    :eek3: :eek3:

    I havent played on the tour in over a year but all my buddies who I played with and friends I have met while doing so seem to be super upset :hs:.

    Everyones facebook seems to seal the deal, Gears of War is donezo for competitive Xbox play. Wonder what MLG plans on replacing it with, nothing is at its 'caliber' of game play/entertainment for spectators currently on the circuit :o

    I heard they've been working on MW2 maps/setups for MLG so I'm assuming it'll take it's place?

    The cover/bounce system was soooo smooth on 1, after the release of 2 I just didnt enjoy it any more :hs:

    Just sucks that so many people who plays gears literally have zero chances of playing competitively and being good again cause of how different gears was. I started off on Counter Strike PC so it was always just a new game to me, but people who started off on gears cant seem to be 'excellent' at anything besides gears :hs:

    dunno if you've heard but MLG has partnered up with EA. So i assume all the new competitive games will be EA games. Things like Madden, need for speed etc...

    Yeah it kinda sucks, but EA has the money to keep MLG going at the pace it needs to in order to stay a competitively league worth playing in.

    Supposedly WCG is going to make a return and pick up gears, we'll see if that actually happens :o


    EA's backing is just more guarantee that they'll continue to televise/cover the events by ESPN as well

    halo will always be MLGs flagship game, hell yesterday a MLG free for all playlist was added to halo 3 multiplayer.

    BFBC is a EA game ans that would be fucking awesome to have but its not really MLGs style at all

    Halo 2 was so much fun until all the cheaters came. After that I got really annoyed and stopped playing :wtc:

    They patched the standbying after awhile. But then came force host and whatever. But it wasn't nearly as bad. It was pretty ridiculous for awhile though.
