i play a sorc..

i would kill for the snipers ranged burst...

u trade mobility for being immune to charges, grapple and interrupts

seeing as jugg/mara's, and pt's are running rampant and OP.. to me that sets snipers up pretty nice

my sorc cant take two steps in a wz without being charged instant smash/ravaged bya melee train of 6 warriors

no need to put a focus marker on me, they see the lightning coming from my fingers and they all know where the big crits are gonna land...

got vicious thrown at for 5k+ yesterday.. completely unecessary for the class with the burstiest ability int he game


i left for 6 months and came back and zero balance has occured.

So you left for 6 month, guess you have crappy gear, and now you are getting killed by players who have 6 month more playtime than you. Oh noez, how could that be.

This.

Good idea to put cover abilities on a permabar of it's own.

Necromancy all over again. 2 good stealthers can shutdown sniper populations effortlesly. On the other hand, 2-3 snipers can lockdown huttball middle for any melee. Swtor is a game of extremes. Unfortunately we just have to live with this crap. Its a team game, but i doubt i will ever feel the real team aspect similar to what .. Team fortress offers.

If you're playing a concealment Sniper you have a lot bigger problems than energy management.

one snare break for a non healing sorc...

tell me how that works vs even as little as 2 melee classes,
charge snare charge snare, ravage snare, force choke etc

to be a successful sorc you need a much higher skill set than these classes...

ill admit sorcs can have great mobility in a 1v1 situation but again most wz's are melee gravy trains and we can all agree the lag in wz's is deplorable... i often get charge by a jugg, he'll dissapear, and ill be smashed for 7k before he even re appears..

the current balance logic witht he sorc class doesnt make sense, the squishiest class with no powerful defensive cooldowns (as in long cooldwon) and light armor also has very mediocre dmg.. in fact sorc damage is easily behind a mara, jugg, pt, assasin, sniper, and our survivability lags behind all of them as well... this isnt balance

so snipers are fine, then counter warriors very well... they trade mobility for immunites and have great burst
