Mornanoon all

I don't know if anyone here is still playing Titanfall but I thought I'd post this anyway

Update 6 will include 8 vs 8 Pilot Skirmish - no grunts, no Spektres and NO TITANS

Just CoD style (albeit with jetpacks) arena shenanigans

Good idea?

or

Missing the point?

or

Deliberately added to go toe-to-toe with Advanced Warfare?

Full list of changes/additions in update 6 found here:

I think it's a case of why not?

Most players think this will be fun, could add some more life into the game and if it does not get played much, then what harm has it done, can't have cost much to develop?

Also, competing with Advance Warfare? Well unless we see a major overhaul of COD then TF is so far beyond it, its not even in the same league, this however does not mean that COD won't outsell TF because it will, the yearly COD crowd probably missed out on TF.

So it's all good IMO.

I'll play it and I'm sure I'll enjoy it, probably become a bit more campy than current game modes which are effectively anti camping, might give some more use to sniper class also?

I'm really looking forward to trying it out, as much as i love the core game i know there's been a lot of requests for a pilot v pilot only mode on the Respawns forums so the devs are just giving the people what they want.
Because of the nature of the gamemode it's going to make different strategies very viable and i'm looking forward to the new challenge, also it'll be good to test myself in a strict pvp enviroment.
I wouldn't be suprised if this mode becomes a standard for organised cometitive play due to it being a more familiar setup, ala classic TDM.

Looking forward to trying PvP out actually - it should have always be an option

You have to admit it's been supported well by the devs - too many games are dropped like a sack of spuds soon after release

That alone requires your attention

Definately Dela, it's had a title update every month since launch, and the 2 dlc packs with the 3rd rolling out next week i believe.

I firmly believe that if TF was available on PS4 the positivity on this game would be justly deserved and it would be hailed as it's new headline mp game as well, just a bloody shame its exclusive, gamers are gamers, just not fair to restrict a persons choice of game because of the platform it's on.

Totally agree

Let's hope the second installment goes cross plat so it gets the full recognition it deserves

Very excited by this, might well end up playing this more than the standard game modes ( fantastic as it is I always get my A*** handed to me when im in a mech)! Great game

Dela - Can't imagine why someone would mark you down for that last comment , but yeah totally agree , i hope ps4'ers that are interested get the chance to enjoy someday.

Mr Davies - I think it's going to be a very popular mode, just because it'll be much more familiar with traditional fps players, the transition into mech combat can be pretty intense if timed wrong because as much as your a big walking piece of armour, your a big target as well and i find some players do struggle with using the various mechs to their strengths as they just wade in expecting to annhilate anything , which obvs doesn't happen a lot lol, would be funny if they had a stat for average lifetime/eject mode in a Titan.
Also the no AI means that more traditional target aquisition will be the order of the day again which will help out certain minded players as i've lost count of the amount of kills i get on pilots that are so busy going rambo on bots i get an easy kill on them !

Just noticed some posts on my Twitter feed saying the new update has been released early and is out today?
Don't suppose anyone can confirm this if they are near there X1?

My son was on it earlier but I've not checked myself

Yep update live for PC too but theres a small problem

Cannot get into a game

Yeah games were weird tonight, but gotta be honest, not impressed, it's COD in space with camping or ninja jumpy superheroes. No in between.

Just annoyed me and when I went back to normal it felt much better.

Didn't get a chance to play the mode last night as when i had some time, it looks like i was right in the middle of the update 6 issues which wouldn't put me into a game lobby, so just decided to get on with some Metro.
Seems thats all been fixed though so i'll get a chance to check it out tonight.

The more i think on it Cam, i've got a feeling i'll prefer the core game experience as well as certain weapons/burn cards/pilot abilities are going to be very effective or not at all. The game was balanced with Titans and A.I in mind so having a mode that removes them is bound to unbalance some aspects of the game.

Either way i'll try it soon as make my own impressions from there..

Don't get why anyone is excited for a team deathmatch mode with no AI or titans? More to the point I don't get why this has been a popular request amongst gamers. That's why COD and every other ten a penny FPS exists for this type of game. The clues in the name, titans are an essential part of the experience in ky opinion. Without them the game would still play well and would still have the great maps but not be the same experiance.

That's how I saw it also, it was not bad, just was no where near the same level of pure fun. I'm also a novice at the parkour so for those who can fly about like Kung Fu masters from space it might be ok. Not for me, I'll play it with a squad just for a crack but I wouldn't go on it myself

Personally i think the vocal minority that shouted loudest for it, are probably classic fps players that have been taken out of their comfort zone, as between the movement mechanics, verticality , Titan Combat, and AI target aquisition, i think it's been too much of a learning curve for some , and they can't rationalise why they are dying using their old tried and tested fps methods , so have cried out for what they know..

Like i said though i'll try it out and form an opinion once i've tried it, i'm pretty decent at the parkour so i am looking forward to seeing how it plays out. If i don't like it , then back to core modes it is!

Other thing is this, with only 6v6 the maps seen huge because there is no drones or action going on to see elsewhere. I think they shoulda gone 10v10

Oh and a stupid mistake in the coding, as when you select your load outs you have to select your Titan load out as normal. Stupid that they missed that in testing

LOL yeah that is pretty lazy but i suppose it was the easy option,

another thing i know that will be a bit off will be tier 2 pilot kit, it'll only have 2 viable options, being the Icepick and Dead Mans Hand, as the rest of the options are titan specific. DMH in particular could get annoying if you don't do your best to remember Rah's Al Ghul's words 'mind your surroundings' :)
