All melee classes should have a quick way to get in range of a target; warriors have charge, assassins have their force speed thing... But yea.. operatives don't have anything -_-
1.7 apparently is adding 2 gap closing abilities for scoundrels which should help out.

They definitely do not need a buff. There are many server records with Ops in the top 5 to prove that.

Operative is capable of doing nice damage even in warzones that arent ranked, civil war is good for damage, with airstrikes and such, been getting 450k+ dmg a lot recently:

Operative has a very specific technique to it when trying to go for high damage numbers, but it really isn't primarily designed for that, you've got plenty of utility for 1v1, as it is basically in its truest function for duels, go solo cap nodes, if u wanna dps like a pro just sit and throw airstrike down/grenades lol, operative is balanced as it is now.

The major problem is not the damage itself. You burn through all of your energy way to fast, the resources just aren't made for zerging like on other ac's. Healers for example only have to survive the initial burst attempt to outlast the damage done by a scrapper.

Good joke, no one is asking for the buff to be a buff to burst damage, that would be inane. What we would like is either a better system of energy management or better sustained damage. Especially if some of the datamined changes are true, ops will fall pretty far behind in dps (for scrapper/concealment)

If you really think that Scrapper/Concealment is OP at the moment, then you must either really suck or have crappy gear. and I wonder what you must think of the bubblestun and smash specs.

Sadly its these types of uninformed generalized statements that BW seems to pay attention to more.
