I was on my Sorc healer doing SM Czerka Core Meltdown. One of the other players kept trying to jump up on the ledge where the rest of the group was. I waited for a while but he kept missing so I thought I'd make things easy on him and use extricate to pull him up. He proceeded to start raging hardcore. He kept saying he knows how to play his class and it's rude to have your character moved without asking for it and I'm a stupid show off. It was just so bizarre.

I am a PVPer by nature but I've been idly trying to gear up for PVE lately, which means doing HM flashpoints. My healer is in fully min/maxed PVP gear with purple augs so she is geared good enough for HM flashpoints. Her gear is worse than basic but better than the stuff you get from Oricon. I was doing a Corporate Labs HM last night and keeping everyone up but all of a sudden the tank noticed I was in PVP gear and kept demanding to know why. The conversation went something like this.

Tank: um why are you in pvp gear???
Me: Because I have no PVE gear, which is why I'm doing this?
Tank: :/ u shouldn't que til u have gear
Me: How am I supposed to get gear if not from the source where it drops?
Tank: do dailies use comms to buy gear
Me: So you're telling me I need to avoid doing HMs til I have all the gear that drops during HMs.
Tank: yes
Me: Why do you think HM flashpoints drop basic gear if you aren't supposed to use them as a source to get it?
Tank: easy money, didn't u do oricon for free gear
Me: Yep, and it's worse than what I have now.
Tank: no pvp gear is always worse

Weirdest thing ever.

Back in the week of preaccess for 2.0 we did the hm fp's with 61/63 pve gear and you come along with fully min/maxed 65 or 67 gear, so you're not really undergeared

Magnus (the melee Sith/Jedi) has no aggro table, but he is tauntable.
So even if he didn't know that the other 3 schould still have been on him, not the opposite way.

Just had someone in the new FP who wouldn't DPS (as a DPS) adds because he "already did in the beginning" (so apparently it was everyone else's job while he ran around doing what he wanted).

  6. Repeat steps 2 through 5 as many times as needed until you have "quoted" all the posts you want.

Hope that helps.

I had quite interesting groups today in new FP. Most annoying was probably the one that had Guardian who had obsession with knockback. Please don't do that when there is a dps Shadow/Scoundrel/Operative/Assassin in your group.

E: Or was it a Sage? Couldn't see because my screen was often filled with droid.

Had a healer get abusive after I refused to give him guard in Heroic Core Meltdown. Apparently he was sick of tanks and dps ignoring mobs attacking him.

I thought it was quite amusing and ironic considering one of the dps, who I had guard on was a member of my guild and is quite aware of the kill priority. Not to mention I always grab every mob in a pull to ensure the healer doesn't get attacked.

But he left the group, we ignored him and reported him for his vulgar comments, got a new healer and successfully cleared the flash point.

Less weird and more friggan retarded -

I finally found a group dumb enough to wipe on Kuat Drive Yards. Didn't think that would be possible.

Highlights: Two maraudurrs in full slave oranges, one of which had full willpower slotted and no strength, the other of which had gear from level 19 and the person was level 46.

A sniper who pulled a group of two strongs while we were fighting a champion.

Said sniper calling us all 'fukin n00bs' before quitting the group after we wiped from that.

The marauder in willpower gear saying NO WILLPOWER IS GOOD FOR FORCE POWER AND I AM A SITH SO I NEED THAT when I tried to explain strength, then calling me an idiot and put me on ignore so she'd never end up in a group with 'someone who doesn't understand how stats work'.



On Begeren colony, and if you're one of the people I just described i hope you feel as stupid as you are.

That's going to be the least of your worries, Begeren, since *cough* SOMEONE transferred there from Harbinger. If you're a harbinger player reading this... you know who I'm talking about.

Queued up for my first run of the new Flashpoint today, got in with some guy who wouldn't join the first conversation until all members promised to spacebar through everything. Suffice to say, the rest of us refused and he just sort of stood there. Eventually I just left and re-queued but it was kind of amusing for a few minutes to just sit there and think "dude, unless this is a realllllllllly long cutscene he wants us to space through, I think he's probably wasted more time trying to make everyone not watch it."

I guess he was a man of principles.
