Found out some more
IA flash bomb is 60 second CD, smuggler one is 90 seconds....
Smuggler Sab charge takes time to get to the target (like Project) IA version is just instant.
So you have stated that they are not mirrors, and then you have pointed out that the smugs ability is on a longer cd......then you go on to say how the diff in CD makes up for the abilities. Are you just looking for stuff to cry about?
Most PvPers would take a shorter CD anyday for a move that does a similar effect.
True mirrors would homogenize the game. I like the diversity and I hope they keep it.
Edit: While true mirrors would make balancing the game far less complicated, I dont want to be a IA/Smuggler...i just want to be an IA.
