So Bioware. Now we had 3 years of mercpocalypse and the next disaster you get your players are stunlocking concealment operatives.
Double hardstun your enemy while you rip out 50% of his hp bar in one go.
Nice.
At least mercs were visible. Operatives aren't.
6.0 is going to revive the game, but only for a short period of time. Pvp is going to be even worse than now, when hordes of stunlocking operatives 1 shot their victims from stealth. And soon no one will play this game anymore.

Don’t break 1st stun, also after the 50%, the op has blown his load early happens to us all apparently

I would be more worried about snipers

That's what you get when you expect too much from a game not designed for PVP at all... Abilities are made to fight trash mobs in PVE, PVP is only a mini game with a small community that has been destroying itself for years...

2. The current team doesn't seem to understand their classes at all and just design random tacticals.. and they don't understand the effect they are going to have in PVP.

It will be a massive mess for sure. But honestly, did you expect otherwise ? I mean sure, they are ambitious with their revival of their game, new set bonuses , tacticals, tons of new gear, but are they going to be able to balance that ?

As for mercs ? Good riddance...

I hope Sniper have good DcD for solo, as I am ready to burn them all.

6.0 looks a grinding pain. If the pain is bad as in 5.0 launch I might take a break after doing the story. From the reviews it is not looking good.


ps. My friend remember to take care of RQ I am alone flying the flag with my Sentinel

I have to agree. For me they could have left the game at 50 and just introduced new tier of gear and new content.
May be 1.3/.4 is when balance was best at. Today we have super nos which seem to make no sense.
