I'm amused by the people who try to fake like they're participating. Just the other day I had a rogue who would do 1 rotation of rupture each pull, then autoattack at full energy the rest of the time. When we said we were going to kick him, he sprinted towards the last boss to start combat. But the kick went through and he was booted anyway.
I know kicks are usually blocked by combat and he had pulled the boss (it despawned when he was booted). I guess because the vote started before he engaged the boss or the rest of us weren't in combat.

next time if u want to avoid kicks just dont roll on items off the bosses. if u truely were too gear'd u could easily have killed every boss in between the 5 min item timers. although ive never seen anyone kicked for being too gear'd except when they are egotistical about it.

The word you want to use is "have" not "of".
You may have alot of stuff in your country, but we got Lolland.
Too geared people are awesome. They do all the work and don't take the gears!

Basically, this is it.although ive never seen anyone kicked for being too gear'd except when they are egotistical about it.
Too geared? Hell when I join a 5 man and the tank inspects me I figure a fire is lit in his pants because he goes Challenge mode style on the instance and pulls at hyper speed. Mobs, rats, bosses...lol. I'm not even 'that' geared, so.
I have no complaints unless the tank has shit gear.
probably it's because I'm a healer.
If you just zoned in and were vote kicked, i'd say they were just a group of friends trolling DPSers at a quiet time.
If YOU made an issue of your gear/progression versus theirs, then you probably deserved the kick.
You must show no mercy, Nor have any belief whatsoever in how others judge you: For your greatness will silence them all!
I must be the only person alive that hasn't ever seen or experienced behavior like this in a dungeon, sure I've witnessed my fair share of lippy children and drugged up fiends, but people don't kick because you're to well geared, that's utter bullshit - but I will congratulate you on creating a thread with the sole purpose of getting people to argue.
HOOKED ON DIABLOL, GOOD TIMES ARE BEING HAD
Cool story bro
well from the way you made the topic title i have a feeling you deserved the kick. some people need to spend more time on there topic title. the haha make you feel like a elite jerk who is the best in WoW and was probebly pulling or not watching your aggro because its just a random heroic.
Actually, regardless of the OP's 'full' story, I too have been in that situation, and in different situations leading to that.
In cata, I was LFR-geared because I had some friends in a guild who didn't mind my tagging along, but ultimately I love running 5-mans. They geared two of my tanks and three healer/DPS characters in LFR gear. I eventually went back to doing 5-mans once their guild stopped running. In several cases, I was booted from the groups because I was too geared...I guess the tank and/or healer was afraid I was going to pull agro? Who knows. They complained that my gear was too high, and then suddenly i see a loading screen. I figured people would be HAPPY about that - faster runs, and I wouldn't be rolling on any gear.
Most recent instance, I have several level 80-84 twinks (MoP gear RULES). I have never really had an issue; people love it when I wreck the instance. But on occasion I've gone in on a DPS char, started obliterating the place (my level 80 rogue twink can solo Throne and BRC for instance) and people get uptight about it. I have a macro that, as soon as I get into the instance in a random, I post into chat saying that there's no need for the tank and they can switch to DPS, things like that. Most of the time people are happy for quick runs. But I have been booted because of being in MoP gear and out-gearing the place. Though I suspect that also has a lot to do with the hostility toward twinks in general lol.
I'm not a dick about it. I don't try to rub it in people's faces that I outgear them, I don't make fun of people for the gear they're in, and I don't mind people taking advantage of the situation. One time, I had the whole party put me on follow as I killed everything solo lol. I'm happy to blitz through an instance with people, and people usually have a grand time with it too. There's just always those few bad apples in randoms though, that get butt-hurt when they aren't top dog.
Can't imagine why you get kicked.
Some people are just pricks for the sake of it - a lot of them play this game unfortunately.
I'm not a native English speaker, and yet, I don't suck at English. The argument "English is not my mother tongue" doesn't actually give you an excuse to do so.
IDD...as a healer it's frustrating to heal people that are still building up their gears in HC, and after all that hard work you don't even get loots, it's like boosting people for free :P ( well for mere 80 valour points )
I never vote kick good players with good gears, even if they make it hard for the tank to keep aggro. I don't care how we get through the instance, as longer as its fast and good geared people bring good dps. ( most of the time )
On the off note, the last time I was kicked was in cata while healing ZG. Got kicked after the 6th wipe...only just started learning how to heal as a Druid and that was one mucked up dungeon, and Druid healers were in a bad position in cata too...to this day I still haven't completed it :P
