I feel bad for all my fellow guildmates that want to PVP as a Commando, but they find it totally unfair. I don't even play a commando, but I can see their argument. The classes are so well balanced as total mirrors... but this seems unfair. Commando healers can be seen a mile away by Sith players in PvP. Yes, we can see Merc healers cast bar and everything, but this is a huge difference.

I'm guessing this has been requested before by commandos on these forums, but I just wanted to add my two credits.

I couldn't agree more. The Commando in general needs work. My trooper was the most fun I had leveling, I love all the specs, it's a FUN class, but it's detrimental to you're team in endgame PvP when there are significantly better choices.

Now I heal on my Scoundrel. It's fun and inb a WZ I can get 300k heals and the other team never marks me and has no idea I healed. On my commando I'm marked in the first 10 seconds. It's just not as fun.

I love the game, and I will continue to play, but why not make every class enjoyable to play at level 50, if that's a viable option?

You guys get so side tracked.

The green beam needs to be changed. For pvp it's horrible. The Mercenary's stream of green bullets isn't nearly as noticeable as the green beam. Mind you, I only really use hammer shot if I'm in dire need of healing on the move or I'm out of ammo for some reason. It's basically like jumping around shouting "kill the thing on one side of this beam cause it's already dying, then come kill the other cause it's out of ammo".

Stupid question from someone who has never made a Commando...

...does that green beam get smaller if you use a Blaster Rifle?

A little. But barely.

Indeed, although I do not play Commandos, I can't tell you how many times in PvP I have with my Marauder completely obliterated a Healer Commando simply because they are so easily spotted in PvP. They are typically the first Healers that get the big bright Target or Star or Lightening above their heads. Not fun for them I am sure.
