BW, do you ever plan on addressing DPS Mercs/Commandos PvP-wise?

the nerf to thermal det has basically cut their burst potential by 40%. pyro PTs wont be able to match the burst output of a melee DPS or a sniper. which means they will probably lose their RWZ spot

So now NO bounty hunter or trooper subclass is wanted.

Good thing they made buffs legacy wide so people can still get the health boost amirite?
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

Makes me glad that I cancelled my sub after 1.7. Now I'm just playing until the time runs out on it.

Glad I PVE mostly on my commando LOL

And with 2.0 I'll have a good chunk of time where I can just focus on that for awhile.

Not that I think we'll be fixed for PVP by then, but at least I'll get to play my commando more than twice a week for awhile.

go figure
It was probly them who started they thread to see how people would react to the change, when they saw the rage they followed their standard SOP (launch).

What I find funny is that functionally, all they did to TD/AP in PVE is move it's damage around a little bit hurting it's effectiveness as a burst tool. That last bit also makes it even LESS appealing in PVP.

They wanted synergy not a redesign, so even while they "listened" to that thread, they didn't really.

It's a lot like when we begged for a root, even if it was just attached to one of our knockbacks....so they took away our stockstrike knockback entirely and turned THAT into a root.

GG BW. You're like those genies in stories who go out of their way to interpret wishes in the most convoluted way possible so you can technically give people what they want without ever giving people what they want.

I think I had a nice poem addressed to them. Go find it and read it.
