Still a little unsure then, since I stated in the topic that it only might get balancing changes, and even specifically mentioned there were no definite plans yet. If you have suggestions for it then by all means feel free to post them, but that topic you're pointing out doesn't really give any indication that there was anything to expect.
Snipers are already pretty decent in PvP, players just don't really know how to use them properly so they're viewed as weak. I was able to PvP fairly well with a Sniper back in 2014, and that was before the last set of balancing changes (which included Charge Arrow being given a slow on targets with an RSX, a pretty big buff), so there's no reason they couldn't do well now other than being extremely difficult to play compared to other classes.
That being said there are some very minor buffs coming up for them in the next update, though they won't be affecting Blitz Beat.
