Merc Arsenal/Pyro (depends of the guild pve raids) here, rank valor 81, full WH with one Elite WH weapon atm.

Today's pvp: Voidstar, trying to cap door, one Guardian defending it, casting tracer missile, interrupted, I get force chocke, I remove it, in the meantime I get a smash, trying to cast another tracer, force push, saber throw+jumps at me, smash, I try to Jet Boost him, doesn't work, in despair I launch HM, RS and some rapid shots & then I die. The Guardian lad had 70% hp left.

Civil War: A Sentinel from far away, cast on him 3 tm, nice, HM launch, very nice, Rail Shot it's him, amazingly nice, hp to 50%, jumps at me, couple of shots at me, jet boost him, he vanish, repops a bit later, launch all his offensive skills on me, I stun him (I'm at 20-30% hp), TM+ Unload, he pops god mode button, I die, he walks away to another victim.

Hutball: nearly instant ganked by a scoundrel and later on by some shadow, then later there's a Vanguard that grabs me and basically instant kills me since my channeling attacks takes forever to be casted, I do my crappy damage with a rocket punch, RS, HM, some rapid shots, and then I die.

Even with the 3 Tracer Missile stacked on an ennemy doesn't do anything, armor penetration? armor debuff? it ain't worth **** in pvp.

Pyro is the only way to go in pvpas a merc dps, but if you go pyro, better use the optimal version: Vanguard/PT

Learn from my mistake if you are playing a freshly new merc/commando, unless you wanna be a healer, don't play this advanced class, it's a complete utter waste of time.
Have a 49 merc and could not care less about turning fifty...bad pvp dps, second tier pve dps or support heals as they even suck at that pvp or pve....there is no reason to play one.

Glad the guy above posted specific examples of what he's doing wrong.

Any time you're in melee range with a guardian or sentinel, you are SUPPOSED to lose. Why isn't this obvious? At anything > 5m, you can crush the melee classes at will and they can't even hurt you. And now you actually expect to stand toe to toe with a melee class, get smashed/carnaged AND still win? In what scenario then is a melee class suppose to kill you? When you're afk?

I can only beat a marauder by making sure that half his GCDs goto waste, because he can't hit me. For every two hits I get on him, he gets one on me. But as I said before, I'm assault, so I don't pretend to know gunnery well enough to give you specific advice. So, if you don't want to be a turret, change specs.

Thank you Henu, you complete lack of clues helps mercs a lot...
You're doing good scores against pugs/pve/non-mumble teams and you do top dps/kill blah blah blah? that's fine, great, amazing, whatever.

The day you post me a video or pics of you owning premades sentinels / vanguards in a Ranked Warzone will be the day where these forums will take you seriously, in the meantime spares us your small e-peen waving.

Come at the Red Eclipse buddy, we'll see how long you'll last.

This is the trouble with most people... you want more proof and when you get it you pick the **** out of it. in 1 of those SS im doing 850k DPS, look at the kill/death ratio. i can smash out 400 - 500k DPS with little deaths but its not good enough for you..

Yet not once to do i get a post saying, Great job man you've stuck it out in a tough class with out re-rolling to a PT, Sent's, guardains or what ever. Ive sat there in EVERY war zone on my merc and shown people how to do it. Yet its never good enough for a lot of you people.

If you want more proof from now on come to Dalborra server and ill show you inside a war zone.

On topic, yes DPS Commando/Merc is awful for PVP. No, the devs don't care and aren't going to change it for the better anytime soon.

Seems I can solo Jedi Player pretty well one on one when I couldn't before with out the interrupt so whats your reason again?

I don't keep a pocket healer by my side either, I like the challenge of the fight and I enjoy pugging it.

My goodness, this is pathetic, how the hell can we ask Bioware for a needed serious buff to our class when you have amateurs like this one basically misinforming the devs.

Oh, and for the record:

Looky here, ima on top, I must be awesum, mercs are fInE, I do top dps, lots of killz, only 1 small dead, mercs are fine lololol1111101, only most of the opponent team was recruit/pve geared.
I can post more of those for the e-peen contest if you want, want me also to those those where my team is owned by good premades teams of sentinels/vanguards also?

You don't have a clue of what you're talking about, oh, and again, thank you for misinforming the devs.
