    In RotDS, in escalation mode, you don't play against other players, but CPU-bots, but can you choose your enemy, is there such an option? I mean can I play as Prime and choose my enemy to be Lockdown?

    I haven't noticed anything like that yet. As far as I know the bosses are either random or fixed on certain maps. I haven't played enough Escalation to know for sure.

    Nope. Most enemies in Escalation are generics, but each map has two fixed (I believe) name-character mini-bosses who appear at a certain round.

    For instance, one of the new Earth-based Escalation maps has Stinger and Lockdown as its minibosses.

    I was in an escalation mode last night with another player. I was Drift and he was Snarl. Our level 6 mini-boss was Bumblebee. Yeah, figure that one out. :)

    I have seen both Swindle, Starscream, and Jazz as well as Stinger as mentioned above. I'd imagine both FOC Optimus, Earth Optimus, and FOC Megatron are bosses as well.
