    Man, I have played with some HORRIBLE "teammates" in WFC escalation the last few days. I had a game the other day on Broken Hope where I would buy everyone else Overshields, Scrapmakers, and even Healing Rays...They would still die very quickly, leaving me to fend for myself on a few different waves in the teens...Finally, I died on like wave 18, I think. I had 287 kills and 1 death..the ENTIRE rest of the TEAM had 96 kills and 11 deaths between the THREE of them....What the hell?

    And it seems like people don't understand the concept that it is a GROUP effort! You have to help each other buy stuff, open doors, revive, etc....You have to be a little bit more strategic..How about NOT openeing ALL 3 doors to the Overshield room in Broken Hope, geniuses? How about only opening one of the doors, and then staying out of the room so they don't spawn there? You go in and get your shields and get out, that's IT! You limit the fronts on which the enemies can attack...How about 3 people not being stuck in one stairway at any given time, clogging it up so you can't back out of there if you need to go get health? Players running into each other and getting in each other's way are the biggest reasons people fail in that game.

    And how about making an effort to revive the guy who has over 5,000 credits and a Scrapmaker, when the rest of the team has about 500 credits between them, so the fight can continue....It seems too often that, as I go, so does the "team"...Arrrgh!

    No one really plays escalation too much anymore, its all about team deathmatch. What platform do you play on?

    That's why I prefer playing escalation with people on my friends list.

    Not too long ago I was playing Escalation on District, and I went down. So these two kids left me to die because they decided to go and hide on the other side of the map. Note this was only wave 4, so I don't see why they'd be afraid of dying that early. I only went down because I was fighting off enemies by myself while they were lollygagging on the other side of the map.

    I don't have a problem with players who are just generally bad at the game, hey when your playing with randoms it's always going to be a lottery. But what I cannot stand is selfish, hoarding, non-teamplayer types. I hate those tigh asses who have like 4,000+ points yet won't open any doors or help out teammates.

    Whenever I have spare points I will always buy my teammates overshields, ammo, nades etc. especially if I see them struggling or they don't have many points.

    I am 1/2 like this. I usually try to save as much as I can because I go all crazy :p  Still, I have no problems to get someone an overshield or half of it if they have no points or not many, but they've shown courage and teamwork.

    You wouldn't have to worry about much if you ever run into me in Escalation. Do you play on 360? That's what I'm stuck with. Anyways, I've had instances where I was literally on the other end of the map and have rushed over to downed teammates, risking my life in the process. I actually care about my teammates.

    i agree. they venture off and dont save you, but expect you to save them. and what really grinds my gears is when you put points into a machine and then someone bo-gaurds you and steals what you spent your hard earned points on. grrrr....

    I WISH I could get a team mate as good as you in escalation. What do I get? People who steal overshields when I die on top of the overshield spawn. That, and people who steal my much needed energon battle pistol. People in this game really suck.

    I try to play Escalation all the time, but it's pretty hard to find matches nowadays.

    I'll be honest...being told how bad I was at the game the DAY it came out for the entire session (by an adult, not some random swearing kid) is pretty much the main reason I don't play online...my 9 year old son logged in later that night and tried and got the same abuse that he also wasn't "good enough to be playing online" and should "be better"...I don't get a lot of time to game so no, I don't eat sleep and breathe every game that comes out, but a few hardcore gamers are also hardcore douchebags and have turned us off to online gaming entirely.

    yeah thats why i rarely go on and just join random rooms with all the wanna be elite dicks.

    some ppl can naturally br good at a game, i can agree with that. but as others said, some ppl spend hours and hours and think that those playing with them should be just as good.

    the game(s) are there for everyone to play and enjoy whether suck or not. got a problem then find others of your own friends to play, if you are going to complain that much, not referring the OP.

    also, im kind of bored of it. its very rinse repeat.

    This, I ave the points I'll always share. I'm usually the first to open doors to the over shield and the scrap maker too. I love escalation, and used to play on it for hrs at a time. There are some selfish a and thoughtless players out there though
