    I cannot work out what deems an assist or a kill if they eject etc. Its not most damage so unless its last hit, but even that seems to not be right either. It should be most damage caused imo as you've done the leg work to mess that titan up

    I think it more or less is just a baseline to actually prove to the team's weather or not a player has been useless or usefull. Probably just tracks weather or not players shoot other players, damage is not a factor.

    For instance, if someone only gets a couple kills the whole game but has 21 assists.... Dude probably not useless. He actually shot something, general gaming knowledge has been shown. Probably not a six year old.

    But if a dude has a couple of kills and like only 3 assists.... Dudes fucking useless. Probably a six year old.

    In TF1 we all remember that it did actually track damage, doubtful that TF2 does.

    Well in LTS I believe it does track titan damage. I have no idea why that stat is only shown in LTS. It's not tracked in attrition or Titan brawl or any other mode that I'm aware of. This stat NEEDS to be tracked. There is nothing worse than looking at the scoreboard at the end of the game and feeling dissatisfied because of a crappy score because you have been robbed of all your kills. Showing Titan damage atleast shows how big of an impact you made on the game.

    Those modes don't track assists either , or am I wrong ? Attrition tracks total score, pilot kills , Titan kills , and grunt kills , but no assists correct me if I'm wrong ?
    Titan damage needs to be shown no question about it. Assists should be shown as well but definitely the damage.

    Titan brawl they tracked assists but no Titan damage. Why can't they just let us see all the stats? Why do they track different for other game modes , I'm confused with that.

    Yeah they're certainly all over the place with their stats this time around.
    In TF1 it was all really clear, especially once they added the rank chip.

    That would be me. :)

    Agreed! I want to see deaths in every mode for several reasons:
    1) Once you get really good at a mode, you can try to challenge yourself by playing defensively as possible to try to keep your deaths at 0.
    2) Having deaths there reveals cheaters more clearly. If you see someone on the other team getting 20+ kills every game, but you can see that he is also having 0 deaths at the same time, it becomes pretty obvious the guy is using a cheater subscription with aim assist and god mode.

    Yes, good point.

    I still don't get why titan brawl has such few stat categories. They added titan damage which is great but now they took away assists lmao They need to show a score as well , I don't think it should just be who has the most kills. They need to tally a score like they do in attrition . This seems like common sense but apparently respawn is content with giving you a barebones anaylsis of the match. I just feel like it's important because a lot of times your kills get stolen or you just don't feel like your performance was correctly represented with the limited stats. Little details like this can go a long way with making the game more fun to keep playing

    Yeah, I agree Omega. And, in modes like LTS or Titan Brawl, I don't think the MVP should be the one who got the most titan kills. I think it should be the one who did the most damage, because a lot of the kills the other players got were because the person who did the most damage had already softened them up and put them on a silver platter for them.
