Which Character do you mainly use and why?

I find myself mainly using Voltar nowadays, which is surprising. I'm usually the kind of person to go in guns blazing but there's something about being able to heal my teammates that appeals to me in Awesomenauts. So how about you guys, which character do you mainly use. And I should have added a Random option for those that roll with whatever is given to you, sorry about that.

I switch between Clunk and Voltar, depending on the situation.

Froggy G, he is pretty amazing at abusing and bullying other players.

Lonestar, I just love the early game damage potential from the dynamite. Also I've yet to really figure out how to do the massive bursts I've seen some Leons do.

Leon is what I roll. The tongue is fantastic to harass and dominate opponents, especially once you get your basic attack upgraded a bit.

I use Leon Chameleon. He is the only melee and he is the fast stealth assasin, Perfect for ambushing and his tongue snatch reminds me so much of the Pudge's hook from the original Dota XD

I always choose random since you get a1000 solar bonus at the end of the game I usally do really well as any hero but I hate being picked as Voltar since I have to rely on other people.

Froggy G, because of the song.

clunk, cause I like the bite that increases my life. Focus on getting power bite that steals life and increases my life and big guns. I can stand in front of a turret by myself and take shots for a few seconds which can be real important at times. I like froggy G but I find myself dying more cause I'm more focused on powering up attacks than adding life.

Began as a froggy guy, but was forced to use Clunk which improved my play considerably. Haven't looked back.

After playing a bit more I've got to say Lonestar is quite a beast. Having 3 dynamite with life steal and the hyper bull to push everyone away is a great combo.

Also upping his movement speed with triple jump is great for getting away fast.

Leon. A walking, attack clone going round while I backstab people is great. If not him, then the healer, Voltar. Healing is actually great fun in this game, and in addition to this he is heavily over-powered.

Leon mainly for that tongue grab. So satisfying to rope back a retreating player with that tongue to grab a kill.

Leon. Finally, I can put my years of playing Castlevania endlessly to use killing other players with melee ranged attacks. Leon's a carry in the beginning, but it's not so bad. I try to push his damage output and then slowly trickle in to his other skills once I've reached full basic attack damage potential. I like Lonestar as well since he's the ultimate turret defender.

May be changing vote from Clunk to Yuri - I unlocked him and he's a beast, except that he gets rocked by Leon

The griefing potential with Leon is just too much fun to pass up, so I usually end up turret-pulling people with Leon.

I almost always play with a friend who uses Voltar so I choose Clunk and we make a brilliant team.

I keep coming back to Yuri, because hoovering out of range while dumping mines everywhere is fun!
