You were focused.
It doesn't matter if you were focused because they know you are a good player or because you were mistaken for a healer or because it just happened. The enemy team did what they were supposed to do: they recognized who is a threat in your team and killed you as soon as they saw you. They used their brains. And trust me, that's a pretty rare sight these days in PVP.

ANY DPS, let alone a light armor wearing glass cannon like a Lightning Sorc/TK Sage, should die easily if focused and shut down by more than 2 players of the enemy team. That's the whole point of being a DPS.

I understand your point wasn't that BW should make us immortal, but I just wanted to point out that this is probably a bad example.
Eh, true enough. But while lightning remains the last vestige of a cc sorc, its escapability (especially for being that light armor class, isn't light armor supposed to equate with mobility?) is surprisingly nil.

A class that must kite and LOS to survive, yet has no cooldown whatsoever to break a rootlock scenario--that is an oxymoron. (Especially when anti-kiting has been buffed as much as it has in this game)

If fadeout was baseline, I could have at least root overloaded, sprinted off, and Made One of Them Pay at least a little bit for trying to kill me before the other bunch of them leapt right back for the smash.

As it is, it really doesn't take more than 2 smashers to rootlock a lightning sorc in excess of five seconds and doublesmash before the lightning sorc can do much of anything (bear in mind the constant double leaps). One smash mara alone can rootlock a lightning sorc, thereby making a mockery of the Combat Team telling us to kite, though thankfully smash hasn't quite reached 1-shot autowin against sorcs yet. But I'm sure it's only a matter of time before the Combat Team sees to that.

Hmmm, 2.5? How far off is that? Are you guys hoping all the sup par dpsers hang out while their classes are getting fixed? I know we had to kick a non Wild-berry shadow dps from our group even though he could parse decent numbers. Nothing like being into end-game raiding but unable to participate.

Unfortunately I am the bearer of bad news today. It looks like the Combat Team will need some more time to finish your questions, so we will be posting these next week. While it may seem like a quick and easy thing to answer these questions, the team wants to make sure you receive thorough answers, which does take time. I understand this is not ideal, but we appreciate your patience and apologize for the delay!

Courtney will be the one posting your top 3. I will be out of town for a couple of days so you wont see my name lightin' up the devtracker. Play nice while I'm gone.

Thanks!

So I have a stupid question. If the reason for not providing the answers on time was because the team is hard at work on 2.5, how is it that they will be given at all before 2.5? I mean, aren't they still working on 2.5 this week and next week too? And the week after, and ...

I'm a bit worried that with a major patch being released this week, we're looking at the end of the week at best, and if something significantly wrong appears tomorrow with the ability changes already coming in 2.4, they're obviously going to be preoccupied with that. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm sensing the procrastination here is really going to come back to haunt you, especially since it pertains to two of the classes that arguably have some of the greatest perception problems by the community. Anyway, good luck.

I expect to see an announcement on Thursday that they're almost done again, but they won't post them so close to Friday, so we'll see them put off at least another full week...again.

Unless, of course, they are timing the release of the questions to coincide with the patch so that people are distracted by the content and patch issues and don't have time to adequately respond to the questions. Pretty cynical on my part to think they may be that deceptive, but if they don't have good answers and are just going to blow smoke at us, they'll want something shiny to distract us with so that we are too busy to bust up the smokescreen.

Why is that Mercs/Commandos always get slapped in the face? Why can't we get something as simple as questions answered in a decent time frame? Why do you hate us so much?
