The only way to force EA/BW to fix pvp balance...

We should petition to have ALL EA employees who work on SWTOR be forced to pvp at least 4 hours a day.

BUT, They can only play Merc/Commo or Ops/Scound DPS classes.

This will have 2 effects:
1.) The general player base will be happier because there will be more EASY targets for them to kill.
2.) The employees who are capable of learning will finally get it.

/bump if you agree that this is a good idea

EA/BW: Please FIRE all who worked on PVP for incompetence. Thx.

Is Hickman the one from DAoC who let that game flounder until WoW kicked its azz???
The same one who helped create that other game that no one plays anymore...

He is the one that people rely on for advice about Ops

Maybe I'm wrong... I sure hope so.
BTW... I miss DAoC... Wish they hadnt let it die.

This is the issue. From watching some of the prelaunch trailers the devs are terrible (god awful terrible) in pvp...they would have to buff the classes they play to be on par with weaker class played better. It shows in their game.
-I would rather pay for a great game than play a poor game for free.
-Viable and worthwhile are not the same when it comes to class design.

LOL. Pretty sure this would be in violation of federal work place rules. Something about not being about to torture your employees....

That won't fix the problem. The best solution to class balance is simple. Play the most OP class. If you are playing an already OP class then roll a second and third as backup in case it gets nerfed. Have you not noticed that there aren't many mercs in wz anymore? Most of those players have switched classes. I am one of those people. If I didn't reroll i would still be mad about how bad mercs are. This happens in every mmo I have played, the most OP class becomes the most popular and will stay that way so long as it is OP. You are really just matching the competition anyhow. Why put yourself at a disadvantage because of the class you chose? If you are one of those people who say but I like merc ,its my favorite, then enjoy playing your gimped pvp toon. I wouldn't count on EA fixing it any time soon, maybe never.

You can tell when a class has an OP ability or is just OP in general by the amount of newly rolled (insert name of here) class.

Recently, you will see lots of LOLSmashers, Powertechs where around 1.2 it was Snipers/Gunslingers - its an endless cycle and unfortunately, I don't think Bioware DO play their own game because if they did, they would see that having a total of 67 stuns in a single game is NOT fun.
