Lol so true.

People who are not 50, well geared (full WH, if not min/maxed), and playing RWZs consistently, should really not post under the pretense that they know anything about pvp balance.

people hate us because we are the best dps class in the game. and if you look at dpsmeter.com we dominate the parser logs. Are we overpowered? ehhhhh i wouldnt say overpowered because we are squishy with our medium armor. But we are without a doubt the LAST class that needs a boost while other classes like merc/commando that could use a boost cuz i just dominate those guys in pvp
The Bastion - Descension
Rexas - Juggernaut, Predatus - Marauder, Malitus - Assassin
Vigilax - Guardian

I have never played a sith warrior past 10 so I am by no means an expert at this class...(although I may play one here soon after I finish leveling my sniper) but, it seems every class in this game at some point is said to be OP by whiners that do not know how to pvp and get wrecked by someone. Remember how OP concealment operatives were (or weren't imo) the whiners cried and BW hit them with the nerf bat. It isn't how OP any class is it is how well you play the class that makes it great imo. Be prepared for the nerf bat though because the bulk of the whiners are crying that marauders are OP. It is unfortunately inevitable....

I can say that I pvp a fair amount (wouldn't consider myself great but above average) and I have killed marauders and been wrecked by marauders and personally I think it wasn't that class that wrecked me but the person behind the keyboard that wrecked me.

So speaking from a sniper and a former rep smuggler and sage people hate on any class in pvp that kills them and then the BW nerf bat comes a swinging. Hope not but I am sure it will ask the sorcerers and the operatives how hard that bat hits when the whiners come a whining...

You shouldn't care what others think of marauders, just try to enjoy the game. Even though marauders are fine atm it is a certainty that at some point marauders will be nerfed (justified or not) and will remain gimped and useless for several patch cycles. This cycle happens to all classes in all MMOs and will continue ad infinitum until our sun goes red giant and engulfs our inner solar system. Remember, it isn't a matter of which class is actually balanced or not-balanced; it's a matter of whiners with megaphones and how many or few mistakes the developers make when they crunch the numbers during class balance passes.

This is an excellent point, and I for one think they should change it to something like 50%. Perhaps put it on some sort of cooldown timer as well?

It's a psychological thing. Mainly it comes down to this. Marauder is a DPS class that does excellent DPS. In capable hands and with the proper team support, the class can do extraordinary things. So, bottom line, Marauders are really good at killing opponents and these peeps don't like to die.

But that's not all. We don't just kill people with pebbles, rail shots, or cluster bombs from a distance. We get in the faces of peeps and cut them to pieces. That's where I believe most of the anger toward our class comes from. There is just something psychologically unsettling about being chased down, pursued and toe-to-toe torn to pieces. Peeps really hate this.

The fact of the matter is that other DPS classes in this game do equivalent or better DPS, every single WZ match, mainly Vans/PTs and Snipers/Slingers. But everyone hates Marauders because when we put the beat down on someone, there is no doubt who it was and it was likely an unpleasant smashmouth experience.

While I don't hate them myself, I do feel the group buffs make them the preferred DPS in any group. Which is fair enough, but I do hope that rather than nerfing the marauder and powertech, that they buff up other classes. I enjoy playing my sentinel, and I think the survivability vs. damage is in a good place.

Ditto.

Thing is, like I said before, don't complain about our DPS since we're a DPS class. I do agree to some extent that UR should have the same CD as Saber Ward.
I just came here for the PVP...
