Have to agree with DragonFireKai. Explain precisely the mistakes he's made, then bench him until he agrees to training with a guild group.THEN form a guild group with at least one player who can provide specific instruction in his class, and take the BadTank into 5-mans where you can practice particular tactics, situations, and responses. Doesn't even have to be heroics, if the boss has the mechanic in normal mode. Explain the specific mechanic you're wanting him to show.You (the raid leader, "class boss", officer) are proving that you (the raid) are committed to either letting the tank show that he can hack it, or to train him until he can. Who knows, he might be right.This is, of course, a high maintenance solution, but it might well prevent drama. And at the least, in a 5-man group, you're burning the time of only 4 guildies intstead of 9 or 24.If he won't take advice, and is not willing to prove that he is right in an environment where he's doing less collateral damage, it's time for "Punt, bounce, bounce".From my own tanking viewpoint, the important question is not "whose fault was that?" It is "what can I personally do to make this work?"
