    I love playing Escalation, but it requires teamwork. Which is hard to do without the ability to talk. I've only encountered one person with a headset, but it was in team deathmatch. Does anyone on here use a headset?

    I'd use one, if I wanted to hear some 9 year old swear in my ear or some douche brag about how great he is. I only use mine with people I know. Unfortunately, none of them play WFC. That sucks, because I'm missing out on Escalation.

    Similar to AllBurnedOut, I would normally use mine if my friends were on but I found there to be a little too much trash talking that it just got annoying.

    I don't really like talking to people I don't know so I don't use it often. Though that often goes hand in hand with not wanting to hear a 9 year old curse like a sailor.

    I have been silently kicking myself for not using it more often in team based games.

    It's pretty much the same for me. I usually keep my headset unplugged when I start playing a match, but if I see that there's some chatter going on, I'll slip in my headset during the loading screen or just whenever. Unfortunately, most of the times I have my headset plugged in it's just some guy trashtalking/swearing. I like to use my headset only with friends too, which is why I stay away from those random Escalation matches you can join.

    I sometimes use mine just to filter out annoying players, the other night there was this kid who commentated on EVERYthing he did. Switched the headset on and left it off my ear for some peace and quiet :)

    I do, but I usually go into an xbox live party so I can't hear anyone. (or I'm in one already)

    I use my headset in Escalation matches everytime I play, UNLESS.............. there is the dreaded kid who dont shut the hell up, singing as loud as possible (same wit screaming), cursing badly,telling you how to play, asking how old u are, what their fav cereal is etc.. (you all have experienced this), and the occasional duchebag. In MP I never use it only when my friends or my brother or daughter is on an we do party chat.

    For the record, my favorite cereal is currently Froot Loops, and yes I've earned a degree from college.

    I used to usually prefer only to talk to my friends but now I realize its dire importance in certain games like Escalation. This one Jazz player did not have his mic on the entire game and racked up nearly 4000 points, which we were begging him to spend on opening doors and activitating the Trypticon pulse thingy, but he never complied or responded. This made it harder on us as we had to manage spending points on these as well as ammo/health.

    I must say Shadow that few people have actually lended me points in Escalation. And when they have, I've been sure to return the favor.

    I also must note that people who old up to 1000 points will usually not open a single door. Yay.

    When ever I play escalation I try to make sure the health or over shield tank is basically full so if someone needs it they get get it right quick. NO ONE returns the favor despite how many times they see me fill it to 99% and walk away.

    I only normally use it when in a private match, but I do have one.

    And I've only played two Escalation matches so far (completely sucked at both of them.. I don't think we got past wave 6), I'm focusing more on traditional multiplayer right now, though that'll probably change soon, I don't have TOO much longer to go until I hit Prime Mode (Soldier's at 22, Scientist's at 17, the others are maxed)...

    Unless, as said above, I end up getting really annoying players, though, I'll likely use my headset in every Escalation match after the disaster that was my first two. Even if no one else can talk back, that mode requires SOME kind of coordination....
