I personally don't mind Officer Aim, regiments should be able to quickly transfer command during matches and it encourages regiment leaders to develop confident members. As such, none of the events 89e participates in penalize for Officer Aim.
That being said, Officers do need a buff, even if just for the sake of pub games. They are the worst class in the game.
Hopefully Dreas' work on the melee system will help with your concerns, however in my experience a good player with a bayonet encounters fewer of these "trash moments."
