I want to create an overview in which you can see certain specs countering other specs. I know, it is basically all about the individual playstyle and it doesn't matter which class you play, a better player always counters a worse one. Also, many classes are not supposed to go 1 vs 1, instead being a +1. But I know that there are certain weaknesses, and it is more LIKELY to counter them with a specific class. But I need opinions. I hope I listed all relevant classes / specs for pvp below...
The already filled out counters are not necessarily right, feel free to correct. I will adapt and edit this post regularly. Hope enough will participate. I had in mind mostly 1 vs 1, but not exclusively, as already said some classes / specs are better / prefered for teamfights, like Scourge.
I've read this thread https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/65003/thoughts-post-season-14-from-different-class-perspectives#latest multiple times to get some idea about the weaknesses of each class, but because I want a simple overview, this one is supposed to be a separate thread.
Below takes the form of:
