image_zpse885e0dfGamecenter ID: ~ TamL ~
Name:
Tam
Level:
2085
Favorite weapon:
Solar Trans-OX
Favorite weapon class: Dual
Favorite gem:
XP 125%
Tips:
Keep improving your skills and everything’s possible. Check out the forum for great guides and advice from friendly members. I wouldn’t have reached the level I am today without the awesome forum community.

I recommend New Game+ to those who’ve mastered everything on the original game, it’s heaps of fun to infinitely level and build up your characters stats. Master dual and the art of dodging as well as directional blocking with heavy for variety. Most of all enjoy yourself and maybe reach for the goal of the forum’s elite God King Club and Pantheon through lots of practice!

Epic Gamer Crotale’s Valentine’s Day Desktop Wallpaper

 on | featured gears of war

Epic Games Forum member “Crotale” has been creating awesome Epic Games fan art for years. I first saw Crotale’s art when Unreal Tournament 2004 was released. Over the years, he and I have shared our artwork with each other personally, on the Epic Forums and on deviantART. Crotale is a devoted Epic Gamer who loves to share his work with other fans and has become a very valued member of the community. His wallpapers grace the desktops of many fans of Gears of War and Unreal Tournament.

Last year, he created this wallpaper is devoted to Gears of War, the Hammerburst and Valentine’s Day. Crotale says, “Pinkburst is a V-Day tribute to all lady gamers out there. But, hey guys, you all can use it, too.” I figured it was time for a repost so you’re ready for the holiday!

 on | infinity blade

Our latest ClashMob Elite member is Epic Gamer Alberto, who is active on our Infinity Blade forums and known as Farfield.  We’ve asked him about his favorite equipment and tips for fellow ClashMob players below:

farfieldavGamecenter ID: Farfield
Name: Alberto
Level: 1016
Favorite weapon: Gelder
Favorite weapon class: Dual
Favorite gem: Titan Break +2
Tips: I recommend all the players around to train harder and harder, get higher NGs and try to improve your fighting skill

You need to get your style: parry, dodge, mixed, the key for getting a better warrior it’s to face harder enemies and measure the battle: time for response, stamina, speed; all that matters and with time and train, and of course love for the game, you’ll become soon on a great warrior!

ClashMob Elite of the Week: Nicolas Scarola

 on | infinity blade

Our latest ClashMob Elite member is Epic Gamer Nicolas Scarola, who is active on our Infinity Blade forums and known as AgentBlank.  We’ve asked him about his favorite equipment and tips for fellow ClashMob players below:

ba3yhehuGamecenter ID: agentblank
Name: Nicolas Scarola
Level: 2077
Favorite weapon: Oathborn
Favorite weapon class: Dual
Favorite gem: Titan Break +2
Tips: I would suggest to put most of your SP in attack. This way fights go quickly, and you will get XP more quickly. I, of course, would recommend dual, because you do the most damage, and if you can master the art of dodging, dual becomes an unstoppable class. And remember, it takes many hours of practice and playing to become a true master of the game.
