SWTOR Removing pushback

Hey Gang,

This is something we are actively considering (re: removing pushback). There are a lot of little small things this would have a cascading effect on, the one that I (personally) am most concerned about are healers in PvP. Obviously we are taking baby steps towards that already with all of the skills that are removing pushback from important DPS specs, and there is some visceral feeling to beating a guy who trying to activate an ability and know you are slowing him down, but I’m not really sure the way the game has evolved it is appropriate anymore. Cast time abilities DO get a bonus to their power because of their cast time, but I feel like the net result is probably a negative for them at the moment. It leads to feast/famine syndrome, where if they are free casting we have to make things really good, because if they are getting beat on their ability output takes a massive hit.

No real answer here from me I guess, other than it is something under discussion, be it a full removal, a continuation of adjustment for DPS classes, or something else.
