Its a free-to-play battle royale that, interestingly, wont let you use the Titan mech suits that make Titanfall so iconic.

So it doesn't have the one thing that could possibly make this worth playing, got it.

Except Titanfalls gameplay outside of Titans is actually really fun

I have played the training while I wait for it to finish downloading the rest of the game

Basically took Overwatch style hero shooter and made it a battle royale

I like that you can use the R1 button to ping anything from locations, to enemies to weapons and ammo for your team mates

So they took out the two best parts of Titanfall and turned the rest into a battle royale?

...That's actually exactly what I'd expect EA to do.

Even without the wall running and stuff, it looks pretty decent. Being free to play'd help sell it to my friends too. Annoyed I won't be able to play it for at least a few weeks. Hopefully there's still a decent playerbase when I can.

Played a few games and it IS pretty decent but it's still very close to other battle royale games. I feel like there's more firefights which is cool. But most of the differences to other BRs are pretty subtle.

i've only played a bit of fortnite and watched a decent amount of pubg, but i dunno i think the ability to respawn your dead teammates sounds like a pretty significant difference!

the hero abilities also seem to have a huge impact. wallhacking, invisibility, decoys, team healing, etc. and all the supers/ults along with forced squads demand more synergizing and counterplay.

also apparently you can climb up most walls by holding the jump button??? i need to try that later.

oh and uh yeah the game actually feels good to control for an arcade shooter with guns that have weight and power to them unlike fortnite!

EDIT: ALSO THE PING SYSTEM IS SUPER GOOD WHETHER I'M PLAYING WITH FRIENDS OR RANDOS

Caught a couple W's, got 2nd in my last match, in a really fun fashion.

The circle closed on long corridor with a large opening at one end, 3 squads left (2 others).

My squad came into the circle through the corridor, with another squad at the far end, they were facing away from us into the large area, and we engaged them.

They start chucking all their throwables. Grenades, fire bombs, throwing stars, it's chaos.

One of my homies dies, and a grenade finishes him off. I pop my ult (I was the tracker), so I can see all the enemies, and I go berserk, unloading and killing 2, and when my ult runs out I fall back.

My teammate goes after their 3rd, who is now trying to revive his teammates.

I recover my friend's respawn tag. There's a respawn point OUTSIDE of the circle, but I don't know if I could survive, and I also don't even know if it'd work after being overtaken by the circle.

As this happens, my teammate tells me the other team is shooting him. He falls back into the corridor.

We fall back into the corridor together.

We're at the end of the corridor, with the circle behind us, nowhere to go, and the team pushes.

Grenades, firebombs, ILLUSIONS from one of their characters abilities. They block us in with firebombs so we couldn't push back even if we wanted to.

My teammate kills one and goes down.

I kill one.

I get shot in the back by the illusion guy, who had ulted and stealthed around behind me.

Shit was so intense.

Okay, so 3 wins so far. The first I died in the final fights and it felt OK but I wasn't part of the final 2 squads. I think that happens a decent amount from what I've seen - lots of squads are down to 1-2 people.

Second win, we had someone try to go rogue and died and quit right away, and me and my other teammates just kept rotating into the circle and picking people off. We had good luck with the final circle and I 1v1'd the last kill, so that felt pretty good to just 2 v everyone.

Third win I was with two guys that just massacred everything in sight. I saved them in the first fight and then I used smoke to help revive them from being pinched by two squads, and then died and that was it for me and I just spectated and kept quiet until "we" won.

I really don't have a great feel for all of the weapons. Some of the AR/SMGs have a lot of kick and I'm just not really well honed in on what each weapon is gonna feel like. I have a decent feel for the map and the flow of action on the larger scale. Sometimes I feel like battles move a bit quickly while they are happening and I'm not great at positioning when a battle goes down. But I need to get an idea as to what weapons work for me and which ones don't so I can loot up better.

I feel like people take a lot of shots so snipers haven't been great for me. I feel like all I'm doing is ticking people off and I've only have a little success with the G7 once things get to mid-range. Maybe I don't have a great sniper strategy though.

I've probably played 30 game or so. I'd say a third of them are somewhat comically doomed because 1-2 of the squad just kinda take off and don't think about teamwork at all. The next third, I just lose to better players and that's OK. I mean it can suck to loot up for a few minutes and then immediately lose the first real fight but oh well. And I guess the other third of the games I've played, my squad makes a decent run.

I've never played PUBG, Blackout and certainly not Fortnight. I did play H1Z1 a little bit. I tend to stay away from BR games because they suck your free time away and I don't have much of that, and I also don't like vanishing for hours at a time and I can't pause the game. So I like Legends, I think people take a few too many bullets to take down, and I dunno if I want to invest a ton more time or just keep playing Overwatch.

I either die within the first two minutes or go 10+ before seeing anybody until the ring is small and then my group being wiped out. Shield guy would be nearer if his shield didnt also stop your own bullets, but then I guess he might be OP if you could just stay inside his shield and shoot enemies safely. I am lv6 I think and have killed 5 people somehow. Kinda wish you could at least start with a pistol in these things

I've seen people say this is like Overwatch but I don't really feel that at all. The characters have a few special abilities but from what I've seen they feel kinda gimmicky and clunky to use, they don't feel like a natural extension of the character. Blinking as Tracer or shielding as Rein or Winston feels as natural as pressing spacebar to jump, but using the abilities in this game feel weird. Wraith's Q has a bad delay and then the way the world changes gives a bit of disorientation from what's happening around you. Doesn't seem great to use in the middle of combat. The robots grappling hook seems weird, you kinda crash into the wall you hook to and then climb over? Does not feel smooth.

Basically using an ability feels like I'm stopping whatever normal gameplay is happening to do this weird thing and then a few moments later I'll resume actually playing the game. Does not feel like Overwatch at all.

I guess because characters have abilities that makes it close enough to some people but it misses the mark on that front.

It works much better when you realize the way you are facing keeps momentum while grappling. Come at the wall you want to grapple slightly from the side and then look kinda parallel once hooked and you will whip over the wall much more smoothly than just firing the grapple straight on.

Quick warning just in case anybody else messes up like I did. If you use shield guy and are standing in his shield bubble dont use your ultimate air strike thing because he cant throw it through the shield. I did this on like my first match with him not knowing how his abilities worked and basically nuked my own team oops

I played for like 2 hours and half my matches started my team with only 2 people instead of a full team of 3 too. Not sure why that happened so often, but oh well. People also sometimes leave as soon as they die even though you can revive people in this one. Ive mostly been using the shield guy since I basically main tank/healer in OW. Hes not really that tanky or anything though. Just from a small play experience I want to say healer girl is the best because she can heal your allies, revive them faster than others and her ultimate drops down supplies. Just seems really useful all around.

drop faster and drop where the guns are

there's no guarantee each loot area will have a gun so it's just a matter of luck, speed and map knowledge

artillery and airbase are pretty solid places to drop that are dense enough to support multiple groups dropping but spaced out enough that you have a little time to scavenge if there's competition

Yeah, sometimes the RNG really fucks you.

I've had multiple games where my squad has landed first / been the only people to land there, and then we don't find any guns besides a mozambique or two before another team strolls through and they all have guns.

I hit 10 wins today. I've won one with 5 of the starting 6, all but my Pathfinder, who my friend plays 90% of the time.

A third of my matches have ended with me having to punch people just because I found no weapons of any kind. At least those matches end fast

With punches doing 30 damage, even to their back, and there being a massive recoil/pause after you connect, I've found the only time a punch is ever possibly worth it is if they're already punching you, and even then you're likely to get 3rd partied.

Although one time, I landed on the supply ship and didn't manage to get the gun me and another dude landed on, and when I punched him he went flying off the side of the ship, which felt badass.

This is the first battle royale game I've ever been interested in trying out. Well, and that Paladins one, but it seems like that's an add-on for a game I've never played, so that's getting the nix.

Is the general consensus this is fun, especially if you didn't care about any battle royale games before it?

I feel like all the teams I run into that win have auto assault rifles or something while I only ever seem to find pistols and shotguns. I guess Ive been pretty unlucky weapon wise

XFD this latest one I killed 2 people with punches. One rushed me and I just punched him to death somehow and the other I got the jump on when he was fighting my ally

For the record after I punched him to death it took another 5-8 punches just to actually kill him since he had a high level shield. Felt kinda bad just punching him to death slowly >_>
