    I'd bet on mage/support (archon & dominator).

    well id have to assume a tank mage is probably the rarest class/role combo.

    lol what the bard is the most played rouge class on every server i see 5 rouges atleast 3 of them are bards

    for warrior i would say Paragon or warlord from my personal experiance.

    for mage archon / and dominator

    for cleric prob justicar / sent/ and purifier because everyone says he sucks.

    for rouge i dont really know im not familiar enough with the class

    There are lots of bad soul combos. You can't just choose a soul and run with it in this game, you have to get abilities that work together from the souls that you choose. I highly discourage playing a specific soul just because it isn't played very much. Instead, figure out what it is that you want to do - CC is pretty underplayed in this game - and figure out what soul combination will give you the best ability to do that.

    Yesterday I had a Black Garden match and the Defiant team had 5 bards with their fang holder.
    We did eventually win, but man, I never wanted to see another bard again.

    Mage/CC.

    I've seen one dominator out of the dozens of matches I've run and they're practically invisible in Rifts.

    I'd consider bards to be the fastest leveling class, paired with a decent finisher.
    Cadence gives you 3 combo points, power chord gives you two for a total of 5.
    You can then use your finisher.
    It's the fastest way to get combo points and get finishers off. Add to that the bard self healing and party buffs that will rank you to the top in rifts and I am kind of doubting it's the underdog here.

    I mean rogues _are_ all about the finishers for damage, the faster you can get them off the more damage output you'll have.

    for mage the least played is maybe archon atm.
    And the most played in the tree are dominator (in pvp) and chloromancer most likely.

    cc will be the least played role if you separate it... but only bc there are a few classes that can qualify as it. Its actually has a larger player pool to demand than a few other roles imo.

    Tanks.

    Healers and DPS seem to be a dime a dozen, but tanks are no where to be found.

    smart mages go dom for pvp. Not a lot of reason to go anything but stormcaller or chloro for rifts based on how contribution is determined.

    In my experience, mages are the least played class. Crowd control is also the least played role. Interestingly enough, mages are the only class that can be crowd control, and it is really the only thing they do well.
