Not a bad weird but a good weird. Playing as a 75 slinger and got a pop on KDY with bunch of lowbies: 34 Sent, 23 Shadow, 47 Guardian. Thinking that this will going so slow and full of death, I hesitantly accept the q. But to my surprise, not only no one click the ship building area (except me), we also don't have death at any point and kill the Sith boss in one try lol.

That was something and made me change my mind about KDY.

Interesting run on MM hammer station recently with my jugg tank, with a sorc healer, mara and sniper.

As mentioned in my previous post, I am not too fond of the people who do unnecessary skips (where the skip takes longer than the pull) or unnecessary LOS.

As such, when we get to the large pull that everybody LOS's for no good reason, I just tank it like I used to in the good old days. After a few seconds the group who is stood around the corner seems to notice I am not brining the enemies to them.
healer: "move"
me: "no ty"

The group them comes out from around the corner and we finish the pull.

carry on through the mission, eventually getting to the other pull that is often LOS'ed, the group just before the lift that can be sliced. I pull, the sorc and sniper join in, the mara is still around the corner and doesn't join in, we kill the pull.
mara: "tank is new"
me: "nope"
sniper: "I think hes oldschool"
me: "yep"
mara: "no, he doesn't know how to do this mission"
me: "*sniper name* is correct, joined in 2.0"
mara: "I been playing since beta"
healer: "I prefer it this way, plus its nostalgic"
sniper: "plus its nice to have a decent tank in a PUG for once"
me: "ty"

we do second boss, get to the two turrets at the bridge. It is red by the time we get there, so I decide we will just kill them while we wait. I pull, sniper and sorc join in, mara does nothing. Bridge comes back, mara crosses it and starts fighting the elite at the other end.

in the time it takes us to kill both turrets and catch up to the mara he has the elite down to half health, so not much of a time save by skipping them. If he had joined in attacking the turrets it would have been even faster.

get to final boss, sniper gets knocked off by boss knock-back, so its just me, healer and mara. The mara completely ignores adds, leaving me and the healer to kill them. We kill and loot.
me: "dps, playing since beta, doesn't kill adds"
mara: "I prefer to just kill the boss"
healer: "I think the tank prefers to do it properly"
sniper: "lol"
Teach me not what to think, but how to think

Everybody is entitled to their opinion. People are also entitled to ridicule your opinion if it is BS.

Yes, many people seem to think there is only one 'proper' way to do a flashpoint.
I had a sort of the opposite affect a few days ago. In a VM HS group with a DPS who was really probably a tank. This guy wanted to LOS everything. But after standing around a corner a few times, by himself, while the rest of us killed things, he eventually gave up trying LOS.

Now you've got me wanting to do HS 'old school' next time. 😏

Weird, not sure, but some people's need to dictate and control the actions from the group gets ridiculous sometimes.

Vet FP with a stealther and some lowbies. I mark the first cc skip target and stealther says in chat "don't mark ****". I let him know I do it to help prevent some randos from leroying in there and he replies that was guilds are for.

Why would you rip someone for proactively communicating awareness to benefit new players or ones not familiar with the FP? Don't get why someone would discourage it when it should be a non-event for players who know the run...

It's a group activity and kills me how so many think they should boss around the other 75% of the group right from the start.

Yeah, I'm all for skipping unnecessary trash and bonus missions to save time, but some people get so obsessive about skipping, they make the FP harder. And of course, because these people want to move at mach speed, they have no interest in explaining these skips to people, they just assume everyone will follow and know to do things exactly as they do with no deviation.

One of the ones that is silly to me is that skip in assault on tython with the jump you have to get just right. It's such a terrible skip because if even one party member struggles with the jump, you can waste god knows how much time trying to deal with that.

I think in general, if the group has a tank or a healer and decent DPS, there's little reason to skip trash that's directly in the way; it should melt. Ironically, it's the groups that struggle in combat that usually also struggle with pulling off the harder trash skips, when they are the ones that more need it.
