Am glad you can agree with the basis of my argument. Explosions are best, which is why I play a VG instead of my lame old classes of Sentinel and Sage. No explosions on those toons, but explosions are grande on lil-dougie.

Deception assassin can't cleanse sniper's two roots that is heavily relies on. Scrapper can.

There is a problem here, I can't quite put my finger on it.

Shroud cleanses roots and my darkness hybrid's force speed purges roots. So yes, yes we can

Dodge not only cleanses roots, it protects against most of snipers' damage.

Assassin can win 1 vs 1 against snipers, but operative is stronger against snipers than assassin is. Snipers have almost no defense against tech attacks, and almost all of operative's attacks are tech. Operative can also flashbang then heal.

Darkness hybrid should not exist. Bioware has tried to kill out hybrid specs over, and over again. They just keep failing.

Personally I think hybrids should never be allowed. 36 points should be required in a single tree before being allowed to put points into another tree do stop these matchmaking situations where people are being marked as dps but are actually healing/tanking. I don't think its broken or OP, but in a matchmaking environment it breaks the tool that is trying to form balanced teams.
The matchmaking system was offended in certain scenarios in solo ranked when there was no tank in the other team or 4 vs 4 dps. Which is no matter because almost no one queues. For unranked arenas, is too crapped to even state an argument.
Actually the only advantage of hybrid is against area attacks e.g predominantly smashers in arenas. Understandably, hiting 6.5 - 7.5k on tanks and 10+ on other poor classes and then only 4.5 on hybrid, is a source of frustration. Which BW eagerly relieved.
