If you do a bit of digging, you'll see that 1.1.0 was released on 1/18/12, and people already had the PTS notes for 1.1.1 by 1/20/12.

That's why it was obvious to everyone and their grandma that the metrics were a load of crap, as they announced and updated the PTS with the Op/Scoundrel nerf, which means it had already been developed and gone through QA, before there were any significant metrics at all.
Yeah. That's right. How could they do any metrics on what damage scrappers were dealing after the buff stacking was taken out.

Of course, that patch just made the stun luck worse to some people. The surge nerf hit pretty hard too, and that was only a few weeks later if I remember correctly. I'm still kind of annoyed by that, because stacking surge is basically pointless once you hit about 75%. (800 surge rating = 80%. 600 surge rating - 80%. 200 surge rating = 70%. How is that even balanced to other stats like power with hardly any diminishing returns.)

I have the basic attack on every char except Sage/Sorc. For trooper/BH/Agent/Smuggler, it's useful when you're managing energy (NOT when you're 'out' - if you regularly run out, you're managing your energy poorly). For Cdo/Merc, your basic attack is integral to your healing spec (though not, perhaps, in PvP). For JK/SW and Assassin/Shadow, it's useful when you're out of energy. For Sage/Sorc? If you've run out of energy, you have no business running into combat and swinging your glowly stat stick.
