3 Legitimate Classes Left

Anyone else think there are only 3 legitimate classes left for competitive gameplay?

I am not talking about classes just being useful as there are still several of those. I am talking about the best players using the best classes to have the best teams in game, using only these three classes in their teams.

And if this is the case, anyone else think that BW's pvp team is a little clueless on pvp balance? Prior to 1.2 I think they did a reasonably ok job with pvp balance; but post 1.2 I think they just got lucky at launch.

Yep. Only 3 classes worthwhile now. Sadly they are all on the empire side. And must be chiss to maintain that effectiveness.

i can name 2 right off the bat.. the warzones are filled with assassin/shadows and maurader/sents...

tahts 2... the other is just a mix of old classes of people trying to stick to them. I think as more sides continue to level up these 2 classes you will see less of the other classes. i brought back my gunslinger... i wanted to play healer... but that is pointless as i spend more time healing myself then teammates.

Judging by the climate on these forums, you have two of them in your sig. Congrats!

all im seeing is Powertech/Vanguards, Sentinnel/Marauders, Aassassin/shadow.

I think the problem is they do so much damage and have too many damage reducing abilities, combine that with slows and gap closers and its GG against healers and ranged dps

Utter nonsense.

The Best Players play the class that fits them the best, and they make the best teams with diversity. Annoying, min-maxers who read forums and guides and debate which ability is truely better (one does 500 damage over 4 seconds, one does 400 instantly... etc.) worry about "best classes to stack."

Edit: And I meant to add "And their hoards of wanna be elite min-maxer minions..."

Players are the factor in whether a class is viable or useless.

I have seen all classes and specs played in a Godlike fasion. I have seen them played horridly aswell....
