Not so much in pvp, its NOTHING like what the description says, it pains my soul to play, It makes me want to play carebear world of adventure etc you have heard it all before

I strongly suggest fixing BH mercs for f2p but hey never mind now playing a 50 jugg and loving it!

TL;DR: BH mercs are worth QQ'ing over, yet not worth playing much

/commence QQ'ing over my QQ'ing

Yeah, here's hoping they'll do something about the lack of mobility.

While I don't feel uber gimped, I definitely feel sub-par to other classes. The lack of a true escape ability is really noticeable, especially since we can't hold our own in a 1v1 like the Powertech can. We have heavy armor and a shield CD, but we can't hard-cast anything unless we've already managed to get up a full stack of Power Barrier (assuming we're going Arsenal in the first place).

If Powertechs weren't lacking missiles, I'd roll one instead of my Merc. I love it in PvE with all the stuff available to throw around, but in PvP it's a game of "I hope that guy doesn't spot me. I hope that guy doesn't spot me. I hope that g-- argh!" /Shadow'd.
If only I'd hit spacebar more often...
