But a main issue is also the sages and sorcerers. World of warcraft made a big mistake by buffing up the warlocks to a point where 1 warlock could easily solo an entire pvp zone. swtor is doing the same mistake with the sages. an attack should normaly burn down maybe what ... 10% or 20% of the opponants health. an the stun effect from it would hold them for 0.5 to 2 seconds.
at the moment, the sage stun you for a full 5 seconds or more, while 100% or more of your health bar is burned. and they can cast it on multuple players. this is the warlock revisited. you might as well give them god mode.
right now, lots of players are obsessed by beating them. and go suicide again and again in pvp zones swarmed by sages. while they are cursing and swearing. but after a while, they will be so upset, they will quit the game. and i dont believe swtor can loose that many subscribers. cause this thing is driving the game into the ground.
Oh, and in the futur, i would suggest you double check the ideas of the developper that creates god modes before adding the updates
Funny stuff really

10 stars for amusement

I play as sage on the only west coast PVP server. In unranked we get our asses handed to us the majority of the time. Gear has a lot to do with your probability of survival in WZs. You probably run into a lot of fully geared tier 2 Obroan sages who know how to mod properly for maximum effect. Also, if the sage is fully geared, has mods for damage reduction AND has a shield from guardian of course he is going to seem nearly unstoppable. Cooperation can go a long way to keep team mates alive. As for me - 1/2 tier 1 Obroan, 1/2 tier 2 Obroan - modded and specced for heals (not properly modded for effect) and I get dropped within 10 seconds of leaving the safe zone about half the time. Consecutive Stuns + interrupts + slows = quick death regardless of class. I don't believe sages are OP at all. In fact, I think that sorcerers are more OP in comparison.

He is probably playing lowbies, where up to L30, DPS Sages/Sorcs are more advanced than other classes and certainly simpler to play. They are the kings and queens of that division.

If he is L55, I really do not know what to say to him.
Want to fix ranked PVP? Cross-server/faction queues, bring back 8v8s, remove bolster from all ranked play, add a 2018 expertise gate, remove ranked commendations from all non-ranked play, including the 3:1 conversion.

Damage reduction mods? Not sure what you mean here to be honest mate. If someone is gearing for damage reduction they are not modding properly at all.

Sorc/sage function the same, there is no difference. At launch project had a slight delay compared to shock and the knockback animations were slightly different (sorc was faster). The difference was very very slight though.

They are mirrors and there is no advantage to playing one over the other.
