I had no idea about the Analyst kit, if I run it with my sci I'll definitely keep it in mind. The Geo kit is definitely the most powerful science kit, especially if you have a good team. I've also had teams that used the grenade satchel kit (not a very popular one) for the transformers, and both methods work really well. I'm glad you guys got through it.
However, this all being said...engineers are still kings of ground . At least in PvP, that is. Their shield buff makes them pretty much invincible, and if they're not killing you with their turrets and drones, they'll kill you by making all your weapons completely useless. I wonder if this will change at all when the ground combat revamp comes out?
