We actually did that with a few sorcs.... with awesome results. Snipers was our next idea but we were waiting for the Cathar to be released so we could name them Garfield, Heathcliff, Nermal, Felix, Sylvester, etc.

Sorry, dude. You may not like Pick-up Groups, but I've found some good folks there I otherwise wouldn't have talked to. My Guild also doesn't have a lot of L50's, and most of the players are intimidated by PvP. Worse is that I play in the dead of night (1-5AM), so a pick-up is the only way I'll see any play at all.

After a while, though, you start noticing the regulars like you would at a real-world pub. The point is to use the time before the zone launches to form a basic attack plan ("3 on right, 3 on left, 2 hassle mid" or "Everyone charge left except the stealthers; they hide and wait on right until the signal") and cross your fingers as no battle plan survives contact with the enemy.

Funny how this topic turned into one about rerolling on another server... because that is what I might do myself. Im just frustrated with the way rateds are over here. Actually posted a thread on the Pot5 forum about this last night.

I hate the idea of not having my legacy unlocks or my credits or crew skills. Ive got a massive crafting operation that makes me tons of credits and i can make absolutely anything i need while levelling so i will miss that.

I really dont know what class I would do for that though. Im honestly sick of my Assassin having played him so much. My favorite class is Vanguard/Powertech but I recenly rerolled my Vanguard as a Powertech and Im not sure I want to level yet another PT having played it so much lately. Jugg maybe? Or Shadow on Pub side, havent done that story so at least thats enticing.

Anyway if any of you people do reroll on Pot5, do let me know.

People buy this game because it's an MMO... a massively multiplayer online game. Yet these PUGs are determined to ruin the design of the game by doing everything they can to avoid guilds, groups and basically everything that is the foundation of the MMO.

When they're on my team... winning is slightly more difficult. When they're on the other team... winning is too easy. There's no way around the PUG epidemic!! How does Bioware not recognize this problem? Remove PUGs immediately. They're ruining the game for all of us!

Not only to they ignore the fundamental design of the game but then they flood the chats and forums with non-stop complaining about how the game should be focused around them. Not only does this distract developers from finding what little useful information is on the forums but it also deters new players from taking this game seriously when the forums are flooded with posts about how this MMO should cater to a single player like game play.

Within a game based around community, guilds and groups alike... we have PUGs who are determined to ruin everything an MMO stands for. Please... remove the solo queue, and force these PUGs to play the game as intended. Within a community.

Thank you,

Actually the forum jockeys already ruined the game. Pugs have always been around. That's to be expected.

I LOL'd every time they would start to go up the ramp and immediately change their mind when they saw one of us.
Last night me and some other guys made a 4 dps commando team to troll imps in WZs. I think we did like 5 games and won them all LOLS.

We even used the military rank titles to troll harder. Of course I was Captain Caedence. Alliteration ftw.

The other pugs on our team were like "*** 4 commandos and none are healers. ****."
