Hey everyone!

Based on the nominations that many of you made in your nominations thread, the poll above highlights the top possible candidates to be your Class Representative. This poll will run until Monday, July 29th. At that point whoever has won the poll will be your new Class Representative! Around that time I will also post the schedule for each AC on when they will be submitting their top 3.

As a note, if for some reason you do not see someone who was nominated in the above poll it could be for a few reasons:
  • They declined the nomination.
  • They never responded to the PM to confirm interest.
  • They were never contacted as only the candidates who appeared to have a few nominations were reached out to.
  • They have a forum account which is suspended.

Again, please vote in the poll above by Monday, July 29th. Good luck everyone!

Is there a way to see the credentials of the nominated players? i.e. Do they play all specs effectively, do they pve AND pvp successfully? Parses and/or nomination 'speeches'? I don't doubt that these are good choices, but seeing as I really just know KBN out of all (and that is only from his presence on the forums), I feel very uninformed and uneasy about voting for or against players I just know nothing of.

You're like the only "watchman/anni is underpowered in PvP" denier in the game dude. I don't what you're trying to prove by posting on the forums saying "no no guys anni is fine, you're all just bad". Pretty much everyone either knows it should get at least a little PvP buff, or is alright with consigning it to PvE for some reason. If I were you, I especially wouldn't be saying it's fine in PvP (nor would I call out the nominees for not knowing their class), considering that you don't even break 1k DPS with it in any of your youtube vids. If you want generically call us out for being bad without any substantiation, I suggest you at least remove the link to your youtube channel in your sig to avoid being made fun of.

Let's be fair, I can only do that as focus haha. Maybe when I upgrade to above 10 fps I can do the same with watchman lol.

Not attempting to accomplish anything, this is going to happen whether I like it or not. But I can comment on how much of a joke this will be. The fact that I'm the "only one" to recognize anni/watchmans capabilities in pvp is a scary thought indeed. Especially compared to those who are up there on the poll. Create excuses all you like, but the spec is perfectly fine.

People with that same mindset are exactly whats going to ruin this whole opportunity. If you watch my videos, you'd see that early on not only was I undergeared severely, but that in PVP you are constantly moving, and therefore rarely put up high dps unless its a deadlock at an objective point, and are specificially going for numbers. Maybe thats nice in PVE, but in PVP the point is objectives, not numbers. A low dps also indicates that I actually kill people, and don't waste time beating on healers or other dps who simply shoot themselves back up. That is unless I'm the only person doing it, which isn't always the case, and as you can see in some of the individuals videos who are nominated above they generally have pocket healers on them the entire match and just go for kills/numbers, completely ignoring objectives. Thats not how you play a class, and it certainly doesn't represent skill.

One last point, my youtube videos are hardly an indication of what I do. They are put up there for fun. I often contemplated not uploading them just because of the difference in performance when the game is fps dipping, and made worse when fraps is fired up. The reason I haven't been uploading as much lately is due to SWTORs continued performance degradation coupled with fraps own impact on fps. (Which has a serious impact on performance as a player) If you would like to meet me in game perhaps, I can show you all about annihilation, we can see who bursts who down the fastest, and who will really be the one made fun of.

Which can easily be done given the circumstances of a match as outlined above. Nothing amazing there. High DPS does not = good player. It indicates an inability to execute your target. Gudarzz is a clear example of someone who would not do this role justice at all. Watching his performance on stream is enough to make one cringe. As I said before, this is a popularity contest, nothing more.

Not at all. I merely care about my class and am voicing my concerns that players who have absolutely no idea what they're doing are being chosen to represent it. I wouldn't even take the opportunity myself if it were given to me, I don't consider myself to be the best, but I know more than those who are listed above, and thats a scary thought.

LOL I declined the nomination to be a Guardian representative, since I don't play that class. I also don't have a Powertech. I play pretty much all of the others though, and I try to play them at a high level (jury's out on how successful I am). :-)

I could say the same thing about you. Every time I turn around, you seem to be mentioning something about raiding with YET ANOTHER class.

Most of these guys don't even know how to properly gear. For those that do have footage of their gameplay, they're either half asleep, or don't fully grasp the basic fundamentals on how to kill a simple target in pvp with their respective specs. (most of which are lolsmash). These are also players who erroneously whine that Annihilation isn't viable in pvp, or that carnage is too difficult to play, and stack accuracy while in rage spec. I can only imagine what its like for other classes.
I have parses up on torparse and on my server's leaderboard thread. My sentinel's name is in my signature. There are some videos of me floating around, but not many as my sentinel *is* an alt and I don't record myself.

I'm not sure exactly what credentials you're looking for. Screenshots of million+ damage warzones with high objective points? Videos of prospective representatives downing nightmare bosses? Testimonials from guild mates? Class representatives are to bring the *community* needs to the developers. Being a consistent forum contributor is exactly the qualification that matters. Knowing the class is important so you can communicate sanely and sift through what community questions are the most significant, but it's not like you need to be an Elite Warlord from Beyond to achieve that.

My vote goes to oofalong, just for the record. He was only nominated for marauder though, so I had to vote on those forums.
