So I think I figured out how to fix titans in Titanfall.
In my eyes, the problem with the Titans is that they're kinda underpowered against the pilots. Not on a one-on-one basis, but more in terms of being slow and lumbering huge targets against pilots who are fast and can sneak around and shit.
So I think there should be a Pilot Killer class of titan that has extreme anti-pilot capabilities. Like, vision that highlights them in the FOV and can see them through walls. And maybe a smoke-gun that can fill a room with poisonous smoke (fire?) to take out pilots who hide and pot-shot the Titan.
Like, this thing should be fucking scary for pilots. You see/hear this thing coming, and you run away fast.
Then on top of that there are other classes of titans that all kinda do the rock-paper-scissors thing against each other, but any two of whom can easily take out the Pilot Killer titan, and can take out the Pilot Killer titan by themselves if they coordinate with a pilot or two. These non-Pilot Killer classes should be more or less as vulnerable to pilots as titans currently are.
If they set things up this way, and managed to give us 12v12 combat plus bots, I think Titanfall could finally live up to its promise.
I've pretty happy that BF1 and TF2 tests came out recently. It's great to see the different in those two games and what they offer. I think, regardless of what Respawn does with TF2, I'll be in there day 1, I just love it so much.
