I'm one of those guys who is really quick to pick up game mechanics and learn how to play a game, and Titanfall is no different for me. My problem is that I seem to hit a very early plateau of skill, and I don't ever seen to improve. Meanwhile, I feel that there are a lot of other players who surpass me very quickly, and there cones a point where I am consistently last place on the losing team. Okay, not always (yes always, on Glitch), but I feel like my pilot play is kind of abysmal and my Northstar skill is only marginal (although I don't have a problem beating 90% of the other Northstars I run into).
My question, then, is how do you guys work on improving? I have several days worth of time on the game, and I read tips and tricks, watch videos, and have even been practicing gravity boosting off walls and over buildings (which is a ton of fun, if you can pull it off). So my question more specifically is how do I win more gun battles? I have been gradually becoming disgusted by my poor Hemlok and Sidewinder skills, and I am very streaky with the R-97. The weapon I'm most consistent with lately is the R-101, and so that's kind of what I'm working with.
Any suggestions for how I can improve my game? I'm not looking for tips on how to play, but rather how to get better at playing because I am very much representing Team Potato and its bothering me that I don't seem to get better.
