Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm a bounty hunter with a rocket pack currently level 37. I find it frustrating in huttball that the force users can jump from platform to platform at will making it so i cannot chase them.

But I a bounty hunter with a rocket pack cannot jump from platform to platform.

I find this to be a pain and unbalanced. If this ability becomes available to my class at a later level I'm sorry for posting this.

But as of now it sucks hard.

Depends on your ac as a BH, you do have jet charge and grapple.

Exactly, sounds like OP is just venting his RP issues and using the warzone as an excuse. If he were to get his way we'd also have to concede letting Sith force strangle you from the spawn point, smugglers always shooting first, and troopers dying from a single blaster shot.

All would be fine until it gets really awkward with the Jedi getting the ability to kiss their sisters.

By the OPs logic I should as a Jedi be able to reflect all your blaster fire, crush your jetpack with the force...or you depending on my alignment...or hold you in place and 1 shot you with a saber.

Wrong.

Powertechs can have rocket jump and grapple, Mercenaries get neither. It is a legitimate complaint for an advanced class that can not obtain them short of rerolling.

If merc gets it then merc AC will be absolutely devastating and overpowered - the catch is always that powertech/vanguard gest mobility and merc/commando gets devastating long range aoes and cone of fire attacks.

If mercs gets mobility as well there will be no point in having powertech in pvp (since mercs also wears heavies and are survivable despite not having tanking talents).

I dunno know about that one, As a Tank power-tech <and loving it> my Merc buddies go down pretty fast if the opponent catches on I've been pulling them away from healers and nodes and charging into them when they try to capture things.

It took time for me to like the class seeing 1000's of Jedis everywhere but I do have to say we are a unique class that rewards the player for sticking in there. Hell I'm only 34 and excited every Kill/Grapple/Shock/Rocket Smash of the way.
