Hell no. On the offchance it actually happens that person would be owed all the money if they bet zero credits. Thems not good odds my friend.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

Hah. I've been watching their streams. They're playing around with all sorts of classes right now, but listening to them speak (and Icressi rage when gets inevitably focused), I really REALLY doubt they consider a merc 'optimal' lol.

And I know you're not saying that, but most of the good PvP mercs/commandos in this thread can and DO run ranked, even if often we're just a 'we need an 8th, who the heck shall we try?' oddball pick, despite representing the best our respective servers have to offer for our class. What we'd like is for the class to be balanced with those optimal obvious picks.

this. ive done RWZ on a Merc, and done very well. the difference being that i would have done even better had i been playing say sniper. and then my teammates would not have to peel for me so frequently.

Bioware won't fix them because...they simply don't know how. It's been over a year and there's been no movement on this.

It's not that they're unwilling, they're unable...which is a far worse scenario.
Preventing Hackers and Exploiters from ruining the game is not a priority. Preventing you from mentioning the fact that they exist and go unpunished is.

I fear this is true.

How come when it comes to trooper nerfs they are all for the big change (cutting plasma cell in half), but when it comes to buffs they believe in tiny baby step change =(
