Tanking her under the couch seems like it removes some of the 'open' areas she can send you to when she uses FA. I could be wrong though. Since it only happened to us once, ever, it seems like it was better to tank her out in the open to maximize our 'open' space.
If I'm reading you right, this matches our experience.
We used to fight in the middle, and I only got FA'ed upon once or twice ever in the open like this. But against the couch, it tends to FA on top of me every other pull or so. You basically have to decide - FA on the MT, or punts on the MT. After being punted 3 times before the first FA once, I decided I had had enough. Something approaching half a dozen punt/lash wipes in a row was getting on my nerves.
The changes on the PTR will not fix some of these wipes. She can punt so readily on the MT that you're going to see punts before ANY lash whatsoever lands (see the first post above, the PTR changes to saber lash do NOT fix this wipe). Once you're saber lashed once, you're probably okay. But it is not unheard of for an offtank to go a full minute without taking a saber lash. However, by then we tend to have had that OT ported onto the MT. Surprise cockfags, its Shahraz.
