This is not a R6 hate thread, let me get clear first off that i think Gears of War should be ranked FAR below Rainbow Six. I'm just here stating a few facts. This was inspired by reading the news that GoW is getting yet ANOTHER 4 maps, released via DLC:
Rainbow Six Vegas had SO much potential to be the number 1 online game, and to sell a ton more copies. It's so unfortunate that due to their lack of support, missed release dates, and a slow DLC push, they will stay number 2 most played on XBL, and quickly fall down the list when Forza is released.
One of the reasons Gears of War is so popular, aside from its massive ad campaigns, is that their community is CONSTANTLY getting updated on whats going on, what the devs are working on, And their steady and constant releases of needed AU's and DLC. Rainbow Six just doesn't have this support.
I haven't been following GoW much, but from what I've heard and seen from people that have both games, R6 has much more longevity and replayability, and a better multiplayer game in general. But, the difference is, Epic is HUNGRY, their team has a drive to make more content and get a good reputation by satisfying their customers and continuously giving them something NEW and FRESH.
Now, we don't know WHAT Ubi is doing, since they update us what, once a month? Goliath disappeared, and they seem to just be casually doing things with the game, trying things out, adjusting guns, yada yada yada, but again, hey, we'll never know if they're even working on the game anymore since they never respond or make updates on the forums.
So sad, so sad...
