    Default Let us demote in WFs now

    I got my assist, would really like to just demote everyone else. Tired of teams focusing defilers and tanks.


    Also, first.

    Useless.

    A day or two ago, I was in Whitefall where the majority of DPS decided to spam their burst on a near 40k hp tank who wasn't going to die ever.

    "please stop attacking the 40k hp tank. he's getting spam healed."

    No reply. Just a bunch of graphics whirling around the tank whose HP bar just keeps jumping up & down like a hyperactive poodle on speed. Of course, he doesn't die still and yet they keep trying to kill him with no chance of success. It's like that Far Side cartoon where the Midvale Genius schoolkid keeps trying to Push on the door marked Pull.

    One by one our dps dies to the other teams' ranged and we all wipe. They we all res, come back to midfield, I mark the squishiest dps I can find as 1 and put a Do Not sign over their tank. No one but me is even bothering to mark.

    "please do NOT DPS the guy with the DO NOT sign over his head."

    Same result. Ranged graphics flying all over the not-killable tank.

    I sometimes wish there were an electric shock option where if people decide to attack the other teams' tank that they receive EST until they quit.

    Not in a pug usually. A squishy dps would be better.

    I wish people would not make dumb decisions when marking targets. I get where you're coming from. It can be frustrating.

    The raid marking was always pretty much overrated IMO. Only good thing about it is I can squirrel and smiley my friends and avoid symbol annoying people. Only good thing about demote option would be to demote the person I just avoid symboled so they can't remove it.

    Honestly, the contributing players are already attacking the mages and heals, putting a symbol on them isn't going to fix the pvp stupid. If people want to attack the tank, they will do so with or without a symbol. Yell at them and they will continue just to spite you. Always will be this way.

    I'm glad someone else is posting about this, if I see another tank marked with 1 or 2 I'm gonna nerd rage. I swear. Honestly people should be able to pick out healers and squishies without marks but that is another matter entirely. Maybe we should just try educating these people nicely in WF chat?

    ....lol who am I kidding

    You will always have the random derpomine addicts marking tanks. Its unavoidable. And when they aren't marking poorly. They target poorly. 50% of the raid doesn't acknowledge even the properly marked players.

    I thought it was if a Tank is marked DON'T hit him over and over.

    Maybe ive been doing it wrong..

    i never experienced too much derp marking while no marking was the standard before this patch . so far the change is great and i'm usually able to tag properly if someone doesn't do it before me, let's hoe it lasts.

    i agree with what has been said above though, the true issue is that most players don't actually follow the marking.......
