The new 70% snare on full auto and immobilize on stock strike make gunnery just as good if not better than assault in pvp after assault got nerfed.
People need to get out of this mindset that assault is better no matter what.
This is surprising, you are actually the first guy who has mentioned that its actually good that we lost our knockback on rocketpunch.
Melee based root on a stationary caster is not actually something i call a good ability. The same dev team made warhammer online and they had a class in that game called the magus, a ranged spellcaster with a melee based root and a aoe knockback....it was considered a free kill for just about anyone with a hint of skills in that game aswell.
But if this junk works for you, then im stunned...and ofc happy for you. Still stunned though
