Hey folks!

I have gone ahead and stickied both this thread and your thread for PvP Sniper questions to help make sure no one misses them. This will be on the dev tracker now as well, obviously.

Good work so far, looking forward to the top 3. I am really loving some of the questions!

Question revision:

Many snipers or tech uses in general don't feel as much presence of their color crystal as much as our force counter parts, would it be possible to add either add functionality to our potable cover screens to color according to our crystal (been brought up before) or add more sniper rifles to the game with visual effects that change based on color crystal?

I don't know what server you are on, but I'll put up some spam tonight on Pot5 to check this thread and vote. Since the deadline is fast approaching.

Edit: also can you change my other vote to my power crystal aesthetics question.

I am on The Bastion. Thanks for the help! I don't know a lot of forum going snipers on my server. Our server forums is mostly PVPers and yeah i dont think they come out here (on the sniper forums).

I vote for PVP 8 and the question I suggested.

PVE 4 and PVP 11 seem quite similar to me. I like the first line of PVP 11 and it covers more than just operations, so my third vote goes to PVP 11.


On the topic of how to ask questions: I think it is helpful not to think about questions, but rather about topics one would like to have more information about.
Gather all theses topics and check, where the important topics lie. Then formulate a question that asks 'give us more information about this topic and related aspects'.
Usually some of the 'hot topics' are related (potential imbalances of different specs like scattered bombs and lethality). So you can cover them all by asking about the whole heap they build.


Thinking ahead to the next iteration of the CR thing: I just noticed that there are two threads, one for PVE, one for PVP.
It might be easier to gather questions and updating votes by having only one thread. Or maybe it's just me being lazy to post in two different threads.
Just some food for thought for the next iteration of the whole story.


Completely off topic, but now I'm thinking about it: The CR idea allows us to get information from the combat team. It doesn't provide that much feedback to the devs. Maybe we could necro the old class feedback thread (operatives did it already) since this would allow us to give much more feedback than one can take out of 3 questions. I intend to do so, once my two lowies are 55, but that still takes a lot of time.

I just found this post

http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...97#post6607497

It seems like we can be a little more specific about concerns we have. It might be a good idea to add our main concern to every question we ask.

For example: PVP 11 (question about the roll) Ask the question and add: We worry that snipers have to rely on timing covered escape perfectly to avoid incoming attacks in order to be competitive in operations and to some extent ranked warzones and arenas.

I don't know if it's necessary to do this or whether the combat team recognizes what our concerns are. What do you guys think?

For PT DPS for example, it would be comforting for them to hear (once and for all) how BW plans to address the DPS imbalance between their hybrid spec and full AP / full pyro.

You don't need to post on both threads. You can post

pve 1
pvp 2
pvp 3

on either threads and ill update the spreadsheet accordingly

I love the jobs the Reps are doing for all classes and I really like the way this is turning out. Hopefully, BW continues to support this kind of feedback!

I'm not sure if the numbers correlate to excel numbers or the question's position (hence a PvP 3 would be the first PvP question)

Either way my issue is with Laze Target and Illegal Mods, I believe this is PvP 3.
Working as inteded? Outdated? Change not needed?

I'm sure you can formulate a question out of it =D
