i was browsing gears of war forums the other day and come up accross this. Looks like the standbyers who get caught are banned from public matches. A list of all fixes so far coming in TU3 according to Epic folks - Epic Games Forums but someone who knows he sucks at GoW2 will be disipointed and make his life goal to figure out how to standbye because without host and standbye he just sucks. So now he ruins it for all the people who are actually good at the game and dont need to standbye. Looks like the ranking system is also changed.
