Uh, no. It's because in Huttball, good players know it isn't about killing the enemy. A good Huttball team can virtually ignore a Merc standing on the upper levels. The Merc doesn't have enough firepower to dps down a tank carrying the ball, can't yank him into a fire pit, and can't push him off a distant ramp. And since the Merc doesn't even have enough firepower to dps down a sprinter going a head of the ball carrier, the Merc is irrelevant. Nowadays the Merc can't even stun an enemy crossing a distant firepit. The Merc is useless so he gets the ultimate insult from the enemy team - he is ignored.
You went hugged enough as a child were you.
Mercs wont be the best players on the team, but we can do our best to make good out of a bad situation. And i dont know about you but my Merc can take down a ballhandler so you just arnt making the best out of your class.
