    Default Class %'s at launch

    i predict it will be 40% rogues, 25% warriors, 20% clerics, and 15% mages.

    Was gonna play a mage but I'm rolling a rogue on release.

    Stupidly imbalanced difference between the two.

    Plus I can always roll a rift and tank, or a bard and heal!

    you must be getting into some different warfronts than i am
    i remember i had 1 match today that was almost all yellow names when i looked at the score so i counted them up

    out of 40 total people (for both teams) i saw
    24 rogues
    10 warriors
    3 clerics
    3 mages

    Of course ive only seen it this bad once but still, thats pretty ridiculous
    if that doesnt prove that classes need a balance, i dont know what will

    PvE Server - 35% Rogues - 25% Warriors - 20% Mages - 20% Clerics
    PvP Server - 40% Sab/MM - 30% Vk/Rb (unless the nerf is bigger than I heard) - 10% other rogue souls - 8% Mages - 8% Clerics - 4% other Warrior Souls

    Default I think the numbers are misleading.

    You have to look at the environment of open beta.

    Casters will go up in numbers once people start working in groups/guilds more often. They'll have better protection to do their roles, where as in the current PUG everything environment they get little. And when crowd control starts becoming a premium because every battle isn't just a bunch of running around blindly smacking stuff, then the dynamics start to change. And so on.

    With all the PUG/solo action, the rogue class is the class of choice. When I see guilds and such in game now, I don't see 30 rogues. I don't see that many rogues at all. Lots of tanks, casters and clerics. What you see in warfronts and such is a bunch of solo people.

    I hope you're right. Especially pertaining to that last sentence. I hope once the game goes like we start seeing some actual teamwork in Warfronts instead of just a mob of people attacking the first red name they see.

    Probably should also consider the fact of a 50% chance the clerics weren't healers.

    Ever thought that it might not be because of skill imbalance but instead cool imbalance?

    Which is cooler, a Necromancer or a Fighter?
    Assassin or Healer?
    Dark Knight or White Knight?

    I mean when I went and chose my rogue, it was "Oh look I can be warrior, mage, cleric, or rogue." and I chose rogue. Then I got my list of souls and was llike "Sweet! this one blows stuff up. that's awesome." and chose sabby.

    I think thats the biggest problem right now, and one of the reasons every one is QQing over Sabby, is that lots of people play it due to the rule of cool, and have since figured out ways to make it really awesome. Then we get some random schmo who tries to play a warrior and gets killed by the sabby and runs to the forums to cry about it.

    while i do agree some people pick classes for aesthetic appeal, sabs would not be as "cool" if they sucked
    they are only "cool" because they can 1 shot some people with very high crits

    I had heard that there were tons of clerics in Beta, although I didn't see that many myself. I'll be a cleric healer myself. I've never really been much into rogue type classes, I'll probably go mage or warr for my dps alt.
