I've noticed that after I die in a round, when I'm revived I'll get the assists I earned while I was dead. Sometimes I get several.

Is there any time limit after which I lose "assist" status, or if I deal 50 XP's worth of damage to a target, will I ALWAYS get that XP once the target dies?

My initial guess is "yes" but I'm not sure how to prove it. – Steve V. Mar 23 '12 at 21:24
@SteveV. if there is it's very long, I've gotten assists after being dead will over a minute – Ben Brocka Mar 23 '12 at 21:26

No, there is no time limit. Merely using a power or dealing damage to an enemy will grant you an assist, no matter how long it has been.
