  1. Split your DPS up
  2. Don't kill anything
  3. Group everyone together (to maximize Explosive Surge uptime)
  4. ...
  5. FORCE SWEEP!!!

We killed the Cartel Warlords in story mode without killing any one of them first. This was accomplished by bringing them all down to around 5k and then hitting them with a single instant AoE (Force Sweep, in our case). I was pretty hopeful that something catastrophic would happen to the fight's scripting, but it actually worked and didn't bug. The linked video shows the full fight, as well as a rather lengthy explanation before hand (this was an alts + random-people-online group, so we wanted to be super-clear).

So...world first? ;-)

That's pretty awesome! I wonder if that would work in TfB as well ...

Do you have some hand tremor that makes you constantly hit «spacebar» while all other mates are stand still?
Missandei Shadow ...yet shadows can kill. And oft-times a very small man can cast a very large shadow.

Lol. I didn't record the video. I do jump quite a bit, but not as much as A'jantis does. I'm also a compulsive keybinder, while she clicks.

Nice one... Only one thing... It'd have been better with the killing blow log active on the chat :P

Actually, something very strange happened: the game didn't record the killing blow on *any* of the bosses. A'jantis does have killing blow enabled in chat, it's just that the game didn't show anything. Here's the combat log: http://www.torparse.com/a/206339/21/0/Log

I the part at the end that went like:

PersonA: "So why did we do this?"
PersonB: "Because."
PersonC: "Because it was awesome."
The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins.
It always wins because it is everywhere.

Actually, it did register. There must have been some lag or it's just usual visual ability delay, but those 4 hits are registered in combat log, just after leaving combat(thus not diplayed as part of this fight). Look up full log view for that.

yup here it is... Well given the timing issues I've noticed in this game, I'm not that surprised. Tbh this kind of thing should never happen in a solid engine... Here it happens all the time... But that's something for another time and place.
