Whenever I see an arsenal merc spam his tracer, I just think "lolololol". Interrupt him and watch him panic. They've got absolutely NO tricks up their sleeves. Melees should have a really easy time against ars. mercs. As a pyro merc, I just make them burn and watch them run away in terror.
And I've seen operatives crit for 5.7k, so 4k is nothing compared. And tbf, everyone with decent PVP gear crits for 3.5-4k.
Grats on killing your own game, Bioware.

Please do not post SS of LOWBIE warzones. No one cares about lowbie warzones.
Arsenal mercs are a JOKE at level 50. And what you call an "iwin" button is in fact their biggest downfall.

You forget this game has only been officially out for less than 2 months theres bound to be loads of bugs i wouldn't be surprised if there's still patches being updated all the way into the summer. I'm a trooper and yes i know it's annoying when they do 4k damage but are you using your shields, relics and other enhancements to reduce the damage and the surroundings. Especially on hutball use the flames. IT'S AN ONLINE MMO its an internet issue get a Ethernet cable and connect directly to your hub.

heavy armor with heals i can't deny you that we don't have either. Though I ask you do you realize how much heavy armor negates not as much as you think and if you think that heavy armor gives more HP wrong again its the mods in the armor that do that , so light and medium can have just as much HP.

As for the heals they are easily interrupted so use the tools that you have in your toolbox. Now look in the Mercs toolbox all we have is a hammer for screwing screws, and unbolting nuts.

Sure go ahead and nerf our 1 tool but have the decency to give us a kiss with that reach around.

My main is a merc, and yes I tend to do pretty well in WZs. However I have a few alts of different classes and while I'm not 50 with either of those yet, I've done pretty well with most of them too. Hell I did over 200k damage in one of my first WZs as a lvl 18 juggernaught. I've yet to see any proof that mercs do ridicolously more damage than any other class.

People can talk about arsenal being too easy to play as much as they want, but unless they've played it themselves and experienced how incredibly immobile you are and the extreme lack of escapability they don't really know what they're talking about. I won't say for sure, but I'd be surprised if there's any other spec that's as easy to shut down as a merc.

Oh look a BH merc standing way over there shooting me. Yep he is still shooting me and I have done nothing to make him stop. Damn I died! *** NERF BHs!

Depending on the class you play you have many ways to mitigate/avoid the damage. As a combat medic I am often in the sights of a tracer missle's amazing what happens when I put an obstacle between myself and them. I stop taking damage. This whining is akin to someone complaining that a Jedi is hitting them with a lightsaber. It's not fair they keep whacking me with their glow sticks! Nerf Jedi!

Say that to all the OPs and scoundrels that are being gutted next patch. Merc and teir counterpart are next then that rediculous tank bubble. And by tank i mean those sorcs that blockk 100% damage and walk through fire with a bubble.
