    Yeah I cannot imagine a game fandom that would be happier than Titanfall fans when/if Titanfall 3 is announced. There are still people who play TF2 religiously. I hope they make money on Apex Legends for another year or two and then just knock TF3 out of the park. Maybe line it up with the launch of next gen consoles.

    I picked up TF2 when it was on sale since I was always interested but could never find time for it. I finally played through the campaign and damnit I hate myself for missing out on this game all this time.

    It really is a fantastic game. The multiplayer is also worth it just for the amazing feeling of flying around the maps, never mind the fact that every single match has something fantastically cinematic happen several times on account of the titans.

    Though full disclosure you will be murdered relentlessly for weeks, if not months, because the people still playing it are god damned monsters when it comes to the PVP.

    And I don't mean that in the sense they they're cruel assholes. I mean that in the sense that you'll be a lamb and they'll be Deathclaws with plasma miniguns in a full set of power armor that have free access to airstrikes.

    Alternatively, there's Frontier Defense if you want multiplayer action but not have to deal with PVP.

    Not a thing I knew existed and have no idea what it entails but is still attractive enough to make me consider reinstalling the game.

    Though that would obviously involve me replaying the campaign and since it's possibly the best single player campaign I've ever played through in an FPS I just can't imagine putting myself through that agai

    Oh, wait

    Frontier Defense is like a horde mode with you and some other humans fighting waves of AI soldiers and titans

    It’s pretty dang fun

    Knowledge of the maps themselves are the most important thing. My reactions and aim aren't great, but I do reasonably well (on the PS4) because I've got a fairly good idea of where people will be and the lanes people shoot down. There are parts to all maps that I just ignore going to because my life expectancy can be measured in seconds.

    If you want to get in to the PvP, then I'd recommend Bounty first because it basically gives zones for players to go to and fight. This gives you a rough ideawhere most of the players are going to be so you won't find yourself getting killed from all angles (which can happen in other modes) and you can start to learn the maps.

    Plus, killing the NPC's builds up your titan meter very quickly, and it should be said that this mode priortises on you playing the objective. I've seen people top the scoreboard with very low kill scores, while those with 30+ kills are down near the bottom.

    Attrition is similar to Bounty, but you don't quite get the zones to fight over, and kills matter more.

    You do unlock things fairly quicky, in terms of classes and weapons, etc...but the starter stuff is great and most can be bought on a permanent basis from the credits you earn very quickly. They only thing I can remember being expensive is the pilot classes...

    That and it's dirt easy to find a lobby on Normal difficulty. Never have to wait more than a minute to get into a game.

    Titanfall 2 is my Game of the Generation. It's the only multiplayer shooter I've played that doesn't leave me salty after a loss, because even in losing I still pulled off some cool shit.

    If TF3 is ever a thing then I really hope factions is still a thing . I fight for the ACEs , nobody else.

    I will say for 3 one thing I hope is that the maps feel more balanced.

    1's maps probably favored pilots too much, but I felt the ones in 2 were a bit too wide open.

    As least a mix or something would be nice.

    There was a developer insight near release that stated 1 maps were chaotic sponges and 2 maps were more designed around lanes and the entire community agreed the sponge maps from 1 were significantly better. Angel City simply spanks Crash Site.

    Yeah, the lane design of TF2 maps ends up taking all verticality and non-linearity of the movement and makes the player want to take linear paths. I much preferred being rewarded for coming up with maneuvers for the current battlefield situation than just learning rote patterns for static lanes.

    Not to mention the newer maps are fucking awful for Titan combat. Combined with extremely aggravating change to prebuilt Titans, certain Titans just have enormous, enormous advantages on certain maps. You end up spending most of the time shoved down one approach or another and if you get outnumbered going that way, welp, you're fucked because you can only go forwards or backwards to get away. And because some of those maps are so constrained, almost all the Pilot combat happens in the same space as the Titan combat and Pilots just get slaughtered repeatedly.

    It also doesn't help that lane-designed maps feel like game maps instead of places. It's obvious how the combat is being corralled into certain avenues, rather than just being dropped into a chaotic warzone.

    Overall, I'd want TF3 to take a significant step towards being more like the first game than the second. The second game just constrains players far, far too much in order to try to force them to play maps the particular way the devs want them to. I want real weapon customization and actual Titan customization back, not this crap with the same upgrades for almost every gun and fixed Titan types with limited upgrades.

    I mean, the emphasis on lanes works for Frontier Defense...but I can see how it'd be less than great in a PVP setting (unless, of course, Titanfall 3 becomes a blending of DotA/LoL with mechs). Like, it'd be a pipedream, but it'd be nice if, for Titanfall 3, Respawn did what DICE did for Battlefield: Bad Company 2/Battlefield 3 for their Rush game mode. Namely, have different map layouts for Frontier Defense (have the lanes) and the PVP modes (no lanes).

    Also, I agree...I miss being able to customize my Titan AI voice/personality. I'd love to equip Audrey into my Monarch >.<

    I loved the TF2 campaign. It's not one of the best campaigns ever, but it is one of the best designed campaigns ever. The gold standard in pacing, variety, length and difficulty. I've replayed it a couple of times and it's always good.

    I played the hell out of TF1 multiplayer, all achievements, Gen 10, absolutely adored that game. I tried to get into TF2 multiplayer, but I disliked pretty much all of the changes from TF1. TF1, while simplistic, felt like a warzone with tons of enemy AI everywhere and chaotic maps. You could fight other pilots, but I loved to rampage through the AI and focus on enemy pilots only when necessary.

    TF2 went heavily in the direction of traditional, structured player-vs-player combat, with some AI and some Titans. I could not play it like I played TF1. And if I wanted to shoot other players, I had any number of other multiplayer games I'd rather do that in.

    But how many other multiplayer games let you drop your mech on top of their mech.

    The Smart Pistol is still one of the greatest innovations of their design.
    Also if they made a third, I'd like them to skew more back to Titanfall's MP design.
    And a minor quibble, I highly resent the 3rd person cutaway scenes when getting into your Titan in TF2. Loved staying in the first person in TF1 as a hand came down to scoop you into the cockpit.
