uhhh, pt powertechs, marauders, operatives, and tankassins are all amazing at 1v1. Comes down to player skill between these 4.

Hard to determin, wish you could duel in Fleet.

A shame that duel isnt a part of this game, since you cannot do it where people are at.

Kinetic Combat Shadow / Darkness Assassin.

Perhaps the absolute best 1v1 class/spec in the game. Modest skill floor, modest skill ceiling.

Scales up poorly in large engagements. Consider yourself warned.

From what I have read on these forums you can just roll a merc then hit Trace Missle over and over and over and kill every player on the play field? I didnt even see them in the list.

Didn't we just do this thread yesterday? <.<

Pretty sure that Annihilation Maras, Pyro PTs, and tank hybrid Sins win this contest.

Anni/Watchman Marauder/sent annihilate pt/vanguard (accuracy debuff stops all rail shots from hitting), sniper/slinger is 100 percent hard counter to sent/marauder (noone knows it yet), stealth slaughters sniper/slinger, pt/vanguard pwns the @@%@ out of derps and so does op/scoundrel. doesn't make them OP though.

The one class that can beat everything? SiN/Shadow but it is a really close fight with a marauder/sent.

Crude, but pretty much true, imo. : P

Yeah...It is gonna suck when people realize how good a counter sniper/slingers are to JK/SW classes lol.

to an extent. mercs have good dps but ****** survivability. have fun throwing TMs around but pray that no one notices you

btw that doesnt make them a good 1v1 class, probably the worst in the game
