Low lvl dungeon dps is serious business
Low lvl dungeon dps is serious business
You are lying! I never hit you! YOU ARE TEARING ME APART, LISA!
I remeber in Wotlk, before the LFD tool was added, i went with my guild me as tank and a healer from guild, Randoms has always been idiots, atleast 50% of the ppl i met back then. This has not changed with the LFD tool, i still run with my guild, for nice runs and nice ppl.
Get a guild that youl fit in, you will rarely find ppl you like in the LFD tool.
Might be sad, but it has been like this even since vanilla. Ran Rend runs etc with ppl cursing,simply beeing bad and angry.
Get a guild if you want to get a nice sosial experience in wow, without it, you will most of the time not have a nice time.
But for a last note, ppl whine less when im running as tank and we dont wipe. However if we do 1 wipe hell breaks loose .. lol
Also, I agree with your first sentence. I have had virtually no issues running heroic 5-mans. 99% of the people are nice, and at least listen to learn the minimal strats when required. /shrug. I just can't relate to the OP's experence.

I hate these casual Fridays ruining it for real Fridays.
Best advice is to find a guild and quickly.
Find one that fits your basic needs and then things you like to do (even if it's running LFR together with as many as you can).
I promise you that it will alleviate some of the stress from bad players making you want to beat your head into a wall.

that's how you properly do everything at low levels. round up, aoe, round up, aoe
But there is no reason that you can't find a guild that's more towards the casual side that can offer you dungeons and relaxed raids but still know how to not stand in fire. Will you find exactly what you're looking for while trying to take a relaxed approach to WoW this time? Maybe not. Will you come close enough that it won't matter? Absolutely.
i dunno, i played since 2.4 sunwell patch (only did a few bosses in kara at most in BC)
and the amount of baddies i met in BC is pretty much the same as in cata, except i notice them a lot less now since i can generally carry their dps on my hunter.
or carry them on my warrior.
Strangely enough, I've rarely encountered any of those issues in LFD.

Doesn't sound like it should be a problem for you at all to pick a guild with nice people that wouldn't go fan-boy screaming at the thought of a good challenge runner.
On our server alliance is 2/3 of the entire population, and have the more hardcore raiders on that side, but of course that's differs from server to server
Personally i havn't had any really negative whine from wipes, except once.
The group was somewhat annoying, pulling sides, and didn't reply to anything at all, so i said something like "Say if you don't think we can manage me pulling the entire room". Of course none of them said anything.
When i entered the room ( a bit slow, since i wanted the healer to get a bit of mana for it), another pulled and i lost the last bit of patience and pulled the entire room of bored students and the professor in response(Which i always do if the healer some capable, but this wasn't so we wiped :P )
Then they started to whine and ask what it was about. Told them that i've asked, and another pulled, so i thought they wanted to die.
They kicked me! *sad pandaface*
Anyone trying to say the game has always been this way, it hasn't. It has far progressively degenerated over the last 2 years to appease the casual gamer. No one can deny it, and anyone who tries is just in denial themselves. I've been off and on since cata release and it definitely only is getting worse.
The COD mentality has invaded many aspects of gaming, including WoW, this "fast food" "get in get out" style of gaming is quite prevalent in LFD.
Top 1% might think that is boringly easy too, but i guess even you don't think it should be for those only.
I think your problem is you have been on and off, and therefore don't know how it really is ;P
Catas instances was very unforgiving (and very fun), but it made people QQ endelessly about dps, healers, loot, amount of valor etc.
now the HCs are easy, and it's nearly free of whine, and the players that want to try something harder do challenge runs and raids.
Try to go back to Molten Core or blackwing Lair. It's not that hard concepts. It's mostly easier than what we have today, if we look past that aggro was much harder back then, and things needed better gear. The concepts in the fights wasn't hard.
A boss like the omnitrons or stone guard is highly complicated compared to that.
