i know they arent, im refering to any yellow name. its the community team that works the forums, and Allison Berryman like 99% of the time. it would be nice if she could at least let us know if anyone has taken a look at this thread

It's a real issue, despite those few unproven PvP demigods who like to pretend otherwise.

I wish I could believe that, but 1.4 just left me seriously doubting that. At best, they have good intentions and no clue how to implement those changes, which what do you know here's a thread full of some good ideas! The fundamental lack of understanding which the last round of changes revealed was just staggering.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

I don't know about good intentions. Looking at the patch notes, there's no mention of bounty hunters anywhere. So here we are at version 1.4.3 and the mercenary is still being ignored. At best, it's a mild neglect. At worst, it's willful ignorance.

Well said. Also, bump for justice.

Merc is meant to be a companion type class like HK-51, didn't you notice the similarity in our abilities?

I could be wrong, but I don't believe they have ever made any class balance change outside of major patches. They may have changed an ability here or there because it was not working as intended, but you're going to be waiting until at least 1.5 before you see any significant changes.
I have opinions and stuff

you are correct, only in the major 1.X patches have there been class changes of any significance. it wont be 1.5, but maybe 1.6.

i am guessing that with the release of the new warzone we will see some better pvp balance changes
