Other group member left the group. I said to this sniper "But you are the one who was flagged in the first place" and he left the group without saying a word.

Some people are just weird :P
I did the H4 yesterday with around lvl 45 teammates.
We were attacked by two 55 republicans.
My friend and me came with our 55s then (Mara & Sorc heal with pull PvP Gear).
Reps didn't come back after that

So I was on my tank a couple of weeks ago and I teamed up with a friend of mine who's a healer to get the weekly hammered out pretty quickly, sounds good right? Well.... ...... oh boy.....

So we queue up and get the instant pop for Mandalorian Raiders and we're grouped with a Mara and a Jugg (the Mara's gear wasn't very good but the Jugg had High HP and was from a good guild so I figured he was geared and left it without inspecting and didn't give it a second though....big mistake) and so we start along our way.

The first couple of pulls don't seem to have any issues, everything dies but us and it doesn't feel like it's taking too long, but all that changes at the first boss.

I tell them where I'm going to be tanking the boss and mark the first dog to be targeted, everybody says they're ready and we start. I'm off tanking the boss and the dogs are over in the rest of the group, and I happen to notice the Jugg just sitting there, at first I figure that he's DC'd but then he starts to move again so I keep going. He does it again, just stopping and standing there, then attacking and then standing and then attacking and I don't quite understand what's going on. However in my overconfidence, I only see that the first dog is dead and figure that the mara is doing a great job, and oh man was I wrong, and I didn't realize just how wrong I was until I killed the boss all by myself, and went over to find the enraged dog still at half health!!!

We kill it without a wipe, but people do die before it goes down; after which I take a long look at the Jugg's gear to find out that he's actually in full tank gear. When I ask him about it he responds by saying that he's switching from tank to dps and needs to regear, and that this (his current gear) is the best gear that he has.

We talk to him about his choice in queuing up like he did, but I want to help the guy out because we've all been there trying to gear a character before, so I tell him that he can stay so long as he actually participates and tries to actually DPS the targets. He agrees and we move on and clear through to the second boss, and since the trash mobs went off without much trouble I figure that everything's going to be ok, right? [i]WRONG!!!!!![i/] It ends up taking forever to kill the second boss(es) and the Jugg ends up dying because, for some crazy reason, he taunts the gunslinger off of me during his Last Man Standing AoE and gets wrecked. That irritated me and he doesn't really answer me when I ask why he taunted, he just respawns and keeps going.

My friend tells me to just push through since we're almost at the end but the Mara really really wants the Bonus boss so we agree to give it a shot, but once we go in the Jugg alternates between just standing there and running around the room like a chicken without a head until we have the boss down to about 50% when he finally attacks, and by attacking I mean he uses three random attacks and then backs out again and goes back to what he was doing. We end up hitting the enrage timer on the bonus boss and we all die, and when I ask the Jugg what happened, he replies by saying that he was "lagging bad that whole fight." I tell him we'll try it one more time and that he must be attacking or we'll hit the enrage, but when we go in and start the fight again the Jugg does the exact same thing and my friend realizes this too late and tries to dps but it's not enough and we hit the enrage again and wipe.

I'd had enough at this point, I think you can guess what happened next (might just be a vote followed by finishing without issue, lol).

I probably qualified as the weird one. I don't do flashpoints much, but my scoundrel got to lvl 55 and I've been having her do the HK quest. Which meant Maelstrom Prison, hard mode.

My first error was for some reason I kept treating the sentinel like the tank and healed him more. Of course, he took more damage while the shadow tank was doing rather well. The Shadow dps with us was also not getting hurt as much. Took awhile for me to notice that, I guess I need more sleep.

Then we got to Colonel Daksh. I tried to keep them alive, but his eyebeam of doom killed them all and I ended up doing what is known in Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer as "clutching" the battle. This is after I tried heartrigger patch (which I selected the wrong target, the sentinel) and healed but he died and the shadow tank apparently revived an ran all the way back from the start point to make some more hits only to die again before I could heal her fully.

Happily, I managed to use vital shot and quick shot to wear him down (in between frantic self-heals) and finally kill him, but it was close. I managed to keep them alive through the other battles, but still feel a little bad.

it was both annoying and funny at the same time seeing this guy go kamikaze and die over and over. We kept forgetting to put him on ignore, so that's why we ran into him so many times.

I just had a weird experience. I was queueing as a dps on a lowbie for athiss and when I got in first thing the jugg tank does is go to where the lifts are and jumps all the way to the bottom and dies. He then insults the other dps saying that "it looks like he has a (explicit) on his head," while he was dead. He continued to talk in all caps the entire fp . He was also spouting profanity the entire time. At one point he needed on a willpower earring that dropped and when I asked why he said "it was for his (explicit)." Then he posted "2CHAINZ LOLOLOL." I think the tank and the healer were friends because when I tried to initiate a vote kick he started yelling at me for starting one on him and when I whispered the other dps he said that he had voted to kick him too.

He also refused to pause between groups at all often pulling 3 groups at a time. Our dps were overgeared so it didn't matter too much as we only ended up dying once. That is until we hit the palace guardians where he would continually aggro 4 at a time. We wiped twice and at that point he started blaming the dps for not killing the guardians fast enough. By this point I made up my mind to leave the group and as I was leaving I vented at him a little bit and not so nicely asked why he was talking in caps the entire time. He responded it was because he didn't have a keyboard...

So, I had this Cademimu HM run today. Everything went well up to and including the wookiee boss. After that, we skipped the two pairs of turrets and associated mobs. As a gunslinger, I have a habit of hanging at the back of the group because my range means I can reach any mobs from there. When we arrived at the elevator, I get pulled to it by our dps sage. The elevator somehow bugged, I fell through it and into my death in the shaft below. I tried to run back through the mobs, but was forced to wait for the elevator and died a second time. Meanwhile our healer died downstairs. He got past the mobs, but apparently didn't notice me so I didn't get a revive.

This is where things got nasty. Our tank initiated a vote kick with reason "Doesn't understand how skipping works". In the chat she said "kick him, my comp is full 78 geared". Since the vote kick didn't have an immediate result, I revived and ran to the elevator again. The turrets were now devoid of all other mobs, so I made it and rejoined the others. The tank became very condescending about how we don't know how to follow a tank and started acting weird. He went past a group of mobs as if skipping them, but then turned back and attacked. This unexpected maneuver got everyone killed except me. By this time the vote kick had expired, and the verdict was that I could stay.

The healer also behaved a bit strangely at the last trash packs, not healing the tank very much. After killing the mobs at the missile console, the tank called out for heals and refused to move until she was healed. I'm not sure if the healer was upset at the tank's attitude towards me or what.

At the final boss, the tank told us to stand in line behind her so the knockback would break the chains. It didn't work like that, not even once. We beat the fight in one try though, and I was just happy that I got my GF reward without having to wait in queue again. That tank was the first person ever to make it to my ignore list due to obnoxious behavior. I can tolerate a lot of ninja looting and cluelessness, but insults go over the top. I figure he's probably used to running with her guild, using very specific tactics, and he expects everyone else to know those tactics as well without explaining.

I ran two SM HS last night with the same guardian tank with my DPS guardian. I don't know what he was doing, but clearly he had no clue. My DPS tanked the whole FP both runs, much to the tank's dismay. The first run, I did my best to let the other guardian keep aggro, and gave him advice all along the way, but he just couldn't manage to do it. I drew all the aggro, no matter how hard I tried not to. When I popped into him again the next time, I just whispered the healer that I would be tanking most of it. Which would have been easier if the level 15 Sentinel with cunning gear didn't start almost every single fight the whole way through.

I also met an extremely irritating player in the Rakghoul tunnels. Not GF, or even the OP, but still. I brought my 37 Sniper to the tunnels, and apparently forgot that I had my flag on. I was sure I checked before I went in, but whatever. A flagged 55 Sentinel found me, but instead of massacring me and being done with it, he just sicced C2 on me. It must have taken that stupid droid 20 minutes to kill me.

Yeah, wouldn't have been a forget issue with me, I would have put him on ignore and then initiated a group kick. Queueing for Heals and then not healing when you get assigned that role is something that I just flat out don't tolerate. Hell, when I am playing my healer or my tanks, I queue for that and that only, I don't even queue for DPS at all... because I don't want to respec and have to reconfigure all my skill bars with the special talent tree abilities.

I'm leveling a lowbie Mando - and I'm still low enough (<30) that I CAN queue for both dps and heals, as there is little functional difference, even though i'm specced DPS. Just pop combat support cylinder, and green-pee-beam to victory.

So i ran an athiss...I'm over level, 24, and the tank is 21 with level 16 gear...and is obviously new to the concept of tanking. The one dps is a sage who will not stop pulling and the other dps is doing mediocre damage.

We almost died several times because of too many mobs being pulled...from opposite sides of the rooms, literally NO excuse for it. I yelled about how easy the flashpoint would be if the dps would stop pulling, I even threw in a "Please".

We get to the big dog boss and the first thing I say is "Stay away from the edge, or he'll throw you off". So...the dps gets thrown off on the first knockback. We die...Next attempt I say "Everyone follow me to the corner, so he can't knock us back, and kill the little guys FIRST or they'll burn us down". So this time we manage to get through it alive. However...the tank proceeds to run immediately down to the next room and pulls a group of mobs before ANYONE got there. I had to heal him up fast and burn down the mobs, because his DPS was terribad.

Once we got to the guardians...it went to hell. Pulling too many, ignoring the patrols...not interrupting the 5 second channeled "kick your arse" abilities the sorc npc's have. After two wipes, I just left without saying anything. I didn't have time to teach the stubborn that day...they acted like the chat window wasn't open until it came time to complain about gear drops...so I knew they were receiving my directions - just ignoring them.

Afterwards I had a 55 guildy run me through a bunch of fp's so I could claim all the gear Now I don't care so much.
