    So i got the Dinobot DLC for FoC
    hell ya!

    ...But...why isn't there an new Escalation?

    Grimlock as sheild dude
    Sla~i mean Slug as Ammo dude
    Snarl as medic dude
    and Swoop as Turrent guy.
    BOOM DONE!

    A new map would be aces. But even if they cheapped out and re-used a map. We'd have the Dinobots in Escalation it'd be awesome. Come on Highmoon.

    To be honest, I figured the only Dinobot DLC would be Escalation, so don't ask me...

    Replace a dinobot with Sludge and you got a deal.

    I want a unique one where they all get special abilities, like

    Grimlock - Dino mode
    Slug - Super Ram (Instant kill)
    Snarl - ?
    Swoop - ?

    Maybe Snarl could flip and shred enemies with his plates, and Swoop could fire barrages of rockets? I would have put them in the list but they're kinda random and not really related to the character, so I'm not sure...

    This really should have been included with the character pack. Definitely a missed opportunity if they don't end up doing a Dinobot Escalation map. It even fits so well with their new "restricted to 4 specific character" Escalation mode. Hopefully it is in the works and comes out at a decent price.

    This is actually my biggest disappointment so far.

    I mean, they had the completely formula there with the characters. I was actually expecting an Escalation map for them.

    Yeah the lack of an Escalation map is really dumb.
    They all fit easily and it would have been a good chance to use Sludge.

    Grimlock - Flak Shield
    Slag - Ammo Beacon
    Snarl - Sentry Turret
    Sludge - Heal Beam

    But then people would bring up the very good question of why we can't use Sludges parts in MP.

    I'd like all of them to have just default swords and each have their own perk. It'd be interesting to bash deceptichumps with cool executions like from Grimlocks campain.

    Nah man, give them different weapons. In War we had tons of different energon weapons besides swords. Maces, Axes, Hammers, etc.

    Grimlock = Sword
    Slug = Mace
    Snarl = Axe
    Sludge = Hammer
    Swoop = Dunno about this one, maybe a different type of sword, or a smaller knife-like blade?

    That would work. I don't see the problem with HMS having a Dinobot escalation.

    Anyone notice this?

    Dinobots using their campaign colors, down below are doors and ammo pickups. They're on an Escalation map.

    Looks like desolation to me, except reused as a background for the trailer.

    Actually it doesn't look like desolation to me, more like the other Dececpticon map with Quake on it.

    Did you zoom in on the thumbnail? I don't think it looks like that map at all, not to mention there are no yellow heavy weapon ammo pickups and doors to unlock in any multiplayer map.

    Looks nothing like Desolation to me, that map is all rusty and gross. That map in the trailer is clean and nice looking too.

    I thought that was desolation? Whatever the name is, it's the one with the Combaticons and Quake.

    EDIT: Just checked, it's called Downfall.

    Good catch! I wonder what they're going to charge for it. $10 seems to be their favorite number but I don't want to pay that for 1 map. 3 or 4 maps, yeah, ok.
