We are excited to announce the Competitive 2.0 BETA dev playlist is now available for testing to the whole community!
We recently flew a number of Pro Players out to our studio in Vancouver, Canada to get hands on with the new Competitive settings, gathering their valuable feedback and insight to help us nail down our vision for the next evolution of Competitive.
Now it’s your turn. Beginning today, we’re opening the new Competitive 2.0 Beta playlist to trial these new changes – and all with Double XP to earn for a limited time! Here’s a breakdown of what to expect:
Phase One: Gnasher and Movement
This test is specifically for the Competitive Tuning Set in Gears of War 4.
In order to gather the specific feedback we need, we’re breaking the test down into phases, incrementally adding more of tuning changes as the test progresses. This allows us – and you – to focus on particular changes to Competitive when playing, rather than taking in everything all at once.
Our first phase focuses on changes to the Gnasher and Player Movement. The goal of the new proposed shotgun and movement tuning developed with the Pros is to enable more diverse playstyles and create a better teamfight competitive experience. The Gnasher's damage will have a slower falloff, allowing smart shooters to two-shot down an enemy who might be charging towards them trying to get into one-shot range, or escaping while weak. To compensate, the Wallbounce delay has also been changed to enable players to have more movement options at their disposal when dealing with a slightly more punishing shotgun.
