And they actually share that opinion. Proof:

Step 1:

Step 2:
In the lower search bar type:
Wait... DOT -ticks- interupt capturing objectives in PvP?
Step 3:
???
Step 4:
Profit.

Seriously. Cleanse is there for a reason.
You just turned Voidstar into an AOE spam fest that highly favours zerg groups.
It will turn into a game of 'time the respawn doors', who gets lucky on the respawn timer, wins the game! Fun!

Because running around dotting everyone is for pros?

Why don't you actually be pro and wipe everyone at the door so they can't aoe the door and win the game like a boss?

It will actually turn into a game of who has the better pvp group who can kill the other side and live themselves. This means that groups with healers, a tank to guard, and good dps will have the advantage. There is no real problem to this because void star really was the more death match style wz where killing the other side fast enough will win you the game. Welcome to the world of focus firing, assisting, and guardbots being useful.

What's more pro, the dotter, or the GROUP of players camping doors/turrets who can't figure out how to deal with it?

Pretty soon bads will forum rally around the idea of nerfing all damage while capping, because swtor pvp is too hard.

difference with AoE spam and DOTs spam...care to elaborate on that one...oh yeah...AoE spam the enemy NEEDS TO ACTUALLY BE THERE...how can you even think DOTs interrupts are ok...even without them it is soooooooooooooooooooooooooo easy to interrupt an individual from planting...only difference is YOU NEED TO BE THERE..."jeez how stupid is that, i need to physically be there to stop an individual from doing something...that lame"

The dots are still ticking after you die, they just no longer interrupt, which they should not anyway...btw i roll a DOT marauder so this is not biased...its common sense
My beats your

Because the Sorc/Sage has a 15 second, instant cast, no cooldown DoT that can be speced to last 21 seconds. Not to mention that only 3 classes can get rid of this DoT: Sorc/Sage, Assassin/Shadow (1 min CD), and Scoundrel/Operative (1 min CD). A number of other classes have shorter-length DoTs (6-10 seconds), but that is easily enough time to grab a side speeder and fly down to the side points on Alderaan.
