You are correct, it wasn't just me. But the healer didn't vastly outgear the place...some 69s and augments, but at ~28k health, hardly overgeared. Everyone did their jobs, and nobody was dumb.
My point wasn't that I was uber-special...it is that CCs are mostly only needed to make up for bad tanks or healers, or if both are really undergeared.
If you are wearing BM or BM+ gear then you are out gearing the place.
