    Thought it would be a good idea to make this so we can discuss what we like and dislike about the new esclation and ask some qustions along the way but any how im loving how the new esclation is looking a lot more team work is involved even in the abilities

    1 lot of ammo at each spawn point per round bugs me, but I love the 3 strike introduction where if you fail your points carry over to the next game.

    Escalation is awesome it will be awesome in FOC. I like that they are somewhat limiting the options of the players through these upgrade thingys. Makes the entire mode feel more desperate and therefor more fun.

    They never said she isn't in MP modes, or that you can't use her parts (no pun intended) in MP.

    Lol, they said exactly that. They can't put any fem bots in the game due to their different proportions, by that they mean the WHOLE GAME...

    Hopes: Ammo/health/weapons cheaper. Better point system. No more cloak ability characters (lil kids abused that shit way too much and as useful as it was it got annoying to watch Arcees and Air Raids be the only one alive simply because of it).

    Expectations: It will be awesome and more fun than WFC's escalation mode.

    I always thought of all the wavebased modes in shooters out there WFC's had a nuanced- storyline feeling to it. In that it felt less like a waved based survival shooter and more like you were in a war pushing forward and gaining ground (purchasing new areas)... Im kinda annoyed how the narrator doesn't mention this. Its what made Escalation completely unique from other horde modes.

    Funny thing. I just read that Gears Of war:Judgment, plans to do exactly that (put you in a wave based scenerio ,and have you push through in the campaign)

    eh, im over the whole idea of it being only 4 selected characters per map.. it just makes me believe that there could be a dinobot map and if not oh well it will still be a lot of fun.

    The set amount of waves plus selectable difficulty level is making me think of ME3's multiplayer mode. I'm also curious as to how many maps there are going to be. We know there's 4 at least.

    Where did you get this info on the strikes? I wondered what those insignias were for.

    Did they really? Damn...such a shame. Hopefully fembots will appear in escalation mode where different proportions wont matter since the characters aren't custom. Im hoping anyway.

    It would be awesome if you could choose between this new escalation or classic escalation. Classic meaning all characters would be acessible, ammo not only coming once per wave, unlimited waves, etc.
