prediction: RWZ season 1 champion team composition

8 advance classes. 8 slots on a rated wz team. Season 1 coming down the pike soon.

Given what we know about 2.0 class balance from PTS, assign a probability to each advanced class. The probability is the likelyhood that the champion of RWZ season 1 brings that class to the final match(es). Extra credit: you can mention the spec (e.g. we expect an op healer but maybe not a concealment op).
  1. Guardian / Jugg
  2. Sentinel / Marauder
  3. Sage / Sorc
  4. Shadow / Assassin
  5. gunslinger / sniper
  6. scoundrel / operative
  7. commando / merc
  8. vanguard / powertech

We don't really know how much class balance tuning is going to happen between the public release of 2.0 and Season 1 RWZ but lack of knowledge never stopped anyone from speculating.

I'll start off by saying that there is 0% chance that the champion team has a DPS commando/merc.

Love the optimism.

  1. Merc dps
  2. Madness assassin
  3. Madness assassin
  4. Concealment op
  5. Anna Mara
  6. PT Tank
  7. 2x Merc heals

One of the assassins will have to guard a node but anything but this is a fail.

I like the thread sorry everyone had to crap on it, so I'll take a real stab at it.

1. smash marauder
2. smash juggernaut
3. smash marauder or juggernaut
4. healer operative
5. healer operative
6. sniper
7. sniper
8. tank/dps hybrid assassin

like you said mercs are out if you really want the best team, powertechs have been nerfed to the ground, instead of glass cannons they are glass handguns not to mention the new shoulder cannon is lame and only an exceptional sorcerer would be even part useful. I think 3 (6) of the 8 (16) classes are locked out of real competitive PvP now.

My guesses:

Tanks:

Jugg / Guardian tank
Shadow / Sin nodeguard tank

Heals:

Sage / Sorc
Operative / Scoundrel

Those are pretty much set in stone IMO:

now for the DPS -

Focus Guardian / Sentinel / Marauder / Jugg -> no explanation needed here.
Combat Sentinel / Carnage Marauder -> these hit like a truck. plus their utility is a must.
Sniper / Gunslinger (not sure on spec right now. if I had to guess either Eng / Sab or MM / SS)

And then for the last DPS...

With the nerfs to pyrotech...

Still. Pyrotech in the last spot i suppose.

I don't mind people joking around but it is nice to see a serious response.

Really? Who bring two, much less 3 snipers to rated in the current live release? In my survey a while back people brought 0 or 1 snipers to their rateds. As for PTS, did anyone bring 3 snipers to rateds (not counting the bolster bug matches)?

I don't imagine the composition will change much. Snipers received a decent buff in 2.0--but they stack poorly ... I'd rather stack dps sorcerers than snipers.

  1. Juggernaut - Tank
  2. Operative - Heals
  3. Sorc - Puddle Heals
  4. Marauder - Carnage
  5. Powertech - Pyro
  6. Powertech - Pyro
  7. Sniper - Map-depending
  8. DoorHumperAssassin - who cares.
Something pretentious.
