Yea there's pretty much a 0.0% chance for any class balancing before 1.7 when 5 new levels are added.

Could you think of a better way to waste resources than to update the classes a few months before you add 5 new levels and a bunch of new abilities?

There's no way the new stuff will be balanced, but thats good for Mercs. We have nothing to lose. It might just turn out that we get the most love with some sick level 55 abilities, even if by accident.

Not 1.7 sir...Makeb, the expansion. "Spring of 2013", not 1.7.

I still think they'd be wise to test a few things on our class prior to Makeb. See what works and what doesn't.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

I'm going to assume Makeb will be 2.0, which I'm guessing will hit around May/June.

Ok you're referring to a "spec", not the class.

Lastly, I have no desire to sift through countless patch notes in search of the one thing you're referring to, so link?

Thanks.

If they were smart Makeb would launch on May the 4th.


Anyway I already figured all other ACs would get an amazing new ability and we'd get an ability that makes the first hit of Hammer Shot a critical.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

i have no desire to justify, or provide any further evidence.

i've had a sniper since launch, it's been imporved since.

i've had a Merc since launch, it's only declined since.
