Thread Details

I wanted to get this started so we can hopefully get more SD guys thinking about and getting interested in the upcoming SD Titanfall tournament on XB1.

Titanfall is set to be released on 3/11/2014 (let's hope there are no delays!). A speculative tournament start date is April 2014. If you're interested in participating please add your SD username and GT to the wiki.

All previous tournaments have been played on COD (IIRC, we've had 4 SD GL COD tourny's). This will obviously be the first Titanfall tournament the SD GL has had. ALL skill levels are welcome as team balancing is attempted (with varying levels of success). In previous tournaments we've had noobs, average players and experts all sign up and generally have a lot of fun, while getting to know their fellow SD guys a bit better.

At this time, we don't have a ton of participants and I think it's because not everyone has made the jump to XB1 yet. In past tournaments we've had around 30 participants give or take a few. Hopefully as we get closer to release date we'll have more players sign up. So if you're interested, make sure you provide your info in the wiki below. And if we have a good deal of participants, look out for a PM from me as I always collect all participant's email addresses for match scheduling purposes and other miscellaneous tournament related communication. I already have email addresses from all previous SD GL tourny participants and they can all attest that I am not some spammer.

Reached Gen 10 over the weekend. It took me 58 wins (mostly FD) to complete the 50x MVP challenge. Time to wrap up a few other challenges before I hang this game up for good and move on to something else. I think GTAV PC comes out in a few weeks...

Can you just get a Wave MVP for that challenge? That'd be pretty sweet.

I played Titanfall for the first time in MONTHS this weekend and had a lot of fun with it. I love the Frontier Defense type of games, so happy they have added that, and it made the Railgun Challenge a piece of cake since you are facing 5-10 Titans every 3-5 minutes!

I always liked the daily challenges in Reach too, so it was neat seeing them in this game also. I just wish games had more staying power...now that I've jumped back into this I regret leaving as there are a lot of really neat new features, but I can't keep myself to stick to something to just run it into the ground, laugh out loud

Nah the single wave MVP's do not count towards the challenge. I also tried playing FD solo to win it but I guess you HAVE to have another player in the game to win the MVP. FD is what I mainly play.
The dailies are nice as well. It's the first thing I check every day I play. They're great except when they add some crap challenge like win 3 matches of Pilot Hunter.... no one plays PH, the lobby is 100% dead. And adding this challenge will not restore life to it but instead only succeeding in me promptly deleting said challenge. DELETE THE LOBBY!
Now things are dwindling down, they do need to remove a few of the lobbies to condense the player count. I look forward to Titanfall 2.

LOL When I late joined this match we were down 86 to 128. (Hence the low minion kills)

The ranking system is on for some of us. It resets each month. I just ranked up to Tier 1 Platinum. The leader on the other team is a Tier 5 Diamond, the highest of rank possible. You have to keep up playing MP or your rank will diminish by losing a battlemark every other day.

Bronze
Silver
Gold
Platinum
Diamond

I finally got back on last weekend and played a bunch with ChoclateThundr and then did a ton of Frontier Defense on my own on Sunday. Loved it! Downloaded all the map packs since I previously bought the season pass. Forgot how much I absolutely love this game!

Thanks for the reminders about the challenges. I'll have to remember to start checking those now. I don't know that I'm going to worry about hitting Regen 10 on this. I had already gotten to 7 on my 360...so I've done my time on the pond. But definitely will play it in between Destiny and Far Cry 4 now.

Nice. Check out the Black Market - Daily Deals as well. Lot's of goodies there also like cheap Burn Cards or BC Packs. As I tend to gain more than I spend, I sell off all the ones I know I wont use and just use the really kick ass ones like Ghost Squad or the Adrenaline Transfusion.

Turn on your rank chip instead and let that represent your skill instead of the stupid regen challenges (that I made myself complete lol)

What is the rank chip?

I did check out the Black Market as I sell off cards I don't want either. When I was playing Frontier Defense the first 2 times they had the Endless Arc Mines available, so I bought that and wiped out all kinds of attackers laying those puppies down all over the place!

The rank chip is where you join a separate class of ranking based on MP scores only. So everything other than FD, your rank chip will be displayed instead of your regen class.

You might need to reach a certain regen class before it becomes active though. I think it got turned on for me after a good while at Gen3 - Level 50. But that was also right after the rank system was deployed where I think they were selective in who could join.

On the main menu after you connect to a server, look towards the bottom where Challenges is listed, it should be there. If not, GEN UP! laugh out loud

Arc mines are effing awesome in FD once you know where the grunts and spectres run through. Also great in CTF where ya lay it right on the base of the flag. Boom dead.

Gotcha. I'll keep an eye out for it as I rank up again.

I use the infinite arc mines on Hardpoint all the time! Best way to close off choke points and alternate entrances to the hardpoint areas so you can cover the whole thing on your own. Love hearing that crackling arcing sound, followed by and explosion, followed by "BuckUUp killed so-n-so"! hehe

When TF first came out, all I played was Hardpoint. At the time I seemed to do much better in that mode (where you had a location to go to and overtake/defend... an objective) where as Attrition you are just kind of roaming around the map free killing and I think that threw me off. Now it seems to be what I am best at. Go figure... I also use particular loadouts between Hardpoint (Satchels) & Attrition (Arc Grenades) so that helps. CTF is too back & forth and annoying to me so I can only stand that mode in small amounts.
