All I have to say is good lord. Nearly impossible to get close to. Took practically zero damage when you did. Couldn't keep him out of cover for more than a second.

I hope this isn't what we have to look forward to at 50.

Wait, you want me to tell that best ranged DPS class deals best dps? Hairesy!

Operatives/scoundrels and assasins/shadows that get the jump on them destroy them.

Commandos/mercenaries make a short work of them as well.

Yep. Already made a thread about this. It's mostly the operative/scoundrel advance classes, but the class as a whole needs to be relooked at. Definitely in need of a nerf. An operative dealt over 410k in one of our warzones with a high hit of 5800, and I've seen hits in the 6500 range. Rediculously stupid. Not to mention a class shouldn't be able to do everything. That's why there is classes.

Operative/scoundrel is widely considered to be quite overpowered from the perspective of skilled/experienced players...

The class does obscene amounts of damage in the late 40's and at 50, combined with its ability to cc you're essentially helpless in any sort of 1 on 1 situation, and they are ridiculously good at picking off healers before anyone on your team can react.

Nerf will come in a few months I'd imagine.

Sniper/gunslinger is to be determined as far as I can tell, but I do know that they can drop huge numbers on the post game stats. I've seen a gunslinger in my guild drop 415k, and he consistently puts out 200-300k in average games.

Just as I have seen mercs, sorcs, commandos, sages, shadows, assassins & warriors putting out 300-400k in matches. Did I Miss anyone? Point is everyone can put out those #'s if they are good. Nothing to see here.

I figured everyone was seeing 50's dump 300k games lately. My 50 sorc friend and I group up to see who can top the other. Operatives, Marauders, Sins and Sorcs can all can throw out big numbers.
