    This is something that should be added in Saxton hale mode. You can be able to choose your own hale because of their unique abilities, also a button that randomizes your hale, which should also make it where you can only be the vagineer and maybe the easter bunny, because they are basically a direct upgrade from saxton hale.

    In normal VSH, I feel this is unnecessary. Also, certain bosses are not 'direct upgrades' of others. Each boss has it's own unique quirks and stats. Here is Saxton Hale's stats...

    Saxton Hale
    -High Knock-back Resistance
    -Medium Range Stun
    -Super Jump

    Compared to other Bosses stats... (+- for trade-off)

    Easter Bunny
    -Very Low Knock-back Resistance (-)
    -Medium Range Stun
    -Super Jump
    -Extra Height on Normal Jump (+)
    -Rage Also Produces Explosive Eggs (+)

    Vagineer

    -Low Knock-back Resistance (-)
    -Medium Range Stun
    -Super Jump
    -Rage Also Gives Uber (+)

    Christian Brutal Sniper (CBS)
    -Low Knock-back Resistance (-)
    -Low Range Stun (-)
    -Super Jump
    -Rage Provides Long Range Weapon (+)

    Horseless Headless Horsemann (HHH)
    -Very High Knock-back Resistance (+)
    -Long Range Stun (+)
    -No Super Jump (-)
    -Teleport (w/ Cooldown) (+)
    -Climb Walls w/ Melee (+)

    TL;DR All bosses are balanced. The only exception I would make of this is on giant maps with big health packs, where HHH tends to have a tougher time on.

    As for being able to choose your boss, I feel it would give experienced players too much of an advantage. I can land cross-map head shots with the Huntsman regularly, so giving me access to CBS every time I'm the boss would be unfair to others.

    However... I do kind of like the idea of being able to choose. Perhaps, if players want the advantage of choosing their boss, maybe they get a downside in return. 15% less health? Maybe a slower hit-speed? Longer time to build up rage? It's just an idea.

    If this suggestion were for Freak Fortress 2 (which I don't play - I don't even know if Skial has FF2 servers) then I would definitely say yes, +1. That's if it isn't already added.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    Steam:

    Yeah, a longer time to build rage would be better, with the exception of saxton hale since, y'know, he's basically the default hale. But maybe actually the disadvantages you said could be used for all the other bosses.
    CBS- longer rage buildup
    Vagineer- 15% Less health
    HHH- Slower hit speed
    Easter bunny- Slower hit speed
    Either that, or it can just randomize, and doesn't matter what hale you choose.
    Also, I forgot to mention, being able to choose Hales would let those get better experience on each hale due to low probability of getting picked to be a special one. Also, I don't think it's an advantage for experienced Hales, because I've seen CBS get pounded or the HHH because of their disadvantages.

    You need to wait a while. Suggestion threads take anywhere from several days to a few weeks.

    Some characters will almost never be played (HHH) if this gets added.

    Maybe if it has a credit price it could be considered. E.g:
    Play as Christian Brutal Sniper for 1 round for 10,000 credits?
