Disappointing Other People

Group Content - Playing what you like vs Playing Effectively - Mal and Scya, when you run flashpoints and operations, do you play your most effective class or whatever you want?

Should you have to play effectively in group content? 

Should you always be striving to be playing at your very best in every type of content or is it ok to coast?


This week in You Can't Make This Sith Up - world boss groups. In a recent trip to Nar Shadda, for some ungodly reason, a dps whose name has been withheld for another ungodly reason, joined a world boss group at 1:25 in the morning. The target world boss was Battledroid R4-GL found on Nar Shadda. Upon joining, the leader announced that they had no ability to summon to the boss nor did they know the way to the World Boss’s location. The time was now 1:35 AM and the tired dps began making her way to the world boss location. Upon arrival around 1:40 AM there were 18 people in the group. Hooray, summons incoming. “No no” she was told. “The group is not full yet”. What? How full did this group need to be for this boss that could be demolished in under 2 minutes. Finally at 1:45AM the leader announced “Everyone gather in the same instance or you will not get the summons”. What? After ready checking and waiting for 24 people to indicate that they were, in fact, ready the boss finally died at 1:55 AM. Perhaps this tired dps just needed to have some patience with people. Perhaps she should learn to be less cranky, after all, the boss did die. Or, in this reporters opinion, she should have Alt F4’d and gone the fuck to bed.  


Creating  Characters

  • When do you create new characters mal, scya?
  • Do you go heavy on how they look and their name? 
  • Do you create a story or imagine what they are like beforehand? 
  • Do you like the species / colors / options available?
