    Verrrrry interesting. A good read too. He definitely knows what he is talking about but I'm surprised he didn't mention anything about COH. In that game, the enemy can and will ignore the tank and go after the weaker members of the group. I know. I once had a fire character who could pull the aggro off of God if he were to be in a fight. And one does not have to be stupid or smart to know that..... Fire is bad! hehe

    Anywhoo! As for where the term tank came from? Not an idea. I've rp'd for over 20 years and the only time I"ve ever used the term "tank" for my fighter in d&d was after I started playing COH. If anything, it could be the mmo genre that started that term because I've not seen the tank term in any of the game rules I've read. *scratches head* But I'll tell ya one thing. My fighter is the truest epitome of a tank hunkered down within a bunker. Good luck on hitting her. hehe

    If I'm not blind and silly, I do believe cryptics is handling that situation with dps and damage mitigation. COH was rather stupid with it, but its a learning and growing process and though I agree with the writer in the aspect of "one should become weaker as they take damage", not many players of mmos would go along with that, thus resulting in only the hard core mmo players participating in such a game. There is also the aspect of the tank as it applies to COH! Come on!!! Those tanks/brutes are rather wimpy in damage capability when compared to metas such as the Hulk of Juggernaught. If either one of them hit you, unless you're one tough ass mofo, you aren't going to be waking up anytime soon. hehe

    Anyway, I could go on all day. hehe But thanks for the read. It was awesome and as always. This is just my two cents worth. hehe
