Vanguard's Ion Storm / Ion Wave animations?

Vanguard's Ion Storm / Ion Wave animations (10m abilities)? What did you do with them?

After 5.4 they are at a 20-30m distance from a character. It was used to be right before character. You can barely see that scorched arc now:

Powertechs are not affected as always...
SWTOR goes F2P; 2014 PvP FAQ, A: "We have no plans at this time" (c)
2014 cantina, A: "They’d love to do that at some point, but technically very challenging and unlikely to happen in the near future." (c)
2016 livestream: "RNG is exciting"; Summer 2018 PvP changes - finally, Bioware delivers...

If any animations should be changed, it is the Vanguard's Explosive and Neural Surge.
The effects should at least emit out from the gun.

Having the Surge abilities emit out of the forearm like it's Imperial counterpart Bounty Hunter would be optimal.

Explosive surge involves the vanguard touching his gun a bit. The surge just starts before you're done pushing with the buttons because of responsiveness. It used to delay until after the animation, until about 1.2 I think, when they made those animations more responsive.

What do you mean emitting from the gun?
