I have gear checked people in flashpoints and shook my head over what I saw, then I slapped the jerk out of me and got down to the task at hand and hoped the relevant peices dropped for them to gear up. Most often I am surprised by how they perform given the gear handicap.

That said why should I be surprised that people in "sub par" gear can play when theres plenty of people in the top gear who suck donkey ding dongs

I've been kicked once because one of their friends D/C and then returned and they told me about it and said they were sorry, yet i got punished by the stupid 15min Group Finder block for getting kicked. I understand leaving a group etc... but why should i get punished when they kick me out for that reason.

if true, you should report bug.you get 15 min lockout if you leave team, if getting kicked, you can join que straight away again.

Honestly at least your excuse makes sense I was healing Esseles SM and I won 3 roles which two other people needed. They then accused me of "hacking" to get the highest roles and they kicked me. I explained the ods of someone winning 3 roles is 1/9 (1/3)^2 but they just booted me

I only recently started doing dailies etc on my guardian... and was/am fairly under geared. I had about 13k health (lol I know) since I had no daily gear, no flashpoint gear etc. (didnt know about the free pvp gear at that point). I managed to tank a hardmode flashpoint with a group that had people better geared than I and we made it fine.

its possible it was a group of friends that just wanted to do it by them self's(since they kicked you before the first cut ) i mean i do know that most have accepted that you have to have 4 t start a GF but don't have to end with 4

Back when I first started playing people complained because I was under geared or needing on items with the wrong specs. And when I would ask them theyd get very rude and snobby saying something like "youre level 30 you should have figured it out by now" Yeah I know it was high level but give me a break it was really my first time playing and I didn't know how the game worked. But anyway when I was a high level 31 or 32 (this is on my agent by the way)I asked someone again in an FP and he was kind enough to tell me. But now i'm under speced in some areas because I have to slowly get the gear with cunning.

My favorite comparable experience was being kicked prior to the final boss of False Emperor not because of the stat distribution or quality of my gear, but because I had chosen shells that constituted an "ugly *** outfit".

Being grouped with guilds (Immortal Guard on Covenant, in this case) has an unfortunate tendency to promote such behavior, in my experience. Some people seem to make the leap from 'guildies first' to 'non-guildies aren't people, and it doesn't matter how you treat them'.

I would fully expect to be tossed out of my guild on my butt for exhibiting that kind of behavior. Were they planning to take a screenshot of themselves standing over Malgus' body?Yes, I know you toss him over the side

I have kicked exactly 1 person from an SM FP - which was a full DPS geared Jugg. It was either him or the healer who was leaving and to be fair, she was really trying to keep him up, as was I (DPS merc with support cylinder). Really only kicked him because he was nasty when we called him out on it and asked if he had any tank gear.

Lately it seems that he always dies during that final 'face your destiny' bit, so you can totally take a screenshot of his body.

Yes, yes, still a douche reason to kick somebody out of an FP.
