PVPing as a tank in a MMO is like using Juggernaut perk in call of duty. Makes you a newbie.

Last but not less, why dont there JetPack work for personal flight, and how there even be a a bounty hunter in a sw - world and NO bounties on players ?

- Beside this NOW that YOU have the old DAOC team, then why is there not more faction world pvp / and with a meaning for world / control ?
Because tanks that can also heal cause serious balance issues in PvP and make balancing PvE obnoxious. There's a reason no AC has both a tanking and healing tree.

They have pistols instead of assault rifles because they have all sorts of other gadgets to use, and it's easier to do so with a sidearm than with a huge assault rifle. Imaging trying to heft a heavy rifle WHILE operating, say, the touch interface on your phone. Then imagine that the interface causes fire to come out of your hands. Now do it while being shot in the head. So, yeay pistols.

As for the rest, my eyes hurt too much, so that's as far as I read.

Applying real world physics and logic in a fantasy game never makes sense. The real reason is most likely because it's easier to create cool complicated animations for pistols then for rifles.

One word defeats all your complaints, balance. One class cant have all the toys other classes have. That would be overly retarded. Sorry but your rant makes no sense.
