    Considering they mention rotation half a dozen times in the article and talk about reworking the ones out of rotation yes, I read that they're doing a map pool.

    Well I like your interpretation, but I'm not going to expect it to be realised. Maybe kanal will come back in the relatively near future...

    I mean, they're just copying CSGO et al from the looks of things and they have called it directly a map rotation. I don't see any reason to be concerned and I certainly wouldn't take too much notice of the horde of reactionary babies over on reddit/whatever.

    The one bit that does confuse me is the 'We are quickly approaching the limit of our data sizes' bit in the blog which will force them to take maps out of custom games. Is that some console bullshit fucking things up for them or something, or are they just on a really shitty internet plan?

    Woah, these patch notes highlight so many good changes.

    I'll miss the acog on Jager and Bandit (if I ever get around to play this again).

    Yeah, it does feel like everyone ripping on Operation Health missed the memo that most of it was going to land at the end of the season, not the beginning. I think I counted 22 fixes on Echo alone there.

    So many changes! Looks great to me. Will change up the game for sure, for example, taking away the red haze for defenders going outside, and ACOGs for fast defenders (you pretty much had to get rid of ACOGs with no red haze).

    Will have to experience the smaller ranked playlists - definitely miss some of my favourites.

    Looks like they are going to include the new map in the ranked playlist after all. Good choice. Update drops on the 5th.

    Looks like the time is now to jump into this, on sale this week on PSN.

    Is it worth getting the Year 2 season pass? It expires in Feb 2018, will content from this year get folded into Year 3, or you'd still have to get the Yr2 pass to unlock them anyway?

    Everything is worth it in the game. Best FPS this gen by far.

    I think you meant to post that in the Titanfall 2 thread. :D

    Seems like the pass is just for instant unlock of Year 2 Operators, and you can get them anyway just with R6 Credits(?). No pass then! Looking forward to getting whupped and verbally abused.

    Is it much of a grind to unlock stuff or fairly quick?

    It's a grind to unlock operators from the year passes for sure, but not so bad for the ones in the base game.

    Played both. While titanfall 2 is great, itís nothing compared to the slow and intense multiplayer in rainbow.

    Still very healthy on PC at least. I only play casual mode with friends but queue wait times are rarely over 30-40 seconds.

    I've jumped back into playing this with both feet on PC. It's great. New operators are fun, new maps are cool, but the gameplay remains solid. I stopped before the DLC characters came out after launch, so now I'm rediscovering with nearly twice as my operators available.

    Yeah, same for the X. I think it is dynamic resolution though, but it doesnt go up very high. (On X i think you donít need a patch for this to improve?)

    Best game ever, tho...

    That's not my experience at all, to be honest*. But then it has just been school holidays, which are always shit for online games.


    * on PC anyway

    That was very much my experience when I played it on PS4 for a year or so.

    Not my experience in Xbox. Sure you get the odd shit team m8s, but I canít imagine people trying to votekick in Ranked play.

    So is it a thing now that you make one mistake and someone on your team vote kicks you? I've just come back to this and although it did happen occasionally I've had votes against me almost every day. You may laugh, I'm not the best but I'm not teamkilling or killing the hostage, normally 1v1 situations that I suck at, ooh look I'm getting vote kicked. Quite funny as I was the player with most kills/points a few of those times.

    Apostle git gud etc.

    @solidsneek happy to explain the ins and out in game if we are online at same time. It is my main game (although been doing a lot of PUBG, Wildlands and TF2 lately). Good to hear you are having fun, there is quite a steep learning curve, at least if you are up against high ranks. Youíll get shot from places you donít expect quite a lot! Watch defenders coming out to attack your spawn. And donít Fuze the hostage :p

    @Technoishmatt Yeah that sounds good currently level 6 but been told a few times I don't play like a beginner but although this is different shooters are my core platform. Would love to find a team and regular play when I finally get to play ranked I will hopefully be at a reasonable level.

    My record after a couple of hours in https://ibb.co/jhgYMS

    My stats there! I think I'm just shy of rank 180. Based your 13 games in 2.5 hours, that would suggest I have done 450 hours. Ranked games can be much longer though (it is first to 4 instead of 3, and if other team has more than 2, you need 5), so that would be the absolute bottom end. Although they did shorten round times a couple season's back.

    I can't manage time commitments any more. Also, I am currently over in US, so wrong timezone, but I have good experiences of matching up with people in Ranked (mics are common) and playing for long sessions / adding to friends lists for plays on other days.
