    It sounds really like they're going for glass cannon with this - but a bit too much cannon and not enough glass. Guess we'll see.

    Issue is. LA community in large part didn't want dual wield. We want a tool. A team orientated too, damn it.
    Hear from the spirit-world this mystery:
    Creation is summed up, O man, in thee;
    Angel and demon, man and beast art thou,
    Yea, thou art all thou dost appear to be!

    Ive been playing LA a lot and i dont think it particularly needs any love, really. The class has a unique playstyle and it's loads of fun. So, no ...i dont think the LA needs a team-oriented tool at all. It has loads of inherent utility already.

    They are also doing an LA jumpjet revamp. They look a lot more awesome but you are limited to melee attacks only. Here you can see some TR responding with appropriate force to a young lady and her dog:



    But in reality, yeah, dual-wielding sounds a bit over the top, especially sacrificing jumpjets for it, which are basically the whole LA identity.

    Yeah its my most played class.. I'd rather see different options for the jumpjet, you got your standard vertical ones, then the drifter ones(slow but steady and far), maybe something that gives you a extreme speedboast in any direction but doesnt have any hover capabilities? Something like a SRB version of a jumpjet would be epicly fun!

    EDIT: Akimbo smg's..... Thats just boring.. Might as well play The Specialists then

    I have nothing but loathing and contempt for the concept that akimbo weapons are required in multiplayer shooters. It's indicative of a "Hey, what do 12-year-olds think is cool?" mentality, free of imagination or creativity. Conversely, I like Jump Jets. They make fights interesting.

    I'd like to see more options for expanding on the LA's existing role, rather than just forcing in boring ideas without thinking.

    Also - the Zenith is excellent fun. I had a session with it as LA in Allatum Biolab. Using the Adv. Grip + Compensator, I generally hid on roofs and the central tower picking people off. The Pulsar C is much better suited to that task, but the Zenith allowed me to deal with all the other LA's in CQC pretty comfortably. It has amazing hipfire, even with those attachments.

    Dual wield in exchange for jump jets is really dumb.. It would be better if you had to sacrifice your shield for DW. That way you maintain your mobility, deal double damage, but can only take half as much.

    However the TTK on that would be way too short for my liking.

    I like Jump Jets.
    Think any 12 year olds would have liked this guy if you substituted his jump jets for two guns?

    I'm not sure how long this has been in the game but i have found a brilliant bug involving magriders and turbo

    unfortunately youtube doesn't want to upload in a resolution higher than 480p for some unknown reason but you can still make it out, sort of.

    I tried for a good 15 minuites to get it down but it just wouldn't co-operate

    I drove a harasser with SirHoc as gunner during yesterday's night shift. Early assessment suggests that the harasser could now be balanced!

    We managed to kill a sundy, a lightning, a prowler or two, two harassers and many infantry before blowing up to a combination of anti-tank mine, poor driving and a rocket. It was fun and it was no longer the case of encountering any tank or more than one infantry and expect to die within 1 second.

    It seems that the new turbo, fire suppression and increased survivability could very well have made the harasser enjoyable again.

    Yeah, infinite magburn bug. Also works with turbo and afterburner vehicles.

    In the big fight sequence, someone takes an arrow to the knee.

    It is perfect.
