As said above, before jumping to the gun and claiming a class is too strong, perhaps it is best to revise ones own playstyle. Why is it best? Well for one, learning to play your class will give you the edge in all PvP encounters, not just "my class vs class X". Secondly, you wont have to wait indefinitely for when and if BioWare tweak class balance in your favor.
I like you.

Some classes stack like a charm. Nothing uglier than getting 4-5 healed smashers carving craters all over the map.

Another EA MMO found a solution to that: beyond a certain number, the damage done by multiple of same class using the same skill(s) gets discarded.

Ah, the eternal L2p argument and you are a baddie routine. Yeah we all need to L2P when you go into a warzone with your sage healer, maxed out expertise, you face, 3 smashers, 2 snipers, 1 jugg tank, 2 operative healers. You go in there, the first menage a smash is on you, all dishing 8k per hit. You pop the barrier cos you lost 27k of your hp from all fo them. You are there with a tad of hp, barrier goes off, 10k vicious slash. You go back with your team, sniper hits you for 6k, jugg uses force push, jug leaps, 8k smash, second jugg leaps, smash, 8k takedown from snipers. Life expectacy 3s tops. Your Guardian tank has been marked, you have been marked, you go back in, the damage on both of you is so much that you either send two three heals to your guardian tank or you heals once yourself before you die.

Conclusion? You take 1 million damage, the 3 juggs do 1.4 million dmg each and the two snipers do 900k each. This was a warzone I did recently on TOFN and I can say one thing for all you gurus S T F U with your L2P and you are a baddie. Damage is out of control on FOTM classes. 10k viciious slash on full expertise people? I don't even think expertise works.So go back to WoW or whatever MMO under you rock came from and say there L2P or that class balancing is fine.


So after that warzone, I vendored this PoS Conqueror gear BioWare has given me as it clearly does not work if I am hit like that. I will PVP from now on in my BIS Underworld on all my toons. No point in farming gear just to die in 3 seconds.

Yep, it's all agents and warriors. OP heals, sniper dps and smashers of both classes. Why would you bring anything else?

I'm not seeing smashers as much as pre-2.0, pre 55 and 55 wzs (non ranked of course). Every wz seems to have 2+ op healers, snipers and sorc/sages. Maybe 1 or two of the other classes, but these are the big three fotm atm.

Needed to vent :3
so you are saying you only play one high lvl character, u keep getting stomped in pvp and somehow it is somebody elses fault?

i play all 16 characters, i find if the chars have proper gear and know wut you are doing they are all effective. i have not played any of the chars and thought "gee this char sucks, no way it could be me. bioware must fix the game so that no matter what char i play i am the only OP person in the entire game and i can kill whole enemy team with a single basic attack."

this can be fixed with 3 simple steps

get better gear, learn to play, stop crying.

I think I was in those WZs you have been in. Those synced smashers 1 shot everyone and everything, it was like 45 kills each and 7 digits damage vs 1-2 kills for the opponents at the end of each WZ. Very fun... for them.

Everyone always rolls FOTM specs after "balancing". Marauders and Powertechs got a nerf, so you don't see much of them anymore.

if ur team gets wrecked that fast its cuz the entire team is worse than the enemy team. u cry about jugs, take a guardian, u cry bout maras take a sentinel, u cry bout snipers take a gunslinger.

wow amazing thats a 4 man team with a tank, melee/aoe dps, ranged dps and your healer.
both factions have the mirrors of every advanced class with the exact same skills, just different names and animations. u guys just mad cuz u dont win 100% of the time.
