Is this post trying to be amusingly ironic?

I wouldn't say I have seen a huge influx at 50. I do see 1 or 2 per team, usually just 1; every match, and that is an increase as I would say you didn't always see 1 before 2.0; but hardly enough to write home about. Actually last night had another on my team, and that was Pistols, who I think has always had one, and while I was on my gunslinger, I have had a sniper since launch; I'm just trying to main on the Pub side now.

Your team is bad. Who cares if snipers are FOTM if they're going to be that bad. Same with inquisitors. People choose bad classes/specs to FOTM

If I recall correctly, they were getting to be pretty popular before 2.0. In fact, I distinctly remember someone in my group mentioning that they were the flavor of the month a week or two before RotHC went live.

Since when?

Joined a Warzone with two Smashers and two cross-healing Operatives. Good game.

I was in a WZ (post 2.0) with 4-5 troopers on my team and 6-7 BH on the other team once. According to the logic of the op, troopers and BH are the new flavor of the month.
Guarding a healer is not only the job the the skill ''guard''. It is also your job to stay around the healer to be a plague for the people attacking the healer.

DPS in that WZ is low haha.
Snipers are fine, don't let them freecast.

Thank you for world of snipers Mr. Peckenpaugh, world of smash wasn't annoying enough.

Hey! It's me down at the bottom lolololol. It's what I get for guarding.
But seriously that was a RIDICULOUS WZ yesterday. I've had mine since before 2.0 and was sad to see my class being played so poorly.

I voted for the Pyro PT for being a nonconformist.
