Focus Guardian bug: sweep completely missed

while dueling ...
  1. Felling blow proc is up
  2. 4 stacks of singularity are up
  3. opponent is within 3 meters
  4. force sweep activates but does no damage

there is no message that force sweep missed, it simply does no damage. Sweep is now on cooldown but the felling blow and singularity buffs are still present.

Force sweep, being a force attack, should never miss another player unless they have defensive cooldown up.

My commando opponent took no damage. He also has no interesting buff/debuff icons.

I have the above recorded and I've watched it several times to confirm the description above.

This looks like a bug to me. Please comment.

isn't it about time the smash monkeys got some love, i feel for those guys trying to get by these days in warzones with a spec that's so difficult to play.

in conclusion "buff smash and nerf operatives"

I seriously doubt it. The enemy didn't jump to a location later or -- he stayed well within range after the sweep for several seconds.

BTW, I'm asking a simple game mechanics question. I'm not sure why some folks have to turn it into a smash hate thread. The crux of the issue are the questions:
  1. Is there something I'm missing that would explain this not being a bug
  2. it is a known bug -- many other folks have seen it

That's good. We don't need any more smashes than there are already in this game.

Have fun.
