I'm thinking about maining my merc for 2.0 and walking around saying "Haters gonna hate." all the time when people complain about me queuing. Then just saying "Hater" every time someone jumps me in a warzone. Can I key bind that?

Cant keybind it but if you have a good mouse or keyboard you can certainly macro it.

Don't look at it as big change little change, look at it as effective change.

Was cutting plasma cell in half effective? No. It was an ineffective change. With everything I've seen in 2.0, they've gutted the PT/Vanguards to the point where now it's go Tank (healer meatshield squad) or go home (they broke two of the three specs).

With the buffs they've put into place for the Merc/Comm...are those going to be effective? Heck no! When all is said and done, what did we really get? We got a slow...a slowing affect that applies a weak dot while letting the target move progressively faster, back to normal speed. This is ineffective. Under the best circumstance you're going to E-net your target and then try and unload on them. Your target is going to range interrupt or pop a defensive cooldown...all the while they are starting to move faster and will be fisting you mommentarily.

The buff, although small, is still ineffective.

I get where your coming from, just look changes being effective or ineffective. In both cases, they are ineffective.
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.

The nerf to plasma cell has me worried...that could be HUGE to me...it's unfortunate they don't seem to understand what the **** they're doing.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

It is huge. From what I've seen PT/Vans have seen a SIGNIFICANT decrease in damage output.

Don't forget the nerf to AP too.

Changes to ammo management also makes no sense >=(
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.
