After all the drama of a hacker rendering Titanfall unplayable and poking into keeping prominent Titanfall 2 streamers from playing, itís weird that a hacker promotes this message in Apex.

TF1 is actually playable on PC today for the first time in a while. The lack of slide hopping and a grappling hook is loving me up but it's cool to see some of these maps again.

I've been in a number of matches lately where everyone forms a TRUCE the minute a hacker is identified.

I mean it obviously sucks that this issue is getting worse and worse, but it can bring out the best in folks - so I guess that's a win.

The faces he makes while posting are inexcusable! When he writes a post his face is like a troll double checking bones to see if there's any meat left! When I post I look like a peacock softly kissing a rose! Didn't his parents provide him with a posting mirror to practice forums faces growing up?


Yesterday was the first day I've seen any problems in multiplayer after over 70 hours of play time. Ping jump to 2000 ping as everyone left the dropship to start a round.

What a bummer that a game this good has weirdos spending their actual human free time preventing people from enjoying it

so unless this is some kind of inside viral marketing experiment it looks as if people from the titanfall community are engaging in DDoS wars with people from the apex community, both games are being hacked a lot lately

Titanfall 3 being released between Battlefield 2042 and the new CoD. Now that would be the biggest facepalm ever.

Just release Titanfall 3 either before Christmas or in March when a lot of people are burned already from the other games.

If the only way we got a TF3 is another doomed release, I don't give a gently caress. It almost feels like a Valve situation where selling Half-Life Alyx means nothing against their other revenue streams, if TF3 had a solid playerbase and frequent updates, I'm there. Give it to me, straight to the vein.

After seeing the numbers of TF2 when they did the last steam sale I feel like they would at least break even. And the OG fanbase is pretty hardcore so I feel like it would be worth it because we would buy pretty much anything Titanfall related at this point.

To be honest, I thought I'd feel the same way about arenas - but it's actually great.

Really nice to come home after work and play a few matches where I know I'll get my $$ worth out of some solid playtime.

Ah poo poo, this is happening to me too on Playstation. All I want to do is some frontier defense.

I haven't experienced any issues playing Frontier Defence, but yikes what a dumb hacktivism (or trolling) campaign this all seems to be.

Edit: Okay, finally experienced issues! Not quite sure how it works. If I'm alone (a rarity, but when players fall off), I can play just fine. Then some player joins and it'll kill the round. I guess there are bad actors connecting and doing it that way (yay matchmaking). If I'm right, people can just form squads on Discord and play as a party of 4 in Frontier Defence without issues.

Edit 2: I wasn't able to try it anyway, but it looks like the moment a friend enters even a private match with you, the problem would recur. Neat, but I guess it just says that server-side, things be effed. At least as of this second edit, apparently the servers are back up.

I periodically play some Apex and then just get bummed out that it feels a lot like Titanfall but with a massively gimped movement system. And the movement system is where a large chunk of my fun came from. :smith:

There's definitely not full on wall running but there's a lot more things than are readily apparent. I just hate how technical most of it is to pull off, necessitating weird binds on PC.

Ironic that one of the guys quoted heavily here, p0358, was actually a hacker. For the insane reason of getting game assets from Respawn and to drive attention to the Remnant Fleet Discord to somehow help in furthering resurrection of a failed Korean mobile port of Titanfall.

This is so intensely weird. Again - one guy, Jeanue, being nuts made more sense to me than this.

wtf, so they want to recreate Titanfall Online (a game that never even made it out of South Korea) and manage it? This is batshit. Like... I'm all for another Titanfall title and one that gets lots of new content but not like this.

And the reason why we haven't been able to play titanfall 1 for years and titanfall 2 for months is because they wanted less competition for their never-released asian market titanfall game they wanted to steal the source code to own.

Yeah.

Yeah.

TF1 probably was Jeanue for a while, to my understanding. The more recent attacks including the two day Apex shutdown were these weirdos though.

In the Apex shutdown they put up a message to go to Save Titanfall, in part because it linked to the Remnant Fleet discord.

It's interesting how easily they manipulated media.

So, been trying to get some friends to play titanfall 2 lately but been constantly getting "connection to server timed out" when trying to queue with them.

Is there still a DDOS problem going on, do I need to open up ports to reliably play with them, or what is going on here?

Eyud
Aug 5, 2006



Yeah it's just been like that for the past few weeks, even playing solo. I usually get 1-2 timeouts before finding a match, but once I'm in game things are fine (except pilots vs pilots for some reason, every other mode has been good).

Not sure how true it is but supposedly if you don't mess with your load outs while searching for a game it's less likely to time out? No idea, sounds silly but hey anything to try to make it work.

Was also gone for 6 months without a computer. What's going on with multiplayer? Skimming news articles of looks like some hackers did some stuff and multiplayer is all but impossible now? Or is it only some days? I know I haven't been able to load for 2 days now; I joined during the great steam sale influx of players and it was super fun and it's a shame if you can't play anymore...

Only some days, I was able to play a few days last week, but the attacks have picked back up this week.
