Are You Still Playing Titanfall?

Are You Still Playing Titanfall?

Titanfall has been out for a little while now, and it’s settled into a normal rhythm for an online shooter. There are some new maps, some new modes, and a lot of people who have gotten very good at it. But the question remains: How many people who were playing in March are still playing now?

It can be hard to get a sense of these things from one narrow corner of the world, so I thought I’d put it to you.


And, since I’m also kinda curious:


If you’ve got any additional thoughts on how Titanfall‘s been for you lately, sound off below.

Comments

  • There should have been a 3rd poll for ‘Which system did you purchase it on’, otherwise the “If you are still playing” poll is completely meaningless.

    • And for the ‘Sony Kids’ like me who own a good gaming PC….who also never bought it.

    • Sony kids? LOL, i got beta access on PC, played it for a bit but got bored, i don’t own any Xbox products, only PC and PlayStation

    • Hm? Im a Sony kid but I have titan fall on my x1? No one cares about titanfall anymore just xbots still bragging about it being Xbox exclusive and funny enough it is not even Xbox exclusive lol.

    • Us Sony kids don’t care. We have an equally crappy game; Killzone Shadow Fail.
      I almost bought into the hype of Tittyfail. Luckily a mate talked me out of the XB1 purchase as I was going to the shops to buy it. It’s bad enough I have PS4 with no games. lol.

      • Yeah, i wouldnt say titanfall is as bad as killzone shadowfall, but it still isnt whatever everyone hyped it up to be. Neither was watchdogs and Destiny will probably be the same.

  • I bought it on PC at release and played for several hours over a week or two. No interest since then.
    I would have liked to get my money back to be honest.

    Oh well, there’s 30GB of audio/ language data I don’t have to carry…

  • I have a copy, it is installed and up to date… it has been there for months, and I still can’t bring myself to play it. :/

  • For those of you who said they play, when do you play?

    I re-downloaded it about a month ago after going months without internet and spent half an hour matchmaking to nothingness. I really feel like I’ve wasted my precious money.

  • Managed to get it for $40 off of Origin, tried it, haven’t touched it since.
    It’s just too unremarkable to hold my interest.

  • I try to play Titanfall semi-regularly …. however the queue times are stupid long.

    I love the game but I wish there was a way to play it without having to sit in a lobby for 30+ min.

    • you mean like custom servers, that people can run themselves, now that would be an idea

  • i had it, and would have been playing it recently, but when I was having trouble logging into my origin account the support guy decided to just delete it and give me a new one, and instead of giving me back my copy of titanfall he decided a demo was equally good.

  • Only just recently purchased an Xbox One. Played for the first time last night. Pretty fun, but I imagine like a lot of multiplayer games, I’ve missed a lot of the magic by not playing with friends from the get go. Friends who have now moved on to other games.

  • Reminded me again that I shouldn’t buy DLC maps ever. Don’t know why I keep buying season passes. They never force new maps, you get a crappy variety mode in the new map pack, and then you just keep playing the old maps.

  • Played it on PC when they were offering 48hrs free. Just didn’t seem that fun. Great concept though. Robots are kewl.

  • Only reason I play it is there are few other options for XBone at the moment. Come on MS, did you want early adopters or not?!

    In other news, I’m still waiting for that Plex app or any decent DLNA option.

  • I never bought it. I played it during the pre-release demo (That was not a beta!) and that was enough for me. I was thinking of buying it but the lack of offline single player killed it.

    Besides which; that new CoD is doing that anyway!

  • I jumped back in recently. It’s still a lot of fun though some of the higher end players are bastards to play against, so I don’t know if I want to bother paying for the DLC.

  • Still play it when I get a hunger for some FPS action, still fun. But I feel that I am in the minority reading others comments, anyone would think that it was the worst game of the year,

  • I’ve put 200hours into Titanfall, but have barely touched it in a month because Aussies only play Attrition (TDM) I’ve played Marked for death once (loved it) and haven’t gotten a CTF/HP/Variety game in close to 8 weeks.
    Also the ESP/Aimbot use is just horrific, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

  • I have it on PC and still love it, but I only occasionally play it now. I’m looking to play it more since Respawn made matchmaking less horrid.

  • PC.

    I got it, at first there were some issues. Both the game running shit and with Optus cable.

    Then I played a very little. Nothing grabbed me.

    Some time later I went back to play, and didn’t last long. It wasn’t bad. However I strongly got the feeling everyone playing were those that stuck with it and the disparity between what they had unlocked and what I had made it not fun.

  • Played about 90 hours I think. Stopped playing well before the dlc came out. I keep meaning to got back, but wouldn’t pay for the dlc maps and then my brain would feel like im missing something or stopping the people im playing with from playing the newer maps. Meh. I feel like my $74 from Target should have got me the full game and the season pass, or I could buy just the game for $40-$50.

  • I really enjoy this game, have easily put 100+ hours into it. And would still be playing often if I hadn’t become completely absorbed in Divinity: Original Sin!

    The game itself is great, fast-paced and just plain fun. But Respawn’s awful matchmaking really killed it in my opinion. The way teams got split up often ended in unfair advantages and very one-sided matches. The amount of people I saw whinging about match-making was crazy.

    Unfortunately the PC community seems to have mostly abandoned it. Good luck getting a game other than Attrition on Australian servers now.

    Shame, the game itself was great but the framework around it sort of sucked. Guess we’ll just have to wait for the inevitable Titanfall 2!

  • There shouldve been an option to vote for if you got dlc. Seems like right after dlc the number of players just dropped.

  • I’m not usually into multiplayer shooters ala COD; I’m no good at them and never been compelled to get good at them. I got TF with the Xbone bundle. I really enjoyed playing it with a few friends and thought it was a good, well balanced and fun game. But I havent played it in months. I don’t feel like playing with randoms and most of my friends arent actively playing so its an effort to get people together to jump on.

    Also noticed that lobbies seem to take forever to matchmake. Not sure if thats the new thing to try and balance better. I always saw it as something you could jump on, play a few rounds when you had nothing to do and jump off. But when the matchmaking takes 15 minutes plus its just no longer something you can do that with.

  • We play every Monday, lota fun with friends. 😀 this will prob last till halo comes out 😀

  • I am not the person who normally plays FPS. I liked Team Fortress 2 (but never got really hooked) and Borderlands, but only single player.

    BUT. I got titanfall and have been hooked since day one. Havent even looked at another game.

    It was pretty awful for a while with the wait times, but since the patch about a fortnight ago where they just change players within team its like it was at the start.

    Surprisingly there seem to be a lot of new gen players going around recently. Maybe because its a bit cheaper.

    Pros:

    – Titans and jumps packs make it more interesting that a normal FPS.
    – Good balance between weapons, titans vs pilots, grunts that noobs can pick off
    – Regenning forces you to play with different weapons.

    Cons:

    – Getting a little stale in regards to number of maps
    – Until about two weeks ago there wasnt many people on Aus servers. Being switched to Asia. Better now
    – Attrition is dominant. I wouldnt mind the other games, but they arent as fun as attrition.
    – Gen challenges are tough. So much grinding.

    I would recommend people to jump back in it. Think it has improved recently. If there are too many good people, just go grunt hunting. My record it 70 in a round.

  • I have a small group of mates who I play TF with on every second friday (or there abouts) and it’s still fun but yeah agree, I think it’s a bit boring now if I’m not with people I know.

  • I’m still playing. Getting into a game of Attrition is pretty painless, but sadly all the other modes are dead. Shame, really. I like Last Titan Standing a lot.

  • Eh, I jump on for a couple of rounds every few weeks. It’s not a game where you play for hours on end, pretty much just end up playing a match or two.

  • And this was the danger with having the major exclusive for the Xbone as a multiplayer only game. After a handful of months at best, people have moved onto the next game and forgotten all about it.

    • I hope that when Titanfall 2 comes out, they have PS4 fans play against Xbox fans.

  • played for free for 48 hours thought the game was ok but the wait time in lobby was ridiculous never experienced anything like it the game need servers that you can join instead of controlling the matches

  • Bought it on PC. I love it. I try to play it all the time. It just takes so damn long to get a game.

    If they actually caved to demand and included a server list instead of forcing us onto matchmaking, I think the game would see a resurgence over night.

  • Was playing up till last week. Now me and my friends have moved on to 7 Days to die. I’ve never played Minecraft so 7 Days to Die has us absolutely addicted. I can’t remember the last time I’ve had this much fun in a co-op game.
