Roots

its that simple

They don't build resolve, have low CDs, and prevent operatives from rolling.
They can be cleansed (uses a gcd), evaded (uses a dcd), broken (stunbreaker or threat drop), or circumvented (utility that no-one takes in PvP). All those things have fairly long cds and will let you wreck an operative in the meantime.
In listing all of Operative/Scoundrelís counters to being rooted, youíve only reinforced the point about them not having many solid counters. As an Operative main myself, I can say with certainty that in such a situation, Iím going to pop dcdís and weather the storm. Then, Iím going to roll, stun, and melt you. Unless that root comes with a hefty side order of 3v1 stomping, or is applied at just the right time in just the right place, most competent Operative/Scoundrel players donít care about being rooted.

Same with Electro Net. Pop dcdís, survive, heal, turn around and sodomize the Merc/Commando who did it. Iím not saying it happens like this all the time, but it happens often enough that Electro Net doesnít feel like the instant-win button that people say it is.
