I've been doing groups mostly with sith juggs as tanks and I prefer that (as a healer) than getting stuck with a powertech. Maybe I've just been lucky... or I've just had bad experiences finding people that know how to play a powertech... dunno.
the discusion was about melee DPS vs rnged DPS not tanks if that helps
The only thing that should impact a players success/failure in pvpplayervsplayeris his/her skill not what they are wearing. Otherwise call it GvG gear vs gear, crunch the #'s in a calc, face-roll your keyboard, and go watch TV.polls by paulolesonhttp://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=164486pollhttp://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=164530

Yep. As it stands right now, 99% of the time, taking melee dps instead of ranged is gimping your party. Your healers will have to do more work, and your damage will suffer as they kite away from anti-melee mechanics. It's also more work on the tank, moving bosses around so melees won't eat cleaves or have to worry about standing in this aoe and such, when with ranged it's usually just a matter of turn and burn, tank and spank.
