    Episode 27
     - Imp v Pub

    “Back in my day” you played Pub side or Imp side and there was no co-mingling at all. They didn’t even share GTN via fleet, the GTNs all had factions!!!! You couldn’t even send mail to yourself on another side, we used to have to go to a “neutral” GTN on Nar Shadda and then list an item for a ridiculously high price and then swap characters and buy it on the opposite faction. Hilarious! No legacy bay either, no sharing of gear etc. You really did pick a side and that is where you played because the game made it so hard to do otherwise.

    This week in You Can’t Make This Sith Up: saying you are ready when you’re not. In a recent trip to Rishi a healer, who was content to remain nameless and hoover up tech fragments in a quick story mode Ravagers, found herself with an angry pug. The op was going by lightning fast, the group was in a jet engine being powered by a 2 big dps, 1 amazing tank, 1 power-lifting healer, 1 nameless lazy healer, and 3 pugs.. When it came time for Master and Blaster someone threw out a ready check and 2 of the pugs said they were not ready. “Ready” one of them typed into chat. Another ready check was thrown. This time just 1 said not ready, which was quickly followed up with a “sorry ready” in the chat. One more check was thrown JUST to be sure. “The Group is Ready!” announced the game –3-2-1 go! As soon as the pull began, one pug died immediately. The slacking healer sighed, clicked their name and looked for the body. Not in the corners. Not in the middle of the map. Not by the fence. Oh well, she thought, it is just story mode. After another death she realized she was going to have to stop being lazy and actually help, but this body was located quickly and returned to life once again, nothing to see here. When the fight was over, the first dps who died began typing in chat “Can someone PLEASE rez me, I’m outside the door”. Why would they be outside the door? The now tired healer wondered. She gave them a rez and instead of ‘thank you’ they said “I died because you pulled without me”. Perhaps this dps did not understand the function of a ready check and were confused by the pop-up question. Perhaps this was their first time doing this fight and they thought it would start 200 meters away from the boss. One can only wonder at this phenomenon and offer the following advice: when presented with a ready check and you are not, in fact, ready don’t f*****g click yes.

    You Can't Make This Sith Up

    This week in You Can’t Make This Sith Up: the pug raid leader. In a recent trip to the Eternity Vault a very good but very sick dps (who shall remain nameless lest she spread her disease to the rest of the galaxy) pulled up to the first boss with a group of 16 people– one of whom was a pug. It started on the 1st boss, a heal marker placed under the feet of the annihilation droid. Okay, sure, the dps thought. A good place to gather for AOE heals. While waiting for a speeder to the 2nd boss another marker appeared by the speeder. Yes, obviously, thats the speeder to ride. On the way to the 3rd boss more markers appeared. One at the foot of a cliff used to bypass trash. Another farther down the road to lead the way. Uh huh. Then more markers appeared on the terminals for the pylon boss and at this point people were annoyed. “Who is putting down all these markers?” someone asked. “Oh…it’s the pug!” someone else answered.  On the way to the last boss someone wondered if the pug would again place markers on the ground to lead the way and, sure enough, they did! THANK YOU SO MUCH the coughing dps typed into Ops chat. She then proceeded to place upwards of 20 markers on the platform in various and sundry spots. At this point everyone else in the group joined in and soon there were markers everywhere, much to everyones delight. On the last floor the tired, sniffling dps made one last ditch effort– she placed markers around the entire lower ring and told the group “These are where the mind traps might spawn so please be aware”. After Soa was defeated, the sick dps pulled up the parser to find she was doing overall 2 times the damage of the pug. Perhaps this pug thought that this was our first time in Eternity Vault. It is, after all, only 10 years old. Perhaps they thought the group needed guidance and direction for this extremely challenging operation. This reporter can offer only the following advice for pugs doing bad dps in a very large group: shut the f**k up and get carried.

Tylerloliver ,

This is the way. Don’t change a thing.

Except maybe more frequent uploads. 😁

What a fun show

If you are into SWTOR, give it a listen. And if you don’t know what SWTOR is, give it a listen anyway. Life is short so enjoy the show.
