this is true, but i sense you may be misunderstanding my point of my message. Or it could just be me misreading things
Your message was that we must be super good PVPers if we're sticking with it. Your justification for this was decent scoreboard numbers.
My point was that it doesn't really tell the story you wish it did. Gear up another class and go prove how good you are.
Commandos and mercs that stick with it gain a lot of knowledge of how to exploit the environment and stick to the edge of a big furball. Not quite the same as exploiting tools actually given to a class. You gotta actually learn to use all that utility you can get on other classes. Slightly different toolset.
That being said, level up a sniper and yeah I think you'd kill it pretty hard.
