    hi there pilots,

    i've been playing with the new Glitch in the Frontier DLC/Update

    i share some impressions

    the new main menu looks really good, this is the menu the game should have had since day 1

    i like the new matchmade sound
    i like Gates' new appearance

    i've played several matches in the map glitch , with MRVN faction selected
    this faction is for people who does not want to hear voices, this robot is useless, other navigators give you info, this one, makes some shy noises, but it's ok

    i never, ever had lag or a single bug in this game, but it seems there is something wrong

    i played with the Ion titan, the splitter rifle reloads by itslef, the animation starts and it's suddenly interrupted and starts again, and over again, then, the laser shot , the animation starts, is suddenly interrupted, starts again, again
    the same is with weapons reaload animations, the C.A.R.'s animation starts is suddenly interrupted and starts again, and again,
    (and i really like that C.A.R. reload animation, together with G2a and R101, one of my favourites :) )

    the pilot is stuck when running, stuck on the ground, on middle air,
    and lag,
    never ever had lag, not even downloading and using internet connection on other programs,
    now my character teleports to the sides or forwards, or backwards, i shoot an enemy pilot, his health is depleted and i see him keeps running and after a few seconds he falls and i hear the sound of the kill,
    too much lag, i'm running, no enemy pilots nearby and suddenly an enemy pilot killed me with melee, wtf,


    now there is a black box with a blue circle on my banner, wtf

    i'm not familiar with the new time counter on MP, but i hink it's no working as intended,
    it says estimated time 15 minutes, then it's suddenly connected, ok, that is good,
    and maybe it says 2 minutes and i wait more than two minuts, not a big problem, but i share the info maybe the devs find it useful if they want to tweak something

    they must remove the Devotion or make it as useless as the Spitfire, it is still overpowered

    and my character starts stuck on the ground, i dont see the weapon, i can walk through the ground textures

    and melee is still not working as intended, enemy pilots fly like an arrow shot right to me

    friendly pilots are invisible in the dropship, when the navigator talks right before we jump

    my character is stuck on the ground textures of the dropship

    and some enemy pilots not taking any damage from any weapon, i shoot thembut their health bar stays the same

    the weapon is invisible sometimes, the car or any other assault rifle or smg, i see the bullets firing, but the weapon disappeared

    when i see th kill cam when an enemy kills me, i see my pilot teletransporting, like watching a slideshow or screenshots one after the other

    there is a new general map, it's free, ok that is good, but i don't like this glitch map, it looks like a gigantic living room,
    it has no context of the war on the frontier, who thought it was a good idea to put a general multiplayer map, that looks like the tutorial? who wants to play houndreads of hours in a map that looks like the tutorial map? it's stupid!

    but that is just my personal opinion, i'm not attacking anyone

    i hope Relic, marked for death and frontier defense come out asap

    First of all, wow Derrame! You are extremely observant and very thorough. I'm asking this question as a compliment, but have you ever thought of being a reviewer or critic or something like that? I mean, you notice many things that would just blow right past me.

    Now, I am going to take an unusual position for me and actually defend Respawn on some of these things.

    I actually think this is extremely useful, and being a computer programmer, I can understand how it is working. The first number will probably be fairly high, and not necessarily accurate, because they don't have as much information to go on, so it might start at like ">15min". Then, as it has time to assess all other players who have joined or left it will most likely drop to like "8min" and then if things get better it might drop down to "3 min". It is constantly assessing changes in players, networks, etc. It is better for it to overestimate on the first number and then drop down if things get bettter. I actually find this very useful, because as long as the number keeps dropping, you know it is worth waiting, but if it doesn't drop, then it's time to leave.

    Actually, I admit that this is exactly how I felt when I saw that they lazily, in my opinion, had just used "The Gauntlet" to make a map instead of creating something brand new. I'm happy to admit that I was wrong. In my opinion, this map is excellent. It really has some of the best wallrunning lines of any map in TF1 or TF2, reminiscent of War Games or Rise from TF1. I understand what you are saying Derrame that it is a little plain or doesn't fit into the context of the frontier, but just for the sheer wallrunning routes, I think it is a winner. Great job Respawn! I am happy to admit when I'm wrong.

    No new modes yet, just a new map.

    Oh, sorry, I didn't notice that Derrame had already answered this.

    Just realised. How ridiculous why put it in the patch notes relevant to this update and not just in the news....

    I just wanted to make a suggestion about the Glitch map and I wouldn't make it unless I hadn't just done it myself. Try going into a private match, just yourself, and select the Glitch map and maybe Capture the Flag mode and just spend 45 minutes to an hour learning the map and practicing wallrunning routes. It truly is one of the best wallrunning maps in either TF1 or TF2. You also learn that the map is a perfect mirror of itself if you draw a line down the middle. Once you learn one half, then you know the entire map. It's also a very good titan map, because it has a lot of places where you can really play some nice cat and mouse games. This map will be awesome when they put out the new Titan Brawl mode.

    I noticed some dudes stopping in mid air in front of me, although it made well for the Wingman kills............clearly there was something wrong there, unless there is a new type of hover where you hide yourself in mid air.......

    Cool map though, love it.

    Can someone tell me why in the world respawn has said nothing about the lag issues. They said they were "looking" into it in December. I just don't understand. I don't think people realize how much this sucks. This game is one of my favorite games all time and I can't play due to the lag. I'm not the only one either, I guarantee there are thousands who have this problem. It's all over the Internet. Everything from high ping to lag spikes to tick rates.

    Seriously this sucks fix the damn game!


    PS- I really thought the class action lawsuit was silly. But I'd be willing to sign it now because I can't play the game and I personally know many who can't play the game. So reword and I'm on board.

    i think that too


    the wallrunning is very well designed, yes, but i get stuck on the walls or in the air

    i wonder what happened with the war between IMC and Militia is exclusive of single player?

    This new map is outstanding, brilliant design the wall running is perfect and the best example of how titanfall should and could be played. Constant movement , fast paced action , heart pumping fast at all times. Great map. Is this map available in attrition mode? I put it on 24/7 but Attrition was not available. Pretty much only played ctf , which is hard but definitely awesome on this fast paced map. As well as live fire.

    Dude I have been complaining over and over about this, the lag has been a horror show. Let me tell you , I plugged my Ethernet cable from my PS4 directly into my modem and there had been NO LAG since I did this. Previously I had the Ethernet cable plugged into my router , now when I play titanfall I bypass the router and plug it directly into the modem. So far after about a good 14/15 hours I have seen NO LAG. Before I did this the game was basically unplayable. So if you can give this a shot. I don't know what your setup is but if it was similar to mine then give this a shot.

    I like the map. Very different LTS as the outside lanes are so tight. I need to figure out how to play that now. I didn't have any of the issues mentioned while playing last night. ( I did however after taking a week off dropped my FOV from 110 to 90) and didn't have any lag issues on Xbox (for last night at least).
