Either 1 the enemy team was filled with Sages or 2 the enemy team was filled with Sages and my team was filled with Sorcs. I mean its time to thin the herd a little BW and NERF THESE CLASSES pls. TY.

This is most certainly not the case on my server, the current "Every other player" class or the commonly stated "Flavor of the Month" is BH/Trooper, in both the 1-49 bracket and as new 50's in the 50's bracket I see far more new Vanguards/Commandos on the Republic side and Powertech/Mercenaries on our side.

Point in fact, if I see less than 2-3 Powertechs/Vangaurds alone per match...I am suspicious. This seems to be the new most common single class, oddly enough, at 50 we've had a massive surge in Sentinels (not marauders oddly enough) to the point of having as many as 4+ per some matches.

Or people can start playing mercs/commandos specced tracer/grav round or scoundrels and ops and run around killing them in 5 globals.

I've been owned by good players from all classes. Hell, a lvl 12 Marauder beat the hell out of me on several occassions the other day. Granted that he didnt care about the objective and would fly in and get the upper hand while I was focused on other stuff but normally I would have torn a player like that apart.

Hence, I think us sorcs are getting too much credit. We will do fine as long as we're up against unaware players ( a pretty big category in this game), are allowed to keep the distance or can "bubble away". It's really a hit n' run class so when things get "up close and personal" there's nothing special about us.

My last wz was pretty comedy, a voidstar where the repubs had 7 commandos and a sage vs our team, that had 3 mercs, 3 powertechs, a sniper and my operative.

That grav round sound makes me shudder still.

Oh yea, the sage beat my healing done, the git.

On our server, about 75% of 50s Empire player are Assassin/Sorcerer.

It's getting ridicoulus. I don't know if they are OP or something, but it would be cool to change that. Make the other class more appealing so I don't have to fight the same bubble guy over and over!

Lmao this post will go about as good as your last nerf post did.

And there are more mercs then sorcs as the fotm kids are seening that sorcs are not op and quite blah for a dps class.

I challenge any of you QQing bad players to roll a sorc to 50 and then say they are op.

I don't even play my sorc now days as my assassin is sooooo much better.
My merc is lol more op then my sorc .
My sniper ***** sorcs. But is sort of a boring class to me.
And ops 4-5 shot a sorc so where is the op of the sorc ?

There was a post just the other day with 150+ pages of QQers asking for sorc nerfs. The best part it was like 15 guys total .

Why is that? That only 15 total? Easy sorcs are by far the lowest dps class in the game. Lowest life in the game. And light armor to go with it.

Can the in a good group get big heal numbers yes and dmg to but its by using a junk.kill no one aoe spell and spaming dots that do **** dmg.


What sorcs have is cc , they have some of not Tue best cc in the game.
The kicker is they are ment ti have low dps And the best cc as the are a supper class.


The jedi story is sort of lame so you see a lot less sages , sorcs have by far the best story , its finger grate. You get to kill rooms of players in it when they piss you off. so you see a lot sticking with then just for that.

At any rate , I know this is just one more in a long list of trolls to nerf any thing , just for a show.

So one, one button wonder class is ************ about another one?

I have no idea if sorc/sage is OP or not, what I know is that no class be in sage/sorc, merc/commando should spend the majority of their pvp spamming one single button because that ability is so effective there is no reason to use anything else. We all have 4 hotbars full of skills for a reason, time to make the easy mode classes use them.
