This is going to sound weird, but as a Sorc healer I find the easiest class for me to go up against 1vs1 is a Gunslinger/Sniper. Why is that?
Heh, I don't know how you can kill a Sniper with a Sorc healer
BUT my favorite targets when I play my Sorc DPS are Snipers/GS.
Of course, when I play my sniper, my favorite targets are Sorc/Sages - go figure.
DPS Sorc/Sage can easily od a Sniper/GS, Sniper/GS can easily interrupt and od a Sorc/Sage healer.
Back to the OP's post, I agree that adjustments are needed (but not necessarily the ones he suggests).
Of course, Bioware does not listen to the community nor do they read the forums.
The "world's best PVP team" knows better even if they never play the game themselves.
Every change they made to PVP since launch clearly reflects that.
Every patch degrades the experience a little more for us.
So, I'm sorry to say but these balance threads are a HUGE WASTE OF TIME!
