The party bomb ain't that bad tbh, the worse troll device I ever saw was back in the early days of Star Trek Online, you could get hit with a freeze granade and it would freeze you in a block of ice for a few seconds... but a huge problem until you had 5 peole hitting you one after another..... hame with the party popper things, those can still be a pain in the backside there.

Being annoyed by some ****** is never a good thing, but being forced to "dance" hardly seems something to bother about. It's not like you actually, physically get tired.

In SWG the Medics had an ability called 'Stasis', two of them actually, one for yourself and one for another group member. The ability if I remember correctly made the person it was used on immobile and immune to damage for a brief time. We always had one of the Medics in the group that would intentionally use it on a group member while cruising through their Heroics, similar to FP's here. I always thought it was funny. Someone busts out a dance emote here, I throw down the Clubdance emote.

Regarding the original post, have fun with it. If people know they're getting under your skin, they'll continue. And if they persist, file a ticket.

RPer here, this sort of trolling is extremely common. It's one of the most used tactics of those people with no lives who harass RPers interacting in public areas like the Fleet. Party bombs, /rally, sitting on top of groups with giant mounts, spammable AoE attacks with big animations like Force Storm, spamming built in emotes that get around /ignore so they can make the chat scroll too fast to read... like I said, these sad people have no lives, so they come up with all kinds of ways to bother others to get their jollies.

Best way to deal with stuff like Party Bomb trolling is to use certain emotes that fix you in a set pose or small animation loop. This prevents your toon from dancing. I'm fond of /map myself for this purpose.

This made me chuckle.

I always just get on a mount whenever someone pulls out the party bomb. You don't dance when mounted from what I've noticed.

And yes not everyone enjoys those stupid things.

It's probably a good argument for a recipient cooldown on those social abilities, ie, if you hit someone with a party bomb or force them to dance, they can't be hit with the same thing again for five minutes. Or let people buy a 'vaccine' like the rakghoul vaccine they can apply so they're immune to those effects.
