Please tell me you're joking? That would center PvP around cc and make it worse than it is now. As a Sorcerer, non-healer, I can't hardly keep a melee class away from me. It's unbalanced. I slap Force Slow, CT, Jolt and most of them just keep walking right to me and control me. If they're really planning to do this, then they need to fix the ccs and stuns first.

So i just got my operative to 50 a little bit ago, and will say i finally understand these threads. (50 on assassin isnt bad b/c you have so many tools to counter cc, and lowbie isnt as bad in general) For classes w/ no counters and less mobility its bad.. W/ that said though, i think maybe 25% less would be good, a moderate amount... I actually find games like guild wars where there is very little cc incredibly annoying because it can feel like you are perpetually chasing people down.

Call the medal Spectator. Although I'm sure for some of you, you would realize the time you're stunned isn't as high you think :P

And the KB , true. Now, since it sounds apocalyptic, let's take a closer look at those. Mind Maze, Force Lift, Low Slash are mezzes. Mind Maze can only be used from stealth and only against a target that's not in combat, Force Lift takes 2 seconds to cast both fill 800 resolve. Low Slash has a mezz attached but it's an attack that needs to hit for the mezz to apply but all in all is a good ability that allows a shadow strike set-up (remove the "hit from behind" prerequisite on that, like the rail shot, and nobody will miss low slash). Fills 400 resolve. Spinning kick only usable from stealth for Infil Shadows, good solid 2 sec knock down (400 resolve). Force stun is your common all classes stun , fills 800 resolve. "Farce" Wave is a defensive knock back also standard for many classes (400 resolve). So, when you are fighting a shadow you only have to fear Force Stun and the Low Slash. Spinning kick is very situational and it should be used only to interrupt a cast because if you used it as an opener you gain nothing since the 1.5s GCD will almost cover the knock down duration but your target gains 400 resolve. Mazes are cool to delay and wait for reinforcements but not that much in combat value.

There needs to be more STUNS AND CC in WZ its the BEST idea Bioware ever made!!!! *end of sarcasm*

Who ever thought it would good idea to have these many stuns and CC in WZ would make pvp fun needs to be shot.

Stuns and CC are completely out of control at this point, things need to change.

1 stun and CC/Root per class and those cd's should be tied to grenade cd's. I honestly think 1.4 made the problem worse not better. Nothing more FUN! then being stuned,then rooted, use resolve, then get stun, rooted again constantly

Typical reaction to end game content from fresh level 50.
