In the process of leveling 5th 50 pub on the pot5 server. I have noticed some hilarious and frustrating things while queuing for flashpoints. Tank jedi knights with endurance/willpower sabers and aim/ endurance implants that wipe on the first boss. Sage healers with strength/endurance sabers. Jedi knight tanks with wrong stat weapons again that will que as damage role and stay in soresu the whole time taking aggro away from you. People needing for things they don't need for their class then equip them right after. Numerous people not letting the tank attack first and just aggroing everything to themself. People that won't listen to you on final bosses that will stand in the fire on cademinu after you told them not to. PLEASE people this game is not hard read up on it search the forums you make it frustrating for people that want a quick run through these for gear. I literally LOL when I see tanks in flashpoints with the wrong gear on and when I try and call these people out on it they magically never respond. :facepalm:
I'm also on POT5 and I haven't really had any problems in the lowbie FPs (currently leveling a dps jugg and a healing commando). Maybe I've just been lucky.
Do I have problems with pug heroic FPs? Hell yes, it feels like either the tank or healer is completely incompetent in every single one I queue for. I'm sure I get a lot of incompetent dps too, but as a campaign/dread guard geared lightning sorc, I can usually carry dps (unless it's a gimmick fight).
I still don't understand how anyone can truly be awful at this game. The fights are not that hard to figure out and most classes are really easy to play (with a few exceptions, of course. Maras come to mind. That class has a ridiculously high skill cap). I'm pretty sure my mother, who has never played a video game in her life, could learn to play SWTOR if she really wanted to. I have no sympathy for baddies who feel like they don't need to lern2play because they are a SPECIAL AND UNIQUE SNOWFLAKE WHO IS PERFECT THE WAY THEY ARE. They shouldn't be queuing for heroics if they are unwilling to play (at the very least) somewhat optimally.
