And no frontier defense again. Seriously? You would think that would be super easy to put in considering it was in the last game. Ugh.

Apparently Frontier Defense isn't coming until Summer.


I'm excited for the new vanguard titan. But I'm still miffed about some of the recent balancing. Devotion needs another nerf and since when did ION become such a monster?? Other than that I'm pretty happy with the game besides pilot tactical is still game/game mode breaking. Pulse blade is almost criminally underused considered how ridiculously OP it is EXCEPT in Live Fire where every single person uses it and it sucks. It literally ruins the game mode for me. Grapple still messes with the hit detection to the degree that playing skilled spudder men is an exercise in absolute frustration. I personally find cloak to be my most hated ability as I've seen more and more players use it to corner camp. We don't even need to get into Phase Shift do we? Tactical abilities should be removed from use in specific game modes (ie Live Fire) and/or a game mode needs to be added that omits them. I would hate to divide up the player base even more but I still feel this is the single largest issue affecting the game.

What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...

Yeah, this iteration was too big for it's shoes. They thought they could go up against Gears and COD. It's solid, but they dropped several things that made it so innovative, and diverse from COD.
The weaker Titans, and the inability to pull what weapon/missile/defense combo that you choose...(not their pre-ordained loadouts) all added up to underwhelming for me...

I did enjoy playing Titan Brawl last night, however ...(except for the ever annoying, ridiculously overpowered RONIN class...that bot should not be able to block bullets from four different Titans at the same time) first time I picked the game up in a while.

Today we are revealing our 6th DLC drop for Titanfall 2 called The War Games and it will be available for free for all platforms on June 27th! We’ll have the trailer for you at launch.
For now, let’s breakdown what you’re getting:
  • Map: War Games – Pilots on the Frontier frequently use simulator pods to train, using life-like recreations of historical battles as combat scenarios. War Games highlights the civilian shops, tall buildings for window-to-window fighting, and city streets for Titan combat from the Battle of Angel City, and the large, open tank garage facilities for hand-to-hand Pilot combat from the Battle of Airbase Sierra. The outskirts of the map feature a clean, VR style perfect for Titan duels, while Pilots are often found running along the bright, interconnected wallrunning routes.
  • Live Fire Map: Traffic –A weathered test site where pilot positioning is pitted against mobility across two busy thoroughfares. Dense cover makes every corner a threat, with room for snipers to hide in the back fields.
  • New Execution: Shadow Boxing [Holo Pilot]
  • 3rd Weapon Slot for Pilots – You will now be able to equip a primary, secondary, and anti-titan weapon.
  • Titan Brawl will be added to the permanent list of game modes. Titan damage will be displayed instead of assists.
  • New Featured Mode: Free Agents
  • Additional details for balance changes, features, and updates will be provided in the patch notes closer to launch.

It was the horde mode they had in Titanfall 1. They've said they're adding it but here we are 9 months later and it's still not there.

I'm beginning to think that Frontier Defense is never coming.

In other news: holy hell is monarch strong. I don't think monarch would have seemed out of place in the old game but they've nerfed the other titans so much that a titan that can essentially go super saiyan feels unbalanced. I didn't play this game for a couple of months and all I had heard was the new titan was weak and you had to play a very defensive, poke and run style of play with her. Nope. First match I played with monarch she hit max level and I felt like an unstoppable war machine of the apocalypse. I think she really changes the meta and I'm not 100% that it's in a good way. Love her or hate her: Tone at least has significant disadvantages. The only disadvantage I see with monarch is the lack of a defined defensive capability but with maelstrom you can just pop a bunch of smoke and '**** this **** I'm out!'

I'm still looking for people to play with. If any of you guys/gals are so inclined send me an invite. I prefer bounty hunt (I know I know) but I'd be willing to play anything with anyone that isn't a random. This game feels better when played with a party. It can get pretty bleak playing solo which is one of the reasons I think the game has struggled in the market. It's a lot of fun but my God can you get wrecked when you come across a group that knows what they're doing. This is not COD where you can hero ball-- at least not in the titan meta. You can tear it up as a pilot but when the rest of your team is sucking on their thumb sticks feeding the other team points it doesn't matter how well you're playing. I would say I'm an average player and by that I mean I'm no lobby monster but I'm also not a scrub. I enjoy this game and would just like to have fun and play with some people of a like mind set. My live name is: NannerpussPRO.

Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...

The Titan you pick at the start is locked for the rest of the match.
Earn cash for defeating enemies that you can spend in between waves to purchase tools at the Armory.

There will be an Insane difficulty as well that will exist in a separate tile as a Featured Mode.

Blackwater Canal
We are currently testing additional maps and will add more in future
??Classic Music?? option will unlock Titanfall 1 lobby music and Frontier Defense music. [Win 10 matches of Frontier Defense to access]

NEW MAP: Rise
Long sight lines and tight quarters dictate the battle in this abandoned desert reservoir. The towering, sheer walls and a system of convenient zip lines provide Pilots with means to get around quickly while Titans do battle in the long corridors below. Pilots can also set up ambushes in the guts of this complex pipeworks, while titans can lock down large sections of the battlefield at critical junctures. Tread carefully.

NEW LIVE FIRE MAP: Township
A new modular construction of a residential firefight. Cover is sparse for Pilots bold enough to leave the safety of a few houses. Windows and rooftops decide who controls the map, but dense interiors can always hold surprises.

NEW CONTENT [PURCHASABLE]

ELITE WEAPON WARPAINTS: Exclusive to Pilot weapons, these Warpaints grant the Squad Leader bonus: If you or any other player own one of these Warpaints, everyone on your team will be granted bonus XP. The effect doesn't stack, and you don't need to have the warpaint equipped to receive the bonus. Additionally, owners of the Warpaints will have a 10% chance of receiving a double XP token per owned weapon [up to 30%] at the end of every match.

PRICE: $4.99 each // $24.99 bundle for all [bundle only available until 8.28.2017]
G2A5 ??MASTERWORK ELITE??
ALTERNATOR ??FRONTIER PATRIOT ELITE??
B3 WINGMAN ??AQUA FADE ELITE??
ARCHER ??PHANTOM ELITE??
CAR ??CRIMSON FURY ELITE??
R-201 CARBINE ??UNDERGROUND ELITE??
EVA-8 AUTO SHOTGUN ??BADLANDS ELITE??
FLATLINE ??BLUE FADE ELITE??

TITAN WARPAINTS [LIMITED EDITION - CAN ONLY BUY UNTIL 8.28.2017]: Grants bonus Aegis XP to you and your teammates at the completion of a Frontier Defense match when this skin is equipped. This boost will be increased with each team member that also has the warpaint meaning you can earn up to 4x Aegis XP bonus. Warpaint also includes an additional shoulder arm plate with scaling iconography based on hardest Frontier Defense difficulty completed with that titan. The Warpaint also grants a special call sign with scaling iconography based on the hardest Frontier Defense difficulty completed with that titan.

PRICE: $4.99 each // $24.99 bundle for all

GAME IMPROVEMENTS
Added more out of bounds triggers to Complex.
New stats page for maps, including tracking of Frontier Defense difficulty levels.
Visual improvements for Weapon and Titan stats pages.

TITAN BALANCE

General
Ogre class Titans now have a baseline of 1 dash with a 10 second cooldown.
Turbo Engine will now reduce cool down of Scorch and Legion??s dashes to 5 seconds. It will still behave the same as before for other Titan classes.
Overcore now gives 20% core meter.
Electric Smoke unlocks at 20% instead of 25%.

Ronin
Sword Block damage reduction reduced by 5%.

Scorch
Scorch will now have 1 dash charge with a 10 second cooldown.
Increased Firewall??s width.
Scorch Kits
Wildfire Launcher now increases the direct-hit damage of the Thermite Launcher. It still increases the amount of fire spread.
Scorched Earth??s lingering fire lasts longer.
Tempered Plating now makes Scorch immune to crits and his own thermite damage.
Fixed a bug with Flame Core not igniting Incendiary Traps.

Legion
Legion will now have 1 dash charge with a 10 second cooldown.
Hidden Compartment: Power Shot has two charges and Power Shot damage is reduced by 15%.

Monarch
XO-16 base magazine size increased to 40 rounds.
Reduced the strength of the slow effect of Energy Siphon.
Slightly reduced effectiveness of Arc Rounds against Vortex Shield and Heat Shield.
Multi-Target Missile System no longer locks onto cloaked targets.


PILOT BALANCE

General
Aim Assist settings have been modified for Assault Rifles and SMGs.
ARs and SMGs require you to be aiming closer to your target before any ADS assist takes effect.
Reduced the overall effectiveness of ADS assist for Assault Rifles.
Titan Hunter kit modified to be 10% extra Titan meter from damage instead of 10% Titan Meter on Titan Kill.

Phase Shift
Now has just 1 charge, but recharges faster.

SMG??s
Medium and long damage significantly reduced.
One of the positive changes we saw in the High TTK playlist was the increase of weapon diversity. It is our hope that between the Aim Assist nerf and this SMG nerf, we??ll see weapon diversity increased across all three platforms.

G2
Reduced fire rate.

DMR
Reduced fire rate: In this particular instance, we felt that the reduced fire rate simply made the gun feel better since the gun stabilizes better between shots.

Flatline
Slightly reduced damage at medium range. It still has the best medium range damage of any Assault Rifle.

Archer
No longer locks onto cloaked targets.

Smart Pistol
No longer locks onto cloaked targets.

Sidearms
High TTK playlist changes for the P2016, Wingman, Wingman Elite, and Mozambique have been brought over to bring their power level down now that all Pilots can carry a secondary weapon.

Melee
Lunge time and melee hit frames changed to .3 seconds from .2 seconds. This will help people firing weapons, particularly automatic weapons, get extra shots in before the lunge completes.
Melee lunge range reduced.
Non-lunge melee attack range increased. This will help with the cases where melee looks like it should hit but doesn??t connect with the target.

GAME MODE ADJUSTMENTS:
Various improvements to the UI for Private Match, including increased visibility of text chat on PC.


MISC BUG FIXES
Fixed issues with purchasable Nose Arts not showing up correctly on Titans.
Spectators in Marked for Death can no longer be marked for death.
(Xbox One) Buttons and pod doors in War Games intro sequence now play at the correct volume.
Titan Nose Arts flagged as Advocate Gift unlocks may now actually be awarded when opening Advocate Gifts.

What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...
