its totally insane the amount of CC these classes have, i have understand snipers needing it, but why do Ops/scoundrels need it? they have over 3+ CC on low cooldowns, aborb shields that aborb around 4k+ damage instant stealth, heals good armor mitigation and the ability to flat out evade the next 2 or 3 moves within a short time...


I wont even speak about thier dps, i just want to know why one class gets all these tools when there are other classes that dont even get a fraction of the tools these guys have...
Why do troopers find it hard to move and shoot at the same time? because it requires more keybinds then they can handle.

Because other classes don't die under 15 seconds when they're out of stealth.

lol Their defensive screen doesn't mitigate near that amount of damage.

Their CC. One is a 1.5 second knockdown that is only usable from stealth. Then you have Dirty kick which is on a 45 second cooldown, can be talented to 30 seconds, flash grenade that is on a 60 second cooldown and breaks on dps. Finally you have tendon blast, and shrap bomb (you can only get the shrap bomb by talents in Dirty Fighting) both of which apply a weak snare.

Oh almost forgot, they have a sap which is only usable from stealth that fully resolves in one use.

Why should this class and it's mirror class have those CC abilities? Well they have the worst sustained dps in the game, and anyone claiming to get wiped out by their opener has either some serious l2p issues or serious gear issues, oh they also have absolutely no way to close the distance once in combat, vanguards have harpoon jedi have leap. You have tears, and scoundrels have tissues.

Rumor has it that Operatives/Scoundrels have been nerfed more and faster than any class in MMO history. Well playing one it feels like it.

Stop crying already.

"WHY DO SITH HAVE SO MUCH STUN!?"
"WHY DO TROOPERS HAVE SO MUCH GRAV ROUND!?"

Get over it, your complaining isn't going to change anything.

first off get your facts straight we have 1 cc that works out of stealth, 1 stun which is the ball kick. one cc in stealth (the target has to be out of combat) and our shootfirst knock down which is also from stealth and doesnt even last long. the 2 out of stealth the kick is 45 seconds and the one actual cc we have is one min cooldown. EVERYCLASS has just as many and sages/sorc have 2 that can be used in combat and there jump knockback that holds you in place? is like the shortest fking CD ive ever seen. I dont know what class you are but play a scoundrel first before you complain were super squishy out of stealth and we have the worst shields in the game.

You lost all credibility you ever thought you had with this statement, we all knew you had none, but now your subconscious should be telling you to maybe let your mouth take a back seat to your brain.

Scoundrel has 0 utility, and I question the intelligence of your opponents if they don't kill you quickly. It isn't hard, so my assumption is, they don't kill you, because you either uncloak for the killing blow and cloak again, or simply cloak as soon as someone puts dps on you, even a little.

I bet you are one of those stealth class types from other games who need that safety blanket of stealth so much you are always cloaked on the Fleet.

So I find it incredibly ironic you are crying about a class you play, perhaps you ran into a real scoundrel/operative and he made you his *****?
