while its true that ranger doesnt bring anything so special to a spvp, not a good teamfigher, not a good keeper and there is better roamers, im pretty sure i'll own all of you 1v1 whatever the class.

PvE or PvP / WvW I don't see Engineer quite often, if not at all. Wierd though because the class itself is wonderful. And it's not because of my undying love for it.

Elementalist are not bad in PvP! I focus on bleed and I'm doing great!

And Engineers are super rare :eek:. I don't know why.

Seriously though.
Its not going to be an overhaul, at best a few abilities will get a lil buffed.
Anet doesn't seem to have a dev team in favor of large edits to anythings when it comes to PvP...
They care about splashes to the meta or something silly.

At best longbow will be playable after the patch.
At least that's my guess.

They've definitely made pets better that's for sure.

Necros are by far the worst class and also the least played. Everything about this class is complete garbo except for their condition transfer skills.
Elementalists are pretty bad too except for their tanky specs.
Next up are Rangers, who suffer from bad pet AI in addition to lack luster weapon skills overall.

Everyone else is OK to overpowered. Thieves and Mesmers need some toning down in PvP in a bad way. Care should be taken not to hurt these classes in PvE, though, if possible. If anything, Mesmers need some serious help in PvE, as badly as some classes need help in PvP if not more so.

what did I just read. Necros are unstoppable if played right and Rangers can dish out some serious damage. My only problem is Elementalists :<

I wouldn't say there is a worst class, all play a specialized role and fit them perfectly. Though I would say rangers are one of the least effective classes in tPvP though. Easily countered, not a lot of viable specs and weapon sets to use too. At least they're getting some Anet love in the upcoming patch!

The least played is thief, imho. (Just kidding, probably engi or necro but I've been seeing a lot of them appearing in tPvP now.)

I think rangers are utter garbage atm i killed so many on my thief warrior and guardian its not even funny ther even more funny trying to roam in wvw every time i see one i know its gonna be a easy kill the only thing rangers have going for them is ther under water ability's if they catch you down ther killing pearls in WvW they can kill you if you dont run.

If by that, you mean ranger is a great 1v1 profession, then you should probably try out mesmer/thief/engi double pistol/ele semi bunker.  If by that you mean that skill has a bigger impact than minor differences in profession balance, I full heartedly agree --- And that's the way it should be. If you're a good player, you're valuable no matter what profession you choose.

At least that's my guess.

If they just buff pet a little, or change some mechanism regarding pet, and/or enhance pet related skills/traits, rangers would be at a much better place, both PvP and PvE. And these are pretty easy changes to make, so I'm betting on them changing pet for this "overhaul". :)
