    I love it, keeps the other team scrambled, and I get points for kills.

    My problems with incompetence generally stem from Escalation. Honestly, how can one not know how to use Heal/Ammo Beacon?!

    It frustrates me so.

    Something that bothers me more is when people don't relentlessly protect (good) healers.

    If I'm a Flak Shield guy, rest assured I'm around to protect the healer/ammo guy. I don't worry too much about the turret guy, since he can spawn a second gun, but the other two I stick close to :)

    I would say the best class for capturing the flag is a scout with cloak but thats just my opinion :D

    Yup, few days ago I was in a match where we were the only one with a point, but no one could manage to capture a flag, and I got the closest because I snuck in with cloak.
    A little tip I picked up is to ALWAYS have your Subsonic Repeater equipped. It increases footspeed. I'm not positive, but I THINK that includes sprinting.

    good tip...

    when assaulting it's good to have a Titan paired with a Scientist healer. Same when defending.

    Looks like I never mentioned this here.

    A few weeks ago when I was pushing to get all the Escalation achievements I had a game that went extremely poorly, we all failed at wave 11 (I was playing ammo beacon guy). Seeing the final score, the guy playing the healer for eleven waves? 96. Not a typo. Ninety six. He plays for eleven waves of Escalation and has a score of 96.

    I've had SEVERAL games where I grew so frigging frustrated with the healer/ ammo guy, that I sent them multiple messages asking (begging) them to use their ability, and instructed them that the right bumper triggers it.

    ...THEN THEY STILL DON'T DO IT.

    My adventures in esclation

    Me: *hits both the healer and ammo guy for there recources*

    Them: *They run away to get ammo and health*

    Then after the match I get a message from the healer saying - Stop hitting me its not like I can heal you!

    I find that everytime I join an escalation match at least one person does not know how to use their abilities! Some people are just stupid.

    Recently I'm finding more and more players in Escalation not bothering to use the Weapons Upgrade terminal, either hording ridiculous amounts of points, or pissing them away on the consumables they wouldn't need if they bothered working with the rest of the team.

    It seriously annoys me that you can't just upgrade your own weapons at the terminal - at a greatly reduced price of course.

    I wish the teams I play on would sick together more often. We've killed before moving as a group but sometimes they just scatter off.

    Also, has anyone been in a situation where a host migration happens and they end up the only one on their team versus 4 or 5 other guys? Keeps happening to me and I get my ass kicked all over the place.

    Me and this other guy were h only ones on our team for almost an entire match against a full opposing team and we tried our best to hold our own though. It was kinda neat, he and I versus the world fighting like crazy.

    Happened to me as the loading of a TDM took like forever.
    As the match finally starts all others one my team had left, so it was me against 5.
    Map was Desolation, so I decided to take my scientist.
    The whole match no one else joined!!!!
    So after time was up, i won 28-20. ;-)
