Also, while I agree smash can do extreme damage in certain conditions to players with crappy gear, it is also an attack that is fairly easily evaded. It is predictable so you know when to use your defensive abilities to negate it. It also misses a fair amount of times if you are not caught in a charge -> smash -> push -> charge -> choke -> smash sequence (which is usually your own fault for allowing to happen, though sometimes cannot be prevented)
It's not so easy to evade anymore, the stacks both auto crit and singularity/shockwave now last 20 seconds, so you will get hit with the smash/sweep. The only way to evade it is if a shadow/assassin pops their resistance to tech/force right before they triggered the smash/sweep.
