I usually just queue as tank and if im nice i even go into defstance
with gear thats too good and then it doesn't matter because dps can tank here anywa
You attack the wrong target, which is bad
Your tank sucks
If your role is DPS the damage meter is the ONLY metric that is important after mechanics in any given raid encounter.
As DPS we are lucky we even have any way to measure of quality besides the simple we beat the encounter.

maybe some people want to actually have some sort of challenge while playing the game? maybe it was their first time thru the instance and they wanted to experience it?
i know personally when im new to a game, or pick up a game later than my friends i dont like to be powerleveled thru instances. i prefer to actually go slow the first few times, look at the environment and actually experience the encounters. sure boss fights in dungeons are generally not that impressive but some encounters can be fun and often times a precursor to what you can expect in raids and stuff.
also some people actually like to do their designated role properly. if you got some geared to the teeth dps in with a bunch of people in questing gear it makes the content trivial to just about everybody. the other dps doesnt get a chance to work on their rotation, the tanks basically cant tank the mobs/boss because the geared out dps is pulling aggro (and most likely doesnt care because they assume the healer wont let them die).
these are just my thoughts and opinions however and generally speaking after ive been through everything a few times i dont mind getting it done faster but i can see the reasoning behind kicking someone if they want to actually experience the content the first few times thru. also i might add ive been in groups like that that had geared out people in them and they resulted in bad mouthing the lesser geared people, telling them that their gameplay was terrible and their gear was shit. granted this doesnt happen very frequently but i have seen and witnessed it first hand. not saying the OP does this but you never know

I got proper praise for what was one of the first times this exp pack for my tanking in a random (not just, ty for fast run) and I wasn't exactly sure how to react to it.
Then again, this is just random groups, my friends are always glad to queue with me! Random groups will be random.
(Not that I care about any of these things, I just want to go through the dungeon fast, tend to try and cap my mains VP in 1 day so my alts get the VP buff, generally don't talk unless it's a talkative group and then I'll make random jokes, nothing to do with the dungeon at all)

I pad in heroic because I'm really fuckin skilled [insert sarcastic twitch chat emote here]
Aggro dump means to drop quickly. There is nothing Quick about stop attacking
Heroics are so bad now that if the tank is well geared and you have good players who don't make terrible mistakes you basically don't have to heal at all.
Iv had that to, and im not that great geared (mix of LFR/normal and HC items) the tank kept complainning about me "tanking" in wich case i say that he needs to ramp up his threat, as auto attacking and only applying FF/BP isnt enough...
Since I have been doing so many 5 mans on my alt lately, I notice sometimes these 3 or 4 man guild groups that que and seem to just be out to troll. They do things like have their hunter pets constantly taunting off the tank, roll need on everything they can and generally act like jerks.

I have to admit, this is a thought process I'll never understand.
I'm paraphrasing the votecaller's inner monologue here, but: "I can make an safe guess that this is a competent player who knows their role and will not be competing with me for gear. Their gear will allow them to tank/heal/dps easier, leading to a more efficient run. Clearly I'd better votekick them."
Knowledge is power, and power corrupts. So study hard and be evil.
Doesn't take long to blow up.
Nobody said anything all run. Got to last boss, healer left after getting some ring from 2nd last boss. Rogue killed himself off the jump somehow, DK tank said "you have lots of gear. Then "you have been removed from the group".
That's one reason why I don't like heroics.. its run by the stupid. Random vote kicks to fuck people out of their valor?
Last time I did a hero, over 2 months ago and same deal.. half way in the run and next thing you know back in org.
Specially when this word is "awesomeness". Come on... It's easier to think you screwed up time because you BELIEVE you're too geared, and that pissed up the others.
Forget MMOC and go complain to the mirror how people kick you "cus they jelly".
