I'm about 60/40 towards Titan. It's a lot faster paced like the good ol' days of UT2K4.

I agree !!!

It plays faster, much faster, more action than BF2 which I really like.

How can we convince our old ONS Buddies to give this game a fair chance ??

Any thoughts ??

The old ONS buddies are a stubborn bunch (yes you know who you are :D ) I think it's just "appeal" that does it. I can play pretty much any FPS that's why i moved from UT2K4 to BF2, even though i knew it was going to be a different ball game and a lot slower.

All i can say is DEMO.

That should work a treat. It's one of the few intro videos i've seen that do the game justice, and show the game exactly how it is.

i put 50/50 but lean more towards conquest because well it takes more thinking to play it. Titan is more of a either sit on titan to get kills or just pod from one place to another getting silos. I think if they get rid of the titan guns and/or the titan pods it would make the game much different and place more strategy into the game

I enjoy Titan more but I went 50/50 as I go in the first server with a free spot, so either Cains conquest or Cains Titan!

I prefer Conquest. To me it's more head-on than Titan and I can actually play it at a great rate.

I definatly prefer Titan you get more points and it is much faster paced, however the art of sniping has disappered :cry: and without my cobra i feel lonely.

the problem with titan is points, You get them way to fast with defending/attacking. I don't think there should be team work score for defending or attacking the titans.

No it hasn't. You just have to pick the time and place. When the other team is on high buildings. For example Silo 4 on Minsk, :D
Or defending the titan. Stand just inside corridor 3 or 4 and take out the people in the cargo bay.

Hey guys, I only played the demo, but I enjoyed the titan demo more so than the conquest....i liked the fact that you can board the enemy titan and walk around inside, thats really neat...

My wife said I can get 2142 for Christmas!!! YAY! :2thumbs: :2thumbs:

I'd say I'm about 60/40 leaning towards Titan, as well. Titan is usually pretty enjoyable because of the fast-pace. However, when you've got an entire squad spamming nades down a corridor or 5 sentry guns lined up...it gets pretty annoying.

Most of the time, Titan is great. I find myself trying to log into the Titan server before the Conquest server.

pfft, go back in time, cuz the cobra is OBSOLETE! gunships dominate now..( since theyre like what? the only "attack" air vehicle?)

sorry but the cobra was so much better of a setup. The attack flier now sucks balls(and not in the good way).

My squads yesterday won every round, without boarding the Titan.

You can kick the other team's butt by controlling the missle silos and pounding the other Titan with missles.

Yeah this is what you have to do now people have figured out the consta grenade fest in the corridors.......a good way to depend the titan!

I had a CLR squad yesterday and we tried to go defense. Then we noticed that despite numerous chat messages to the team that we had the titan defense and they should go attack or get silos, realized nobody was doing anything else. :P

Those kind of games are frustrating, when you know you have the only squad that can do anything, and you finally have to pull them off to do other things. People need to realize how important silos are, or that they can in fact like, attack, the other titan.

At one point yesterday I switched from D to attack, and I single-handedly destroyed two consoles in less than a minute after boarding their titan. Kind of irritating when you have times like that, and you team could have easily won but nobody was bothering to attack anything. They want the easy points that come with nade spamming on defense, and just hanging out near the cargo hold on D in general.

-Rand

P.S. The nade spamming is definitely getting worse. I think the expansion should include a couple of things we have available TODAY. I'm thinking fiber optic cameras, and those guns that can shoot around corners while keeping you safe. :2thumbs:

Yeah, I've gotten to the point that half the time I just spend the entire round taking/defending silos. Last night I spent about half a round defending a single silo. People forget that the silos are still important after the titans' shields are down.
Also, I hate attacking the enemy titan now. Seems like its just:
a. pod over to titan
b. run inside titan
c. get killed
d. goto a

o c'mon! gunship has speed over the cobra, plus do some things that the cobra could possibly do.
and give the gunship some slack! unlike the gunship, the cobra was created NOT by game designers, but from real people who tested and improved it after YEARS of experimenting.

I'm 50/50. Titan is usually faster paced but it occasionally gets repetitive. It is more dependent on the quality of your team and the opponent's team.

Conquest is more map dependent, though. I LOVE some of the Conquest maps, but I also hate some of them. And some of them are great when the battle is goin your way, and horrible when the enemy rolls your uncap right at the start. Belgrade and Fall of Berlin both have this problem. But once you break out, they are a blast.

I'm about 80/20 Conquest/Titan in terms of enjoyment. I REALLY liked the Titan mode back when the Demo was released, but since all of the unlocks have come into play and people have learned all the exploits, I can hardly stand it anymore. I do have some good Titan games here and there, but then someone exploits the Titan (Core destroyed before shields down) and the fun level just plummets. Or the increadible amount of APM spam that usually goes on, or the constant grenade spamming.....etc.

IMO, with all the people generally camping the Titans, "Titan mode" becomes Conquest with giant floating bases. Which is why I just skip the camping part and go straight to Conquest mode most of the time.

And about the Gunship....yes, the missles are a little weaker, but they do heat-seek a little now (against air targets) and the Active Shielding is an upgrade from the flair system. If you flew a cobra in BF2142, the AA+EMP missles would have you eating dirt within seconds of takeoff. Now the TVGM was a lot better on it then the current version, but the number and the range of the current AA turrets makes almost any air power inert.
