Recent influx of WZ bads

I have noticed a balance shift too, especially huttball for some reason. Not just headless-chicken undergeared imps, but pubs who actually play decent huttball.

There are a lot of bad players on this server on both sides, anyway. For evidence, i cite my soaring win ratio whenever I group up with my rather mediocre guildmates.

Thankfully, it's been a handful of days since anyone pulled the "I capped grass but I'm too awesome to guard it, so someone else come guard it, kthxbai." :::seconds later grass is capped by imps:::
A classic sig that should not be lost:
Stunned , pew pew hack slash , stunned , running backward circles, stunned cannot move, pew pew, break stun, 30 second snare, wha?!?!!? stunned, knockdown, ...less stun more pew pew and hacknslash please.

I got called a bad player for not taking east at the start of a nc when they sent 4 players right off the bat. After I called 4 inc and stalled as long as possible it was team was not able to cap south 4v7 and it was all my fault.

If it matters, you are not a bad player to me.

Yesterday I gently suggested to some of my teammates (none of whom were able to break 100k dmg or healing in a CW) that they make a guild called "Pub Scrub Club" and all join it. It went over really well (I got a LOT of great constructive criticism), and I would recommend that imps try a similar approach. Maybe call it "Imp Gimp Wimps". Just a suggestion so that when you see anyone in that guild on your team, you have ample time to lube up.
My preferred method of cc is death

Pubs definitely have a focus fire problem. Not sure about Imps, but it is very noticeable on the Republic side of things.

I see this all the time in Novare, where I will always pick out one of the enemy healers in the first 15 seconds of the game, put an enormous crosshair over his head, and try and take him down. If I am lucky, I get one person helping me out. If am extra lucky, the healer is not part of a premade and I can drop him. But if not, I just turn on the Benny Hill theme and try to bury him before all the taunts and guards and bubbles and other healers outpace my damage.

It's like some Pubs are scared by those big symbols and decide to go nowhere near the marked targets.

I mean it's becoming a pandemic of bad players/pvpers getting into every wz I play. A typical WZ in the past might have had 1-2 bads on average, but lately its closer to 3-4 in each group that don't do dmg, dont do objective, dont do anything useful at all.

I know the bads dont frequent the forums..hell i dont frequent the forums often.. so I am not gonna bother calling out specifics or giving advice, just wanted to call attention to this outbreak of contagious badness that seems to be lingering around Prophecy of Five.

...Actually you are the one that's bad. You're just grouping with moar people on your skill level.

fights were unusually good and balanced last night. I think I only went 3 and 4 for the night, but every single warzone was closely contested win or loss. Had a Hypergates loss that was 890 to 860 I think, among others.
I kept waiting for those baddie Repubs to show up for a zone or two, but they never did. Just more Hostile Takeover and Hoth Ski Patrol goods.
