Hi, i'm sorry to bother but i'm an old player that has already played on the Jp version and since is passed a lot of years from the creation of this game and, from episode 3 to be precise i'm wondering if could be possible recive a rework of the Bouncer class or a serious buff that will fix the Damage problem that this class have.We are right now in episode 6 and, not so far from New Genesis so, i know that the popularity of the Bouncer class is low since the Scion class are tremendly strong and cool but even without this classes the Bouncer class is still way underrated when we talk about damage.I heard there is a "buff" incoming but if it gives just a 20 second of Photon Blade Fever skill is easy to assume is kinda useless since even if we got a longer duration we got nothing when we talk about damage %. It feels sad heard about change like that because i have more then 1400 hour as a Bouncer Main and is tiring, even if is really a fun class to use you know that if u want something to be done u have to work more than twice than the other classes and without even reaching that well. I know as well that was intended to be a more supporting class than a real dps machine but it dosnt work well eighter in this role. In the end i will repeat myself asking the same thing: Is it possible to recive a serious Bouncer Buff?
I hope to recive feedback from other BO main class for this issue. Thanks for the attenction and sorry for my bad english.
Edited Part, just for clear any possible doubt i will quote myself from another post in this thread:

all that you have said is about "its lack of damage" but that "you enjoy playing the class cause its fun"
idk what could be understand wrong? you asked for feedback from other BO mains...i asked one who does really good on bouncer and he sees no issue with the damage a bouncer does...idk why you even think that bouncer is a support class??
The Bouncer skill tree contains more supportive kind of abilities like fields that are meant to be buffs for the surrounding allies.The level 85 skill give u the ability to activate thos fields when u dodge an attack.Yes this buff can even be for you but was designed for a more supporting role, same can be said for the weapon action move on the jet boots that cast shifta, deband and zanverse.If it was intended to be a more self damage improvement instead of area buffs Sega would have gave a stance or a toggle buff for the self improvement.Also instead of having any other self damage improvement you got the two stances that are situational: In case of Break stance it will apply to destructible parts, and Elemental stance as the name suggest it will apply if you have a weapon that match the elemental weakness of the target.For be short there are no generic self buff or passive that a real dps class have.It was meant as Hybrid class and obviously dosnt do well one thing or another.
pso2 works this way: -you know how to play your class = you deal tons of damage -you dont know how to play your class = your damage is mediocre/bad/feels not enough
As i said earlier i'm not pretending to be TOP DPS or TOP PLAYER but after more than 1500 hour as bouncer on NA plus like the same on JP i think i know how to play my class.The difference i got from JP was just that i played till end episode 4 because on the JP server the delay between episode updates was longer, one episode could last even a year or more so when i played on the JP i got a different experince of this class and thats why i expressed my suggestion here about the fact that in episode 6 in my opinion Bouncer need a Buff.And yes a buff means even if you adjust some minor or major problem such as swapping, cooldown and other issues it will increase your damage % over time because i was mistaken it easy to understand it.
if you say you dont like the playstyle of bouncer then play another class thats more fun to play? why rework a whole class because you dislike it? makes no sense to me...i trust the people i play with...if they tell me bouncer is fine in terms of damage then i believe them...as i said he has his own youtube/twitch channel and has his own website too....if you want i can arrange a chat with him and you can ask him for advise if you really want to increase your damage
I ask for a rework because it can be fun play this class (as it was for me personally till end of episode4/5 ) but there are issues that force you to look for other Class like the Scion one because for sure they have a more easy approch and gave you better performance. That dosnt mean that all classes need to get this treatment, i hope ALL the old class can get a buff so instead of having the majority of player leave their classes for Scions they can just stick to play their favorite classes.
