Yeah so this happened

Part of it is that he's lvl 50 and was geared but still this is way beyond anything even reasonable for a class to do. I remember when one of the main selling points of this game was that you couldn't be stunlocked and killed... lie.

Agents have, not only the most stuns in the game, but on the shortest CDs, i believe an agent can get debilitate to a 30 second CD... *** really? Then their opener knocks you down for 3 seconds where they make such a health deficit that there is literally no way to come back and you have to either run or die. Even if you CC break the knockdown, because of the broken resolve system they debilitate you and if you manage to get a lead on them to run away or go for a health powerup they just flashbang you...

This needs fixing ASAP it is ruining pvp for everyone.

that's cool and all, but you are talking about an Operative spec'd a certain way, it is not all agents. This is the sniper forum....

*edit* and snipers are well aware of how devastating Operatives are, we are prime targets for Operatives. If I don't have my CC break its basically a free kill and even then I'm lucky if I can escape.

You mean a competent player fighting bads and pugs can stat pad and look really good on the score bored? NERF IT!!!!

Really though, its pretty sad just how much people qq in this game. Go play Warhammer back at launch when a BW could do half your hp with a DoT, That was OP.

And as my fellow sniper said, Wrong area. We gets no stealth or sexy backstab.

Dude they are not broken.

1st) Game is not balanced 1v1
2nd) All classes have CDs and CCs, use them.
3rd) Learn each class strong and weak points and play accordingly

The only Overpowered Sniper, is a sniper left alone. Seriously, i am tired of people coming on the forums saying Snipers are OP, because they either

-Ignore the sniper completely

-sit there for 5 seconds looking stupid at me while i open up with Ambush/Explosive, follow through and Series of Shots before they go, oh crap, i might have to do something....

Dont get me started on Orbital Bombardment......

You mentioned your self what made that player so good: He was lvl 50 and geared. That means he knows enough about his class to beable to use all of the tricks and tools of it. Cry less about losing to somone better than you, read up on your class, get more gear/lvl up some and then maybe therre wont be such a major difference in survivablilty.

There are BHs in that pic too. Are you going to go cry on their forums to nerf them too? I smell troll.
