in about 3 hours i noticed

1) Everyone and their mom cloaks and use smart pistol. SO annoying.

2) I suck with titans. I can never tell when I'm about to kill them or get a killing blow.

3) I would love a hardcore mode (no smart pistol, no/limited cloak, no grunts/spectres, no regen HP)

4) Mouse sensitivity settings are awful. I thought since it was like source engine I would be able to set it similarly but, I'm really not satisfied with my current settings. I have to tweak more on my end, but wish it was easier to figure out.

5) Also, why is there no team balance? I keep ending up joining teams that are losing and get heavily stacked. It should rebalance after every match to change things up (keeping friends together of course)

Any recommendations on getting better with titans?

1) You get used to this. I always cloak, but there are much better guns than the smart pistol. I don't get why people use them... Never stop moving and use your stint or cloak when you can.

2) Try playing around in the training simulation more. It's like a game of cat and mouse. Lure them in when your ready to unleash your ordinance or stay out of their reach long enough for them to stop chasing you and go in for the kill. Use your strafe booster a lot when it's charged and don't forget your counter measures (shields or smoke).

3) That'll most likely never happen. The game is based around this cloaking tech and grunt kills. Who knows, they may take away health regen later for custom servers.

4) Mouse sensitivity has been more than fine for me. What's the issue?

5) No team balance atm. Will probably come with a game/ server patch in the near future (hopefully).

1) i would've thought b/c they were noobs but they were lvl 30-40s with almost exclusive use of the smart pistol

2) Does strafe booster just make it harder to hit you? or is there another benefit?

3) An all pilot game would be a lot of fun, a 10v10/12v12 instead of the current 5v5 - but i can see a 24 person titan match being very laggy. unless they limited the # fo titans per team

4) I just haven't been able to optimize it as easily as I could in CS (granted i'm on a stupid bluetooth mouse so that could also be an issue)

5) Yeah - they also need to kick AFK's. Got autolosses because of an AFK titan in last titan standing.

5) Yeah - they also need to kick AFK's. Got autolosses because of an AFK titan in last titan standing.

1) It works great for grunt kills in Attrition. I play with it when I'm bored, but just remember to keep moving and strafing.

2) Booster is great to get you up to speed to catch up to some prey or roll over some grunts/ pilots for extra points. Also great for out maneuvering incoming missiles by strafing behind buildings or dodging incoming enemy primary fire.

3) I bet servers will grow in size. This game is still in it's infancy. Respawn still isn't sure where they're going with it.

4) Yes, could be the BT mouse. Is there a utility that game with the mouse or driver?

5) There's A LOT of work that needs to be done. Everyone can attest to this who've played Titanfall. The balancing atm is kind of a joke, really.

Captain Obvious here but just get as much Titan time as possible smile.gif Play it safe, hang back a bit, don't fight more than one Titan at a time, disengage to recharge your shield if you're under much fire.

Also you see the enemy Titan's health to the lower right of yours, this is absolutely invaluable as you need to constantly compare your health status with theirs and maneuver accordingly.

Just a few thoughts smile.gif

Last night, I was grouped with an "8th Generation" pilot. LOL. That person was using the smart pistol.

The life bar is usually on top of your opponent's titan. You can see a orange bar then a shield (slim blue bar) above that. Once the orange bar is depleted, the enemy titan's life bar will turn to yellow with black stripes like a caution tape. At this point, the opponent's titan is "doomed"and you get the kill. The first person to doom a titan gets the kill. But keep in mind "Doomed" state gives the pilot time to eject if it wasn't set for automatic. It also gives them more time to continue battle for a few more seconds.

When fighting in my titan against another titan, I always use buildings. Quickly moving in and out of cover. I'll also use the electric smoke for cover which is also good for getting rodeo riders off your back. I usually never call my titan unless one of my teammates has one too. It sucks fighting against a titan one on one then to only have another enemy titan flank you. Unless you have a strider then you can just dash your way to safety quickly.

You can also have your titan go in auto pilot mode as a distraction. Jump out, go on foot using under the cover of buildings and rooftops to use your anti-titan weapons. Your anti-titan weapons can drain an enemy titan's life pretty fast.

OC'd my monitor to 70Hz but I can't get 70FPS in-game. It will shoot up when the level loads, but not during actual gameplay. Ideas?

The game is locked at 60 fps if you turn off v sync.
