"Ranged" classes

OK, it seems to me that ranged classes have a seriously unfair unfair advantage in PVP. Too many stuns, too many cheap shots, and other ranged skills that prevent these classes from being approached, including excessive damage mitigation, etc....

What I'm saying here is, what the hell happened to the FORCE? I mean the "other" star wars games all seemed to respect the power of a jedi. HELLO, LIGHTSABERS-THAT-CUT-THROUGH-ANYTHING??? What happened to that?

So, I think it's pretty clear I'm dissatisfied with jedi development in this game. To me, it's exactly the same as playing HALO with the melee sword. That's exactly what it is; except I don't get to pick up a weapon.

The story and lore are great...Thumbs up there. But Jedi are not really Jedi. just cannon fodder with glow sticks.

I'm not at level 50, I'm only level 26. But this frequent pattern of update gear, update gear, etc.... is old and boring. I want real skills INHERENT to the class that I play.

Relying on "the gear change" everytime I level is lame. The force should get incrementally better with each level. My "gear" should have very little to do with it.

Robe, lightsaber, I'm good because I have the almighty force. But that's not how it is... So I flag this as a bit of a detriment.

Dude Warriors struggle to stay on target in this game until they get most of their abilities.

If you are a jugg / guardian then you have force push and you are already half way there, as that resets the CD on leap if you are getting kited.

If you are a sentinel / mara hang in there, you are about to get force cloak.

Please, man it's all the *********** same. New "moves" new "gear". I got it. What I'm saying is much deeper than that. it has to do with being able to manipulate the physical world through the force. A jedi's skill should depend on how well he uses the force.

I'll say it again. Give me a lightsaber, robe, and the force. Then I'll be convinced I'm playing a Jedi.

Meh. As a fully min/maxed carnage marauder I don't have much issues with range classes. I actually have more trouble on my warhero sniper with melee than I do with ranged on my melee.

This game heavily favors melee, especially at max level. If you're having problems with range classes you're either low level or are very inadequate at moving your character proficiently. Don't worry there are other people like you that exist and they usually play healers/tanks. Try that.
Something pretentious.
