If you're playing a power based class, why wouldn't you spam your powers? Just stay away from me and my sniper with your shockwave spamming though.

That's the whole point of power-based classes, isn't it? I'd much rather see an Asari Adept spamming Warp + Throw the entire match than firing her pistol.

Depends on the power. Most of the time that's a good thing. But powers like shockwave/biotic slash/electric slash/flamer can be annoying for various reasons.

And chain overload can be an adept's worst nightmare.

If your not spamming your powers your either not playing the class effectively, or should be carrying a heavier weapon.

Depends on the type of spamming. If you're sitting up against a wall spamming a slash regardless of whether there is something on the other side or not, yeah, that's annoying. Or if you're wub-wubbing your team incessantly for no good reason.

Hey, I remember you from the Black 2 boards! In general, most power spammers never touch their gun. Heck, I'm the spammer who one-shotted a Brute with a well-placed and well-upgraded Incinerate! In addition, some powers are homing and some aren't. So it's hard to group spammers effectively.

It can if someone else brought it down to one bar of armor and primed it for a fire explosion...

*disclaimer, I know that this isn't technically "one-shotting". Please don't flame me*
