Unload doesnt vent heat anymore, meaning you over heat QUICKER, which means LOWER DPS for the dps spec tree.

Heatseekers seem to have been reduced too. Much lower damage from it. Overall damage is lower

STILL NO INTERRUPT ABILITY

But how is it compared to other DPS classes?

It's all well and good to cry "nerf!" but if the class was higher than other DPS then perhaps it was necessary to bring them in line with everyone else.

Mercs have been needing some love for a while now. My brother rolled a merc (Lvl 50 / 65 Valor) and quit (for real, and I did get his stuff!) because it's an awful class. Watching him punch his monitor every 2 minutes was amusing though. If they did nerf the damage, from what I understand, it'd be pointless to play.

You judge things by the temperment of someone who punches their monitor? Also, if you are not rolling things as a Commando/Merc, you are doing something wrong.

Your evidence and data is quite compelling. I bet that right now they are rushing through a fix based on the info you have supplied.

My heat management and damage are both doing well since 1.3. We vent heat every 6 seconds rather than having an unlucky long streak without a crit and overheating really quickly. Not sure why you are having problems.

Apparently your choice for BH in PvP is Pyro...and, umm, that's it. Well I guess you could guard a healer with Powertech.
