I still don't quite understand the system. I get all that's stated above, but my problem is what you didn't state. How does the resolve bar fill? Does it fill up the longer you're CC'd, then go back down? Do you have to wait near the end of the CC to break it to gain this advantage? Some answers would be appreciated. Although CC break is quite annoying

I do not understand why discuss, much less attach such useless topics like this.
There are tons of bugs, brake mechanics, and moronic UI, PvP disgusting because of this, and you dilute teorikraft about the use of skills. Skills can be anything that is not so important, the class balance in PvP is never perfect, some a class is usually dominant in a particular patch always, it's not a problem.
There are serious problems with PvP mechanics, so that does not implement the basic things without which the modern PvP can not be, people write about it here and you remove the whole topic, instead, attach a blank and uninteresting subject.

The first post is an awesome wall of text in order to help less experienced players. I appreciated that but i do not agree that system is fine. For a pvp game, no stun should allow you to receive damage and still be in stun. The most terrible thing what is happening over and over again is you are stunned, you get toons of damage and dead. my defensive ability with 2min cooldown doesnt make difference in most cases. So while im wathing my character doing nothing then receiving damage.. i can read some books, talk with wife, whatever.. is pretty much BAD SYSTEM FOR PVP..
Guild Wars 2 is comming - my hopes will be there.

The one you want to "ride out" if possible is the "mez" since they by definition cannot damage you without breaking it themselves.

Is the game broken or does it just have a few (lots) of bugs? Time will tell, but right now I am disgusted that a 2012 game (well, it should have been...EA responsible for the early release?) is released with so many game breaking issues. Sure, the story is cute and the single-player PvE is pretty decent (now that Taris is fixed), but PvP is beyond broken. PvP is unplayable pretty much, if insta-abilities take 2 seconds...nm...doubt BW reads here.
This sounds like a underpowered PC issue, I have NONE of these issues and very low lag even on crappy hotel internet connections when travelling over the Holidays. Now I do have a very nice Gaming laptop by Alienware.

My son has a decent middle of the line HP laptop that works great for most things but he gets the odd stuttered lag (not "minutes as you quoted above, but very noticeable) and it appears to be the mobility chipset his graphics card in the laptop uses. his lag is most profound indoors if that makes any sense.

2. If you are in a CC that turned your full bar white and are CC'd again before coming out of the previous CC, you get no immunity. Theoretically you can be CC'd indefinitely since the full white resolve bar will never start to tick.
Played another 20 or so matches last night....both of these still hold true.

Even though I detest them for the most part, I played a bunch of WZs last night to test the Resolve system myself and I noticed the above as well. Once the Resolve bar goes full, it just doesn't kick in right away. Seemed like more than a second lag to me, but then again, in combat one second can feel like an eternity. It's functionality is definitely buggy in this regard and I reported it with a screenshot included.

My recommendation to all who are giving the Resolve system a worthwhile test is that you bug report any findings. Just posting anecdotes on the Forums won't help the Devs in the slightest.

That said, I haven't experienced any of these CC spam issues in open world pvp. Those fights usually go much smoother and have lacked any of the CC spam problems I've experienced in WZs.

This is a huge point of contention for me. As a Vengence Juggernaut I have no damage mitigation abilities which work while stunned. Saber Ward doesn't help - can't parry while stunned. Endure Pain doesn't reduce damage taken and usually leaves the user with 1HP 10 seconds later.

Even in Soresu Form I am usually dead or dying by the time my resolve fills up IF it ever does.

Resolve on paper is an awesome system, but it needs some adjusting in practical implementation. It can't be balanced around "using mitigation abilities" to survive a stunlock when different classes have different abilities.
Social features; cantinas, player housing, guild cities, these are what SWG did right.
PvP specific gear is the best way to kill PvP by segregating your player base.
