Keep it in, people need to learn to use the mechanics given to them.... (Aoe anyone?) The faster you are at AoE, the better.

"everyone is rolling Stealth characters like Jedi Shadows and inquiz assassins even Sith and jedi Maruaders are too much stealth its pretty OP and needs a major nerf thats what pssing me off most in this pvp is they stealth after they attack or i attack them and they stealth right after.. OP please Nerf!"

Everyone is rolling ranged classes as FOTM right now. Have a little sympathy; have you tried backstabbing in pvp as of late? If their running from you, kudos to you! Just dot em or hit an aoe on the vanish; with the pace of pvp in swtor if someone decides to run from you they have pretty good odds of getting away stealth or not.

That is the only thing i hated and pissed me off . Im sniper and i do only burst dmg with 1 dot ability. Now i cant spec a different tree just so i can have more dot abilities. The dot ability does literally no dmg. Its annoying how they can disappear during cmb

P.S. We have cloak of shadows too.


Don't be mad, play to the strengths of your class and I will play to mine.

Stealth classes are almost always the kings of 1v1 combat in EVERY PVP game. So you will have to get over it.

I agree with the OP. Tank specs aren't going to have a dot.

Put a dot on? Do you people really play against Ops/assasins that don't evasion first?

Im only in my early-mid 20s and far as I see most operatives are in the same level range, and unless I missed something I haven't trained anything called evasion yet, which might be why people are still unfamilair with it.

I am almost speechless that someone could still be complaining about something like this. OP must be new to PvP in MMOs.

Assassins have an ability that wipes off all debuffs and makes them immune to tech/force abilities for 5 seconds afterward.

How the hell is someone just going to stealth out of the middle of a battle?! Either this effect should not happen in combat, or you need to be able to see them for 1-2 seconds after they stealth.

Pretty bad to try to open world pvp when a bunch of players can just stealth out of the battle and run away with no problems.

This just kinda ruins world pvp for me.

I mean if I am attacking someone in melee, and they insta-stealth, let me see them if they are next to me, or make their skill a 1-2 sec to activate so they cant just disappear while in the middle of a melee fight. Or give them 1/2 stealth for 1-3 seconds.

Very bad experience that my 1st open pvp world fight, ended with the dude just stealthing away in mid battle when I was winning. While invis he was able to easily go into his normal stealth and that was that. Very disappointing to say the least.

If he was winning I would have died, it is not like players lose anything on death, so why give so much advantage to an already good dps/tanking class.
Use an AoE you baddie
