Well it's situational, and I have been insta-breaking chokes lately to avoid smash building, but even Smash might not be so much of an issue if the Resolve issues was not so god-awful at the core of the mechanic. Same thing goes for bubble stun, "teams of stunlocking operatives", stun-range nerf, etc, etc..
Yup I agree with you.
That's why I like specs like Deception assassin and gunnery merc because you can lower the time on your breaker by 30 seconds. May not seem like much but it helps you get out of sticky situations.
Specs like tactics vanguard and vigilance guardian / jugg should be able to aleviate some of this but they just need a SMALL touch up.
