    That would be nice... As well as a better method to inform people of who/whom they are talking too.

    Happy ya pansies? I even picked the super special GRO blue for ya. Btw Chem can the HEAT be given the buff waffle anytime soon and the blitz shield i think needs a slight re-do. Blitz shield when on the Assaults back is currently bullet proof which logically makes sense and I abuse admittedly abuse that. Instead can we have it so that if the blitz is on your back then it only gives the assault like an extra 25% armor on the back instead of just outright stopping bullets? If you can caught with your back towards the enemy you should be punished for it but currently the blitz shield gives the Assault quite a nice cushion to fight back. Im lvl 22 Assault so Ive had my fair share of Blitz shield saves.

    Frankly until the Assault's abilities get ironed out I wouldn't dare want to support taking this away from them. As much as I kill people in mid-blitz, even when head-on, the shield on the back seems like a necessary perk for the time being.

    I would agree that the shield on the back really makes up for Blitz being lack luster. While I do think Blitz could be improved, I don't see any drastic improvements being made to it. So since its not very difficult to kill a Blitzing player I feel like its a ok trade off.

    100$ says that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles all play Assault!

    Maybe you could give a small reward each time an oracle detects an enemy; blitz knocks an enemy down; aegis deflects bullets, blackout disables an enemy, ADS damages an enemy, or you kill an enemy within a short duration of exiting stealth?

    Having the power to know where everyone is in front of you is pretty powerful IMO. knowing where people are even if they are not visible is one of the stronger abilities in this game IMO

    Location of the above tester proves the geo service does not work as intended. Unless he's from Norway Iowa :P

    Bad ping gives players an advantage in this game, circumventing the region-lock ruins the experience for everyone.
