Note the length of the fights, many people upload failed attempts where their burst DPS was way higher than anything they can sustain, and therefore skew the results. It's unfortunate that the site doesn't show kill parses only. Also look at 8HM and 16HM only, most top players don't run SM.

And the reason why PT/VG is over performing and needs a nerf is because it does equal DPS to sniper and mara, which are pure DPS classes. BW has already expressed that pure DPS classes should be ~5% ahead of the rest. Now we all know that the gap between highest and lowest DPS class in game is definitely more than 5%, but it doesn't change the fact that PT/VG is over performing even if you only compare it to Sniper and Mara.

Again, this is all coming from PVE standpoint and DPS potential behind classes. PVP we've already discussed and agreed on what's holding Mercs back.
maybe i'm confused, i don't think i am, since the creator of torparse answered this question in a direct response to me... but, there IS a separate category for kills and deaths. there is no skewing. i didn't understand how to read it at first either...but, i asked questions instead of accusations.

i'd bet anything i'm top 5% WW Merc...i've played VG for less than a month (nearly mirrored to Merc/Pyro and already have a few #1 parses, and MANY top 61's) i just choose not to play Arsenal spec. i do not care for it.

the reason PT/VG is overperforming is their ability to DPS NON-STOP, while moving.

look at my parses...look at the disgusting consistantcy. nothing stops me from producing the maximum DPS, minus CC. <---note the Terror fight...1st time i have EVER seen the mob. and i was grabbin adds.

that's the issue (casting), in both PvP and PvE, imo. <----imo. as someone who has played both, quite well.

and to nerf something because it is actually working is just insanity.

*EDIT* i've provided a substantial amount of evidence to prove this.
