Titanfall 2 Multiplayer growing on me

Recommended Posts

Wyvern13    445

So I got Titanfall 2 knowing that the game has had some major changes from the first one.

I have to be 100% honest and say that I wasn't liking the multiplayer very much for these first few nights. One issue is that the perks unlocking with level put lower level characters at a big disadvantage. As an example, Map Hack was one of the best Burn Cards in the original game. You could only bring 3 cards into a match and the effect disappeared with your death (or loss of Titan). In the new version, Map Hack is a high-level ability which can be used multiple times in a game. It doesn't last long, but can be a huge advantage.

The Titans were dumbed down. Last version there were 3 chassis and you could mix and match the weapons, weapon unlocks, and a handful of abilities. Now, there are six archetypes. Each one comes with its own unique weapon, secondary weapon, defense, and special ability called core. Like pilot special abilities, the core unlocks over time with kills & goals speeding it along.
 

Wolfrat and I are playing mostly with our friend Nyankoframe (he signed up on TAG, but doesn't post). We were regularly getting curb stomped in Bounty Hunter (which can be a fun mode) and last night decided to do Attrition for a bit. Finally, we were able to hold our own and win some games. I think this was a combination of getting familiar with the maps and being high enough level to have some good abilities and add-ons for our weapons. Wolfrat got the sixth Titan, Legion, and was instantly in love with it - finally felt he had something powerful. I had been using Northstar with plasma railgun (simplified greatly) and then started using Tone (who totes the 40 mm cannon) - both of those I like.

So I encourage my fellow TAGgers to stick with the game long enough to unlock all the Titans and learn the maps. I look forward to gaming with you!

I have been sticking with Tone myself. I should probably try some of the others.  Attrition is my favorite game type at the moment. I can roll with Bounty Hunt just fine but the bank camping gets on my nerves a bit.

So far I am having a blast with this game. So much of it just feels right and the changes haven't bothered me a bit.  Also the grapple is freaking great for traversal. I find myself rodeoing a lot more than I ever did in the first game (mostly because it makes it very easy to earn a titan) and i can actually get into the escape ship with the grapple where i had such a hard time doing it in the original game.

Yes, I am learning to use the grapple pretty well. One of the things I do now is when I grapple, I jump with about a third of the way left to my destination to get on top of things. If I want to go in a window, I grapple right below the window & pop right in.

Last night I was running with the Spitfire which I only used when I had to for a challenge in the original. I was loving it.

I fell in love after my first couple matches! It feels like titanfall again and that's a good thing . 

I am a little bummed a out not being able to customize the titans as much but I'm dealing with it.

Yesterday I grappled a Ronin that then hauled ass around a corner. It slingshotted me around and I landed right on him, got his battery and grappled away. I would have thought it would have broke the tether when he disappeared around the corner but nope.  You can get some insane momentum going from chaining slides, wall runs, and grapples.
