Yes, yes, I know that the good guys will eventually win the war and defeat the Decepticons but c'mon, they're not supposed to suck this bad in combat...
I mean, the only 2 kills the Decepticons ever got over the Autobots all came from Megatron (Jazz and Optimus Prime with the latter reviving in the same movie it dies...). Of course, he's the most powerful Decepticon and everything but it's like his comrades can't do anything right. Starscream is the second best Decepticon and all he ever did was remove a pair of legs from Bumblebee and put up a fight against Ratchet and Ironhide (which was evened by the spanking he received in ROTF).
I mean, when the only Autobot that supposedly stays dead in the whole movie is an ex-Decepticon... that's like a huge slap to the Decepticon insignia.
Here's one hoping that in the next movie(s) the Cons will at least put up a better fight than this
