    I'm happy to admit when I jumped the shark. My enthusiasm was about as strong as Derrame's from the outset, but mine died off fairly quickly and I know Derrame has remained pretty enthusiastic about it. Don't get me wrong, I was pushing hard for this mode and I am SO GRATEFUL to Respawn for listening and I am very glad to have the mode available and I know it has made many extremely happy. It's just for me personally, I get a little tired of all the Ronins and Ions. Plus, as great of a mode as it is, it doesn't take me long to remember that these are TF2 titans and not TF1 titans. Man would I love Titan Brawl in TF1. I probably wouldn't sleep for a week. :)

    well, i always encounter mostly Tones in all modes
    Titanfall 2: Attack of the Tones

    in titan Brawl i encounter all the titans, maybe a few more Ronins, but the are no as many as there are Tones i all other modes

    even given the fact that the 40mm cannon was nerfed and now it's very unaccurate,

    i'm starting using it now, and the weapon feels like just a tool to mark enemy titans to shoot them with the tracking missiles, as if the 40mm cannon is just another tool like the sonar, and the main weapon is the tracking missiles

    maybe the devs could make some improvements to other titans so people use more variety in all modes
    or add a new titan similar to Tone
    and make the 40mm cannon automatic
    or add the XO 10 chaingun as an optional weapon for Tone


    i think there are so many Ions in titan brawl because the so many Tones, Ion is the only titan that has the perfect countermeassure for Tone: the vortex shield, with it you can hold all the 12 bulets of the 40mm cannon and shoot them back , and all the tracking missiles too

    it's a good countermeassure for Legion too, but not all bullets can be held, but most of the bullets of the clip


    i don't know about Ronin, i never use it, i just see its sword in my titan's cockpit :(

    Ronin, ion, North Star . I been using scorch. North Star has truly become a pain in the ass to deal with. He's almost on the level of Ronin with annoyance level and difficulty. Ion is very dangerous because of that laser core , but I find it easier to deal with an Ion than a north star most of the time.

    Northstar is hard to deal with, because is a sniper titan, it shoots you from far away and you can't know
    i find Legion and Ronin the most difficults to take down

    I get a bit upset that when you are just about to doom and smoke someone.......a freshly re spawned comrade slides in and pops a shot, then executes.....isn't that your kill?? lol

    Now, that is some tweaking that would be nice. I find that the all out carnage is just fine, but seriously taking other pilot's kills at opportunity?? (3 1/4 dead already) oh come on!!!!!

    Not sure if that's fair or not. I feel like I'm one of those that just does all the fighting and nearly or dooming enemy titans just for others to take the end score, maybe it's just me, I'm better on the ground admittedly vs as a titan pilot but is anyone else wondering the same?.

    Oh well. It's all good, seems heaps of people liked it and like you say Sgt Rawk if it brings people back then cool as, cause the server count at night is starting to suck arse.

    16 minute wait on the Aussie server at 7pm??? lol.

    No wonder I'm playing at 200-250 on the US ones!

    I hear you....i found myself taking titans from full health to hazards but have to reload quick just to see someone get the kill before i could shoot again.....but on the flip side i have probably "stole" my fair share as well.

    He who has not stolen an execution here or there cast the first stone.

    there is no stealing in this game, enemies must be destroyed, the points or score does not matter

    i don't care about points

    I pretty much agree with your philosophy no matter what mode it is Derrame.

    PRIORITY 1: WIN
    PRIORITY 2: Have done everything possible to play the mode at hand effectively
    PRIORITY 3: Hopefully I will have good stats, but only if not at the expense of 1 or 2

    I do not mind if a teammate gets all the glory and even "steals" something from me, so long as it was all in the process of playing the mode as effectively as possible and trying to get the win.

    What drives me insane is when players do not play the mode at hand. This is especially evident in Amped Hardpoint, where you will see people playing Attrition when kills have absolutely nothing to do with winning in hardpoint. Unless the kills took place inside the invisible boundary of a hardpoint, they are meaningless. This is why you will see the MVP of the winning team in Amped Hardpoint have 0 kills sometimes. Or, rather than playing Attrition in hardpoint, while you are losing and only have 1 hardpoint, you see teammates just going, "Wee, look at me flying around the map fast.", or, "Look at me thinking I'm big and bad in my titan, wandering around the map aimlessly." <<< In those cases, I think you should be able to help the other team kill your own teammates. :) You're going to lose anyway with those types of players on your team, so you might as well be able to get some satisfaction out of it.

    Anyway, back to your point, players can steal whatever the heck they want from me as long as they are playing the objective hard and going for the win.

    i play this game because i like it, (just as any other mp game)
    i try my best to accomplish th objectives and be useful for my team,
    sometimes you have luck, sometimes you don't, sometimes you make lots of points, smetimes dont,
    but you can only be certain of this: if you only try to get the most points in each mathc, in each mode, then, you will probably loose and you won't have fun, because is stressful
    way too many factors you cannot control
