According to a Live Chat with Creative Director James Ohlen, Lead Writer Daniel Erickson, and Lead Flashpoints/PvP and Operations Designer Gabe Amatangelo - hosted by Best Buy on their forums - the devs are aware of the problems Jedi Guardians/Sith Juggernauts are facing. The following question and answer come from that Live Chat, and if you would like to read all of the questions and answers for yourself you can head over HERE.

Guest-14: Any idea when the Sith Juggernaut/Jedi Gaurdian will be revamped (Georg promised they were up next for "additional attention")?

Gaming-BBY: >>James: We’re looking at them right now and the changes will be coming in soon after launch.

I think because so much of your power comes from the skill trees, for some of the classes it takes time to develop. Hard to balance everything in the low to mid levels, before u have very many of your skill points.

I'd like to see your sorc last long against my assassin; you don't get to cc him before he's in melee range

First off, don't play pvp if you're below 15, your advanced class just isn't developed enough.
playing as a melee tank you really need to pvp with some people. taunt, guarding, and blade ward get some nice pvp points and keep damage away from your pvp buddies. damage wise, if I recommend getting your offensive lightsaber form if you want to do solid damage as the melee tank class.

I'm a firm believer in the worst it is in the beginning, the better off you'll be in the end. I think a lot of people will gravitate towards the easier played classes at the early levels, but it's going to make them lazy. Where as someone who has to fight tooth and nail from level 10 will never have that false sense of security and will be better off for it. Plus it will make you that much more dangerous when you get your full tool kit at your disposal.

Hang in there. Pull yourself up by your boot straps and have at it. It will get better.

The CC isn't that bad overall in my exp., and I play Shadow so its not like people like seeing me next to them.

When people are higher lvls there is more CC, but there's also more ways to break it for most classes. Make sure you get in a habit of using your CC breaker(lvl 9) ability as well.

Pro Tip: Never use charge abiity to start combat unless you absolutely have to. Save it for the knockback, or post stun.
That's like telling Death Knights from WoW not to open with Death Grip (pulls people to you). Too much logic for forums.

Well been playing a lot lately, and found out Jedi Guardians get pretty solid. Once you get an aoe snare and a few talents they are pretty tough. I think its best to not pvp till 14 (as a Jedi Guardian) because thats where I got my defensive form, and sprint helps a lot. Nothing more fun than guarding a friend so they dont die too. In any case see you guys in game.

This just shows that you (and anybody who agrees) have no idea how 2.2K arena and rbg's in wow work.

At those levels, everybody has the same gear and are on an even gearing field. If you are talking about the welfare random bg players picking on folks in greens, that is a different story.

But do you think that someone capable of the highest levels of wow arena/rbg's isn't going to faceroll all over the average player in this game? really?

Situation awareness, positioning, knowlege of the other classes, timing, cd management, reaction time and the ability to use many many keybinds and modifiers are what make a player good at pvp. If you were bad at wow you are going to be bad at this game. it's the same type of game, different skin.

If you're a tank, absorb damage from other players instead of trying to 1v1.
