the TTK subclasses outclassed the others (Destiny)

Objectively, the Nightstalker, Sunbreaker and Stormcaller are better then their counterparts in the majority of aspects in PVP. People still held on to broken Sunsingers for the grenades and rez, but really in a objective game type Stormcallers are the superior choice. Sunbreakers were so broken that bungie had to nerf them since that was all anyone would play in 6v6.

Bladedancers are the highest risk class, and now that blink has been nerfed into oblivion, it's only used for the bonus quickdraw perk and skip grenades. The super is the 2nd easiest to counter (gunslinger is the easiest). Stealth is still very limited and tough to use, as well as easily visible to scoped snipers and close in.

I would really like to see a return of blink to a useful jump. In my opinion, the nerfs to blink's cool down, weapon ready times and regeneration are what have pushed the envelope, along with the general primary range nerfs, that have lead to the dominance of snipers. It's just too risky to close the distance on a sniper. You are either in sniper range, or TLW all the time and ceed the initiative to the sniper.

As evidence, you see lots of 'nought titans with Twilight Garrison for the added mobility doing rushing these days. With Titan skating, TG, and Shoulder Charge they can close the distance with the least risk.
