I have a short temper, so having a team full of monkeys is not healthy for me.
This is a SWTOR thread not WoW
I played a sorcerer healer pre and post 1.2, late teens and early 20s. Before 1.2 it was more fun, I was able to help my team out with healing, not alot of people focused on me and if I was attacked I ran away, and if they really wanted me dead they chased me across the map and I died. Pre 1.2 I wasnt OP, I didnt really know about the bug until it was gone, but I helped my team, I survived a little bit, but I still died often. Post 1.2 my healing really sucked, my survivability lasted seconds, couldnt run because I just died in place, got focused fire more often due to premades or people getting smarter, it wasnt fun anymore, I couldnt help out my team.
So I switched to my BH arsenal and changed to healing after 1.2, I was double the level 36. My healing was lower than my sorcerer but my survivability was alot longer, but my medal count dropped in half. My heals just didnt do alot for people. But the worst part is that Im getting stunned for half the game now.
So on my server Im getting targeted more often as a healer since patch 1.2 due to whatever reasons. It just depends on the server, plus my server has more republic players than empire players.
Its the same in every game, but Star Wars is worse.
Friend played it for a month, got to 50 etc, 3 months ago.. I watched him do an instance, or flashpoint call it whatever, after 2-3 hours they were still wiping on the level 30 something boss, that had 2 mechanics, move from fire and kill some adds that die in 2 seconds?
Something like that, no idea exactly what it was, but basically..the most basic thing possible in PvE, move from fire circle and taunt the add.
3 hours to get him, everyone was "This is my first MMO, because its Star Wars!" and there is your PvPers hitting 50 at some point.
Star Wars has many, many, many, many clueless people about MMO's even the most basic things, when it comes in PvP..Well good luck with those types...You get to roflstomp them, but when they are on your side..
Im guessing the reason we have no deserter debuff is because of all the bads?
I think actually being able to use marks in PuG PvP has made the Warzones on my server better than PuGing in WoW. It doesn't always work, but I have seen the tide of battle in a PuG change just thanks to marking.
I'm just going to chime in and say, yes, it sucks when people aren't targeting healers. HOWEVER, as a healer it sucks when everyone DOES instantly target you, especially after all the healing nerfs. When you go down so quick, it gets extremely frustrating, enough that I and other healers have wanted to stop healing. Then after that, people start to complain about how they always lose because their team never has healers. It's a vicious cycle.
Wait, you've lost to us Imps on Cancerous Oreo? I've lost 2/3's of the warzone matches between my sorc and jug, and am on a 26 lose streak. >.<
to me that aint a nerf enough lol. yea healers are supposed to have some survivability but COME ON all that firepower and they STILL live really that aint much of a nerf to me.
I will call you 1 of the unlucky ones that I get on and have others FINALLY realize that your the target to get after THEN get the caps, but hey I am the 1 dieing alot as well becuase the enemy healer is tellling his team to FOCUS on me so he can keep his teammates alive and ya know what ??? they LISTEN wish it was that easy for me
If you are having that much problem with a healer, the only thing I can think of is they outgear you, or you're not interupting/stunning.
theres actually a vote kick in swtor now im kinda curious to see how it works.. when i spot a healer ill go for him asap or cc him if hes midcasting.. i do interrupts as well.. currently playing a 31 imp sniper and man i can burst a healer down within 4-5 seconds ... flashbang the dps-> tunnel healer-> lol->
the thing ive noticed is.. if their team has a lot of healers.. they may be hard to kill but that means less dps on their team.. if ur healers can keep ur dps alive then they wont get anywhere..
i beat a team of 5 healers 3 dps vs my 2 healers 6 dps in Novarra Coast today..we capped south bunker and east and fought tooth and nail constantly for south.. their teammates never died but we didnt allow them to cap south so they lost..
Having alot of healers doesnt mean you win, usually you lose, unless they are hybrid specs then maybe you win.
