Yo, moderator boy, when you ask pvp senior dev whateverisname (since they're too busy partying instead of reading their own game forums), tell him that, and also tell him 1.4 merc/commando changes sucked donkey balls.
yep, im in the same situation.

when f2p hits i will be spending all my cartel coins on XP boosts, and will be trying to power level a powertech through warzones. at least i wont have to really grind all the gear again, as i can transfer it through legacy gear

bummer lol

ive actually been trying out the heal spec, using my Eliminator set. once i get my powertech to 50, i will probably get a BM combat medic set for my merc so that it is still semi useful

trust me, we all know how you feel. with the upcoming release of the new warzones, i feel like there is a greater chance for some PvP changes to make it into the game. hopefully Merc/Mando gets some much needed love

I have my VG with 8 piece WH now. Tactics spec. I like it, but honestly, I still perform better on my Commando than the VG. I think it's the whole melee aspect that I'm not really digging. My VG does take quite a beating before he dies tho. The survivability of Tactics is amazing. I rolled a sniper recently because, even with the extra survivability, I still dislike melee. Sniper is a pretty hard class to learn tho. Gotta find this one Imp on my server who is King of Snipers so I can ask for help.

Hopefully this will all be short lived and in 1.6 they will fix most of the issues with Commandos. I just have this feeling that it will become a bit OP.

From the sounds of it it doesn't look like we are going to get anything OP...just an escape mechanism. BS imo.
