Proposal
Revert Lancer (Pikeman) and Berserker (Swordsman) back to their original names.
Justification
The new names don't really fit IMO.
Motivation
These are my two favorite elite melee professions and the renames do not make a lot of sense to me.
SWG launch player here and these two professions were always my favorite elite brawler ones. I have to admit that I really don't understand why the names were changed here because in Star Wars lore there were actually Pikeman and Swordsman (obviously this is an EU/Legends game but still).

Was there a reason for the change?

This change was made to consistent with promoting our inclusivity goals, one of which included removing unnecessarily gendered terms like swordMAN. A similar effort has taken place through many real military services and more modern games. We evaluated many alternatives and aligned on these names based on the profession’s combat abilities, role, and fictional context. We have no plans to revert this change.
