Next Bonus XP Event For Gears of War 2

Next Bonus XP Event For Gears of War 2

It could be 8x.....it could be 12x.....it's 20x!

Another week, another story going up about Rod Fergusson , the man known as GearsViking on Twitter. Why is this man so important right now? Because the amount of people following GearsViking on Twitter will directly impact the amount of XP for the next Gears of War 2 event.

Ok, here's my bribe. The SDCC XP event will be # of my followers divided by 500. So 4000 followers means 8x XP.The San Diego Comic Con will be running from July 22 through the 25. That's next weekend for those without a calendar in close proximity. As of now (noon on Wednesday), GearsViking has 3,902 followers, putting us in line for the 8x event again.

If he gets 600 more followers, it becomes a 9x event.

If he gets 1,100 more, we're talking about a 10x event.

Are you still here reading? You fool! Get over to Twitter and help a shirtless Dog get the 20x XP event he needs to get his wings! Go! Go!

EDIT: It has only been 24 hours, and GearsViking tweeted earlier today that the event will be capped at 20x XP. Now shirtless Dog can chainsaw Locust in the face and get his wings.

I suck at GOW, I wouldnt even get my wings if it was 100x EXP. I just cant get the hang of 3rd person shooters where a shotgun in the head at close range has only a 20% chance of killing the enemy.

I don't think that Rob knew that twitter messages are public. I imagine this could get out of hand.

"So I only needed three games of guardian to get to lvl 100, thanks Rob"

But I'm still for it!

I really only play this when there is an XP event running. Looking forward to the next one.
Posted on 14 July 10 at 16:23
I'm definitely hoping this turns out to be a 15x or 20x EXP event. If that's the case, I'll definitely be going for level 100, even though I'm level 1.
