This is nonsense. Big numbers from any class requires time on target which means healing. More healing is more time is more damage. Having said as much, a good smasher WILL dominate the field and the score board. And because its an AOE, guaranteed crit with a DMG multiplier, stacking multiple smashers is not only imbalanced, it's flat out broken. No other reasonable conclusion can be drawn.

Dominate the score board sure, but not the field.

PT Pyro is still the number 1 damage dealer in the field. The number of smashers (respecs+ original specs+new rollers) in pugs is causing most of the complaints. You can call it broken, but it's just popular. Before 1.4 rage was pretty much a jugg only spec. The changes made it viable for an already powerful AC with a huge population, maras.

An adjustment will happen, but I doubt they will break the class. The dps will still be there.

This is correct!

Also, forum damage numbers are always grossly inflated, but the fact is that smashers dominate the total damage output atm.

smash deals some of the highest damage in the game. u saying other pvp'ers suck means that ur probably a newbie that uses ur smash jugg and can't handle the pressure of actually having a challenge fighting someone without smashing and killing him/her in 5.67secs

Food for thought.... a hybrid spec shadow and alot of other build/classes can put up alot higher damage numbers than focus spec guardians and juggs. You can balance the classes but you cant balance the people playing them
we have a while before the expansion comes out. i will not be waiting months for a class balance.

Definitely not the biggest balance problem I've seen in an MMO... maybe over reacting a little considering the time line? It's not like it's been this way since release and the dev's have addressed it somewhat.
