Let me get this straight -- you guys hook up on Friday nights for Gears of War?

I haven't played much Gears of War online, but if I knew people who were playing it, I'd be all over it.

It's there now.  It's an update, not something you get through the marketplace if you are looking there.

according to Major Nelson, it's going to be a rolling release...not everyone will have access to it at the same time in hopes of spreading out the server load a little more.  once they start making it available, he claims that everyone should have access to the update within a couple hours.

If only there was somwhere on these boards where one could find people for multiplay.

Hmmm.

D00D!

It is a TON of fun.

Really exciting matches especially if you have even teams.  Lots of new strategy like when to roll off a capture point to try to guess the next one.

AWESOME!

Continuing observations:

1. I've not experienced as much 'host advantage' in all my months of playing as I did tonight.
2. It seems much easier to get stuck to walls
3. It seems like the pistol has been increased in power- yes increased.
4. Encountered quite a few glitches tonight. In one case a guy was above me on a platform and I had a clear shot at his legs. He jumped right over me.
5. If the teams are not balanced, it is VERY apparent. Even more so than in other modes.
6. The fact that the down is from warzone and not execution, sucks.
7. I'm gonna hate myself when it's time to wake up tomorrow.

Word is that they increased the power on the Lancer and Locust rifle.  About damn time.

I tried playing the new mode last night with ATB.  Reminded me why I prefer R6 over GoW slywink  I'll be back to R6 from here on out.  I prefer single player GoW and multi R6.
