Your arguments fall flat when you consider that snipers in most (all as far as I'm aware) other pvp games do not have cloak yet are still very effective and sometimes dominant. Hell, games like Battlefield punish snipers by putting a big glint in front of their optic that can be seen by anybody on the map. Guess what? Snipers are still great. Planetside cloakers have it easy in comparison to snipers in any other shooter.
