    (sorry if this has been discussed before, the forum search didn't result in anything.)

    So now that why have been able to play the game and all the game modes, would you guys like to see new game modes in the future? If so, what game modes and why? Let me know what you guys think. I really think we could use a few more game modes as long as too many aren't added. Gears of War 3 suffered heavily from it's large playlist(had like, 14 different modes or something) and with a small fanbase as is, it was nearly impossible to find full lobbies for a lot of the game modes.

    Execution/S&D.
    I like the idea of a no respawn one life game mode (sorta like Last Titan Standing) but with no Titans ( or at least make it point based and not time based). Burn cards would not be allowed. It could be execution style like GoW or S&D from Cod and have an objective.

    Pilot Only.
    Just a TDM version of the game with no Titans. Could be nice to take a break from giants robots everywhere and just have a good old fashioned killfest.

    Rotating weekend event.
    Stealing this idea from Gears of War 3(guess what game I've put thousands of hours into). Every weekend there could be a fun playlist, snipers only, only shotguns, only titans, only pistols etc). I think it could be a nice break from serious TF and just enjoy a silly version of the game.

    Looks like I can't edit after someone has replied. Seems silly.

    Just thought of horde mode. I wonder if they would want to put that in. Seems like it could be fun trying to hole up somewhere defend from waves of AI. Then again, horde mode is insanely outplayed at this point, so maybe they would like to steer the game away from that.

    No game modes without Titans.

    The game just won't work without them.

    The maps are big, so you need Titans to fill the space.

    Without Titans, your only option to fill the space is bots, but without Titans, killing bots is completely useless as there's no benefit- especially if the goal is to kill all enemy pilots to win as you suggested.

    Then your solution would have to be to instead increase the player count- but this would be too chaotic. Everyone would have to camp, as the moment you set foot outside a building, you'd be immediately sniped. Players are only able to survive outside building because the cover that the chaos of the bots and Titans provide, but without them, there is no such safety.

    Search and destroy
    Pilot only mode with more players (maybe without bots?)
    King of a hill - have one space that players are fighting over, bit bigger than current 3 obcjetives to capture
    Titan deficiency - ffa mode, only 1 titan, whoever kill the titan gets to be titan and so on
    FFA death match - maybe without bots and more players?

    A Search and Destroy game
    An Attack/Defend game
    A Rush styled game

    Personally I would like to see a "Co-Op game mode" with the Campaign maps and modes

    Maybe a "night" map

    I like the TD idea. That could a fun weekend event. FFA could be fine with 6 people but with Titans it wouldn't work. It would be, whoever gets the titan first wins, mode.

    A rush style game would be really fun. We would just need that in a dlc and have a huge map. Plants vs Zombies garden warfare has a mode like that and I really enjoy it. Never played much of BF but when I did I only played rush. Co-op campaign or like co-op horde?

    Not sure about that. I'd like to have many people for ffa, maybe 12? And then if someone got titan first it's very possible he'll be ganked upon by other players so that would ballance things up :p

    It's been mentioned a ton of times, but this shouldn't turn into Pilotfall.

    The only other game mode I'd like to see happen in the DLC is a coop mode. Yes, Horde mode may have been done to death now, but waves of grunts, spectres (that hopefully get stronger over time) and Auto Titans sounds like a decent fit.

    Also a game mode similar to Ghost Recon: Future Soldier's "Conflict" would be interesting. Different objectives to complete that appear at random locations on maps. You have capture and hold objectives, bomb plants and the like happening in a single game mode.

    Pilots-only gametypes... Either on smaller maps, or an increased player count. Game modes with and without Titans. The more gametypes and options, the better!

    I still love the regular gametypes with AI tho, it would just be cool to have game modes where it is just players going against each other.

    One game mode with no Titans won't ruin the game. Just allow people to play the game in a different way, even if it's more generic.

    As long as Titanfall continues to see growth and a solid community number. Like I said, GoW3 suffered heavily from having too many playlists.

    Yeah mode without Titans would be nice addiction, an opportunity to play shooter with great mobility. I started to enjoy mechs (sorry, Titans) more and more, but still, playing pilots only would be cool too. One game mode won't suddenly change this game to pilotfall, and there's gonna be tons of people who won't even play it, so don't worry that its gonna shift to that. But there's many players who want to try it so it's no harm in giving it to us either.

    Why not a Hunter mode where you go out and murder some innocent wildlife? I'd love to bad me a Gargantuan from the airfield.

    The fear is not that it will ruin the game.

    It just won't work. The gamemode you imagine won't be the fun mode you think it would be.

    These people asking for modes with no Titans fail to see how the rest of the game falls apart without them.

    If you want Titanfall with no Titans, go play Tribes.

    I understand it won't work on larger maps. They could have a small map pack dlc and include that game mode. Never played tribes so nah.

    lol nty. That game was all right but I'd rather not touch it again.

    That won't work on the grounds that it would severely splinter the community. And as you're making it sound, it'll only cater to a very select few people that want this. While Respawn have been awesome at catering to community suggestions, I don't think this serves EA from a financial perspective. There's just not enough profit in there to make it worthwhile for Respawn to assign resources

    I don't think it would splinter the community as much as you think. I agree it'll nab a few players from the norm but if they want to regen they will HAVE to play reg. It could just be nice for gun challenges and something to change up the pace of the game for a bit. Would you still be against it if it was just a rotating weekend event?

    If it was a paid DLC, I'd be against it.

    I don't think I'd mind it being a custom match option when we get private lobbies. It's very much up to the groups of players that want to do this time of game mode, but I don't think it should be included as an official game type.
