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.
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...
