In a sea of suggestions for improving the LA, and the never-to-come LA update, I've been thinking of what's really bugging me about my favorite class. Then yesterday, I've been defending a base on Hossin, and a TR LA tried jet-packing onto a Tower landing pad from a tree. I've spotted him in time, took out my Blackhand, and shot him without ADS. From a distance. That's how much time I had on disposal. Instead of feeling good about my aim ( ), I felt kind of sorry for him. But then I thought - that's how I look too! And all of the other LA as well. So, our special ability is at the same time our biggest crutch. It slows us down, gives away a sound, screws up our aim and just completely exposes us vulnerable to the enemy. Yes, it needs to have some downsides or it'd allow for too much mobility. But still I believe SOE (DBG) made a huge mistake as mobility IS our ace-from-the-sleeve signature ability. While keeping every property jump-jets already have (and I'm talking normal jump-jets), it shouldn't slow us down. It should instead speed us up by a percent. The exact percent would have to be a result of testing, but it should definitely be a speed-up. Jump-jets already have a limited amount of fuel, so we won't be able to run around in increased speed indefinitely. I often find myself running frantically while playing LA - inside through the doorway, shoot, fly out the window, another entrance from the roof, fly out the window again... Trying to outplay and confuse the enemy. But every time I am forced to use my jump-jets it feels just so underwhelming and sluggish. I am exposed. I am wasting precious time. I can't aim. Everyone who at that moment wasn't aware I'm there now know there's a LA around because of a moderately loud sound and is now expecting me to show up. Fine. But at least make my jet-pack an actual bad-*** utility! Some might argue it already is, and I'll agree to an extent. An LA requires an aggressive style of play, great reflexes and a situational awareness. But very often I'll be "punished by the game" even if I do everything right, just because I'm SLOW while flying. Reward good LA players and reward their right choices by allowing them to pull everything off the right way. We don't need no dual wield. Buff the jump-jet speed.
