I swear every warzone I go into it's the same thing over and over again smashers, op healers, lolstab, snipers...are there any plans to fix this **** bioware calls balance or are we all meant to reroll just to compete with other classes?
Needed to vent :3

yes but not flavor of the month. More like flavor of the season/year. Classes stay op or underpowered for a lot longer than a month. the foty atm is sniper, rage, and operative healer.

The class balance team got laid off and is now only a class balance guy

BALANCING IS STRESSFUL, KIDS.

If they would read the forums once in a while they might do a better job. It is well known that operative healer, healer in general, rage, and sniper dps are too strong. It is also well known that many dps specs are lacking in pvp.

They paid attention to the forums in 1.1.5. Where did it lead us? A disaster in 1.2. They paid attention to all the baddies who couldn't deal with Sorcerers an Operatives. They got nerfed into the ground and the balance went completely out of whack.

so you're a merc/commando? you said every other class was OP/FOTM but merc/mando lolz. there's only 4 mirrored classes. you can't say 6 out of 8 are overpowered and need a nerf you silly goose

Most of the people who regularly use the forums know what they are talking about. There are some people who have all the credentials but are awful and say everything is learn2play like 1.7 merc but there are not many people like this. There are a lot of random people who complain about assassins or merc being op and don't really know the game but people who regularly use the forums aren't usually like that. I could be wrong but that is what I think and I think listening to players is better than letting a class be underpowered/overpowered for 6months+ at a time.
