    Who do you think is the worst Character for Escalation Mode? Are they too big, too slow, they have useless abilities, bad vehicle weapons, anything. I'd like to know.

    I never really looked at them that much to see who the worst was... But Air Raid is the best on Autobots, second is Jazz at least. Onslaught's a litteral tank for the Decepticons.

    I would agree top 3 are jazz, Arcee and air raid. Jazz and arcee I hardly transform from vehicle mode. They both have serious fire power. I find it easier to put down titans with thier vehicle weapons then with the scrap maker. Makes me love jazz even more

    i use jazz all the time, i only play as another character on public games if he's been picked lol, the scrapmaker is slightly more powerful per bullet (1 clip and 10 bullets will take down a titan) vs the vehicle weapons almost 2 clips, but after playing him, i tried slipstream and her vehicle weapons are useless, two full clips on a shotgunner didn't even take the overshield off. never using her again

    Any characters with the hover ability are pretty much wasted. Exception is Megatron because drain redeems him.

    breakdown feels useless to me. i never was a fan of the dash ability. its odd that barricade has better abilities, because in story mode and multiplayer i like breakdown better.

    I really don't think there's a worst character. It's all about how good the teamwork is being done. For example: Demolishor is a beast. But Ammo Beacon takes time to recharge, and whirlwind can't save you from the most big Decepticons, so solo with him is pointless. If you get surrounded, you die.

    However... If Zeta Prime's ability's are Warcry + Ammo Beacon, we have a serious Leader here people : P

    okay let me think...

    Jetfire sucks...
    Ironhide sucks a bit
    Warpath sucks now since Scattershot came out.
    Onslaught sucks...
    Shockwave sucks (when I play him that is)
    Brawl SUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKKKSSSSSSSSS
    Breakdown Sucks...
    Bumblebee Sucks when the person that plays him is an idiot.


    Hate mail INCOMING! :D

    Agreed. I've run into alot of good Bumblebee players in my time. alot of people play shockwave really well now. although they tend to be a bit too headstrong. (getting downed on early waves)

    Shockwave wins the loser award. Hover and shockwave are the worst abilities by far. After wave 7 both are worthless. Hover isn't bad if you can corner fire, but shockwave is nothing more than a nuisance later on. Won't even kill cloakers wave 15+.

    Whirlwind is only for brutes by then too.

    Everything else is a step up. Even the M-bomb, for escaping bad situations.

    I'm good with any character, but I generally stay away from Scattorshot.

    RE: Worst

    I completely disagree about the Shockwave's inability to kill enemies on waves 15+...I play with Bumblebee and Breakdown ALL the time, and I usually have the highest k/d ratio for anyone I play with in a match of Escalation. I am very good using the dash and shockwave and usually get to the 20's, level-wise with those abilities....It's all in what situations you use them....I think ALL of the jets kind of suck, as the vehicle mode guns are wayyyy too weak, compared to the car mode weapons.....

    let me enhance my older post
    Jetfire SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS!!!!!!! :horse: 

    played him today just to try him out in all seriousness. his abilities don't really mesh well and his frame is too large to manuever in corridors

    Hover + scrapmaker is pretty beast if you can corner-fire so you aren't a sitting(flying) duck. Otherwise there's better options, unless it's about nostalgia

    i'd also like to edit my older post on shockwave. after playing him several times I believe he is good in the right hands (like bumblebee or thundercracker)

    besides if you say he sucks you essentially say starscream sucks because they have the exact same things except for chassis.
