Is Merc worth it?

But it seems that BW only wants to see Marauders/Sentinels, Tank Assassins/Shadows and Powertechs/Vanguards in a Warzone.
Untill 1.4, I thought that it was only because they are lazy enuff to fix it. But, after 1.4, I have no doubt that it was intentional. Maybe with only 4 or 5 different classes playing, the cost of a game server becomes cheaper...
i would just like to hear an explanation from the guys who balance/play these classes/game.

and if i hear the word metrics, i'd pimp slap them across the room.

it's unexcusable to suck this bad at doing what you are supposed to do, which is class balance. everybody that PvP's sees this, everybody knows this. obviously hyperbole, since nothing is being done about it, because the people that are tasked with this responsibility of making this game playable to all classes and specs sucks at their job.

i really would like to have a civil debate as to reasoning behind the continued nerfs to classes that don't deserve it, continued improvement to already superior classes, and the "metrics" they use to determine this.

anybody too analitical to ignore actual performance is the worst kind of craftsman. i'd love to see and "Undercover Boss" episode of SWTOR Dev PvP in RWZ with real players. at the end of the episode, like the garbage show on TV, they'd feel so remorseful and stupid at how little they actually know and understand their own business.

play the game, see how unbalanced PvP is, and how easy it is to correct by simply reworking a few abilities to put them on par with other classes.

This could be epic. But, it could also work out this way.....

[TV producer]: OK, we're ready to go. You will be an Arsenal Merc, PUGing in normal warzones. Oh, there's a pop - go get 'em!

[ToR developer]: I'm gonna pwn these doods! Haha, I am teamed with a premade and we're in Huttball.

By the end of the match....

[ToR manger]: Look at that! I am the top damage inflicter on my team by 2x! All my other team mates were busy stunning, slowing and pushing enemies while our tanks carried the ball and our healers healed the ball carrier. I just stayed in a corner and shot people full of holes. Lulz, Merc dps is the best, just like I always said it was!

[TV Produce]: Dayum, in all my years filming this program, I've never seen anything like this! Every other time the business manager actually discovers things he was unaware of. Crap, I can't broadcast this. I need a new segment, pronto! Maybe something about the existence of hacks and cheating in game....

My first 50 was a merc. Loved it!
