How do you pick your Escalation character? Do you go with a sentimental favorite, or pick one with abilities that will complement the rest of the team, or something else? On Decepticon maps, I'll grab Starscream first because he's always been my favorite. As a result I've gotten pretty good with him to the point where playing another bot requires me to play a few waves before I can get the hang of that character. On Autobot maps, I generally take anyone with Shockwave ability because I'm so used to having it with Starscream. I'll go with Bumblebee or Arcee usually, and sometimes Silverbolt. Playing any other Autobot can get me in trouble.
