Titanfall |OT2| Press X To Respawn

Fuck H3 achievements. When developers make difficult achievements, they ruin the game because people will grind, cheat, or just fuck around to get em. Easy achievements - or better no mp achievements - prevent this and keep everyone playing normally.
That's why CoD doesn't have multiplayer achievements, which makes it kind of odd that Titanfall does have them. But how do you get non-multiplayer achievements in an online only game?
 
I don't think there should be MP achievements period. But as for achievements in general, they shouldn't all be easy otherwise it defeats the purpose.
Easy better than annoying and game shifting in my opinion.

I just the achievements should be complimentary to what everyone already is doing in the game.
 
Initial MFD impressions after 2 matches (Overlook and Boneyard):

  • Switch happens when a mark is killed. Turnover has ranged from 3 seconds to about a minute.
  • Very team oriented. Ones who stick together and have Titans tend to do much better.
  • Been a mark 3 times. First time survived and even took out those who were after me. The other two times I was killed rather quickly on Boneyard by a very well coordinated team, while my team was all over the place. Also didn't help that half the team quit rather quickly, and thus lost 4-10 (2 marks my kills and MVP).
  • Boneyard has some of the best nooks and crannies to hide in to keep from being taken out if you have a good shield of a team.
  • Points go to Marks Killed and Marks Outlasted.
  • Overall I love the mode. Very fun and not too unbalanced as long as the other team doesn't all call in Titans early on. Will be a shame to see it go when Wingman LTS rolls out.

Matchmaking is better, though it still needs some improvements. Other team on Boneyard was still a bit stacked in lvl and gen.

Carbine accuracy has taken a bit of a hit. Can still do ok in short bursts at long range. Noticed a definite hit when trying to shoot rodeoing pilots after I ejected and they are beyond the initial eject positions (didn't save them :p). Still feels good though.

Love Jeeves' voice.

Some of the insignia challenges are hilarious. 'Die 10 times when ejecting' for example.

Haven't seen how to unlock Titan Burn Cards yet. Not seeing them for the challenges.
 
I just got an XB1 like 2 weeks ago so not too sure of how these patches go lol
Unlike the 360 where games ran the disc version and then applied the patch from your hard drive, the X1 allows devs to fully replace the game with the newest version on the hard drive (and games DL'd from Xbox Live are always the latest version with all patches/content updates implemented).

While this is good for a variety of reasons, it also means that very large updates are pretty common.

Your Xbox will periodically check and download updates in standby though.
 
MP achievements work when it doesn't change your play style, example win 50 pilot hunter matches is fine, 2 for 1 with a spartan laser is not, I got that one legit also.

Unlocking all weapons and upgrades was alright, it made you use some of the other weapons and you didn't have to play any different, well the arc cannon was a little bad...
 
Played two matches of Marked for Death and it is a ton of fun. Liking a lot of the new changes they've made and the new stuff add is nice.
Yep, the game feels amazing.

Btw, I got my first Titan card. Amped Cluster Missile from completing Top Gun(III)-Cluster Missile. They aren't listed on the challenge rewards yet though, so step on that Respawn :)
 
woah, wait, what?

MFD is being removed when Wingman LTS is put in?
To the best of my knowledge, they are part of a limited run. I suppose it's their solution to cut down on the fracturing of the player base, and they'll likely cycle between the two or eventually add them to the variety packs.

And yes, that means that [again to the best of my knowledge] MFD isn't a part of the Variety Pack playlist.
 
New main menu is siiiiiiiiiick.

Anyone on PC want to play? Tag is: MrStabby6

Huh Wah? I've got the Gooser insignia even though I did the easier version of it I'm sure!

Had one match of market for death so far, it's rather fun and keeps you on the move.

Somewhat feel that half of the time my team will play like it's team dm and ignore the target.
 
I'm going for dinner but hope to have a longer look through the new patch after. It added some text related to new game modes. These strings were not in the data before today's patch.

Was wondering when they'd do a hack-centered game mode. Hopefully we'll see something by August.
 
Just load my first game on Swampland, loaded insanely fast (YES) But the water was all black and grey with no textures. Not the best start.

Join next match and its 3 vs 6, score 150 to like 50. Such an improvement on that matchmaking.

They've definetly broke the water somehow, loaded Lagoon and there is NO water at all on the map hahaha.

Haven't been on any water levels yet and I'm XB1, but I'll look into it later and see if that's a widespread issue.

Matchmaking is still needing a lot of work. Won a ton of campaign rounds in a row due to the higher gens, most of us 50 or close to it, stomping on a bunch of low levels.

Good news from that experience is that there's a lot of new players out there. Hopefully the community continues to grow and plays the objective-based playlists.

Same here, but that was because people kept leaving.

I also came across a guy who was trying to abuse the satchels, but he failed miserably. I guess the range is fine now. Or he was just bad.

i wonder how much this has to do with lacklustre matchmaking, or lacklustre player base.

for example, i just played a game of CTF [2 minutes ago] where the entire other team was at least gen 3.

my team had myself [gen 5], and another gen 5, and the rest complete noobs.

the opposing team [highly stacked], failed to play the objective and has a piss poor match.

whereas my team focused on the objective and mopped the floor with them.

i don't know if other people notice this, but outside of attrition, i find people's failure to play objectives the biggest reason a huge divide exists between teams when the dust settles.
 
Going to try the new water graphics setting to see if it fixes the problem. Currently on High and broken so setting it to Low might fix it? Fingers crossed. Happy the game loads insanely quick now.

Not run into a satchel spammer yet but this sounds good to me!


Edit: Ahh Titanfall.exe has stopped working whilst loading Angel City. Forgot why I hate patch days.

i loves my satchels, not completely happy about this change but they WERE a little TOO effective... :/
 
Haven't run into satchel users yet, but I'm glad the AOE has been tuned. Might be up for a match a bit later. Will give a time if I have the opportunity.

Edit: Been rolling with the Carbine all day, and the thing is still pretty beast once you get used to the new recoil. The lower clip size hasn't been much of an issue.
