That was a textbook teaser.  Showed nothing lol.  Looking forward to the reveal though.

Hopefully they learned from  and will do away with bots, up the human player counts, have a MUCH bigger gun selection, add music, and throw in campaign and coop to boot, just to tick all boxes.

This.  I thought Titanfall was fun for awhile but it grew old pretty quick.  Lack of content was the killer of this game for me.  The bots were annoying.  I much rather play against 8v8 pilots with the size of the maps the game had.  I hope they improve the aim mechanic as it felt floaty on the xim.  I also hope they increase the max turn speed as well.

The bots were a terrible idea, so you made the right call lol.  The most annoying part of the game was running around the fairly large maps looking for someone to kill, then getting excited to see someone finally, only to be disappointed that it was an AI and not a Pilot.  Rinse and repeat...

Why not just beef up the bots? I thought the problem was that they were brain dead? At this point I'd rather play against veteran quality bots with a full progression system than crappy players with a connection advantage.

Also, is this published by EA? Why couldn't they let Respawn use the Frosbite engine? Will be interesting to see how long from BF5 this will be released.

I think that bots of any sort mixed with human opponents just doesn't work all that well.  Maybe as a one off mode, but definitely not as the basis for the whole game.  It just makes for a weird dynamic in terms of competing.  Titanfall had like separate stats for vs bots and vs Pilots IIRC, so they obviously see that there is a difference and they don't really go together or shouldn't be taken at the same face value, so why even integrate them?

And I know that they introduced Pilot only modes after it was already too late, but I digress, but even then it was the same low player count which just made it feel even more empty, although more satisfying when you did get to engaging.

I don't know.  They want to do a Zombie type horde mode or something, then bots are fine, even though I never play those modes, but mixing them as the foundation of the game I felt was a huge misstep.

As for them using Frostbite, I can only surmise that since this is the CoD team, and they are intimately familiar with the mod Quake engine that they have been cutting their teeth with all this time, and that Titanfall was a pseudo launch title for X1, that there wasn't a lot of time for them to get up to speed enough to not only design a new IP from the ground up, but also use wholly unfamiliar tools to do it.

Why not make the cod killer? And Source engine again? Every source game released on console has had a @#$% aim mechanic.
Title: Re: Titanfall 2 Teaser
Post by: amak1 on 02:47 PM - 04/12/16
Im looking forward to it though the look mech on console sucked, on pc it was pretty fun. Did lack content though. It can only get better from tf 1 i think which almost felt like a proof of concept instead of a fully fleshed out game. And it wasnt the quake engine, it was source brand new from the ground up.

Post by: Lord Of The Sith on 07:07 PM - 04/13/16
Such a salty thread for a computer game that isn't even released. I would put this down to the fact that so many people were let down by the first one when there was so many hopes coming out of the beta.

We should just wait and see some game play before we judge.

I think the team will, at the very least learn from some of its mistakes. Many people complained / were vocal about the BOTs so they will have more than likely addressed that issue in some capacity.

I have hopes, since the way Titanfall felt to play in terms of the jet packs and wall running was perfect for this kind of game imho!

COD has tried to emulate it but failed twice...

The whole mechanics of the pilots could have carried the game to be a COD killer if they left out completely the BOTs AND mechs imho, it would have basically been BOPS3 but actually decent.

But whatever, i'm waiting for Twitch streams before i buy, and I'm certainly not going to get salty in a thread about the game before its even released, you should all do the same.

And save that talk for COD: SPACEWARFARE because that's going to be funny as hell when that trailer lands and you all try to defend the BS you just witnessed in a 2min trailer. I'm already buying up all the popcorn available locally.

Salted OFC.

Doesn't matter what they do with the game.

If the look mechanic still sucks (and it almost certainly will - because nobody complained about it except Ximmers) then it will be completely unplayable.
Title: Re: Titanfall 2 Teaser
Post by: Lord Of The Sith on 12:48 PM - 04/18/16
It was fun for a time on PC, looking at AW and BOPs3 (Bops3 being very good imho in terms of movement) it's uncanny how TF just had he perfect movement down pat, for this kind of game on its first attempt. I never tried to play it with XIM. It got boring fast for me, because apart from how fun it was to get from A to B around the maps, there was nothing holding me there. I didn't care about the game modes, they never made me want to win. I said it at the time, and i'm still adamant that if the had a CODesq S&D in there pilots only as a separate game mode, I would of played the hell out of it.

In a nutshell, I loved the way it felt to play as a pilot, I didn't care for the Titans, and hated the game modes.

if you didnt get to 10th prestige or shot 50 pilots while they were ejecting from their mechs then your hate opinions are not needed here, i played that game solo on a controller for 8 prestiges. game was fun but it did get old with the lack of guns, never cared for campaign, bots were weird at first but you they play little to no part in the game

Say the game sucked = hate

Play the game a lot and say you found it rather boring in retrospect given the 10k problems = constructive criticism

My honest opinion, I hate bots, the game lagged and stuttered on PC, launched like a pos and played like a pos. I guess I missed any enjoyment from the game because it was all 💩 on the surface, all floaters, no sinkers. I assume it did have some playability because some of you say it was a masterpiece, then in the same paragraph (almost always) - got boring fast...

I get my opinion, because I played it for exactly as long as I could suffer it. That's exactly the reason why I get my opinion. Just because your threshold for a boring game was a little more, doesn't mean my opinion doesn't count.

Anyway, can we just stop acting as if this was some massively popular game the first time around. Many people had many sound grievances with they game. Just because a few really liked it doesn't mean that they're right when they say it was awesome.

It's just means you're biased.

But this thread is about the sequel... not Titanfall 1.  We get it. You guys hated it. Cool. We knew that already based on the previous Titanfall related threads.

This was meant for the very few who are interested in the sequel. The dislike for the original has been noted.

TBH i do think that they will get it right this time around.
They know that they have gold in their hands with TF, they know this could grab a large part of the COD audience.

I really think it's going to be good colb, no bait.
But after all the burns that seem to come with literally any hype for any game these days. I'm going to have to wait for some "after release" stream gameplay before I buy.

There is nothing to talk about for TF2, because we know nothing about it.  All that you can really discuss is what you liked or didn't like about the first game and about what you want to be different or the same.  That's all I've done.  You aren't interested in that?  Not sure what else you want people to say.

I don't hate the game.  Never said I did.  There are things that I think would make the game better.  Sorry if that offends.

There's a big difference between saying "Gee I really hope they removed tee smart pistol" or speculating on the campaign "MacAllen died in the first game, why is he in the teaser for the sequel?", versus saying "I would pay them to stop making this game" or "most returns ever" etc.

Agreed.  Yet I never made any such comment, but it didn't preclude you from implying that I'm an idiot or have ADHD, or both, or that I'm just bad at the game.

I'll admit that there's plenty of legitimate  reasons to hate/dislike the original game. AI bashing was one of the worst excuses to not give the game a fair chance.

Dale (Harney) has some fair criticism, aside from AI. Look mechanic was trash. Competitive options non existent. Lack of game modes. Lack of content. Crappy game modes. Lack of real campaign.

All of those I totally agree with. But I still managed ~1000 hours played. The core mechanics worked. The AI, once you became fluent in the game, added depth. Late in the development cycle they added a non AI game mode. It was super popular for about 2 weeks and everyone went back to CTF and Attrition.  Non AI gameplay was full of sound whoring and the t-rex defense syndrome (can't see me if I don't move). Parkour disappeared and everyone camped. It was boring.

Using the AI to avoid the game is a cop out, as in many cases, it made the game better. At worst, it was a wash. That said, they should add more non AI game modes. At least give people a choice. Eventually they will mostly migrate back to AI enabled modes.

The one i would love, is a smaller map, S&D mode. No AI. 30% sized map. One titan per team.
Title: Re: Titanfall 2 Teaser
Post by: Web-head on 03:42 PM - 04/19/16
I mentioned all of those things save one.  The look mechanic.  I played on PC so that was never an issue.

Bottom line is that in your opinion the AI is fine.  In my opinion, it is not.  I'm not going to try and convince you that you shouldn't like bots.  You're not going to convince me that I like them.

I put in probably 40 or 50hrs in the game.  That's enough for me to know what I don't like about it.

I play a TON of Destiny.  I mostly play crucible.  I play PvE too, and I do enjoy it, but the main reason that I play PvE is to get weapons to use in pvP.  Shooting people on the other end of the LAN cable in the face is my thing.  Bots have never been that big with me.  Just aren't.  People play hours of zombie modes in CoD.  I tried out the 1st in BO and haven't come back since.  Wasn't bad and I tell myself that someday I'll try the one in BO3 cause it looks pretty good, but at the end of the day, when I only have X amount of hours to play, it's hard for me to choose to spend that on a bot mode.  That's just me.

To me, the bots are extraneous and don't add anything to the game.  The reason for them being added was for people of all skill levels to feel like they are doing something.  For me, they are just annoyances that keep from from shooting the human on the other end of the LAN cable in the face, faster.

Parkour was excellent, although I feel that BO3 has it more fluidly than even TF.  Not surprising since they got to learn from it.  The Titan mode was probably one of my faves.  There is good there to work with.  It lacks that something though.  The weapon selection is pretty bad and because of it, they spaced unlocks out way too far.  If I get the game it will be on PS4, so I hope the look mechanic is better.  From what I hear it's pretty bad.  And like I said before, bots should not be the core of the game.  They should up the human player count and have it be the reverse of TF.  Instead of the core game being bots with a couple human only modes, it should be core game of humans and a couple bot modes.  Better map design wouldn't hurt either.

Lastly, and this is just a nitpick I admit, but destruction would be welcome.  It's weird to see giant robots duking it out but no collateral damage.  Also, no windows on any structures or any doors?  Come on lol.

We have a saying in my country. "If you speak the truth, you don't deserve to be punished" and this was straight from the heart... I applaud to you good sir.


I'm actually excited to see some gameplay from Titanfall 2, see what they've done with the game and most of all see if they heard the community and their grievances. I they miss this opportunity to make an impact in the FPS genre, they'll never recover if there's a blowback.
