    Cruelty in bgs...

    So, I went and did a few bgs with some guildies of mine. Sooner or later the inevitable always happens and AV pops.

    Now I actually levled my current priest main thro bgs in cata so I went for some nostalgia and used the good old
    /e has reported you AFK, type /afk to clear it!


    To my UTTER amazement plenty fell for it, even got a rage /w from a person who then did /afk (he left the group at least, /w sounded that way too).
    Now, I really had a good laugh on that, especially since one of my guildies fell for it as well (we all on vent even, god)...but....am I evil?
    I was Once a Nab
    Then I rolled a Paladin
    Thats when I found out
    that I REALLY was a Nab

    Nah, thats one of those "fool me once" type of things, it happens, just laugh and re queue but if you fall for it again...no one to blame but yourself.

    Thank you for sharing your experience.

    Nope, that is just a great strategi to get all the retards out of your group :P

    This has to be done every now and then if you want your team to actually win anything :P

    If people fall for that, they deserve it.

    This, I fell for it once when I was like 12, never again. It's like in LoL someone said to me omg guys if you press D it makes you dance, in a reflex I tried it and wasted my flash xD it was stupid of me.

    Not evil at all, I might actually start doing that to clean big BGs out a little before it starts

    and I never fell for it because I always clear /afk by a single jump

    Since so many people complain about bots now - you basically cleared out stupid players, but kept all the bots - I don't know if that was in your best interests.

    And whether or not it was evil - who cares? It's not like you'll have some lasting karmic mark on your soul for making people have to take a 15 minute que break for their next BG. It could be considered good karma because you made them step away from their computer which is healthier and theoretically better for the soul as it means they aren't participating in surrogate negative karma through virtual murder.

    It's dumb, it's not helping your team in the slightest.
    Certainly not with botting being the way it is now.

    Evil? No.
    Douchebagy move, yeah.

    Pity it really only works well in AV. Tho Ive seen a few fall for it in the smaller bgs as well....

    It's really annoying when people do that. Though it's nothing compared to those people who pop bloodlust just before the gates open.

    You're SO FUNNY guys. Never seen that one before!

    Picking on people that are inexperienced is fun.

    You asked if you're evil.. no, but you clearly don't care a whole lot about others, so take that as you will.

    No, you just need to get reported once.

    Yes you can and I have first hand knowledge. It is so fun watching people leave by the handful though and makes your battleground experience that much better.

    Bloodlust/Heroism/Timewarp all reset as soon as the gates open. Thats what makes it funny, to see people like you rage over nothing.
