It seems that a lot of my most vocal sniper friends are no longer clanned, and actually, as a sniper, Im feeling more lonely than ever. You dont hear about crazy backstab flee deaths anymore, cause the new backstab doesnt seem to para for much longer than 2 rounds anyway. So again, Im wondering, Is there something for snipers to look forward to? And if not, can we have fast backstab back?
Eek! and one more question, I remember coders talking about fixing tumble to account for high perception bonuses. Did it happen? I seem to be tumbling more, but I just wanted to be sure!
just my opinion
The other night, I experianced a single stun that left me with 37/216hp. I would be very lucky to do that much dam with a para, since I could only get off one more before they wake, and thats with a succesfull immediate flee, and going straight back for another bs. I have more luck against mobs, mobs much bigger than me that i shouldnt be able to kill,and no sniper should be able to say that.
I am not trying to cry my way to a 5 round para (wink 100mind stunner) if I was too disasitisfyed with snipers, I would perma and go a differant way, I am simply wondering why upgrades are made for chars that already outclass us. Dont get me wrong, there are some bad ass snipers out there, but looking at the numbers, and watching a sniper try and fight a straight fighter or a mage, you have to notice that its kinda lop-sided.
If you really want to even out PKill, perhaps you should upgrade the fundamentally weaker types of chars. Even if your a hard core PKiller, chances are, you arnt gonna backstab your way to HeavyWeight PKill champ.
just wanting to add his two sence...
