Today i played the Red Tide Operation. Since there are tanks i thought playing assault would be a good idea, it was not.
With making the 08/18 to another Hellomatico you took away the option to fight back at medium ranges. Also the nerf to the ribbeyrolles was not really helpfull.
Every other class have weapons to fight back an assault at closerange, Fedorov, Parabellum, 1903 Experimental for example.
I tried almost all assault weapons and with all i was sniped before i even came close enough to fight back. I did best on medium ranges with the slug shotguns, thats a joke, that are shotguns.
I think you made the assault class with the recent weapon changes and the poor map design, on some maps, not competetive anymore.
