Cademimu veteran or how to add five minutes by not waiting 30 seconds longer.
All dps, commando (me), sage and guardian in their 70s and a tiny shadow. First group the guardian dies while the sage is the only one trying LOS and needing their sweet time to get back into the party. The guardian informs us that we absolutely always need to focus the champion droid first, which is a really bad idea.
Anyway, we go on, first boss goes fine and then the guardian, after some pull shenanigans which were partly my fault (I pulled the goldie, he pulled the rest when trying to help me), dies on the jump down the short elevator before the wookie. Instead of accepting my revive he goes med center. We wait. He's making his way back, but before he can reach us the sage pulls. Boss dies before the guardian catches up.
The shadow asks if we want to do the 'yolo run' till adds reset. I type yeah, because I don't care either way, but let's wait for the guardian.
The sage starts running.
We follow, go down the final elevator, activate the button and clear the trash next to it. The guardian is still catching up and at 21% hp.
But now let's wait for him!
Nope, the sage starts running.
We make it to the final room, the adds reset for us, the sage pulls the trash in front of the console so the guardian is still low on hp. He dies, revives and types he's out. I encourage him to try again and make my way back so he doesn't get all the aggro while the other two stay back. I meet the guardian on the elevator. He dies. I pick him up, we go up, we go down, run through until adds reset and we finally get to do the last boss.
Now I realize I should have checked where the guardian is at and just should've let the sage run alone and most likely die. My bad. Still wanted to put some lego in the sage's shoes.
What do we do, panic, freak? I usually panic but I'm happy to freak.

Just had an incredibly wholesome MM KI run on pub side as dps. The healer in particular was fun and used a lot of emotes. They even capitalized and punctuated cheerful comments in chat. Everything was extremely smooth and I enjoyed myself immensely.

The people that roll need on everything even if they clearly don't need it or can use it.
I haven't done group finder in several years and did one yesterday. I remember why I quit now.
Hopefully they will revamp the loot system like WOW did and do away with Need/Greed all together.

Queued into a Hammer Station the other day. Veteran mode. Arguably the easiest flashpoint in the game. Except for maybe that big pull near the beginning with the two missile-slamming droids who can catch people off-guard. Other than that, it's mostly just coasting, right? Even with a couple of lowbies, you can carry them through pretty easy. Well I'm a level 70 DPS, been doing vet mode flashpoints a lot lately, so I guess statistically, the odds were I was going to run into something weird sooner or later. I port in fast and am ready to go fast, usually ahead of most everybody cause I have a fast connection and am with it on being ready.

There's a tank and two DPS other than me. No healer. Tank makes me look like a snail. They start moving and go straight into the first pull. I'm thinking, sure, going for the first pull without waiting for everybody, that's not all that weird. They're a tank, it's veteran mode and I'm running up already, so it's not an insane thing to do.

Then they dash off and go pull the next group, bring it back to where the first one is. We AoE that shiz down and I'm like, wow, never seen this flashpoint pulled that way. Even said it in chat, which got silence from the tank. One of the DPS was like "what happened?" cause keep in mind this had all happened fast and one of the DPS was just now pulling up to the first pull from loading in and getting moving.

What happened, indeed. Well I didn't have time to really talk or think about what happened because the tank kept moving. They pulled the next pull, that big one that hits so hard, we got it down, though the tank was down to like 10% of their HP. They proceed to ignore that 10% and go right into the next pull. This continues for quite a while. Tank pulls, doesn't heal up, is sitting at like 10% HP. I can tell they know how to use DCDs and aren't entirely crazy, cause I saw their health jump once like they were using Shadow's bit of health regain cooldown thing. And they aren't dying fast or anything, they're level 70, just aren't waiting to heal up.

First boss, they teleport into him at 10% health, one of the DPS has to go for a kolto to make sure they don't die to that laser move the boss does that hits like a truck. Somehow we manage to get through the boss with kolto and such. Move on, into the next room where normally groups just sneak past the trash. This tank pulls all of it at the same time. Somehow manages to survive again.

I start to get an inkling that something is off here. At first I was thinking this tank was some mad genius of a player who knows their class and limits so well they can go from fight to fight like it's nothing at low HP. In the back of my head, I get that inkling of a player who is in a rush, who is impatient, who can't be hassled with spending a few seconds to use an out-of-combat heal.

The doubt builds and we come to the pull with the two turrets before the light bridge. Tank still working with low HP, probably low on cooldowns too at this point. Unsurprisingly, dies. Surprisingly, one of the other DPS dies, but the other two of us, despite one of us being relatively low level, manage to survive and kill the turrets. During that time, tank leaves. No commentary, no fanfare, just gone. Best guess is they had some other queue or guild port waiting or something. I didn't even see the countdown from quitting early or anything, just they were in the group one moment and then gone the next. Not a DC or anything, just gone.

One of the DPS comments, "Finally."

Guess their interpretation of events was less generous than mine. I'm just like, "I saw that one coming."

Well, we were almost done, so we pull out a heal companion and finish up right quick. And what a strange run that was. Probably the fastest I've ever done Hammer Station and one I'm not going to forget for a long time.

CCM MM as healer. On Enhanced Vrblther. Don't need many words for this, didn't record the exact messages though.

Me and DPS: Bring boss to spore
I pull tank. Tank runs back in.
Tank moves near spore. DPS clicks and it misses.
Tank: Good job idiot
DPS: If you did your job it would have worked
Tank: f o
Tank quits during fight and is kicked after the 30 sec window.

We finished that and the last boss with a companion.

Groups that disband for no reason other than no stealther is available for EV (between first and second boss), EC (up to first boss), Ravagers (before last boss) or TOS (same as Ravagers). Everyone screaming at everyone else to level a stealther.

I pray for the day that Bioware gives all those key mobs in those key areas, "Super Stealth Detection."

Then I'll be posting about, "All the people that refuse to do EV, EC, Ravagers or TOS because they can't be stealthed anymore.

So i get this mm hammer station pop on my tank. Everything goes fine until i start scavenging all the dead droids.

This dps commando seems to have the worst luck trying to scavenge exactly the droid im scavenging, so i always get all the mats.

At some point they r outright triggered stating that "dude! u r not the only scavenger here, share pls."

Once this goes on even after their humble request, the dps mando just straight up rage quit and sent me a very kind whisper saying that i am selfish and anti-social and that they pity me in real life. They promptly put me on ignore right after for good measure.

This cracked me up pretty good, getting upset about scavenging is a new one to me.

Another story, while not related to GF, took place during a WB group on ossus. So im on my big bt4 type male toon, and i make sure to stand right in the character model of this tiny bt1 healer. They would move a few steps, then i get right back on top of them. We keep doing that a few more times, at which point they out of the blue leave the group, QT away, and put me on ignore.

I apologise for being inside ur personal space, can we be friends now?

Most people use this thread for outing other players as weird or annoying or obnoxious, not to out themselves as a 'player I do not want to ever pug with'.
Stealthy heals, stealthy dps, stealthy tank.

Ikr? I feel like the 4th wall has broken or something, like the character of a book has suddenly come to life and is complaining to its writer xD
