There is a lot of discussion about new and exciting abilities for Light Assaults. These suggestions try and make LA more synergistic with the rest of squads or more give them more PEW PEW. I personally think there are fundamental flaws in this thinking. Light Assaults have a lot to offer teams; flanking, C4, ignoring walls, beacon planting, flanking and ninja antics. LAs also have an amount of firepower that, while not overwhelming, is usable and needs to be carefully balanced against our mobility. What we don't do is play well with others. At the moment if a LA dies on a roof or a rock we stay dead. Since there isn't much point in being an LA if you don't at least use rooves to get to where you're going that is a serious problem. This is a problem since in planetside a squad can be defined as a group of people who coordinate and have medics. Without the option to rez people you may as well be zerging. Your squad looses cohesion and people have to walk back from a spawn (perhaps across hostile ground). LAs who are doing their job can't be rezzed. One solution to this is the idea that LA utility should be some kind of "bring squad mates to the roofs". I don't think this is a good idea at all. There is a reason we have carbines not ARs, sniper rifles or LMGs and letting ARs, sniper rifles and LMGs on the rooves is just going to create problems. It would also dilute the role of LAs by letting more effective killing classes to compete with LAs for rooftop sniping rights. So if we can't bring medics to the rooves what can be done? Light Assaults can be given the ability to rez people. This would enhance their team role by creating meaningful teamwork for LAs on rooves rather than just competing for kills. LAs shouldn't have healing in their rez tool and they shouldn't be able to rez people at more than 20%. Instead I suggest that a LA rez would have a cooldown which is what certs can upgrade. This is so that it doesn't compete too strongly with medic's rezzes. It also means that LAs will still need to go and find their squad medics to heal them, unless they are packing medkits. I suggest a nanite jumper cable aesthetic for them. I'd love to hear some feedback for this undoubtedly horrible idea. TLDR: LAs don't play well with others and shouldn't. They should play well with other LAs which means giving them a rez.
