Operatives are they OP?

I know Scoundrels are mirrors to operatives and I don't have one but Operatives seem OP to me in PvP. Just did an Alderan Warzone an Operative hit me and it flashed up 5.4k, from one hit. I don't think he was in stealth. I checked the damage charts at the end and his highest hit was 5.4k. That's about 40% of my health gone in one hit, this same player was also taking me down to about 30% health in a series of stun locks and I was seeing hits of 3k+ popping up on my screen.

I'm level a 38 Balance Sage and he was level 50. Can Scoundrels do that to? Is it just operatives? Should they be able to hit that hard? She they be able to stun lock players like this while doing so much damage? He didn't seem squishy either as me and 2 others took a long time to finally kill him when we got him surrounded.

It's a problem with the imbalance of level 50's atm. Their gear finally outruns bolster and Operatives can easily 4 shot tanks.

Lower level Operatives are far lesser of an issue.
I have faith in Bioware and Mythic to deliver a good game. I have more faith in myself to decide in an unbiased fashion whether or not it is good. Neither has any impact on the fact that I will kill you.

Ops and Scoundrels are OPS dont listen to him, even 50 know that.

Concs (and let's face it, people whining about Ops mean conc spec) until 36 are fairly bad. Once they get hidden strike they're death to lower hp players (be they injured or lowby) standing on their own.

OP? Not really, just hella annoying.
Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of your opponent's fate.

nothing wrong with a 7k opener when you have only 12000.

Sith Mara.

I don't really have a problem with them. I did die when 6 of them popped on me all at the same time. LOL

My trooper has heavy armor and Operatives/Scoundrels can half life me in 1 back stab/back shot.

Armor does not mean anything unless you are an actual tanking spec. Are they overpowered? Hard to tell, but they are REALLY really strong. So much so I've seen a huge rise of them on my server.

Dirty and cheap pvp is popular, thats the ugly truth (AKA Stealth)

No knockbacks, no sprints, no leaps. But we can have a decent opener vs cloth lowbies if our stealth doesn't get broken by aoe spam. Not to mention its a pain to get out of combat to restealth. Hardly OP. Not to mention we're melee with very weak ranged attacks. Knock us off the ramp in Huttball and we're next to useless.
