I've been saying this since beta. When the **** are snipers going to be tuned down a bit? They have the most dps in game, the longest range, and some of the best defensive cooldowns. This class NEEDS to finally choose a side. Why are they not glass cannons? They are more like tanks with the highest dps in game.. Been broken for 5 years.. Comeon Bioware....

Not... really. snipers didnt become tanky till they gained imperial prep, and they didn't become top tier till they got the h2f from ballistic shield

They should rename it to "Alone Under the Dome".

Snipers got a significant nerf to 2 of the 3 specs very recently, marksman is performing pretty badly, and you want to nerf the defensives now, too?

Reaaaaaaly?

You do know "Beta" was 6 years ago, not 6 months ago right?

Just checking.

Snipers were notoriously not very good for a good part of their history. Sure, fun turret, but 0 mobility or survivability for quite a bit of the game start.

Take current sniper, and strip from him the healing ballistic shield, the roll (and obviously the heal on roll), the cd reset, well basically shred everything safe Evasion (once a minute) and shield probe (once every 30 sec, laughable).

Alternatively, go run a warzone with those utilities selected. Then take countermeasure, imperial prep, and the roll off your bar.

Thats how your MM sniper was in 2 and 3.0.

Snipers did get a nerf.
Everytime you log out and back in to the game @ lvl 70 on a sniper, your Utility points are reset and when you forget to set them again and join a WZ.... you get hurt.

I doubt many people with any knowledge about the game want to remove all those CDs. However, the bubble heals absolutely could use some adjusting.

Yea I love seeing Snipers topping the damage charts with 600+k healing at the end of a match.
