1: Sniper...
2: Always been a sniper...
3: uhm...let me take out my list of all the specs that were periodically gutted (some of which still are ), the Boss Dev had rage fits when playing against some of them at different periods of time and that explains the nerfs.
Vanov - CarnageVanv - VengeanceDarrthvanov - DeceptionVnv - FocusVa'nov - APVnov - Concealment
The Shadowlands - Reading Rainbow - Triumph

just because i am really bored at the game i finially rolled a slinger.... it is just ridiculous how easily you can litterally rape any other class (without stealth).

Just gimme more legshot and more knockbacks :P

The devs don't PvP. Did you not see Alex Modny getting crushed even with a pocket healer?

I think the problem with their balancing is that they have a very limited number of people playing/testing in the office. So if employee A happens to be the best player there they'll probably nerf, or atleast ignore, whatever he's currently playing. They basically balance around skill disparity, in contrast to class disparity.

Actually, snipers do have the tools necessary to help them fight against stealth.

They pretty much have an answer to every class...Especially since operatives kept getting ***** slapped with the nerf club.
No plans for PvP...So, I have no plans to invest anymore money into this game.

I expecxt them to have databases where all of the PvE and PvP matches are recorded. It's an online game with the backend being oin their servers, remember ?

And I tend to believe that according to their massive database entries the top players are literally an "statistical fluke".
If you imagine, for example, 500.000 people playing SWTOR, and the top PvP players are around 500 or so, then they might indeed come to the opinion that this tiny amount of people is indeed some kind of "statistical fluke".

Of you have the Alps, then you don't look at the top of the highest mountain there alone - you rather look at most of the mountain range.

This is what I believe makes them decide over nerfs & buffs. They just don't want to nerf and buff peaks and flukes. They want to nerf & buff most of the player base.

I used to think that until I saw an employee ask for proof/video/screenshot of something (can't remember what it was atm) that any halfass system should be able to track. I thought it was a joke when I saw that post.
