    I think time would be better spent developing maps.

    Yes, exactly. Or at least let's put in a Titan vs. Titan mode, which should be fairly easy to do. Just take Pilot vs. Pilot and replace pilots with titans. Or take LTS, remove rounds, remove ability to eject, respawn immediately in new titan if your titan gets killed and first team to get 50 titan kills wins. This would bring titans back as the centerpiece of a game called Titanfall as they should be. It will also benefit newer players so that they can work on their titan fighting skills. Even if they die 10 times, they respawn immediately in a new one every time and can get right back at it. This would also feel the closest to the "Trial By Fire" mission in the Single Player, which in my opinion was the absolute best thing they put in all of TF2. Fighting along side Sarah in her red titan was amazing.

    You are talking my talk. I have posted this everywhere I can; this forum (many times) and on various YouTube channels, here is a sample of the reaction I got:
    "DARK BAWGS god your either a big rager and scream at everything or your trying to kill a great game"

    Clearly there are some out there that just don't get it! I realize that some people want more Pilot vs Pilot and respect their opinion, however with the lack of maps this should be a focus for Respawn. I now understand they plan on another PvsP mode and Skirmish is being put in the rotation. This means that they have 7 pilot focused games (since I have never played Capture the Flag is that Pilots only, if so then that makes 8:
    1. Pilot vs Pilot
    2. Coliseum 1
    3. Coliseum 2
    4. Live Fire
    5. Free for All
    6. New mode - Hunted
    7. New mode - sounds like no Titans but not sure - RAID
    I may have a couple of these wrong since I am not 100% sure there are no Titans in the new modes except Hunted. Please let me know if I am incorrect and I will amend this post.

    Given that they have delivered these modes and only one recycled map (not counting the 2 mini maps for Live Fire) they are really abandoning the whole concept of Titanfall and moving more and more to the "COD" type model. There are fewer Titan modes than PvP modes, what is with this?

    They could easily have also opened the CAP on Regeneration many players are stopped at 10.49 and will just bail out, unfortunately. I for one am 10.49 on the PS4 and will be on the Xbox shortly, then what? Just opening the CAP is not enough they need to give us some meaningful challenges and perks - not those stupid Patches and Banners that just get redundant since you get the same ones over and over. Then there is the Camos, 'nough said!

    It is a sad day on the Frontier and I may be looking at the end of my career unless something changes and soon!

    You are correct, but you are wasting all those points and Happy Hours that could help you to continue to level up - it is just not the same playing to level up a gun. I have a few at 10 already so what I get black camo. I know it is the same with the Regen, so what at least it gives me somewhere to go... I don't know it just seems like the game is complete once you hit 10.49; just shows once again it is an incomplete game.

    @ensc I would love a Titan vs Titan. Just like pilot vs pilot but with titans. I have a great idea. It would be cool if you could only pick one Titan. Meaning you can't have two of the same.

    No I totally get that, I don't really know why they've put a cap, the leveling side of things doesn't really mean anything anyways

    Wow DARK, someone who would say that is totally clueless. They have no idea who you are. You are anything but a rager. You offer extremely good suggestions and analysis.

    This was a great example of your analysis. No one else has taken the 30,000 foot view and put that together clearly showing that there are more PvP modes than Titan modes. Great job DARK! That needs to be pointed out clearly so people can see it and it is great that you did it.

    Yeah, I would have loved this in TF1 as well. I was really hoping that in TF2 they would have removed the CAP completely, where you could have eventually even gotten to Generation 999 Level 50 if you had the time and the desire to. I was hoping they could have done that and then had the programming code just generate new, random, increasingly different challenges that you had to complete as you moved up. If they had done that for TF1, I would probably be around a Generation 99 by now. The other beautiful thing about doing that is that it would give you a much clearer picture of who you were facing. For example in TF1 now, if you see a Generation 10 across from you, you have no idea if he got to Gen 10 last week or almost 3 years ago. But if you saw a Gen 99 sitting across from you, it would give you a much clearer picture of what you were facing.

    Anyway, GREAT JOB DARK!!! Keep it up buddy and don't listen to the clueless ones who don't realize you are only trying to make the game better.

    Yeah, I would be OK with that. I would rather be able to select the Titan I want, but your suggestion is also a good one. Thanks!

    I played 4 rounds and got tired of people just lobbing grenades everywhere at the start. Got killed twice that way. It reminds me of an old Half-Life map called Killbox. Killbox was, like this map, a big cube, but Killbox had a platform high up that you could only reach with a railgun shot at the ground. So it had the ability to control the top and the bottom. I think Live Fire is all the elements of FPS and Call of Duty that I hate: cheap kills, the best jump monkey wins. Hated it.

    Yeah, I think it's time to make Titanfall be about titans again. Way too much focus on modes without titans. As DARK pointed out in his one post the other day, there are actually more modes without titans than modes with titans in a game called Titanfall. I mean, that makes no sense at all. If someone wants to play COD, then go play COD, but don't make what was a beautiful unique world called Titanfall and turn it into just another flavor of COD. That's rediculous. And even on the modes that do have titans, they are so weak and so slow and don't have regenerating shields, which relegates them to just being temporary titan boosts in an otherwise COD game.

    Maps, maps, maps. The rest is just window dressing that is useless without more maps.

    Ik0n88x pointed our some errors in the original post, which I tried to correct above, hope I got it right this time. It doesn't change the point I wanted to make - Respawn is investing their limited resources in building more PVP modes when they should be focused on the core shortfalls. We need maps, a better reward/punishment system and a better/open Regeneration system.

    Thanks Ik I did see your post before it was changed...
