1. No, it doesn't. Using only parts that suit you and disregarding parts that don't suit you makes you a hypocrite. How many more rounds of this do we have to go through? 2. Jet Pack is not a flanking tool. It does nothing to increase your stealth, nor does it help you in actual combat. You get a small advantage only once - as you start attacking. That advantage only lasts as long as enemy awareness is bad. Relying on a quality of the enemy doesn't make it a reliable tool. Read the OP, ffs. You can even get spotted on the approach. Due to lack of scouting information, LA rarely knows what he's getting himself into when performing that surprise attack. What you may thinking be a flanking attack can easily turn into face to face combat with an enemy squad. 3. Proof or didn't happen. Tutorial doesn't count, because it's made upon existing meta. I explain how that meta formed in the OP. 4. Unless I've lost the ability to read and compare numbers, 1.67 KPU of tank mines is greater than 1.24 of C4. Your claim that tank mines take more skill to use is ridiculous and heavily biased, and obviously lacks experience. 5. Thank you, oh the generous lord master for allowing me this liberty. So you got little to no insight into Light Assault. That much was obvious from the start, thanks for confirming that yourself. How about you go play LA for at least a month. Try to C4 some tanks. Then go play infiltrator for another month. Maybe then you'll realize which of two classes is a real flanker, and which actually takes more skill (risk!) to use, mines or C4. As far as I'm concerned, you lack the necessary credentials to have an opinion that's worth considering on the subject at hand.
