Permanent double XP? I guess Gears of War is now officially a Pay-2-Win game.

How is permanent double xp pay-2-win? It's not as if you unlock more weapons or abilities with each multiplayer rank. It's just a number that doesn't mean anything.

Really?

You are effectively paying to gain twice the XP of a normal match played by normal non-season pass players, this is effectively giving you double the progression instead of standard rate if you hadnt of bought it. Therefore you can understand Solamon's view on it being pay-2-win right?, as you are effectively paying to have that advantage over others?

The term "Pay-2-Win" suggests that paying players have certain in-game advantages that give them the edge over other players. However, this is just double xp, and if you've ever played a Gears of War game before, you'd know that leveling your character doesn't give new weapons, abilities, or perks. A person who's rank 1 has the same guns and resources available to him as someone who's rank 100. Rank in Gears of War is just an arbitrary number that doesn't mean anything, therefore offering double xp won't affect the outcomes of matches.

Bragging rights, and for those that care, there are usually achievements tied to multiplayer rank.

Yay, buy the game for full price and then pay another 20 (without knowing what you're getting) for the full game! What fun times we live in!

Thanks to Activison, s****y Elite, and the idiots that bought it, the "season pass" is now an obligatory item included with every release! Cheers!

No, please don't. I'd rather it be left in the game to begin with rather than being charged extra for it later.

Not all dlc is ripped from the game.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

I beg to differ my friend, and that's a good enough reason for me to avoid it.
