Having played mostly recon until this phase... I find it odd that the other 2 classes can only activate their devices basically one time. Once they are fully charged.
Why is this?
now, I am complete recon advocate as you would know if you have ever played with (or been frustrated by) me. I LOVE the recon devices, and cannot imagine only being able to use them once per FULL charge. That being said, why the hell cant I use my blitz or microwave the same way?
It is not game breaking to do so... and most of the time I blitz, I have about 60% left over after I Rhino someone. And I CANNOT activate again until I wait the obligitory 2 to 3 min until it is full again. This just does not fit with what recon is able to do. Namely : Use my abilities, at will, until I drain the battery.
Recon can cloak, and cloak, and cloak again. And see through walls in quick bursts for almost the entire map if they manage it properly. But every other class is seems to have a serious handicap regarding these tools! Was there a serious reason for this that I fail to see?
This is NOT a recon hate thread. I love mine, and surely dont want my abilities changed. And I am only up to lvl 13 on my Assault (and have almost all of my acheivements completed), so any feedback from a long time blitz user or otherwise would be appreciated. Mainly, I love to fry people with the microwave, and it seems a HUGE waste to activate it for 10 sec or so till I am in place or get a Heat assist, and then have to wait FOREVER to use it again even though I have a practically full bat.
My two cents.
