You guess wrong.

It was to be his first run with us and we were going to get him some gear. So not much point in starting the ops without us, is there?

They can be tanked both, indeed, but considering the tank's prior performance I wasn't giving him the benefit of a doubt. With all the standing around, picking his nose and "LOS pull" cr*p I've had to endure up to that point.

Notice the difference between "we said" and "we asked". Besides, you only said you were doing bonus after I asked why did we pull the first group on the right and if we shall be killing everything along the way. I have no objections to doing bonus, I have objections to doing flashpoints at the speed of a snail. Tanking like that really makes me sad I haven't established a Tanking Academy on TRE and slow shadow tanks make me cry.

You must be the luckiest person alive. I play all my toons on JC and I have seen all these behaviors again and again. The other day I had a tank drop group on Mando Raiders because he didn't like the healer's name.

I think I am slowly starting to understand why tanking is not so popular. I just leave when I am not having fun. Explaining tactics for the umpteenth time is not fun. Wiping due to someone's lack of mechanics is not fun. I bet tanks too play this game for fun. So all the tanks who just disappear after seeing what I described here: You have my respect. Go have fun with elsewhere. That is what I do.
First time i was healing HM HS i didnt realize what they meant either. they said cleanse at 5-6 stacks, i was liek , because in SM you dont need to, so i didnt even realize what he was talking about

Huh seems hammer station story time and I got one!

Healer sorc, 2 Merc Dps, myself on Sin tank.
Droid boss, his adds pop up and healer does not cleanse me as I hit ten stacks and die. So I sit there on the ground as the boss turns to one Merc, eventually kills him, onto the next Merc, kills him and kills the healer. Now while he is fighting the first Merc I go "battle Rez?" kind of expecting it, I mean generally if the tank drops they get the Rez like instantly in a boss pull.

Yeah did not happen and the mercs were to busy trying to survive the boss to do it. So I vote kicked the healer, which never went through as he decided to leave area. As he was leaving I have him a bit of an education that a tank dying means a wipe if the boss is not near dead (droid had like 30% left when I dropped). Doubt he heard any of it, we reque'ed got an Op healer and one shot everything else.

It rather annoyed me, but one less healer I need to worry about.

Is he doing a really sad attempt to troll, or is this some kind of new-flavour build that I've never heard about?
I almost hope so, in a way.

Not because I'd want you to get trolled, but because the alternative means that there really are 'Slingers that stupid out there, and I just refuse to believe that my beloved AC has that kind of derp playing it.

Mind you, I've seen some drama-llama, 1337-kid derp-Slingers on occasion too --and it made me haz a sad-- but fortunately, these are rare.

I must say, the one class that I don't think I've ever seen too many real derps in is my other beloved AC:

Mercs, and damager-Commandos. Thank you fellow Mercs/Mandos, for making the effort to play you class and role correctly!

Two problems I have with this.

1. Not everyone is so nonchalant as you about it.

2. and this one is the biggest... many players, especially new ones... are still learning. If they see that this is how it's done, you will find them still doing it at 55 and they'll be like "What? NObody's ever had a problem with it before, what's your problem?" I seriously find this all the time at 50-55 (50 pre expansion).

3. Follow up to #2, this is also why I find even at 55 tanks in full dps gear thinking they can tank cause they did it before and nobody told them how to properly tank cause "oh it's leveling up it's easy mode"

So, I queued up on my operative healer and got HM czerka meltdown. Zone in and discover to my abject horror that *I* am the tank!

I doubled checked my queued roles and verified that it was set to healer (as I have to reason to ever change it, especially not to tank, lol). So I was at a loss, and quite embarrassed as everyone was rightfully pissed. I say my apologies and quit the group.

Still have no idea what happened. But I was the weird one for once.
