CO OP faction select and Level Reset

I think it would be a good idea to be able to choose if you want to be security or insurgent on co op. Also, considering since multiple cosmetic items have been removed from the game and we've spent points on them it might be a good idea to reset player levels on game release or determine a good way to grant some refund points. Not a huge deal but slightly annoying.

Ummm. I thought everybody knew that they were gonna wipe all points and remove all unlocked cosmetics at release? How'd you not know this?
