If I am wrong about this im going to hide in a cave.
I have just verified it by staying out in explosions myself. Deaths by pylon explosion DO count towards the enemy score.

The explosion is just part of the next round.
Faction imbalance is the scientific term for saying player skills mature at a later age than that of the intended audience of a certain faction.

Yeah that much was obvious if there was anything.

Well damn. I really enjoyed sitting there watching everyone run for mid, telling myself they were all wasting their time.

Well there are still some legit tactical reasons for staying out in the explosions. Just be aware this costs your team some points.

To offer a little comfort, before doing this guide, I, too, thought dying to the explosion doesn't count.

I'll do my best to fix it, thanks for the notice.
One thing to note is that when you open your character menu and go to the «Defense chances» section, it opens a tooltip with «Melee/Ranged/Force/Tech» separated. No class has a base resist chance to F/T attack so it will usually stay empty, but those buffs that I previously quoted increases all four stats at the same time. (It's really badly explained )
Another thing to note is that it will always display the highest of these four stats as your «Defense Chance» stat. Hence you'll see 75% displayed on your defense chances as a marauder under Ruthless Aggressor.

Glad that I was able to help you !

Everyone move over to imp side ! Rep side won't get such a detailed guide !

I'm not at all surprised that this guide is merely for imp classes only ...

And people wioll answer me : You know that there are moirror classes, right ?"
And I'll answer to that : For mirror clkasses, why wasn't that guide made for the Rep side in the first place ? You said it doesn't matter for which side it's made, because they are mirror classes ... What's so ... bad ... about Rep classes that people simply refuse to do guides for THAT side WHEN they do have the choice because of mirror classes ?

Woah...that actually blew me away with the level of detail. I wasn't expecting anything close to that. I'll go through and read it all at some point. Well done!

Still some tank abilities and tank passives that do offer this though.

Person who wrote the guide plays Imp side and it’s up to the writer to choose which classes to include.
If it’s more comfortable for him to use Imp terms then so it is in Imp terms. No need to be bicker...
Also you are welcome to write a guide yourself using Rep classes.

FYI I am Rep player mostly.

There isn't any passive ability that increase your F/T resistance, this would be way to OP in pvp, giving you permanently a small chance to completely avoid a cc for example, the tank passive increase your shield chance, who aren't exactly the same, since you'll always take damage even when you shield an attack
There is, afaik, only one tank ability who does increase F/T resist chance, the explosive fuel on tank PT.
Shroud increase F/T resist chance by 200% also but it's not really a tank only ability

Edit : There is actually two other ability, I had to log on my guardian to check but Blade Barrage increase F/T resist chance by 6% after it's use for 6 seconds, as well as Riposte, who increase Force/Tech resistance by 5% after its use for 10 seconds.
