Hi everyone, we just landed back in Montreal a few hours ago and Michael told me there were concerns about the Outcast Ranger. I'll lay it all out for ya: We are not currently planning any sniper-focused classes for launch, including Rangers and Scouts. A sniping role, however, is something that will be available for all factions as a subset of particular classes, just not the entire focus of any class. Rangers will be available as a proper class some time post-launch (we're planning ahead). Stealth is currently planned for launch (although we're still working out the details), and will not be exclusive to purchase-able characters.* The Outcast Ranger is a specific character with a limited loadout, like the other elite characters at launch. He is not as powerful as a hero-level character, and therefore can be manifested more frequently. We will present a list of the planned classes for all factions before the launch of the Founder's Program. * (Apologies if this particular point changed from what was said earlier) We spent a long time trying to work out which heroes would be appropriate for the Founder Program for each faction, and one of our biggest priorities was making sure that anything we put in the store did not have any wholly unique gameplay that would feel like a requirement. The characters in the founder & launch store are flavors and cool identities, but they do not have exclusive roles that would cause any sort of handicap if they were not purchased. That said, I totally understand how this could be perceived as something nasty, particularly given the order in which the information was given out. Our intention was to provide a way to take on the identity of a Ranger for fans of that particular unit given that we wouldn't be providing it as a proper class for some time. So what I'd like to know from you Eldar players is your genuine opinion on this character, given the above information. We're constructing the Founder Program with your support, so when there's a problem we want the opportunity to address it.
