So Im waiting on the loading screen and as soon as I get in, I see the Commando Healer ....no dps or tank with him, running to that hallway. Of course within 4 seconds he's down. He quits the FP right after he dies.. So now finally the tank and other DPS load in, to find those silvers barreling down at us. We promptly wipe. And after waiting 6 minute for a replacement ,we all leave.

I whispered him later asking him whats his deal was, he told me "I had to run so wanted to troll a bit".

What a frickin waste of an hour waiting in that awful GF for some Commando A-Hole to ruin it all.

Later i get matched with him again on Colicoid games but this time on my tank char, ( he's qued as dps this time)
I'm somewhat vindictive and ******es like these piss me off. So me not being a bigger person. Told the healer this story and asked him for his cooperation in messing with Commando A-Hole. So in collaboration
we let him die, Every. Chance. We. Got.

Commando A-Hole start's raging "why the hell aren't you healing/protecting me?"
I kindly reminded him of his previous actions in Red Reaper. "Screw You" he says and leaves.

petty yes but oh so satisfying. =)
i normally like the 'be the better man' approach, but this revenge was well-deserved.

You're more patient than me. I would have kicked immediately. I find it rude when people Q under-geared, and 21K is just absolutely ridiculous.

I had one about an hour ago. Not that special, but high-lighting two completely different kind of 'weird' people.

I was leveling on my lvl 20 Scoundrel healer when Athiss SM pops. After about a minute myself, the tank and one dps have confirmed to be ready and we were waiting for the second dps. At some point he refused the invitation and was replaced immediately by another dps.
Tank, dps from before and myself click ready again. New dps doesn't do anything at all until the 2 minutes are over and he gets replaced by the third candidate for the missing dps spot.
The group finally gets together. We are myself as a Scoundrel healer, a Vanguard tank, a Sentinel and a Scoundrel dps. Everybody says hi and the dps Scoundrel says that he has Archeology. Great, we go down and move up the stairs to the first mob. The tank doesn't want to step forward and pull. After a few seconds I decide to ask in chat, whether he would pull, simply expecting an unexperienced player (wouldn't have been a big deal to me, since I'm used to it).
Before I finish writing, one of the dps gets aggro for stepping ahead too far and off we go. The fight is no problem and we proceed to the second group. The tank just keeps standing where the last mob died. I wait back there and try to write something in chat again, when - again - one of the dps pulls aggro (by triggering the explosive fuel that is standing among the mobs). I go down and we clear it the tank still not moving at all. At this point I simply wanted to stop the dps, if only to give this tank a bit of exercise in tanking and wrote:
"Why isn't the tank pulling?"
One of the dps - probably the Scoundrel - answered:
"Because he's too far behind."
Before I could reply anything the tank and the Sentinel dps leave the group. (They weren't in the same guild or anything.)
The dps Scoundrel was about as surprised as myself. We listed ourself in the GF again, pulled out Corso resp. Bowdaar and carried on.
We cleared the Flashpoint without having any difficulties or replacement and had a good time, using 'follow' to move our companions and writing several funny remarks in chat. The scoundrel dps was pretty good, i.e. far better than the average GF group-member. Sadly there was only one cunning drop in the whole FP.

Had a fun Athiss hm run lately ... 1st time I pug'd on a dps(mando) toon.

The tank was just weird ... charging into new mobs, while we still had previous mobs up during the whole run.
And each boss fight was ... 'interesting'.

Professor Ley'arsha:
The AoE he placed always on boss, the melee dps or while running towards the healer ... and he preferred to tank the boss always facing towards the rest of group.

The Beast of Vodal Kressh:
1st time I have seen anyone try to tank the beast in open space, or while kiting it towards the healer/ranged dps ... and yes it was a fun fight.

Bonus boss:
Again, why should a tank have a wall in his back if the mob has a knockback or frontal/cone attack?
During this fight each group member ran back into the fight ... I think 2 times at least, beside the healer who was kiting the boss as last man standing around the pillar.

Prophet of Vodal:
Again, AoE got placed everywhere, boss got kited outside the room - reset, healer didn't know/try to cleanse the DoT(luckily a mando can get rid of it), healer died 3 times to flames, me 2 times while trying to rezz him, again 2 to 3 deaths for each group member.

And the funny part, each said that they knew what they should do as they did run it often enough and they don't need any advice about tactics.

And tonight I went back to one of my tanks and got Hammer station hm.
A polite hello from everyone and after asking if anyone wanted the bonus done we agreed on doing it (healer wanted/needed bonus boss).
2 members had a conversation in group chat in an unknown language (at least to me), apparently Czech as their guild indicated it, and I found myself alone with mobs as they 'used' the shortcut while I pulled mobs. It seems they informed me in chat that I shouldn't pull, but follow them ... not complaining about foreign languages, but in a group run I would prefer to use English, or at least a language everyone understands.

On the first boss I died for the first time (and second time too) since I tank 55hms ... and that was a sad feeling, considering I am in full 72 gear by now.
Once we got to the bonus boss area we were still 11 kills short, but the healer kept asking why we don't kill the boss now ... I explain that we need more kills and then we can go back.

We kill second boss (smooth this time) and the last 2 kills missing are the human mob and lil droid before you get to the 2 turrets just in front of the lightning bridge.

And now things started to get strange ...
As we got the kill count I suggest that we should go now for the bonus boss and ppl agree ... I pop my rocket boosts and off I am towards bonus ... next thing - I am in combat as the healer pulled the 2 turrets and rest stayed with him ... I run back in my slow guardian pace and we kill the turrets.
Now I reconfirm that we go for bonus and all agree and the 2 dps and myself head off towards bonus boss ... and just before we reach the skip'd single turret we're in combat again.
Feeling responsible for any aggro issues while tanking, I run back towards the healer and see him in combat on the other side of the bridge ... ... I suggest that he just goes into stealth (scoundrel healer), but no reaction, beside a dying healer.
In the meantime the 2 dps aggro'd the turret we skip'd before ... so I head back towards them (with the droid from healer on follow) and we get rid of the aggro'd mobs finally.
Now we wait at the bonus boss for the healer to rejoin us (as his guild mate indicated he would do) ... and wait and wait ... and wait. So we head towards his direction to help him find the way, but he just runs off. Now his guild mate follows him and I thought to myself that he might gonna show him how to come back ... but no, because the next thing we see on our screen is the pop-up that someone entered the last boss' area.
Now the remaining dps and myself are heading there ... just to see the 2nd dps idle in a corner.
We kill the last 2 groups of trash and the healer suggests that we could kill bonus once we killed the last boss.

Last boss is an easy kill too, and the 2 dps and myself head towards the bonus boss ... just to see the healer (the only person who wanted to kill the bonus boss in the first place) leave the instance ...

Tl;dr: Never run a hm FP if it takes you roughly 10 mins to find a group as tank ...

And how about the tanks who runs from a pack to another when you still have 85% of your Force to refill as the healer?

You must learn to heal your Force to full. And Make the Tank Pay for trying to kill you.

Or the tank that does the exact opposite for knights.

Waits for your focus bar to deplete to zero before pulling....

And the centering, can't go pulling while the sents still have some form of resource.

Don't forget waiting for the singularity stacks to expire (if I pull a trash mob as a dps, this is why).

Had a fairly funny one the other day.

Queued on my Assassin for 55 FP. We get Cademimu with me tanking. On first or second boss (don't remember what one) things go a little poorly and all but one DPS die. Me and the other DPS release and as we are running back the healer asks the survivor for a rez. His response? "I don't rez stupid".

I immediately hit Vote Kick and the healer seconded with "Thanks!". DPS lets out a ***? as he is booted and I tell him to read up on manners as he gets back in the queue as a DPS.
