Now imagine if you have 8 people taking the time to respec in a huttball.... yeah wouldnt turn out well
It doesn't take that long. In about 20 seconds I can be respecced and changed my bars (healer - dps on a sage doesn't require drastically different gear.

Say you are up 2 nodes to 1 in civil war. However, something unfortunate happens and you lose one. Would it be better to continuously assault the base with 1 tank 2 healers and 4 DPS? Or would it be better to take 20 seconds, get respecced, then attack the node with 6 DPS and 1 healer?

People already DO this though and it doesn't take as long as you think. It is easy to do it in the time it takes while waiting for a spawn timer on a door, on the civil war speeder, or in the minute prior to a match starting.

Since people already do it now when it costs a lot of money over time to do it constantly, no doubt more people will do it (and more often) when it's free.

Bump. Still looking for a yellow response if this is or is not intended.

I can respec and change my bars in about 30secs (scoundrel sawbones/scrapper) and sometimes do so in games where we have too many healers. I can see it being a very big issue.

Im curious about this too. This could completely change competitive/ranked warzones.

I'm not even seeing it as an issue. I just don't want to start changing a bunch of strategies in 1.5 to hear "Oops, we goofed. It's no longer functional in 1.6".

Pointed this out as well on PTS. Honestly best solution I see is to have a CD on Field Respec (15-20 min/ approx one WZ length) or to somehow disable it in a WZ.
