To be honest, rank-matching should pretty much take care of underpowered specs affecting chance to win.

People playing them will simply have garbage ranks, pairing them with and against windowlickers on OP specs and mediocre players on middling specs.

Means you wouldn't have as high a rank on the UP spec as you would if you played an OP spec, but if you care about ranking that much you should switch spec, eh?

Balancing would be nice, but experience teaches me simply to hope the nerfs aren't too hilariously brutal.
It's a small world and it smells funny, I'd buy another if it wasn't for the money.

Dude, operative dps has a lot more CC's and survivability than some other dpsers.

Dude dont pull the merc card....everytime I see a "poor pitiful" thread someone always says "atleast your not a commando/merc". I have a merc, he doesnt seem to do too bad. They arent 3 button winners like the tank classes, but its not like they dont have worthwhile abiliities.

It is not like dps operative hell lot of damage either, or put different which damage you want to nerf there?


And for those that still dont understand dps scoundrels and operatives are the squishiest melee dps class in game. since you have to go melee to do anything they are effectively the squishiest class in game.

The CC they have is good and in heals spec combine with a lot of other abilities this leads to great survivability, but as dps i cant make up for the disadvantage of having no decent CD despite combat stealth (which in concealment you want to save for another hidden strike).

Since the class will never get buffed anyway, and the series of nerfs continue i think BW can just put the nail into the coffin, to middle tree. Lethality still is decently good in regs, but once it gets competitive the slightest they die like flies.

One reason you see so many operative healers running around in pvp is that you have to be masochist to play the other two tree for a longer while.

Now hunted to near-extinction, the Lesser Spotted Scrapper roamed the plains of Alderaan and Denova, where they provided an effective brake on the numbers of slower-witted, lumbering creatures. Their former prey's noisy, trumpeting hordes overrun today's warzones.

Haha! Mine's stuffed and displayed on a shelf.

I'm naively holding out to see what 2.5 brings before going sawbones.
