I've only ever run swarm three times, and I've earned it three times. I just don't like it. I prefer CUAV, VSAT, EMP or Dogs. CUAV is useful for the team, even if it gets shot down, it usually buys time to cap an objective, especially if timed so that the voice-cue is skipped and the enemies aren't informed they're losing a flag. EMP for large maps and against good teams who use high streaks (made a guy ragequit when I EMPed his swarm and almost peed from laughing so hard), and Dogs when I want full aggresion on small maps. Sometimes I'll sub in Escort Drone on Drone, following the advice of JNasty720. Really makes the C Flag spawn trap a hundred time easier to maintain, and it isn't hard to start with.
