On top of this freezing issue now the latest update broke the actual updating, the progress bar hangs and doesn't move at all and then says it needs repair, my GoW4 PC friends had to un-install and re-install and it's just happened to me.  
 
Really?!? What a crock of S***! F***** ridiculous!
I know and remember how it was like in Gears 3.  
Getting matched up with same people locally, in TDM and Guardian.  
We even could recognise from being on Epic Games Forum.  
Some Horde 2.0 matches, I would run into same people.  
 
In Gears 4, I haven't ran into others frequently or from here in Versus except Special Event.  
When it comes to Horde 3.0 matchmaking, the same people come up often.
Exactly! I find that even on other shooters if I play them enough, I start to see the same players pop up again and again. You can tell these are the local guys or the hardcore peeps who are on all night or day. Other games don't seem to discount these people from the MM player pool just because we played a game together once, or played a different game together several years ago. 
 
I just can't understand why gears 4 can't get this right! How am I ever to meet new gears players/make rivals if the game won't match my with other players that ARE playing locally?  
How can I get good games if their MM literally just skips over players that I can see online and in gears? Players, who via epxerience, I know have connections that work well enough for them to not get discounted due their being bad lag between us? 
 
The mind does truely boggle on this one!

Yeah I believe op is asking for something similar to what we had in gears 1... gears 2... gears 3... you know real stats and leaderboards.. the lazy attempt at the war journal in this game is just bad. Simple things like proper leaderboards gave people something to strive for, they could compete against friends and randoms for better positioning on leaderboards. K/d, points per match.. the list goes on. simple yet affective way of keeping the players tuned in.  
everytine Sunday rolled around I remember competing with my friends list for 1st place weekly. It's the simple things in games that make the difference
Ah decent leaderboards would be great again, screw my friends though, I wanted the weekly, the monhtly, the lifetime number 1's! (Ok number 2, who the hell has a billion bloody points?) At least it gave you something to strive for, and a ready list of players around your level to make sure you beat if you came across them in the game. 
 
Shiz man, I had full blown rivalries with some people because of the lifetime board on G3. That's months of entertainment right there! 
 
The weeklies and monthlies at least let you know there were players playing your game type as well. Often it gave me the partience to sit in MM waiting for a bit, as I could see that 70,000 people played exe this week, and it's only friday! 
 
Isn't it a joke that theres a leader board for the unranked games of social?

Now my country of Australia and France are joining in, top kek.
It's a comin TC, pullout of the game before it starts to cost you. Just think of the goodwill it will get you, a PR success instead of the PR nightmare to come. 
 
 
Glad that australia and france are coming to the correct conclusions about this, hadn't seen that news yet, so wil go read about it now!

Solo playing is rough in most games, at least in other shooters you can sort of blend into the chaos, not so much in gears. 
 
Stacked teams can be a pain in the ass, but I usualy find as long as there are another one or two people not going full on ejit the games can be doable. 
If they are a bad stack, wrecking face just got tons more fun! 
 
Finding those five diamonds is where the pain is bad though. Like how do you get set against them if your whole team isn't at least onyx 3?Running solo, your teams ranks are likely to vary a fair bit. A few weeks back kept on getting into the same game with a group of golds. 1st two matches were against bronzes and silvers, the 3rd was agaisnt 4 onyx3's and a diamond, stacked. I dont want walk over's TC, and I do want a challenge, but try to be realistic won't you? 
 
If there weren't so many other issues going on with MM I'd be begging for a solo playlist, But TBH if the game has good pings and things actually work for that half hour, I'll play against whatever I can get! Even if it means getting stomped every other game.  
With all the issues it has finding good or even matches, I suspect they have a lot of hidden stuff screwing with who you end up against. Making the party size part of the equation pretty much irrelevent to their system. 
 
 
One thing I have always wanted for solo players, was a leader board just showing the stats just for games where you have run solo, and only comparing to everyone elses solo matches. Would be cool to see who is the king of the lone wolves.

Sadly lootbox crying/celebrating/begging is 60% of threads. 
 
I've begged and begged for a new forum to be amde to JUST deal with store and lootbox issues. They aren't gameplay related stuff and the story side even has it's own forums. 
Loot boxes and the store is not the game, so why can't they have their own section?

While I agree this is the most likely origin of the swarm, it does annoy me that imulsion can sort of do whatever and create anything, each species in the swarm contributes in a very specific way to their survival. Seems like a stretch to me to imagine imulsion being able to do that so quickly. But alas that's always how imulsion has been in gears.  
 
i do hope TC really goes into detail about the swarms origins and how each creature contributes to their society. I have my fingers crossed hoping that the swarm have a way of reproducing without humans.  
 
Well imo, ending the trilogy without answering any questions about the locoust and their beasts was good, considering the horrible origins of the locoust we ended up getting. I'm glad the games didn't try and bring any of this up.
A fix is coming and will be deployed tomorrow (Friday, Nov. 24) exact time is still being determined but controller issues should be resolved by end of day at the latest. A post will be made on twitter and on this thread when the fix is live. Thanks for your patience.
 
 
Excellent to hear, very good job on the speedy fix! (If not for putting out ANOTHER wonky patch).

Well that IS fantastic news!! You superstar! 
 
Actually having important information posted in multiple platforms? You must be a bloomin' magician to get them to allow you to do that 

Can you maybe have a word with the other guys who do the PR and explain how they could also perform this communication vodoo?
