Are you playing some new class in the game that doesn't have CC of their own?

Just an afterthought, I have played to battlemaster twice, there's an incredible amount of skill on SWtoR pvp. Unlike wow PvP SWToR emphasizes geography as well as understanding class abilities and having gear.

Almost every skill had a use though, they weren't redundant.
i see what your saying, ill try to restate what i meant a little clearer because wow had similar ****

in this game each useful spell is vastly significant against just about every class

while u may have 50 keybindings how many would u say you use on every target you face?
in wow the number would be 50 key bindings to mabey 10 that you use all the time.

this game i have 30 keybindings and probably around 25 that i use against every class that i face.
while i have less bindings i use the "situational" ones much more often i would in wow because the situational spells in this arnt as specific.

What class are you playing Cuberrt?

Nvm Infiltration Shadow, I see. In Aion...I was using 10-20 for each encounter 1v1. If it were a 1v2 or 1v3 I was using more. You're playing melee so not being able to weave severely diminishes how good you could be. You're basically restricted to skill spam. As a ranged class, weaving wouldn't really matter since there aren't any def buffs that require auto attack removal and there are no godstones to proc.

^^This

It's one of the most skilled game out, and most balanced game ever released. This is why the forums have so many cries...

The more skill involve, the more people who think they have skill but actually don't cry.

Okay...continue crying...

...

The only legitimate complaint is that Ilum a failure to this point. Not surprising. World-pvp is a romantic idea in forum goers hearts w/ greatly exaggerated tells of how great it used to be in 1997...

idk why people cry about expertise. It took me 2 days of playing to get full Centurion armor and a champ saber which gives you like 505 expertise. The skill comes when i crush BM geared baddies 1v1 and lose maybe 1k hp.

@OP You whine about getting stunlocked...well you have to be fighting at least 2 people to get stunlocked and you have to not know how resolve works. I've 2v1'd a few people but its something that should be rare and hard to do, you have to time your stun breaker and in my case resilience(force shroud for sith, anti force/tech abilities basically) perfectly to do it.

You're not a super special (insert class here) even if your story quests say you are, you're just another peon, and when you pick up the huttball and you get smashed by 8 players...thats what should happen if you dont have help.

as an infil simply "skill spamming" would be terrible why would i throw my project force breach on someone with a defensive CD up or even waste force on them? i wont i will use saber strike until its down and then when it is down i have a full stacked force breach and a full stacked project waiting for them.

there are plently of situations where i dont use my optimal DPS rotation as there are for any class in any pvp games.
