The Light Assault nerf is resented.


The class is weaker in every way than other classes(excepting infiltrators) - except that we have jump jets.

We have no other good feature at all. The only other unique thing we have is "adrenaline" which is actually a worse than the standard suit upgrades.


I suspect it was done because LA tend to get more kills than many other classes.
But since out class offers no utility and has no defensive ability - it stands to reason that players use the class for the only thing it is capable of - killing enemies.

And of course even though our nerfing our only uniquie ability - they decided to delay LA improvments.


Im annoyed.

I'm fairly sure smoke and C4 would classify as utility, and that's ignoring the jump jets which do indeed make the class. LA was and still is the best class.

You can't say "LA is the weakest class..... maybe we're being needed because we get so many kills"........

1 All combat classes get c4

2 Smoke? Really? If you are with a unit that wants smoke - you get an engineer with the underbarrel launcher - because its about 100% better and costs no resources.

I didnt say it was the weakest class. I said except for the JJ it is - so its annoying to nerf the one thing that is good.

As if Jump Jets were this pointless, trivial thing to be glossed over in a comparison.

What nerf?

Am I missing something here? All I spot in the patch notes is an increase in jump jet volume.

Infantry Updates
•Active Heavy Assault Shields and flak armor will no longer stack.
• Jump Jet audio has been increased in volume.
• Grenades are now thrown directly at the aim point. The arc has been slightly modified to work with this change.
• Tanks mines have been increased in size.
•Removed the forced weapon swap after deploying an object.
• Lock-on rocket launchers can no longer lock on to turrets.
• The repair tool targeting now functions similar to the heal tool.
• All extra VS damage scaling at range has been removed. VS minimum damage now matches the damage scaling of the other two factions.

Edit - and as an avid MAX fan, I consider LAs to be one of the biggest threats to me. Not that I'm complaining about this; seems fair enough; and I've pulled LA + C4 to take out a few MAXes in my time too.

Stealth ambush nerf really. Pretty hard to react to something you don't hear coming.

Wow. Try this on for size:

"The new 1200hp mustang is slower in every way than other cars, except for the engine."

C4 with jump jets are HUGE. Turrets are your BITCH. And you can hop down, restock, and come back up again. YOUR BITCH!

And jump jets ARE a defensive ability. We can dodge VERTICALLY, which throws many people off. Splash damage? Ha! Vertical flanking is pretty huge too. LA can get up on the roof where a lot of normal cover is worthless.

Assault != Stealth.

I would like to see differences in the empires' LA jets:

TR: Meduim audio, medium visual. Like it is now, more or less... maybe a little smoke trail.
NC: LOUD, but little or no visual component.
VS: Silent, glowing light trails. Pretty awesome during the day, BALLS at night.

Me too, but about something else entirely.

While we're at it, let's get MAX footsteps to sound like normal infantry footsteps and equip all our vehicles with better mufflers. And that magrider hum? Gone.

fire your gun to cover the noise

still it's only loud at the start they get quiet enough once you're going, you can still stealth people, just need new tactics is all.

Re: The Light Assault nerf is resented.


In large battles the extra scream of LAs jump jets will hardly be noticable. But I have to agree that in small ops this really is a game changer.
