You're talking about making a class less fun for everyone who plays it because you feel insulted that it might be able to do something better than your favorite class. Besides that you might want to actually play a class before forming an opinion about its balance. You've got over 17 days each in HA and Engy vs a total of 34 minutes for LA. I hardly play HA (3%) but I still have 24 hours in it, unlocked suit upgrades for it and tried some different weapons. Enough to know that the "nerf HA shield" threads are mostly BS, people wanting to make a class less fun for everyone who plays it because it might do something better than their favorite class. Put some certs into jump jets, unlock C4 and play LA for a week. It might give you a new perspective on things.
