thats why im giving sniper a try, powertech is so boring.

i played my pt for the first time in probably close to a month tonight. couldnt remember keybinds for like half of it, and still put up almost 700k damage lol. easy mode class is easy mode

I've got a sniper too, but he's stuck at like level 27 or some such.

Even in lowbie pvp it's still incredibly easy by comparison. You know, with being uninterruptable and not having smasher jump to you, or not having VGs/PTs pulling you all over the place.

Was just watching a sniper video. Their lethality spec will be able to use their takedown on full health people.

I would like to just have a takedown. Specially since it's hard for us to lock anyone down that runs from us. I'm looking at you operatives!

OF course that's just me being selfish. It's funny, the more that I look at the classes, I realize Mercenaries have always been shafted. So much so that a "buff" ends up being what every other class has had since day one.

Wish my brother hadn't told me to play a Mercenary for him.

I was reading back through one of my posts on the Jedi Covenant forums before they announced 2.0 asking what each class wanted in the expansion. I said:

- Each interrupt on a casted ability increases the healing or damage of the next ability by 10%
- Each interrupt on a casted ability heals the Commando for the amount the cast would have dealt
- Commandos now have an AoE DoT called Berserk that affects all targets within 100 meters of the Commando. The damage of Berserk is increased by 5% for each player attacking the Commando. Thinking about attacking the Commando increases the damage of Berserk by 10% per player. Thinking about not attacking the Commando or attacking someone else increases the damage of Berserk by 20% per player.
- Reactive Shield now lasts 1 year. An active subscription is required.
- Emergency Medical Probe is now Emergency Medical Grenade. On use, it revives all teammates within 8 meters. In addition, Emergency Medical Grenade revives affected teammates at 300% health.
- Healing teammates instead of healing yourself causes you to commit suicide.
- Players walking through the Hammershot beam are killed instantly. This includes teammates.
- Being defeated by Grav Round crashes the victim's computer, unsubscribed them, uninstalls the client, charges them a $100 disconnection fee, a $100 asking questions fee, and deports them to a third world country.
- Unlike other Advanced Classes, if you take off all your gear as a Commando, you are actually naked (you must also sign a waiver).
For some reason, I actually think the class would still be underpowered.

It'll have dropped long before that due to the heat death of the universe.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

Those imps are bunch of no-hopers, try to play that way against quality opposition and you'll change your mind.

“If all forms of intelligent life are allowed into heaven, jawas will feel uncomfortable and it will no longer feel like heaven to them. Maybe heaven is segregated by carbon-based biology and scavenging skill so that all the bigots can still have their eternal bliss without having any of their beliefs challenged?”
