Marauder:
now has free force scream in smash, previously only for juggs
now has less health used undying rage
now only needs 3 stacks to get a full 2x damage smash crit

and the nerf:
now gets +15% crit damage to everything instead of +30% crit damage to just smash
force choke no longer adds stacks of shockwave

You missed one. "Stasis no longer builds stacks" should be in the nerf column.
PvP Gear Viability? Read this first.

Rage was a AOE tree and that's it. Everyone screamed nerf nerf. They nerfed the damage on smash.
They gave these people a chance in fighting by increasing crit. So what ?

You should also reword the crit mutiplier statement. 30% was on all Force attacks. Scream is a powerful force attack, but the funny part is, they made both AC's more deadly now, and the "Smash" nerf amounts to little when you are still hitting people for around 4-5k... Easily still one of the best burst attacks in the game, AOE or not. and now MS/RAV VS/SLA get a buff?

We are being seriousinged.....

They always had this.
And -25% hp used when activating gbtf doesn't make any sense, as you are still only using it when having low hp.

And don't forget they get a 9% damage buff on all attacks for 6 seconds after using smash.
What we don't understand, we can make mean anything.

You also forgot that after the first Sweep/Smash they have a more or less permanent 9% damage increase (lasts 18 seconds, but sweep is on a 15s cooldown which you can lower with slash which you should be slashing).
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

I think that should change. Give I'd a way to make it back with choke or stasis. At least that can be interrupted.

Just my thoughts. And I play a sentinel.
