As for some of the other posts, good points that this doesn't even count roots. It's also good to know I seem to not be the only one that never gets resolve anymore.

My point was how insane it was once I counted it. If you throw roots and snares in there, it's pretty likely that you'll be incapacitated in some way for 30% of a fight or more. There's got to be better systems where players aren't handcuffed for minutes per WZ.

Count and let me know, I'd be curious how it shakes out for others. I just grabbed 1 random match. I did happen to be on a meele class and our opponents had bubble stun (most stuns seemed to be casted though). Seriously, count it up and let me know.

It's called being jumped 3/4/5/6/7/ happens

That said the more annoying thing in the game are roots, but hey I like to use my roots too...if you get CCd/rooted to death....why don't you try doing it to your opponents as well?

So what? BioWare fails to address that issue so people continue to open threads about this topic.

I wouldn't hurt if Bioware either took away one stun from each class or lowered the cooldown of each classes ability to break these stuns/roots.

It does become annoying when you bounce from stun to stun, followed up by roots. It should be about combat and yes, you could argue that players need to decided when to use their stunbreak ability. When faced with an army of stuns, it becomes a joke.

Stun locks being my favourite. Its such a shame that these stuns STILL spoil what is fun combat. And I am trying to figure out why the QQ backpedal babies are out again? Is it a crime to backpedal?

I was also under the impression using your stuns strategically would be important. Since 1.4 it seems people just use it when it's up because there's no real harm most of the time. I see lowbies popping knock back in the worst situations just cause it is up as well. In ranked this issue wasn't bad as good teams do use stuns strategically but now bubble throws that out the windows. It's to the point that I'd rather burn down the tanks than go after a great bubble sage/sorc.

I sent in a ticket and got that same response, it's a template.

In an effort to make this productive, lets get more stun match counts and ideas how to fix this (since BW clearly can't).

I love the shorter cool down on the breaker, but I think it needs a small immunity window.
Stunning a stunned player could backfire, break their stun, or maybe just add a lot of resolve.
Resolve could fill 4x but full resolve may make you debuffed and take say 10% more damage.
Roots should add resolve
I'd like a red text message when stunned

Nerf the bubble so you can't click it off for on demand cc. And bubbles are fixed.
Then realize that wz play is objective based and not team deathmatch.

Learn to recognise that stuns, roots and slows are tactical tools and use them as such.


(making bubbles give 600 resolve and instakill the only sage/sorc pvp spec)
(make bubble stun only work on the caster himself and destroy the spec)

The only way to fix this issue is to redesign the resolve system.

In a 1v1 you don't need a resolve system. You can't be stunned to death. Being stunlock killed only occurs when you have 2 or more players attacking 1 opponent. In this situation, a functioning resolve system becomes absolutely critical for the enjoyment of all players. Biowares current implementation is awful. The previous implementation was also terrible. They can do much better.
