Snipers execute is silly in how much damage it does and only way to dodge it is to los. While basically every ability in our belt is shutdown by ranged and melee interrupts, as well as stuns and knockbacks. Snipers don't have that issue.

No,I know where you are coming from. I've played one before. I've also played dps scoundrel, which is probably welcomed even less.

I know an Op that will shut down anyone. So dont go and try saying that Ops are underpowered.

Kudus to him, but its still not a good spec, shadow is better in every way. It's not welcome in ranked, I didn't say it wasn't a PUG stomper. It can stomp baddies all day.

You wont see me disagreeing there. but shades and sins are the most balanced class in the game.

Maybe make it consume tracer lock stacks, or perhaps the unload proc.

That would be nice.

Good luck. I'm getting BF4 this year so i can have some fun until Camelot Unchained a
game i have backed that comes out 2015.Gona play SWTOR a few more month to see whats
going on just to be up to date, but sadly i see little future for PvP in this game.Instanced WZ is old alredy
and they dont care about open world pvp what so ever Well gonna play my new commando and see
how the class is now. Deleted my first warhero commando because the class was crap for 1 year lol.
Doesnt matter.Atleast there is hope in Blizzard and Titan(what ever that is)
