If you have such asymmetrical gameplay it is difficult to balance the game. Natural Selection was balanced for 6vs6 and basically everything beyond 8vs8 was a mess. If you want something akin Battlefield 3 you would need to redesign large aspects of the game and the classes.
Yeah that's the downside But just because nobody ever did it doesn't mean it can't be done. But I am not seeing a developer do this anytime soon. Maybe next console iteration will change the playing field.. one can never know..
