This footage is from a match this past week. When i get less than 30 meters away from the goal line I get the stunfest of my life. Over a minute of roots and stuns until I can finally score.

I have had time where I had negative progress from 30m from goal after a minute has passed.

I've always seen people complain about roots and stuns but I never understood why until that match. Lucky for me the team we were fighting didn't do so well in the dps department.

Even now I still think the system is ok and that could most likely be because I am so used to it. However I can also see where some people might get frustrated.

My HP wasnt the point I could have passed it if someone would have gone across the line for me but no one thought to do so.

If you're getting massively CCed there's obviously a ton of people around you and passing is just downright dangerous in that environment, especially if you're not in actual danger of dying. Note that if they KB/pull whoever you're passing to, that's usually a guaranteed turnover or interception.

It's a pretty rare occurence to actually be moving backwards with the ball. Usually they would have to have 2 guys who can grapple to pull it off. It's no big deal, just very annoying when you realize despite attempting to move forward you ended up further from the goal after a minute of attempted progress.

Yea thats why I held onto it, I had my defensives and a healer behind me. I figured if I passed to the mara he would have been rooted and killed.

I have to commend you J_Fred, through all of that you managed to score. This video could be a training vid for tanks of all calibre. Simply an outstanding job on your part on those who were supporting you. I'm sure the Pubs were raging about you being unkillable and possibly haxz! LOL. Great job and video thanks for sharing.

Thnks, tho most of the credit would have to go to Andreus for his awesome heals. I'm sure they were calling hax for the second time they pushed me, somehow I teleported right back onto the line

Would it be so bad to fill the resolve bar faster, make the stuns shorter, or add a five second immunity between them?
