Wait, what? I think you're mixing up your political stereotypes. It's supposed to be the far-left that picks berries in the woods. (stereotypes are often wrong, btw) I think people from all walks of life can agree that personal responsibility is a good thing. As it applies to this game, well... I don't really care about that. I just like to pvp and troll the forums while I, erm, take care of my morning constitutional.

That's right: you all entertain me while I make stool. Thank you for that.

See, you guys crying about Smash. You do realize, that as of 1.4 with all of the changes, they actually introduced two nasty bugs.

1) Smash will randomly hit 0-5 targets, when it should be hitting all of those that are in range. Sometimes, it will hit no targets at all, even if they are all piled up within 1m of each other.

2) Smash will hit, display the flytext numbers and everything....but remove zero health from the targets. You got that right, it does no damage even when it claims to do so.

If you had bothered reading the Jugg forums, you would see the thread about this instead of making yet another Smash Jugg QQ thread.

I play Annhilation spec. In before, BUT UR A MARA, KEKEKEKE!

That or some kind of game of chance, possibly involving alcohol.
Game of chance you say?

The only thing more broken than that is when it actually does the damage that it claims to do.

Well your argument doesn't explain how the presence of bugs, which are unintentional, justifies the problem presented here regarding the unexplained and intentional changes to core gameplay that disrupt player balance in competitive environments when working as intended.

It would seem that you have missed the entire point of this discussion.

Scary as it may seem... that wheel of Bioware dev decision actually made a lot of sense.

- What role do you enjoy playing the most in the game?

- I prefer roles that allow me to exercise a lot of control over the state of the battlefield. In Star Wars: The Old Republic, I play a Defense Guardian.

Whats scariest is that it makes more sense now than when I first made it right after 1.2 was released.
