Play a ranged class and don't use roots when someone is white-barred, and see how fun it is.
Snares/roots are part of the kiting/anti-kiting game mechanic. The devs aren't going to change this w/o completely rebalancing all classe, and that's not going to happen.
I do, I play a Commando and Vanguard only. CC's are out of **edit**ing hand. Roots NEED to build Resolve, Resolve needs to last longer, CC break needs cooldown to be cut in half. Roots/snares should reduce damage by 75%.
