Honestly if they kept 2.4 the way it is currently I simply cannot WAIT for it to go live. All those believers in 2x smash will have a rude awakening.
Agree to some degree however Drama ran Jug/Mar x2/Op and is 80-1 or something around 80 wins, with 1 loss to Dongcleave. What does that tell us? Really that its all relative. Teams that have played together for while have an advantage of teamwork and familiarity. It need to play out a little longer for a meta to develope as well as player strats.

and on op heals being easy to play. Its easy to be average, but not everyone is Scold or Hood-rat.

Sounds like an op healer getting defensive right? Well mind you I also play merc and commando heals along with other classes.

Troll away.

I main a sorc for healing and totally agree with you, good arena teams will force an Operative healer to cast heals (addresses the energy management issues), and roll is basically useless.

I do think they still have a bit much in the utility department - an increased CD on their 4 second stun, disable conceal in arena, and all instant aoe mezzes should be reduced/removed.

I agree with that. I can see taking/toning down my flashbang if they did something with intimidating roar

edit: Cut the mez time in half but let concealment have it in their tree where it gets the full length because God knows they need every little bit of help.

That doesn't sound as hilariously aggressive as dongcleave.

Can you please specify why the guardian/juggernaut Tank is so much better?
