So there are a lot of different threads about things that people don't like about the different classes. That being said, most of us do have at least one class that we have stuck with for a while. So, why?

What is it about your main class that keeps you playing?

What brought you to it in the first place?

How has your experience with your main class compared to any other classes you may have tried?

What would you like to see fixed/changed/added to your class in the future?

I like a lot of different classes because they're all fun. I have total alt-itis. But I think even when people complain about a class they still have fun playing it for the most part. If they didn't care they wouldn't take the time to complain on the forums, they'd just forget about it and reroll.

1. It's sheer awesomeness, that's why I keep playing it. Basically all the reasons why I chose it to begin with are why I keep playing it. The class has only exceeded my expectations, it's so much fun to play.

2. I've always liked Bounty Hunters in Star Wars lore. Not so much the characters from the movies, but the idea of Bounty Hunters themselves. Especially from a role-playing standpoint. I have a lot of fun playing as a light sided Bounty Hunter. I rolled with a Powertech because I wanted to try tanking for a change, and I liked the idea of being a beefy BH who can take a hit. Plus I love all the gadgets.

3. I haven't gotten far enough with my other classes to have a solid opinion on this one. I gotta say though I miss being able to shoot up in the air with Death from Above when I play my other characters.

4. Good question. I've never really felt like the class was missing anything, although it would be nice if us Powertechs got a 60 second CC.

1.The cool starship, the cover system, and the general look and feel of the smuggler class.

2. I actually started with the agent, and still have an alt i'm slowly leveling. But I picked the republic since open world pvp favors more targets for the underdog. But what drew me is still what is keeping me a smuggler.

3. With the cover system I died not even half the times I did as anything else. In fact the first time I died was a lvl 10 war front. As anything else I died to various mobs just within the first few levels. As a smuggler, even dps, I had almost no cool down time between mobs.

4. As a Scoundrel AC, and in general with all the non-force users, I hate how much melee distance is forced on us. One of the things that excited me about this game was the possibility to be a ranged dps/healer, or a ranged tank. Unfortunately as a scoundrel I'm forced into that 4m range. Even to be a trooper/bounty hunter tank i'm going to be in the 4m range. In the future I would like to see the non-force users moved back into the mid-range for combat. Even if this is just done by a lot of cc abilities that only proc in PvE.

Stuck with for a while? the games been out for like... a month

That said, I do think this is a cool topic, so here are my answers for my Tankassin..

What keeps me playing is that I LOVE tanking, and of the three tanking classes, this is the one I find the most enjoyable.

What brought me to it in the first place was the ability to tank with a Saberstaff, and also the ability to be a Force User, without having to take the boring heavy armor route.

On my other chars (of course they are all Dps...) I feel like a lil bug, who gets smushed by passing... anything. On my Tankassin I feel like a REAL Sith, able to take on groups of lesser beings without really having any trouble, and able to take on the strongest people the galaxy has to throw at me, and chop them into tiny lil chunks.

Oooh this is the burning question I would like them to fix the scaling on Dark Charge, when they buffed it, they removed even the tiny scaling it had previously, so now a nekkid level 50 gets healed for the same amount as a level 50 in full Rakata Tank gear, with every buff, Stim etc known to man... not cool.. Then they need to do something with Overcharge Saber, again in 1.1 they 'buffed' it, and now instead of increasing healing by 300% it lowers the ICD of the proc by 1.5 seconds.... making it officially the worst tank CD in the history of MMO's. It needs to be buffed again, and properly this time.
Proud Ownder of a CE Preorder Key aww yeah.
And for no real reason... here's a little spaceship!

Bump.

I do want to say that, in the simplest way possible, the main thing that keeps me playing my trooper is that I just love shouting "HAVOC SQUAD!" every time I run into a mob of enemies.

What is it about your main class that keeps you playing? BH- I love the story of being out for revenge to win a big tournament. I like that it feels right when i group with my companions its not like i have an annoying vete in my ear.

What brought you to it in the first place? Armour, tank, Boba Fett fan, cool ship and mako.

How has your experience with your main class compared to any other classes you may have tried? I have enjoyed my marauder as well the story and the game play especially so far but my BH just has a hold on me that goes beyond explaining its like I am the character i dont feel like its some one else. What I mean is when a sith talks its convaluded when my BH talks its logic which is perfect for my personality.

What would you like to see fixed/changed/added to your class in the future? Mako to stop being so confusing sometimes. On a quest she says its best not to betray our ali and she does not trust this person, so i agree and she gets a - 30 affection ***.
Just because you don't want it does not mean I should not have access to it.

Powertech > Marauder > Sniper > Commando > Shadow.

I have an alt of each AC(half reb, half imp) so I'm randomly playing different ones, but my only 50 is my merc.

The class story was pretty sweet, combined with wanting to get blizz, leveling with a buddy, and destroying trash packs with DfA made it a pretty fun class.

I was originally going to be a trooper, but my friend wanted to roll Imperial Agent so I decided the BH could be fun.

They all play quite a bit different. I've played them all some, and don't really want to go through each. I do wish my merc had been a powertech instead of a merc, and I had rolled my trooper as a commando instead of vanguard. I'm liking Vanguard more than my merc for the freedom of moment, while still keeping some ranged capacity.

I'm fine with my pyro merc as is. One thing I'd like is a talent to force my Combustible Gas Cylinder to proc the DoT(and the talented slow) as a pyro like Powertechs get in their talents. It's a 16% chance to proc, and other than my 25 sec jet boost(set bonus takes off 5 secs) it's the only thing I have to keep people from staying on me. Everything else is good enough for me.
