Titanfall and Competitive Gaming.
With new games comes new speculation into who will play them – Competitive players sometimes can be the loudest - however they can also define games. Halo 2 for example, almost needed competitive gamers to define that platform. It is correct, Comp Gamers are the minority. There seems to be a weight being placed on the shoulders of competitive gamers from casual community that are in fear that a game would be "ruined" by the onset of competitive players or playlists. Or that Respawn will court or cater to that community only.
