Okay, so Bioware reads the forums, the classes that say they need buffs get nerfs (e.g. sorcs), and the ones that need nerfs, get buffs (e.g. maras). Hence the only conclusion I can draw to help us out is to vociferously complain about how overpowered we are.

So, I guess spam the PTS forum with threads on how awesome sorcs are.

No, because BW refuses to listen to sorcs no matter what.

I believe the desperate solution is for us to all roll smashmonkies, and complain and QQ about how little challenge there is in sorc smashing.

You don't believe they actually listen to our feedback, do you?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVQZJ...ature=youtu.be iirc sorc burst is fine (and fun!) in pvp. also correct me if im wrong but some rwz games happened in the pts over the weekend, the bastion vs pot5 (~2 guilds), and i think they used lightning sorcs there to great success.

On my pvp Server, the pyros and snipers would kill you in 3 sec .
Seldom seen such a bad opponent. Completely unrealistic this video.
Only in a group with privat healer ist lightning an option.

So 2.0 hasn't even gone live yet and the bads are already QQing. It's not the class. It's you.

The issue isn't actually damage as much as survivability. The devs have nerfed pretty much all sorcerer CC and given no significant alternative for survival. You can't cause damage from the grave...

Yeah, must be my imagination then that classes like marauders and powertechs are simply outclassing sorcerers in dps for wzs, or operative healers are simply the better choice as a wz healer.

Am I simply misremembering sorcs have been successively nerfed since 1.2? Guess so. Wow, I must really get my memory checked.

And 2.0 might not be live, but PTS is a strong indication, and all I see are nerfs, because relatively speaking other classes get buffs too, and we are in a worse place. Bubble stun gone, instant whirlwind gone and instead of a proper defensive on a decent cooldown we get a stupid self-stun on 3m cooldown. And how often does Bioware change stuff on PTS to live? How about almost never.

Brilliant.

But hey you keep calling people bads and declaring sorcerers the FOTM OP class, must be working since you seem oblivious to the next round of incoming nerfs. Well done you! I'm glad you're happy.
