if you guys never check out major nelson's podcast, check out episode 501. they had a guy from the Xbox Live Compute team and a guy from Respawn. gave a lot of details about the behind the scenes of the titanfall beta. learned some cool tidbits. even talked about the crash that stopped the beta for a few hours. and it finally made sense about the other titans that were in the. they had the strider and the ogre in there but only as burn cards. so the lucky few who got those burn cards, that's how they were getting those titans. and while I knew the AI was computed in the cloud, I didn't make the connection that when your titan is in auto mode (either follow or guard), that was done completely in the cloud. very cool info on instant spooling up of more servers on demand.
