But in the end... we've always learned a lot from playing you guys so appreciate the feedback.
synergy sometimes runs sifu on his shadow as a dps...That's the only other instance of a good guild using dps sin in rateds that I have personally seen on the bastion...A big issue is simply not having enough players that have the skill/gear to do so. Excluding myself, I would only really consider 3-5 other sins on the bastion being capable of putting out the numbers/being adaptive enough to be considered for a dps team slot

like with commandos/sorcs, most people simply don't run them because the general consensus is that they are underpowered...If teams try to innovate and break the meta...ignoring the established standard they will find that what they thought wasn't viable might not be so bad after all...

for example, the only class that I don't think has a viable dps spec for rateds is operatives. I believe everything else, from sorcs to assassins to even mercs have the tools necessary to be competitive.

Just something a bunch of carebears are doing. Learn to play with the change in meta or get the f*** out. Adapt and move forward.

Sometimes there's a sage dps aswell.
Thanks, I hope to see more posts like this (in addition to the interesting tangential discussions).
