Misqueue Etiquette, how do you react?

This precisely. But for some two windows clearly showing their role still aren't enough, or the infuriating "i'm a dps but I queued tank cause it's faster and I want to be carried".

Perhaps the system should only allow you to select what role your current spec is capable of, rather than your AC.

I will admit, ignoring DPS for timing out isn't something I'd considered, but I suppose that's because I know some days a DPS will be in queue for several hours, and decide to take a bathroom break right when queue decides to pop.

It's strange how since making this thread I've had groups where we end up with two tanks or two healers, and they try to complain that they don't have the gear for DPS and expect to remain in group, even stranger is my pointing this out and vote kicking such players is often met with resistance, even in PuG groups where nobody knows anyone else.

Though only one other case of someone having a misqueue and kicking me who was queued as DPS due to a DPS who's class could tank forgetting to fix their role.

Yes. Role based on spec and need based on main stat, those are the two things grouping needs in this game.

My general strategy is to point out, at the start of the instance (generally within 1-2 trash pulls) that the person came in under the wrong role (as a tank, it's pretty easy to tell when the healer is actually a DPS when you didn't get any heals during the pulls). I then ask/tell them to respec and put on appropriate gear (both must be fulfilled; I'm not going to let a KC specced Shadow with DPS gear on remain as a DPS, and I'm not going to accept a tank that swaps to DPS that doesn't actually have a full or near full DPS set; I actually had this happen with a tank that misqueued once: when called out on it, he refused to respec and said that he had DPS gear, which ended up being an ear, a single implant, and a chest piece). If they can't or won't do so, I put them on ignore and initiate a vote kick (I'm not going to run without an effective healer or tank, nor am I willing to carry a tank or healer that thinks they can DPS with their current gear and spec). As a tank, the threat of the DPS having to go through the several hour requeue combined with a reticence to tolerate people unwilling to adapt to their given role properly, generally means that they vote to kick. If they *don't* vote to kick, I drop out myself. I'm a tank: if i don't like the group, I've still got an instant-queue and they're waiting for a tank for the next however long.

This for me as well.
Playing since early access, and only ever happened once. I was on my sin, and early on had both tank and dps selected as there is very little difference sub level 30 and had up to date generator and shield on me at all times, but later on, when you are actually more specialised, I forgot to uncheck the tank role. I apologise and left.

I never saw this problem as well, at least in HM FPs.

It's happened to me a number of times. Generally, the people get stuck on my ignore list so it never happens with the same person twice. Even so, it's not something that Pot5 is immune to. It does sound like, for some reason, it's less *common* here though.

I respec if I need to. It doesn't happen often but when it does I make sure that I can be flexible. I have field respec on all my Tank and healer Advanced Classes. Even on some of my DPS classes as well. Never know when I may be called upon to heal/dps or tank.

If you accidentally que as a role you are not filling it should be ON YOU to leave the FP. Sorry but you ****ed up the que therefore you should sit out for 15 minutes. Sucks yes I know because 9/10 times it was an accident but that doesn't mean the other 3 members of the group who DID que correctly should suffer, or have to carry you.
I don't care who you are. I don't care if you are male, or female, black, or white, gay, or straight, religious, or non-religious, old or young. I care about 3 things. Can you tank properly? Can you DPS properly? Can you heal properly?
