lvl 50 snipers are the most balanced class very deadly if played well but it's rare however at low lvl pvp they really do a lot of burst.

The best part it is from a sin... pretty much the best all around class there is.

But I frequently have that feeling when I constantly come up solo vs the same PT-Pyro or certain Maras. You can do your actions perfectly against certain Pyros or Maras and they can still kill you because of the class. But a Sniper is someone who can't follow you around the node. If a particular Sniper is tearing you up, you can always try altering your combat positioning and semi-LOS a Sniper. That doesn't work against a PT or Mara.
well PT's have been nerfed hard

Posts like this are why we can't have nice things.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

Firstly, nice necro you did there. Secondly, it IS still possible for a melee to beat a sniper 1v1. The sniper does not even have to be a terrible player, you just have to be a better one (kinda the point of PvP as a whole, really!) I won't tell you how, if you have yet to figure out a strategy, then keep working at it (hint: doesn't involve an awful lot of face tanking)

Secondly, I play both factions on a couple of servers. I'll have to call bull on Snipers/Gunslingers suddenly being fashionable.

And before you ask, I do play melee on one of my classes:

Sorc (DPS)
Sniper (lvl 47 b4 you ask!)
Merc (DPS, suprisingly fun to play)
Sentinel
The Progenitor (RP): Shazmi:<Crimson Moon>

I think as melee you can't beat good 1.7 (not buffed 2.0! ) engi with all colldowns and on their own grounds without support (1 vs 1).

I've got a gunslinger, I play him. And I agree. Nerf em. And smash. Improve sorc survivability, and give merc/commando some tools that actually work. I like everything I play which is a lot, and it is obnoxious to have one stand out so far above the others.
