ranged is just a PTA. steady is crap.
Just because YOU can't adapt to a new play style, doesn't make the class crap. I am a ranged scout and this patch is the best thing that has ever happened. You have to realize its a completely different class now. I'll make it easy for you, ranged scouts LOST some single target dps but they GAINED aoe dmg, crazy burst, amazing cc's and last but certainly not least survivability!
I am mad that they took away single target dps (part of the reason I made a scout) but we did gain so much more and honestly we are very good at pvp now. I played witches hollow 15 times yesterday and only lost twice. The most times I ever died was twice in a match, however 90% of the matches I didn't die at all. I also came 1st, 2nd or 3rd in kills EVERY ROUND. So yea ranged scout is very good, I also got the chance to see a melee scout in action. Me and a guildee of mine were raping 2v4 and 2v6 and we were just 2 scouts with no heals ( cept AE).
Honestly both ranged and melee are very viable in pve and pvp it all comes down to your preference on a specific play style.
