snipers behind the screen are too crazy dps. working together they got too many cc's and cannot be leaped + they boast so much damage that they are just too crazy...

lol

Too many CC's? Like what? a 4 second stun on a 45 second cooldown they can only do from melee range?

My main is a dps darkness sin. On average I tear through snipers like crazy. Only time I die to them is when they are on ground that I can't quickly get to. Like on a bridge in Huttball, or a cliff in NC. Worse case scenario is that I have to stun then pull them or just cloak.

Sniper dps is balanced out due to the fact that their pretty much turrets. They have to sacrifice mobility for damage. Overall, their probably one of the more balanced classes, relatively speaking.

The only time snipers are deadly is when their ignored and allowed to do their insane damage.

Snipers can be LOS'd all day. A smart pyro can kill one without hardly taking a scratch.

The main thing snipers can do, is that with some specs, they can put out enough burst to kill a fotm lolrauder who doesn't think to use their cds, or is used to facerolling anything they come across.

That's probably what happened to the OP.

Have you only ever run up against MM in PVP? I find that hard to believe. LOSing is cute but ineffective against engineering, and I imagine the same is true of lethality.

guys guys, this is the dude that made this thread

look, instead of making fun of you, i will ask you in a polite way, what class exactly do you play and in what scenarios do you find yourself being killed so often by them? You must be doing something terribly wrong. We are not monsters here, we understand that anyone without knowledge of other classes abilities can have trouble.

You see, we snipers are like sanitary wolves of the forests. We keep the FOTM Maras and PT population in check so they would not go on a total rampage.
