Hello Bioware, Hello Keith and Eric
Take a look at my parse http://parsely.io/parser/view/300214/0 or a parse of the top Madness sorcerer worldwide http://parsely.io/parser/view/298755/0. Why when Bioware balance team are saying that we should be in the same category with sustained range dpsers like IO mercs and Engineering snipers, Madness sorc dps is far dealing -400 dps. Madness only pulls 9,6k if lucky enough but snipers and other dpsers pull around or even above 10k. Look at a virulence sniper's parse http://parsely.io/parser/view/300031/0 and an engineering sniper's http://parsely.io/parser/view/299101/0. Both specs can deal around 10k.

These are Bioware's words on how class balance happens http://dulfy.net/2017/06/15/swtor-bi...lance-happens/

Why Sorcerer Madness does only around 9,4k/ IO merc does 9,8/ Snipers do 10k. Please buff sorc dps in 5.3b cause it's underperforming. Stop treating Madness like u don't even care.

Thank you.

I am agreed mate. Bioware have to do something with it cuz look at starparse leaderboards its still underperforming. Madness should be in same posstion with IO, engi, viru or around not five hundred below. and I know what i am saying. sorcs can only count on luck this days. yes its better when it was in 5.2 but still we need one more small buff. look at my parse http://parsely.io/parser/view/300235/0 I wasted whole day to reach this numbers. I think maybe. mayybee madness can do little bit more but never never reach the same level as snipers and mercs do

Although I don't disagree that madness really should get buffed some more because the recent buffs were pretty pathetic, remember that sniper parses in virulence and engineering have inflated dps due to roll and are approximately 200 dps ahead for virulence. The top engi parses used a bug for extra energy regen, but the top parse that doesn't use that is about 50 dps ahead (not as much as virulence but still inflated and engi isn't even viable in lots of fights due to boss movement). Also they really need to fix deathmark consuming other player's dots asap because that really hurts them in actual ops.

Players who main sorcs,
Please support us with ur feedback. Don't u see how overpowered operatives and other mDPS are compare to us? doing 9k on HM Revan while madness can barely keep up with snipers on a ** dummy just because the class is still underperforming.

Madness supposed to be in the same damage category as engi snipers and IO. Why DPS numbers are all over the place. WHERE IS BALANCE U PROMISED US? PEOPLE ARE LEAVING THE GAME ALREADY. 1 more months wasted and I am leaving as well.

some additionnal damage buff should be nice.

- i would add lightning strike to lightning burns passive (50% chance). seems logic btw.

and/or put 100% chance to leeching strike.

I think I'm done speaking out on Sorcs behalf when I don't even play one.

Exactly - no point to talk when u don't play this class and know nothing about how bad it balanced right now.

this is my parse of one of the best madness sorc http://parsely.io/parser/view/298755/0
and this is a parse of an average mara http://parsely.io/parser/view/289414/0

Don't u see the difference? Madness sorc is underperforming by a lot. I want my favorite class to be great again.
So get ready for a mDPS nerf in 5.4 if they don't decide to balance rDPS properly.

Yeap. Any kind of buff would be nice since madness and arsenal are the worst dps specs at the moment.

Madness is still underperforming.

I support you, sorcs are in the bottom now, they need some buffs. You BioWare even care?
All I did, I did for justice.
