Don't worry about them. There a a lot of folks in this game who think if you haven't played a class for 1000 hours with BiS gear you can't perform a reasonable analysis of its strengths and weaknesses. I would counter that the fact they have played it to the point they have optimized gear makes them forget all the weaknesses that said gear has covered up.

Bottom line is your analysis is pretty much spot on. The SW is now and always has been a "tweener" in that it does a lot of things okay but nothing well. There is no role of the SW where you cannot find a specialist class that does those things better and with more impact. I like to look at the SW as a training class in that if you learn to play it well (for instance in Scout) then you can take those skills and translate them to a real RDPS class such as a BW and really kick butt.
Thank you for your response Aethilmar.

I did specifically start my post off by saying I enjoyed playing the class, and it does have some awesome moments.

Even though I rolled a slayer, and it's great, I couldnt help but come back to SW and keep trying.

Recelty I've seen a couple of Scout shadow warrior do pretty well in scenarios, Orcorci come to mind.

In casual scenario (and maybe premade but that's where assault shine too) you can have fun and make it work, I think.
I pretty much struggle in soloQ scenarios with assault, Scout can be a better "stand alone" build for that...

Edit. I'm not talking about ranked.
