To solve the problem, Global CD on CCs and any CC should give 20s immunity.

Earlier, I was running right out of spawn at the start of Alderan WZ. There were 2 guys, one noticed me and altered course whilst the other kept on to the turret controls.

So I'm expecting to get CC'd, all I need to do is break the first CC and then run past my attacker to interupt the guy on the turret and this'll give us a slight advantage.

So I'm CC'd, I break out ... immediately CC'd again (flashbang). So I take damage (miss interupting the guy on the controls, BTW), and the CC breaks and then before I know it I'm CC'd AGAIN!?

I understand the intent of the post but the CCing is ridiculous in this game. I've learnt which CCs break on damage now so unless I really need to break them I'll leave them alone to wear off and save my CC-Breaker for the CCs I can take damage during. But some matches it's just CC spam. I wouldn't say it's so bad as to be game-breaking, but it think it definitely detracts from the PvP experience.

It just needs to actually work. It wouldn't be so bad if we figured out that this could just sort of make us immune to CC sometimes. But being told "X will happen when you build up your Y enough", and then it doesnt happen... it's called being lied to lol.

It sucks because i know resolve works like 20% of the time and that's nice, but even CC doesn't make sense as i've had marauders (who have no CC immunity) keep running as i force charge them, which should immobilize them no matter the resovle bar if what everyone is saying is true.

Working as intended isn't good enough anymore. It's not going to break the game for me, but don't tell me it works when it doesn't... you'll lose plenty of other customers who don't have a good time/think other games are better... And i hope we all want this to do better than AoC did... (which it is obviously, just make changes in the right direction as i said earlier >.<)

Resolve is a lie, there is only CC.

The virginity is strong with this one.

PS. The dark side find this post intersting.

Resolve do not work. Even without bug, it do not work, is garbage system.

Only ansawer is put diminish return or reduces the cooldown from abilities that frees you from cc.

I have seen resolve work a few times but by the time i was at full resolve, i only had about 1k hp left because I was being killed while CCed.

Many examples i can give include
last night while in a huttball match with my sorc, with a full bar of resolve (all white) im carrying the ball almost about to score, and i get stunned(not snared, hard stunned) couldnt even pass the ball to my mate next to me. this happened a few times last night.

another example i ran into last night opposite problem. I would use overload at opportune times to knock off half their team grouped up like idiots, yet when i used it 3 went flying and a bh and marauder stood there like i did nothing as im overloading on their heads(clicked both jus to check they had NO resolve).

another example of broken mechanic with this thread. Overload when used right one can fling the opponent in the direction of choice, yet when i use mine many times ill position myself in a direction to knock them 45 degree off a ledge in huttball. one time i used it infront of a opposing player carrying the ball, and it sent him flying bhind me totally *** backwards causing him to be close to goal ending up runnin in instead of the pit.

Iv had many more examples but look over these and tell me this system is not broken.

The big question is not to fight the bug of resolve, is to be against the resolve system. Even if it wasnt bugged this system is garbage. You have 2 minutes cooldown ability to get free from CC, but once you use, you keep 2 minutes without any defense, and without diminish.

Those free from cc abilities shoudl have 40 seconds cooldown, somehting like it. Or put hard diminish returns. The immunity should go longer. I stopped play it cos' i got tired to get CC and you cant do anything. I am watiing them to change it, or else, i'll probly quit the game, together with a thousand players that think the same.

To play a game where you can't play at all cos' you're all the time on CC id stay on wow.

Stop copy the worst thing wow have. Pvp shouldn't be CC, slow and roots all the time. Pvp should be dynamic. That's why people love FPS games, cos' it's dynamic, you can act, you can move freely.

Pvp should be dynamic, the pvp here is getting frustrating.
