Titanfall - Why The Bots Are Awesome

From Vault of the Gameverse:

"That, and I was real tired of killing bots. I just didn't care. Bots here, bots there, bots everywhere. And they're so easy to kill. In the meantime, I was trying to play a multiplayer game...

Then… I finally tried something Respawn had been tweeting about for a day or two. “How many Spectres have you hacked?”, they would ask. Upon my first “hacking” of a Spectre (which was unfortunately in the last hour or two of the Beta) was when I completely fell in love and thought, “Please give me more bots!!!” Seriously."

Bots didn't bother be none,
I understood their purpose.
No issue for me.

Understanding the purpose of the bots is not the same thing as being disappointed there aren't more players.

I'm much more okay with the bots and smaller player count after having played quite a lot of the Beta. It's a great game and I can't wait for the full version.

I wasn't aware that the specters will follow you around. They don't do much damage against pilots, but they are effective against titans. If i would have realized I could lead a gang of them, I would have tried hacking a few.

Overall, I didn't play a single game where bot kills decided the outcome, so their inclusion in the game doesn't bother me at all. I think they add a nice touch... like the NPC cannon fodder that fights along side you in a SP game.

Give me a break!The silliness of some journalist writters is just overwhelming!

Wait a freaking minute here , those were bots I was killing?.....DAMNIT ! I thought I was a beast at that game....

And THAT is why to some people it is fun. This is a casual game at its best, no skills required. Auto-lock multiple headshot pistol? Yeahh! Easy one kick kills? Invisible guy running killing dumb AI bots with said kick and pistol? No destructions, no bullet damage to walls, 6vs6, no single player and still $60, sub-par graphics. And then I read an article with the tittle "next gen starts with Titanfall".

The money going into Titanfall's marketing campaign is BIG. Big enough to make someone say "next gen starts with Titanfall" if you know what I mean.

Lol at the excuses for ai that is so stupid it's pointless. Titanfall + smart pistol + grunts= the Nubiest online game I've ever played. It's too bad the game had such potential until they added the ai bots that just prove ms cloud is a joke. If this game was on ps4 I'd still be saying the same thing. No game can be considered competitive with ai bots that huddle in groups crouching looking at the ground and can't hit you with a bullet if you standed still. Titanfall game ends....check scoreboard.....30 grunt kills......6 pilot

Take away the ai bots and smart pistol add 8 vs 8 or 10 vs 10 with little bigger maps and add a perk system where you actually have to earn a Titan with skill.

Well, I guess have fun playing knack till 2016.

IRapeLolis1852d ago

No need to,The best console version of Titanfall 2 will be on PS4 with exclusive content in 2015. Hope X1 owners enjoy Ryse and inferior versions of everything for this entire Gen. Have fun with that I guess.

I_AM_ CANADIAN_19891852d ago

Rather play battlefield 4, killzone shadowfall , infamous second son, watchdogs theif and guess what all those games will be the best versions so enjoy you're 720p for 7 years and let's be honest Rythe the best version of Titan fall is pc. Which is the beta I played .

wish this game was a ps4 exclusive because unlike apologetic xbots as a majority Sony gamers wouldn't accept ai bots as a substitute for 6vs6. Respawns twitter would be lit up right now with disapproval . I could play this game on my 7000 dollar pc if I wanted, but I refuse to support ai bots in supposedly competitive multiplayer especially stupid useless ones.

TheSaint1852d ago

Yeah, most X1 people don't know a lot about games which is why they bought an X1.

That is all you think is on PS4 isn't it, poor deluded MS fanboy.

k3rn3ll1852d ago

So u don't consider DOTA competitive? I see. How many pilot of kills did u have during the beta is what I want to know
