The second Title Update to Gears of War 4 brings a series of interesting new features and improvements, as well as many bug fixes. Unfortunately, the patch also brings its fair share of issues, as gamers report.

We already reported that the GOW4 Title Update 2 causes the game to crash. Players who eagerly waited to get their hands on the patch, have been very disappointed by the update’s stability issues.

As players tested the update, they realized there is no information available about the ranks of their opponents at the end of a match. This is not the first time that Gears of War 4 fans have complained about rank issues. As a quick reminder, gamers have previously complained about being matched up with players who are ranked much higher.

Gears of War 4 Title Update 2 removes ranks

why would you take the ranks away at the end of a match? I don’t understand the point in ranks at all if no one CAN ***** SEE THEM!

Some players are actually making fun of this situation, suggesting that The Coalition removed rank information on purpose.

“HEY TC, WHY AM I BEING MATCHED UP WITH GUYS THAT ARE RANKED MUCH HIGHER THAN ME?” – Players
“Oh no, don’t worry. We’re working on that right now” – TC
*Removes rankings so people can’t complain when they see it*
“All Better. Now don’t forget to buy your Nicaragua supporter pack!” – TC

As funny as such a dialogue may sound, The Coalition did not intentionally removed ranks. The company acknowledged that this is a bug and confirmed it’s working on a fix.

As correctly noted by a few folks in here, this wasn’t intentional. We’re looking into what happened and why this slipped through – I’ve raised it with our team as a bug.

In a nutshell, don’t worry if you can’t see any information on the ranks of your opponents. As stated above, this is caused by a bug that The Coalition will soon fix.
