It is only because bioware likes making classes that you only have to hit 4 buttons. If you have to hit more than that QQ. Maras were awesome pre 1.2 but no one played them because they took some touch. As long as bioware delivers full face roll classes that can dominate. You can't expect the non skilled community to play anything but the FotM. So I am going to help out some people. Sages can beat all 1v1. But at this point spec for sage means everything.

Juggs/mars are ez mode as balance.
Healers/BH/PT/Sorcs are ez mode as my dps hybrid
Ops dps- Healing/dps hybrid.

Unfortunately I cannot spec 41/41/41 so depending on my spec some fights are uphill battles. But since everyone is FotM maras it has been easy to sit in balance lately. Your class is only what you make it.

Although I am assuming you meant dps, I love my Merc (Bodyguard) and I play him everyday. You CANNOT kill me unless you have 3+ good dps beating on me provided I use my CDs correctly. I will never top an equally skilled/geared sorc or op healer on the meters, but my actions change games, and dps QQ when they cant kill anyone. <3 it.

As a sniper, I can sit on the top ledges and pound away on every single person dumb enough to get into my range. The best part? None of my attacks have distinctive enough trails to give me away. I can just sit up there all day and score 15 medals before half the game is up.
I <3 alts!

I'm on that Jugg train with OP. By far best class for pvp. Mobility/utility/survivability.
There is no peace, there is only griefing. There is no fear, there is only camping. There is no death, there is only trolling. There is no weakness, there is Oppression.

Love playing my anni marauder now.

1v1 can't be beaten, period. Being able to back to back to back kill in the time it takes other classes to get one kill is epic. Regularly getting double the kills of the second player on my team simply because that's how many solo kills a marauder can get. Knowing I'm going to kill my enemy even without needing to use defensive CDs- and when I'm 2v1 I'll then pop some and get a double kill every time.

It's fun being EZ mode, since I tend to play the classes that get nerfed the most in mmos- so playing the most powerful one is new for me- makes pvp a bit of a joke, but that's fine, it's not so bad when I know I'm going to dictate how the WZ goes pretty much by myself.

I like how I can never stop moving, it's nothing but instants, and I have fantastic CC- knowing resolve means nothing to me is pretty sweet, so many ball carriers with a white bar think they're safe to go over flame jets- are wrong when they get rooted to death.

It's pretty sweet also knowing that I can just pick a target and get the solo kill medal- moment I see some sorc in the back trying to heal or deal damage- just leap them and get my free medal in about 6 seconds. It's pretty sweet also being able to take objective points that have 2 guards by myself with ease.

I don't play one of the OP classes or specs but I do play one of the only classes and specs that have a charge and a pull so I've ruined so many jumpers parade with a quick trip back to a fire pit and their spawn.

I can stand on the terminal on Novare coast and make it difficult to cap with my aoe and range abilities. Being a ranged/melee class is nice.

I like my Sentinal because I've played him since launch and got good with binding 24+ skills. I like having a skill for every situation thats thrown at me.

I can say that Mike is a nasty sage since I play w him on Kinrath Spider. Anyone who cries sages are underpowered should talk to this guy.

^-- That.
I love my HoT; I logged my sage (my frist toon) after playing operative for a good while and I didn't know what to do with it anymore, found it clumsy and couldn't find my HoTs. I love ninja-capping, I love scoring a ball and throw a vanish in their faces, so they don't get the satisfaction of killing me. I love my 'free' heal (whatsitsname); I love to run around in my flashy orange PvPimp coat and spam it with only a handful of HP left and watching them chase me around a tent forgetting about everything else. I haven't tried a DPS spec, but I'm sure I'd love it too. I also love how it's one of the least popular classes, at least used to be, I'm sure.

And PvP aside, love the story, the accent and as my trusty sidekick says: "They're scared of you aren't they? You come, you go, you're the freaking secret police."
