It is totally unacceptable this are not being addressed.
If you dont have the expertise to fix such a gamebreaking bug atleast make it even so Republic can do something simular.

I would love if there was like 5% chance that the missile explodes before being launched, killing the clue-hunter in the process. Oh sweat dreams...back to work....

What bug exactly are you referring to? First I've heard of it.
50 Commando - Atreus - Hyperspace Cannon (PVE West Coast)
Because there's more to PVP than open world PVP.

Mercenary´s can spam a highhitting ability even though their game mechanic (overheating)
should prevent it.

its cheap gameplay, should really get a look as spamming one button for maximum effectiveness wont be that satisfying for the missile spammers as well.
If you dont take your opportunities in this life, in which will you do elsewise?

You have no idea do you? The ability is the trademark for the Arsenal Mercenary. That whole tree is specced to make that skill stronger and less costly. So no, there is no game-breaking bug that BioWare missed. They purposely put it into the game for that class.

Now as to why they get such an OP attack which seems to kill you so easily? Here is why:

  • DPS: VERY HIGH
  • Mobility: Zero
  • Survivability: Little to None

This game isn't going to be super-balanced on play types. Your best bet is to learn the play style of each class and THEN PvP. This class type is a glass cannon. They cannot move. They have to charge up the attack. And they really cannot survive many hits. If a melee character can get into range and stay there, then they will destroy the class. If another class stuns the skill for four seconds, they are done for.

Learn about a class before you start screaming bug, seriously.

Any Arsenal Mercenary that spams Tracer Missile is not playing the class right. Unload, Railshot, Heatseaker Missiles should all be the majority of your attacks with Tracer Missle thrown in to keep the buff up.

And there's also a spec in the talent tree that lowers the hear cost of Tracer Missle.



So when you see someone spamming Tracer Missile, just laugh at them because they aren't playing their class right.


P.S. - I'm in full Champions gear.

true, still the gameplay highly lacks complexity. i consider it a part of balance that every class is ROUGHLY as hard to play as others.

i dont mind loosing to an enemy who shows strong gameplay. he might just have been better than me. but i mind dying to one-button spamming kids who literally showed nothing that would justify a win over me. this is what bothers me.
