You may choose from specialized classes such as scouts, snipers, and heavy support gunners. Teamplay is important; a unit of lone wolves with exceptional individual skill won't stand a chance against a unit of averagely skilled players who really support each other.

I finally came back to paying it and now I suck and I totally blame modern shooters for this. Apparently old school shooters require skill!
