That's right.
I want to see what various players (skilled and not so skilled) like about their class and spec in PVP.
Brag about your best kills.
Brag about your advantages against other classes and specs.
Tell us how you tackle a tough opponent.
But do not QQ in this thread.
I don't want anyone complaining about OP this and they should nerf that.
Save it for the 40,000,000 other QQ threads.
This is a machoism thread.

My main is a Jug. Immortal spec, unlike most who are "LOL smashcrit" spec.
In PVP I can take on three or more opponents for a surprising ammount of time, especially because I normally rotate my shields so I always have one or two ready to go. If I can get my hands on pocket heals, I guarentee it will take just about all 8 enemies a good few minutes to bring me down.
Put the huttball in my hands, and I'll stand next to the enemy goal line like a ******* for a full thirty seconds while taking every offensive cooldown they can blow before humiliating them by moseying across their line. Then, jump in circles while they all ignore my teammate who is walking in for another score just so they can get that kill.

I really enjoy the inherent leadership that comes with being a tank. I establish the frontline. I aid my team with lightening fast guarding, taunts and CC.
The planet seems to revolve around you when your a tank. The enemy can't ignore you. Your team follows your lead.

Best part is, I can take on two or three DPS and still get a kill before they put me down.

Having other players think your class sucks, while you destroy half their team and they think it's someone else doing it : )

Playing operative, I like that it is both the traditional 'rogue' class and a healer. My two favorite roles in one class is just so so nice, I think it's the reason I'm still playing. Best 1v1 class by a mile (med/conc hybrid) is sweet too.

I have a kin-Shadow. But he's not a tank. Guardians are tanks. My Shadow is a whole armored column. I love the incredible amount of damage I can take, dueling a Marauder, letting him hit me with everything he's got and yet it's not quite enough. I love wading into the crush at the huttball stand. I know I'll be killed, but with my taunt I'll get 5k defense points, if not more. I love using resilience and turning Orbital Strike and Force Lightning into expensive light shows.

Most of all I love using Force Pull. When I yank the ball carrier back into the pit just moments from scoring... their anguish sustains me. Best kill I ever got was using Force Pull. Jedi Knight knocked me back, but I yanked him towards me before he could leap. He stood there stunned for like 2 seconds while I whaled on him, I can only assume trying to understand why he kept getting told he was too close to jump.

Yep, I love my shadow.

I really like the flow and fluidity of the skills on my Shadow and Marauder. Everything seems to flow seamlessly and combat is quite fun.

In contrast, I'm not a big fan of my Scoundrel. I actually like the pop and run style of the class, but the skills don't flow as well for me. Maybe it's the animations, I'm not sure. Combinations seem disjointed and the class plays sort of clunky. It did have my favorite story though so far, for whatever that's worth. haha

On my operative -> i like instagibing ppl with orbital strike combos after i bait their trinket.

On my sorc heal hybrid i like the cc/ survivability i have and near infinite resource pool while doing support dps.

On my assassin -> i like that i can still kill ppl while being very durable vs other dps. (shelved kinda, just doing daily cuz its to easy to play 3 hit wonder main rotation-> wither /shock -> force lightning )

Juggernaut- > shelved, hate the playstyle.

I have a merc. He is pointless in wz and horrible 1 vs 1. I no longer play him.

As a dps sage I destroy all. I love how people are speechless about what a skilled player can do with the class.

Many people are convinced that it's useless, because it's no longer overpowered (;
