Why are people in Cover non-interruptable?

I don't get this Mechanic. With Snipers and Gunslingers able to stay in cover, and be able to be NOT knocked out of cover, they don't have to deal with any problems that the other 14 advanced classes have to deal with: interrupts.

Seriously, Snipers need to be either interruptable, or all of their cooldown abilities need to be cut by 2-4 seconds. At the moment, a single sniper has so many cooldowns, it can take on two people alone without a healer. I simply cannot justify a single reason why Snipers and Gunslingers cannot be interrupted while in cover. Either that, or all people to jump to them. Let them keep their immunity to knockbacks, but, for balance's sake, remove that completely uninterruptable buff they get.

The can be knocked out of cover with your knockback (unless Entrench is active). Play the class before you complain.

You can also cc them when entrench is not active....

Good ones are good, and I pick apart the bad ones....

OP, you do know your AC has the tools to be a direct counter to them right?

Oh and please L2P...

Yeah unless you are balance/madness you should be fine. Deception has the burst and darkness has the rootbreaker with slightly less dps.

Seriously, this is the best way to learn how to counter a seemingly OP class. If opponents of a certain class frutrate you, roll one and the goods will quickly teach you all their weaknesses.

That's how I learned how to pick them apart. Once I learned the signs, and moved my Target of Target bar to be more visible, I could soft counter alot, even as a hybrid guardian.... I am more than sure they appreciate eating there own orbital strike,ambush,TD,etc... I save it just for those moments.....

This thread is funny because the sin's were all saying that gunslingers/snipers were the counter to their class in their thread.
