They could get rid of that all together for all I care. Really; as far as imbalance goes in this game, this ones got to be near the bottom and as pointless as they come. Especially when Sniper is the only ranged class that really hangs with the melee ones in the game right now.
ok.... but I don't think it should be because the game auto-targets the attacking melee person and thats the only point I'm trying to make. Mages and hunters do just fine in that other game, sure some key turning bads get pwnt, but there are plenty who can move their character themselves.
