Good news Titanfall PC gamers, if you were missing the Capture the Flag (CTF) and Pilot Hunter modes in the game, you might be pleased to learn that Respawn Entertainment has announced that they will be bringing one of the features back. For those unfamiliar with those features because you never explored the game, Respawn had initially removed them due to the lack of players playing it.
What this meant is that gamers who did want to play it ended up being stuck in a loop when trying to be matchmade with other gamers. In fact Respawn’s stats revealed that less than 1% of the player population played CTF mode. Well regardless it looks like the feature is back, and Respawn has implemented a new system that will no longer cause players to be stuck in a loop when trying to find a game.
“[W]e’re introducing a test of even wider region searches. If you’re searching for 5 minutes without starting a game, [the matchmaker] will eventually widen your search to include neighboring continents. This means you might end up in a game with a much higher ping than you’re used to, but as players pointed out; playing is preferred to not playing at all!”
Unfortunately this only applies to CTF mode. Respawn has not mentioned if they will be bringing back Pilot Hunter mode for the PC, but in the meantime if you were hoping to get some CTF games going on, hopefully the changes Respawn made will result in a better experience.
