HighwayStar, this post isn't directed at you, except the very first part, but I have to rant and your post reminded me. I'm glad you are waiting to see how it unfolds before writing the game off. More people should do that.
Which weapon is OP? How high has that weapon got you in the PVP ladder?
I think way too many people are selling this games PVP short, big time. Just because two noobs can faceroll at each other and do damage does not make that the end all be all of competition. I've seen one guy put three others on the ground without breaking a sweat or losing the control point. I have no idea how he did it, but he sure as heck wasn't facerolling. Just like a good fighting game, the devil is in the details, but two idiots can still pick up the game and press A over and over but one guy who actually knows how to play will make you look stupid over and over again. Accessibily vs depth. Playing a class is easy, but the second people have to play it WELL they all complain about spam and OP and the game isn't skill based enough to show off how awesome they really are. Give me a break. Why would you spam a cripple, an imobilize, a root, a stun, a stun breaker, a condition remover, blindness, vunerability, a distance closer etc? Just because they don't turn red like other MMO's to say "you can't cast that now!" or you put them all in one macro anyway? That is just poor play of the highest degree.
Another important factor, the winner isn't the team with the most kills, it's the team with the most point control. So even if one team is running entirely zerg based faceroll damage specs, one shortbow mobility spec thief could win the game by himself just going between control points and doing 0 damage. So while idiots are running around arguing complaining about 420XnoScopeX[MLG], absolutely nobody is worrying about team composition, pvp roles (mobility, control, flexibility, combos etc) instead of pve ones (lol damage), and most importantly, THE ACTUAL WIN CONDITION.
