Yes, if I was going to do it anyway
if someone is being rude cause they dont have much time and cause of that is insulting the rest of the group. ill go the extra mile too make the run even longer.
however if they just mention it and ask politely if the group could step it up slightly so he/she can finish it before a certain time. i gladly put in some more effort too get this done
I can understand if you get upset when people start calling you names, but I personally just don't give a damn about your petty emotions and just want to finish the dungeon. Because newsflash: everyone is rude when they have anonymity. It's just utterly pointless to have some kind of righteous crusade against mean people in a dungeon, especially as a tank since you're just wasting everybodys time on something as trivial as someone saying "go". You seem so self absorbed and seem to think you have authority over the rest of the group just because you're the tank. Well guess what, more than half of the time, my groups won't need you, because I can just heal whatever melee DPS capable of taking your role instead until we find a replacement for you. You're serving as nothing but a roadblock to our goal of beating the dungeon once you start having your thumbs up your own ass and refuse to do anything until you get votekicked, or bored watching us killing the next 3 bosses without your help. Because really, once you stop doing your job, you're not any better than anyone who ever insulted you for being "slow". Having the whole group suffer because of one idiot is such elementary school bullshit, and I don't like it.

You won't find an expanded version of my avatar here.
Problem is, if someone is a jerk/drama queen/diva etc. With talking rude or saying something rude. It aaaaaaalways ends up badly, because like you said, you planned to do the dungeon fast, then someone said "go fast", then you decided to go slow just to annoy him. But what you dont know when you do things like this "go slow /sit down afk to annoy 1 person/refuse to tank/refuse to heal "that person"/refuse to ress "that person"/ just being a jerk to another jerk ETC, is that you are the biggest jerk to the 3 other people in your group, the people who did nothing, you just wasted their time.
Now go forth... unleash the tides of Doom... Upon all those... Who would oppose us.
If they say something that is true i will adhere to it.
If they say something that is false i will ignore it.
Just pissing someone off because they pissed me off is dumb and the reason games like league of legends are such a pain to play.
If someone tells me to go faster at level 90, I make sure to go as SLOOOOOOOOOOOOWLY as possible. That means, single pack pulls, make sure healer is at 90%+ mana for trash, 100% for bosses, that sort of stuff. They tend to get annoyed and leave. And then I go back to 1 pull from boss to boss and ignoring healers (Overgeared DK's are OP)
Depends, really. If I'm in a good mood I just let it pass. But if I've had a bad day and I'm feeling pissed off? Damn, they can wait a few minutes.
It's also the way people ask these things. If they bluntly curse and tell to go fast, maybe even insult, then I'm not tolerating that. If people state in a polite manner that they're in a hurry and they'd like to clear the place before their time run out, I take the suggestion in a lot better.
Whats up with everyone taking offense to pulling to slowly, or taking something some random dps says so personally?
I really don't care if people want to speed things up in a dungeon, just do as best and efficient as I can and collect the valor.
for example, about three weeks ago I decided to start my dk, decided I would level as blood, got into one instance the group was fine went smoothly, decided I would go specific to get the quests from the other one, so by the time I entered this fresh run, picked up my quests, the hunter had already started pulling the hoizen you need to kill, you know the one with 49 count w/e it is,
Well, I knew that the group would be fine with one or two of them, so I politely said, "I'm just picking up these two quests, would you mind waiting 20 seconds and I'll do the pulling" needless to say I got a gob full from the hunter for wasting time, and being a shit tank,
So, normally at this point I reply in kind, as I don't give to much of a shit what I say ingame, but I decided to do it slightly different,
First I pointed out, that in the time he'd gone off on a rant, I would of picked up the quests, and caught up and been in the middle of pulling trash,
Then I pointed out he spelled arse wrong, and it was actually a donkey if you spelled it as ass,
Then I told him I don't appreciate people being half cocked eyed retarded seals (alas my favorite insult when trolling)
Then I told him, time arguing in game with him, or time spent doing this dungeon is time wasted either way, so I was in no rush,
He told me to leave then, so I said I have a better idea, I'm coming up to you guys now,
Got up there, and as it happens, I had a lot of my non combat items on me, like my picnic umbrella, so I set it up and a safe distance with a few other things, watched while the hunter cursed with caps locks on, and followed by pulling the boss, they wiped at 6%, I just sat there chatting some shit in /s
Anyways 15 minutes were up, and ofc I got booted, didn't bother me, I had a good laugh,
so I requed for the same dungeon as I just wanted to do each dungeon once for the quests, and what do I get, exactly the same group who just booted me, I lol'd hard and proceeded to antogonise this hunter, I sat down again and watched as he was full on caps lock type all sorts of shit, he pulled they all died again, he left the group, and I said, right now that, that moron has gone, I'll do it right, and we cleared the place
I should add I wisped the two dps and healer to apologize that I wasn't going to move, the healer wasn't impressed, but the two dps thought it was hilarious as well
but yea, I have no time for any body in lfd that tries to push my buttons
Annoys the hell out of me when people at the start of dungeons say "I've only got 10 minutes before I have to pick the kids up" etc. If you know you have to leave within a quick period of time why bother even queuing up?
Same goes with people who queue up and then when it pops they give the "BRB 5 mins, just got to do something".
As to rude people in LFR.... Generally the 'rude' people are actually asking for the mechanics to be done properly and are just trying to get through to the mouthbreathers in the group. I treat LFR as another raid, but not because LFR is overly serious, but because stuffing up in LFR can lead to lengthy runs and a lot of sitting around. Get it done right, and get out of there. I'm pretty much always doing the right thing in LFR so by proxy I'm doing what those 'rude' people are saying I guess.
Honestly, you seem to be the type of player most people dislike. Just reading your post and comparing it to others it just seems like you have a vendetta against anyone slowly your group down. You would rather be in a group of jerks all cursing/needing on everything possible if it allows you to be done faster.
If I were in your position OP, I would continue pulling as fast as possible because that is how I am. I love to pull fast and get big groups so we can aoe everything down. Everything is a speed run since I have no clue about the time restraints of everyone and nothing bad can come from a speed run which isn't crazy (pulling more than your group can handle). HOWEVER, if a player insists on being a jerk I can and will need on any and everything that player needs. As a protection paladin/demo warlock (By bringing a plate friend along I have tanked all heroics fine <3) and I will need on anything possible if the player is a jerk. By doing this I get the run done fast for the other players in the group while getting back at the asshole of our group :3 To date, I have yet to be vote kicked since LFD/LFR have come out so come at me haters!
Normally I try to keep things moving along at a steady pace but i'd probably have taken a bit more time over each pull because of that guys attitude.

When I encounter people like that, it usually IS the tank being a diva, thinking they're entitled to do whatever they want.
I usually just initiate a vote kick on them which is successful 90% of the time. After that I secretly hope that it might have taught them a lesson, but I seriously doubt it with all those hotheaded, self-entitled mega-divas that exists in this game.
