    Then Frontier Defense mode is right up your alley. It's very forgiving of shitty net. You can co-op with 3 other people.

    Good match last night G-Phresh, when I first saw you I'd dropped into that final round on Rise. Dunno who left your group, but I was busy playing damage control from the get go. Black Water Canal was a great map for Scorch. I'm busy trying to level up the Ion, it's not really my Titan of choice.

    After that match I just left matchmaking to do it's thing, and ended up in the same group as last match, without you, We ended up doing... Regular Wargames. As soon as all my Titans are fully aegis'ed up, I'm switching to Hard and above.

    Yeah was a good game.
    All the games i played where on easy though, so wasnt much of a challenge.
    Scorch is epic fun. Just got the third upgrade for it, which is awesome.

    Gonna try and get some more games in this weekend.

    Alright all reinstalled. Played about 15 minutes and had some mad stutter going on in multiplayer. Running on a Fury so it shouldn't have any issues

    Had a solid session on the American servers this morning. Only takes about 10 seconds to get a game there!

    I tend to play the aussie servers during the evening, and US Servers other times.

    I want to support the Aussie presence as much as possible.

    Yeah, same. Aussie prime time, I stick to Sydney servers, regardless of queue times. I also talk to the players, and see a lot of familiar names from time to time. Trying to keep the community alive is important imo.

    Played my first frontier defence today, great fun! The new maps looks brilliant too, such a great looking game.

    Have they tweaked FD payouts? I seem to be getting like 1k extra credits between matches than I'm used to. The sheer amount of arc traps out gets staggering.

    Dont think so.
    However, if you play a harder mode you get more enemies (hence more cash).
    Also, some maps have longer waves. The Farm map tends to have alot more enemies than most other maps.

    Anyone know what's going on with Steam? I'm seeing heaps of games recently that I didn't expect to be available on their platform. Anyway, REVIVAL TIME!

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/1237970/Titanfall_2/

    67% off, currently @ $13.18AUD

    I'd still pay 4x the current amount for SP alone. I think the player base might be up now for MP, will test this weekend perhaps. Since it's become available for Steam.

    For those still on the fence, highly recommended, even if it's a 2016 release. In fact, I'll go install it shortly :leet:

    EA finally backed down on Origin exclusivity...first with Fallen Order, and now most of the catalogue.

    I missed this story, which is no biggie for me as I have been focusing my time and efforts on other things (but not 100% out of gaming in general because I DO NEED my down time too@). From a brief search, this appeared to have started about six months ago. And just like Ubisoft games, these EA games will still require the Origin launcher.

    I wonder taking into consideration the current boosted player count online due to this, if the game would have fared differently if it was made to be available in Steam from the get go.

    Just happy for those 12k+ people, it's such a great game!
