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?
