Are We ever going to get the chance to switch classes in game? I do love being able to change load-outs before respawning, it's one of the reasons i keep playing, but it doesn't make up for the fact that i have to stay within my classes limits. Sometimes no matter what loadout i pick, my class just won't work for that game, because there are too many people in it already. If this doesn't get fixed before the beta is over, i will not be returning to this game.
I think this would help to solve a lot of balance issues. I like to play as recon, though I would switch to balance the team out if need be.
The class limitations are designed to prevent people from choosing the most powerful class for the situation that they're in from moment to moment. You play your class's strengths and weaknesses.
Personally I'd like to see the ability to change classes during warm-up, but after that you're locked in. This would allow people a brief window in which to see how the team is set up vs. the opposition, communicate, and adjust accordingly
