Horde - jump in/out option.

#1PAL360Posted 4/28/2012 1:49:01 PM

I love this game, its almost the 'perfect' Gears game, but there is something that Epic should have included. Something as basic as a jump in/out option for horde mode.

Its annoying the fact i allways start an horde game with 4 other random guys, and allways end up playing alone :?

agreed. Epic was lazy where matchmaking was concerned. they have always been that way. i have read articles about them saying matchmaking coding takes too long and will hurt the development cycle.

And yet companies like Bungie can manage decent MM with mininal effort. Epic is lazy about the MP aspect for the most part. the want you to think they are really involoved.

i remember it took them a year to set matchmaking horde for 2.

Every HALO game lacks the join-in feature.

I dont think it has anything to do with being lazy. The feature is in the campaign coop mode since Gears 1 and, this time around, is also in competitive multiplayer. Im sure it would be easy to implement it on horde aswell.

I wish they would create a horde playlist for the DLC maps. I own all of them and have yet to play a single game on one.

have EPIC said anything about this?

it's something that Horde desperately requires imo

not speaking specifically about join in feature(though i understand thats what this is about). just Epic's general laziness where MP is concerned.

It pisses me off to think that IF Epic ever implements this, there will be people saying "oh wow! Epic is awesome for adding this feature. They really care about, and listen to their fans," instead of "why the heck wasn't this available from the beginning?"

I agree, it would be awesome to have this feature. It's weird because they actually had it after a while in Gears 2.
