Hmmm... a good setup... /me thinks.

I would say 4 platoons of 60 Terran Republic soldiers armed with a variety of Flechette Rifles, Cyclers and Chainblades anchored by two squads per platoon of Mini-Chainguns as a heavy weapons squad.

Providing artillery support/armor would be a platoon of Prowlers and Lightnings.

The air defense would be served up hot with a nice combination of a squadron of an even mix of Mosquitos and Reavers.

Air defense would be handled by another squadron of Mosquitos flying CAP (Combat Air Patrol).

Getting the grunts to the fight would be a plethora of transport vehicles such as Galaxy and Deliverer dropships, Sunderer APCs and the accompanying Harrasers.

The eyes of the team would be the Basilisk scouts on the ground and the Air Wing aloft.


A yes, a grand vision indeed!

60 People Mani!!

Damn, that's a lot of them.

Me, I just want a MAX. Spit lot's of lead, rack up the body count. I've also been thinking a lot about becoming a tank driver. So that I could provide long range support for attacking troops.

Well, I am dreaming of course. I could just call in you, Hamma, Kai, and a few other buds and we will have the same affect.

a army that large would be poerful, but think what 4-8 good snipers could do to it

*take out the scouts, easy as pie*

*Shoot down the sketers, have a few covering the troops*

*Shoot a few soilders*

*get cut down in a hail of fire from something heavy*

*respawn*



oh yea thats the ticket

Actually when I think about it, a Striker and a Cycler would be a nice combo. You have the cycler for close-medium range combat and then the Striker to blow stuff up!

Does anyone else gett the feeling there will be three *class's*?


1) Sniper with some light vehicle cert, like sketer or buggy

2) Guy in a max suit

3) Guy with a tank or reaver or some other heavy weapons toting ship

of course there will be others who do other set ups, but those seem pretty popular it seems, and of course the sniper is the best

There will also be the, sneak in and hack the building, guy.

I get the feeling hit will work something like this.

Support vehicles (tanks and aircraft) move in towards the base trying to be capture. (lots of vehicle pilots needed). The suport vehicles occupy enemy fire the best they can.

When they are getting close to the base, 2 or 3 fast ground troop-transport crafts make a run for the base. The transport is loaded with Heavies, and a couple of speedy agile hackers and a couple of medics. Everone gets out of the transports and then comes the big push and everyone storms the base.

All the while Moskitos have been flying around healing the tanks.

-So pilots(ground and air) will be incredibly useful (I think everyone will have some kind of piloting cert).
-Hacker/recon players will be necessary (this class is the one that is going to take the base and everone should be protecting and providing cover for)
-Heavy weaponed ground attack personell will always be needed.
-When you go forward to attack you always need Medics keeping you healthy.
-And a commander coordinating the whole assault will be invalulable. (don't sleep on the Commander type class)

In short I think there will be a ton of different types of useful classes.

Repeater (If I go Terran), Surpressor, Chainblade (I'm very likely going Terran), Infiltration Suit. Planning for the Commando/Special Forces bit, including hacking and that sort of thing.


As for what typical classes there will be, depends on how well the game is balanced. If the Punisher's anti-armor rockets are very good at what they do, hardly anyone will bother going pure anti-armor. If snipers are too strong, most people will go sniper for their anti-infantry needs. Etc etc.
