Said I was going AFK the other night. No one heard me. came back and I was dead. No excuse for ready check not being implemented yet. Another failure by BW.

BW could be doing a million things right now. Sure I may not be a game developer and making the job sound easy..... but seriously Bioware, you have EA's resources. Do you even have resources anymore? I'm not even sure if it takes resources to implement mini-things, in-game hobbies, or complex incentives for world PvP into your MMO.

Just put some stuff for us to do! It doesnt have to be premium content! O_ o
Comming soon to a cash shop near you!
James Ohlen: " For 2012 we really want players to feel like they're getting their money's worth. You're going to see so many changes and additions to the Star Wars Universe. It's going to be impressive. We have our Update 1.2 coming in the next week and then after that it's going to continue to roll out month after month. It's exciting."

so true. but the eqs had a higher skill and maturation level for its player base. you lose all of that with the wow clones. this is why it is needed.

wanting to know if you are ready with asking in chat or in vent, and have all 8 people say yes over each other, or count all the yes/ no in chat is a pain....ready check could be faster for boss pulls,
(ready check) if all ready it should tell the leader all is ready, if someone clicks no it should tell the leaders all is ready but (NAME) . i do not see how it made you feel un needed...

Thanks for quoting the same post 3 different times trying to defend your argument against mine.

And by old school raider, i am use to people being ready 99% of the time, and if they are not... THEY STATE SO. I am use to raids where the leader doesnt ask if people are ready, but states the pull/start of the fight will happen in 5 seconds, after checking the chat to see if anyone said they had to AFK.

It is obvious that we are cut from two different pieces of cloth when it comes to raiding, and maybe my annoyance of ready check and the over use of it in pugs, is also stemmed from a general annoyance of playing with sub-par players.... who knows.

A simple... stand over by me when your ready... dont need a ready check if your in a raid have the decency to say when your going afk dont just say in teamspeak type it in chat. Its not hard, just means you cant just run away from your computer willy nilly

i will go with "yay that was fast.." the ghetto and stupidly method we use is..if you can mount, well mount up. jump around, and with that you have to see if all 8 are mounted ...

Ready check would be nice, especially now that we are encouraged to queue with PuGs for SM operations. Even for guild operations, I'd appreciate this.

I'm not sure I understand the pushback against readycheck. Seems like a pretty uncontroversial quality of life feature: the arguments against it seem to be "I like to just assume people are ready because we are pros." Which is fine. But as a mediocre player on an RP server, I've seen more than my share of pulls minus 1+ players. This would help to alleviate some of the communication problems that naturally crop up when taking people through operations for the first or second time.
Just some jerk who isn't good enough for rated.
