Sure every MMO consists of doing dungeons/raids whatever to get the best gear. Though, there's usually other things that branch off from that to kill time. This game has nothing even remotely close to end-game I've seen in other MMO's.

That leaves PvP. I'm not going to lie, I've been a fan of SWTOR PvP for a while, though it's been getting worse after each update. 2.0 recently hit and it's by far the worst PvP update I've been here for yet. TTK is stupidly low, and PvP basically runs on stuns/roots/mezz. Again, every other MMO I've played, their stuns last about 2 seconds and have a long cooldown. They are meant to be to help you at a pinch. Though for some reason the devs seem to think that we each need multiple stuns/roots and even some mezz for each and every fight.

I've been growing less and less amused by PvP and I just can't take it any longer. I think the devs forget that the PvP community make up a huge proportion of their player base, but they just don't seem to give a damn.

Been playing for many months now, majority of the time with 2 accounts subscribed. Also payed for plenty of Cartel Coins and many hours on the phone to CS. If I'm getting no enjoyment out of the game and my money (and everyone elses) doesn't seem to be doing much then I think it's time to move on.

I'll play until my subscription runs out, and hopefully by then I've found something more enjoyable to play.
Please, sort PvP out.

Anyways, rant over. Flame or whatever as you please.
I really like this game, and normally I'd be inclined to rip you a new one, but I'm inclined to agree. PVP is a little out of control right now. Healing is waaaaaaaaaay op. I've seen healers get focus fired by 4 guys and stay up. That's insane. Roots and stuns are ridiculous. Many of them don't break on dmg and they last for 3-6 seconds. I'm pretty geared, almost have my full pvp set at 55 and I'm continuously pulling my hair out right now because I'll have guys stun me and even with my cooldowns popped 2/3 of my hp will be gone before I come out of the stun. It gets worse when you have some classes that have 2-3 stuns that do this. As a melee class I get eaten for breakfast, it's very frustrating and not fun. Before Hutt Cartel I did decent. I wasn't the best but I was consistently in the top 5. Now I can't contend.

Go see the healer complaint thread. There is no way a healer being focus fired on by four guys is staying up on his/her own (other than for a short time, depending on the long cd defense power). If you actually saw this happening, there was probably a tank guarding him and/or another healer helping out, if the four players actually were focus firing on him as you say.

Had a really resilient healer in some WZs tonight and it was because he was paired with another healer and tank. Once you started hitting both healers, it got a lot easier, though it was still a challenge (and it should have been).

Oh, and I wish I could get a Tank or even DPS to back up my healer when he's being trashed like that... hardly ever happens unless I'm with my guild. A healer can hold out in a 1 vs 1 or a 1 vs 2 (for a bit, or retreat), but 4... yeah. Not so much if the players are semi-competent.

What relay bathers me, that with each update the PvP gets more and more dumb, every time i think OK this is it, it can not get any more retarded, it does. BW keeps adding more stun, heal, bubble each time. Perfectly clear they try to increase survivability to make even the worst PvP-ers happy. "No bad is too bad for SWTOR PvP, we make you win!" must be their slogan.

Define irony. A grammatically incorrect sentence that accuses others of having a low IQ.

Gonna play devil's advocate here, I asked a bunch of friends how was WoW's endgame content after the first year and most of em agreed it had waaay less endgame content after the first year mark than swtor.

I want em to remove bolster and throw in 20k per wz and I can deal.

There's still plenty left to do, fp's, ops, re roll other characters, etc. I played a free trial of wow and thought it was terrible, dunno but hey, to each his own man.
