The issue regarding range is very simple.
CONSISTENCY.
It's all it ever needed, it's all that was ever required. Yet somehow they decided to complicate the situation by destroying everything good about it, so ranged classes can feel... ...i dont know
I hate the whole ranged dichotomy. The ranges should be 5m melee, 10m hybrid. 30m ranged... why mobs have a range of 5m and melees have a range of 4 I'll never know. I gave up caring about that a long time ago, don't feel like talking about mechanics like that.

Shatter Slug essentially should've been the long range variant of Stockstrike, but instead decided to give it a damage pool so embarrassing, that Explosive Surge (an ability that has no cd) rivals it's damage. Sigh
They have an issue with High impact bolt being long range, then I look at Whirling Blade for Guardian Vigilance, Low Slash from Shadow Infiltrator, Twin Saber Throw from Sentinels, Frag Grenade from Scoundrels, not to mention the new quick shot utility that GIVES an operative/scoundrel energy, from an ability that originally had a cost. I cant help but ask questions. Why aren't we allowed to have long range? It's one ability...

Simply put, Vanguard's aren't allowed to be fun, because they dont have the force

its sad the BW mostly ignore PT/VG think eric dont like that class
i try this class my self becouse i quit swtor for a long time

and wanna start fresh try sorc first now PT ( pyrotech ) am always a fan of BH
i play in the old days merc but merc in time became boring and to easy

but what i dont understand what BW did is make merc more tanky
2 shield skills self heal kolto that can give 60% heal back

even jugg have more skills that can heal him
and PT have only kolto and that nerft shoulder cannon what also takes time to load first

May want to abandon PT once 5.9 rolls in. Utterly crushed the shield discipline. DPS will be even lower than a lightning spec, even MORE threat generation and still no better defences.

Pissing on PTs without calling it rain.

Because PT/VG was a force to be reckoned with then someone decided that it was supposed be a malee mid range fighter,so... wait for it..BAMM..let's reduce rail shot wish is one of it's hard-hitting CD..oh wait for it BAMM.. let's take shoulder Cannon heal utilities and reduce the heck out now it's not even worth taken.IN SHORT IT WAS OVER PERFORMING AND NOW IT DOESN'T PROFORM.R.I.P. TO THE VG/PT GLORY DAYS
