Yeah.. there is absolutely zero proof that the root cause here is double xp. OP is just being provocative, and is going to get served by the forum membership on the topic of double xp.... because it is very popular with the players.

as much as I hate double xp, I don't think the issue is it this time. the issue is people leveling up without playing any fps and then start playing fps directly with hard modes.

also, the fastest way of leveling up is playing fps. you don't need to do anything else other than class missions and certainly you don't need double xps but few people do that.

Nonsense. Bad players will be bad regardless. Double xp does not make players bad, bad playing makes players bad.

1. Correlation is not causation. Double Bonus XP weekends have about nothing to do with the quality of a player. If anything, a healer will be made worse by solo content, not soloing faster.

2. How many maxed out alts did C2's owner have, because tons of presence in a leveling instance will make a companion fairly uber.

Was there a double XP event recently that I am unaware of? Otherwise Im not sure why you would be feeling the effects of a crap healer now.

And yes I agree with others, this was an issue of a crappy player doing crappy things. We see it all the time in PUG groups, which is all I do.

The awfuls are always there. But there's also direct correlation. Maybe it makes them come out of their holes.

Incorrect causation attributed to double XP.

I agree, we shouldn't do anymore double XP, instead we should have quadruple XP weekends.

No, there should be a 55 button.
