It's the same as resilience which imo ruined pvp in WoW. All it did was stop the dragon slayers from pvp'ing with their dragonslaying gear.

Congratulations, you can move on to step 2 now that you've acknowledged that fact.

Clearly you need to roll as a sorc bh or sage then you can claim to be all leet. This is marketed as a casual game to casual gamers so I would not expect them to put much effort into the pvp side of things beside the rankings they already said they were going to include. If after all the time mmo's hasd been around they have not gotten around to making pvp viable then they clearly don't want to be bothered.

I will admit stuns and cc are out of hand in this game in mass pvp.... However in 1v1, 2v2, or 3v3, stuns/cc can be a HUGE advantage if used at the right time... And if a baddy uses them at the wrong time its hillarous.

Remove expertise and assassins/shadows will 1-2 shot people.

Not much skill in that.

while the lets say 10% damage done would get evened out by the 10% dmg reduction, this does not take into account the 10% healing increase

so yea once everyone has equal gear the dmg and def **** evens out but the healers still heal for 10% more so it is not a useless stat.

This game has a fair amount of "skill" involved, it's just that outside of 1v1, it turns into a focus fire affair/dps more than skill. It's Biowares fault for ramping up damage/heals with rather simplistic mechanics and aiming for fast paced pvp.

Outside of 8v8 warzones, pvp is nothing more than a zerg fest. The game scales pretty poorly.

Don't use you break free until you resolve bar is WHITE, then you have 15 to 20 seconds of immunity. Snare however doesn't affect this which sucks.

I have seen people get the ball in hutt ball and with force speed be able to make it from just past middle to scoring while using their immunity from a correctly used break free.
