Anyone who is in playing so far notice if there's a lack of a particular role in groups or flash points? Tanks? Healers? Both? Anything?
Pravus - Sith Warrior, Jem-Nor - Bounty Hunter, Ko-Ge - Jedi Knight, Mar - Sith Inquisitor

Based on the forums this week I would say that sane players who don't whine a lot will be significantly under represented in any kind of group.

I too wish they had decided to include sarlac enforcers, the gameplay looked brilliant.
Jedi Consular - Sage, with Force Powers and s--t!
Jedi Knight - Sentinel, double the glowstick for double the rave!

How can any role be under populated in SWTOR? You can always pull a companion out. Shoot no tank... just a sec pulling one out. Oh no we dont have a healer wait i have one in my back pocket.

It's still Early Access. Who knows? Who cares? Play what you like, as you like says I.

Historically MMOs will be short on Tanks and Healers. From all of the Beta reports, the current UI system is also very frustrating for healers. They have difficulty seeing the debuffs on people unless running in raid mode and there were other frustrations mentioned.

Until Bioware makes the UI more flexible, I'm personally expecting the Healer spec'ed characters to be the rarest.

Hmm Healer specs and Imp Agents from what I hear.
