That's a joke ?

Marksmanship is cleary underperforming. Actually this is one of the worst pve spec and you decide to do a nerf ?!!

In fact you clearly don't care about players and your game.

So everybody must play your lovely class : Marauder or unsubscribe and find another game ?

I am sorry to say, but where do you get this crazy idea that marksman is over performing ? The only two specs that are parsing lower than it are lightning and madness sorc ?

Just more evidence that your development team does not have a clue how to actually play this game.

Do you wonder why Austin SOE development team lost SWG, and a few days after SWG close down Austin Bioware team appears ... this is the second starwars MMO that your developers have trashed.

Eric, after your class changes some of the specs became useless on warzones. Such as virulence sniper, carnage mara, concealment operative. Everyone switched to fury mara, engi/mm sniper, other classes... i don't see many of the specs i mentioned which concerns me pretty much ;( i think you nerfed them too much

I believe the idea is that mm is slightly above the ranged: burst damage target dps. So with this nerf, which will be fairly insignificant (think of the engi nerf, and this is only half the damage), mm will be down to the target dps. Honestly speaking, I think even with this nerf snipers are in a great position due to how amazing our defensives are and we can still pull solid dps on all fights. As part of a personal experiment, I have actually played marksmanship on almost all of the nim fights (except council and tanks) and never faced issues with group dps being low. I've also never had issues being outperformed in pvp because mm has excellent aoe, target swapping, and defensives. I've gotten multiple 8k+ warzones just due to how amazing suppressive fire is I think mm will be in a better position than you realize.

I'm surprised MM is apparently slightly overperforming still after the massive nerf previously but I still like my MM snipers today so I think this slight nerf isn't that bad.

What I am seeing already in pugs in particular but also lazy guildies, is that these nerfs is starting to show more clearly how many people are not playing their class properly at all. There's a huge difference in how long boss fights last even in SM. A lot of boss fights in SM take a lot longer these days, because people didn't learn to get more out of their class.
Don't freak out, I'm just here by the grace of a referal. Nothing more.

Wrong direction Eric, might correlate to wrong direction with subscriptions ---> another server merge on the August roadmap?

After seeing all of the changes made in the past few months, I would fire your balance team. The point of the game is to make money and nerfs to 80% of the classes just causes people to unsubscribe. Hitting a magical number for dps isn't worth losing money, if you think dps numbers as a whole are too high (your balance team obviously does) work it out on the other end i.e. increase boss health or mitigation.

That aside, MM's didn't need a nerf, its not unplayable now, but that shouldn't be the bar in which a spec is measured.

It is a fair nerf. Not too much and not too little. Good job on that.
