Too many points in what he summed up made me cringe
Maybe you are suffering from cognitive dissonance. I can elaborate if you want me to on any of the points I'm trying to make. If I come off as complaining its because I was a little frustrated when typing up this post. I'm 100% serious.

Does that mean with the balancing issues in the game I have to change to the FotM class instead of talking about it on the forums in vain hope BiOWare will do something about it? Does that mean that ability delay and misfiring of abilities is not an issue?

There is only so much one can do for herself, at one point one has to talk about issues with the game that could and should improve!

Adapt to the system! Normally that is totally against my nature. I'm an Anarchists! I dont believe in rulers. However, being in a video game we have certain rules we have to play by....

If a ranged DPS is killing you, LINE OF SIGHT them (LOS). If a melee is SMASHING you run away or CC them! These are simple solutions any class can use against these guys. If you are being stun locked by a stealthy CC them and run away! Dont let them get behind you!

Also make sure you know a good rotation!

If you are playing WZ's make sure you are aware of where your team is. Regroup and use FOCUS TARGETTING. If you dont know how to use FOCUS TARGETTING and you are a DPS learn! Click on my signature on twitch.tv/volantarism and watch the video called, " PvP UI Keybind Mouse Focus Target Game Changer Settings".

In WZ's COMMUNICATION before the fight is CRUCIAL!!! Make sure your team has an opening strategy! Who is going where and what are you guys doing on the first opening move???

If you are defending your job is to call out INCOMING enemies. WHERE AND HOW MANY!! Example: w3, s4,e1...

Learn to use your map A LOT!! Check your map WHILE DEAD. Dont waste the time you are behind the gate picking your ***... CHECK YOUR MAP!!! Also let people know how many "ticks" are left on the spawn door. Each quarter of the door in is a "tick" and I think is a 4 second count...

Make sure to use a lot of cooldowns on the opening.... this will set you up for the lead. Dont try to capture a node until you clear out the enemy team. I see people trying to ninja cap far too often when there are 3 enemies present... Ninja caps can work but are getting a lot more rare.

Dont forget to use your CC's on the opening and dont whitebar/max resolve the enemy. Try to CC enemies that arent full resolve or low resolve.

Melee... Please dont overextend into the enemy team! Stay in a good position, kill the enemy that overextends into YOUR teams line! Especially the guy that leaps to your healer....

For many examples check out my twitch.tv/volantarism feed and archived videos! I stream almost every day and keep an archive with live commentary!

Have FUN! and DONT GIVE UP!!!! Players that play with the "Die Hard" mentality, fight to the death, never give in, try harder will win more games. Dont get demoralized if your team is getting wooped.... TRY HARDER. Make the impossible come back! DONT LEAVE THE GAME!!!
FINALLY OUT OF ALL THESE PEOPLE WHO DEMAND NERFS FOR EVERYTHING JUST BECUASE THEY ARE TOO LAZY TO LEARN HOW SOMEONE MAKES SENSE!

Seriously people, when you see saber reflect go up on a guardian or juggernaut don't attack, that's how I kill a lot of guys in pvp, even got myself damage medals for it. Interupt heals and stun healers and quickly dps them down. when you see a smash maurader coming your way either use a pushback or just stun and run, they just wasted their gap closer on you so if you get more than 10 meters away its only a matter of ranging them or waiting for them to waste ther smash on empty space before engaging them in melee.

Never demand nerfs, demand buffs to counter what you think is OP.

And to be honest if all classes are played by the same person there are going to be huge differences between effectiveness of each AC regardless. Because of bad class balance there is nothing I can change about myself to counter that other than playing the better class.

Class balancing is something that NEVER ends in MMO's.... I've played MMO's long enough to know that they are designed and optimized for PvE because that is the bulk of what MMO's attract. PvP is always the minority and we get thrown scraps.

I would highly recommend (if you are serious about PvP and that is your focus in the game) to definitely try to level at least every class to level 20 or 30 and then pick 1 of each role to level to 55 (RDPS, MDPS, Heals, Tank, and something that can stealth). This will do many things. It will help you understand each classes strength -- and weakness. It will allow you to be more creative when you are fighting against or playing these classes. It will allow you to have a FOTM to play. Sadly this is a problem with almost every MMO PvP I have played and I have been playing for 10 years various MMO's. Right now a scoundrel can cover most of those roles and my scoundrel is only level 27. I personally like a challenge and often pick underdog classes and try to do well on them.

This is my biggest beef with SWTOR! And you are right its a HUGE ISSUE! A lot of people dont even seem to notice this problem and this is a core issue that made me quit the game 2.5 months ago! I call it something different but its the same thing. The GCD animation lag. Its gotta be a graphical issue, a coding issue, or a server lag issue. I'm not a tech so I really dont know what is causing it but it really gets me worked up when I hit an ability, I get a GCD animation and then the ability doesnt cast OR sometimes I will even see the animation of my character executing the ability and then it shows up on my hotkey that it didnt even go off! This should be BIOWARE's #1 PRIORITY. If its not fixed soon I'll be moving on again to other games and unsubscribing. I'm not willing to pay for a broken game and this issue is far from a small fracture -- its a gaping chasm...
