It's very different. I can't spare the time to explain it all over again. Do you actively play Arenas?
In 8v8, focus comes and goes, it's not full-time. Maintaining focus uptime is something ranked teams work on. Surviving focus in ranked is very difficult, there can be as many as 5 DPS on you, and a lot of the time a properly focused target just dies. It's not fatal when it happens, you just rez.

In 4v4 arenas, focus is a given. You will be focused. It's very easy for a 4-group in TDM to pick a target to burn and stick with it. And you have to be ready to survive it, however you can, whatever the cost.
It is a game of defense. You have to be at higher average hp and better turtled when the acid comes. You want a kill to get you to that point better, but it's optional. Pssive defense (composition, guard), active defense (ccs, interrupts), reactive defense (taunts, cooldowns, heals), whatever it takes to survive in better shape.

You might as well practice in operations. Hey, at least you'll get that loot to sell, and your DPS or healing rotation is about the same, isn't it?
What we must fight for is to safeguard the existence of the Sith race and the Sith people, the glory of our children and the purity of our blood, the freedom and independence of the Empire, so that we may fulfill the mission allotted us by the Force itself. Everything must be examined from this point of view and used or rejected according to its utility.

Skill based PvP died when whatever 'bright' soul came up with the idea of tab targeting and cooldown based combat.

Everything that happened since was just squatting on its corpse.
