Why does pub side seem to suck?

As the title implies, I'm pretty sure some may share my thoughts as to why in what seems to be every WZ we get slain because a a jug or sorcerer seem to be invincible and asserts their authority on you. Was the imp side upgraded to the point they can steam roll pub or what? As a commando healer I don't notice too much but for my dad (guardian) and my brother (vanguard) they seem to have a prison flashback every time they get into it with an imp guy. And if I'm not mistaken, isn't the guardian supposed to be the iconic Jedi therefore should be some what above par from the rest?

These threads are always awesome.

More interestingly, new episodes of Arrested Development hit Netflix on the 25th.

Really? I never seem to notice when I'm too busy winning.

Maybe it's not the entire Republic. It could just be one single guy.

Guess we'll never know....

I'm not asking for a smart *** reply

But as stated I being a healer I don't notice too much but it's more so for the benefit of my brother and dad.

I haven't done PvP in SWTOR in forever and a half, but I have noticed that the "bad guy" side in games tends to be better at PvP, and inexplicably and proportionally worse at PvE. How that happens when it's so easy is beyond me, but I've seen if time and again.

Of course, this isn't a set-in-stone rule, just a commonality.

guardian is juggs exact mirror. same goes for sage and sorcerer. so if you are having trouble is due to one or more of the following factors.

pre made
the other side is communicating better even without being premade
your opponent is being healed.
they have better gear,
they are better player.

Yes you did, you posted on the forums.

PvP draws a lot of sore-loser types who will naturally gravitate towards whatever is the stronger side, thus making the stronger side stronger. A different server may have a completely different balance.
