Video games have changed a lot over the years, and just playing with them can mean making money. In Gears of War, for example, many players earn money by betting and prize tournaments.
If you are a Gears of War player and still don’t know the meaning of the word “betting”, you have come to the right place.
What is betting in Gears of War?
In Gears of War Wager, a “betting game” is defined as a bet between two players competing in a Gears of War game.
Imagine you are about to start a game of Gears of War and a player tells you that he wants to bet on a head-to-head fight and that he will be the winner of that game.
If you accept the bet for an amount of money, say $50, and you lose, you must pay your opponent $50. This is basically what the word refers to, which became popular a few years ago and is rarely unknown to some players.
What generated the bets
Many Gears of War fans have reported changes since the fourth part of the saga. The most remarkable change is the gradual disappearance of clans, which in turn are replaced by competing clans.
Participants are teams of 5 players who participate in Gears of War tournaments. Competing teams are formed by recruiting players mainly through social networks. It is important to note that many competitors are sponsored by advertising brands and that some players are also paid.
Betting has encouraged the creation of tournaments in which participants compete to finish first.
In the Gears of War Pro Circuit in 2018, the first one to win $40,000. Prizes were awarded up to 12th place.
Difference between clans and competitors
The main difference is the number of players, a clan can have 100 members, while a competitive clan has only 5 and a manager leads the team.
In clans the players don’t have much responsibility, but the members of a competing clan have to keep schedules, shoot videos and much more. In other words, a clan is without responsibility for fun, and a competitor is like a job where there is a responsibility factor.
