Owned in PvP  
Ok. I get owned in PvP. I do hero's side. Usually I get two-shotted by someone stealthed, or I can't seem to do any damage.

What are the others doing (or not doing) that I'm not (or am)?

What is your AT and levels are you using? Are you PvPing in a zone, or the arena?

Quick note: one thing to start with is that Player accuracy is lowered to a base of 50% while fighting other players. Normal PvE accuracy is 75%.

Unfortunately, unless you have one of the FotM builds for a particular AT, it's difficult to be awesome at PvP from the get-go. The flavour builds are strong because they take advantage of the usual weaknesses most ATs have with strong resistance and/or damage type toward others.

PvP is something you have to learn a lot about and practice for a while before you get decent at it. And often those that are best at PvP are those using ridiculous builds, so it's a big hill to figure how to get over.

Keep at it, and there are a handful here who can probably give you more specific advice toward PvPing.

At a guess you're doing zone PvP rather than arena? Zone is tricky; even my storm defender gets ganked there (although it takes a lot of stalkers to do it). The real key for making zone PvP work is to get onto a team and stick together.

Arena is a little different, and rewards different sets. Without knowing what you're doing, it's hard to advise; that said I've made a career of making squishies dangerous, so it can definitely be done.

I'm with everyone else here. Let us know what you are PvP with and we'll help you figure out how to make it work.

I'm using a Rad/Rad Defender (30ish) , a Fire/Fire Tank (50) and a MA/Regen Scrapper (40ish).

I'm going to PvP zones.
