I had the honor of playing with an excellent Volus random (a Vanguard, no less)

He got 80k+ points in a Condor/Cerberus/Gold game (UUG) competing with a Paladin, Fury, and GI (me), only went down twice I think, and was the only one to extract.

The guy was a champion medic and support player who still managed an effective vanguard role triggering combos, drawing aggro, and stripping shields with a Reegar. He would actually Charge into Turrets and melee-bubble to block their fire while someone else cleaned them up, and I think he even saved my other teammates with a Medigel Transmitter when they all went down during the Wave 10 escort. :D

I usually scoff when people talk about playing a support role, but damn.

Rare Gear. If the user goes down, when he uses a medigel it'll also revive anyone else within range (30m at rank V).

How do you stop a certain person's posts from appearing on your screen? Someone who believes a Volus Vanguard can be useful AND posts a compliment on Gamefaqs is obviously someone who should be ignored forever!

I've had a Volus Vanguard top 100k in the same match I was in. However, it didn't change my mind on them in the least.

I still think they're pests.

Yeah, me. I was awesome and it was on Dagger, one of the worst maps for Voluseses. And it was your host.

Well this was a rarity and I'm personally still pretty underwhelmed by the Volus characters, but it was very refreshing seeing someone play a more obscure class very well in a team capacity.

A great player can make any class good regardless of how ‘bad’ that class is relative to others. But I agree… nice to see a compliment.

Agree on both points. As a support player enthusiast compliments are always welcome to those who sacrifice some glory for the team. But yes, any class in the right hands, specd out right, can be a great character.
