Hahah, ok don't, please - I hate losing like that

I had no idea that was you on the PTS, should have said hi!

/grumble

It was actually really fun to run with good commandos from other servers. May be few and far between, but still

Maybe I missed some big hits. Were you minmaxed?

Pretty sure cash was running full power and surge, so when Demo DID crit, it was gonna crit hard.

High Impact Bolt? Or run gunnery. Demo Round is gonna have no problem hitting 6k.

Yeah, HiB should easily crit over 5k in 2.0 at 55.

Instead of cross server, maybe it would be a cool feature to have a PvP only server where everyone can copy their toons from all the servers. Then we could actually have meaningful rateds/wz's etc without having the scrubs

Yeah, I think I'd rather have cross server with a big pool of players and (ideally) some kind of Elo system, but I'd certainly take a permanent PvP hub with character copying if that was the only option. The PTS was some of the most fun I've had in PvP for a while.

I think a lot of people would be in favor of that if it was the only solution (as opposed to cross server and Elo system which I agree is ideal).

A lot of the casuals would be happy too since the hardcore teams looking for ranked matches would be on the PVP hub and not on their normal servers queuing against them.

Much smarter idea than just splitting queues.

Actually seriously someone suggest that. >.>

Update: Ok I suggested it. Hopefully they see it.

yeah i was stacking power and surge in every slot, and min/max'd for the high power mods/enhs.

i had been using a few slots of crit, but its just so much better to go for power.
and even tho my crit was low (like 20% even with the smuggler buff), surge is still the best tertiary stat. the gains on accuracy are terrible, and alacrity is just pointless in PvP.

Because why should you think about gearing?

Heck my crit wasn't much better than that even in stock conqueror. I suspect whatever you gave up was waaaay more than compensated by the extra power and surge.
