    Apparently the first one sold 10 million copies, so someone must have enjoyed it. :?

    I can assure you that once somebody will want to make a fangame they'll remind themselves about it and send C&D.

    Last I heard the number of active players for it was below 5 digits. Out of 10 million? Pretty impressive.

    I'm sure most of those suckers will still buy the second one though.

    That 10m is highly misleading,as the game was 5$ and part of that xbox monthly thing,plus had free weekends on PC.Also that is probably 10m players not sales.

    I have to admit, that multiplayer trailer looked pretty sweet.

    I played the beta last week. I liked it but some of the changes made the game worse off than the original, primarily the new rodeo mechanic and the maps in the beta were pretty weak for pilot movement. The playerbase was vocal enough that Respawn made some changes during the beta after people complained to them (upped pilot wall running speed and added Titanfall meter accumulation). Too much of the game was locked off to make a solid judgement of this game vs the original, though it looks like it will not be threadbare like the original when it comes to content.

    I haven't played the Titanfall 2 beta because it wasn't on PC (bad sign), but from the videos I've seen of it and my experience with the BF1 beta Titanfall 2 looks like the better game. I definitely won't buy BF1; I might play Titanfall 2.

    I remember seeing multiplayer trailer for first Titanfall and thinking it looks pretty damn fun. Bought the game on a sale for 10$, started playing and then found out it has 6v6 player limit.

    Heard this shit is the same, so not interested.

    I watched some videos of guys doing the time trial thing and the player character moves so slowly there is no possible explanation for the ability to run on walls besides shooting fire out his ass.

    First game was amazing, honest to God best fun I had in multiplayer FPS in a decade. It lacked staying power for some reason though, I got maybe 4-5 weeks out of it before I quit. But those 4-5 weeks were an absolute blast. Hopefully they'll fix whatever it was missing.

    Titanfall 2 max is 8v8... could be 12v12 atleast


    But with lower number of players, like in counter strike 5v5, you have more impact on the play

    Notice how they decided to release it between BF and CoD. Again.

    Yeah I have been playing it, it is pretty good.

    Multiplayer feels like one step forward one step backwards in many ways. The maps are a mixed bag, some maps have that TF1 feel where you can constantly chain jumps while others seem to put road blocks in various path or have large sections with little to wall jump on. Also the maps feel somewhat over designed compared to TF1 in that they are all designed around lanes where as in TF1 they had a ring + open area design. I prefer the Titans in this game where each one has a fixed loadout with a few tweak since it force the player to learn each Titan, will be good when they balance the meta (40mm is OP again). Pilot abilities are more plentiful and are useful outside of stim this time around, but some are pretty cheap (this game has the cheapest version of cloak I have ever seen).

    Singleplayer is good and even creative, but way too short (4 hours).

    Hopefully it lives and gets a lot of post launch support, PC population was hovering at 3-4 thousand lastnight.

    P surprising how there is next to no talk about this game, given the insane amount of hype around first one. I had no idea that it was even out.

    Single player is fun but short. Combined with remarkable level design, it's 3D shooter platformer. Story is not something to write about but player and titan interactions were designed great. I don't understand EA release window with BF1. T2 single player is far better than BF1.
    No wonder ME Andromeda is not in the spotlight of EA marketing. They want to give BF1 and T2 as much attention as possible post launch.

    Lets make a sequel to a multiplayer game whose servers were empty month after launch.

    Then lets release the game just as two biggest franchises in the same genre are also launching their new games.

    What could possibly go wrong.
