Because the answer to all your L2P issues is that the other guy MUST be overpowered.

VGs/PTs cannot. we used to be able to do it with the sacrifice that it would fill up the sniper's resolve (cryo + harpoon), but BW apparently thought VGs/PTs should have nothing at all.

uh.... the heck does this mean? any spec for dps is dps. an assault commando isn't going to be able to heal himself. it's just a cheap heal medal if he survives a fight. VG dpsers have very bad survivability. being a tank AC has no effect whatsoever on their survivability or dcds. why shouldn't they get the same treatment as a "pure dps class"? I'm not really taking issue with anything a sniper has (except VG is the only "melee" w/o a gap closer for them), but I'd like to understand the privilege of this "pure dps" logic.

OP- "I play a marauder, and the one class I can't insta-pwn without effort is the sniper, NERF!!!!"

Learn to use your speed boosts, stealth, LoS, distraction tactics and not just run across open fields at snipers. In the words of marauders for the last 6 months whenever anyone dares to suggest they're OP. "Get good, l2p, working as intended, etc..."

Also, we're a pure dps class that's supposed to do high damage. The damage done however is by no means too high or unfair. Take this as an example. I rarely get hit by 5K from a sniper or gunslinger now that my sorc is in 75% BM and 25 % WH. They'll hit me sometimes for 3-4 K but I can heal right through it. However, I still regularly get this message: defeated by force sweep 6995 damage...snipers aren't the ones needing nerfs. You don't see them doing 7K hits to well-geared people on a regular basis.

You can't complain that there are too many "nerf sent/mara" threads then simultaneously complain when a thread isn't all about you. Go away dude. No one cares if you feel like the victim.

@OP so basically you're mad that snipers aren't commandos with slightly less armor? Cause it seems to be what you want.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

What I take from all this is a complaint that there is still a ranged DPS class where the range actually is a benefit from the melee DPS, while the other 2 ranged DPS largely has a hard time staying at range, and of course is not as well suited for the melee brawling they eventually will find themselves in.

In stead of nerf; I call for Merc/commando and Sage/sorce range DPS to be buffed to be as good as sniper. Not sure if sage or sorce is already. Know merc isn't

Seconded though my understanding is that Hybrid sage/sorc is actually in a pretty good place atm.

Ssins, opers, BH - anihilate gunslingers pretty fast.
DOT rangers smoke out a gunslinger pretty succefully and win with 85% if there's a rock to hide behind.
Slinger's is an awesome ranger on on open area. SUX cos of great los dependance.
If you know how GS/sniper works, you can kill him easily.

I rolled to a gunslinger after a long playing my commando (since beta) and was happy as Jackie Chan cos his utility is just awesome! but now back again coz my soul belongs to my trooper anyway. I fry snipers as chickens EASILY. THey are turrets, they don't run even if you aoe them coz if they run they become incredibly squishy. So, they just sit like hens on the nest waiting for an egg and you just shoot them - end of story.
