With the Beta it got to the stage where I was purely leaving my Titans on auto mode as it was just too much fun as a pilot.

I think playing Titanfall without the Titans would be like playing COD without the guns

The very reason I feel Titanfall is so popular right now is because it's basically everything that COD isn't, I think it would be awful to move closer to what was done with the COD games

Then again I have no problems with people being given an option to do whatever the hell they want in private matches

I think anyone whose played the beta for a while will recognise that it's very different to COD. Fluidity of movement for starters, which is what Brink seemed to be aiming for but ultimately failed to achieve. I think some games will naturally gravitate to people abandoning their titans and having them as back-up guardians.

I understand why some might want a mode without titans
because of games like halo and battlefield were as soon as someone gets into a tank or a fighter jet of some type it then becomes very hard to get them out especially if the player is a veteran of the game
and it turns some people off the game very quickly
but by the looks of titanfall it was design in mind that their are lot of way to get players out the titans and it not like battlefield were their is no were to hide as players can just blow the buildings up
a titan does not make you an invincible tank and sometimes it makes it easy for others to kill you
but I do disagree the game without titans would not be cod I don,t see my head getting instantly snipped off just because I stuck it out a door for half a second like on cod ghosts

I have a ps4 and I must say titans fall does look good even if their is no single player story its the one game Im disappointed the ps4 did not get
but we have been promised titans fall 2 which is nice

Dont get me wrong guys, im not saying I want to get rid of the titans, just that in the process, I think respawn have created another game for themselves, to go alongsode TitanFall if you will. I expect this game engine to start cropping up in other titles.

Unless they license and sell the engine (which is a modified version of Source) then no I don't think we will see other developers using it

That's the funny thing it uses the Source engine. I wonder how long it'll take for people to complain (like they did/do with COD) about how the game is running on an engine made over ten years ago. Are valve developing a Source 2 does anybody know?

I haven't played the beta but looking at videos I'd question whether removing the Titans would unbalance the game. Lots of skirmishes seem to center around titans so localising the battles removing that might scatter players.

Tbh, Source is a cracking engine, more than enough for PS4 and X1 games, it can easily handle render resolutions up to and over 1920x1080, but due to the PS4/X1 being essentially capped at 1080p, theres no need for a more powerful engine, its got all the lighting and alpha capabilities that any game will need over the next 5-7 years, its only real hinderence is its texture resolution cap, but since its so easily modifiable, devs will likely fix this, but also they wont need to if games arent being rendered above 1080p.

Plus If you took away the Titans, the game would just be called "fall" and that's a sily name for game.

"Having played (and loved) the Beta, im really looking forward to this launching.

However I was also struck by another thought, I can imagine really enjoying this game if you make this more COD-esque, remove the Titans but keep the movement mechanics, maybe even expand on the vertical aspects.

Maybe this is a game mode they could add to the game?"

I think that is quite reasonable, really. I played the Beta on foot up to Level 14 with my Titan either in guard or follow mode, but a lot of the time I just forgot to call for it drop. The community has put this question to Abbie Heppe and she said that although the game won't have a pilot-only mode for the game's launch, "[Respawn will] see what happens after launch."

Source from fifth paragraph of:

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/titanfall-might-get-a-dlc-season-pass-pilot-only-mode-could-come-after-launch/1100-6418043/

There is also a 'Pilot Hunter' mode in which you only get points for killing Pilots, but Titans are in that mode as well. I hope that helps. Not long now, is it?

Pretty much what I said but you didn't get down voted for it. I realise it's just because those people couldn't lick my tip though.
