Why do people keep acting like this is a big deal? Their DOTS can be cleansed, and then they get no self heals anyway.

Nerf Operatives.
This just makes me laugh and laugh and laugh.

They can be easily reapplied as well, whats your point? And yes they do get self heals you dont even know what an annihilation marauder does.

Not even remotely. There is always a decent chance neither slashes give the proc, then again it will be cleansed, assuming you are still on target at this point.

Annihilation / watchmen NEVER stood a chance against a good scoundrel. 1 click away from negating their sustained dps.

Anni / watchmen is good against juggs and powertechs I guess.

Full madness isnt that bad if you know how to kite which you will be doing 100% of the time against melee letting your DoTs do the work. The only reason I cant win against a assassin 1v1 is because of their immunity to force attacks so I have to eat the 2k or so force lightning not able to attack or stun them.

His question was probably about the Deception Assassins.

hah, This.

Started playing my sorc in pvp more lately, I've soloed every class so far, that is, I have killed 1 of every class in a 1v1 so far, also madness spec. Does that mean that I can solo any class? no, that means that I happened to solo really bad players of every class at least once.

And yeah, sorc fighting is basically this: spec into stunbubble/rooted knockback, get attacked by enemy, stun, run away to heal, get attacked by enemy again, knockback with root, run away to heal, get attacked by enemy again, sap, run away to heal, see enemy coming towards you, keep running back and forth between objects to los enemy.

To OP, if you want a good 1v1 fighter, roll darkness assassin and probably lolsmash jugg in soresu, and by good 1v1 fighter, I mean you don't have to run away to heal(sorcs/operatives) the whole "fight", don't have to stealth out and run away to heal (maras/operatives), but can just stand there, take the enemy's hits, and pull off whatever rotation you want. I almost never use cloak and when I do it's usually only to interrupt a channeled move that can't be interrupted, like ravage or force lightning from other darkness sins, and only if overload is on cd.

Lastly, best way to tell if you're about to fight a crappy assassin/have an easy duel: assassin spikes you out of stealth as an opener, then pops his saber ward and shroud before you even get up, then electrocutes you as you get up, wasting all of his defensive cooldowns and stuns. I only pop force shroud if I'm about to be lolsmashed or if I have a ton of dots on me. I regularly see crappy assassins running to a node, not even being targetted, popping force shroud and saber ward wasting those cds. So if you want to be a good dueling assassin, don't do that.
Lightsabers, Force Choke, Force Lightning, Jedi Mind Tricks, what else could you want from an MMO? There may be other MMOs out there, but do they have Lightsabers?....Do They?

Once you're in the hole, what's a few more feet?
