Gears of War Patch and Update

Gears of War fans/owners...Good news! The game is releasing a patch and 2 free multiplayer maps in the next week. One map takes place at a Raven Helicopter's crashsite, while the other takes place inside an eerie museum. The patch is actually available today and will address the following issues:

• Fixed aspect ratio distortion when using VGA cable with 4:3 displays at resolutions higher than 640x480
• Fixed voice issue with new players joining Player Match games in progress
• Players can now get the Achievement for "Dish Best Served Cold" when using Troika turret to kill RAAM • Fixed rare situation where host could loop countdown and never start match
• Fixed rare situation where players could get stuck after chainsawing in multiplayer
• Reduced Grenade Tag melee distance
• Enabled “Strict” NAT check on host to prevent possible connection issues
• Optimized server browser queries to return results more quickly and prevent scroll bars from hiding quality of service icons
• Reduced number of possible revives in Execution to match Warzone
• Removed host name from Ranked match server browser
• Disabled security cameras in Ranked matches
• Ranked matches now require balanced teams (3v3 or 4v4)
• Increased penalty for quitting a Ranked match to -50 points
• Added additional cheat detection code
• Additional housekeeping updates

I'm very excited for the new maps since more locales is never a bad thing and have highlighted in green the improvements that I am really happy about (and red for those which suck). I am pissed that you will no longer be able to find your friends' games and play with them because most people suck at playing this game as a team. EPIC give us a party system for ranked matches such as the one present in Halo 2! I started playing Xbox Live with Halo 2 so I never really appreciated it all- their system and all of that until recently....really amazing. Oh well, enjoy the pictures. And by the way, Gears of War has sold 2.7 million copies!
