I am not saying the rotation is involved at all, but we DO have an interrupt. Disabling Shot

As a commando enthusiast...I'm all for giving vanguards and powertechs some love. Maybe, say, fix Assault Specialist/Pyrotech so it's not awful. Why? Because when the Devs took the nerfbat to Assault/Pyro to stop vanguards and powertechs from being the FotM, they made the commando/mercenary version weaker too.
In PvP right now, Assault Specialist is entirely inviable as a commando; Gunnery has far more survivability (Hello reflexive shield! Hello tech override->medical probe->medical probe!) and with nearly half of Assault Plastique's damage in the form of a (cleansable) burn, its burst no longer surpasses that of Demo Round.
TL;DR: fix Assault Specialist/Pyrotech for vanguards/powertechs, because commandos/mercenaries need it too.

Balancing according to BW = pick a AC and make it the next fotm rinse and repeat keep players subbing whilst totally wrecking other AC's in the process
