Only 3 advanced classes can CC?

Just to clarify (as I play a sorceror), all Inquisitors get the Whirlwind CC ability. It starts out as only lasting 8 seconds, I believe. If you then take the Sorceror advanced class the Whirlwind hold time upgrades to 60 seconds. The cooldown on the ability is also 60 seconds, so it is easy to know when the held target is about to be released.

I can't speak to the hold abilities of any other classes, sorry.

The Bounty hunter Equivalent for that is Concussion Missile and its only available for Mercenary AC.

Jet Boost is the Merc version of Concussive Charge, which isn't a CC, its a knockback.

I'm biased as I'm a Gunslinger (And I do have CC, slice droid) but shouldn't the pure DPS classes be the only ones with CC? After all, we should be absolutely NEEDED for something.

Every class in this game is packed with utility, you guys are the only ones that get "bloodlust" style group wide buffs. Every group at 50 will be looking to score a Gunslinger and/or Sentinel. In fact, unless we get a "sated" style debuff then people will prob fill up all their DPS slots with the two classes. The healers can CC, so why bring a Scoundrel?

Armor Pen Debuff ? A Gunslinger / Sniper is totally needed.

Correct but Sage/Sorceror get a 60 second one, while Shadow/Assassin only get an 8 second one.

As someone already said, an Imperial Agent SNIPER also has Slice Droid... which in fact is a 60 second CC that has no cooldown. We can repeatedly CC droids over and over without having to wait for a cooldown but can only have one CC'd at a time. The only downside is it only works for droids and only one at a time.
