Doesn't bother me too much tbh just replying to say that it is OP, there wasn't meant to be a question in my comment

As I've already told you I want nothing to do with these questions, my interest in the game has waned to the point that after I've finally got my rank 100 (my fault in the delay for rolling and playing so many other snipers) I'm gone. If people want to ask the devs a question in it's current form that's related to a feature that isn't already out yet then good for them.

Islander, I have the same problem at work. If you right lcick the link> properties, you can copy the link and paste it in your internet explorer (or whatever it is you use). Works for me that way. Clicking the link directly doesn't work for me but that method does.

No luck with the copy/paste thing, and yeah, we use internet exploder.

well maybe a bomb or two, but surely not all five.

I'm not going to go out of my way to cry for a self nerf - I do understand the counterargument with smash and spreading out. I just unequivocally want the jumping/roll exploit gone ASAP. If Bioware says "rolling bombs into a wall is legit" then I mean hey - at that point I'll defer to what respected folks in my server community seem to think. I'd rather lose and have a good personal reputation then the opposite. I'm generally a good person in real life, and this game, besides some occasional trolling for entertainment purposes, is something I've never aspired to be any different...

The question (similar to the issue you guys have been discussing) is up in the spreadsheet. It's on both PVE and PVP sections. From CJNJ

Quote:
Did they intend for our roll to have such an impact on the class? With the roll we have the ability to avoid mechanics in fights(doom in DG) and in one particular spec is the key damaging move at this time. Are you guys planning on letting us keep the roll as it is or will we be seeing a nerf? If roll does get changed will anything be added to compensate for it?

Definitely should be reworded but pretty much our roll is really powerful at the moment and I would personally like to know if they plan on doing anything with it

We started a few days early but here is an official message to the Class Representatives .

Quote:
As you compile your top 3 keep in mind that the goal is provide commentary and specifically questions to the development team which you wish have them address. Try to phrase things in the way of questions that we can answer.

Bad example: You guys are aware that we suck in PvP right?

Good example: We feel that in general our class lacks some utility and cc in comparison to other classes in Warzones. As an example (your reasoning), do you guys feel we are in a good place here? Do you also feel this is an issue?

GalnarDegana the Gunslinger Rep (mainly PVP) will be "taking over" this thread and hopefully he will start the pvp discussion going and get good questions for the sniper/slinger PVP community!

Question for uber-snipers: does SS/MM get used in rated outside of huttball? I've played rated very little but I was under the impression that MM was only used to grab the huttball (roll to the middle, knock enemies back and grab) and that the right tree was the tree for DPS.

Hot topics portion. Made some changes on the spreadsheet. Check it out. Hopefully i did not miss anything.

Also Day today - Tuesday. Eric said he'll get back to me on Thursday to have the questions "finalized" for Friday. 2 days left.

GalnarDegana, being a pvper hopefully you can chime in on this thread. We are short on time for the sniper batch and eric knows this >_>

I'll throw my vote in now, since question submission seems to have slowed down.

PvE #3
PvP #3
PvP #4

Obviously a bit biased as I only PvP. I wish all of them could be answered, especially the very short ones like color crystals being so underwhelming for tech classes. Maybe the devs will be generous and throw in a few extra short answers anyway.

Updated. Any comments/votes from your other ranked bastion sniper buddies?

Will roll into cover ever work as intended?

It's a key mechanic and 3/4 times you will simply roll in place rather than roll to the object with the green outline of yourself as the intended destination.
