i'm sure this has been suggested already, but it only makes sense... sure it'll take a couple extra minutes for some games to fully confirm and ready up but it's better than having player 1 reserve for you so you can change gears and come back. why isn't it there to begin with? all this different gear obviously compliments different weapons better according to the players liking at least. adding this feature to the game would open up more sales for Aeria as well coming from people who have been using only 1 set of armor for regular confront melees.
also a completely different topic... make campaigns same regulations as showdowns so people have to be rear gen and higher or level 4 weapon and higher. this would eliminate alt farming on lt colonels, guards, and other new alt accounts.
