it is?

huh..

I mean... I haven't pugged it yet, only soloed once on one of my 55ves (and I didn't wipe, just reset the boss once)
the only thing I can think of is people thinking oh its super easy and pulling multiple groups, that they cannot handle in the end.

Pugged a 16M SV as a DPS yesterday where we had 8 people, all in different guilds and unknown to one another, disconnect in a wave all at once. Was kind of weird, they all reconnected after a few minutes but I've never seen that happen. Bug of some sort, and also not really the point of this story.

There was an Assassin tank with 24% Defense Chance and 19% damage reduction who never used Dark Ward once. Stryak was basically tanked by my guildie's powertech DPS. Even in full DPS gear he was a lot more survivable. This Sin had close to full 72s (obviously tanking ones too since her defense chance was so high), I don't know how she managed to be tanking operations with the fortitude of a wet paper towel, nor why she apparently switched out from tank armoring to DPS ones to get that low of a damage reduction number.

Also did a DP yesterday with a jug tank with a 10% defense chance (with a stim). All his augments were +shield rating ones. That's a trend I've been seeing a lot recently, lots of tanks stacking shield rating augments for no apparent reason. Or maybe they have a reason, but it's apparently a terrible one if they are going into ops with roughly half the defense chance they should be at

It sucks, and people (including me) should probably say something before just dropping, but due to the bug, it's unfortunately going to be common behavior.
That explains it. I noticed I didn't get it either, but I figured I'd just go back and re-do it later. That explains why he left, I guess.

I was in this flashpoint with my Sorc heals. There's an assassin tank. I was over geared for the run but I was still having trouble keeping the tank's health up. I inspect his gear and find he's running with a focus in is offhand. I'm like "DUDE!!, you can't tank with no damn focus for your offhand. You need a shield generator, You'd be dead 10 time over If my gear wan't so pimp" He's like " Why? I do more damage this way." I had to scold him until he left and bought a generator.

I may be wrong, but the game does not give you that information, unless you ask the player. For me user character screen always shows my stats when I inspect other players. How did you get these numbers?

I just tested inspecting someone and it showed me his stats...granted it only showed me Health, Armor Rating, Dmg Reduction and Defense Chance (no Shield Chance and Shield Absorption), but those were clearly his stats and not mine. The rest of the character sheet was also clearly his.

Apparently now you get kicked if you roll Need for rep trophies in new FP. Is there unwritten rule for that already?

To inspect another character, target that character, right-click on the portrait, and you'll either have an Inspect option or can click on "additional commands" to get a submenu with an inspect option (not in game) -- just targeting them and pulling up the character sheet ('C') won't show you their stats.

Not that I'm aware of...I've only seen the issue "discussed" once, and it was somebody else in my party (way before we hit anything that dropped a trophy) saying for everybody to 'Need'. It's what I expect everybody to do (unless they actually are at Legend), but I remember being shocked that somebody would actually be sensible enough to discuss loot rules before looting in a PUG. Also on a positive note, nobody argued about it.

The armor rating of force wielder (tanking) and resolve (DPS) armorings is the same, only the endurance vs main stat changes. Most likely, they were in the wrong stance, since that is what boosts light-armor wearing sins to reasonable levels of damage reduction.
