Love it or hate it you have to admit the merc was in alot better position 1.0, 1.1:

look at how the merc can move, with the fuctionality of the tracer missle and switch alternate targets without effecting the cast ability, can handle poorly skilled melee which is what turret class should be able to do, whilst maintaing decent turret class damage.

emancipate the merc, set him free or at least allow those who like the opriginal animations to keep them.

this video shows the merc had a spammable castable ability that on average dealt 1500k damage with the odd 3.5k crit, stone the crows....

Edit:

i mean in a wz setting your suppose to have artillary going off like that
but hey the alternative we have now is much better right.

God those were the days. Wish they'd roll back those nerfs and let our old dogs run free to teach these young pups what it was like before the smash monkeys and other FOTM's.

I want to show them what true OP meant.

Honestly the biggest nerf to commando in PVP was when everyone else realized they had an interrupt. They could revert the damage right now and it wouldn't change things much, though it would make missed interrupts hurt more.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

People back then were having problems with melee classes because a lot of them were keyboard turners and clickers making it obscenely difficult for them to attack and move to prevent kiting at the same time. The good players were few in number, and those that were good stuck together.
