Sounds fun, and I really like to try it maybe first in minigame.
I'm afraid though soldier classes will be hard to take down with current balance. None of the other classes are strong against soldiers, it's the casters role. Being a ranger, barb or sin wont be much fun.
its all about the tactic vrs soldiers get them alone and they will go down very fast with a barb and a ranger to keep them busy in a minigame.
i fully support this idea Aell and " skeff just let me know when your looking to do it and ill try and come along and see if i can bring any of our guys if you dont have the balance your looking for from melee only classes.
