I don't know about you but from a non LA perspective a flying LA is a dead LA, the jetpack is really really slow, you hang in the air forever and the jet pack sound is a blaring siren alerting everyone to look up. If you hear an infil cloak your looking desperately for a shadow and only a small percentage of people play on low, everyone regardless of settings can see a floating LA. If you hear an infil cloak sound, then you are usually dead a second later if the infil is usuing an smg and is half decent. LA's don't have IWIN AI mines and we can't sneak up on people because they hear the jetpack sound before we even have a chance to get in an advantageous position, we cant just magically appear behind clueless players anymore and head dome like infils still can with their cloak sound. No one will ever convince me that an Orion with or without an overshield is not vastly superior to any carbine in the game, the ads strafe speed, damage, clip size and rof make it arguably the best cqc machine gun in the game. LA's would be insanely OP if we could use any of those LMG's. Rooftops are good cover, but we dont have any long range weapons to fully take advantage of them and soon as we shoot we have other LA, snipers, air on our behinds faster than a fat chick on cake.
