First I want to apologize to the forum regulars who I have to say no to when they want to farm lowbie content.
It pains me enough to not have a sixth or more slot to team a noob caught wandering Westside when my team is full. To have someone with multiple level 40s, besides myself while 360,000 noobs have come and gone and not known about questionite, or zen or Kevin Poe, or alerts, or the Socrates button or anything, just feels wrong.
Having said that, I wish I thought differently sometimes, beause noobs drive me up a freakin wall. Not just noobs, my friends drive me over the other wall. People suck, replace them all with Socrates and the Ape. I am done teaming.
Everything is going right, then there's an opening in the team and we pick up a troll, or a lagger, or a disconnector, or a leech, or a yappy RP person, or someone whose adamant to do Demonflame but will disconnect two rooms in after getting a costume part likely and then switch to an alt account, or some theory-crafting anal retentive from City of Heroes who just wants to copy his CoX build that he's played for seven years, and whines at every possible event in the game, and really isn't 'all there' in the team at all.
And in every team there's someone who always triggers Kevin Poe's bomb after being told twice not to.
Can't I booby trap that damn thing? I figured my in game boobs would demand enough attention so that when
I say "dont touch the bomb!" people would listen. But nooo. I need a bigger slider I guess.

Also I'm going to mention here, because I keep forgetting to post a bug report.
The team leader team UI for who has what mission priority after setting it has gone to The Secret World. I have no clue what priority four people are seeing on their computers around the globe.
So this happens all the time:
Set priority. Ask if they have the mission heading. Wait for them to respond.
Wait for them to stop fighting because they stopped somewhere to respond.
Wait for them to stop spamming "Help me I'm down."
Kick them from the team or not .
Maybe they know where are going maybe not.
Maybe they go in the wrong damn direction because when I have Purple Reign incomplete and they have it
completed their arrow says "Go to Purple Reign", not "Go to Kodiak."
In a team of two its easy to synch things and talk this out, in a team of 5 from around the world, its a fourfivin' nightmare.
This conversation happens a lot.
Person1: My missions says its complete
Me: Ok return to Kodiak and turn it in
Person 2 moments later: I'm at Kodiak and nothing is happening?
