Sages/Sorcs are easy money.

Shadows/Sins are a good fight (especially tanks).

Guards/Juggs are tough fights.

Sents/Maras are the top-end of 1v1 of ALL classes. You have to KNOW how to fight them and all your CD's have to be available to you. Standing too close to them can get messy really fast.

This pretty much says it all.

It could just be that I'm still in the 10-49 bracket, but I play a mostly-shield tech PT, and the only people who can ever give me any real trouble in a 1v1 are marauders.

http://www.torhead.com/skill-calc#301hRMrdzroMZMcrzo.1 is my current spec, and I'm working up to http://www.torhead.com/skill-calc#30...zrRMZMcrzoZb.1 (haven't decided if I'm going to add the 6% shield chance or 9% aim yet)
45% more Maximum than the leading Aaron!

The only thing that kills rauders are rauders... fact

this will likely change soon as the nerfherders are all complaining about them now that ops and BH have gotten beaten to a pulp.
Remember this: Noobs have the most fun, they gain joy from things you disdain. They find value in that you find worthless. At the end of the day they have more fun per hour than any elitist I have ever known.

Funnily enough, I've been beating my head against the wall trying to kill my server's Juggs, while the Marauders have been falling to me. That's probably just because they're flavor of the month, though, so there are a bunch of new 50s in low gear, without a lot of practice just yet. Meanwhile, one of the biggest PVP ******es on my server (full Warhero, of course) is a Jugg. When I'm on his team, I just use target-of-target to help him burn down his enemy, and it's obscene.

But yeah, I generally agree with the quoted post. Even when a Shadow/Assassin attacks me out of stealth, it sucks a bit, but I have more trouble with operatives/scoundrels doing the same thing.

Bounty Hunter is too generic; PTs are solid and can compete with any jedi. Mercs are bantha fodder for everyone except commandos.

Don't do it, unless you are either captain uber player or just like to get your butt kicked all day long. My Merc was my main toon and my first to reach 50. Pre-50 was a lot more fun. After 50, PVP is usually less fun than banging your head against a brick wall.

My assassin, marauder, or sniper - all are still fun and I can usually place in the top 3 in most Warzones. On my BH I am almost always dead last on my team. I have tried all three trees (pyro seems to be the only one remotely worth it).

I do not have fun playing BH anymore and will prob not be logging him much at all until there are MAJOR improvements.

IMHO don't even bother with it unless u want to have a another toon to craft with or just like to punish yourself...

Wrong. My guildmate wins his 1v1's quite often.
