Boasting about the days of dial-up battlefield prowess might carry as much weight as the chronic lag associated with the times... but its fun as hell. Simply pointing out a broken dynamic between two polar opposite mechs. Stage the same scenario in the context of a full star of medium - close range chassis and the reality breaks down =P
true with broadband modems the probability of modem lag is ALMOST nill but depending on th speed of the operators computer they may be still limited to a certain role. One were that time isnt of that much importance. Didnt think I was bosting bought anything lol.
Lame Lyran jokes aside I never end up playing the role I intended to when starting a new game. Examples: going into WoW I planned to play a paladin or rogue. I ended up mage. Starting the old republic I thought I go smuggler or bounty hunter. I ended up as a jedi knight. In Brink I thought of playing soldier, but spent most of my time as engineer and so on. Most of the times certain gameplay mechanics simply play out different than I expected. Thus I just try out different things until I find what suits me best in this game.
Nothing wrong with using an Atlas for a scout, other than the lack of speed if your discovered your chances of survival to RTB are higher than say some lights and or Mediums. Id be interested to see that myself though lol
