Grav Round still applies the Grav Vortex debuff but no longer causes damage and the sound effect is changed to a 3 year old girl screaming "Tickle Attack!!!"

I'm going to put my optimistic happy hat on and hope, REALLY hope that the promised changes are good.

The dev comment that they're testing it amongst themselves doesn't exactly inspire me with confidence, but ... HAPPY HAT.

Also, thanks Domatron! I can't for the life of me figure out who you are on Shadowlands though

When we care for others our own strength to live increases. When we help people expand their state of life, our lives also expand. Actions to benefit others are not separate from actions to benefit oneself.

Yeah and sweeping blasters against a single target. I know, promotional video, don't read too much into it, but since then, any 'class balance is basically okay' type comment from BW has had me wondering which herpderpers have been testing internally recently.

HAPPY HAT! Stop dragging me down

I think your happy hat is a bit tight.

Unless they actually do something ground breaking and give commandos/mercs a way to get their damage out consistently under pressure I'm fairly certain any changes will just be the scraps from the table that they did not want to give to any other ranged class.
