I'm a WHM playing the PC version on the same logitech controller that Yoshi uses, and I've never had a problem. If, for instance, you're in an 8 man group, if you click on the tank, and position the tanks in the 3 and 4, or 4 and 5 spot in the party order, you'll always default back to the middle of the list. Then you're only deviating from that point a max of 3 or 4 from the tank.
Know what I mean, jelly bean?
