I've seem to keep getting people who try to kick me from FP's becasue I play my Op as Dps becasue, and I quote "Ops should ony be heals, you dont know how to play your class and will bring the group down" It's like the other two skill trees are there just to look pretty

The very last level pug flashpoint I have ever done was Lost Island (of course).

I ask "everyone done this before?" Don't care about response, just want to explain fights if needed. Everyone says yes. The healer and I are both level 55, I'm in about half underworld and half arkanian. Healer similarly geared. Two dps are level 50s, but whatever.

One dps, an assassin, dies of first lightning ball to droid. Rezzed. Dies again almost immediately to lightning ball. Never even attempts to move. We kill boss. I ask what he was doing. Says he died due to lag. A common excuse. Whatever.

Get to donkey kong boss. I call out buttons. People say yes. Assassin doesn't even attempt to stack under boss, dies. Of course, his button was the one that needed to be pressed, we die shortly thereafter. I ask again: what is going on, do you know this? No response. We spawn, go back. This time, I ain't doing anything till I get some clarification. "DO YOU KNOW THIS FIGHT?" No response. I literally have my character sit down. Finally he says: "no, never made it past first boss."

"Why didn't you say something?" No response. "Would you like me to explain things so that we can be on the same page?" Maybe thirty seconds goes by. My finger is hovering over vote to kick. I then get this response.

"Meh. Whatever."

Told him good luck finding another tank and left. It may be another year before I pug a flashpoint again.

Here's another gem of an imbecile.


Met idiot on Collicoid War Games, someone died while on turret portion. Didn't understand why, then realised the moron wasn't on a turret. Instead he was in the middle healing people. Told him to get on turret, told me to shut up and that we needed heals to pass the area. I said we got auto-heals. Told me that's 'cause he was healing. I left the FP, they stayed in Q for 2 hours because I ignored him and they couldn't find a tank, despite me initiating a vote kick earlier on the fool moments before leaving.

Best e-malice feeling ever.

Leaving as a tank is so satisfying. You know you are dooming them to queue-hell.

a couple of weeks ago: pugging cademimu HM.
i was tank and the healer had more life than me(i'm arkanian/black market fully augmented)..i do the first two three pulls without guard, since the dops were geared at the same level and one was vanguard and the other sentinel..so not the most immediate to figure out who guard..nobody was aggroing but me, not even the healer, when he suddenly starts asking for me to guard the highest dps (who????)..not him..and why? because too many heals to throw were disturbing his relax time! he voted to kick me and when i've been saved by the others he left.

Not surprisingly we wipe a few times, to which the "tank" blames the level 50 11k hp sniper for being too new...

Seeing as we're wiping more than enough times, I figure the only way to get my money back is by needing on everything.

We finally get through to the very end when suddenly our new dps realises that I've needed everything, which they've actually needed, but have only been greeding so idk why they were crying. Needless to say I got kicked out of the group, but still made a nice 50k profit to my probably 50k repair bill cost.

Of course this tells me to leave any FP from now on wherein the tank is not tanking or the healer is not healing...
You were the one being an ***.
Grats.


50 normal modes are easy as hell, you can do it with a vigilance stanced Guardian/Jugg if they're 55.
Proof of that is that you made it through and got a few pieces of gear.


Taking gear someone really needs however is a ******* move, you'd have made the money off the weekly anyway, or daily or w/e and would have gotten some comms too, as well as credits loot.
You were the one at fault.
The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away fromů save one.

Which just goes to show that there is more than one way to do things sometimes. Some groups I have run with always have a healer on the center box and the other three on turrets facing inward and covering the area behind their team mates. It works, if everyone is on the same page, as well as the traditional method.

Mal - This is the Captain. We have a little problem with our entry sequence. So we may experience some slight, turbulence...and then explode.

Sounds like most of your group was terrible. I've done that boss in 69 gear as a healer quite a few times, and losing a DPS or even the tank shouldn't cause a wipe. Just keep re-clicking the buttons, and the boss will eventually jump to one of the pipes to be burned. A healer should have no problem keeping the group up indefinitely on that boss. Hell, I've lost both a tank and DPS to knockoffs, so had to go click a button myself, and still kept the remaining DPS and myself alive until he enraged (at 5%...so close!).

Hilts/barrels add force or tech power, which is equivalent to power for tech and force attacks (I.e, anything that isn't a basic hit). That single 72 hilt adds over 1k force power on my sage.

And note that offhands are the same....upgrading the armoring/hilt/barrel in an offhand should be a very high priority for DPS or healers.

One way or not, telling me to shut up and then claiming that the auto-heals were his heals and that without him healing it would be IMPOSSIBLE to clear the turret portion?

That became a matter of principle. I do not tolerate fools, didn't want to doom the DPS, but not kicking the idiot. Well, too bad then.

Also, really? Really!? There are 4 turrets, it's obvious what you have to do. It's obvious it can be done. Out of 4 characters I've leveled on the Imperial side, this is the first time I've done CWG with this method. How he got the notion that it was impossible without healing from a player is beyond me. I shudder to think of the possibilities.
