Got a chuckle out of this last night.

I'm a firefighter. I was WZing last night and, for the first time since the game went live, I quit a WZ...because my fire pager went off.

I got home a couple hours later, hopped on game to wind down some from the call before bed. I have 2 in game emails from some guy just completely flipping his lid at me for leaving that warzone. Then I get a /whisper from him.

I mean, seriously? Do some of you guys care so much about this issue that you are ragestorming every single person who leaves a WZ?

I am one of those who hates people leaving WZs. You are a bad... Actually, yours is one of the best reasons and I have to admit I can't argue with that excuse.

Also, I want to thank you and other firefighters for keep people like me safe. As someone who lives in NYC and worked 1 block away from WTC during 9/11, I have full appreciation of firefighters and a first hand knowledge of the sacrifices you make.

Eh, I appreciate that but can't really own up to it =) I've only personally been doing it for a couple of years, and never been really hard pressed in anything I've done to date. Put out some house fires, cleaned up some accidents, not yet had to deal with any kind of confirmed entrapment or that sort of thing *knock on wood*.

I'll accept the thanks on behalf of those of us out there, mostly the inner city guys, who see lots of fire and do "the job" 8 hours a day every day. Me, I sit around at home and play SWTOR til the pager goes off =)

I just laugh at these idiots they are missing out on tons of valor/xp/creds by leaving and usually we do better w/o them anyways. Example, today in voidstar we started out on defense, did fairly well held the first door for about 3 minutes and then the other team placed the bomb and instantly 3 people left. Kept on playing and held them back they maybe scored 4 points or so and then our team made it all the way to the datacore. Happens all the time, so I could usually care less when people leave. Also, you can't forget the client is highly unstable and half the time I'm sure people are crashing/dcing/bugged out so I don't hold it against anyone.

you have a good reason, a really good one. People are made when they rage quit when loosing. People sending emails out though is just plain retarded.

There are 2 types of Warzone leavers:

1: the one who leaves because they believe that they can better spend their time re-queing for another warzone for a win, and leaves to attempt to do so.

2: the one who leaves for a good reason: internet crashes, CTD, emergency, wife is scantily clad, etc.

However, unless person 2 is able to inform their group why they are leaving (which is really not typical), all members of the WZ will think that person 2 is actually person 1.

If they pester you, just inform them what happened. If they keep pestering, that is why we have a /ignore command in game. Sometimes i wish we had that in real life too.

However, i hope a deserter debuff makes its way into the game.

I have to agree here, there are 2 types of people. Those like Thuull who have a legitimate reason to leave and those who just leave because the second someone scores 1 point, the game is an auto lose in their mind. Oh well...also Thuull just send him a message back stating that if he can't play one person down, he needs to l2p...isn't that what everyone else does around here >_>

Most adults would never start an event while on call or knowing that they would not be able to complete an event, doing otherwise is just rude.

On an OPs run I could see this applying but for a warzone? Get over yourself.
