Didn't bother with asking for explanation, as we were near final boss, but it still was funny. Especially as he CCed droids before and didn't jump on them.

Also, I should mention some marauders dying at Cademinu, when merc or sorc pushes mobs out of the map, while marauder leaps at those mob. First you see disappearing mob, then marauder learns to fly. It's so common though nowadays
Marauders are always breaking CCs, its common among mara/sent players

SM Foundry

DPS: Sniper (me), Operative, Heal: Sorc, Tank: PT

The Operative was the worst I have ever seen spent most of the time throwing frag grenade and Flash bang (and then promptly attacking the flashed target). Would Sap the weakest enemy in the pack. Attacked HK even when invincible (apparently the huge IMMUNE letters mean nothing) and let us get overun by adds. Would only ever move into position for a Shiv and then immediately run away. When he died (and he died a lot) mobs weren't dying any slower. Good thing Revan's AoEs don't do much damage on Sm as he could not be bothered to move.

Obviously won all 5 Cunning drops.

Let them be, if they want to rock/paper/scissors the enemy then that is their story. We all play this game differently. It's not life or death situation, it' is after all just a game, I say.

If the player is clueless and wants to join your group who plays the game a certain way, that is different. If he does not abide by your rules then sure repremand him or cast him out. Otherwise, "Kay sera, sera"

not many people interrupt Revan,Lorric or That sith fella on Battle of Ilum either... maybe interrupt skills is payed extra for new comers. or binding + interrupting got old school....

2 nights ago on Directive 7, my coundrel healer had to destroy cores and small turrets as 2 dps and a tank constantly refused to aknowledge existance of such weak mobs during encounter. Even if they stand right next to it, probably been to busy fighting the claw... they clearly didn't try to avoid aoe I can say...

I won't even mention last night Lost Island HM when tank was constantly positioning Lorrik heading us on grenade phase and not move from grenades... and when fire crawling things came up, I typed 'keep away from fire guys' and tank with dps... walked straight to them.
I cleansed cc (not sure if cleasne worked or they used CC breaker) and what they did? They walked on them again...

I healed a group there once when, after wiping on that phase, the tank told the DPS to use the provided grenades to interupt unlimited power.

Also on the 55 HMs it quickly becomes evident that so many healers don't realise that clense exists. I'm not sure how many times I've had to shout "CLENSE!" in chat on the final boss in Athiss.

Wanting to take advanatage of the double exp weekends I did a regular 50 FP.

Our level 55 tank ended up being in Vigilance stance and refused to change to tank stance, lamenting that he's done it before. I as the 52 healer grumble (cause now it's all on me), but move on. Not surprisingly we wipe a few times, to which the "tank" blames the level 50 11k hp sniper for being too new...

Seeing as we're wiping more than enough times, I figure the only way to get my money back is by needing on everything.

We finally get through to the very end when suddenly our new dps realises that I've needed everything, which they've actually needed, but have only been greeding so idk why they were crying. Needless to say I got kicked out of the group, but still made a nice 50k profit to my probably 50k repair bill cost.

Of course this tells me to leave any FP from now on wherein the tank is not tanking or the healer is not healing...

Tanking the Hammer Station HM.

Healer hadn't done that before, so after one wipe I had to explain the stack cleansing during the mining droid fight to him. Okay. He looked pretty new at only just slightly over 20k HPs, so I probably should have asked if he knew the HM fights before.

Then the Assassin DPS chimes in, telling me I should have been taunting the little suicide droids.

I proceed to go o.O and tell him to just stay out of the damn red circles. He keeps insisting, I go **** it and engage and with the healer knowing to cleanse we manage it just fine. There's a whole annoyance when we wipe on the bonus and decide to move on because the healer isn't quite keeping up and the rest of the group is ************, but I spot something about the SIN ... he's running Surging Charge. And using Death Field. And wearing a mess of gear that's mostly PVP but has bits and bobs with alacrity and absorption on it.

When I ask him about it all I get is 'It does damage'. *facepalm*

  • The "I'm at work, so I will have to put your lives on hold for 10 minutes while I make this call"- type of guy.
  • The "My client crashed, so now I'm going to spend 15 minutes relaunching the game"- type of guy.
  • The "Oh, the tank and healer is going that way, so now I'm going in this opposite direction to pull mobs on my own"- type of guy.
  • The "Oh my God, I need this bonus quest, so that your Flashpoint run will be 30 minutes longer than it has to be"- type of guy.
  • The "I'm a Marauder, so I can charge in first and pretend that I'm tanking, which results in my healer dying because their heals generate more hate than my damage" type of guy.
  • The "Uuh, I will attack the champion mob first, then the elite mob, then the strong mob, and lastly, the normal mobs" type of guy.
  • The "I'm a Sniper, so I can't assist, thus will do massive damage on a mob that the tank hasn't got proper hate on which will result in me pulling aggro repeatedly" type of guy.
  • The "Oh, look, that mob is CC'd, let's attack it" type of guy.
  • The "When you say 'go' I will respond five seconds late resulting in your plan to fail" type of guy.

I meet these people frequently.
