    Is that you can play as the actual characters online. DOTM gave you the ability to customize and use the actual character online. I hope Fall of Cybertron has both features.

    you could use the character models in WfC, but their abilities changed from what they had in single player due to the class layouts.

    I'm sure in FoC, you'll be able to make the title characters with the options available as well.

    In Fall of Cybertron, they are going to allow us to truly create our own transformer instead of just recoloring a character model.

    I am still not keen on the whole "your chassis is the same but the colors are different for both teams" idea. But I just hope you have alot of choices with chassis and what not.

    They have said that you will be able to change bout 6 parts of the robot, the head, arms, chest(and therefore the vehicle mode) legs, wheels and something else , I think it was upper and lower arms maybe

    so we still wont have the full range of colours on both sides? that sucks... and isn't there gonna be bonuses placed on each part? like + to speed or armor and stuff like that i like this but as i reckon there wont be an insane amount of different parts for each class lack of overlap will make customization a little sterile personally though i'll still build for looks and make do! :D  i guess it's really only the bodies that matter for alt mode so it's not so bad maybe?
    so long as decepticons get my fav customization colours i'll be alright hehe.

    There has been no mention of color pallet restrictions. There has been relatively little talk of multiplayer at all because it is still very early in development.

    As much as I would like it, having all colors available to both factions is a bad idea. Can you imagine the confusion? I mean, even though they would be identified on the screen as the opposite team, it'd still be too easy to get confused.
    No, its better that you have seperate colors, though the 'cons do need more options. Autobots should get blue, red, yellow, white, green. Decepticons should get teal, purple, black, brown, maroon. Given the shading options, that'd be more than enough customization to satisfy the fans.

    And this is why we have names above heads with the appropriate team colour. Plus I'm sure that disguise won't be in it and if it will it's now a character specific ability like Artillery Strike or whatever it's called.

    Disguise was really kinda silly in WFC. I mean and Autobot Shockwave? C'mon. :lol  I was like "I see you Decepticon colored Jetfire"

    No...definitely was a useless ability, especially for the Scientists. I would rather another AOE ability like the "shockwave" or as someone mentioned earlier about calling in a strike.

    Just to voice my prediction, I expect Fall to have the same outline that Dark of the Moon had. Hence disguise will change the color of that.

    Also I've fallen for that trick many times especially in the middle of a fight.

    It still helps to have differing colors for different teams. Thats why every major multiplayer release has done this. Just because this is transformers and you want to make your dream bot doesn't mean High Moon should ignore basic principles.

    I found disguise most useful when using a jet mode that isn't very easily noticed. That is why I use Slipstream and Bluebolt for disguises, their jet modes are fairly similar. Besides, disguise is more used for a flanking technique.

    hey if you mean silverbolt... then i used the same two guys aswell! :D  i never had any problems sneaking past people whilst disguised, it was also good for getting around a corner whilst on the run, disguising then acting like your trying to find that dude that just went around the corner aswell lol... some people are easy to fool. :thumb
