In a game named Titanfall, shouldn't titans be the centerpiece of the game? Shouldn't they be the most important feature of the game? Shouldn't they be the main thing you are fantasizing about when you are at work or school and can't wait to get home and play the game? This is why I love these forums, because it was only after having some rigorous debates in some other threads and reading others' arguments, comments, concerns and disappointments, that a light bulb finally went off in my head that the title of this thread is what encapsulates the main question we should be asking. I believe and I think most would agree that the answer to that question can only be a resounding YES!!! If the answer is yes, then let's ask two more questions: 1) Were titans the centerpiece in TF1? I would say yes. I very much enjoyed playing as a pilot or in a titan equally, but when I got in my titan, I felt invincible and I felt like I could express myself in ways that made me feel like nothing else in any other game had ever made me feel. 2) Were titans the centerpiece in TF2? I would say no. They were slowed down, made weaker, had their regenerating shields removed and their custom loadouts removed, it took longer to get one and they did not last as long. They were essentially relegated to being a temporary boost in the game for most people. Definitely not the centerpiece though. This was very enlightening to me and I believe it clearly displays and is the best argument to make that they went in the exact opposite direction from where they should have gone. To demonstrate this, let's ask two more questions: 1) What made titans the centerpiece in TF1? I would say the combination of the speed, strength, regenerating shields, custom loadouts and the fact that everyone got a new one every few minutes. All of this combined gave you a feeling of freedom, invincibility and power 2) What would have been the correct direction to go in to make titans be even more of the centerpiece in TF2? I would say they should have been put onto even larger maps and given more speed, more strength, stronger regenerating shields and even more customization in their loadouts. I think those larger maps should have had giant walls on the outside, sort of like some of the walls on the outside of parts of Angel City and the titans should have been given the ability to wallrun on those. I believe this would have held true to what was the beautiful uniqueness that was at the heart of TF1, but it would have built on it and extended it to allow you to feel even more free and it would have allowed you to express yourself even more than the first one. I believe this would have made for an epic game that you would be daydreaming about all of the time whenever you weren't able to actually be playing it. I believe this would have made the titans even more of the centerpiece as they should be in a game named Titanfall.
