DUDE pilot only 8v8 sounds amazing.
SJPFTW  +   371d ago
meh ... essentially just makes it any other generic first person shooter. Titanfall without titans? That is like Uncharted without climbing.
UnHoly_One  +   371d ago
Agreed, that sounds terrible.
Dan_scruggs  +   371d ago
Ya. More options is a terrible idea. How dare the try and accommodate every type of player.

Titanfall without titans or bot, sounds like Advanced Warfare to me..
4Sh0w  +   371d ago
Yeah I got to disagree with you there nick, why the hell would I want to play TITANfall without TITANS dropping eveywhere?

OK, maybe to switch things up for a match or two but then it wouldn't feel like the same game..that can sometimes be a good thing, but imo in this case that's not a plus.

Now where's all the apologists that said this will never and should never happen.

If the game launched with this mode, I'd still have it. I've been screaming this since I heard the game was filled with bots.
DLConspiracy  +   371d ago
I didn't know people were still complaining about AI in the game. I thought they were just playing the game and enjoying it for what it is. An arena based online multiplayer shooter.

They should have done 8 vs 8 at the beginning. Many more people would have bought the game then.
Funantic1  +   372d ago
That's true. I loved the game just hated the bots. I just traded mine in. I might just go buy it back for this.
aimforthehead  +   372d ago
I love how before release many were very worried about mandatory bots making the game worse, they assured everyone bots would make the game amazing, and it turned out bots make it suck. I returned my titanfall + season pass right after purchasing. This is good, but until they add a server browser its still a no buy.

i leave TF while ago, now im coming back, This is a Great mode, know, another mode with Titans, bot no AI, and thats it

People are still buying it. AND this will help. :)
dboyc310  +   372d ago
Lol thought that they never were going to do it because it wouldn't "fit" the game. A lot will change when Titanfall 2 comes out. I think they learned a lot from the first installment.

new IP. Gotta work the kinks out I guess.

'Lol thought that they never were going to do it because it wouldn't "fit" the game.'
They are talking about a new gamemode called Pilot Skirmish which will be an 8v8 gamemode. It doesn't have titans and grunts in it and it amkes sense to make it 8v8.
They didn't do higher than 6v6 because there would be too many titan on the map...that still stand here..normal game mode with titans are still 6v6.

"8v8 pilot-only combat."

about dam time.
chaosx  +   372d ago
Not really Titanfall with no titans…
Antnee534  +   372d ago
Titans are what made this game garbage.
paddy95  +   372d ago
Cool. It will be a bit like advanced warefare. This will keep me going until that come along laterin the year. Titanfall is ok, but it will get destroyed by the much more exiting COD in a few months.
GamingSinceThe80s  +   372d ago
This may be enough to get me to buy it again. Or maybe I will just get it used at GameStop and play it again for a week and then return it and get all my money back.lol
Xb1ps4  +   371d ago
Lmao you ppl and your buy sell buy and sell again. All to save a total of 2 dollars lol

Why don't you just get gamefly and call it a day..
AutoCad  +   372d ago
Time to get back into it,i see myself actually getting hooked again with 8v8 pilots only
yankolo  +   371d ago
How can people not like this game...and they keep playin cod same over the same over the same..lets see now what they say cuze 8v8 no ai and no titans its cod killer I think...still love the titans ok..
MuhammadJA  +   371d ago
Is this game worth it on PC? Are there enough people playing?
ATi_Elite  +   371d ago
The PC Titanfall community is solid, no exact numbers but I have heard it is solid.

it just seems to have a long term community of players while the console seems to have players come and go.

Only issue I have heard about is that you may have a team full of low level players against a team full of high level players.
DLConspiracy  +   371d ago
I have never given up on Titanfall and its still to this day my most played shooter. Yes, I played it so much I took several week or two long breaks from it. Yes, it has bots like its said it would from the beginning. No it doesn't affect me in the slightest. No, its not a bad game at all.

I still love Titanfall and it seems to be the best mechanics a first person shooter has ever gotten. Enough so that even COD Advanced Warfare is stealing a page or two from its code. I stand behind Titanfall now and will when it becomes super popular and possibly trendy to finally appreciate with Titanfall 2. Its a great game.

"Enough so that even cod is stealing a page or two from Titanfal"l Lmao! I believe it is the other way around buddy! Cod advanced warfare has been in development longer than Titanfall. Titanfall will be better the 2nd time around but right now it just isn't competitive! 8 vs 8 isn't gonna solve it either, not when people will probably just camp on top of buildings anyway.
DLConspiracy  +   371d ago
Yeah you are right they usually divulge all the details of every game so other developers can take that information. It may have been developed earlier although I am not sure thats 100% true. As Titanfall has had a working demo since E3 2013. Point being. I am not the only one who feels COD AV took a few signature Titanfall things.

Not knocking AV btw. Just saying people are pretty quick to put down Titanfall for a long time. Well before it was released. I wont explain why. Besides people whine too much about the bots but then go on to complain about the lack of single player. Which is pretty hypocritical as single player games have AI aka Bots.

8v8 pilot only? I can get behind that
TheCatsMeow  +   371d ago
This is incredible news. A small gameplay tweak that will make a big difference. I can't wait. More targets to kill.

Gears_President  +   371d ago
Yep, its time for me to return.
Lostbytes  +   371d ago
LOL adding a game mode that RESPAWN stated would NEVER happen! Have to laugh! The game came out in march so the game is just about 6 or so months old! Respawn has stated that they are stopping support and new content for it soon. I have seen better support for SP only titles. talking about SP, i personally think NO classic SP campaign was their biggest downfall. Think of all the people who passed on this game due to that alone. (I personally know that 15 or 20 of my friends did not buy it for this reason)
