    I was playing Titanfall 2 earlier and it hit me, I should look up Titanfall forums and see if there are any that interest me. I found a couple on Google, one that is run by Respawn and the other a fan-made forum. The first thing I noticed, besides how professional it looked, was that it had a lot of posts. I haven't looked into the community yet, but excluding EVERYTHING ELSE, the forum organization is rather vague and general for a gaming forum. http://www.titanfall-community.com/forums/

    Then I look at how I have my forums laid out and notice that mine are much more specific, which is obviously bad as evident by the lack of activity I got when I was actively working on it. I feel like I am wasting a ton of potential with my forum and cod4forum.com (http://cod4zone.com) since this Titanfall forum is doing very successful as a much less populated game. I look at my forum and obviously the forum layout isn't guest friendly, it may be too precise. I am just curious about your thoughts on this and if you have any suggestions for me or your opinion on this topic. Thank you and I appreciate any replies!

    Yesterday I expanded the forums. Thoughts?

    I still want to adjust them, but this is the general direction I'm heading in.

    You will find that COD has been around a LOT longer than TitanFail (I hated the first version and still am hesitant about buying the second).
    Because COD has been out longer, there are more sites related to it. I used to be a big COD fan, but the run & gun issues with the online play (not to mention the piss-poor small maps and campers) really ruined it for me and I haven't purchased a copy of that line since Black Ops 2. I'm more a BF fiend. Good size maps with different type battles for online play.
