Dec 1st 2011 10:22PM If you were sitting out an entire night, I'd say they were doing it wrong, honestly. Maybe I'm just an idealist, though.
Not to say it wasn't a complete pain in the ass for me and the other officers, but we did everything we could to make sure that no individual sat out for more than one or two fights per night, and two or three fights per week.
This broke down a bit for progression fights (let's face it, some fights just end up easier with some compositions for the first kill, and every raider has his or her strengths and weaknesses with certain fight mechanics), but we always tried to let people know in advance if they weren't directly next in line if someone's internet died.

It's also a bit screwy that every tank that doesn't happen to be an officer or GM needs to also be a competent DPS or just sit out if they're not needed, no?
I certainly agree that a lot of "mechanics" to allow more tanks aren't very well thought out, but the solution is to improve encounter design, rather than assume (or force) every tank to be able to DPS.
