Admittedly, they can be very hard to catch when used correctly to hug corners, but a lot of that "escapability" falls aside when attacked by multiple melee enemies, at which point they just aren't quite tough enough to sustain without further escapes. We have plans for the future that should give Mercenaries and Commandos better escapes in PvP.
Thats just sweet! You intend to INCREASE survivability to a DPS prof? So you dont think the DPS classes got enough power already? Especially compared to Tanks?

I sure think you've got to have bigger problems than increasing DPS classes survivability...

Like I said should of had it nearly a year ago but ive been taking breaks, due to the failism that called pvp
i'm a fool, honestly.

i have not been able to PvP since the server merges. the latentcy from TN to The Garbinger is NEVER <100ms, in warzones 300-3000ms consistantly. prior to FTP/merges, i PvP'd daily...even on my Merc, without issue.

i, along with my fellow Mercs and commandos, have been hindered for entirely too long, and i don't understand the complete lack of acknowledgement by BW/EA, or their inability to directly address and fix it.

well, i do...FTP = $$$. CC = $$$.

they have their priorities. and class balance, OWPvP, RWZs, and replayable content (other than class stories) are not it. it's $$$.

i'm a fool. a fool to continue to pay for a piss-poor product.

Really? Don't think i've ever seen an operative break 500-600k.

Wait, that was a joke, wasn't it? Lol, nm.

(Those are just peeps from my server. I know there are bigger).

Now. Why exactly would people choose to bring along a merc/mando only capable of 800k? Our amazing utility? Our mobility?
Awesome reply!!! So true too. Anyone can do well in a full round of Voidstar with all of the AOE.

Bump for Justice. I'm not gonna stop doing this till the class gets fixed and my main gets used for something other than raids two nights a week.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

You guys better get on their Twitter daily tor crap. They are asking which AC you like better for trooper. Commando or Vanguard. Might want to make a comment that isn't a "duh... I like da big gun! derp"

Hell no. I'm a subscriber. There's no reason Bioware should value every twits feedback over mine. Gathering feedback on social sites drives me crazy - I feel like they give feedback from people who don't even play the game the same weight as mine.
