If you're concerned your merc or commando is going to be a deadweight in pvp, respec to bodyguard/combat medic, your team will love you more. ALSO, pyro/assault spec is quite viable in pvp, of course you're most probably not going to top damage (which most uneducated pvp'ers believe pvp is all about ) but as a merc/commando, you're a turret, if you can't shoot things 1v1 then stop shooting them and become a full time healer-peeler. Which in turn will make your team love you long time.

How do you deal with the 97 stuns/movement slowing moves they constantly spam?
Like I said before, I do struggle against equally skilled players and above because when comparing a Mercenary to a Melee class, the melee class will win.

I think for me as a player I have played this class so much that I have basically learned the In's/Out's of it and timing is the key. I can recognize poor players in a match and adrenals are key that most don't use plus your interrupt is a good tool for channeled abilities. They can buy you time to send off a quick heal or two and finish who ever off.

I am not proclaiming to be the best because ever match I play is something new I learn or improve on. I think what is nice about players that stick to one class can sometime pull off amazing things because of practice.

Things that I have learned that I believe is important to matches.

1) Adrenals
2) LOS (Line of Sight)
3) Interrupt/Stuns
4) Understand what stats you need for your spec to get full DPS output
5) Key to all things is learn timing and try to anticipate what the other class is going to do next and to be honest most players are predictable, especially melee.

I still agree with alot of what is in this thread. Arsenal in PvP is asking to get butchered, and pyro is ok at best. What is the point of playing a merc right now when there are better PvP ACs that fulfill the same roles?

I read it your post and understood it. Learn to manage your ammo better. It hasn't been difficult since 1.3, at least in gunnery spec. Besides I'm spotted and singled out long before I begin to have ammo issues. Reserve Powercell, Recharge Cells, and Cell Charger with a the odd Hammer Shot if you're having issues works wonders. Also consider using the PVE set bonuses if you're going to be using gunnery/arsenal.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

Agreed. I made a thread in the general forums. Bump it up, perhaps BW will finally take notice and do something. This thread is filled with good ideas for the class.

Lol cute tactic. Ask everyone who doesn't agree with you to stop posting. Let me think about that...










...NO THANKS GUY!!!

Ever seen a merc do 1 million damage in a regular length WZ? Guss what. They still wouldn't even if they could free-cast the entire time. Merc DPS needs an upgrade ESPECIALLY burst.
