i love it op i to will now do this whenever i can
Yep! Working as intended, lol!
Nope! I hate fun and this game is srs business!
So you admit to acting like a douche in game, then you want to get butthurt when people call you on it and tell them 'take the game less seriously.'
I don't think someone who comes to forums to brag about something as childishly pointless as killing someone with a portal has any room to talk about how seriously someone takes the game. Apparently killing one player, getting them kicked and wasting their queue/time is 'serious' enough business for you to further congest an already overstuffed-with-rubbish forum with this waste of a topic.
PS: You gave me incentive to level my mage to 90 (apparently PvE tier gloves aren't enough incentive)
"When i am done with you, you won't trust your own mind."
I don't think griefing people is funny to be honest, you should have at least waited for some idiot who actually deserves it. That Paladin was innocent and could have just been a young kid. People who treat WoW like their virtual school playground should grow up, sorry.
And your poll options are biased and not objective, so the results are meaningless and useless. Grats.
"If you look out of the window as a human being, at nature, all of nature is unconditionally and absolutely beautiful wherever it is. Whether it's a jungle. Whether it's a desert. Whether it's the Arctic wastes. Or even your own back garden. The only ugly things you will ever see when you look out of the window are things made by man." - Stephen Fry
Eh... Don't see the "funny" part in this.
Remember this, kids, it is very important. Even if your mommy makes you a super hero costume, do not attempt to do any of these things, especially flying. Because you cannot do it. You do not have super powers. Because there is only one Super Grover. And that is me.
OP did not create the portal ontop of the banquet or mage table he supplied. It was to the side. So it was 100% purely the fault of the player moving his mouse directly over the portal and clicking it, while being within interactable range of said portal.
The fact he created it to see who might click it is curiousity. Anyone generally would not be clicking a portal in LFR, they are there for the raid.
I openly place the blame squarely on the Paladin who clicked it. Cause the mage sure didn't MAKE him click the portal.
Games are not necessarily "easier" today. You are just a better player.
It takes more now to impress many gamers than it did 2-5 years ago, because so much has already been seen and done.
Many players expect to be wow'd with every release of a beloved franchise.
These are generally NOT the fault of the developers, but the fault of many players over-hyping and/or setting expectations too high.
Nope this game is srs business... sounds like it wasn't much fun for the pally - but hey you got enjoyment out of it, so yea it's fine that it was at another person's displeasure. If the way our world works now adays, or the internet has taught you anything - there are no ramifications for this besides some guy being upset you never have to deal with, so good for you!
I'll just leave this here(the red part of the writing is important to this thread):
Really? If someone in a raid clicks on a portal that wasn't there to trick them into clicking it, then it's fair game.
I don't see any problem.
I always had a blast when ppl at the end of a raid ended up in the middle of nowhere, read Stonard. lol
Or ppl clicking the crap out of the fake portals sitting on top of the real portals in Dal.
Reloading, bitching in Trade how the portals are broken.
Ok, there's a bit of evil to make someone lose their raid spot in LFR, but on the contrary, it's their own fault for clicking on a portal during a run.
What if he didn't die, because it was a real portal? Then he'd stand in Dalaran, in opposition to the raid location where he's suppose to be.
famous one). However the mage in question isn't doing it all the time, and he wasn't targeting a specific person.
Also the ability of a subject to laugh after being a prank took place is not only relying on the prank itself. Some people can't take a hit. In this case there is a lesson to be learned by the subject.
I remember putting a portal to Exodar and what not on top of Throne of the Tides chest.
I remember leap of faithing half my realm into the SW bank. My friends laughed, some strangers laughed as well tho some were angry, some were asking how I did it (I explained or showed), others to get out (I explained to HS but could trigger death), some were threatening with complaint. I never heard a word from a GM about it.
But I believe both of these are worse than what OP did. Why? OP is NOT targeting a specific person, AND is merely making use of a feature implemented by Blizzard. It is basically "working as intended".

And as for happiness being a zero sum, that's my opinion and you are free to disagree with it but at least give me examples why. In a happiness is a zero sum world we see countless examples on television and the media where, they may not be REAL entities, but the enjoyment comes from watching them suffer or otherwise have to persevere against odds we ourselves would not like to face.
Walking Dead is a popular television show where our favorite characters deal with the threats of starvation, zombie attacks, and human decency on a daily basis. Forced to make tough moral decisions to even stay alive. We derive enjoyment from this program, on a basic human level, because of this. Knowing we are not the ones suffering. Its all in how you interpret the world we live in. And yes, I gave an example from a fictional television show. Here's one that's basic enough for even some of the mouth-breathing bible thumpers in here to understand - if someone in your class farts, you laugh because 1) the fart noise is funny? Maybe if you're 12, 2) because subconsciously you know it causes embarrassment for that person and not you. You take your family to an amusement park to have a grand old time? There is a man who sits in a dark damp booth running that ride you are enjoying, unable to spend time with his own family. This is how the world works.
I'm not the only one here who needs to crack open a book and do some reflection. Basic. Human. Instinct.
I welcome you to give examples of things you deem fun and I will point out the the fun is coming FROM somewhere, at someone's expense, whether you choose to acknowledge that basic part of how our society works or not.

I will give you relationships fall on the weaker side of the spectrum, but it's still there.

Skinning a bear should aggro every bears in a 40 yard radius. It makes sense, you are actually skinning their best friend.
