Knockbacks, roots, massive dmg, lots of shields and survivability, 2 ccs, can't yank or leap to them while their in cover, and an interupt. Pretty op.

Well related to other ranged dps they are OP sure, however when you compare them to ptechs and marauders (or fully augmented melee ops and I mean fully to the point where they can almost kill a player during stuns) they are just in a good place.

What we should do is bring up merc/sorc dps specs. Sure sorc is great for the chart but it is weak in teamplay pvp.

I hope they do ramp up sorc and merc dps. If they don't, and muraders and powertechs get nerfed, you can only imagine whose going to be getting most of the complaints after. Range DPS was more balanced before 1.2 with the exception of the snipers. I like where they are now, but it sucks the other classes got the hit sooo hard.

by more balanced you mean overpowered. Zeoller said (regarding merc DPS pre 1.2) no class that is that simplistic to play should do the damage it does. Classes for the most part do damage based on their skill cap... the more faceroll friendly the less damage they do because less skill is required to play them. Thats why marauders (good marauders) out DPS everyone.
