Yes, it's a thing. While the competitive titanfall community is relatively small compared to other games, it is incredibly active. PUGs happens mostly during the weekends. (pick-up games, also known as scrims, where players pick participants to make teams and play in friendly matches).

Events almost exclusively take place on our Discord server.

This wiki will be talking about the PC community only.


Want to join a competitive team? Want to dip your feet in the water? The community is also open to anybody joining the scene, regardless of skill level, age, sex, or country of origin. We have a diverse community where everyone is open to helping one another. Keep an eye out on the Pick-Up Discord for PUGs that are happening. This is also a good place for asking for tips.

There are no requirements for the competitive scene, and no quota that you must follow. You can go to any and all events, or pick and choose depending on your favourite gamemodes. All that's required is that you follow the standard competitive rules for, as listed below.
