YES rangers have alot of CC's. YES they can be specced to have alot of dps. But what the **** do you expect from a ranged dps class wearing medium armour? Any decent barb or sin should be able to take out a ranger with a decent healer.
Ranger isn't OP. Ranger is balanced. Pls focus on nerfing casters Funcom, and dont revamp a class that doesnt need it.
Ranger aren't OP in low lvl they all is easy kill but over 70lvl rager is really OP.
75 lvl ranger can feat 7 CC same time and he lose only 30DPS. That is insane and need very huge nerf.
I thing best way is get all ranged CC off and change ranger armor to light.
Ranged class not need medium armor and clear melee rogue class barbarian is more medium armor class than ranger. If ranger can't keep range he must die under 5 second because he can't get both surviliability and ranged damage.
Now when casters lose they ranged CC this same change must make now fast also for rager before when ranger class come true OP.
Ranger's track must also change and make it more realistic when he can only search footprints.
It is also a lot better if this class name changed to archer, ranger aren't good name for class who only shoot others back and then run and kiting than caster.
Good thing your not in charge of anything, I think there is a major L2P issue here, if your melee and cant beat a Ranger then you suck plain and simple.
You know I speak only truth. Test how meny CC you can feat same time meybe 8 if your ranger is 80 lvl. It is really OP.
Meny other class players ask why ranged class have medium armor.
Meny also ask why ranger have something futuristic scifi GPS system what show all other players behind mountains walls or inside houses.
Footprints tracking is a lot better to middle age game.
Funcom must correct them.
there are 4 CCs in the Waylayer tree and 3 in the sharpshooter tree, 1 of which just adds a CC to another that is melee only , one that is a melee range only stun, a KB trap, and 1 level 70 KB for waylayer, then on sharpshooter you have 2 snares 1 passive and a fear. It is not viable for Xbow to have both snares or the fear, it is not viable for Bow to have the KB trap or linebreaker (doesn't even work with Bow). So it is limited, again L2P and stop exaggerating you just make yourself look stupid for such nonsense.
