He said "leave me alone, I just got this guy to 55 and I don't really know how to play it that well, I normally play Republic".
OK....but...how they heck do you get to 55 and not even notice something so simple, and then have the nerve to join a hard mode operation and act indignant when questioned about it? So next thing he did was pick the tank stance... /facepalm. We set him straight in the end, but, damn.
This game is fairly easy. You can get to 55 without chosing your Advanced Class. Not sure if I could solo kill imp makeb end story boss without AC tho, but the republic one is a wuss.

I once encountered in BT hm L52 PT dps + Jugg tank also 52, same guild, polish names (I'm a pole so it's easy to recognize), PT used:basic attack, flametower, an flame burst. nothing else. Jugg used basic attack, smash and I think sunder strike. I don't have to mention that my sniper was pulling aggro constantly from tank since he did no threat, or healer pulled aggro.
I asked them, how they got to 50+ with just 3 abilities (kindly and in english), they said they are playing together since level 10 and it was always enouth to burn thro story, so I should be quiet as they are profesional gamers.
ofc both died on last boss (what ever her name was) first pull, but I burnd her down like a charm.
during the flash point they were trash talking me in polish language thinkig I don't understand, but atleast they didn't swear much.
Normally I would talk back and leave, but on DPS after 50 minutes waiting for a pop, you kinda want to finish instance.

during last conversation, I thanked the healer in english, and riiiigt before jump, added in polish 'I hope I never see you two again' - pop loading screen and my reward waiting for me

I que'd for an operation. I can justly say no one in my group knew what they were doing on the first fight. They were running around yelling at each other, no taunts from tanks, adds destroying dps while healers just stood there stupidly healing full health no agro tanks while the dps were slaughtered. One of the tanks, also, was still geared in lvl 52-53 green and blue gear you find from trash mobs on Makeb. Needless to say, I left that group.

I mean I'd estimate at least 30-40% of the Marauders/Sentinels I see in Group Finder put up Transcendence every time they hit 30 Centering. I wonder if they just see a button light up and hit it, without understand why it's lighting up or what it's costing them in damage output.

Oh well. At least it's sort-of fun to have high uptime on running fast.

Raid wide buff that gives +10% defence. Maybe they usually run with insecure tanks

I have found that FP trash pulls are so fast that I hardly ever get any use out of Zen and end up with 3-4 stacks left, so I just hit Transcendance instead.

He had his AC. He just didn't use a charge.
It has nothing to do with how easy it is, I can see someone getting through the game using one button. It's a question of, how does a player not READ and know what their abilities do by the time they're trying to run a 55 op? Whenever I train a new ability, I read what it does. And this isn't just a cooldown, it's something you turn on and use the whole time from pretty early on.

I quite possibly had the worst healer in the galaxy today.

Hammer station story mode, I am tanking on my new juggernaut, and get into a group with a 19 sorc healer 19 merc dps and a 15 sniper. We greet each other and go on to the first pull, which the sorc pulls, not bothering to wait for me. We go through a few pulls and I have not received a single heal....and died 3x. I ask for heals and point out to the sorc (who was attacking a target with his saber) that he heals. He says he knows. We wipe on some more trash (sorc was overloading every.single.pull.) We get to first boss where the sorc types "WAIT FOR MY FORCE TO COME BACK" we wait while he sits there doing nothing. I tell him to seethe to regen force and he does and seems amazed. On boss he lets me pull, but then runs up, overloads and thrash spams until he is out of force, causing me to die to the laser. He then says "sorry was outta force" and the dps clean up the boss. We keep going with his overloading and meleeing and remarkably nobody dies. We then arrive at the second boss where he types again "WAIT FOR MY FORCE TO COME BACK" despite him being at full health and force. He stands there and then rapidly types "go" and pulls the boss, making my job even harder. He runs around with his rotation and magically we do not die.

The boss drops a cunning vibroknife meant for the sniper, but the sorc needs on it. We ask why. He says Khem needs it. ./facepalm. We tell him Khem does not use a knife. The sorc continually says he does. We just let it drop. Mostly the same stuff with trash until some before final boss, in which the sorc commands me to heal (during combat) because he is out of force. He has no idea that I already blew my stack of medpacks due to his lack of heals, and rages at me when I do not use my magic heal skill that all level 16 juggernauts posess. Rest of the run was uneventful, besides his standard "NO FORCE" cry before each battle. He still managed to keep up his massive dps "thrash/overload rotation, and even ran into the sweeping gunfire (I had boss turned around and was sidestepping it.) He was promptly added to ignore.
I think we need a sword in a box......

Honestly you shouldn't have let him get away with those kind of actions. If he doesn't learn that he has to fulfill his role in a group and can't need on items he has absolutely no use for he's just going to keep inflicting that kind of play on others.
It's a community game and the more the community allows such behavior the less justification we have to come in threads like this and complain about it.

Not meaning this as an attack on you amcdoog. I'm just seeing more and more posts where actions like this are talked about but still allowed to happen.

We told him to heal....numerous times, but he did not listen, we really did not want to wait for GF to pop another via kicking him. Not sure if the merc would have wanted to heal. All in all, yes, we probably should have booted him, but for the sake of time we did not. We attempted to enlighten him to game mechanics.....but he just didn't listen, we all just ignored him, the dps and I were on the same page.

Did a pug 16m group for xeno during the gree event. Noticed a fellow merc spamming power shots in between fusion missiles. I asked him why he wasnt tossing up his pyro dots and why was he using combat cylinder. He said he was arsenal spec. As an arsenal merc a little part of me died inside....
