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

i do love the "simplicity" of the combat system, stats, and flow...

but, i've been running the same dailies, the same FP's, and same WZ's for about a year now with Merc.

i can't take any more abuse, frustration, and disappointment.

Admittedly, they can be very hard to catch when used correctly to hug corners, but a lot of that "escapability" falls aside when attacked by multiple melee enemies, at which point they just aren't quite tough enough to sustain without further escapes. We have plans for the future that should give Mercenaries and Commandos better escapes in PvP.
I want to see a Dev be," hard to catch" , in a 1v1 situation. It's comments like these that give us the impression that there's a disconnection between them and the actual pvp environment they're supposed to manage.

We will have to see for 1.7 if they do anything.

I'm waiting till 1.7 before I cancel anything. Hopefully with the reopening of Illum mandos and mercs will get the loving that they so desperately need.

If they don't, well, it'll give me a better excuse to start hitting the gym again.

-Sigh- I'm in the same boat pal. Just like the previous poster wrote, I am also at my limit! Patch 1.7 will be the last chance for BW to balance this game for comando/merc. I have both of them and honestly, it's quite frustrating pvping.

just got my powertech to 50, and move most of my gear from my merc

even using Recruit mainhand/offhand, i am killing it. what i am doing on my Powertech takes a crapload of effort, and finger master skills, on my merc

its nice to not play a gimped class for once tho
