No, I won't, because I couldn't care less about DPS output in general. I'm neither a raider nor a pvpler. Heck, my Sniper spends her entire time crafting these days as it is one of the classes I enjoy playing least.
However, I do care about the feel to the skill. It's supposed to be an Orbital Strike, not an Orbital hug. I've watched the PTS Forums because of this change and I do not understand why some of the suggestions there have not been taken instead of such a huge dmg nerf.

Also, the nerf hits my Operatives who are using the skill a lot while doing their dailies.

I remember getting OS for the first time and I immediately fell in love with this iconic skill. I do not care about numbers, but a 62% damage nerf will be noticed even by me and destroy the feeling to the skill I used to enjoy. Especially as there are other suggestions to solve the problem, some of which I consider to be better.

Meh, tbh I barely used OS on my Sniper at all. Only time I WOULD use it, is to clear out a big group of trash mobs, so I couldn't care less. Only thing Bioware is doing is bringing it in line with other AoEs that are used to clear trash mobs; mortar volley for example.

Then you obviously don't raid. Because if you are an Operative you use OS on every single boss and long lasting add groups.

My birthday in few days, PC already ordered and arriving shortly, DX Racer chair on its way, Guardian / Juggernaut buff which will make me a considerably powerful raider...

I love February so far - make it a month of the year for me with this simple piece of digital clothing :]

Here I come, foes, to ravage you with my double ravage opener!

We got the first pack the 14th of january..

Usually, they keep about a month between the packs.. 3 weeks seems like very soon for the next pack, but we can always hope.. My guess would be the next week again tho, the 11th of feb..
