asking to be able to attack w/out LoS at all? ie through a wall? LOL
There's already an ability that does that, on engineering/sabotage.

You can't make up stuff like that.

Have the 2 piece add an effective root to a ranged attack. Then have the 4 piece lower the cooldown of the shield to 60 seconds and make it so you are immune to all controlling effects when in use.
Nice idea but when pyro PT/assault VG gonna get this - almost all time on shield: CD - 60 s +Energy Rebounder/Reflexive Shield. He already has 2 instant stuns, slow and Grapple/Harpoon. With root ability there will be no escape.

Source?

I mean you're right they could. Why do you think they will? Just curious.

I'd much prefer a root attached to the knockback than have it cleanse movement impairing effects, but that's me.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

I could possibly see them adding in new set bonuses when the expansion comes out.

However, how many merc/commando players are going to hang around for that if in the up coming patches our issues, and other pvp issues in general, are not addressed by the devs?

Bump for Justice!

that is different from firing a missile that tracks around walls.

the sniper engi tree has EMP discharge, which detonates something that was already applied to the target

Based on Tech Override, a lack of combat rez at launch and a lack of an interrupt for over half a year, I wouldn't hold my breath for that. It's going to suck. Everyone else will get something amazing though.

friendly wager?

i'm going with they will attempt to placate to the long time suffering of the Mercenary class by giving them something quite overpowered.

only to be blown up in the forums and nerfed in an emergency patch.

as far as the wager...could be gentlemen's bet...something of value (don't think u are on the Garbinger...get it..garbage, oh, HO...whew!)

or something humiliating...like q'ing for RWZ's and SS'ing 10 matches to post here.

are you up for it? :P

Gentleman's Wager? I bet you 1 credit sir it either sucks out loud or gets nerfed within 1 patch.

Though your scenario doesn't seem unlikely, we'll see if they can stick to their guns if it happens.
