Why You Need To Follow Gears Of War's Executive Producer On Twitter

Illustration for article titled Why You Need To Follow Gears Of Wars Executive Producer On Twitter

Gears of War's executive producer Rod Fergusson is exchanging Twitter followers for bonus experience points in Gears of War 2 over the San Diego Comic-Con weekend. He's already in over his head. Let's make him suffer!


If you're a Gears 2 player low on rank, then next weekend is your time to play. Baiting players via his Twitter account, Fergusson made the following offer.

Ok, here's my bribe. The SDCC XP event will be # of my followers divided by 500. So 4000 followers means 8x XP.


Wow, eight times the normal amount of experience? That sure seems like a lot!

As of this writing, Rod's nearly at 5,500 followers. That's 11 times the experience. He's a bit shocked.

Ok, so clearly I wasn't expecting my followers list to grow that quickly. But yes, the higher the number, the more the experience :)

How many Gears of War fans are there out there? The game has sold multiple million copies, right? Let's milk this offer for all its worth. I bet we can make 100 times experience easy.

How can you help? Just follow GearsViking on Twitter.

Thanks to Richard for pointing out the challenge!

I didn't realize people still played Gears of Wars' 2 multiplayer. I know I stopped after a few weeks. It just somehow seemed less fun than the original's, even with all the glitches and host advantage.
