I agree, its senseless playing something just because its good. Every class in PvP has its counters in one way or another. If you enjoy the class you play and get good at it, you can stomp almost anything anyway.

Because I suck at pvp, I will have mutiple chars ready to change every new month when bioware announces which is the OP class.
I will own and be happy else I will make spam threads on forum about unbalances which is not fair to me....its not.

i enjoy whatever is good, please quit telling me that. i dont have a playstyle, i adapt to pwn in pvp. i know there are classes that are better than others at pvp.

if the caster healer was that OP then they would have already said something about it to prepare a nerf, they arent stupid enough to nerf hardcore right at launch.

so... nobody can really predict if they are going to nerf it or not and its a risk i'm willing to take i just want to hear the facts about whats good and whats not please.

I Have seen Juggies and Guardians Destroy in pvp, I ahve seen Mar/Sent's Destroy in pvp, I have seen Sorc/Sages destroy etc etc its more about your playstyle than the class in this game, there really is no FTOM that you get from the other games.
Resource Mgt and timing are the name of the game here.

(point in case the highest overall output I have everseen from a lvl 50 in a WZ was a sith Juggie, 580k in dmg during alderaan while the lvl 50 sorc on their team onnly ran around 260k dmg and 110k heals)

is this level 50? and solo or group based? i'm pretty sure marauders get pwnd by any decent caster archetype just because they can heal bubble root, knockbackrootetc etc.

so.. only an idiot healer would die to a melee class from what i read so far at 50..

u lev 50?

In general, for dmg #s Trooper/BH is Op'd. However, all the other classes are just as capable in skilled hands except for Knight/Warrior at lower lvls.

All the tank classes are sickiningly good at organized pvp though, but have to be played by very capable hands to excel. The heal classes are all great.

Basically, in PUGs, and in skilled hands, the healings classes are PUG stompers. In organized PvP you need people that can play the other roles well.

And healers don't have great dmg. What they do is heal themselves for long enough that their teamates show up, and most people are so dang tunnel visioned and probably over extended they die.../ragequit and come to the forums to say the healer just killed me, nerf their dmg!

For the record, I don't play a healer.

If you put a skilled player in control of the classes they're all pretty even. Abilities for all classes have same general design philosophy.

well i'm likely going to pug. and i read sorcs specced for dps can burst better than anyone else and heal decently. none of the classes really appeal to me there are only 4 and i wanted to really be able to customize my experience with stat allocation and all there really is is a talent tree.

i do like dual wield or double bladed lightsabers and its really lame that the lightsaber you use is restricted to a class. like a master of melee i would expect to be able to use double bladed singe or dual wield there really isnt much leeway in how you want to play you are forced highly into a role which i dont like, but its star wars.

my shadow had 2x the avoidance and just as much HP and armor as my marauder so i dont know why they would be any good. not much burst dmg and low armor and mitigation and that was going to be my class but i had it the hardest out of any class i tried in beta. i dont want to have to run with a group to not get kited/stunlocked to death and i hear thats what melee is really prone too, they have a few ccs and breaks but the casters i hear have all kinds of cc goodies.

For World PVP, stealth class is the best choice, since you can always have the upper hand.
For Warzones, just go with the class which is most fun to you.
