In this case the tank did not have AoE taunt so he would naturally not be able to take so many guys away at once. He could have used an AoE attack but if he was a jugg it would be hard to hit them with smash since most of the enemies on hammer station are spread far apart.

100% tank fail. Inform your tank that he needs to attack before the cast is done next time.
Thank you for your advice, sithBracer. I do that when I play with another tank or tanking myself. But I was talking about the weird part about the boastful and taunting smuggler, but you have pointed out the error of most tanks I played with when doing HS has committed. I thank you sincerely.

Well, I've been using gf for months and never had a story worthy of this thread (just average stupidity), until tonight.

It's a short story, but was laughing pretty hard.

Queue up and draw mando raiders HM, (I'm the healer) we make it to the boss with the dogs, we beat him, and everything is fine.

Then one of the dps's says: "can you guys give me a minute?"

Tank says "sure"
DPs: "I gotta go get butter"
Tank: "what?"
Me: "seriously?"
The dps "it's right across the street"
Me: "dude can't the butter wait?"
Dps: "I'll be right back, I swear"

Then the other dps says "I'm not standing around while that guy goes to buy butter." And quits. (And can you really blame him?). So we queue for a replacement and in the meantime the tank and I are sitting there, staring at his unmoving toon, basically saying "why does he need butter so immediately?"

So we get a replacement, who catches up to where we are and says "alright let's go"

Tank: "we're waiting on this guy"
Me: "he went to get butter"
New Dps "butter!?"
Tank "he said he would brb"
New Dps "from getting BUTTER?"
Me and tank: "uhhh. Yeah"

So 10 mins go by…15, and were thinking "is something stuck or something?"
"Maybe he's cooking" and from there the theories as to what the butter is for just start to get more graphic.

and finally I say "seriously, how long does it take this moron to go by butter!?" And the tank initiates a vote kick saying "I think it's time we leave this dude to be alone with his butter"

Butter dude gets kicked. We get a new dps, who asks "what happened to the last guy?"
And we say "he went to get butter" new dude says "what? Butter?" And we're like "yeah nm lets just go. "

Anyway we run the rest of the fp. It was a good group actually. And the last conversation as we were leaving the area was
Me: "I wonder if he ever made it back home with his butter"
Tank: "we'll never know"

I was laughing pretty hard.

i feel like this should be a meme.

omg, i would have been stuck in a very awkward position myself, wanting to know so badly how the butter excursion all played out while simultaneously wanting to kick someone for going to get butter lol

And now all I can think of is that scene in Last Tango in Paris.

LOVE the butter story but you should put some sort of warning before it, just got a lot of strange looks while laughing to myself on public transport

Haha too bad you didn't get the name of the player who HAD to get some butter. Should have sent a follow-up mail asking if he completed his important quest.

Well I can't speak for the others, but a big reason I was willing to wait on him as long as we did was because I wanted to hear an explanation regarding the butter emergency he had going on.

I'm going to guess that his wife/mother forced him to go get butter. Nothing else really makes sense.

Still a funny story,

You want sense when you're talking about an MMO player? I'd venture that the likely story is one that makes NO sense
