    Played a few with matches with Transformed, man it's fun. Used Shockwave and Jazz, they both are pretty good bots for that mode. Sadly we only got up to Wave 7.

    Dude, I want to play that one with you guys. Tried it last night and it was fun. Definitely requires some coordination, but it's a blast. I just kept finding myself out of ammo with no money to spend, and when I did have money, I had to choose between ammo or heal. Any pointers?

    Highest I've made it is 6 so far. Like playing with Thundercracker of course. Not only is Escalation addicting, the whole game is! Loving it...

    Yeah I was using Shockwave and Jazz the other day.. Man it pulls you in and all you want to do is just keep kicking ass.. Even the arena on the ds is fun! But on Escalation when you have a good group it's just so wonderful and giggly. I really hope that other autobot (tank?) that keeps popping up will be unlocked by someone at some point. I think so far Jazz is my favorite, Shockwave is awesome as well...still trying to get the flying part of the game nailed though..haha

    I would say ammo is priority, cause if you stay close to your team they can keep reviving you..no?yes?

    Well I played this morning cause I'm home for work. Little girl has a bug. What I did was alternate between using ammo from my vehicle form and bot mode. Shockwave and Jazz seem pretty strong. When I used Skywarp it took me a while to rack up kills. And use cover whenever you can.

    Rhinox, SPLITLIP, Rattrap and I all went in as Thundercracker, Slipstream, Skywarp and Starscream. This is hard, but fun.

    I saw dude sorry for not replying. I was winding down for the night and was just helping out Darkblade and his friend get through Starscream's level. I'll be free this afternoon though.

    Cool. Smasher and I played for a good while last night. We're trying to do coop three players though, so if I see you guys on, maybe we can set something up.

    I played last night with some random guys, and two of them were hella good. Should add those to my friends list...

    We were especially kicking ass on the Autobot map and made it up to wave 14! So close.

    I find the Autobot map harder than the Decepticon.


    Is it just me, or does Optimus Prime doesn't feel like a "Prime". I wish he could take more damage.

    Lack of an overshield dispenser or easy, defensible position like the Autobot map (multiple cheap doors in one corner) causes me to say otherwise. Although I think there's some merit in sticking some guys on the ceiling of the main room of the Decepticon map.

    7 is the highest I've ever got on any Escalation also. Its a lot of fun tho. Even tho I do pretty good sometimes, I feel bad when I die because I feel like I've let my team down lol.

    You can get away with that in the earlier waves, but things start to get crazy after 14. I'm truly curious as to how many waves exist, because waves 15 and 16 were insane.
