    Nah, 1 is better. The approach to getting titans in 2 is basically broken by comparison and favours camping when near a full meter to avoid getting large amounts of progress wiped out, better players often get titans later due to the temporary progress mechanic. Also the map design is flat out worse across the board.

    It's still fantastic though.

    I was late to the party on 1 so although I had it and enjoyed it, I played it for 20-30 hours compared to the 160 hours I put into 2, so I'm very partisan but 2 is closest to my heart. It's my favourite FPS ever, include as many iD classics as you like in that.

    From one Duff to another, you are spot on ;)

    Oh Yeah!

    If you reverse those times, that is roughly the amount of time I have spent on the two games,probably more if I include the 360 version (which by the way, was an excellent conversion):

    I actually have on the consoles,
    Titanfall 360
    Titanfall XB1
    TF 2 XB1
    TF2 PS4

    I have certainly had more fun with it that any other FPS.Re the debate about 1 v 2 I think one area that any fan of the second would have to concede (even you revan) is the maps on 1 are far better and larger so better for Attrition.

    Is there any meaningful single player content in 1? I still have my 360, must be pretty cheap by now...

    Damn and blast you lot, I havenít got the time to put Into one game, let alone the glut of them Iíve got built up at moment but all this talk is making me go and get TF2 for PS4. I completely missed this series as I didnít think I had the gaming ability for wall jumping and the like

    It's really good and one of the best FPs campaigns of recent years, so you should get it. AND play it. It's not massively long.

    No, it is really all mp. There is a "campaign" but it's not in the standard sense. TF2 campaign is absolutely brilliant. The 360 version probably has about 150-200 active players on a weekend evening, Attrition is the only mode that is active, it is a great mode, so that is not a problem.

    Check out some YT gameplay :)

    Had about two or three hours on Mp Tonight, wow amazing. Still got it, was mvp about half the games. :).

    Alternator, shock grenade, grapple is so sweet.

    Best PvP game ever. Right back into this and now remember how perfect glitch is as a pilot. You can spend the whole round never touching the ground.

    Ronin ftw. Looking at all my stats the vast majority of my time has been scorch and Ronin. Both around the same time played and they have similar titan kills but ronin has 3x the pilot kills. :). Nearly all games are evenly split between bounty hunt and attrition with a bit of hard point.

    Been exclusively using archer launcher as well, which I hardly used when I used to play.

    Nearly all the maps are brilliant and they've patched in detailed stats of each map. Think my favourites are boom town, Eden, glitch, dry dock?, And the one with weird plants. Randomly on Eden and I think glitch I've got nearly 80% win rate which is madness. Then on homestead it's only 55%.

    Rambling over.

    What are you playing it on, let me have your psn/tag and I will join you. It would be good to be with a team mate who is so good...I'm far from that.

    Coolio. I'll add you on psn then and I'll increase your win rate ;)

    Although this isn't a game that makes you better playing with friends as I'm never anywhere near my friends. In battlefield and most other games playing with others makes things easier. In Titanfall I find it makes no difference.

    I always used to find that I forgot it was really a team game. I'd sometimes have a brilliant round and be surprised when a message popped up to say my team lost, or vice versa. It was just a playground for me to murder people at high speed, wins and losses didn't matter too much. Teamwork is over-rated!

    Team work is far less important than usual in this, all about skills. Obviously you help each other if possible but it's so high paced team work doesn't work as fluently.

    Hard point and CTF matters and lts titan team choice but the main two modes don't require as much.

    Just had the most amazing game. Joined about 1/3 of the way into a game and my team were getting hammered! Losing by lots and it was 5 titans Vs 1 I think when I loaded in. We turned it around and won by about 100 points. So much fun.

    It's too fast paced to really coordinate, especially with fandoms. For me the benefit is to take batteries and put them in any teammates titan. Not only gives them shields but builds up your titan meter by a pretty big boost as well so you get your own titan faster.

    Lent my copy to my brother but I'm gonna ask for it back after playing Apex for a bit. It's good, but it's no TF2

    Iím incredibly happy that this is attracting players new and old - if I looked back through this thread Iíd find numerous posts around the launch window where Iím pleading with people to try it!

    I never did delete it off my PS4 HDD, but I hadnít touched it for a few months.......feels excellent jumping back in AND jumping straight into game, no waiting for players to join!

    Hopefully this resurgence will lead to a TF3 announcement sooner rather than later.....

    Have you added me, I don't have any new friends. Just tell me your tag and I will add, even if you have added, so I know it's you.
    Revan this was weird years ago when you would never tell us you Xbox or PlayStation name, not forgetting you "unfriended me!!!" what is your boggle about your psn/tag :)

    Just played some Attrition on Xbox one for the first time in ages. It still hums so sweetly.

    What a beautiful game.

    I can't believe how anyone could prefer one. Amazing game but 2 improves it in nearly every area. One does a couple of things better but that's it. 2 is near perfection. Especially the maps that are more wall run friendly.

    I finished the campaign last night - a first class FPS. Just about got everything right, with some fantastic memorable levels - I particularly liked the time travel one :)
