    Phase 2 Beta - Class Representation.

    So I was just thinking about boobs, when suddenly out of the blue, I get the idea for this forum post.
    I'm curious, and bored, so indulge me if you will.

    When Phase 2 rolls around, what Class do you plan on playing in a primary sense? Is it a different class than the one you played in phase 1? And why do you think you'll choose to play this class?


    Personally, I think I will be giving specialist a good hard look. I played Assault to lvl 20 in the beta, and while I like most of the gameplay, I often found myself feeling not very assaulty (or apeppery for that matter). I found that when armed with an assault rifle the best tactic generally was to hang back and provide fire support for the guys using smg's and lmgs - and found that my abilities often sat by the wayside because they were so situational (or in the case of heat, useless . This generally meant I would not get quite as many captures as other people on my team, despite being a key part to every capture, and since captures seem to equal more xp - well it seems to make sense to be in on them as often as possible.

    I look at specialists and they seem to have the best of all worlds. They have extremely low recoil on full auto with LMG's, and pack a deadly punch in the face with shotguns, and also have useful special abilities and provide great utility to their team via aegis - Basically, they feel like they are more of a point assault class than the actual assault class.

    I may or may not resume playing the assault class eventually, but I've played assault for several beta phases already and think a change may do me good.

    Anyone else want to contribute?

    I'll probably stick with Spec through level 20, and then see what I feel like doing. Cloaked recon, probably.

    I want to test out the ACR SV first then after playing with that for a little while I think I'm going to try specialist. I to think they have the best of all worlds... Imagine a whole team of Specialists, they all just rotate there Aegis and cap every point like its nothing xD

    Until you throw one grenade, and kill all of them. It only block bullets, not nades, or incoming assault charges.

    For the pure AEGIS formation, classic counters would be the Blitz charges accompanied with shotguns, the cloaked Recon backstab, the ADS sunburn and your good ole friend the Blackout. The AEGIS itself loses energy when being fired upon, though not enough at this point. A rebalance should address that. Basically, the sustained fire of an LMG should make short work of the AEGIS formation should it show up.

    So I made it to level 16 via Assault. I purchased 3 rifles along the way; keeping 2 of them.
    Like Liquid, I found myself using less shield and more tactics to aid my team-meats. I try to get in on the first capture at least, after that it is rare that I am in on a capture.
    The shield is great if someone else is there to take the shot while I switch to a weapon, otherwise, I am usually dead meat.

    Well, I'm getting my Assault to level 20 first, I believe he's level 11 or so. Then I'll most likely switch to Specialist. As an Assault, I typically just rush points, and the lack of effective abilities (I don't consider my shield effective) makes me feel as though my playstyle would probably be better suited as a Specialist.

    Recoil is unrealistically low even for a game. Shotguns have too much range. Every class feels more like Assault than actual Assault.

    I beg to differ. This game is one of few that actually gets the range of shotguns right.
