Shadow tanks stands no chance in a 1 vs 1 match, even with 25 k health the amount of damage I take with full elite pvp survival gear, why don't tanks get a rebound counter ability? instead we have debuffs and a four second stun?

You should have a look on how Pyrotech plays against Shield Tech.

Go dps gear

Edit: I think juggernaut tank in tank gear will not have a chance vs dps assassin, full geared tanks can buy only some time

The idea of a Shadow tank in dps gear seems abit unjustified, since tanks should stick what they are good at, but apparently the tank spec in pvp is broken until Bioware does something about it.

yes easy to heal if there is a healer around, if they stand on there own without one it becomes a problem especially against a dps spec

A sin tank build in full dps gear is pretty godly for 1v1's. The only thing that's going to consistently beat it is... What you're complaining about in this thread.

Like I said the tank spec is broken in pvp, which is why tanks are switching over to dps gear instead of tank gear

U mean dps spec is broken in pvp, which is why dps are switching over to some tank gear and go dark charge.
