Game Update 2.6: THE LOOOOOVE PATCH...?

The CB Team (me) would like to wish you all a Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Now, for those who missed it, or may not have heard, Sir Musco has enlightened us with VERY vague words about an upcoming patch. And in these vague words, there were 7 that caught my attention and put a smirk on my face. Try and figure out which 7 they could be!


Game Update 2.6 first and foremost will mark the launch of Galactic Starfighter! That will mean the introduction of
•The Gunship unlock available for F2P players.
•A new Gunship variant.
•Two Bomber variants!
•...and more! We will talk more about this next week.
Also, Game Update 2.6 will come with a few class changes, here is just an overview of some of what you will see:•A fairly significant DPS boost for Operatives/Scoundrels. 
•Mercenaries/Commandos will now have a skill to eliminate pushback on Tracer Missile/Grav Round and Power Shot/Charged Bolts.
•Sorcerers/Sages will now have a skill to eliminate pushback on Lightning Strike and Force Lightning/Disturbance and Telekinetic Throw.
•Mercenaries/Commandos can now cast Kolto Shell/Trauma Probe on more than one target at a time.
•Mercenaries/Commandos can now use Rapid Shots/Hammer Shot on themselves while Combat Support Cylinder/Combat Support Cell are active. 
As always, look for the 2.6 patch notes for a full list of all changes that are coming! That is just a preview of what is to come.

Ok, so clearly, it's not that hard to figure out which were the words that excite me and should excite ALL OF YOU. Finally, FINALLY Some Operative love! It's been a long time coming, but we all know that. Now, that we know a change is coming, this raises many more questions. What exactly is being buffed? Is it specific talents, specific skills? Is it just an overall buff to ALL damage? Or is Overload Shot going to receive twice the damage boost and call it a day? (Imagine that! :/ )

For the moment, we just don't know because we do not have enough information. So, hopefully sooner than later, we shall gain specifics. But for now, speculations, assumptions and guesses will rule and annoy. Stay tuned to see when we get some official words from Boiware!!
