Seeing level 15 people with nearly maxed out assault with virtually no other classes played, only using semi autos should be an indicator just how badly overtuned the class is. This is not an uncommon occurrence. People flock to this class because it's a crutch for their lack of skill. KD players abuse it because it has the best weapons in the entire game. When I see 19 out of 32 players in frontline using assault, it's not because of a coincidence. It's because everyone knows it's not only the easiest class but the best class in the game by far.
I would go so far as to argue that if you are not choosing assault for the vast majority of situations are you actually being detrimental to your team. Squad revives and plentiful ammo from bodies means the best weapons in the game can keep coming and reviving.
Recon can't compete kill wise vs semi autos because semi autos are a better choice then all SLR's at almost any range. Same applies to bolt actions. Semi auto's have ridiculous pin point accuracy cross map even without specializations.
Assault rifles outperform SMG's and LMG's again, at the vast majority of situations.
Their is no map, no game type, no situation where assault is not useful. Their is virtually no game played from what I have seen where assault is not the most common class by far.
Assault's power level invalidates the very existence of tanks to a level that's honestly laughable. I got hit by 7 panzerfausts at once in frontlines twisted metal taking the first obj. One faust can easily disable a tank irregardless and render it useless and forcing it to retreat if they don't outright kill it.
The sheer popularity of the class because of it's basically next to no downsides, easy to use weapons, and incredible utility for any situation in the game breaks the balance in a way that I have never experienced before in a BF game.
And before you claim I'm just bad at the game here are my stats for battlefield games I have played:
Assault ruins the balance of the game and needs to be changed. TNT should be given to recons, Semi Auto's need sizable nerfs.
The assault rifles are powerful but I don't feel they need adjustments. Previously I thought the 1-5 full auto was OP but the reality is most people pick the semi autos and being killed by the sturm 1-5, riby, or stg doesn't feel bad the same way it feels to be killed by a semi auto, especially at range.
I realize some people don't like the idea of nerfs. But tanks biggest issue right now, is not disables (tho I hate that system), explosive shell damage, or anything like that. It's the super popularity of the class that was designed to counter them. When conquest servers have over 50% of players or close to, playing one class on a consistent basis you did not balance your classes well.
And again, YOU may not agree with me. But then you have to tell me:
- what downsides does this class have?
- why do you think it needs no nerfs?
- why do you think semi autos should outperform bolt actions and slr's?
- why is it the most popular class in most servers?
- and if it's not overpowered, then why do most people max out assault first and why do lower leveled players instantly gravitate towards semi autos and assault?
- If you think that newer players do not do that, and that most people don't use mostly assault, care to give proof that will disprove my personal experiences?
TLDR fuck assault, you are ruining the balance of the game.
