Gears 2 Matchmaking Tips From The Source

Rod Fergusson, Senior Producer of Gears of War 2, has seen his fair share of people having problems with Gears’ matchmaking.

After working with the team, he has a couple suggestions for you:

  • If you’re experiencing long delays (longer than 2 minutes) or you’re seeing your matchmaking search restarting over and over again, please try a different playlist as that indicates a possible population issue with the currently selected one.The problem seems to be heightened for parties of 1 and parties of 4 so please try to invite at least one friend into your party before matchmaking.

    Try to have five people if you can.

  • After a match, if you’d like to continue to play with the 9 people you just played with, simply press Y to look at the previous match stats and press X to invite them all to your party so you can continue to play in a Private match if they accept. Private matches, while not arbitrated, gives you the flexibility to set exactly which map and mode you want to play along with customizing other aspects of the game.
  • And as always, please ensure that your router is set correctly so that your NAT is considered “Open” by Xbox LIVE as “Moderate” and “Strict” NATs make Xbox LIVE matchmaking more difficult. There are many guides available online to walk you through the process of correctly configuring your router for Xbox LIVE so I won’t go into the specific details here.

Freakin’ win. That’s the way to let your userbase know what’s going on: other devs take notice!

    Well I've ranked up to the 4th rank. and considering that i win 50%+ of my games and i score an average of 1100 points per game has something to do with it. Whether its my win ratio or number of wins, or number of wins calculated with my points…thats my only guess.

    I have another tip for matchmaking. Take your GoW2 disc and go to your nearest gamestop and trade it in for credit towards Left 4 Dead 🙂

    If you look at the stats of GoW2 majority of the games are currently Horde mode. its much harder to find a versus style game currently without a full party. You will find games almost immediately if you search for horde…and you're more likely to connect to a good host.
