This might seem like an odd thing to make a point of, but yet I am. My GM pointed it out to me the other day that he felt the career Smuggler and its specialization Scoundrel should change names. It has bugged me ever since, because I think he's got a point.
I'm not sure what the reasoning is (or whether it has something to do with the swtor distinction), but it just seems to me that reversing the two would be more apropriate. The Scoundrel specialization already feels like it's a smuggler anyway. It also feels more apropriate for a smuggler or thief or even pilot to be primarily also a scoundrel rather than a smuggler. Smuggler is simply what strikes me as a specialization while scoundrel seems to be the broader term. It wouldn't be a whole lot of work to reverse the instances of those words and rephrase the descriptions slightly. Look and feel should be just as important to get right as mechanics. Even though I ran a search for this that came up blank, I can't be the only one thinking this? At the very least some insight into the current naming would be interesting, too.
