I feel like there's not much difference between the inputs for third-person shooters. Especially Gears, where the aiming is already just point-in-the-general-vicinity-and-it-dies. Only thing I could see it helping is spinning around fast.

I never had an issue playing OG Gears PC or even Ultimate Edition against KBM users. Gears is a game that a KBM just doesn't provide that much of an advantage over a controller.

Seems like PC guys can spin the camera around much faster than console guys EVER could. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. Rooting for the console pros.

Almost every PC Gears player I've seen can't stand up to those that play on console, bring those chumps on over.

This is great news for me. I've been playing with a controller against keyboarders on Windows 10 since release with no complaints.

This is fine as an optional playlist. But there should never be PC cross play in Ranked competitive at all. I play this on console to get away from hackers and cheaters.

That's because wallbouncing just doesn't work with kb+m. Aiming is much better with a mouse in Gears games, but moving around is awful.

I take it you're not familiar with how these games play at high levels? Spinning around fast is extremely useful (for wall-bouncing in particular), which is why most experienced players tend to use very high sensitivities. I can't imagine how being able to move the camera very quickly for map movement while still having the precision aiming advantage of a lower sens would be anything but a clear advantage.

Do we know if console players will always be playing against pc players [in this playlist] or will it be a mixture?

Because we might just end up playing against console players and never know the difference.

Erm... wall bouncing (and general movement) is significantly easier on PC. Not to mention aiming with the Longshot/Embar.

I think this is great news; and I'm pleased The Coalition are at least willing to give it a go on public servers, rather than throwing out a typical statement along the lines of "it's something we're constantly looking at" etc.
