Worth playing multiplayer?
So, multiplayer servers are finally up for me, aka Soundpulse, which means I can now play Multiplayer. I'm kinda worried though, would I get my chassy kicked or what?

I have an escalation mod that allows 10 players and custom team deathmatch characters, if you start broken hope in team deathmatch. Read on for more info. =)

For default escalation, I was told after 50 waves, the game wasn't made for escalation all that much because the developers figured people would get bored before then, and I knew someone who made it to level 70 - 90, supposedly all enemies have cloak after level 50, they can go invisible permanently, but that's what I was told.

Every time I make it to level 30 - 35, alot of players just give up or they die and then they leave, which makes it complicated to keep a match going, thus gets old after a while, and you also don't feel like restarting the match, or after a couple times, depending on what you tolerate for that day.

Send me an email and I can send you the mod, there are no cheats in my mod, and it's not an anti - crash mod either, I only added more maps for fun, as you all know, the only team dm maps are boring, and even early this year... after having the game from way back in early 2011, yes it can get boring having the same maps, I was trying to get more team deathmatch maps, but ended up with a weird result, so as you host this mod... it will be on your server end, but others can get into it because they have the map called broken hope.

It's my escalation mod that I made myself at the end of 2012, if anyone wants to have team deathmatch and escalation combined, it plays in team dm, and acts like escalation, has a team dm score area, but more of a challenge for esc.. as it has no energon amount to show you what you collected just to access doors and weapons/items.

But the mod does allow up to 10 players in escalation, provided people stay in game, if they leave during the match, no one can take their spot, unless it goes down to 3/4 players.

The mod also has campaign maps in escalation mode, yes you can play through the story on the selected map while collecting energon and you can see the scores as well from escalation on the top, I chose specific maps, but I don't have what I had before to open the file and mod it, I could add more maps to it, although I chose specific ones for a reason, this also helps others at any time to complete the campaign on hard difficulty, as well as helps them on specific maps to skip if they need it, although we don't want others to skip maps, but if they struggle, this helps them alot as well as it is fun to host escalation at the same time.

One thing though as you host the mod in escalation mode, if you choose a campaign map, you might see the name and picture, but others only see the name without a picture, this doesn't stop others from getting into the map you selected, so no worries, and if they have the mod, I haven't tested this theory but.. they might see the map picture you selected, that's only a guess if they have the same thing, as unreal games used to do this if you had the same files on the same server for both host and client side, which enabled all others to see it, in the past many years ago.

I haven't used that mod since early this year, and I still have it in a folder somewhere if anyone wants it.

Use a custom character such as a Jet with drain ability, heal grenades and shockwave from team deathmatch! Also has auto drain refill! =)


Also a leader with disrupt ability, careful with this as it can sometimes crash the game in the team deathmatch escalation for the broken hope map, I don't recommend using it, although I have to admit, the disrupt ability on enemy ai bots.. is awesome, as it transforms brutes and titans, you can take the titans weapons away from them this way, and it makes them have a vehicle form, then they come out of it when your disrupt ability ends, be sure to pick up their weapon from the titan before they get back up into bot form.
Also you can use warcry/rage with your custom leader from team deathmatch.

To do this, just simply have a different default team deathmatch map going and once it finishes, and if the next map on random is going to be broken hope, you then get to be that character! =)

It's funny but frustrating when players get stuck with scouts after sniping in the last team dm game, they get taught a lesson, although they usually leave if they are stuck with that option when the broken hope map starts.
Any player that just came in the server lobby right before the map loads, will have only the option of normal escalation characters.

For escalation in team deathmatch, if you choose a custom character right before the team deathmatch escalation that is 10 players, you will get to use that custom character from team dm, very cool things to use in this would be the jet drain ability with your heal grenades and shockwave when you collect energon, also the drain ability auto refills/acts like it does in team deathmatch, where it will automaticly recharge itself to use again, this allows you to drain the enemies all around you with the most amazing visuals as ai enemy bots area all around you, add a heal grenade to that and you have the ultimate weapon, if you are draining tons at once that is, you won't die and this keeps others near you alive, I saved alot of players this way, especially when they were in tight situations with tons of enemies around them and they were about to die, use the heal ray gun as a jet to lift them back up, and the heal grenade at the same time, careful... be sure to use your heal grenades wisely, although you can get more heal grenades if you open the last doors on the top, in the map "broken hope".

As I mentioned, if others leave at 10 players in tdm after the game starts, they then remove others from being able to play in that spot, which is absolutely frustrating and rude to do, when you can clearly see the map is going to be esc broken hope in team dm, and then you leave after it starts, like a few seconds or minute into it.

Also another thing to note, players are impatient or they feel they won't spawn in, only 4 spawn points at the start at a time, if 4 spawn in or 5, then they are standing on your spawn point, move away from there before a wave ends and 4 can spawn in again, wait 2 waves and everyone is in, btw wave 3 is easy to get with that many players as it can be fast, and so everyone spawns in if you are patient.

hehe ^_^ Wow! Quite a detailed letter! I personally love Escalation. But it took me like 2.5 hours worth of playtime to get to the 25th wave. Each following wave is longer (has more enemies) then the previous one, I am not quite sure - does the number of enemies grow according to geometric progression (e.g.2*2*2*2) with each following wave or arithmetic progression (e.g. 2+2+2+2). But really, taking that into account, I do not believe it is possible for a human being to play up to wave 90 or even 50 for that matter ^_^

Sure ppl, you can add me to play. My in-WFC nickname now is Julia_K. (dot in the end ^_^)!

Some can get to 90, depends on the situation, the players you play with, friends, family and others that are willing to stay and not die during a match. =)

Also if a cheater is playing, that can be a reason as well. =P

As far as waves growing depending on even numbers, I do not know. =P
Yes I know, sad, hehe, I've been around a while and I don't know. =P

I've often thought about it but never took the time to find out, yes I should have, and I did figure it was around every 2 or 3 rounds, also I do not like odd numbers, I never have since I was little, something to do with my brain I guess, I don't know.

Even the wisest cannot see all ends/everything. =P
Oh whoops! That's a lord of the rings quote. =)

I am for now, doing a run in escalation on "Defend Iacon" if anyone wants to play with the mod I made a year and a half ago, or a 10 player escalation in broken hope.

Escalation is a Co-Op gamemode where you fend off endless waves of Decepticons or Autobots.

Nope. It comes with the game.

Just like Sound Pulse said, it's like a co-op, but it is more of a last man standing, hints "broken hope" as the map name for autobots.
It's the last stand for that faction "autobots", litteraly a broken ... hope, where they have no where else to run but to fight off endless robots of the opposite faction, as your side is losing, but you might win if the faction that you are, can hold them off.

An example would be helms deep.. the fall of man, from lord of the rings, but in this case, it is the fall of the faction.. either the good side or the bad side, but as you know, megatron and optimus survive almost everything in the series of cartoons/movies/games, almost..

I hope this made it clear as to what escalation is.

Don't forget to check the other threads in the forum. =P

Also check out my guide, it's very helpful, even the downloads. =)

Escalation quickly is understood and can get old, as the maps in this game are small, I just wish they made larger maps, and more maps with the option of more players to join and more options, the limitations get old fast.
I only have a 10 player mod that I made for tdm, and it only works in tdm sadly, but it plays like escalation, no player vs player.
