Really? Ya'll are having problems with Frontier Defense? :doge

Protip: Eqiup Nuke to your Mech. Buy Amped Battery (if you have the spare cash) while getting 2-3 (or more) Arc Traps each round.

Arc Traps is the only thing you NEED to buy beyond Amped Batteries (to regen health between rounds) and so long as your team clears lanes, you'll NEVER have problems with the AI.

Didn't say I was having problems, only had to restart like twice so far, just that it's harder on the each difficulty compared to the last game.

I flood the map with arc traps, especially once I learn the waves.

Wargames is toughest because it has that gap in the middle that the waves can come through but you can't. Actually, I just realized I should put a turret on the boxes there instead of covering the one flank nobody else ever covers. I always run out to the back end of the map and rain fire on shit from behind since nobody else ever ventures out to the mortar titans. Using the long range on Legion is hilarious because the titans hitboxes go over the boxes/cargo things/etc. and the AI just wanders in circles through my arc trap pile trying to figure it out.
and so long as your team clears lanes
:girlaff

Benji, the anti titan laser is good if you add the perk which basically removes the charge time. All of mine except that slow energy ball thing are at G3 or almost there.
Feels lame though and that's what matters. That slow energy ball is almost instadoom if you hit with it on the AI Titans and it damages everything it flies by. If you get the bigger mag and fast reload and they line up (in part because they're stuck in your arc traps), oh the slaughter.

The Wargames mad doesn't have obvious lanes and the randoms I play with tend to be dumb as shit on this map so, yeah. I have trouble with it. Maps with clear lanes are much easier. Also, I stopped playing the first game before they added this mode. It's completely new to me. I know arc traps are the most important though. My support score is usually the highest on my team because of it. I rarely buy turrets.

I haven't used nuke eject because Scorch and Northstar are usually great in the situations I tend to use them in, but I'll try that out tonight. I haven't used any other titans in Frontier Defense yet.

Yes it does. The waves do not change no matter the difficulty mode. Watch your mini-map, they fall in the same area per round. In fact, I'm finding Frontier Defense disappointing because of that: There's no unexpected twists.

Turrets are pointless. Smack anyone on your team that buys that shit because it's a waste of cash.

1. Arc Trap
2. Amped Battery
3. Nuke Rodeo (if wanting to chain, but even then you can basically speed yourself at a Nuke AI to chain some damage IIRC)
4. Amped Weapons if needed, but you really shouldn't need it as Thunderbolt is MVP.

Spam Arc Traps at all the spawn points (a bit out of them), laying them downwards every like 50 meters toward your generator. Since Arc traps slow down EVERYTHING, you should have more than ample time on Easy/Normal/Hard to clear everything out with you and your team.

Loadout is something like:

SMG/LMG/Assault Rifle (screw the Sniper Rifles) + Thunderbolt unless you're using that Charge Rifle with the quickfire so it doesn't charge up + Smoke Grenade with refilling Ordinance perk enabled.
A-wall (meh), Stim (MVP), Grapple (maybe)
Titans: Doesn't matter, pick them and get extra dash + nuke in case you get massively damaged and then spam EEE to take a group out if you're surrounded.

Nothing should get past you and your team if your team isn't brain-dead on defending/objective.

Kinda wish there was different waves to where this tactic wouldn't work and maybe the turrets would be useful instead of a waste of cash.

In terms of the Mechs:

1. Northstar
2. Monarch
3. Scorch (maybe, if you're good at burning groups)
4. Ion/Legion/Tone
100. Ronin (absolutely pointless and I hate having to level this one up)

So long as you have four uniques (and a Monarch with shield regen I guess) you won't have a problem. If your Mech gets nuked, your thunderbolt spamming while stimmed up will generally get you another one within 30 seconds.

finally got a friend into titanfall 2 even though he bought the game at launch (i didn't even, waited for $45, and i actually played the first game!)

i don't think he believed me when i told him in the past that the stuff in the trailers was actually legit gameplay...and i think he's finally realizing my position that many pilots are endlessly more frightening than titans

hid like a little bitch as i dropped a titan on a guy trying to get me...he got revenge next match in bounty hunt because we all ditched our titans outside the bank to deposit and he dropped his dead center :rofl

got put into live fire, which i usually don't play, after friend left and holy crap is the mastiff is a monster in those tight maps...we had four mastiffs on our team and other team had three krabers so someone proposed at the halftime we make it all mastiffs vs. krabers

team kraber seriously never had a chance, if it wasn't for them all seemingly having fire stars...

NEED THOSE THREE MORE FD MAPS, i seriously haven't seen one other than Forwardbase Kodai in over a week :dead
(at least it's helping my friend learn the game while i get to do silly easy mode capable things like only use my pistol and rodeoes for an entire wave...plus knowing the wave order now lets me plaster the map in arc traps for which there totally needs to be an end round banner)

this guy was trying to get the cloak execution unlock thing, but he was counting them down in chat, so i grabbed him with the grapple whenever i saw his shimmering self running around after people until he said "omg stop that" 8)

randomly started using the Hover after unlocking it again this go-round and realizing that i basically never used whatever i was before

what a stupidly silly fun ability, and it feels like literally nobody is ready for it to be used to survey from long distances, it's a complete terror for people on glitch or anywhere that coming to a sudden stop way up in mid-air with lots of sight-lines blocked for anyone who is not totally hovering a thousand feet in the air is the last thing anyone will expect, like they say in video games nobody ever looks up

being able to do it anywhere makes it more fun than the wall hang, especially if you double jumped to some total nonsense position and use it

does diminish in effectiveness as titans drop and you're in their eyeline more often, hence the ability to get higher easier than with the wallhang helping out

now i'm realizing you could use it jumping backwards as you exit a building or with the grapple to make even more absurd sudden stops that you have no business doing in a MP FPS, cept the new king bless up  :rejoice

best part is how you can immediately cancel out of it into anything else just like all the movement, that's what CoD and a lot of other stuff hasn't yet figured out from what i've played, maybe CoD skipping at least a year and Brink coming back to the cheers of millions upon millions will get others to rethink the importance of movement and the superiority of objectives

This doesn't relate to the main game, just the franchise, but I was hopeful to see a mobile version of the property come out. Titanfall Assault is a good looking, reasonable to learn game without a disgusting number of mysterious currencies to figure out. It's more or less Crash Royale's mechanics, but troop placement is in a shared battleground rather than divided and bridge-crossable. Aggressive troop placement is partially ameliorated by automated turret emplacements.

It's fun, give it a shot.

that second shot unlock is more of a game changer than i expected especially if you're constantly dropping canisters

when i went back to regular modes i kept going after people like "aha i've got you now" and then nope you're gonna be reloading breh :doge

and then just rushing the waves with the flame shield is stupid fun

also, that angel city wave that more or less forces you to circle the map to take out all the mortar spectres across every single rooftop :whew

even fakes you out the first time by taking you off to the one corner, dropping something else so you're like alright done with that, and then suddenly restarting the circle again

I stick with the grapple thanks to rooftop situations like this. It's a lot easier to get around with it than stim.

oh jeez none of my aegis ranks are above 5 because i swap between them all constantly, same with weapons, etc.

i've never truly swapped off the grapple since i saw it in the trailer...except for a week where i was trying the holo pilots and while that was sometimes fun i never figured out the ideal ways for it while staying in motion

really everything just always comes back to me wanting that extra movement, the weird thing is that i never see anybody really using it at weird angles or swinging with it and i'm constantly doing that and then hitting walls and jumping off to grapple another point (now with some dead-stop hovers sprinkled in) and i can look back and see a dude totally give up trying to chase me down, even in a titan

and flying in from one direction, then looping around and cutting to float over stuff to the other side totally exploits the nobody looks up exploit, it's like i want to completely be dumb and climb and fly all over these maps and fire my grapple randomly and try to make it work and then oh yeah i totally meant to do that when i accidentally flip myself over a wall and land behind half the other team i'm a mlg pro 8)

of course basically 95% of people are either using stim or cloak from what i can tell

my favorite thing playing that little of live fire i did i mentioned above was all the people using cloak...like wtf, i felt it wasn't sporting to try and melee or grapple them like normal when i see some cloaked dude running around inside buildings and just put them out of their misery from afar instead

reminds me, the friend i mentioned a few posts above who was just getting into the game finally started to get some of the basics down after not knowing how to use the grapple, how you can really jump in any directions, etc. he hadn't yet cracked TF1 levels of movement yet, and i kept telling him that no you can literally do all this stuff in the trailers, i'm doing it regularly and i stink, just watch from a safe rooftop for a few seconds while i do stuff or whatever like two grapples and two jumps to cross angel city's middle while making a 45 degree turn back to come in the backside of the building, etc....then he figured out some of the basics the other weekend a bit and he was like oh my god at what you can do :ohhh

then right after we played some rainbow six siege and i fell off a building because i basically tried to wallrun :rofl

it honestly didn't look that far, i think she could have made it

The best non-grapple movement and aim I've seen in this game are from people who play Live Fire regularly. One time this guy on the opposing team was wallrunning for most of the match with the first sniper rifle you get and he just kept picking off people. I hope I never play him again.

Northstar is the only other titan I use in Frontier Defense. Once I get all of Scorch's unlocks, I'll try messing around with a couple other titans.

that's that one ability to scope while wallrunning or whatever i think but you can quick-scope the kraber pretty well imo, probably puts on gun ready too, like most multiplayer games ever it's sometimes way easier to quick scope those sniper rifles in close quarters and if you have no movement penalty which this game totally lets you do which is the normal drawback

tone and legion seem really underpowered in FD i mean compared to how they play in MP, monarch and ion oddly work out better for me, i think in legion's case it's simply the speed factor plus how you've got basically nothing but the gun, that's all without aegis upgrades obviously, i thought tone's pulse could be useful but everybody probably ignores it

northstar with the full power shot, heck even half power, cleaning up all sorts of titans...and the hover saving me from having to run all over the map to take out the mortar titans when i can snipe em while hovering :lawd

though smh at a dude using ion who isn't putting down the tripwires nor using the scatter, it like why you even bro

Still enjoying this, finally seeing lots of people who know the game better than I do. Only winning half the time, so matchmaking is pretty tight.

However, I did just win my first shutout battle, pretty sure the other guy thinks I'm cheating.

out of desperation and assuming i was dead anyway, i decided to use the hover directly on the evac spot and everyone just ignored me standing there in the air and ship came and i popped in, they probably thought i was a glitch or something  :lol

noticed a lot more thunderbolts in use recently, wonder if people picked that up from playing frontier defense where it's even more useful

have i raved like a lunatic about the flexibility and movement in this game recently? because holy fuck this shit is so amazing, did they hire some wizards or somethin to code this game using magiC++ or what

Got it cheap at a PSN sale a while ago and started the single player campaign last week.

Stomping around with the titan is fun but I'm enjoying the hell out of jumping around and running on the walls and shit.

Most fun I've had with a shooter since I don't know, Halo? :rejoice

Wonder if there are other shooters that have the same kind of mobility...

And even that doesn't have the grappling hook, which I can't switch away from, I feel naked. I would keep moving in a way where I'd need it and just fall harmlessly to the ground as my clones or whatever ran off.

I rarely see other people using it though, usually stim and cloak, followed by the clones. One time saw a dude using the A-Wall and I was the only other person who would run over and use it when he put it up. :lol

I sling shot across the maps recklessly like it's fucking Spider-Man 2 all up in this joint all the time after spawning. Especially the first one even though it's stupid.

But yet again, it's a video game, nobody ever looks up. So I usually just fly right over.

Which now makes me want to do a spawn slingshot into the middle of a map and scope so I hover just for funzies.

In a frontier defense game I was playing last weekend it was funny watching my teammates on the map slowly trying to run back and forth to the various crisis points, while I was flinging myself all over off everything and into the air and raining down thunderbolt shots and electric smoke nades. Even the AI doesn't look up. I spent almost the entire game on the right side of the map alone as they all ran around the left side. And when something would get through to the harvester I would fling myself back in that direction, and take care of it, and then see a teammate come running out of a building from wherever.

Glitch is almost too much fun just flying around on that the other team gets in the way of me trying to do stupid routes like dropping under the one wall to grapple onto the other and continue running. Plus they added those ziplines out of the spawns so you can slide down those and then grapple to fling yourself across almost the entire map if there weren't the center walls blocking it.

also these videos should be done with text to speech

edit:
no one speaking in this one, and he grapples a titan and circles around it, which always makes me wish the grapple actually was physical and you could tie it around the legs like star wars...also this one has more of the short crap i do a lot to just make me ever so erratic and make immediate direction/angle changes:

~1500 on weekdays
~2500-3000 on weekends
frontier defense did give it a boost, probably ~500 extra players compared to before it, it was also on sale then so that probably helped too

can pretty much find a game in a few seconds depending on how many modes you pick to matchmake into, taking the main modes of Attrition/Hardpoint/Bounty usually finds me a game in under a minute, putting Live Fire into the mix guarantees it...if you don't care and pick everything i'm sure you'd find games always within a few seconds

weekdays you can sometimes wait five minutes or so for frontier defense games, it cycles through potential games extra times before it'll put you in an empty slot in an already going game for that mode

the special weekly/monthly mode does seem to take forever unless it's advertising 2XP or says what the fuck it is, you can't stick it in your matchmaking modes list for some silly reason

it still seems to have that ol surely placebo Call of Duty matchmaking quirk where it seems like you're getting nothing so you back out and go right back in again and you'll be put into a game pretty much instantly :lol

Isn't Ubisoft getting picked up by Vivendi or whatever?

1.) They'll make another Titanfall
2.) Zampella and West will leave
3.) The Star Wars game will be in development hell
4.) EA will mismanage everything
5.) Star Wars thing may/maynot come out
6.) They'll shut down Respawn

Jason West left Respawn in May 2012. He was only there until they settled the lawsuit with Activision.

The other big name at respawn to watch for if they leave is Steve Fukuda. He was lead director on both TFs, writer on 2. Think he came from IW days as well. I'll start to worry when he leaves.

Sounds like Visceral was ultimately shut down because this deal was happening and that the Respawn Star Wars game looks way better in its current state that the Visceral game ever did. Hoping for the best, preparing for the worst. Titanfall 2 should've been a bigger deal. Maybe Respawn will come out well on the deal and absorb some of those Visceral guys. Maybe Respawn will develop the next good Dead Space game. Maybe they'll take over Need for Speed and make a good one of those.

Wouldn't Disney be contracted for both projects to release, regardless of a change in ownership?

I don't think Disney would be involved in any of this in anyway at all, none of their properties are involved and they don't own EA.

Kiddo.
