EA and Respawn’s Titanfall has remained surprisingly stable since its release earlier this month, and other than a few initial problems on launch day, players on Xbox One and PC have generally been able to remain connected online to continue calling in those gigantic mechanical beasts in order to lay waste to anyone who challenges their battle prowess.

That scenario usually ends up with a panicked ejection from the seat of your titan, but it’s always fun while it lasts.

To make sure the fun continues to last, Respawn has set a Titanfall patch live on the server-side of things to balance and tweak a few values, while improving other elements and squashing bugs like so many little military grunts skittering across the ground. Look through the server patch notes for Titanfall below and see what Respawn has massaged into the game:
