Pretty much how I feel. I mainly supported TF2 for as long as I have because nothing like it and I'm hot for giant robots. Respawn is cool though.

Just finished the campaign... finally.

So epic.

The credit sequence was a great touch!

So what's with the awful lag for the last week or so?

I've been playing since launch and it's never been this bad (Australia here).

Titanfall 2 is loads of fun! Although only as a casual play anytime grind out levels kind of game.

I've never played the original, is it still populated enough to get games on PC?

Naturally, as with anything here but maybe these especially, there is no guarantee that any of these are going to be released, and I'd actually be surprised if any of them were at all since they all seem to be just test designs with so many similarities to existing skins.

Competitive should be bottom barrel in terms of concerns for Respawn. This game, given the very nature of Titans, will never ever satisfy whatever fledgling comp scene this game has, nor should it attempt to. I'd rather they side with the ideas they got so right in the first game. I want it to be an unbalanced mess with lots of overpowered options for people to pick. I want Titan customization back and I want Titans to feel like bad asses and not walking kill streaks who need batteries to continue.

Frothy is just a narrator of that video, the opinions are not his own. He explicitly stated that at the beginning of the video AND in the description.

Honestly, seeing some of the warpaints on other guns (specifically the G2 "Masterwork") makes me wish they would have sold them as a Shader/Texture Pack that can be applied to multiple weapons.

Getting matched against a stack when your randos cant get over 5 kills




"30 ping" that feels like Im playing on someones wifi a block away. Awful. Just got off Overwatch and not a hitch.

Re-installed a couple of days ago and I've been playing Frontier Defense...

I'm hooked to this game again. Best FPS this gen just got bester.

I'm diggin' Northstar and Scorch, I think Scorch might be the best overall Titan. He's the Lavar Ball of FD: stay in yo lane!

Is Monarch viable in real games? In FD it's really good with its sustain, but having to survive long enough to get three cores in order to be fully powered up in a real match seems impossible.

You mean bunny hopping? That was how it was in Tf1, you just jump again the moment you hit the ground, but the timing is very tight, like a couple of frames tight. In Tf2 you have to slide the moment you hit the ground, with much more generous time frame, so it is easier than Tf1 to maintain speed, but the additional button required proved to be more difficult on consoles.

Playing it on PS4 Pro at the moment and it's incredible, however the auto aim is a little aggressive. Any way to tone it down?

It's possible, but you have to play conservatively. Overcore and battery boost also help.

Can't believe how many people camp with cloaks. They never seem to do well either so I don't know why they play that style. It is nice though at the start flanking a group of them with stim and taking out 3-4 with executions.

Absolutely! I usually get to 2 but it's possible if you play smart.

Dipped back into this after it appeared on EA Access. Good to finally see Frontier Defence back. Is there any way to select what map you want to play? I'm getting sick of playing War Games.

I hope Frontier News is next week.

Need more updates on Frontier Defense with more maps and maybe Pilot only ones with Aegis upgrades to Tactical Abilities?

Honestly that would be the only way I'd pay $4.99 for any of them, the skins just being on one gun isn't enough to me. Even with the credit boost or whatever it is.

Just picked this up for about $9. The campaign was pretty good.

Still got to get the hold of PvP, and I think horde mode is way too small.

Its not uncommon on PS4 at least

I had several disconnects last night which I believe was a first. It would hang on STARTING SERVER, you'd hear the sound, and get kicked to the main menu.

Do wish that they added a way to ping the goddamn map to indicate to fuckers that those goddamn mortar titans on the other side of the map need taking care of, or that some titans and reavers are going around and are about to hit the harvester from the side


without involving a mic obv

is interesting though...ive experienced the most losses while playing on easy, apparently because looking at map b hard

You'd think that the minimap and audio cues from Davis and Droz would be enough, but yeah, some people just get too caught up in what they're doing. I hate it when I'm in a tank and have to be the one to go after mortar titans.

moments like that are legit why i sometimes regret not picking up the titan thingie that improves their AI when you leave them.

Tbf i never tested the thingie above Regular, but at least up to that level? Heck, can just leave a Northstar or a Scorch in a decent position and go hunt the fuckers down on foot.

Enhanced auto chip is not going to be as effective as a piloted Titan, especially on hard difficulty and higher. Your DPS is never going to be as good as your titan, and auto-pilot is not as good as the computer's AI. You also have a higher chance of dying while on foot. Obviously, you should exit your titan to repair turrets or jump up to where mortar spectres are impossible to hit with your titan, but almost every other scenario is better when you're piloting your titan.

Yah, is what i was trying to say, only ditch the titan if i gotta get to some mortars and it's quicker on foot. Scorch helps a ton there since the thermite arcs.

Also am i missing something or is Legion just dreadfully boring to handle? Every other titan seems to have a bit of a flow with using abilities and the main wep, Legion just seems to be "sit on a choke, rev up, hold that trigger down and pop shield erry time its off cooldown and theres an enemy in front of ya"
