They said the hindered effect is the same as mando electronet (without the damage).

All i see is that mercs and commandos will still be excluded from all forms of ranked pvp, as per biowares design.
Go into yolo que and most people are bads but get a merc on your team and you know it's a loss even before it begins

I think this is basically it for deception, madness or so some madness heavy hybrid with low slash now clearly will out perform deception in its classical pvp setting. Thanks QQers well done.

but yeah operatives are kings of stealth burst again :P

combat will no be boring has hell, maybe i should start playing smash then.

Combat will be great again. Nothing is more boring than spamming a key over and over again praying for a 30% proc. **** that ****. I'll take reliability over BS rng.

Now they give the only thing unique to those classes to sorcs. They want to give them the ability to escape. So now commandos and mercs are the only ones without the true ability to escape. Don't even mention HO, it's too easy to negate.

Nhilas disagrees with you as he is the best group ranked commando healer on the server. You mentioned all forms of ranked which includes grouped ranked as well, hence my rebuttal to your argument. In yolo you are correct, mandos are not the best. However, who needs mandos in yolo when you have 4 juggs or 2 juggs, 2 powertechs? No need for heals!

I don't think it'll be boring persay it'll still be a bit of work to time things correctly while you're not stunned etcetc

I don't understand some of the people that qq about this buff making it better 1v1 since tbh it really doesn't majority of its dmg is still in a window which any smart player will stun through. Its not like we're getting unstoppable its just reverting it back to more like pre 2.0 i guess.
