Yeah, just about to post this.
Free to play the FULL game all weekend, but you have to download it..
Only a 50gig download to try the game!
I wanted to try it out this weekend but I'm not down for a 50g download.
It's actually 20gb download which unpacks to 50gb of disk space..
Pulling it down now..been curious about this game and was at one stage on my buy list but you know it's EA so I dropped off but sod it. This way I get to check it out and if it's crap I've saved $80
EA should do this for all the future BF games but thats unlikely seeing how shit they have been when released.
Dunno about the 20Gb download...I'm at 31.14Gb and it's still coming down
Did I miss the free weekend?
EDIT: Ah it seems it's just free in general for 48 hours from when you decide to play it... kind of a 'free to play timed demo' type thing.
The figure that origin reports is incorrect, or correct if you take into consideration data compression.. it's a 20gb compressed download, but origin reports it as 50gb when uncompressed..
My Logitech G9x is fucked. Tried playing this last night with my old yum-cha mouse and I played like shiiiiiiiiiiit. No weight to the damn thing and it's all gross and sticky where the rubberised coating has picked up grime and shit.
another titanfall patch?
Looks pretty beefy too!
Some good inclusions like the the chassis unlocks for those that missed the campaign and nice to see they're still committed however I feel it's too little too late for the PC community. I can play on the weekend nicely but it's pretty much attrition and only attrition which annoys me. I feel if the game was dropped to $40 and put on Steam it would prolly get a nice population injection and a more solid community but that will never ever happen sadly.
Pretty harsh nerf on the carbine, 24 rounds is fuck all.
Other than that sounds good to me, I'll miss my crazy blast satchels though.
Also would have liked to see a range nerf on the melee kick, or keep the current range and make it a 2 hit kill on full health targets.
The R97 is my favourite weapon, and they're buffing it? Fuck yeah!
RIP OP satchels though
getting that bug where it always thinks it needs to update, even though it already has.
Its a deserved buff, I like it too but the CAR was pretty much clearly superior.
the best change is to satchels, they were just ridiculous.
deserved nerf to shotty (even though i'll miss it)
Most of the changes make a lot of sense imho.
pity the matchmaking still sucks
Shotty is still awesome luckily, so good to know they didn't break things like Battlefield used to. Yes Matchmaking is still poor, but worst of all is the massive increase in ping. Everyone's been complaining about it and it's pretty apparent a lot of the time with a lot of bullshit encounters happening...
Haven't played since the few weeks after it came out, jumped back on today to see if they had sorted out the matchmaking stuff. Started a timer to see how long it would take...
...up to 37 minutes now and nothing has happened.
Might close it down again and wait a couple more months. :-(
The match making is horrendously bad... I try and let it connect to a game and if it doesn't within a minute i quit out to the main menu (the titanfall screen) and try to connect all over again.. I'm usually within a game in 2-3 mins with this method..
Otherwise if you just sit there waiting for it to find a game, it doesn't..
hehe. I came to this thread to see if anyone is even still playing it!
Been waiting for 10 mins for a match to come up.
Matchmaking just sucks balls. I really hate the trend. Give us private servers and a server browser, ffs. (This is aimed at ALL MM games, not just titanfall.)
