YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS SITH UP
This week in You Can't Make This Sith Up -- flashpoint fighting. Is it healthy and does it add anything to gameplay? In a recent trip to Rakata Prime a dps, who will remain nameless to protect the tattered remains of her sanity, encountered a bit of pvp in her flashpoint. It began as a standard flashpoint, trash was skipped when it could be, bosses were dying. However, by the last boss things took a turn. The tank decided which boss should be focused first and marked it with a gun. Sure, the dps said, no problem. Two minutes into the fight the tank then types “focusing the wrong one, switch. Swap pls”. Here we go, the dps said to herself – (sound of bag opening) she was playing the part of the quiet reliable in this episode and therefore had packed snacks. The other dps then responds “it literally does not matter stop typing. Stop typing and tank”. (crunch crunch) The tank responds “you cant dipshit”,(crunch) cut to the other dps “you need to”,(crunch) back to the tank “you can’t dipshit its un-tauntable” (Sounds of snacking) “WOW these season-opener episodes of Master Mode Flashpoint Queue have gotten SPICY!” What did these two hope to gain by arguing during this flashpoint? Did they hope to somehow outdo each other in a race of stupidity? Perhaps they thought their banter would be welcomed, it was, after all, very snack worthy. All this dps knows is that a quick parse check revealed she had done 4k more dps than the belligerent tank and loud dps had done put together. You’re welcome for the carry you fucking assholes.
