"Team PowerPoint Presentation isn't just a legend, son. They were real. Those guys set out to do things that people said couldn't be done, but they were just crazy enough to do them anyway."
"Who actually SAID that it couldn't be done? They. You know, . . . THEY. No one knows exactly who 'they' are, mind you, but everyone agrees that they said it."

Team PowerPoint Presentation was formed to experiment with the Level-55 SWTOR operations in game version 3.x to see what was the fewest number of people required to complete them--especially in cases where fight mechanics make such a thing seem impossible--and to try out some 'outside the box' strategies to see what would happen.
The team went on to complete all 4 Level-55 operations in 8-Player Story Mode (along with 1 Nightmare Level-50 operation--Explosive Conflict--a special case due to the mechanics of the final fight) without the benefit of Bolster and with only 3 people.
Along the way, we learned some interesting things about SW:TOR operations.
Do you know...
...how to do tank-swaps without a tank character . . . without any Taunt-capable characters?
...that in NiM EC, the droids at the beginning of the final fight get a stacking buff that increases their Accuracy, eliminating the 10-level advantage?
...that sometimes /stuck can be a useful tool to help win a boss fight?
...what happens in TfB if you try to kill the Dread Guards out of order?
...how characters can change colors during the fight with Operator IX in TfB?
...what happens in S&V, if you leave Horic alone until there are only 2 Cartel Warlords left?
...how to effectively aggro and kill the entire mob at the beginning of the Styrak encounter?
...how to get through the DF maze to Draxus with only 3 people? *
...what happens in DP if you kill the NPC inside Raptus' tank challenge?
In version 4.0, Team PowerPoint Presentation returns to short-man other operations with either 3 or 4 players, as required.
