We've all had a moment where we were playing in PvP and we saw something that just made us stop and tell ourselves "You've got to be kidding..."

Just today, I was on my vanguard tank in huttball. I scored two points for my team, and spent alot of time controlling their ball carriers... by pulling them into the fire. Don't judge me. It's fun.

Anyway, it comes down to 20 seconds 2-2 with them having the ball. I see my oppurtunity, and set up for it. The carrier steps out into the open, and I hit him with grapple. Drop him right into the fire trap with 4 seconds left. This is surely GG.

BUT WAIT!

What's this!?

A random sentinel appears! FORCE LEAP INTO THE FLAMES FOR A KILL!

He hits the carrier, and runs out of the flames.

Possession change!

To my horror, my 22k hp tank does not have the ball... the 300 hp sentinel does, with an enemy shadow right there. One smack in the face with a light saber later, and its good night for the sentinel. Literally robbing me of a victory that myself and another sage set up like the first reply set me up.

/facepalm

What about the rest of you? When have you had to just stare into the void wondering just HOW... or even better WHY

ACW, PuG, start of the battle, one guys runs to grass to cap whilst the remainder of the team head to mid (to cap) and snow (to slow them capping).
Grass is capped easily as they didn't send anyone that way.
We are fighting furiously to cap mid and I notice in the ops frame that the hp of the guy who went and capped grass was going down.
I glance again at the chat box but no cal of inc. but I leave the stand-off at mid to go help at grass.
By the time I get to grass our guy is nearly dead and the attacker is sitting on 50% (ish) hp, as I was on my tank by the time I killed the attacker our guys was dead, had re-spawned and flown back to grass.
As soon as it was all good at grass (bad guy dead and our guy back in place) I ran back towards mid to resume my healer guarding duties.
Just as I was getting to the buliding at mid I glanced back to grass to see our guy standing at the top of the steps in front of the turret as one of their guys was capping behind him.
Quick 180 degree turn, slam down on num lock and scream in ops chat....THEY ARE CAPPING GRASS.....not a flicker from our 'defender'! Obviously by the time I got back to the turret they had capped and we ended up losing the WZ.

tl;dr
One lazy numpty cost us the WZ from the off!
Simply the worst defending of a turret in ACW I have ever seen.

How about this... in Huttball, I see a teammate get the ball. He runs the wrong way and drops down into our pit. "Ok", I hear you thinking, "So what? That happens all the time". Well, as I'm trying to type "wrong way!" into chat, I see him run up the ramp to ground level. I think he's realized his mistake and is turning around, but no, he goes up to where the health spawns, and then just waits there. Enemy kills him soon after. Same guy gets the ball a few minutes later, and runs to the exact same spot, and again waits there until killed. I'm still trying to figure out what he thought he was doing.

'Course, that entire match I don't think anyone else from my team ever even got to their side of the map, so maybe he just though we weren't supposed to go to that side?

Sounds to me like he had mates on the other team or he just needed one more WZ for his daily and wanted to get it over ASAP.

Please tell me the [insert expletive of your choice here as I need to tone down the swearing] was AFK, on the phone, exhausted, intoxicated, seriously ill. Otherwise there he must have been giving a win to the other side - and I really don't like win trading.

I've seen that a few times. I can only think that they came from a game that doesn't require interaction with the node, you just need to sit at it and wait for it to turn over LOL

Not really a frustration story, but... Well... Just watch for yourself. The funniest warzone I've ever played.
