Most FUN class to play (Discussion)

Most fun class for me is the juggernaut. Played Inquisitor; the game felt like easy mode. All the gunners feel like they use nerf guns. Juggernaut is a challenge, and you have to use tons of skills to be good. Inquisitor can mash just one skill to kill everything. I don't like playing the easier-to-use classes :3

Id say Smuggler is tied with Bounty Hunter for the sheer fun of watching the Combat Animations.

Tropper is just plain awesome.

Consular is fun & interesting.

Sadly what should be the games signature class, the JK is bland, dull, boring , weak & rubbish at PvP.
The Force will be with you, always.

For me its Trooper.
By far the best storyline of the classes I've played, and I think trooper has some of the coolest companions. I dont think they are dull ? Elara Dorne seems like a real uptight person at first, but her personal conversations are quite good, and I love her imp accent. M1-4X is also awesome, his undying thirst to kill imps and comments are really funny. And last but not least Tanno Vik, who's also a great companion.
Im playing as a commando DPS, and using Elara Dorne as healer and Im pretty much unstopable ^^
I've tried using M1-4x and then done the healing myself, but I find the enemies go down faster if Elara just keeps me up and let me do the dmg.
And the BT-7 Thunderclap is one of the coolest ships in the game imo.

Next in the line would prolly be JK for me, mostly because... Well its a "classic" jedi.
And I love T7 and Kira. Though I dont find myself quite as hooked on the storyline as with the trooper, and I also find it a bit hard playing with the companions I like. Im playing as guardian, and even though hes defence specced, he feels quite weak without a healer by my side. At least compared to my trooper. And also the dps is kinda low, so with a healer companion it takes "ages" killing, again compared to the trooper.

The best storyline IMO is the Sith Inquiz storyline.

So Sith Inquiz could be the most fun to play (who doesnt like electrifying your opponents anyways???)

Jedi Cons is also a very strong Storyline and class

Imp Agent has an amazing storyline but its class is less effective then some others (Its more defined as "here is what your good at" where as other classes have wider ranging abilities)

Trooper is a very enjoyable class to play and its storyline is very militaristic and very well done!

Then we have the Bounty Hunter
Im only on act one (just left Droman Kaas) and the Storyline has been pure unadulterated CARP.

Terrible storyline, boring and mundane as they get
Add to that the Bounty Hunter starts on THE WORST STARTER WORLD THERE IS
I mean, there simply is nothing exciting about Hutta.
Tython has its ruins and Jedi Temple
Ord Mantell is at war and it looks it
Korriban is simply amazing with its old ruins (even if Bioware did totally screw up The Sith Sorceror Naga Sadow legacy by moving his remains from Yavin V to Korriban and having him represent Sith Warriors when he was a Sith Sorceror who utilized Battle Meditation and didnt engage in open combat).

Hutta though is depressing, uninteresting, bland, and void of any appealing characteristics

So with all that going against the Bounty Hunter

Once you get the skill "Death From Above", no other class is as much fun to actually play!

All the classes have better storylines
All the classes (except for Imp Agent) have better starting worlds
And heck, All the classes have better starships

But NONE OF THEM are as fun to just go out and kill stuff play as a Bounty Hunter.
In regards to lessening F2P and Preferred restrictions
In GAMING, as in LIFE,
You get what you pay for
No game restriction is so dire that $15.00/month will not eliminate it

Just on actual combat, the BH. Just big explosions and blasts of fire all over the place, you can hear another BH fighting from a long distance away by the constant muffled thuds of their missiles and bombs going off. It's also very hard to run out of their resource in a single fight unless you do it on purpose. They can just go all out from the start. The trooper I've played just as much and it really doesn't capture the same feel, the plasma/electricity stuff isn't as exciting, nor are the rounds, and it also seems like I run out of ammo a lot faster than my BH hits the heat cap.

The Knight/Warrior is crippled out the gate with the requirement to build up resources at the start of a fight and the longish CDs on their "free" abilities.

The Shadow/Assassin I only played a little bit but their tiny energy bar and huge costs is a pain. They can use like two abilities before running out of energy.

Sorcerer is probably second place, they have a huge energy bar that never runs out in normal fights, and they throw all sorts of lightning and cool looking "dark" effects around. Not as impressive as the BH's explosions, but much more exciting than the Sage's pebbles. Speaking of which... "I'm going to throw pebbles and dust at you until you die" was not what I imagined the class would be like.

Lastly, the Smuggler/Agent is so weird and diverse among specs it's hard to pin down. I put a lot of time into Operative, and it's just a really messed up class, the healing tree is nice but the whole vibroknife system is, well, bad/unfinished. The Sniper/Gunslinger is a lot more fun, but without stealth it feels like it's missing something IMO. What kind of agent/sniper can't stealth?

If Jedi Knight/Guardian is the least fun to play I'm insanely excited to try the other classes considering how enthralled I've been with this class.

Ladies and gentlement this is the cognitive dissonance of your typical FANBOY

If I buy a car without working tail lights I am going to complain. If I buy a video game, no matter how good it is, I will complain if I get constantlydisconnected or has a really bad story part( example: Sith Inquisitor story on Nar Shadda was the worst writing i've seen in a video game)

I have played every master class and some multiple times on both sides now till level 16+.

Most fun was a IA operative.
Least fun was both master class of Jedi knights and Sith Warriors.

Strongest class was Sage/Sorc by far.
Weakest was Knights and Warriors.

I just finished my last class which is the sage. Saved it for last bc everyone plays this class. From level 10 I pull atleast 150k damage a warfront. And every warfront im thrown in with mostly level 50s. All single target damage, and I heal 25% of the time.
No one knows what it means, but it's provocative. It gets the people going.
