Powertech - am I doing it wrong?

so... I pvp'd for the first time tonight since 1.4 went live. For the last two days I've read a LOT of negativity about the powertech changes.

"QQ I can't kite as well"
"QQ my I can't start attacking from a distance"
"QQ give us back our range"


Well, am i the ONLY powertech that now uses both thermal detonator and explosive dart in my rotation now that they aren't on the same cooldown? Because while I hear (well, read) a bunch of QQing, I notice my dps going even higher O_o

Vanguard, but as a mirrior, no you are not doing it wrong IMO. I would say sticky grenade(our version) is a good opener now, but I wouldnt put it into my rotation though. Once within 10m you have better options.

yeah, I use my vanguard as well. I was more or less joking.

I just noticed a bunch of people ************, but when I got in game my average dps per match went up.

I don't ALWAYS use it in my rotation, but when they start to get low in HP, I'll toss it in there to help finish them off before a healer can save 'em

People are just ticked the Vantech AS/Pyrotech isn't a range/melee hybrid anymore. These are the same people that rolled the class because everyone said it was so good. Now you need to adapt to the changes and a bit more skill to play it and people don't like that.

This is the standard story for every popular class that gets a nerf in every PvP MMO ever made anywhere. I just laugh, kill them all with my perfectly find Powertech, and move on. Enjoy the free kills while they last.
I used simple happy language words to help you understand.
Why yes, I have been a proud SWTOR Community member since August 2011. Why, wanna fight about it?

True it does add more burst as well.

Yes, you are the only one.

You are the chosen one.

It is your destiny.

I'm specced Carolina Parakeet on my PT and going Assault Specialist on my VG I'm still leveling, and in pvp I've noticed a significant increase in dps on both. Yeah, the incendiary missile is a little more wonky because of the range reduction, but that has actually caused me to change up my rotation which by pure luck it became more efficient as far as heat. So, yeah, let them QQ about how it's broken now... rather read and listen to them whine then all the ppl QQ'ing about how OP we are.

What rotation are you guys talking about ? You mean those three buttons you need to mash to face-roll people ? And you needed to change that ? My god that must have been hard .
Just a bit a joking/trolling here, don't heat up .
