It also helps that your class gets an ability that makes you immune to CC for 20 seconds out of every minute. I'm less frustrated on my Vigilance Guardian with Unremitting (or my Gunslinger, actually) than on my, say, Vanguard.

So you're still having fun with SWTOR...Good on ya mate! (not Aussie, I just like to say that phrase because it's awesome)

I still have fun playing to be sure, but obvious fail is obvious. This game was its best at 1.1.5. Been going steadily downhill with each subsequent Patch since. As a PvPer, I don't have much to be thrilled about in a year's time. Among the list of disappointments; Ilum, RWZs, just one new WZ, and combat that has been deteriorating dramatically since 1.2.

Now I'm ordinarily a glass is half full guy so I'm still holding out hope BW will get their poo-doo together. But I've completely lost confidence in them. They clearly don't know how to wield the Force. They are like the Biggs of gaming. You totally like them because they are friends with Lucas and can do some fancy flying, but they just end up flaming out.

No i don't play a smash jugg or a mara etc... I play a sniper and i have 0 complaints. People just need to learn to synergize and play off their team members strength and weakness'

Am i the only one who feels the game is fine? Has the human race lost its will to adapt? :-\
I am assuming you played WoW and do not anymore .... well why ....did you not like the direction of the game...so you just jumped ship....I mean is that not the ultimate expression of "crying over a game"?

Woah, what happened to you? Did it finally hit you that for every "QQ" there's a player leaving the game?

yeah i officially left the game also. probably more to do with burnout then complaints tho. I also left day 1.2 was released but got bored of Tera so came back. Doubt I will actually come back this time. Still have like 50 days on sub but I cant even bring myself to log in right now

I took the PvE path instead and found myself a nice guild. I won't venture into a warzone until they've fixed this mess.

Yea I dont really get the QQ over this patch either. Bugs happen and will get fixed, I do not get stunned more personally on any of my characters. Good players/teams already timed their stuns and bads are bads a stun or two more wont help them. I love the changes to my sage, merc, and vanguard. My mara I dont really play other than to do pve dailies so I havent tried the new rage, but its sounds boring even if strong. Anyways I am surprised to see some of the folks that are complaining, but I get we all have different perspectives on things.

While changes to sorc and merc are definetely a step in the right direction, the basic flaws of PvP in this game did not have changed.

- In the DPS area
For RWZs, the sheer amount of burst provided by marauders and pyrotechs and the streamlined design of these classes make them dominate the meta game, even after 1.4 changes. If you want ranged option, go sniper. Sorcs and mercs are still not 100% viable in the current RWZ meta game.

Who the hell asked for a smash spec streamline/buff? They can argue that they are streamlining every spec in the game, but why didnt they streamline, for instance, the lethality spec for OPs or the TK spec for sages? Why spend developer time on a spec that already worked decently?


- In the tanking area
In the current meta game, full tank specs arent viable, except for ball carrier.
In the current RWZ meta game, with hybrid tank specs / gearing, the sheer overpoweredness of tankasins leave the other tanks in the cold.


- Healing area
1.4 is a step in the right direction for sorcs and mercs but the sheer overpoweredness of the sawbones tree still leaves the other healers in the cold. Sawbones can do anything the other 2 healers do BETTER and with less amount of player effort.


PS: while i am a great defender of the cheapness of ptechs, i dont agree with the "nerfs" to the tree, i dont agree at all. Reducing the slow to 30% just makes them easy prey for tankasins and warriors, while the ptech is still faceroll OP in the meta game against healers, especially sage healers. Ptech is now officialy a out of whack tree, too easy prey for melee, too easy to faceroll healers, they should work on making the ptech more balanced (less faceroll burst with more streamlined survivability) they did the exactly opposite.

This is funny stuff...I dont doubt you dont understand why all the tears...Your playing the AC that cannot be leapt, pulled and has the Longest CC immunity in the game.....This is kinda a given that the resolve changes havnt affected you as badly as the other AC's that have zero CC immunity.....can get leapt, and pulled...and now this happens in a chain...Its sooo fun.

Meanwhile the sniper does not experience any of this....Not to be a smart alec but....Hello captain Obvious!
