What do Marauders excel in or outshine other classes in?

In other words, what is there strong point?

1v1, healer disruption and killing, several times in huttball ive managed to keep 4 members of the opposing team busy with my defensive cool downs just long enough for my team to score. We make really good ball carriers to. A person who knows how to play their marauder can excel in several areas.

why would anyone wanna be good 1v1 in a team game.

any class can disrupt a healer

any class can kill just as fast or faster then a marauder

so basically they just soak up dmg when their cooldowns are up?

Assuming you're talking about the class as a whole and not just pvp, I have yet to see a class that can do better against an eltie/champion single target in the game. The class destroys single targets.

1. there's a lot of 1v1 in world pvp and even a good bit in warzones

2. not any class (commando/merc has no interrupts) and none as well as marauder (6s interrupt)

3. negative, marauders are the top 1v1 class currently when played right

4. they have probably the best defenses you can get when they're all available, undying rage is absolutely insane

1. If you're 1v1ing in a WZ 80% of the time ur prolly somewhere where you dont need to be. commando/merc don't need interrupts they have stuns and knock backs and their dmg output alone get silence a healer.

4. So you can soak up alot of dmg and delay your inevitable death by 5 secs.

So did you just come here to troll or were you actually looking for answers?

he must be trolling because the marauder can kill people fast enough that meny fights seem to be 1v1. the pure dps output is fantastic. the defensive CDs are also great.
i would have to agree that they are best at picking out a squishy target sage/sorc and killing them fast.

its funny when people talk bad about 1v1 in a WZ considering many classes are built around taking out key targets quick such as
operatives
assassins
marauders
etc
they are all the kind of dps that picks a target and destroys them while 2 stealth to kill them we jump from the other side of the map and butcher them.

marauders can kill fast but any dps spec class can kill anyone fast.

no one seems to be comparing marauders to other classes tho that do everything marauders can do but better.

Id have to say snipers are the best at picking out squishy targets, the dps output is nowhere near a sorc or a sniper or a merc

u compare marauders to ops and assasins to taking down targets quick? marauders are at the bottom of the chain in that category. ops and assassins can rip through people waay quicker.

The marauder/sentinel DoTs ignore armor which is useful when taking down a tank.

The force kick interrupt stops a skill for 4 seconds and if specced correctly has a 6 sec. cd which can stop most healers.

The class also has 4 defensive skills each running at a 1-2minute cd each and last for a long time.

Why are you comparing the classes by the average dps, this class requires someone who is willing to adapt and change their style to better fit a team.
