since theres no limit in how many people that can be maxs and there is no way to take them down without rockets or grenades etc. what is going to stop everyone from being a max.

Someone tell me!!!!!

They're cumbersome, limited to 3 weapons (anti-infantry, anti-armor, anti-air), can't use special equipment (BANKs, ACEs, etc), and they can't pilot vehicles. You won't be able to fill many roles other than heavy offense/defense as a MAX whereas the other armors are more versatile.

so only the pilots aren't in MAX you hardly would see them anyway and what else do you need beside anti-infantry, anti-armor, and anti-air plus there not going to be cumbersome meaning they keep moving after you stop moving the mouse just slow giving them more accuracy.

And to the sniper debate i add, if the scopes are fixed meaning when you use it, you see max zoom so hitting anyone up close would be difficult. and with only a pistol up close and these so called invencible maxs running around that can't be taken down by bullets.

My apologies. I meant limited to ONE of 3 weapons. They can't carry all 3 at once.

still they would be unstopable in groups of three let alone a squad.

They aer slow and cumbersome, not everyone's cup of tea.

Whats to stop everyone from being an infiltrator, or a medic?!

They have disadvantages, walking 5km between bases would be a nightmare.

In my experience theres not manny who want to be a heavy trooper (heavy as in MAX). The slowness turns people away, esp when you consider that you can do much more in a reinfroced armor, use vehicles and carry more than 1 wep. But me personally i've always loved beeing the trooper whit the biggest gun

Forgott to mention that MAX's also can't use anny tools or things you can carry in your inventory. Might be able to use nades tho, not sure bout that.. Maybee Hamma could enlighten us? =)

Pretty sure they can use nades - I dont see a reason why they would not be allowed to. Hell, they have the inventory space
