You're proving my point though, for such an old class there's only like 2 viable build options that (partially) change the way you play.I've been playing ET/Commander with E-11 lvl 3 and 1 grenade for like 10 years, never using dodge. I don't get all you newbs blowing a fuse over this and saying that commanders now suck because you can't become invulnerable every 30 sec.
Commanders are really good, just play with brains and use their superior movement speed and health to your advantage.
Also, imo, one of the best support builds for a skilled player is e-11 lvl 1 and 2 grenades. You can do a lot of damage with e-11 level 1 if you have teammates/play from cover, because it's very accurate and the current bullet speed is sufficiently fast for you to land good shots.
Even before the fp drains, e-11 lvl 1 was very good against jedi and a few of the most skilled ppl knew this and used it in 1v1's even when they had lvl 3. After the FP drain buff I imagine that e-11 lvl 1 is even more powerful. Whenever I play this build, I don't use dodge. In fact, I almost never use dodge. Not in the past, and not nowadays. You don't fucking need it to be top of the scoreboard and super good. You need to get that into your noob heads.
Also, as mace mentioned, T-21 is a very strong gun if you know how to use it. Take fights at distances that favor the superior (to e-11) secondary fire, and use primary from cover almost like a sniper or when someone is airborne and u can predict their trajectory, you can easily pop them with primary fire T-21. It's almost as good as the burst gun on rebels, it just has different strengths.
EDIT: I forgot to mention fire grenades. Those are quite good on maps like smuggler when you need to control the flow of the rush to prevent being overwhelmed. Chucking one on the main stairs or in red room really helps to control the flow of enemies. And they're plenty useful on other maps as well on defense.
I'm not even mad about dodge, but what's wrong with wanting more for such a useless class when you can play Bounty Hunter which actually makes an impact on the battlefield.
