Your comment here is unbelievably ignorant.

Doing Esseles HM and the guardian tank has 12k HP, the healer and the other dps are columni geared. Noticing my gunslinger is getting aggro quite often from trash pack even though I wait for aggro to build up for the tank. As soon I attack whatever the tank is attacking I get aggro immediately. I politely ask the tank to guard me so I don't steal threat. I get no response at all from the tank and all attempts to chat with him is met with silence. I'm thinking fine I'm on a European server so he is probably a Russian or something and everyone else in the group are super positive so I let it go.

Then when the tank keeps dieing on trash mobs I realize something is horribly wrong even though I and the healer seems to be tanking most of the trash. We eventually make it to Ironfist and the tank proceeds to die almost immediately despite interrupting headshot. The healer combat res him and top him up. But he dies almost immediately and soon after the rest of the group wipes. We try 5 times and keep wiping. I tell everyone to get up on the bridge so we can avoid aggro the trash that spawns in case it might help the tank survive.

It doesn't help at all and when the tank dies the second time and we wipe I whisper the healer and tell him to ignore healing the tank for the next try. We get up on the bridge and certainly, I steal aggro from the tank almost immediately and the tank dies on the first barrage again. But it turns out a gunslinger in rakata/bh gear can tank Ironfist with help of the defensive cooldowns and a healer blowing the entire resource pool healing him. I just found it hilarious a dedicated tank could be worse at tanking than a gunslinger and that a group finder PUG actually tolerated such poor performance from the tank without complaining. I think we spent 5 hours in there until downing the last boss with me tanking.

Been playing my healer Operative and it's getting to the point where I'm surprised when a tank guards someone and he and/or the DPS don't constantly break CC. I'm talking level 50 groups here...
I agree with this 100%. A few weeks ago I was doing False Emperor HM with some pugs. To my not so welcome surprise both the tank and the healer was very poor geared for this HM (only orange gear with purple mods lvl 48-50 and some Tionese gear) but I thought that I should give them a chance. How it went? Well we got wiped three times before even getting to first boss and there we got wiped three times. The healer did sadly enough his job poorly... And I don't even think he was a new player because he tried to explain tactics, that I knowed very well (and I also think that the tank and the other dps knowed) everytime we died. It's good that ppl explain tactics, but you don't need to do that everytime we die, most player are not stupid... Underrstanding that I would loose a ton of credits on repair (which I hate, why BW couldn't you use the money that you used to implement "repair" on so mini-games instead???) I just had to leave that group. Feeling really sorry for my group but there was no chance that we could complete it.... In differnce from the OP I couldn't laughg of the situation in that FP, I cried in pain....

Whoever thought the OP was rude is an idiot regardless of where they are from.

Edit added the was rude, was a bit important.
Apologies - I in no way meant to insult American people - just think that Europeans are a wee bit more open minded than our US fellow players! But please don't take me wrong - I was in a pug group the other day - and the healer healed nobody but himself - was funny for a bit but half way thorough we had to kick him from the group - on a European server!

Knocked back off the bridge and the Mara force lept at that exact moment.

You see malgus go flying down and then the mara right behind him.

I go to the edge, /yell Is he dead?
Mara reponds in party chat, "yep"
"oh good. Thank you for checking"
I know this sounds odd but it made me laugh SO hard!
This was a very funny story, thanks forv sharing
Imagine Luke jumping down the reactor tube (or whatever it is) in Episode 6 to check that the emperor really is dead
The scene might be like this :

Vader throws the emperor in the reactor tube
Emperor: Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
Then disappear for Darth Vader and Lukes sight.
Luke: Is he dead?
Vader: i don't know....
Luke: Shall I check?
Vader: Maybe so we are sure that we don't see his ugly face again.
Luke jumps...
Luke: Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
Luke sees emperors dead body.
Luke: He's dead Vader use force grip to pull me up!
Vader: No my son, no I will rule the galaxy ALONE!!!!!
Luke: Your *********
Luke dies....
Vader destroyes the rebels with the force and rules the galaxy in darkness.
THE END of Star Wars episode 6 alternative ending...
