Re: Assault ... IS BALANCED

I agree completely, if it wasn't for the extra armor I'd even say the assault is weaker than the other classes since they're main weapons are only good against crowds and turrets.  Now assault in pistols only games is a different story alltogether though

Assault's in Pistol's only is fine because everyone is usually Assaults, and if you're not then usually they're Tactician's or Engineer's trying to get turret/sentry kills. Hah.

It's the double armor that always gets me. 2x's as much damage as the other infantry classes makes it a pain to go 1v1 with them unless you got a nice headstart.

Think about it, sniper = 2 shots
M4 revolver = 4 shots
Shotgun = 2 shots
Gun that the Sab uses = 4 shots
SMG = Like a whole clip

Its ridiculous, especially when they are spawn spamming and just keep firing one rocket, get kill, die, then rinse and repeat. In smaller matches, or in places that its chaotic, the assault class is basically a glitch class. They are nearly invincible and can take out multiple people with one shot.

In any other normal FPS online game, rocket spamming is frowned upon, and the developers make it so you only use those things for specific tasks. GG basically encourages people to spam rockets with this nearly invincible class that can only use explosive weapons. This is another clue that GG's didn't want this game to be truly tactical, but just run-n-gun.

I hope I see more and more room creators banning the use of assault class, cause the games are so much better because of it.

I agree that it's balanced. Sure, it has some big advantages, but it also has some significant disadvantages. Most complaints are about the rockets, and yes, I hate them also, but it's called the ASSAULT class. Not the "Hide In A Corner" class.

Litho, stop playing - you know that's all you do when you're Assault, just hide in a corner and don't go after any objectives.

Ya but what about in maps like Blood Gracht where an assaulter can just boost all the way to enemy spawn find a quick group of 2-3 enemies shoot em down die and re spawn to do the same thing over and over. Maybe if your not trying to be an **bleep** with assaulter class it could work but unfortunately most people who use it are **bleep**s.
