I call bullshit on Epic and Microsoft. They're saying that matching making in Gears of War 2 is working for all but a small percentage of players. They cite as their proof that almost 3 million matchmaking games have been played since launch, excluding private games. Uh, the game sold 2 million copies opening weekend.
So, let's say half of them are on Live, and half of those are playing matchmaking games. That makes the average about 6 ranked matchmaking games per active player. I'm pretty sure the number of times we've said 'fuck it, let's play the bots' while trying to find a game is higher than 6. I would expect the number of matchmaking games to be in double digits by now.
