Why does PVP suck now on Powertech/Vanguard?

Pre-5.0 or 5.6 or whatever it was, Powertechs and Vanguards in PVP were a blast to play. Now I keep dying every 40 seconds after I leave the spawn area. the 4v4 Arena suck as much as they would on any class, but now in Huttball, Voidstar, Novare Coast, Civil War, I can't not live(I dunno if that works :P)

I know I'm not level 69 yet but mid-bies is sucking right now. I really enjoy pvp, but when I pvp on my Vanguard/PT .. I just can't stop dying. I've studied guides, learned rotations that fit my current level but nothing works.

BioWare needs to fix this, I hate having a class I enjoy playing be so squishy I can't play on it

This class gas been squishy since they took the range away and forced PT/VG into melee range with crap defenses.

Yeah strangely in 5.0 it was like "oh let's make the tank capable classes have dps specs that are total glass cannons!"

And VGs got the hardest hit because they lost substantial range and have the worst DCDs.
