If you interupt the tracer missle it puts us at a HUGE disadvantage ie you can kill us. Use ur interupt, stop being bad and ull do just fine.

Stop being a *****

Sincerely the mercs

You know, this is acctually kind of funny. In my personal experience playing a Merc I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt the class type I have the most trouble with is the Assassin/Shadow.

I can take down sorcerors fairly well, I can destroy marauders no problem, Im on even ground with most of these people...
And suddenly an assassin comes out of thin air, stuns me, and proceeds to smash me into dust.

Doesnt help that the assassins also seem to follow me around the dang battle field, always stealthed. I swear, I must have killed their brother or something for them to hold such a grudge.

The only thing more annoying than an assassin is an Op/scoundrel, but they arent as deadly or tenacious when fighting me. Once you let off two tracers the Ops tend to stealth and run. Assassins stick around and go for the throat.

Mercs and Sorcs deserved nerfs far more than operatives.

why did they make 1 button classes so overpowered? good game design would have the high skill, multiple button classes as the ones that are strongest.

And here is a fine example of really bad players who dont understand certain classes and their strength/weaknesses geting it nerfed for being horrible at the game

If you have a interupt and cant beat a trooper then just stop talking

my powertech that uses far more buttons tops the scores and the medals over the 1 button spamers, the troopers and mercs that are toping charts are NOT 1 button spamers and actually use all their other abilities

cry more

No need for nerfs, BH is fine. Arsenal could be just a bit better tweaked to introduce more variety - but nerf = BIG NO. It would be step in wrong direction.

off to the next poor sap that isnt a trooper.

awesome. good job.

gg





clearly the most played class currently PVP wise and u wonder why?
Any melee class can win against any Merc. Mec has zero ability to get out of melee range.
Ok, 1 knock back on medium CD.
Every melee class in the game has one form for slow that works over long time, or an ability to pull him to you, or jump to him.

As long as you get into melee range, that merc is as good as dead. All you have to do is keep running around him / trough him and you wont be hit by any of his attack.
And ALL of your attack is instant attacks. All of them. Mercs have..... 1 that is actualy of any damage use?.
Most melee classes has more then 1 stun or slow ability on short CD.

And lets talk about damage. Any melee class, no matter what LvL they are, will do more damage then a merc. It is not uncommon to be critted for up to 3k by a melee class, but a merc? No. If you get critted by 2k from a merc, he must have had the most up-to-date gear of his LvL that he can get.

Im LvL 45 and try guess what my crit damage with tracer missile is. If Im lucky I get 2.1k. Mostly I crit for about 1.8k.
Again I often se my self being critted or 3k by melee classes. Where is that balance?

I would like to see melee class get nerfed backinto line with mercs damage. Why should melee classes do more damage then range classes when they have a ton of utility to slow down, stun and get into melee range? While merc's have 1 to get out of melee range?
And when he do get out of melee range, the merc has NO SLOWING ABILITY so he can start kite.

All of a mercs damage abilities is all on casting time or channeling time. And on top of that, all channeling spells can be knocked down so they is become uneffective, and on top of that, all cannelings spells do have "medium" CD's.

Only trancer missiles can be spamed, and it has a casting time.

Lern how to play if you cant beat a merc.

to reach melee with an assasin or shadow you have

stealth
force pull
force shroud
sprint
vanish

and with an interrupt you can shut them down permanently

not to mention that you have a knockback a stun and a CC like us,we dont have anything that you alredy have

1v1 arsenal mercs are the worst class outthere if you dont believe me roll one,and when you will get facestomped by everything that is not a sniper or a juggernaut you shall realize how much you are wrong
