nice backpedaling bud.

and commando is fine for derping around in regs. ffs, i was destroying everything on PTS.

in RWZ tho, we are not so good. pretty bad in fact, when you compare what commando can do to any other DPS class

Umm..yeah, you really can't call yourself "fine" when one of the two you fought was apparently AFK, with just over 15K health, and the other had just over 14K health.

It's like having a highschooler beat up a 5th grader.

i can hang with the best classes on the server even the smashers... i mean whats so hard about kill'em before they kill you? they may hit that first smash but when they go for the force stasis/choke just cc break and knock'em back. not must sigularity got build and cleanse the force exhaustion. I'm just gonna PvP a little more on my mando and posts more vids. You may belittle other players i may defeat by calling them no hopes (and they were but they had my team 2 capp'd and time was ticking) but My commando makes healers disappear from the battle field pretty quick and hangs witht the best dps on my server. More vids coming.

Wait... you weren't being sarcastic about this video?

You were essentially getting destroyed by recruit geared terribads through most of it.

Please tell me you were being sarcastic

Not sure if serious....


Cash is right. This IS why we can't have nice things.

i have a commando healer, i do pvp regularly.

i can feel clearly that it would be useless to respec him as dps because he wouldn't be effective at all. i stick to heals because i can do my job well (except when i am marked, as it becomes hard to survive, due maybe to the lack of control this class has..) and can enjoy this class..my other toons give me a completely different sensation in pvp and i don't think this is right..it's evident the lack of balance between this class and the others.

After reading the changes, I thought we would be in good shape. Guess I need to get my lazy arse on PTS and see for myself. Is it that our changes didnt help? Or that other class changes helped them even more?

Im looking forward to little things such as double-power-surge Concussion Missile + Rapid Scan. If they dont break it, you can heal, run, etc. If they DO break it, our Electro Net or Stun Dart will land for the full duration every time.

The difference was that people "almost" didnt even need a stun breaker vs a Merc. They would only need to possibly break an 8sec CC and that wasn't even a big deal anyways. Now, the stun breaker won't even help them because of the extra 2 or 3 options we have. It seems like it really changed that aspect of a 1 on 1.

Also opening with a snare seems huge.

Just so you know, that last strike of ravage will hit you up to 10m away. So backpedaling away from it won't get you out of range fast enough.

There is never a situation where backpedaling > running. L2strafe
