      The losing agro thing is just because you’re grouping with nubcakes who don’t have the first clue about what you need to do and how to watch their own threat levels. A classic sign is someone who opens up the instant the mob is pulled. Two kinds of people do this, clueless nubcakes who just have no concept of group dynamic and damage meter maniacs who don’t give a shit about group dynamic as long as there damage meter penis is longer, it’s hard to say which one is the worst to have in a party. They’re both intensely irritating and both often cause wipes.

      I don’t think it’d be too hard to enforce the rules either… you just have to idle when you have the ball and can’t ever do a full rotation until you get rid of the ‘ball’ and also to stop some nubcake (what? oh wait that was me) from trying to exploit that rule and ‘idle’ all over the court in a zig-zag you would just enforce a 3 second rule.

      The game is the glue that binds real people behind the toons, it was a fantastic game and in many ways it still is but in many other ways it just isn't any more – this is the point that's missed by the nubcake "12 million subscribers can't be wrong" crowd.
