Are BW actually going to do anything with it or even acknowledge its an issue I don't spend much time on forums so haven't seen if they have acknowledged it's a problem and if they are planning to do anything about it had a quick search but certainly couldn't find anything by them on the issue.

10 warzones today 90% of both teams made up of smashers being hit for up to 9k is great fun (full wh v my full bm minus ear and 1 implant)

They need a class that even worst players can be great with.

Yah it makes PvP terrible, but since its just a side attraction for PvEers it doesnt matter to them.

The problem is, when a new FOTM appears, people instead of rolling the counter class, they roll the FOTM and aggravate the situation even more. For the very lulz of it, I had a few WZ where we went with a 4 sniper premade. The republic scums fielded 4 sents and 2 guardians on voidstar. Needless to say, we ruined somebody's day, it was a bloody massacre.

The buffs to rage/focus were stupid, from a pvp perspective (why buff a spec that was already performing well?).

But I'm not sure if the issue is smashers, per se. The damage is out of hand, in this game. 1.6 seem to be adressing the insane gear gap, which is a good first step. But they really need to tone damage across the board. Forgive the exaggeration, but skill in pvp can be boiled down to which person stuns the other first.

I recall a dev response at least a month ago saying they're aware of gripes about it, and are basically monitoring it.

In the meantime I decided to make the best of it, playing my GS more and rolled a sniper. It's fun watching the smash mobs leaping around nodes and quickly wiping them out.

I may be reaching here that there are plenty of counters for this class out there in 50 pvp. When playing deception I have absolutely no issue with smash jug, a 30% AoE damage reduction with a well timed force shroud or blackout and when my defenses are down so is the jug with the burst I have at my disposal.

Keep in mind rage jugs are fairly squishy, at least thats what I take from them.

But thats a fotm to counter another. Try a merc or oprtative where they dont even have 30%aoe reduction. Your 18sec 25% dr and a force tech god mode at their disposal.
