I could have started a new thread but why? The comments in this one would likely just be duplicated when I ask the following question:
Have regiments reached some universal, or at least widely accepted, agreement on the use of engineers in Line Battles?
I'm only just downloading the game now and have not played yet but, from watching some of the excellent youtube coverage of MP gameplay, I'm quite interested in being an engineer. In those videos, I've seen some good...engineering and some that seemed lackluster or forced (upon someone not really interested in that role) or less than optimal (IMHO) compared to the possibilities.
If, based on the prior comments in this thread, engineers are being discouraged or have had limits placed on what they can and can't do in ANY sort of MP situation, not just line battles, I would really like to know now. I want to...train...myself to work within those limits rather than waste time devising constructs and concepts that may be impractical due to build point limits or have been outright banned from MP.
Any information would be welcome.
