    I'd appreciate if anyone asked if Dinobots and Insecticons will be in Escalation.

    For some reason I get the feeling that he won't be answering questions regarding content in the final game; I can't imagine nobody's asked any such questions, but the only ones he's answered pertain to the development process or future plans.

    "Hey Matt, huge fan and I love everything about the game we have seen so far! My questions is about multiplayer. I am wondering if their will be killstreak rewards in the game and if we can expect new multiplayer game modes as the game progresses through its life? Thx - SoooMungry"

    "SoooMungry - I'm actually a fan of yours. At the studio we watch your Youtube channel and read the comments - thank you for your excitement for the game. Regarding Killstreaks, we had them in for a while during our dev of the game, we took them out for balance reasons. Let me explain, every game has a very unique MP pace and with all the changes from WFC, what we were seeing was runaway gamers, specifically due to killstreaks. By removing them, they game was more competitive. Along a similar vein we removed double jump, many gamers initial reaction were negative until the played it for a bit and realized that the streamlined approach actually made it better. remember this isn't WFC2 this is FOC."

    "what we were seeing was runaway gamers"

    huh? What is a runaway gamer? Camper? Shoot and run away? I think that's a terrible choice to remove killstreaks. Do runaway gamers hurt Call of Duty?

    I read that they Dark Energon in WFC/FOC isn't the same thing as it is in TF Prime, something that I and many others here have been saying since WFC:lol 

    I rather enjoyed how he explained what was borrowed from previous Transformers lines and what they added that is there own. Best of all was how he explained that the story starts and stops with HMS. Hasbro doesn't do all that much with what HMS is doing:D

    no killstreaks??? Man I'm starting to really believe people who say this game has been dumbed down to accommodate less skillful players. This sucks. But I can tolerate that, if they set uP a color slider and offer a wider degree of color customization, bringing back barrel roll for scientists, and a bonus in-game reward for maxing out all your classes and reaching prime mode, maybe an option choosing at least 3 killstreak capabilities and make it permanent for your customized character. If they don't do this, this game is officially a complete borefest, without anything to do but shoot and kill and not even have a bonus reward for playing a good game. I mean what would be the point??? Several Weapon upgrades (not just limited to a maximum of 3 and even then you can only choose one) would be nice if they don't plan on putting killstreaks anymore in the game.
