...On behalf of all those who end up getting locked in combat and unable to recuperate/reload/meditate/harvest/GO UP A SODDING LIFT because some tit (usually BB, usually drunk... bless his cottons), has jumped into the next mob on the map like some mental agro-machine.

It's really fuckin' frustrating!

*In his best Jack Sparrow accent* Clearly you've never been to Scotland :P We're all mental aggro machines up here.

If Star Wars Was Set In Glasgow
Chewbacca would look roughly the same except he'd only be about 5ft tall, from Blackhill and called Shug. He'd have the same amount of body hair but would also have tattoos, would permanently smell of drink and invariably sport a Rangers top.

Obi-Wan Kenobi would invariably be referred to as Chief or Big Yin by his cohorts. People trying to start a fight with him would addess him as Wanky-Nobby.

Darth Vader would referred to as 'Auld Helmet Heid' or in moments of stress 'That Dome-Heided Basturd'

R2D2 would refuse to go out on the streets after 10pm because of the number of drunks who would try to stuff chip papers in his head casing or piss on him. He would also refuse to go near groups of wee boys at any time because of the high risk of being spray painted/dumped in front of a speeding train/set on fire.

Although proficient in over 3 million languages C3P0 would still be unable to understand anything anyone from the East End of Glasgow said. He would regularly get beaten up for being a 'greetin-faced poof fae Milngavie'.

The Millenium Falcon would have static strips, tinted windscreens and extra-flared exhaust ports. It would have a Daily Record I Love Scotland sticker in the back window and a saltire bumper sticker.

Princess Leia would get captured by Darth Vader because it's hard to run very fast when you're wearing 5inch platform heels and a tiny silver mini-skirt which keeps hiking up over your arse every two steps. And you've been a heavy smoker since you were 6.

The best way to destroy the Death Star would not necessarily be a desperate all out attack. Two easy ways would be - alter its orbit so it passed through Bridgeton and tell the locals it was full of kafflicks, or - leave it unattended in Easterhouse.

Lines from the film as they would be uttered in the vernacular:-
Han Solo
"I've got a real bad feeling about this"
"Ah'm ****in' ma sel' here boy"

"Bring 'em on! I prefer a straight fight to all this sneaking around."
"Come right ahead then c**ts! Fight the f**ing lot o ye!"

"There's no mystical energy field controls my destiny."
"The Force?!! D'youse think ah came doon wi the rain?!"

"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid."
"Nae messin aboot wi the god squad and auld rubbish, wee man. Get yersel' a decent shooter"

Darth Vader trying to shoot down Luke Skywalker:
"The Force is strong in this one"
"Stop shooglin' ya wee b*stad!"

Princess Leia
"You're a little short for a Stormtrooper aren't you?"
"Ah didny think they took short-erses in the polis?"

"This bucket of bolts is never going to get us past that blockade."
"Wuv goat NAE chance in this pile o' sh*te"

Admiral Motti
Don't try to frighten us with your sorcerer's ways, Lord Vader."
"You think you're that hard, Vader so ye do. Well we're no feart ae you!"

Obi Wan
I felt a great disturbance in the Force."
"F*** me! whit wiz aw that?"

Luke to the Emperor
"Your overconfidence is your weakness."
"Oh ye bloody think so?, i'll make you feel the f***ing force pal!!"

Haha, it's just something you have to accept, he's a trooper after all :P

Sometimes I want to go all sneaky stealthed behind some mob to CC him while I see BB flying over me and stomping him in the face with the back of his rifle, that's just how he rolls. Keeps things exciting ;)

it doesn't help that once out of combat you can't see ppl's power/force reserves in the group window.

Troopers can regen quick and a good trooper rarely dips low in a fight anyway, so it's difficult to judge when folk are ready.

I usually just move towards the next mob a bit and wait for folk to follow. i normally assume that folk who come after me are ready and folk who hang back are still regen'ing. If everyone comes forward i use that as a signal to attack :)

It was funny. BB managed to get down the lift and into a fight before I got into the lift.
Which meant I had to wait until the combat was over before I could join them.

But I used to be the same when I played tank in WOW. I remember on a few occassions Kai giving me snide comments as I tried to chain together a long line of encounters.

Its something about being a tank that makes you go "YEAH ATTACK!". Followed by a healer saying "f***in mana or what?".

I must admit I do get frustrated that after a fight folks don;t just stop a sec to check everyone - let people scavange etc... it's all rush rush ruish... thats PUG's, btw... hate PUGS. I like to just gently meander my way, step by step....

oh, and Chris? You miseed one, highly important line - and I quote.....


'I love you'
See you? See you? Sit the fuck down! I'm doing impressing here, so I am...

I use the ops window for groups. The yellow bar is always visible on that. It's draggable, resizeable and everything. The only fucking thing in the UI that's any good.

Sorry Remi, I never understood the unbridled joy that is tank-full-rage-bar-itis at the time. I am now a carrier of the virus myself but am learning to control its effects with a carefully monitored intake of drugs.

Honestly, Grim was referring to the aggro management of this PuG were in. I have it in writing :)

(Sorry for the layout breaker :D)

I used to have my preferences set to target the next nearest enemy, so a few times, yeah, I've accidentally started shooting up the set of mobs in the corner of a room who were otherwise just minding their own business whilst we slaughtered their friends.

I've turned that off now because I didn't want to annoy the arses off of my fellow questers.

Equally, yes, it's very annoying not to be able to salvage a droid because the group has moved on.
