This doesn't seem to be addressed anywhere except in the PTS threads, but I was wondering if anyone could clarify how this title is awarded/distributed to the Operations group after defeating Colonel Vorgath? My guild killed him yesterday, and only one member received the title; the person who operated the tower didn't even receive it :/

In PTS threads, people have claimed that their entire Ops group received the Minesweeper title, whilst another group had only two players receive it.

Ran this last night. Seems only the people who get the tool-kit and diffuse the yellow mine are awarded the title.

We are not sure how it is determined who gets the tool-kit as our tank got 3 of them and a mdps got it once. Both were awarded the title. Is it proximity? Is it agro/threat?

It looks to be a random two people chosen from people who performed specific mine field solving related actions.

Think the Toolkit is determined by who gets the killing blow on the probe droid.

When we completed this event the two people that defused bombs as well as the tower person got the title.

Sigh. Here's another test for you, one to prove you're wrong...
Have everyone dps from max melee range, and the person you want to be the defuser stand underneath the boss. When it dies, the person underneath the boss will get it every single time.

Why do you think in Methodicals video, all 4 times in 16 man the sage healer got the defuse kit even though he never attacked the droids once?

How did I get it last night when I was popping assassin droids standing in the opposite corner away from the droid?

Dumb luck unless the game glitched.

We have people who don't have the minesweeper title takes turns standing underneath the boss. This way we know ahead of time who will defuse, and we can hope to spread out the titles. Never fails for us, the person underneath always gets it.

(If you watch methodicals 16 man HM video, they use the same tactic.)
