Gears of War 4’s Hammerburst, Matchmaking, Leaver Penalties Will Be Retuned
Backfilling for Horde matches also being looked into.
The Coalition has compiled a list of “top level items” that it’s currently working to fix in Gears of War 4 with community manager Adam Fletcher weighing in.
On the subject of the Hammerburst and online play being “dominated by long-range combat” with it, it was noted to be a “big pain point” for players and would be tuned in a future update.
Another issue is matches beginning without a full player roster. “There may be a quick fix that we can do on the backend to address this but it may require some additional work that would come in a later title update. We will do what we can to mitigate and correct this one as soon as possible,” according to Fletcher.
Leaver penalties will also become harsher in the future though it’s not known when. “Unfortunately, this requires a bit more legwork but we are seeing if we can prioritize and have this come out sooner rather than later. We expect this in a future title update but not the next large one.”
Other changes being worked on include other ways for players to earn Gear Boxes, backfilling in Horde and more. What are your thoughts on the issues? Let us know below.
