Open your eyes, look around and tell me how many DPS ops you see in the swarms of assassins, juggernauts, marauders ...?
I play Lethality from game start, because i like the mechanics, but even if i work my a** out, i cant pull same numbers like other DPS classes. Ergo, i hurt my team. Do you see the logic?
If i go to melee range, i'm destroyed by AoE lolsmashers and i wont receive heals. Why? Because it's better to heal marauder than me. I'm focused. Why? Because at melee, i'm easily destroyed by true melle classes ... dispatched like weak mob - first.
Believe me, after almost year playing Lethality i know my chores and yet i do NOT benefice my team, like e.g. playing Juggernaut.
I actually started to play tank Juggernaut. In BM gear i pull 150-350 protection in PUGs easy (350 not that easy actually ). I have utilities that really benefit my team greatly. I make difference. As Lethality Op, i'm neither. Even if i do great, i'm still mediocre help to team. Even though having Warhero full modded stuff. Elite weapons. Still. not. good. enough.
Thats why i started this my personal statistics, to see if there are other colleagues Leth ops around. There is none.
Do you now say to all those ppl that stopped playing DPS Ops to L2P?
No. Anyone, who made it past 80 valor with DPS OP has to LOVE the spec.
Anyone like that will do (and does) greatly on other classes (like me on Jugg).

Enough is said, numbers wont lie. I'll make it to 100 WZs watched (already have another 11 to post and will do more through rest of week and mainly on weekend).
I play both Concealment Op and Medic Op. Depends on how many healers we have online. I am valor 95 on that guy, so I've spent plenty of time doing both in ranked warzones. Neither one is my "main spec" as I have great gear for either spec I'm using.

Numbers are stupid. Yes you aren't going to get a 6k smash. Get over it, I'm jealous too.. I'm going to agree with you that Operative could use some TLC. But marauder and sniper are both pure dps classes. They have no offheals offtaunts. I'll explain more why numbers are stupid at the end.

My two asks:
Fix energy consumption to put us inline with similarly geared classes.
Make AoE taunts/cc/slows/snares not affect us when in stealth

Now. On to the important point. LETHALITY IS NOT A PVP CLASS. It is based on AoE DoTs. No good teams use DoTs because they break mez's, which are some of the longest AoE CC''s in the game.

Numbers are STUPID because I can run around throwing corrosive grenade off every cooldown and have great damage numbers. (I've done it, I've played lethality plenty because it is the ultimate juggling act of all the ACs).

Your class has weaknesses and strengths. Some maps play to them, some don't. Some players play to them some don't. You are a stealthy stabby class, not a "RUN INTO EVERYTHING AND SMASH" class.
