Force Pool

If they nerfed Force Pool to 50 Force, it'd have very little actual effect on most Assassins. You basically want to get rid of your Force as soon as possible in all situations since the less Force you have, the less vulnerable you're to any kind of CC. After all, if you can't do any meaningful attack, you don't really care that you can't hit the other guy either.

Extra force pool doesnt mean much in PVE content. There is no point in having extra force pool because if you pool up that much energy, then you did 0 force damage during that time. If people played WoW rogues, its the same thing.

the thing about assassin, much like most other classes, is that people who use their force wisely are rewarded by not running out. learning how to do this is part of becoming good at your class. what i mean by this is that we have abilities like maul and shock that are actually really expensive when not used at the right time or not talented into properly. if you find you don't have enough force power, which i assume means you are running out frequently and not able to use abilities, you just need to take a closer look at the talent tree you are using and the abilities and rotations that work best with it. for example, the general consensus is that maul should rarely be used if at all by darkness and madness trees unless they put talents points in duplicity and it procs during combat. maul is just too expensive to spam in any tree. this is just an example and there are other scenarios. the free melee attack is there as a tool to do some damage while force is low or needs to be conserved.

Assassins isn't a class that gets higher resource regen for having more resources, so at least for PvP running out of resources faster is better. By faster I don't mean you Maul a guy twice immediately to get to 0. You still use attacks that you'd normally use. Damage now is always better than damage later. Burst DPS situations are usually tied to cooldowns, and they're not something that occurs frequently.
