Operator IX HM: Self Deletion?

We have had the following happen a couple of times, would like to know if this has happened to anybody else.

Two players (A, B) are a particular color, say blue. They have agreed that Player A will do the first blue deletion, and Player B the second one. Blue deletion comes up on a different player (C), so Player A does color deletion on player 'C'. Now, next time Blue deletion comes up, it will be Player B's turn to do the deleting. Later on in the fight, blue deletion comes up again, except this time, it is on Player 'B' (blue deletion for Player B even though he is blue!). Player 'B' cannot self delete their own color, so that player dies.

This happened to us two times, one time each on two different nights.

Is this a bug, bad RNG, or something else?

You can clear your own colour deletion, so it should be a non-issue (Player B should in the quoted example save himself).

Where self deletion can go horribly wrong is if it happens earlier. If you started with a blue deletion on Player B, and Player A moved to save him, both Player A and B would use their buffs to save Player B, leaving you a blue buff short for the 2nd blue deletion. In this event, Player A should not move to player B, so only B's buff gets used, and Player A will switch to the 2nd blue deletion.

So, how is this done? Normally, it takes two people to clear it -- the one to do the deleting runs to the person being deleted, and the deletion is removed by the two people standing next to each other.

Is it as simple as clicking off the buff?

When it's happened to us, the person with the deletion just stands still - it'll cleanse all by itself.

Ok, thanks -- will try that. When it has happened to us, they have just died. But they were also most certainly moving around.

Also on a side note if someone gonna get data deletion and there is no one that can protect them have them run and die away from the raid. The enrage timer/ healing require for the fight is rather weak.
