    My stance is, if the tank goes i will follow an let all the other dps’s pad their numbers an often times die.
    The best is when the healers dont heal them till the tank engages haha
    If the tank is fiddlin around then i have no issue engaging. I will quantum tank adds and bosses for a short while an soda/supply as needed. When the tank finally quits screwin around and engages, i just quantum tunnel to dump aggro an go about my business.

    1st option is always follow tank but if they aint gonna do it, then someone has to lol

    I know, it's not in mine. Appreciate it though.

    Same applies to dps for sure
    I was just in the alert w/another quantum dps.
    I smoked him/her 4x over. They even commented on how strong i was an wanted my loadout. I told them theres alot more to it that just my loadout. Its arts, augs, mods, how i rotate it etc
    I said PM me when we leave or when your free and we can group up and i will talk ya through it all and work with ya on the sparring targets an get ya goin.
    They called me an elitist ***** in group chat and left……….
    So to answer you, in most cases no, i think they wont even accept the help lol

    Talk about laying pearls before

    Lol i mean, what can ya do?
    You offer to help, you offer to put in the time for absolutely nothing in return.
    The player was obviously interested because they asked for the loadout lol.

    I think it speaks to the larger prob of lack of interest n actually getting better. Players now days really do think they can do what they want, they iust need a good loadout and theres so much more to it in most cases.
    Its sad really, that attitude especially when ne offers to help and i have seen it soooooo many times and its happened to me soooo many times (now i dont often get called an elitist ***** when i offer to help lol, thats a new one).
    It just seems like the majority wanna press a few random buttons an BE a bada**. They cant be botherd to actually learn anything.
    It even prompted me to go an watch some of the videos for various powers and heres what i see……
    Almost all the fo us is on loadout. Most of these guides show augs, artifacts, tac mods, etc but its all extreemly brief. Nothings explained, nothings even touched on.
    They will scroll through everything equipped and explain nothing in 20-40 senthen spend 30 min on a darn sparring target breaking down the loadout and how’s an why’s of it.
    Its no wonder ppl run around w/incorrect tac mods, rainbow augs, jacked up artifacts etc. i mean all these “guides” out there say nothing more than “these are my augs” or im using xyz artifacts”. Some randomly mention x art is really good Or something but largely the whole guide is focused solely on the loadout.
    I wish thes eguides explained rite off the bat if you dont do these arts an these augs etc etc etc, then no matter what your loadout, its not gonna work.
    The loadout is the end, everything else MUST be in order for it to work

    Yeah it's kinda asking your doctor for pills, instead of changing your lifestyle, to better your health. Wanting the maximum results with the least amount of effort.

    Tbh tank arts are boring. Dps have the most fun. When i went tank i dumped all my troll arts into tank & they’re just as boring.

    I wish i could go back hard light but even w the stat clamp trolls are useless
  11. Qwantum Abyss Dedicated Player

    Lord i hate people thinking this.
    Show me a player that thinks trolls are useless and i will show you a player that doesnt actually understand the game
    Trolls are bada**. They can do alot and as a dps (A pretty good one) they massively increase my damage helping us kill faster which speeds up the instance AND makes it go smoother in the process. Its crazy the difference having one vs not having one makes.
    The better the dps, the bigger the difference too.
    Trolls are awesome, dont let anyone tell ya otherwise.

    maybe because most people tend to stay out of instance chat,
    when If they were in chat and the tank had a mic and said 'block' and of course everyone blocked,
    but the game allows non-conforming and people will take that stance to the hilt - to the detriment of the group...

    I still say that the game should have a visible icon of some type - something along the lines of
    1st player, 10yr player etc....

    it gets bad to me when I get blamed and I know i've done what I need to do - and the person typing the fastest and most in the chat - can get you kicked out of the group - when they have no real appreciation of how to play the game

    mis-information is rampant - and just because you haven't seen xyz done doesn't mean it can't be done - it's just limited knowledge permeates DCUO and gets passed on and on.

    perhaps a solo simulation where you get to be the role at various levels should be introduced instead of just going on and on with other peoples opinion.
    Perhaps you would be allowed to create your own spec for the simulation - in order to see what works... and you could attach feats to things that are done - at one of the spectrum... not normal

    No but the troll I had last night was completely useless. No debuffs, no power heal, one-man shield, holographic decoy, the rest were iconic powers (frost breath, regular heat vision, batarangs). Would not respond to voice and chat requests to play his role or switch to DPS. Upon inspection Lasso artifact and DPS artifacts, his augments were Skittles. He was dressed up as Batman which should have been a red flag in and of itself. No one kicks trifling people anymore and that makes me sad.

    They all switched to the OP builds in this poorly poorly balanced game.
