Title: Boosting Gears 2 XP
Post by: Jaynestown on September 05, 2010, 01:40:28 PM
I was just reading this tip on True Achievements:

http://www.trueachievements.com/a31820/veteran-gear-achievement.htm?gamerid=62837

If we could get 10 people wanting to play Gears during this XP event and get us all in one Social game we could mega boost the XP and all reach level 100.

Any takers?

You really needed to ask?  :)

I'm in.

There are two problems as I see it:

1) We need to find 10 people who'll be happy to boost and spend a few hours doing so

2) We need to get two groups of 5 in one social game... once we're in we can stay in ad infinitum

So far we have you and me, and I'm sure Fuzzy and Fizz will be up for it...

6 more anyone?

Dark, Sambo and Failed might want in too, Robox (Lee) will no doubt be up for it.

If you're on tonight before me can you see who'll be up for it. I've kind of had enough of trying to reach level 100 legitimately... bored of Guardian on Pavillion, Horde with torque bows etc.

Roll on Gears 3

Some Wings instead of a number for your rank and an achievement, if you've won matches on the necessary maps of course.

I'm quite happy to play Guardian and Horde to get it to be honest, only 11 more levels to go, should easily do it in the next couple of days.

I will do it legitimatley if I have to, I wantt the bonus for Gears 3, but if there's a quciker way of doing it what's the harm, we've given Epic more than enough of their time!

We're not, only manged to finish wave 1 of Horde twice.

I've got to be honest I'm absolutely fed up to the back teeth of this game now, these fucking Torque Bows are just really pissing me off :(

At this point in time (and I know it'll probably change) I just can't be arsed with trying to get to level 100 anymore.

Markav's just told me off for whinging too much, which I know I do, but I am just getting fed up with it now. I'm worried trying to get to level 100 is going to eventually put me off Gears 3.  >:(
Title: Re: Boosting Gears 2 XP
Post by: Jaynestown on September 05, 2010, 05:25:52 PM
I've had enough, I'm all Gears'ed out. Was hoping to reach level 80 by the end of the event but as I'm unlikely to be on tomorrow I'll have to stick at 78. I just hope the next event is x100 XP or or something 'cos I can't see myself reaching 100 at this rate, I've just lost interest. It didn't help that the Horde this time has been awful, I want the Sire's back, torque bows suck!  >:(

i had an great time playing BC2, i found an awesome sniper spot and murdered loads of people with getting almost 200 Marksman points a kill i was that far away. I also got 2 achievements, i'm pretty snug with the other classes now (no longer just a medic :P ) except Assault which i've barely played as.


i was gonna jump in with MV at first, but he was playing conquest, which i'm not a fan of yet. rush all the way

i also did a cheeky no-scope on a guy that snuck up behind me, i heard in my turtle beaches and spun round quick and there was that special moment when you know perfectly that your gonna kill this guy and bam blew his brains all over the place (infact he totally exploded into giblets like gears). I did a little jig on his brain goo and ran off singing.... FACT

running straight? don't forget to zigzag :)

tis just practice, not just on BC2 but the more games you play the better you will become overall. Tis just wether you want to put that effort in, if not, you will always be easy bate for 'pro-tard' snipers :/

should of give me a shout I would rather play rush but when on my own I find conquest better to play. I assumed you would be playing gears tonight anyway

sorry i didn't join the boosting session marty but i would have found it boring, i found it much more fun on horde last night. I am close to rank 86 now and i should get to 90 at least by the end of tonight, should make it to 100 by the end of the next xp event. I'm just not fully bored of gears 2 yet, and i'm enjoying the challenge of getting to rank 100. ps well done for getting past 80 marty  :)

Hi Dave, that's ok, I'm just fed up with it now, and I can't stand Horde with the Torque Bows, I just keep dying over and over and over again. I was all Gears'ed out last night!

Excellent, pleased you'll get it legitimately Craig, I'm up to 96 now, boosted 18 levels in just over 3 hours. It is really boring but at least once I get there I won't have to worry about any future XP events, I can just play it for fun as and when I want to :)

Thank god, level 100 achieved. Time for bed. Good luck to everyone else who is chasing it, boosting isn't as much fun as I thought, but it's still a hell of a lot quicker than doing it properly.

Roll on Gears Of War 3  ;D

Well done Craig :)

Don't get me wrong everyone, I'm not proud of boosting it but I was so angry with myself on Sunday night for wasting an entire weekend playing on my Xbox (I didn't leave the house and put off visiting my brother) that I just couldn't face the thought of waiting for another 2 or 3 XP events to try and get there and end up really resenting the game. I wasn't doing it for the achievement (I hadn't won a ranked match on Grindyard so didn't think it would pop), I just wanted to get my wings so that I could have whatever bonuses are available for Gears 3.

Anyway, it's done now, and I wasn't the only one. Hopefully the ranking system for Gears 3 won't be so hard, and pigs might fly!

Don't get me wrong, I still love the game, I just got really fed up of chasing the rank, the game was becoming a chore rather than a pleasure and I didn't want it to ruin my enjoyment of it and Gears 3. I can now play it when I want to, rather than when Epic tells me I should be playing it (if you see what I mean).

If it was no longer a pleasure for me to play for rank i would have boosted too, but it still is a pleasure for me. I can see why you got pissed off with it though and i don't blame you at all, just that i have enjoyed chasing rank that's all and i wanted it to carry over to the next xp event so i had a good reason to play non stop again for a few days. Won't be as much fun without you guys though, cos next time around i think only me, fizz and robox19 will still be playing as the rest of you have either got your wings or can't be bothered to chase them any more. I am only gonna play during the xp events though or on our game nights, otherwise it WOULD be too much. p.s I can't wait for gears 3 either

I know the feeling JT. There was no way I was getting my wings with out boosting this last event, And the fun really had gone out of the game, But as soon as it popped that I'd reached level 100, The relief Just felt great, That I carried on playing the game knowing I could go back to being sh*t and not worry about it.
