This is why Jos/Valk and Project Sav-Rak are such pug killers: they are fights that require specific movements at specific times.
There's a large proportion of players in this game who seem to just get tunnel visioned into their rotation and holding the boss, killing the boss, or clickamajiging the group health bars. I blame some of that on the explosion of different abilities you should be including in your rotation every expansion and the resulting quickbar bloat, the rest I blame on the fact that most fights in this category of difficulty or lower do not place much emphasis on moving out of a dangerous spot; normally when they do, it feels more like a "recommendation" that you move because the penalty if you don't is so insignificant, but then you get gems like blood hunt and LI where it goes "stand at this EXACT little x or you will die" and people rarely do them so then so few players learn to appreciate staying out of stupid or other mechanics.
