I started playing WoW.
Yep. Qued for a random dungeon on my level 87 alt, did a bunch of quests while I waited for the pop.
Those quests got me like 1 bar of XP? lol.
Dungeon pops, everything goes ok, no one speaks to anyone else, i'm doing my frost mage thing, topping the dps and killing teh bad stuff..
During second boss fight the priest healer who apparently is a real tool is telling me to sheep one of the adds which I had already sheeped and now has the enrage on it which means it cannot be cc'd for a certain amount of time, so I ignored him and sheeped it again when it was possible.
While it can't be sheeped hes crying at me and telling me to sheep it and counterspell it.
I get a pst from him after the boss is killed that reads "learn to play mage", so it voted to kick him with the message "Healer is a jerk, psting me learn to play".
I figured the group would either not care or they would actually see I was doing my bit and would vote to kick him.
It didn't pass. No biggie, kept moving on and as the group jumped on to that ridiculous excuse for an elevator that goes up and down real fast without stopping, I missed it and 10 seconds later as I was heading up on the next rise, I was removed from the group.
These situations happen all too often and although in the grand scheme of things it's not a big deal, the principle is that i refuse to play with people who treat others like crap and insult random people in groups and raids and instead of them being punished for it, I am the one removed the group...
I make a solid attempt to be a good addition to any group or raid I join in terms of doing my job, doing good dps and having a good attitude, but so many other whiny kids or jerks with bad attitudes ruin it for me, and being a casual these days because i don't have hours to throw away to this game every day, I will not pay money that I have earned to be put in groups and raids with these sorts of people.
Hopefully Titan is released sooner than later and we can all have an epic gaming experience once again.
sidenote: i am eager to see what sorts of replies i get to this post, i'm sure some might be a good example of what i'm referring to.
