    Everybody is complaining that there are only 15 waves in escalation. Does anybody but me think that it could be hard to get to 15? Surly they would make each wave a lot harder.

    It was hard as dooky in WFC, and I never even earned the achievement. Anyone who is complaining should drink a nice tall glass of shut the hell up.

    Oh yea. I believe making it to 15 will be like making it to 25 in WFC.

    My issue is just that they have shown almost nothing about the game mode video wise, they are all of 2 videos showing the mode.

    I like that. I've already seen too much of the game as it is.

    Deffinatly

    There are also difficulty levels so if it is too easy then make it harder and vice versa.

    If its anything like mass effect 3 (I only played the demo and that went up to 10 waves, not sure bout the full game) then it'll be very difficult to get to the end (IMO)

    I think it is better to not have a limit though as u can try and endlessly beat your score but I'm not too worried but I would like if there was no limit

    Yeah, I think it will be fun, but having a limit will kill the replay value [of escalation] a little.

    But 4 fixed characters per map T_T. It's frustrating to see so many characters get added and to know only 12 (Megatron, Soundwave, Shockwave, Starscream, Warpath, Prime, BB, Ratchet, Cliffjumper, Jazz, Perceptor, Wheeljack, and 4 of the Combaticons) will be playable in Escalation.

    I dont mind that there are 4 fixed charectors per map because then we wont have 4 people with abilities which makes them able to go solo and leave everyone else to die becuase they will need the healer to heal them.

    I dont mind the new wave limit for all we know there might be a boss at the end of each game

    4 fixed abilities and 4 fixed characters are 2 different things. Also people will still try to lone wolf it.

    Yep, cause people are stupid like that.

    What I hope they do is have a setting for being able to choose from all the characters and have unlimited waves.

    I hope its hard. Getting to 15 was a breeze solo on the main maps(dlc maps were harder)

    And yes I lone wolfed it, that's what I do. But I don't lone wolf it with other people and not help them, I play private lobby.

    Can you play escalation alone offline ? Also I wish it would be possible to play this mode co-op split-screen, but that's another story...

    It’s too bad they just couldn’t make any character available (well any Autobot or any Decepticon depending on which level you’re playing) and then have each player pick a role instead of having 4 preset characters that already have those roles. Oh well. I’m still excited to try it out.

    I'm sure they'll increase difficulty if they lower the wave amount from 250+ to 15.

    I don't mind that there are 15 waves, so long as I have fun and a decent challenge from the enemy forces :D

    I think it will be fun, but I also think limited waves will badly hurt the replay value (of escalation).

    I don't have a problem with it. I rarely got past wave 20 anyways.
