If he's got the placapalooza going on and your targeting is set so that it will target pets (Options->Controls->Never auto target pets->Off) while you have (Select auto target on attack) - you're likely to grab the pets instead of him. In changing that though, if you actually want to target the pet - you'll have to click them. Click targeting for some folks can lead to cursor trails and desync.

Well I guess that is why they call it: Mixed Martial arts. The point: Not everyone is going to fight the way you want them to.
Bullcrap.

This is a boxing match where one guy won't stop clinching because he's afraid to trade blows.

He gets booed, and rightly so.

Duel - possible boxing match.
Private Match - MMA.
Ker'rat/Public Queues - Barroom brawl, back alley mugging, prison riot, and generally those moments in life where you wish you could have told your wife you loved her one more time...

LOL while I do not want to take away from the OP's honest and fair appraisal of the duties of a career carrier officer - this got me laughing

And if you think a win is a win, while I was getting AMS'd by carriers today one of their teammates who is a regular around here was as digusted as I was and stopped supporting them. It won't just be your opponents who lose respect for you.
