH or CTL, the whole point of TDM is to make every spawn count, it's just too bad that most people take that to mean "as long I get one kill per spawn I'm doing it right". It is pretty annoying seeing people that are 3-10 at the end of the match.

I suppose this bright side is that it keeps your deaths to a minimum :)

What is most experienced in my playing of the versus modes is dudes excessively rolling about, shotgun or map-placed weapons in hand, rapidly jumping between walls and cover when approached.
 
I mean really. The versus modes are cheesed beyond what I could have ever thought Gears could be cheesed. It's not fun, guys. Gritting your teeth and playing something as unenjoyable as that isn't what vidyag's are about.

@RoyCampbell: Sorry, but coversliding is not cheesing. It is what makes good players good, and bad players bad. This is how GoW works and has always worked.

What do you want? Everyone to be sat behind a piece of cover the entire game? No, this is not how it works.

You sound like a gross person. Talk down to the Xbox Live kids while you binge out on your Gears; don't bring that shit here. I'd find a video of this cover-sliding business but that'd require me to actually care to continue this argument.

@RoyCampbell: I barely play. I haven't spoken to anybody on xbox live for about 4 years.

Bringing gears of war talk into a gears of war thread. Shame on me

You just seem mad that you're not very good because you don't want to "cheese" the game.

Lemme guess... you use Sawed-off and Retro.

LOL Gears multiplayer period. It as a whole should not be taken seriously.

I totally forgot about that. How about the crazy crab-walking too? Gears 1 was so much fun to screw around with.

This. I liked versus in 1, but now I see no reason to play anything other than Beast or Horde.

Weird how you think that but I think gears 3 is one of my favorite multiplayer games of all time. I absolutely love it. What would you recommend instead?

Call of Duty 4 was the only game on xbox that does team deathmatch right....the only game.

just for them to put it back to the way gears used to be. exection and warzone modes. i hate that they changed it into gears of duty

@laserbolts: Now hold up there slick, I never said Gears multiplayer sucked, it is fun, but it goofy combat kinda makes it hard to take seriously. But then again I really don't take any mp game seriously. Meh. As for the topic, if you don't like team deathmatch, don't play it. Last time I checked warzone and execution were still available.

But those modes still exist and finding a game in them is instant so I don't get it. Since you called it gears of duty though I have zero interest in replying to you anymore.

@laserbolts: you are completely wrong. there is an average of 300 people playing ranked exection. and 100 playing ranked warzone. finding games in those take forever. and yes gears of war completely went the route of call of duty adding team deathmatch with lives exactly like call of duty. its not gears of war with fucking respawns in the normal mode.

What's wrong with cover-sliding? I'm honestly asking and not trying to be a "gross person". It seems like a completely viable tactic- heck. It's discussed in the official guide as not only an efficient (and safer) way to cross the map, but it's great for quick escapes and creates opportunities in close quarter combat.

Is this something that is really looked down upon? Once again, I'm honestly asking.

@P00zombie: From what i've seen, it's only looked down upon by people who either can't do it, or are pissed off when others do it and they don't know how to do shit all about it.

I, like the majority of people playing the game (looking at how the player-base is spread across modes), think that TDM is fucking great in Gears. Execution and Warzone are still there, fighting strong, but I personally don't like them as much. I played a bit of GoW1 and 2, but nowhere near as much as TDM in 3.

*shrug*

That's why I play Warzone.

Gears of War 3 was made for Horde mode.

Go play Horde mode!
