      • Pwood626

        Isn’t Epic still in a partnership with Microsoft for GOW? If so, that will probably be a day VERY far off in the future.

        Level 100 will net you Wings next to your Gamertag on the player list instead of a level number and the Veteran Gear achievement

      That’s awesome, Epic is continuing support on Gears 2. A lot of people should have their Wings in no time.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/NinjaDeathstarVideos Chuckymaaate

        yeah its good but… i cant even find a game on it :(

        • exissPL

    • Jawmuncher

      Nice to see this.
      Hope you do more support for gears 2 in the future as well. Would love to get my wings.

      Looks like im getting my wings! could this possibly be a way to counter mw3’s release? never

    • private matt kitsune

      awesome! this will make it a little simpler to get to level 100 in gears 2 and get the ‘veteran gear’ achievement

    • Sergio Gálvez Guerrero

      20x XP is too little for high lvls! We want 25x or 30x XP, please! :|

    • Leisure Muffin

        • Kage D

            Private matches earn less experience than public matches.

    • xs0uthpark

    • NexusG

      Tickers would help with the grinding … but it doesn’t seem so long ago that we had them. Just have to do some regular grinding instead.

    • Anonymous

      Good, but I never seem to be able yo get any games on GoW2 other than Warzone…and I’m shite at that lol…

    • Captainvark0

      played last night and didnt get the 20xp bonus! why not!!!

    • MrIncredible63

      Glad I saw this. I would have cried if I’d missed it. MUST. HAVE. WINGS!!!

    • mr.shock

      im greatful for the 20x but next time could we have something higher please? 25, 50 or 100 somethin along those lines please

    • Danbrown75

      cant get a game in gears 2 online in australia. 20x xp needs to be added to all multiplayer modes and not just ranked. all i can get is a game full of bot for 250pts.

    • http://twitter.com/NicholasZiglio Nicholas Ziglio

      There isn’t a full x20 XP in KOTH… or atleast me an loads of others weren’t nearly getting 20 xp

    • JDK

      Na, I want 100x for one kill so can help gain numbers for 100,000 kills achievement.

    • H8rfree

      What days does the 20 x xp start? Right now it’s 2 x xp. At least on Annex. 

    • Anonymous

      When does the 20 x XP start? I play Annex and have notice onlly 2 x XP. Not 20. Double is good though!

    • lopezefrain

      Good maybe now the game will be worth playing now actually let me rephrase that the multiplayer will now be worth playing the story and horde were awesome in this game

    • SR

      Nobody’s online,waiting,waiting ……………so whats the point of 20x XP.

      season pass rule!!!

    • Chris

      20x experience doesn’t help shit if you don’t have all the map packs. For some reason, anyone who doesn’t have All Fronts is barred from joining any online games. I do so enjoy buying a game and being told I’m not allowed to play it.

    • Anonymous

      Does any one know what game mode you must play to get 20 x xp? I am currently playing Annex on Social (you don’t have to wait as long to be matched up) and it appears to be 2 x xp. Do I have to play on ranked?

    • Tony

      thank you :) and please have more exp events! u guys reset me twice >.> :(

      played all week. every game mode. annex, gaurdian, warzone, koth, submission, execution, wingman! EVERYTHING. played both social, and ranked. as of today 11/11/11, there is no 20 x xp. not ten!!! not five!!! at the most two!!! which is okay, except that it is announced as twenty. i was going to go trade my gow2 in this week but heard and seen the promise of 20 x xp. so i kept it. how disappointed i am. game stop, here i come!!!!! to anyone else, go ahead and try. multiple times if you like. like i did. you wont get 20, 10, or 5 times xp. just letting you know in advance!!!!! getting 20 x xp this week is just  like getting cake in Portal!!!!!

    • Aacoupon85

      just like the cake in Portal, it’s promised to you but you wont get it…..

    • Aacoupon85

      don’t believe me. read the other post. better yet, play for yourself. you’ll see. thanks for nothing epic!!!!!!

      All the hard work was a waste, wanted to play gears 2 to complete the little that was left to get the veteran gear achievement.. already had the 100 rank, just had to win 1 match each in snowblind maps.. logged in and the war journal reset! back to rank 1 !!

      keep letting us know when the next big xp event for gears to is. Thanks

    • Dissapointed

      To the developers and organizers of this so called “Gears of War 2 20 x xp” event scheduled for 11/7/11-11/14/11. I believe you owe your fans, gamers,  and also the other sites and forums that post and relay your info for you, an  apology (or at least an explaination of why there was not a 20 x xp as presented or advertised). Plus a real 20 x xp event. You may even want to up it up to 25 or 30 x xp. I personally am disappointed. I played all week, since Monday, hoping to gain at some point close to 20 x xp. Never did it happen. I played daily. Even this morning. Never was there any thing close to 20 x xp. Sorry I missed the other events. I did happen to play Horde a while back (June or July) when i noticed that Sires had lancers. I thought it was glitch and ceased to play. I later found out Epic was having and event…and I had missed it. Sucks for me. Turns out Epic was having an event of some kind. Since then I scoured the internet(which led me to this site)  to see what occasions and when Epic would have the next of event. See, I happen to be a completionest. I won’t get the next game until I completely beat the one before it. I started this last monday as a lowly 68, and was able  to get to a  lowly 71. In a weeks time. The most xp we received was 2 x. I have a job and family and game time is limited. I created a gears of war 2 20 xp event space in my home. Meaning I made it so I could play uninterrepted until I completed my goal of 100xp. 20 x xp would have been great. You see, the 20 times the xp i did get would have easily put me close the to the 100 mark. Then I could have just finished my achievements and moved on to purchase gears 3. It is the only reason I played Gears 2 this week. Otherwise I would have been done. I was/am ready to sell it on Ebay. Easily could have gotten 10 bucks plus shipping (better than game stop) before the holidays.
       
      EPIC YOU LET ME DOWN….
       
      Will you make it up to me and the other gamers out there who truly would like to move on to GOW3 but would like to get “wings” first so we can unlock the gears of war 3 content by hosting a real 20 x xp event really soon. Like now?
       
      If so…GREAT.
      If not….No more GOW for me. Period.
      Christmas is coming and GOW 3 will not be on my list!!!

      • Jordan Burnham2013

        i agree with Epic we deserve more than this. Come on we really want to get our wings.

    • One Reality x

    • Jordan Burnham2013
