Just as it happened in 1.6 NOTHING will be given in 1.7 as well. Something whispers in my mind that we won't get a thing until Makeb. I almost gave up swtor too. If not a guild leader i'd play something else for sure. As for playing a sniper/PT..., i tried both and have 50lvl on each oh them. Love my commando still. Having fun on my low lvl alts from time to time but nothing serious. If 1.7 won't bring a change, i'll give up TOR till Makeb.

Mines lvl 20 at the moment and I'm seriously thinking about using my commando to help grind WH gear for him for when he hits 50 and sending it to him with legacy gear.

Though, more than likely, if 1.7 hits and mercs/mandos do not receive a much needed buff, along with a much needed nerf to other classes, I'll finally just throw in the towel.

I find it amazing that you'd spend money on an xpac for a game that is a disappointment.

Yeah, in a long Voidstar when you go unmolested.

DPS really isn't the issue anyway though.

its very possible to pull those numbers but I can promise you if you played any other class youd be closer to 900k

Congrats. A few of us do that kinda damage occasionally. It is no small feat.

Now go roll a real DPS class:

(Those are just peeps from my server. I know there are bigger).

Now. Why exactly would people choose to bring along a merc/mando only capable of 800k? Our amazing utility? Our mobility?

yep, those are the classes I see at the top most of the time. Also Operatives. I never see mercs unless they have a free range to blast anything without getting accosted. But I have zero respect for Sent/Mara. If you aren't putting up heavy damage as them you must be playing with your foot and 3 fingers

Guys, I want to see my Commando active again as much as the next guy. But honestly, Bioware just doesn't care. Why would they? A majority of the subs aren't Commando, so why would they waste time fixing them? They have enough on their plate with the skeleton crew they have now. IF Commando ever does get a buff, it will be next year. Hopefully I'm wrong though. But they just don't care.
