I understand they have stopped the exploit where you could move and spam force lightening, I never used that anyway so that aspect is abslolutely fine.

I have for the last couple of weeks constantly scored over 400-450k damage every warzone with over 25 kills without fail, however since the patch was implemented yesterday I have got sometimes around 150-200k. I also now seem to die twice as fast, I have no idea why. My HP is of course the same, but it just seems like I am now playing with 7.5k instead of 15k. I don't understand what can actually go so wrong overnight.

Or could it be just a pure coincidence that I all of a sudden suck at PvP and everyone is targeting me now when they never did before?

No nerf in the patch notes. On my server, many of the good players that had taken breaks / rolled alts, are now back participating in PVP again due the changes. For example, I haven't been on my main character for a week or two, since I've been working on my Sith Warrior. It's now level 50, with enough gear to operate relatively well in my hands in PVP since hitting level cap last week. I noticed many other players had done the same.

It's possible the same could be true on your server.

It's also possible that your numbers pissed somebody off and they started marking ya.

This is normally reserved for healers (sorry guys, I love ya, but ya gotta die) but occasionally an outstanding DPSer will earn a mark.

Dead sorc does little damage.

Just throwing it out there.

Don't think so, we're still quite annoyed with them on Republic side

I've been told the lightning is supposed to "slow", but either multiple lightning (from >1 sorcerer) creates a freeze from stacking slows or really does a stun vs. slow even with lvl 50 on 50? The sage's telekinetic throw slows unless there is a "weaker" target, then it "immobilizes", so am I missing some stacking feature at level 50 with that ability?

Also, on another note, I've noticed a vast increase on the level of Warriors/Knights on our server in the past week. They are -very- effective in taking down cast bar turret classes. I've been in a few Warzones that were all Sith Warriors this week.

You stopped playing agains terribads that let you freecast for the duraton of WZ and then come to QQ about it on forums.

Kinda ends all "sorc/sage is OP".

Looks like people are finally realising that sorcs/mercs are quite mediocre for PVP, and it's melee like assassins, marauders, juggs and powertechs who truly dominate.

Something good players have known for a long time, I guess it was inevitable the info would trickle down eventually.

Hmmm... was it Operative ? Yesterday one Sorc said something rude on chat so in return I hunted him down whole WZ to the point when I moved to their base and was killing him just after he left forcefield.
I was taking breaks only if I could not vanish after fight near their enemy base.
