I'd hate to leave you hanging, then. Very well. You're absolutely right. The Sniper is one of the best kiters in the game, but this is because his gameplay style REQUIRES kiting in order to be effective. The fallacy in your argument is that you assume Snipe is good at clearing crowds when spammed (hint: it's not). The only characters that can claim any really useful crowd-clearing capability with their basic attack are guys like Enforcer and Han-D. NOT Sniper. A Sniper could POSSIBLY clear a Jar of Ants by jumping around like an idiot and spamming Snipe. He would just do it so painfully slow you might as well give up rather than move on to the next stage. I mean, let's not forget. Time is kind of an issue. Admittedly if you're already at "HAHAHA" difficulty and you're not really going to improve anymore (already at Temple of Elders with a whole can of whoop-ass items), then time is no longer an issue. At this point the issue becomes the simple fact that it's unbearably BORING. So, I guess you're right. Situationally.
