CC has a place in PvP I totally agree.

However the diminishing returns system DOES NOT WORK.


Being chainstunned to death is commonplace vs decent ranged players.

Wow I have never ever been chain stunned to death. Unless, you count jumping into the middle of 5 guys and getting toasted.

Discuss:
Well, since all classes have ranged abilities, fall back for a bit, heal, and return to the fight. I never thought "woah stunlocked" like DotA, or something. However, it is very easy for me a consular to get separation from melee classes, IF I have all my tools ready. It's surprising how well a force push, stun, DoTs combo works to give an HP advantage. Still, I like my survivability better than in Vanilla WoW, where as a mage, I could be stunlocked by a rouge and killed before I became unstunned.

My advice for you would be to stay with your team. If you run into a group of reds, expect to get stunned a lot. In PUGs, if they all burn their CC on you, well, you did your job. You have the most damage mitigating abilities. This should allow your team an edge, because CC timing is critical and if theirs overlap, it's wasted. The critical factor to your success, I think, would be to have backup and try to stay near corners/LoS blockers if practical.

I don't think diminishing returns are necessary in TOR's small warzones. I'm not sure which classes would have "unlimited spam" CC, but as a Sage, all of mine are on cooldowns of 30 seconds or more and I assume others are too.

As a side note, for the pvp scoreboard, they need a damage absorbed/CC absorbed tracker, as well as a trap damage absorber/trap damage instigator just for fun.

I like where PvP is at.

You must play against some terrible people. Not only have I been CC'd to death but I have, myself, CC'd people to death. I guess heavy armor probably helps.

Seriously though I know the resolve bar is not working properly, it's more than obvious. I also know that if it was working properly this wouldn't be an issue...so I'm not really that upset about it since I know they will fix it and probably fix it soon.

*Sigh*



This place has been infested with kids.


For the last time. Every class has CC's

Wether it be a stun shield or slow.


go take some time off and read a book or walk around somewhere maybe that will help you get your mind off it mate.

50 seconds talented, but since there's 8 Inquisitors on the other team some how I don't think it matters.

So then, ask yourself this.

How often have you noticed the times you should've been CC'd, but didn't because your resolve bar was full? It's easier to notice when you are stunned, but harder to notice you didn't, isn't it?

So how accurate is it when people are saying their resolve bar doesn't work for them? Because I know for sure I couldn't CC people with their full resolve bar. Clearly it's working to some extent. But I fear most people are only noticing when they're CC'd, and not when they countered one from resolve.
