to be fair, things don't seem to change from pts to live. I'm thinking of something as rudimentary as the pvp gear for bh/trooper getting screwed up between eliminator & medic/combat tech. I mean...really....if you don't fix obvious bugs that are obvious....well...obviously the pts isn't much use then, is it?

When it comes to PvP, your best possible attitude would be one of skepticism and indifference. If you show signs that you care too much about balance, bioware will find a way to disappoint you. Look at the last patch, everybody already knew that after the release of 1.7, thursday, friday and saturday should be days of expecting maintenance. And we were right.

Although there is still a chance for expansion patch notes to put a big smile on my face if they give sniper passive stealth detection They can give melee ability to reflect my ambushes back at me, but if will be able to pull the annoying bastards out of stealth, i'll call it a day.

Noted. I still don't know why that one was allowed to go live but this datamined information is not even on the PTS and that's the point I am trying to make.

Yeah snipers could use an ability to negate the only class that is their real counter

it's only useful while standing in cover. You will still be able to pick snipers trying to relocate.
Besides with a marauder being able to reflect my 5k ambush back at me, all bets are off about which class counter which one. The actuall match-ups will be a thing of the past after the expansion.

The forum should actually hide completely any trace of the ignored poster, you never know, i may accidentally reveal one of his posts, or somebody might quote him.

Ohh! and I should be able to stealth at anytime with no cooldown and stealth should remove dots...yeah.

We need this to counter the terrifying commandos and thier grav rounds. They killed me once.

I miss the old Troopers/Commandos that were advertised even as the "Oh $%@^ a Trooper! We're screwed!!!" class.
1.2 for about 3 days...
My Demo rounds were hitting for 7.5 to 8k and my Bolts for 6 to 7

Then Bioware realized their mistake and nerfed us - but leaving Smashers with 7.5k AE damage...
Makes total sense...
