Yes, we've all had to adjust to open with ranged moves. It sucks because you can't leap in for focus (don't want to waste it) so you are better off with your focus-building saber attack. If it procs Ataru, you are golden, but if not you need to risk a Blade Rush to proc Ataru so you don't waste your Blade Storm on an unprocced attack. Eh, maybe when I gear up a little more I can rely on my Crippling Throw to pop it.

Honestly, this really illustrates how important it is to have an obvious visual indicator for when the bubble will stun you on popping. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe there is presently no way to tell if Leap->Gore>Ravage will leave the enemy in a state of severe pain, or just severe rofl.
A classic sig that should not be lost:

no way a focus guardian can beat a focus sent 1v1

1. Focus with the most overall damage due to AOE, however much poorer 1v1 than the other two.
2. Watchman with the most 1v1 damage due to more sustained damage.
3. Combat with the least overall damage. The most burst out of the 3, less sustained damage (than Watchman) and next to 0 AOE. They sacrifice overall damage for great utility and quick burst.

IMO anyways. I have never played focus, so I'm basing my opinion on playing against them.

If you guys think focus is bad 1v1 you're not playing it right... Leap crush do whatever smash choke do whatever smash. Almost 100% of the time bads will stun you when you leap out of fear, crush builds your stacks while you're stunned and then you can either break it and smash or wait it out depending on how hard you're getting hit. If you're not ready to smash, target is still out of dispatch range and you start feeling like it's going south, just vanish and run out for another leap.

Pretty much gg. I don't think I've lost a 1v1 to anything other than a sniper or a geared ops opening out of stealth. It's not uncommon to finish this out with full health or pretty close to it. Specific situation that comes to mind, first game as focus, went snow in an acw at start as usual, someone else got trans they had no pred. VC + Zen leap smash crush pacify eat the stun.... smash choke vanish smash cap. lol

Not to say combat can't do that either, but you are way more likely to get your damage gimped by something, stunned during your ravage, etc

Rage/Focus: Biggest over all damage numbers.

Carnage/Combat: Best single target burst damage and team utility

Annihilation/Watchman: Best marauder/sentinel 1v1 spec (IMO) but not viable for rated.

Annihilation is also great for PvE!
