Here's an image of a poll from GRO's facebook page.
Which character from the screenshot below would you be?
Recon with Sniper Rifle unsurprisingly has the most votes.
With both Recon "with Sniper Rifle" and "on higher ground" of those combined, it appears at least 50% of the players really want to be Recon.
I of course chose Specialist with LMG and Aegis, which you can see is highlight because I voted for it, because I am a baller.
But seriously, many of the people on Facebook haven't gotten access to the game yet but we can already predict that the very first class they'll choose is the Recon.
This really bugs me as we have guaranteed lack of class diversity in the game as soon as the open beta/official release starts.
The GRO team really needs to start promoting the other classes.
