Respawn removes CTF and Pilot Hunter from Titanfall PC playlists

Posted on May 19, 2014 AT 02:15am

Respawn has announced that it removed the CTF and Pilot Hunter as separate playlists in the PC version of Titanfall because the number of players accessing them was too low compared to other modes.

“We have an amazing and large PC audience with the vast majority of users predominantly playing Attrition and Hardpoints game modes. CTF and Pilot Hunter have not been widely used modes on the PC versio,” the developer wrote in a blog post. “Players trying to access these modes had overlong wait times to find other users and it was making for a poor experience.

“We want to make sure that not only is there compelling content in the playlists we offer, but that the experience of joining a match works well.”

The developer added that it is continuing to monitor playlist usage on Xbox One and PC, and will add new ones as necessary. “We’re currently working on those new modes and updates and can’t wait to share the details with you.”

Respawn plans to rotate CTF and Pilot Hunter in future playlist updates with new twists. The two modes will not be removed from private matches or the Variety playlist.

“Our goal is to have a wide variety of playlists that are popular and changing. That said, we will not remove modes from Private Matches, so there will always be the option to select them for competitive and personal play. Thanks for your understanding as we try to make Titanfall a better experience for everyone.”
