Buff Operatives

I would love if Operative concealment spec got a buff. I don't even play the spec, but I think the game is better where every class has some kind of role in pvp and not just as a healer. Sure, they can do good damage in a regular warzones, but most ranked teams won't take dps operatives because they don't bring anything unique or special to the team.
My suggestion is to make them the counter to hybrid healing sorcs that have a stun bubble by giving operatives and scoundrels 3 seconds of CC immunity after 'Hidden Strike' or 'Shoot First'. That would give them the ability to actually have some burst and sustain some damage before dying.
What do you think??

What! How dare you suggest a buff to Operatives?! This is madness!







I'm just yanking your chain. Personally, I would like to play lethality on my lowbie, but Tactical Advantage is hard to come by.

As it is, vengeance juggs and vigilance guardians already have a similar ability which they can use even more frequently.

Yeah... I don't see many dps operatives anymore, but the ones that I do faceroll anyone in 1v1 combat. As a maruader, in optimized WH I might add, if one comes up behind me there is barely anything I can do against it. Especially if they have the stun break ready. If I have my AOE stun up I might be able to escape etc, but other wise im stunlocked the entire time before I die.
If we were to apply your suggestion to other classes, marauders should get a CC immunity for 3 seconds after a force leap. Which we all know would be insanely overpowered.

For rwz I am afraid that you cannot fix things with a mere buff or even single class overhaul. Its a big can of worms here. I could say that snipers are nit very popular in rwz either.

For normal wz concealment is very decent. It fulfills its role perfectly. The speed buff was a very nice addition. Its still one of the best class to defend and ninja caps. I really enjoy beating stealth asassins at their own game. Its amazing.

Operatives definitely dont need a buff they are still doing insane damage already. A buff is not needed.
The force includes marbles, but i think you have a few rocks mixed in![COLOR=http://sigs.enjin.com/sig-swtor/7cf637d701454992.png"Plum"][/COLOR] <a href="http://www.enjin.com/" alt="swtor guild hosting"><img src="http://sigs.enjin.com/sig-swtor/7cf637d701454992.png"></a>
