Any chance of Powertechs/Vanguards receiving a PvP rebalancing pass in this patch? Pretty much all I'd like to see is the devs take notice of the fact that we're definitely behind every other class in burst-potential and survivability while DPS'ing.
I have one of every class and play them all. I give up on this class signature thing.

I gotta say, this was the first thing I looked for in the patch notes as well. Quite a while since there's been ANY class balancing overall now, so it seems like they are satisfied with it as is. Couldn't we have been nerfed the same way lolsmash was "nerfed", IE other stuff was buffed to make up for the nerfs. But noooo, that'd make sense.

Well since class balances are done by the same person as PVP( key there is the singular "person"), i would guess he is hard at work on 2.4 and cant devote time to changing things until then.

I really don't get why there is one guy there... (And he has to be playing healer ops, sniper, assassin and lolsmash...)

I gather that dev's assassin is purely his stunlocking pvp toon and he never sets foot into pve with it.
Once you're in the hole, what's a few more feet?

The funny thing about that "one guy" is that he noted that he plays the Sniper and Assassin. Also for a good laugh look at the post then he tries to explain why he wanted to do CC breaker CD reset on death. He says stupid stuff like how when it lights up when your CC'ed it lures you into using it!!!! Man you could not have chosen a worse person to do class balancing if that is his mind set. COME ON BW get your **** together.

Same here (along with some other classes) and was utterly disappointed, especially that it is already known that the new 2 FPs and the dailies area is content that was developed over a year and half ago. I was expecting to see that the devs are using some of my sub money in balancing the game or improving its quality (so I heard but never seen). Apparently not.

Vanguard/Powertech was the Fotm class for about a Year, and now it is just fine (maybe they nerfed it a little too much). Overall I think balance is quite good and never was better.

Can a vanguard/powertech even get a 6k crit? I never had on my vanguard so far and that pretty does seem a bit unfair that the vanguard/powertech cannot get that 6k crit medal in pvp.

Think most of FOTM(year) PT/Vanguards moved to assassins/shadows... amount of bads running around out of stealth, guarding out of stealth, running no accuracy gear in L55 pvp (oh thanks double exp) is just not funny anymore...
rest moved to smash spec, but probably didn't notice that force statis/force choke doesnt build shockwave any more...
