Same as Gears 4.

Do they force you to stick to a region or do you still have the ability to switch regions like in gears 3?

Yup you're forced into regions unless you join on others

The servers are a F#$%n joke. Can not find a single OCE server to play on, so always having to play on sub 180 ping servers.

A big reason why I've chosen not to play this one. They're complete disregard for our parts of the world means they aren't worth our time, I'd prefer to spend it playing games from supportive devs.
No God, know fear. Know God, no fear.

I feel completely reenforced to skip Gears 5 now thanks to what i've read. Thanks for the heads up guys. Between this and the "allies" achievement. Gears 4 is the end for me for this franchise. I'll just go watch the game cinematics on youtube.

Its not dead at all, I get queued into Aussie servers all the time. The only problem is I'm in the UK and 300+ ping is no fun to play lol.

It's disgusting. They've effectively turned Gears into Call Of Duty. All the maps have vantage points that are practically a camper's dream. Most of my games are Lancer-fests with people on both sides camping and crossing. This is the most noob-friendly game in the series by a country mile.

I tried to play on all kind of ranked matches, only could search player for the first few days. Right now, usually search for over 30 mins, max over 1 hour, keep sync with players, but almost never found a lobby...all other modes are fine.

I don't think Coalition is care about people outside US. shock

I play koth mostly but I started rocking smoke grenades and those lancer noobs instantly became less of an issue lol, they can't shoot what they can't see!

I’ve been able to find a few ranked games, mainly in laggy European or American lobbies, just by searching. Seems a lot better than 4 so far (in that I can at least get into a laggy game), but I’m sure that can change.
