With a better viewpoint a player can plan his attack tactics and look out for incoming opponents and flank better either to safety or to kick the enemies ass.

And as we all know even a fraction of a second matters while dealing with an enemy, you may wind up dead quick if you lose it. There have been reports when the players have been taken down and they never saw it coming.
The PC players do have the hardware advantage too.
