    So I was thinking and I haven't spoken to Jay yet. I'm just throwing this idea out there since he has joined me on Titanfall Tuesdays before. Throw some serious questions in here and I'll write them down and ask him if I happen to catch him again. For those that don't know, Jay is the community manager for Respawn.

    How many new maps can we expect before the free DLCs run out? Any plans for a co-op mode like Frontier Defense?

    Excellent questions. Those are probably the 2 most important ones.

    I would like to add:
    1) Will titan loadouts ever be fully customizable?
    2) Is there any chance we could bring the TF1 titans into TF2?
    3) Since Angel City proves it can be done, is there any chance we could bring in all 23 other TF1 maps at some point?
    4) Are there any plans to have continuity between games in same mode? (chat and same players)
    5) Are there any plans to improve matchmaking? If so, any details?
    6) Are there any plans to do anything about cheaters on the PC platform?
    7) Are there any plans to have a multiplayer campaign mode, if for nothing else, to give those who love Amped Hardpoint to have a place to play it as in TF1 even when the Amped Hardpoint lobby is dead?
    8) Are there any plans to improve the minimap and overall situational awareness?
    9) Would it be possible to get rid of the BOOM, white shock flash thing when you die?

    Thanks for doing this Ik0n! I appreciate it.

    No problem. No guarantees that he is going to answer these but if I see him in-game, I will definitely ask him.

    Will there be bigger maps added to the game outside of TF remasters? Also, will there be an option for 1st person POV animations with regards to Titan embark/disembarking?

    what's up.
    tell him about the faction concept , with faction designed titans and pilots .
    Faction based Titans and Pilot models , with faction guns/ weapon for each class and faction.

    ask if AI in more game modes will be added in a bigger way .

    Question for Jay , is the disgusting and horrific online Lag ever going to be fixed ? It's not just me who sees this lag. It's a broken disaster and I'm sick of this shit. I had someone try to Tweet Respawn directly on twitter about it a few times but of course no response what so ever. This broken disaster of a game is lagging more now than ever on a consistent basis. Unplayable mess is what it's turned out to be. I have no idea why some players don't see lag and others do, but i just know there is a big problem.

    So is Jay or anyone gonna do anything about this disastrous problem or should I just stop playing this neglected game all together ?

    For reference, @Jay Frechette recently joined the forum too!

    Keep in mind that the best way to have a conversation is to be respectful, even when you're being critical. Being disrespectful, taking shots, acting like a child (etc) will never be the right path to help this community have the best possible version of Titanfall 2

    Be respectful after 5 months of horrific lag ? And you can say I'm acting like a child that's your opinion. I'm expressing my views in an honest way just a very blunt way. I'm not calling anyone names I'm pointing out the negligence of this game online. There's only so many times people can be ignored before they get more straight to the point.

    I'm fairly certain that if you are as blunt as you say that you may just have to get used of being ignored.

    Omega, WhoIsDo is an extremely fair guy and he is just trying to offer some good advice.

    I do have to vouch for Omega here though. He has been one of the most passionate, reasonable and positive supporters of the game the entire time he's been on here. I've never seen him express his frustration like this before. I would say that the only thing I have ever seen him mention as a problem with TF2 was the lag and he has been doing it in a nice and respectful way for a very long time. I think he is just frustrated that after all this time nothing has been done about it. He is exactly the guy a Jay should be concerned about, because Omega has been a strong, passionate supporter of TF2 and Respawn and has even questioned and debated me on a lot of my complaints. He only has ever had one thing he wanted fixed and it just seems to not get taken care of, so by not fixing this issue they risk losing an extremely strong supporter.

    Thanks En I appreciate that, I have played my heart out with this game I just come to a point where enough is enough. The game is lagging more than I ever seen it. It's been 5 months. All that is going to happen is I'm gonna just walk away from this game. I figured I would express my points and frustrations because the time is now to act. No more bs which is all we get. It's not like my complaints are things I would like to see in updates or more maps or more this , I have been complaining about a problem that literally makes the game unplayable. Jay came on here a few months ago and I think mentioned Respawn was implementing some sort of tracker that can get a better idea of the lag issues lol. Well I mean it's April and it's lagging more than ever. The game is sinking extremely fast , and you have a free to play weekend for NEWCOMERS and you have this awful lag that's a broken mess.

    But it's my fault because I make a blunt post because I actually really give a damn and want to see action done and a revival of this game and franchise.

    No problem buddy. I know you love the game (TF2) even more than I do and you just want it to be better. In fact, you are so passionate about it that I have always longed for you to be able to play TF1 so I could hear what you think about it, because you would be the strongest ambassador for TF1.

    You know what, that is a great point. Now that you mention that, I do remember you or someone else mentioning that they were tracking this.

    Yes i still have Tf1 in my mind. I wished I had that game when it came out I just didn't know any better. I still contemplate on playing it somehow. One of the biggest reasons I haven't is because I didn't want to give up on Tf2 just yet .

    Yes SUPPOSEDLY , the last update ( not the colony) it could have been the live Fire update contained some kind of online tracker that would look for lag or connection problems . But I mean where is it ? What is going on? We are the community, I am the community, I want to go online and play a game I bought without dealing with inexcusable problems like network issues. If they never intend to fix it then fine , atleast I tried to do what i could to keep this game alive.

    If you ever do play TF1, please let me know, I would love to join you if you do. Would you get it on PC or XBox One if you got it? I play on PC. Excuse my ignorance, but I am still not even sure if PC and XBox players were able to play together on TF1. :)

    Yes, good point. I must say, now that I think about it, I probably played maybe 8 games of TF2 yesterday and 4 games of it today and out of those 12 games, TF2 completely locked up and crashed on me 3 out of the 12 games (twice yesterday and once today), so I would say it is completely crashing on me about 1 out of every 4 games and always like this...

    ...the game felt hopeless and then you could feel that our team was finally catching up and just starting to turn it around and I had their MVP lined up perfectly in my sights...(and nothing but a black screen) :)

    Ugghhh!!! Really? :)

    The Lag I'm seeing is called rubber banding. You see the players skip across the map. It's completely unplayable the way it's been. Sure , there could be a number of players who for whatever reason DONT see this problem, but I have seen enough people complain about this that I know it's a problem. If you go to YouTube and type in titanfall lag problems or titanfall ping issues I'm sure you will see examples of what I'm talking. I'm sorry but after 5 months and still no fix this is just gross negligence
