The problem is that SM's are not going to be an elite class, they're going to be a base class. And you don't want a horribly long timer on someone's main class. Also, I see what you're saying about mechanics but the fact is that one bolter round kills an Ork while it still takes concentrated fire to take down a SM. So free to play players will be frustrated. I don't see a lot of free to play Orkz being around that long. Which means the Ork ranks will be thin after the word gets out that its not a good F2P game.
