Hey folks!

As you may have seen me mention yesterday, our goal today was to post some of the class changes that are coming in Game Update 2.7. Below you will find links to individual threads for each class that is currently receiving changes in 2.7. I want to stress that this is not a comprehensive list of all of the class changes coming in 2.7. As the Combat team continues their work and more changes are implemented, I will be sure to pass them on. With that being said, here is the initial list!

Sorcerer // Sage
Marauder // Sentinel
Juggernaut // Guardian
Sniper // Gunslinger
Operative // Scoundrel

One thing to keep in mind is that Game Update 2.7 marks the end of Season 1 of Ranked Arenas. You will notice quite a few of these changes are targetted at PvP specifically, it is our goal that you will typically see "bigger" Class PvP changes between seasons. On the topic of seasons, it is our goal that either tomorrow or early next week we will be publishing a blog with all of the nitty gritty details around the end of Season 1. You will get to see the rewards we have planned for Season 1 and the ranks required to achieve them. I am very excited for you guys to see them.

Thanks everyone.

Because people complain, and they complain a lot.
These are not the signatures you are looking for!

DPS Mercs / Commandos still don't work in ranked pvp and nobody would even consider using them for a good team. Can you guys please fix this AC ASAP, thanks.

Also please look into removing dps that are qued for 4v4 arenas changing stances to guard a player, it is really a big advantage in solos to have a guard.

Where is the Tech Override/Power Surge changes?

Or are we supposed to just be grateful you acknowledged the biggest problems that Commandos/Mercenaries?

Or does it actually take 6 months to alter the cooldown of an ability?

It's ok Cash...they probably just looked at the classes on the PvP Leader Boards and made changes to those classes...I can see how we were overlooked.
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. If his forces are united, separate them. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. A leader leads by example not by force.
