90% of the Pilots use the same Titan

    Hello there Pilots, and Respawn

    We all have noticed that most of the players use the same titan: Tone,
    but it must not be nerfed again!, the other titans must be upgraded,
    some examples:

    Ion's splitter rifle should do more damage, it takes a lot of shooting to kill one enemy pilot, and second charge for laser shot
    Northstar: faster charge for the plasma railgun, two thether rtaps as default, an option to add a third one, shooting from air deals more damage
    Ronin: arc wave stuns enemy titans, like the electric grenade
    Legion: faster walk
    Scorch: firewall is broader, thermite launcher is double barreled, third incendiary trap as an option

    Tone: particle wall is attached , so it's always in front
    (I personally would make the 40mm rifle automatic...)


    thanks for reading

    I always see a mix of Titans so I don't agree with this. Which modes are you talking about ?

    In almost every game of attrition i see a legion , scorch , Tone, Ronin , sometimes northstar and sometimes Ion. I rarely encounter an abundance of just one type of Titan. Sure sometimes you see 2 players using the same but I don't see anything disproportionate whatsoever. I'm not saying there shouldn't be adjustments made to each Titan but I don't see an imbalance like 90% like your claiming.

    I think the longer people play Tf2 the more they use different Titans. Tone and Ion are the easier titans to use. So beginners or new players may always start with them first.

    I agree to what you're saying to an extent but you can't make titans good at everything. Ion's splinter rifle can't be better at killing pilots: It would lessen the use of the lazer shot. Ion is great at dealing damage to titans but struggles against pilots. It wouldn't be good balanceing to make him good at both. Northstar doesn't need more tether traps, same with the buff for shooting from air. Why would it do more damage? From a lore and gameplay perspective it doesn't make sense. Northstar needs a buff on her flight core, It exposes her and does ZERO damage, if it exposes her it should at least do a crap ton of damage. Lol the arc wave does stun titans. Legion is a tank he supposed to be slow. It's a trade off. mobility or overcore. Scorch suffers in wide open maps and the wider firewall would help with this but a third incendiary trap? He would deal wayyyy to much damage. It would be nice to have a double barrel guns as a titan kit but not default. Reason why tone is so good is that he is good at EVERYTHING. His weapon is great for killing pilots and within five shots he can get those rockets that unless you're ion or scorch you can't defend. Even with ion and scorch you have to block the rockets preemptively, the only problem is tone has titan kits which allow him to get the rockets even faster, he also has a kit where he has a reinforced particle wall. There is no way to tell the difference. My explanation doesn't do the argument for tone justice. Here's a YouTube video explaining it better:

    I would say more often than not, my games have a good variation of titans. Usually at least one Ion, Scorch may be two Tones & Ronins and the Northstar every now and then with the mix.

    Tone is definitely used he most but that Titan has been nerfed to the ground. It's scary realizing how good some are even after the nerf. (I give credit to pilot not Titan)

    Yes I agree 100% some other titans need love.

    1. Northstar a-the core is horrible. I liked the idea someone proposed, having a full charged rail gun for a few shots.
    b- tether trapped should be shot not tossed and I think they should have a similar affect like an arc grenade. c- an extra dash should be automatic. d- I really like the idea...stronger shot while in flight.

    2. Scorch simple either 2 rounds in the chamber or 2x as fast reload

    3. Ronin I think roninis actually really strong and balanced. Maybe an extra automatic dash

    4. Ion less energy drain, that's it. This Titan is great and very balanced. But I do believe very very slightly decreasing energy drain would be ideal

    5. Legion. Crap this Titan doesn't need anymore help. I actually think it's too "tanky".

    6. Tone wow this poor Titan has been neutered and I feel really bad. If all of the previous things stated above happened I would hope they would bring tone back a bit. Bc I'm seeing way to many coincidences with tone like not getting track marks, rockets flying over titans, salvo plus rockets not dooming titans. It's crazy the poor thing has just been demoralized

    Anyway the game is really good and not extremely unbalanced. I would just like to see some small tweaks

    Yeah. I've seen the video. You asked me about tone being nerfed not how to beat tone. So I'm a little confused

    That was my point. And believe me I can still clean house with tone even after respawn nerfed him to the ground.


    I think we were saying the same thing

    I'm saying tone isn't bad, even after the "nerfs" he is still the best titan in the game, by far

    I think theres always a good balance of titans on attrition, if anything legion needs to be nerfed imo

    I'm seeing sooooo many legions. And yes legion is a bit tanky. I've put 2 salvos into a legion just to kill it. Crazy health
