Hello fellow operatives.

Some of you may know me, most of you wont. I'm The Gosh Darn Snave and I've tried to be as vocal as possible other the last year or so about the continued poor treatment of this class (specifically concealment) and the PvP community in general.

I've always wanted to make an overly dramatic end game concealment video to try and show case the class whilst being called a noob by everyone on the forums but currently it's not looking like we're going to be in any arena compositions for a while and the removal of 8 man ranked was really the final nail in that coffin.

So that got me to thinking, it took a while, but I decided to make a different type of video, the regstar call to arms.

We once roamed the battlefields as the silent killers, we were feared, loved, loathed, we stun locked keyboards and made people un sub. Those are our glory days, that is our heritage!

Then of course we got nerfed into the dust but let us not dwell on that during this glorious moment!

If you think concealment is the most fun spec in the game but decided to re roll a healer because they're more competitive (*COUGH* overpowered *COUGH*) then this is really for you. Let us unite and become the scourge of regular warzones where (as this video will hopefully show) the skill cap is a "little" lower.

This isn't a guide on how to play, this is me having fun for 10 minutes. Please make sure your tongue is firmly in your cheek before watching and I'd also recommend pre administering a pinch of salt. Oh and naturally make sure it's in HD

If the link is removed for whatever reason (some mild swearing) then go to youtube.com/snave1208 and it'll be the most recent one.

Many of you know me, many of you don't...

Many of you hate me, many of you well... n/m everyone hates me.... Especially George Zoeller. I was going to make a fairwell video to show everyone WHAT REAL concealments used to be like before they were healers;

So this is a tribute video to a class that has been abused, nerf'd, and ill-treated by both Bioware and the community.

I'm sorry if you take offense to the comments in this video; But I personally don't care. This is how real Concelaments/Scrappers used to play this game in PVP.

I used to get 15 hate tells a day; I quit playing IA back in 1.3 which was the final nail in the coffin for me. Incidently I have not nor will I play this class ever again, until things change;

The ONLY ef'ing reason I resubbed was for the space content Dec 3rd 2013; Bioware is finally doing what I told them to do BEFORE the game was ever launched. They failed to listen to me coming from 5+ years of space PVP in SWG (A REAL star wars game). And yes, I was one of the top 5 space pvp'ers in that game. The "entire" game. across many servers; I was known as Grmipala for those that know me, and for those that despize me; But I used to server transfer constantly to challenge the top space PVP'ers in the game... I was sorely disappointed in the last year of the game, because anyone who had any skill had already quit. Yes I do miss that game, even my most notorious enemy "Corvalis" despite how much hate I had for this person, and him for me... I still appreciate his determination to keep flying when all the other veterans gave up on the game save a very few that stuck it out till shutdown.

My name is Haymaker (the original Haymaker from beta not the tool who stole my name after server mergers); and yes, on my server at this time; I was THE #1 Concealment Operative on Darth Bandon and anyone who knows me can attest to that fact up until 1.3.

Lastly,

Screw the roll, we never needed it
Screw the energy fix, we never needed it
Screw utility, we never needed it
Screw defensive CD's, we never needed it.

Give us our efing damage back, and that's all "REAL" concealment/scrappers need to survive.

(Revert our damage back to pre 1.2 standards and give us our backstab CD back) And I promise you people will fear/hate this spec like they used to.


With that, Enjoy the video.

A video from pre 1.2 from a player who gave up on the class? I'll refer you to the first 30 seconds of my video

My post was not a ditch at you; It was an agreement post with you. And no this is pre 1.3 footage which was when this class lost all respect as a DPS class. If you refer back to posts of the time they were no longer Raid Capable, and were considered nothing more than gnats in PVP that presented little to no threat to anyone.

Despite the people who continued to play the class.... since I quit, all I have read from people on these forums is exactly what I said would happen.

Noone listened... and I sit back and giggle when I read post after post after post after post about how broken the DPS spec is.

I hate to be the one to say this;

I told you this would happen.

And noone listened, noone supported me when I was the loudest voice against the nerf's. Now, you all made your bed, you get to sleep in it.

Not me.

Oh trust me the thought of directing this towards you and justmonies was there originally. In fact the original plan was to have your name tags above the people sitting around the table in the batman scene but my video editing skills are really really bad so it looked terrible.

I was also going to dedicate the last song to a certain player too but decided the whole video worked better without pointing fingers and calling names, which is a first for me I think.

Really glad you enjoyed it though, praise from Caesar indeed.

Did you delete the video?

EDIT: Oh, apparently it's a copyright claim.

Honestly, if you want to dps as an op you may be better off going lethality. At least lethality can "Theoretically" kill its target. Concealment can't even do that. It simply lacks the damage. Lethality is very bad, concealment is unplayable.
-Dimitri Dolohov, lvl 55 Lethality OP. Toxic personality (Retired until viable again)
-Sgt. Amit Dolohov, lvl 55 Gunny Mando,. Rifle wielding hipster.
I'de rather lose a real fight than win via premade.
