    I feel bad but I can't stop laughing

    So yesterday I went out and got myself Ancient Portal: Dalaran on my mage and during a HoF LFR tonight I put down a mage table, a banquet and the portal as well. One ret paladin clicked it, I waited with baited breath and about 10 seconds later he died (as it so happens...lol).

    I was laughing until I opened my map and noticed just how far the graveyard is from the drop location, and as he was ghost running to rez, the group got impatient and vote kicked him.

    I'm sure he was raging and probably wants to fuck me up big time but...I just can't stop laughing. Am I a bad person? I guess I knew if anyone clicked it they'd die...but I did it while we were still doing trash and such, figured he'd have plenty of time to tell me I'm a prick and rez and port back in...

    But yeah, if you have played this trick (or had it played on you) what do you think? Is karma a bitch?

    Yes you are a bad person.
    WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.
    Warcraft Lore has gone from one of the most vast and interesting stories in all of gaming to a bad Thrall Fanfic by Chris Metzen.

    But was it funny enough to counteract the bad karma I have brought upon myself? I like to think so.

    Paladin clicked it and died from fall damage? Paladins have bubbles?

    Probably wasn't expecting it. Caught me off guard first time I used the teleport and only had a few feet before I got the slowfall off. Still lol'd pretty hard, haha.

    No, as a fellow mage I say you are not a bad person. Why would he even port out during trash anyways? And without even protecting himself or checking the name of the portal. I say he deserved it, just sucks that they kicked him.

    Its a book from Scarlet Halls, basically the short story is it portals you to Dalaran - the OLD location of Dalaran, hundreds of feet above the crater in Hillsbrad. Its pretty much the best thing ever invented and leads me to believe whoever is running the mage show at Blizzard is greenlighting portal trolling - and I love him for it.

    Here, here. Amen to that brother! But yeah, I wasn't about to speak up and say 'Don't boot him, I trolled him to death' because that'd lead to MY kick, as unjust as either kick would have been. :-P

    Did he ask for a portal?
    Did you place the portal on top of the banquet?
    Was the run over?

    If the answer to any of the above is yes, then you're a bad person.

    If not, the paladin was an idiot.
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    I wouldn't call you a bad person, but if I were you I'd feel guilty for making him get kicked. I've been a victim of the Hagara summon before and I found it hilarious the first time.

    1) Nope
    2) Nope, right next to it.
    3) Negative, clearing trash toward 2nd boss I believe.

    The more I talk about it the more I feel completely justified and glad I finally got it to work on someone. Meh, I'm sure he requeued and was happily on his was minutes later.

    Between Leap Of Faith to the biggest mouth breeder, mass summons to EoE at LFR Hagara, and mage portals before Hagara yours is also a funny one. He brought it upon himself because he decided to... click on a portal. My favorite portal related one was using Jaina's Locket to make a portal to Dalaran, and then blame the mage for trying to be funny. I also remember one time someone clicked my portal, and then I had to go outside to summon him because he didn't have the portal to Uldum or didn't have flying.

    Been feeling terribly guilty, but like I said, that feeling is waning pretty quickly :-P

    Haha, now that's a good one. The tooltip for mouseover on the Jaina portal says "Portal to Dalaran" just like a mage's portal too? It's almost like the mage portal designer is ENCOURAGING us to troll.

    This is a great example of the toxicity that has crept into the WOW community. Childish pranks like this, which waste player's time and mucks with their game experience, are pathetic. I don't think you really feel bad, seeing as you are basically bragging about it on MMO Champ.

    I felt bad that I got him kicked. I didn't feel bad that he clicked the portal that I placed to troll. You are half right, I suppose.

    But isn't this a game? Aren't we meant to have fun? I had fun at the expense of one other persons fun. I'm not debating this. But TOXICITY is a harsh word to use to describe it, lol. Maybe take this game a bit less seriously, yeah?

    awsome.
    Simply awsome
    that sounds more fun than dropping demonic portals on the very edge of elegons platform and watching people bounce through them, then carry on running forward to their doom }
