Like I mentioned above. If you have crazy good gun skills, blind rushing is not so bad. That said, the expert gun v. gun player usually also have good map skills. So the rushing perhaps is not so blind.
It was very telling how good these guys really were when I played with one in league TDM. The only time they didn't fare too well was against an entire party of worms. Even then, if our team was able to kill and dig them out, the dude ended up doing well simply because of his bareboned and an almost natural ability to outgun everyone.
I usually don't change classes becuase (for me, at least) it doesn't seem to change how well or poorly I'm doing in a game.
I use silenced ARs mostly. With a good connection and if I'm playing well, I die usually because I didn't position myself right. In other words, I ran when I should have crouched/stood or crouched/stood when I should have ran. I didn't die because someone outgunned me, but because I was out-maneuvered. In this sense, changing classes wouldn't help.
That said, if I'm consistently being outgunned by a particular player (who incidentally just tends to travel the same routes as I do), I'll change my class to match his (like against the skilled rusher mentioned above.)
I can see that. OTOH, I have 4 guns I use almost all of the time and, within the same class, I have different loadouts I switch between somewhat regularly. For example, I generally don't start with a black hat, but I have a loadout with it for use when calling in a care package. Similarly, I generally don't start with blind eye, but I have a loadout with it in case the other team uses a lot of HKs or calls in a stealth chopper/etc.
Certainly. What I mean is I usually don't change classes for gun reason. But certainly there are lots of good reasons to change them.
If my first Sentry Gun is wiped before it even had a chance to take a shot, I do have a loadout with trophies just in case I get a second one.
If I come across a team that spams lethals/tacticals non stop, I do have a Flak Jacket and/or Mask in place of my Hardline.
And, somewhat back on topic, I have a two classes just for worms.
