So are we stuck with dumb AI? Come on at least tweak them to make them challenging or not so obvious.

From the video they don't look very smart at all.

Its a joke. Lets not forget to have a sense of humor. After all those bright grunts are only possible with the processing power of 300,000 servers.

Without the cloud it could probably only be 32 vs 32 with other humans.

Yet im sure if this game was coming to PS4 this wouldnt be a problem, and im sure Killzone is a much better shooter according to many of you on this site (not all) lol the hypocrisy, its going to be a good if not great game guys, and im sure PS4 will have many good games aswell, just not Titanfall, so let it go please

Aye, good job skynet wasn't powered by cloud ai, otherwise John Connor could've just stood still and beaten a t800 to death with a shoe.

Ever heard of a negative preview?? Usually doesn't happen because that could prevent the previewer from having access to the final game for free.

It could be bad or it could be good. You haven't played it either but I bet you think it's gonna be a great game because you're biased just like any X1 fan.

i remember in Streets of Rage i could put a better AI for the enemies and i dont think SEGA was using powah of da clawwd at that time.

Never played titanfall barely watched any videos of it, but from what I see it lookalike cod with robots. I will wait for a friends review before I take to it.

@lolCHILLbro - While I did enjoy Killzone 2 for many months, hated KZ3 (online), and enjoyed KZ:SF, Titanfall is going to suffer the same fate.

It's a game that will be hyped pretty good by the underdog console owners and many will love it. But the game will generally be regarded as a failure among the online FPS community.

I'm sorry to have to break this to you XB1 console owners, but Titanfall is simply Killzone's brother from another mother.

@ Skip_Bayless

"Ever heard of a negative preview?? Usually doesn't happen because that could prevent the previewer from having access to the final game for free."

It has a lot more to do with the nature of a preview, than anything else. Similar to an alpha or beta, a preview is almost always based off an incomplete version of the game, which may have various problems or issues. Since people know that they're still working on the game, it doesn't make a lot of sense to call out problems like you would see in a review.

If I was to say Titanfall had too many popins and graphical glitches in my preview, people would probably reply "It's an incomplete product, of course there are going to be problems". Preview builds can also change vastly between conventions, with big fixes or key differences implemented. So to sum it up, it has less (I would surprised if it had any) to do with messing with their free copy and everything to do with the fact you typically expect problems and things to change between the preview and finished product, so most writers try to focus on what it did right and readers are expected to know that a preview is just an idea of what to expect (similar to a demo).

I'm pretty sure everyone was excited about this game when it was assumed that it was a timed exclusive.

Oh how opinion changes...
MysticStrummer  +   627d ago
@george - "Everyone complaining about bots have never played Titanfall."

That's not what I saw here on N4G from the MS fans. What I saw was a lot of "It's only an alpha so the AI will get better". People liked the game but definitely made note of the bad AI. I'm pretty sure you were one of them but I'm not going to look back at your comments and confirm that.
MysticStrummer  +   627d ago
I'm also curious about the cloud's role in all this, since just a few days ago it was claimed that the cloud made the AI possible… or something to that effect anyway.


Oh I see… they didn't claim it made the AI better, but the cloud supposedly let's them have the AI in everyone's game… or something like that.
Bigpappy  +   627d ago
The rep did not say that the Ai will remain dumb. The AI difficulty can not be adjusted by the human players, but there will be different types of Ai. This is an Alpha build. Could go either way.
Volkama  +   627d ago
The AI is server-side. They've said that before now.

The community manager is only answering the question on whether or not you can change the difficulty. Yes it's a little ambiguous, because there were 2 questions asked and only one answer given. But this headline is presenting it as fact, rather than getting confirmation.

Moba, fps, cloud, trolling.. who knows with titanfall anymore. I hope it's good, but it turns my belly and scares me that it might be a money ploy.

Edit: If you have played a moba then you get the point of "dumb ai" (cannon fodder ai)... they are their to level your "titan/hero" up, not too really impact the match.

So much story about cloud and 300 000 servers! Bullshit!

Let's see what we have : 6 vs 6, noob friendly game, dumb and dumber A.I., FPS with zero challenge, in graphics terms game is mediocre ( even from Xbone conference from E3 trailer which is running on GTX 7XX series GPU graphics are mediocre or PC version on Gamescom ) and 720p on a, so called, "next-gen" console Xbox One, a multiplayer ONLY game for a 60$. God damn, is good to be a gamer!

For a reference :

Starhawk ( SP and great MP campaign ) : 40$ at launch

M.A.G. ( MMOFPS ) 25$ - 30$ at launch
VENOMACR1227  +   626d ago
You can't make the AI super tough, because the casual player wont enjoy it by getting killed by bots constantly. Make them too easy and it's easy to kill them. It's tough to find the perfect balance for everyone. Game is an arcade shooter, its not a simulation.
frostypants  +   626d ago
It is just server-side AI...That way it behaves consistently across the clients. It's not magical or innovative and it's not something exclusive to Microsoft's cloud. It is an obvious (and common) way to handle AI in a multiplayer game.

That won't stop the PR machine from hyping it as revolutionary though.

Amazing this is what constitutes as 'revolutionary' with an online 'next-gen' FPS game. Which is to make gameplay easier with noob bots at a ratio of 3:1 to human players. I mean come on, as if COD wasn't easy enough with human players... yet they had to add in mentally challenged bots?

Pretty soon at this rate, online mutiplayer will be 1 human player and 31 bots who are 'online' with the cloud.

lol, Titanfail. The new revolution in FPS gaming, to pander primarily to the players who suck and to eventually do away with competitive PvP entirely. Because hey, we don't want to offend the bad players by killing them in a virtual environment, now do we? After all, bad players make up most of the market.

I gotta say Xbox One, you deserve this game. It's very fitting, a 'revolutionary' game for one 'revolutionary' console.

This doesn't surprise me at all. It's an evolution of CoD, which as you said was already one of the more casual friendly games around. The Titans are a big sci fi oriented killstreak reward, and even if the AI improved the bots make them easier to get. Now it will be quite entertaining to watch the backpedaling from those who said "It's only an alpha so the AI will get better".

"To help newbies get enough points to be able to use their titan." - some guy on the internet

SO first off, you were already pointed out as being incorrect about how to get a titan. Maybe you should learn about a game before you defend it? Secondly, if a game is making it easier for new players to get points, then the game is terrible. Whatever happened to skill shooters?
Blaze929  +   627d ago
I assumed it would be adaptive A.I. like Forza 5. Once the more and more people played Titanfall, the more changing the A.I. would be - which could make for an almost always changing multiplayer environment.

Props… or kudos… or whatever, for not ignoring the AI issue. My first thought at seeing the headline was that the people who've been saying things like "It's only an alpha build so the AI will get better" would suddenly have no problem with the AI. I think you may have said something about the AI getting better before release so it's good to see that you aren't backpedaling. If you didn't say anything about the issue in the first place, then nevermind. lol

But you'll always have guys fighting windmills and coming up with the most ludicrous excuses and twists , to defend anything that could look bad .

I played a couple rounds in the Alpha on a friends Xbone and I'm not going to lie. It felt like I was fighting AI more than actual people online. There was one round where I had 15 bot kills and only 2 Pilot kills.

Like wtf? It doesn't feel online at all. They need to rid of the bots or add more players in. For a game this big, 6v6 isn't going to work. Especially when they're trying to fill the void with dumb AI.

As someone that is in the Alpha Testing, I'll say the AI (GRUNTS) can be dumb at times. The other AI types, I wont reveal anymore names aren't dumb. I put my TITAN in guard/follow mode all the damn time, and it dominates until another human controlled TITAN tries to destroy it. Then I have to intervene, and pilot the TITAN myself.
H0RSE  +   626d ago
You are not understanding the purpose of the AI...

They are not designed to serve as reliable teammates/enemies. They wanted the team aspect to be comprised of only humans. The AI are not functioning as bots. Think of it like minions from a MOBA - they serve a specific purpose, and you cannot change it - they are intentionally dumb.

Also to add to mos6142 it's to help with the "story" elements of the online. There are different ai, probably most is cannon fodder, but I'm sure they will have armored and maybe boss type ai to mix up the combat to finish your missions ect.
staticdash22  +   627d ago
A guy ran into a room, with about 10 bots. They stood there while he killed them all and he was in the corner and reloaded like 3 times in a row. To make matters worse, the player cloaked while a bot ADS in his line of sight and it didn't even fire.

The icing on the cake was when a bot was at the far end door turned around during this whole scene and he just walked up to it and got a melee kill.

And this is what worries me the most. You get 20 xp/points or whatever for a bot kill and 100 for a human kill. With how utterly stupid the ai is, you should need at least 20 bot kills to equal 1 human kill.
Patrick_pk44  +   626d ago
Mathematics 101.

5 AI kills = 20 xp, so 5 x 20 = 100xp = 1 human kill

So about 20 AI kills = 400xp = 4 human kill

Basically AI will be what levels you the most, because they are developed terribly.

Titans aren't killstreaks...

Killing shortens the time to get a Titan
Killing AI barely shortens it though. Killng players/Titans/Objectives gives way more

Pretty much -> The more you play the game the way it's supposed to be played, the quicker you get a Titan. The playes who play the game the way it's supposed to be played wil 'lead the victory' so to say, as they'll be the best players, and have Titans more than anyone who tries to play it by only killing bots or ignoring objectives

A real problem with COD was camping and ignoring objects and aiming for killstreaks. That is simply not in Titanfall. What can a camper do a player who has his Titan? Nothing. He'll have to stop camping if he wants to not get viciously raped. He'll have to move around the field to attack human players and objectives.

Btw, you can not do anything in the game, you'll still get a Titan after the time limit is up

He/She is not saying that this is the final code on the Ai and can not be adjusted, but that the players can not adjust the difficult settings for the Ai. There will be different types with different difficulties.

Dumb Ai worked out fine for Kill Zone. Many came on this site bragging how great the game is yet the Ai is obvious target practice as documented by the many review.

That being said, that does not mean this game should also get a pass. I know this its the Alpha, but the Ai should be smart enough to shoot you if there have a gun and you are within their view. I have not played any demos yet and have not witness Ai as weak as some are saying, but the don't seem very challenging from the video of some skilled players. I would say though, that if the match making is not good in a shooter, some human players are still dumber than the worst case I have heard described.

"I have not played any demos yet and have not witness Ai as weak as some are saying, but the don't seem very challenging from the video of some skilled players"

I think you have to look the videos again there's one with a guy that enters a room with 10 bots, recharge his gun 3 times and kill them all, just for the sake of being sure about the almost non existent AI.
Bigpappy  +   626d ago
@Eonjay: I am not trying to ay people should not criticize the Ai. That is fine that if you notice a flaw you point it out. I jut was trying to correct the way people seem to interpret the PR comment from Respawn. I think they are saying the user can not adjust the Ai, and that they would not all be dumb.

To add to my perspective, I would say that responsive Ai would be essential to keeping players emerged, but they should still not be the main focus to the game. It is really about the 6vs6 real players, trying to take each other down. The bot are both a vehicle and impediment towards that goal. But to properly balance the competitive side to the game, they can't have Ai that is overly dominant either.

@Arkardo: If that is the case, where the Ai does not try to defend themselves, then I would agree with you that that is indeed LAME.

Last thing to is, SONY FANBOYS 😄 I remember when this game was announced all the hype that everyone got even Sony people. Then Microsoft goes and announces that it is a exclusive, many Sony fanboys were like oh its only a timed exclusive blah blah blah, this is the best part the second EA came out and said the game wasn't coming to PS4 you guys started hating on the game bringing up the oh who cares its just CoD with Mechs lol. Love that so before if it was coming to PS4 it looked like the greatest game this year but now its the worst game.

According to this story (tweet/post… whatever) the AI can't be changed.

People hate on CoD all the time, regardless of platform, and this is an evolution of CoD. People hated on TF from the beginning, and hate does not = Sony fanboy.

Mystic strummer... Why are you here? I saw you post about a week ago that you had no interest in this game at all.

I have seen you in every tf article since then talking shit. Why are you talking about a game you don't care about? You are just another ps fankid spreading bullshit. You are you ilk are absolutely pathetic. Your opinions carry no weight. I don't understand how people can be so immature. You make me embarrassed to be a Sony fan.

I love how Sony fanboys like you are trying to pretend your fanboy brigade isn't the problem here. Anyone who uses this site knows who the scumbag Sony fanboys are. Ever titanfall article is full of those people, and it's been the same fanboys in every article since the game was announced. You can't even get more agrees than disagrees for saying something good about tf. Sony fanboys are a goddamn disgrace.

i would probably buy the game if it were for the ps4 yes, but its not, so no buy. this HURTS the game, more than helps it. this would have been a million seller on the ps4, but now its stuck on one console, and the weaker selling console at that. this is doing nothing but hurting the game, in general. have fun with it. if it doesn't meet sales, it's going to look terrible for ms.

... actually, Crustified, Sony fanboys AREN'T the problem. They're not the ones that made this gloriously bad AI. They're not the ones that have been praising the cloud like a god and yet failing to deliver. And they're not the ones making any excuse possible to shrug away this game's flaws.

How about, rather than being stuck in your own little myopic world, you actually stop choking on MS for long enough to see what it is people are saying? Amazing how you didn't even BOTHER to address that, isn't it?

Hmm, Mystic is addressing the problems, while Crustified is ignoring them and just attacking somebody. Which one looks more like a fanboy?

"Good video. I wasn't interested in the game before the player count thing emerged, so the news doesn't impact me at all. "

2nd comment
"Yeah I have yet to see any footage that shows all those AI being involved. though since I don't want the game I don't look for footage. It does look pretty empty to supposedly have that many AI along with the players. A CoD like game with jetpacks and big robots will probably do great, but it doesn't interest me."

there is mysticstrummers posts that i was talking about. why is he here? this guy is here to be negative, nothing else. his opinion on this game DOES NOT MATTER. i refuse to acknowledge his complaints. im sorry, but you really have to be a pathetic fanboy to follow a game that you dont care about.

not a suprise hicken would swoop in and stand up for his fellow ps4 cultists. hicken, you are one of those scumbags i am referring to.

as for "choking on ms"... seriously guy? you are going to accuse me of choking on a company lol. oh the irony...

i dont play companies, i play games. if i want a game, i play it. i dont give a fuck what system it is on. i have them all.

Many of us commenting are planning on getting it for PC. Don't forget that. We're just concerned. I'm sure some people with XBO's will get it on PC, as well. The point is...we want to make sure it's a good game and some of this latest news worries us.
BlackCarrot  +   627d ago
Disappointing that there is no mod kit. It would've been cool to see what people could muck about with, in respect to the AI, the titans and other features of this game.

I read the twitter and I think it said "No" just for the "Change AI" and not "AI Server based".
first1NFANTRY  +   627d ago
Sounds like PR mambo jumbo to me. If the A.I can't be changed they I think it's safe to say they will be as braindead as the alpha footage we have all seen.
ic3fir3  +   626d ago
but have not yet realized that bots are just minions like league of legends, is only assistance, grunts do not have double jump or have wallrun.and titans
  grunts do not count for kills, not to K: D.
the team has to pull the waves of grunts, to better meet the objective, as well as serves as players have to farm titans faster, never seen anyone complain about the poor AI of the minions of the league of legends or dota 2, here is the same thing, just a fps. seems strange in fps, but it is brilliant and different.
stop hating, more multiplayer games like titanfall must exist, because all the sick people ta cod and bf, is always the same, titanfall is not a cod with mech has parkour is more balanced, is more skill based and competitive , is much faster and does not have camping as cod, titans are not OP, invisibility only worth against titans, but is not effective against players
CapsLocke  +   626d ago
I like how every article about Titanfall causes a storm of hits. Gee I wonder why :D
Kivespussi  +   626d ago
Because it's a popular game? Pretty much every big AAA game will get a lot of media attention before release no matter if the news would be big or small.
denero1  +   626d ago
I don't get it from all the previews i've read it seems to be a great game to look forward to but whenever I get on n4g people say it is going to suck and be another cod

This game is never possible without Cloud. The AIs are powered by Cloud. But the AI are not server based. Okay things get confusing here already. I think they really need to stop bragging about the Cloud. As Cloud is merely a computing term and hardly even a technology by itself and it does not do magic things that is not possible without Cloud. This really mislead the general public on what exactly Cloud is and what does it actually do. That is why we have people going around saying things like Oh XO has Cloud and it is going to own the generation. Even as extreme as calling out PS4 inferior GDDR5 and the Cloud is much better. Man this is sad how delusion people get these days. Apparently with the improvements done on technologies really make humans becoming more stupid as a species.
Majin-vegeta  +   626d ago
They mention the cloud.As far as I know PC&360 dont run on this so called "MAGICAL CLOUD".So how can it run on those systems??when they clearly said it was only possible due teh cloudz on X1??

OT:Respawn needs to take KZ2 AI and implememnt it in.Then will the game only be a true challenge.
kopicha  +   626d ago
Unless I understand you wrongly. If I understand you correctly, Then please do take note that the "Magic Cloud" is actually working across all 3 platforms XO/360/PC of the game. Also they did say before directly from Respawn that it is because of the Cloud that only made this game possible where it could not been done in the past.

As I have previously said, believe it or not but it is fact. Cloud is nothing but a terminology of computing. Ai on server is nothing new by today's standard. And it wont be any difference with the word "Cloud" attached to it.

Sony fans taking a quote about Titanfall out of context and blowing it out of proportion? You don't say!
