Rolling a gunslinger isn't an "I win" button if that's what you mean. It's like any other class in TOR... it's only as good as you are.

GS is good, PvPd with sniper at 50, now levelling a GS as a reroll of sorts. Zero complaints.

Also, Scoundrels are not broken. Far from it.

lol You must be a healer, concealment is only fine against lesser geared opponents/clothes. Anyone who know there class can handle a scoundral. Why are there none in wz and the one left know there limits and never open on anyone but a wounded animal. Healer though are top of the top of the tops in pvp. Dps reroll somthing else you will find everything else is way more benefit in the dps department.

Stop playing into Bw scoundrals are fine. No one want them in rated WZ or Ops ;There is a problem.

Not at all, we have some amazing scrappers /concealment ops who everyone is afraid of in pvp, and we just did denova last night with one of said scrappers.

You'll find that a Scrapper/Concealment Agent is very much on par with Marauders and Tankasins when it comes to one on one combat. Provided he's properly geared and knows what he's doing, of course.

Granted, they aren't popular like FOTM Smash in RWZs, for obvious reasons, but they are, by no means, as weak as Ops who got too used to effortlessly dropping people from 100 to 20% in one stunlock before nerfs may claim. Check DarthNish's channel on youtube. He has some very fun Scoundrel vids, both healing and Scrapper. He also has tips and hints for those not yet fully comfortable with the class.

Having played a Concealment Operative to 50, primarily PvPing, I can assure you that this is not the case. Like any class, the concealment op has a problem fighting better geared opponents. But I have never had a problem where I continually lose against equivalently geared opponents.

The main drawback to the concealment op is that the "ambush from stealth" attack doesn't come until level 36. So prior to that level it's really a matter of just hiding and waiting for your opportunity to strike. But from 36 to 49, if you know what you're doing, you can single handedly swing a warzone's outcome. Once you hit 50, then it's back to the waiting game until you get geared up.

Um, that's how you're supposed to play a stealth class...

Only an idiot opens up right in the middle of a huge battle. You're basically begging for death if you do that. Smart players wait for the opportune moment, waiting for someone to stray away or taking out a low health target and quickly vanishing again.

If you're wanting stealth classes to be able to pop out whenever and own the entire battlefield you're basically asking for the class to be made OP.

That's what they were before the nerf. They could open on a full health PvP-geared tank, and, depending on crits and procs, could either kill him, or bring him down to 10-20% in one stunlock.
