I have always utterly and despised people who needed on items they can not possibly use and win them. only to sell them rather than a person who could use it get it.


First Esseles run:Sentinal ninjas my chest piece

Second run:Sage ninjas my boots

No other troopers were in the group except me.

Are these people brain dead or something? Or using it for their companions? Hell If I know but This is really annoying me. I've sent a ticket and I doubt i'll get anything but the "OH THANKS FOR REPORTING THIS PERSON BUT SCREW YOU" macro'd response.


Ugh. Just hate

I do not understand this mentality of gameplay. I need for what my main needs, pass on what the other players need, and greed for the in-between stuff.

Get used to it. I know it sucks but it happens ALL THE TIME.

Sad thing is people are gonna start posting here trying to defend that stuff...

I want to change the rolls to 1-49 for greed, 50-100 for need, 75-100 for class specific need rolls (assassin rolling for a double lightsaber, sniper rolling for a sniper rifle etc...) and 50-100 for all others. At least give us a better chance at getting an item we actually NEED over some idiot rolling need on an item he wants

They should just implement a system to prioritize need based on class. At the very least, it shouldn't be hard to check if the main stat of the player is present on the item they are rolling for.

I've called people out for this. I asked a Shadow why he needed on a piece that my GS actually needed. He said he needed it for Theran. So then I nicely explained to him that need is for self and greed is for companions. Otherwise if you need it ask.

I hate with a passion when people do that non sense.

Instant votekick and /ignore. People vote for kicking ninjas in 99.9% occasions. At that point the guy can enjoy his 15-minute lockout, then rot in a long queue as DPS (since tank and healer ninjas are infinitely more rare, and I usually occupy one of those roles anyway).

Yep...watch people pour in to defend needing on everything. Self-centered people will spout out any sort of BS that springs to their mind in order to "justify" themselves(or convince themselves that it's acceptable even if, at the back of their mind, they know it's not). The worst people I've come across need on an item they can't use, then try to sell it to their teammate. Disgusting.

As someone already posted, vote kick and ignore these people. There's no reason to put up with them.

Excellent candidate for the ignore list, it seems. Good thing you don't get matched with them in group finder, while they're still on the list.

I think I've gotten really lucky with FP groups most of the time because I usually don't have problems with ninjas, but I had the exact same experience as the OP yesterday.

I was tanking SM Taral V on my Vanguard and after downing the first boss, an Aim shield dropped. I needed on it but so did the other two Sages in the group, one of whom won the shield.

I demanded to know why they had needed on the shield in the first place since their class can't even use shields and the sage that won the roll replied that he didn't know what the heck he was doing and was just following the lead of the other sage in the group.

OK...fine...how you could get to level 30 something and not know what your class uses is beyond me, but I explained that you only roll need on items you can use and greed on everything else.

The sentinel in our group piped in also asking why the sages had needed on the shield. The other sage (who had also rolled need but hadn't won the shield) typed "Well I rolled need because I wanted to give it to Qyzen".... At this point I was about to lose my temper so I asked the sage who had won the roll to trade me the shield. He typed, " oh I guess teammates come first before companions?" and did nothing.

I waited for a few more seconds then to told them to L2P and that if they wanted to ninja stuff they could go find themselves another tank.

If you are DPS it is in your best interest not ninja stuff from the tank, because if he gets pissed and leaves group or vote kicks you, he can find another group or DPS right away....whereas a DPS has to sit in queue for another millennia lol

Add Jessicalife and Fatk to the list of ninjas in this game.

i mostly group up with my lvl 17 Sorcerer or lvl19 Juggernaut and i notice this alot at those levels, does it get more or less common at higher levels? I ran BT with a Lvl 50 player who basically just ran through BT like it wasn't there and passed on pretty much everything. I asked if he wanted anything to let me know, and he said he didn't need anything you could get outside of pvp these days. Thoughts? Stuff like this hammers home how little i know of SWTOR and mmos and how much more i have to learn.
