Gears of War 3: What happened?

I’m extremely open about my love for Gears of War 3. I play this game almost daily, and I manage to have a ton of fun in the process. It simply never gets old!

However, lately I’ve had some major issues with this game. Supposedly after their most recent DLC (Fenix Rising) people who were unable to get the DLC were left on crap servers, while people who were able to get it were given ‘dedicated servers’ to play on. Only these so-called ‘dedicated servers’ didn’t last very long.

When the Fenix Rising DLC first came about, I was in a rough spot and couldn’t manage to purchase it. However, after being thoroughly frustrated with the lack of dedication on the servers I was playing on, I managed to scrounge up enough to get the 800 Microsoft points and a new DLC. Now, don’t get me wrong I was excited for the new characters, weapon skins, and ability to re-up. But, the real reason I purchased the DLC was just to get back to playing on a more adequate server where I wasn’t lagging around or shooting enemies point-blank in the chest with a shotgun only to watch them escape unscathed.

Now? I have the DLC and no more dedicated servers. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s noticed this, being that every game I play I have trouble dealing with the BS and my connection is extremely good. I really just want to know, why take them away?! People without the DLC were punished and basically forced into getting it, and now we can barely play on these crap servers.

I love Gears of War 3 but I find myself playing other games more often lately because of this non-sense. When it’s fixed I’ll come back all smiles, but until then I can hardly bare just one game. PLEASE, fix your servers!

Anyone else feel the same as I do? Let me know in the comments below!
