I have played a Shadow since launch, recently made an Assassin and also a Scoundrel. My Scoundrel is still in the lowbie bracket but from where I am and from fighting Scrappers in the 50's bracket I would really support a buff to the spec.
Although for the topic, as somebody mentioned yes if stunned on the ground you still appear there. Happens to me all of the time.
yeah, in all seriousness, a buff to survivability and less reliance on stealth attacks/stunlocking would make the operative class a lot more appealing for pve and pvp and I would think would get most people to stop qqing about wanting nerfs. The survivability buffs to deception assassin were pretty decent, something similar like that for operatives would be nice.
