Let me just put a reminder that you can still submit a question you think is a major concern for the class. I was expecting a big load as far as question submission goes and did not think people would be voting (on the few PVE questions we have) already >_<. With that said if anyone changes their minds (after some discussion in this thread, which i higly recommend!) then let me know and i can change your vote.

updated votes.

Did they intend for our roll to have such an impact on the class? With the roll we have the ability to avoid mechanics in fights(doom in DG) and in one particular spec is the key damaging move at this time. Are you guys planning on letting us keep the roll as it is or will we be seeing a nerf? If roll does get changed will anything be added to compensate for it?

Definitely should be reworded but pretty much our roll is really powerful at the moment and I would personally like to know if they plan on doing anything with it

New question is up on the spreadsheet. It's been talked about briefly as well in the PVP section by islander and escarli beginning in page 2.

Sorry for being so late, but I want to suggest a question that extends the 'Lethality-question'. It goes as follows:

How do you see the following specs compared to each other in terms of viability, strengths/weaknesses in high end content (HM, NiM Ops): MM, Engineering, Lethality, Engineering-Lethality hybrid?

Like this we would also hear about the other trees which I, personally, would like (especially since this could give us insight about their plans concerning the roll).



For PvP: row 8 of the PVP questions is very nice (would be a good question for PvE as well, for another iteration maybe)

Third question: Yeah, the question, whether the roll will be essential to avoid boss mechanics is an important one. The timing is so close.

3 answers hidden in one question. Is this even possible (eric? ). I'm down for this one if everyone is lol What does everybody think?

So i take it your vote is PVP 8 and (3rd Q) PVE 4?

We started a few days early but here is an official message to the Class Representatives from eric.

Quote:
As you compile your top 3 keep in mind that the goal is provide commentary and specifically questions to the development team which you wish have them address. Try to phrase things in the way of questions that we can answer.

Bad example: You guys are aware that we suck in PvP right?

Good example: We feel that in general our class lacks some utility and cc in comparison to other classes in Warzones. As an example (your reasoning), do you guys feel we are in a good place here? Do you also feel this is an issue?

Ok can we talk actual "other" questions. You know issues that don't have to deal at all with PvE or PvP.

Customization Character/Companion looks are pretty important to me. We've seen adding of customizations for C2-N2 and 2VR8, but how about some love for a droid companion with currently no customization options. I of course speak of everyone favorite droid out to kill us, SCORPIO.

-More to come-

Or how about this. It's been brought up a few times but never addressed in any fashion. The tech classes in general don't feel the presence of their color crystal as much as force users, and the suggestions a few brought up for snipers was the ability to change the color of our portable cover screen based on our color crystal. Do you think it would be possible to implement something to this effect?

We've seen plenty of cartel market sabers with some nifty affects, especially the introduction of the color crystal affecting other features besides the saber color (looking at you Saber staff with a color changing center crystal. I would like to see more of this on sniper rifles (and other blasters), because power crystals aren't as visually stimulating on blasters as they are on light sabers. Would it be possible to add more Sniper Rifles with effects on them that respect the Color Crystal, be it Laser Sights, displays, etc. ?
