Well I was tooling around with the recon kit and it seems there are frequent times where i'm just sitting far out of the battle trying to find and spot people, if my health has been dropped these 15 second intervals to heal become quite commonplace and I find myself rarely getting shot at when I don't have 100% health. Though that doesn't matter much since the assault rifles seem to match sniper rifle accuracy at most ranges.

Is assault still useful? Yes... does it seem as critical? No.

And to the defib comment, I just unlocked mine and it does become overwhelming with the crazy amount of death indicators on the screen, you sort of just want to revive people that are in well defended locations so that you don't just run in and add another death for your team. Really it needs to become easier to communicate with your team and build team connections. I can't imagine what's going to happen once we get to maps with vehicles, then we'll have support that doesn't dish out ammo, assaults that don't heal people and engineers not repairing vehicles XD.

EDIT: The quickmatch function seems to be down for me, I click it and it just says matchmaking for ages.. it used to at least put me in a queue.

Sort of annoying because it makes it less useful to have an assault/medic player on your team.
I think the regen is a bit too fast, but I understand why they went with it as well as regenerating vehicle armor: those times when you're at 5% armor or health, and your teammates are a bunch of idiots that totally ignore your request for heals or repairs? This solves it.

But this only COMPOUNDS the problem even more. Why do I ever want to heal my team mate? They are just going to sit behind cover and heal anyways. Why would I run out of my way to repair a friendly vehicle? By the time I get there it will be regenerated anyway.

The only way to get people to do these tasks is to make them necessary for optimal team work... there needs to be better ways to ask for the assistance(comm rose). The points for doing the tasks also helps.

But adding regeneration only facilitates even more selfish game play then we see already.

I read somewhere that the regen feature could be turned off (based on the server) ... not sure if this applies to vehicles though.
