PostSubject: Alpha playlist in Gears of War 3   Thu Nov 03, 2011 2:52 am

So I jumped on Alpha this morning - turned out to be KOTH with 240 on the clock and not much else...

Am I missing something? I'm sure it said something about customisable stuff?

Any ideas?

Quote from Epic:

What is Alpha? Glad you asked. Alpha is a new playlist incorporated into Gears of War 3 that offers players a familiar, yet different experience from our standard playlists. So let’s get right to it and take a peek at all of the ingredients that make an Alpha cake.


Team Size: 4
Gametypes: Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill, Execution
Loadout: Lancer/Gnasher
Weapon Pick-ups: Default with the some custom swaps. See below.
Weapon Respawn: Set to “After Pick-up” with quicker respawn times.


We wanted to see how Gears of War 3 would play out if some of the starting weapons were placed on the maps as pick-ups. I’ll lay it all out for you guys so you can set these swaps up and play Private matches with the Alpha settings if you so desire.
• Gorgon -> Hammerburst
• Boltok -> Retro Lancer
• Scorcher -> Sawed-Off

These are playlist swaps and not map specific. So all you need to do is set up these swaps once and then you can play Private matches with the Alpha settings without having to change it up for every map. Nice!

Something to keep in mind here is that this is only the first version of Alpha and the success or failure of this playlist is predicated upon how much you (the community) play and contribute to it.

does the game type cahnge for quick match as well as ranked? i played a couple of quick matches and the three consecutive matches it was the same gametype. so i backed out, chose ranked, and thats where i was able to vote on the gametype. question, does the gametype rotate randomly in quick matches? or does it stay the same until u back out and search for another quick match?
