Gears of War 4 has been stay for a few days now, and almost every week for Ultimate Edition house owners. Since the early launch, there have been widespread studies of matchmaking points and in-game lag.

The official launch solely managed to repopulate this big, 40+ pages thread on the official forums, as increasingly individuals went in to report their points.

If you’ve been following the sport on Twitch just lately, you’ll in all probability have observed that a few of the huge streamers have been internet hosting scrims and taking part in towards each other, because the higher bracket of the sport’s ability ranking was taking too lengthy to match them with gamers of comparable expertise. As with common gamers, lag pissed off many of those high gamers.

GoldGlove, certainly one of Gears of War four’s high streamers on Twitch, confronted a few of that lag throughout certainly one of his matches. I’ve watched his streams earlier than and know he’s vulnerable to rage when issues don’t go his means, however this time it went past easy shouts and grunts.

As you’re about to see within the video, his opponent takes too many Gnasher shotgun photographs, point-blank, and doesn’t go down, ensuing within the streamer getting sniped by one other participant for standing within the open for too lengthy. Goldy loses it, throws his controller on the desk and takes off his headphones in disgust.

It’s unhappy to see (if not a bit humorous), particularly as a result of this regarded like an Elite controller, too.

Gears of War four is out now on Xbox One, and Windows 10 PCs.
