Yeah, my stats take a serious hit when I am her. I have a tough time finishing off Titans and I constantly do the most damage to a Titan only to get an assist in LTS. It seems like every time a titan ejects in the doomed state I never get the kill.

It's hilarious that as a Northstar main, I get the most mileage out of self-damaging close range, lol.

Hitting Pilots with NS is a pain in the ass cause you have zero splash and curvage while the fucking Tone fucking shoots in the fucking general direction of a pilot and fucking everything fucking works for her.

Haha, I believe it. I am probably yelling shit! fuck! damnit! more often with her than any other Titan.

Maybe Respawn could take a page out of Rainbow Six's book and allow Northstar to lean around corners. That would be cool.

Switch Tone and Northstar's wall and tether. I would be okay with the pilot slaying 40mm cannon when she's left without her shield of invincibility from afar.

Benchy going to town with Tone.

2 questions after watching:

How long does the Salvo core missile barrage stay alive? Until it hits something? He does it twice where he fires straight into the air and the missiles keep moving forever until he targets something.


Also I've never noticed music in game and I play on a loud 7.1 system.

And tone has the worst Melee execution!

It's a joke when you are damaging a tone, long range, and she pulls a 180 and blindfires in your general direction, walking away with the kill on the first on second shot. Most of the time they cant even see me on the killcam. Don't even get me started when her sonar it up. I don't care if she had that as her specialty but it's one of the many things she's great at. Very little effort is required to do well as tone, compared to the other titans.

I use Ronin. In fact, I can use any Titan and win. Titan battles are like chess - strategy plays a big role. Normally, I am about 3 steps ahead of everyone when it comes to predicting movement and actions.

Not trying to brag, but I played a TON of strategy games back in the day. Most people use Titans like idiots.

Tone is balanced, and the people complaining simply don't like her. That's the truth of the matter. Northstar needs buffs if anything.

Hope we get some major updates to this game in the future. It's a shame that they haven't released a comprehensive dlc roadmap, quite disconcerting in fact. Lots of games have a similar free content dlc model, yet most of them make a point of outlining what fans can expect.

I really love the game but honestly I won't stick around if we're not waiting for anything good, if that makes sense. A single map at a time isn't enough, we need substancial expansions of content, Titan's, weapons etc. released for free if you want to hold the audience. I'm almost G10 now and while I'll keep playing this indefinitely I'm sure something else will come along and capture my attention aware from the game, if Respawn aren't injecting enough content.

Yeah, this is the killer. Tone can just plink plink away with the 40mm in a 15 shot magazine behind a shield. While if you miss one shot with Northstar it takes another 4-5 seconds to charge the shot back up so it will actually do some damage. Also, after you miss the shot you gotta check your surroundings again because you are most likely getting flanked.

The railgun travels too slow also, takes forever to get to the target and makes it tough to hit someone that is moving especially if you are in a tight window.

This is on sale for 31.99 (GCU discount added) at Best Buy. Ugh. That plus a 5 coupon I have brings it down to less than 30 including tax. I am so tempted to get this due to playing it during the free trial. It was fun but I fear sucking at it. I was decent on the ground where I didn't sit still. I would wall run and grapple behind people before they saw me and end up taking 3-4 out before moving to the next area but I really, really suck in titans.

Don't fear "sucking" it's called learning.

You can be totally fine using your Titan passively with enhanced Titan Ai a Titan can really be strong against Pilots and Titans when you accompany it.

If you were able to take out groups of 3 or 4 and survive using those kind of tactics, you sound like a better player than me, and I feel like I'm not half bad at this game. With some Last Titan Standing practice under your belt, you'll be very familiar with all the TItans, and which strategies to use as and against them.

The one thing that kinda sucks about Scorch is that you absolutely have to use the turbo kit.

Its funny how every pro titanfall player and anyone good says too that tone is too versatile and good but you, a random (console?) player say naaah tone is fine and balanced because I win most scrub tones in pubs with it?

Easy target; that can be true, but remember that North Star is a malicious long-range god. A sniper. It can do some truly evil shit with that hover in the right hands, in the right situations.

Even short range, you can pull off some nice ambush vectors & other surprises.

But sure; North Star is probably least effective at short range. Do not play rock-em-sock-em with Scorch.

So I wrote the above back in this thread http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthre...1272121&page=4 and Rayme replied about the Railgun but what has been changed since TF1? It isn't hitscan, it still has a slow projectile speed, it still has dropoff and it still requires a multi-second charge up to do full damage. Maybe I'm not seeing the changes to make it "sing" but other people notice the change?

It's funny how you some random (human?) are making assumptions about my skill level and dedication to this franchise. Also, I don't recall Titanfall being picked up by MLG or any other esport league. Therefore there aren't any pro Titanfall players, just popular youtube folks. Secondly, anyone that is actually skilled at the game doesn't have problems with Tones. Nothing wrong with having a versatile Titan for beginners.

So, stop yapping and throwing baseless insults around. Tone has been nerfed twice already.

Buzz off.

P.S. Provide sources for "every"

Yeah, actually that was when I was done. I hadn't played for about 3 months, and he ends up calling my mobile (got my number from a mutual friend) about that set. My ex was going through an abortion, I go there after telling him I'd let him win, and I end up too late to make sure she wasn't alone the night she was in pain.

Straight up deleted my YouTube account after that.

He invited me to join when Heart of Gaming opened but I hadn't played at all since then.

I probably would have lost anyway, but he was rude af irl after I essentially walked from Putney to Piccadilly to give him the satisfaction. Realised I didn't like the FG community.

Whenever I get around to buying an Xbone, I'll definitely snag the original TF. Chassis, weapon, and ability selection seems heavenly!

The longer time to kill would be nice, too. In the last couple matches I just played, I died three times immediately after phasing out (screen was white and the vapors had already appeared), I guess from latency, but people can die so quickly, it's insane!

I did do that in between every match I played this morning, and it still gave me the bad speeds.
