BW, do you ever plan on addressing DPS Mercs/Commandos PvP-wise?

Sorry for it being blurry.
Name Analette, level 17 in pic (now 21)
Damage 340053

If you don't believe me just look it up I play on POTF and will be on later tonight if you guys want help with your class just send me a tell and I'd be more then happy to try.
i was there buddy...and i got some pretty decent credentials. server 1st BM, VR67 pre 1.2, etc.

you have no effing clue what the fook you are talking about.

10-49 is by no means a representation of what PvP is post 50, and not even on the same planet as RANKED.

all i can tell you is:

it's better to remain quite and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

these guys in here know what they are talking about. (especially, Cash, AALBC, and a few others i would consider the MOST knowledgable Mercs)

you do not.

i got pages of 400k 60+ kill matches pre 50...

The sadest thing at all is that even so many constructive and cool ideas to fix merc/mando BW don't giva a damn. They probably don't even read this thread anymore. I higly doubt about any changes in upcoming 1.7. Nice thing that our cause has very big social support, even no merc/commados are here, so thx. I don't know is there any bigger hate/QQ topic on PvP - and hate/QQ in the best way it can be .
For now i just need my 30 m stun back... (not this breaks on dmg, casted, PVE crap)

That's quite optimistic of you. I personally don't think they ever read this thread. The BW post notwithstanding.

i'm not sure they read it or not.

but, what i am pretty sure of, is they don't give a damn about the community or their ideas.

they have in-house testers and metrics to record and provide all the data they need.

they don't need a bunch of consumers telling them how to code, balance, and run their game. <---sarcasm from the comsumer point of view.

i'm fed up. overly fed up.

i'm nobody special, other than a loyal and paying customer, that has been here since early beta. i've seen the death of dps Operative, the rise of thae tank'sin, the nerf of the Merc, and the continued strengthening of sniper and SW/JK.

i've pre-ordered Makeb. but, that will be the last $$$ i give, if this Merc situation (and OWPvP/class balance) issues are not addressed and fixed.

if they won't listen to me here, then maybe they will hear me when i stop paying. (highly doubtful, still )

Thats why my commando is PVE only. I use Shadow in PVP. My PVP stress has gone WAY down.

The sad thing to me is, I bet we won't see any changes until "Spring 2013" when they change our abilities to accommodate the +5 levels they're giving us...why would they waste their time?!
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. 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.

i predict that whatever new abilities are given will cause even more imbalance between the classes. bioware has proven time and time again that they fail at figuring out balance internally

Oh absolutely. They rely far too heavily on their "metrics"...and the numbers don't always present the total picture. Actual PLAYING of a class, by the best players at the top ranks, tells the true story, not sub 50 PvP testing.
