And this is something important, that is often overlooked. Assassin is a kit that was not meant to be picking aggressive fights with Knights & Brutes. 9 out of 10 times, an equally skilled assassin and knight should result in the assassin dying. It's a squishy kit, meant as a support to heavies. As Line mentioned, it offers an advantage over other assassins, rangers and mages, and is countered by heavies. Counters are a natural part of any game, such as Clans. It is unfortunate that it took so many seasons for the kit to be balanced to a point where it's being played properly, however "it eez what it eez." Regards, Isaac.
