Love it, but sadly people will start QQ'ing about how OP scoundrels and operatives are. And whats even worse is BW is dumb enough to listen. Any class will pretty much melt under two other DPS hitting them, but BW and the average player is too dumb to understand this.

Actually, a pair of Scrappers working together will probably rip through a SINGLE target faster than most other DPS classes working together. And they can do it from stealth with no warning, and while the target is CCd for 7 seconds (1.5 KO + 1.5 KO + 4 Kick). Technically a pair of Sins could do it for 8 seconds (2 Spike + 2 Spike + 4 Electrocute), but that opening hit doesn't deal nearly as much damage as our opening hit. Their opening salvo also wouldn't include a double stacked 3100 damage internal damage DOT and 30% armor penetration.

That said, a pair of Pyrotechs would almost assuredly melt a target much faster, and with more armor penetration, comparable internal damage, and bigger overall kinetic burst. Same with two Carnage Mars, albeit with different damage values. These guys just can't do it from stealth (or, in the Marauder case, can't get the stealth opener in quite the same way as Scrappers can). They also can't do it while their target is "stunlocked", at least not with any consistency. Mars channel their main stun. PTs can fire Electro Dart back to back, but that depends on both of them having a 50s CD ability up. The Scrappers just need one of them to have a 30s CD kick ready.

The solution is obviously just to pair guards on a node, watch your healers, DON'T CC BREAK THE KNOCKDOWN, and be mindful of your positioning. Of course, that's too hard for most pug idiots to understand, but at least the solutions are out there if people care to learn.

yeah i know that there are plenty of counters to scoundrels, but what most people hate is the stunlock part i guess, i mean it would suck to be 100-0ed with no chance of fighting back ]:

Well just think about history of Scrappers/Concealment.

When the stun from opener was 3,5 secs giving full resolve bar, Bioware's "brains" nerfed these trees because of some Youtube videos of Operatives with full Battlemaster gear during the period in wich adrenals where buged and could stack. The official reason was: "Teams of stunlocking Operatives bla bla bla" (3,5 seconds stunlock!).

Now people can be stunned for 8 seconds (with a perfect combination of bubbles can be 12 seconds) while a Marauder or a PT can do more damage that Operatives did with adrenal bug. And they can do it on people with full Expertise!

Now go figure Bioware's logic .... because I can't
