For those who have not noticed, SOE developed a new policy for releasing new weapons a while back, after the chaos of ZOE. They release them under-powered, evaluate their performance, and then buff them up to par if necessary. If the striker is released to powerful, like any other weapon, nerf calls will commence immediately and the brutal nerfs delivered will likely not be undone. This is how we ended up with the useless striker we have on live now. I know it's hard, but have a little faith. Hey... you weren't using your strikers anyway, were you?
