    Any word on what kind of "love" Light Assault will be getting? As quoted by Higby on twitter...

    Honestly Light Assault needs a second ability. Every other class has two class defining abilities.

    Heavy Assault: Rockets + Shields
    Medic: Medic tool + Heal Aura/Revive Grenades
    Engineer: Turret + Repair Tool + Ammo
    Max: massive armor + dual wielding guns.
    Infiltrator: Cloak + Hacking
    Light Assault: Jet Pack

    In early beta we had ammo kits and I understand why they gave it to engineers but as it stands now Light Assault really feels like half a class. Less than that if you don't have C4 unlocked. (Not that the jet pack isn't awesome.)

    I want a portable elevator pad, one that I could throw down at the base of a wall and let my squad ride up. We need a support role and getting to high places is sorta our thing anyway.

    Like the Telekinesis spell in Darkfall.

    give us Passive C4 and gimme back my 700 certs.

    I always wanted to see the LA get some tools that would play up his ability as a forward scout. Something that would add to his ability as a teammate as opposed to being a very lone-wolf class currently. Maybe some sort of advanced spotting or even helping other classes reach higher points once he jets up like a rope. Just a thought :)

    Lol x2. I dunno how I'm ever going to save for the second c4 when I want to upgrade my Magrider and Scythe, not too mention all the other LA class and weapon certs.

    I think LA should be immune to Q. at least for me, my survival largely depends if I can sneak around.
    Jump in, kill someone, run around a corner, jump pack up and over, then get shot by the guy that was following my icon.

    Where is this quote? I can't seem to find it on his twitter.

    I'm already in love with the light assault with just the jet pack. I hope this doesn't turn the LA into the FOTM making LA zergs heh.
  11. Beltway

    Not sure what kind of love he could possibly mean. I mean hell you guys can fricken fly!o_O
  12. Achmed20

    we got a class ability. We die instantly when some1 stares at us :eek: :mad:
  13. Sparks

    Double D's for female characters, I called it!
  14. Xaielao

    Yea I'd love if we got a bit more survivability. When even a medic can hand you your *** in a strait 1 on 1 firefight at close range (especially if you aren't using a shotgun), you know something is off.

    A second ability would be killer though. Perhaps first C4 for free, that'd be awesome but it would have to come with a cert refund. After all, afaik LA is the only class in the game that has to spend 700 certs to be considered 'complete'. It'd be like a HA not starting with a rocket launcher heh.

    Give the LA the infiltrator's radar gun and buff it's duration and range. If I'm going to jet above the enemy and behind enemy lines, I might as well be able to drop radar for my buddies coming around the corner

    So no one has been able to locate this mysterious tweet which I somehow can't find?

    Does "sprint really fast" count? :p.
  18. Purple

    it stil feels like the pump is not working and without it you sprint just as fast as everyone.

    im sure it will be that all LA get a rope that you can tie to maxes. just imagine 6 LA rising over a wall with one max hanging under them.

    Go figure. So it's a placebo then? You're going " Wooooohoooooo sooooo faaaast!!!!!" while not noticing the engineer keeping up with you.
