Yes, every damn time. No matter if I'm on my 503 geared Blood DK or my shitty ass blue and green scrub mage or warrior.
Try to only queue with guildies as a result.
I have carried the DPS in a lot of random dungeons, but that's mostly because I've run them out of sheer boredom on my overgeared fury warrior. Don't have an active account right now, but I did this a lot in Cataclysm and Wrath. On a 404 item level fury warrior near the end of Cataclysm, I outgeared the majority of players who grouped with me in dungeon finder. I know it's not ALL about gear (and in fact there are a lot of bad players who couldn't keep up with me on my shit-geared Warlock alt either), but your average-geared player who recently hit 85 and was trying to get some gear from heroics had no chance of keeping up with that.
I didn't mind carrying groups though. I wasn't doing it to show off or be a dick or anything, but complete boredom. I was usually the first to jump on board if guildies just hit 85 and wanted someone to run randoms with them. Most people didn't complain, since I wasn't taking any of the stuff that dropped.

OP has a point. I often feel the same.
Just yesterday i was dealing 50k dps more than the second in place, a mage in almost full epic gear. And i'm not all that good, with just LFR/valor stuff.
Not to mention tanks/healers in scenario. Taking AGESSSS.
In my main hunter, 510 ilvl? yes, ofc I carry the team for a easy and fast heroic.
On my alt, a frost dk, 460 ivl? I still carry ppl with higher ilvl than me.
Srsly, there are ppl with nearly 500 ilvl that do squat dmg for the gear they have, and ppl with 470+ doing 15k- dps. I mean, 15k- dps. W T F .
I don't think it's showing off if you have a lot of gear and do 70% of dmg overall, it just means that the hc will be a fast one. But that doesnt mean the the other 2 dps should slack or do less than a disc priest.
I mean, queueing as a disc priest, doing a random hc full pug, and finishing bosses at 2nd place dps... vs ppl with some epics (so not freshly dinged)...
What I mostly see are dps that have no knowledge of how to do dps in that character. Using the wrong glyphs, talents, no gems nor reforges (seeing frequently hunters with no expertise), hunters /locks leaving pets with taunt on, dks doing a "rotation" of diseases and death strike, you see everything on these random hcs.
I usually don't say anything, because most of the times i said something to make them understand what they were doing wrong, they usually either ignore or insult me.
One example, a hunter doing lousy dps, I see he's not using his pet(him being BM):
"hey hunter, you have your pet in passive, and you are BM."
"Fuck you, I don't care."

I remember having warlock 497 in random dungeon que. He claimed that he is doing all job and when he was in quest greens he did 50k single target dps. He died (because healer "lagged" when warlock was standing on shadow-orb-thingie-before-last-boss) and we kicked him out of dungeon while he was swearing at healer for being scrub.
Oh, and yesterday i did 5-8k DPS in my tank gear as boomkin on 89 lvl alt. I am so bad at this game.
I just want to point out, that doing more dps is not equal to carrying the dungeon. Healing ass out of 4 melee without tank (having ret qued as tank to get instant proc) is carrying, not doing more damage. There is no enrage timers, and no one dies in dungeons becaouse of lack of dps.

Sometimes I'm the MVP of a Dungeon, and other times, I may be the one that sucks really bad. There are so many variables to this game, and since we all aren't robots, performance varies.
60+ % of DPS and 35%+ of healing done while tanking is common.
Thankfully the ratio of healers who complain or just suck is 1/15 and a rare occurance. Sadly the dps are usually always subpar or don't try.
I'm too scared to do heroics because I'm still in levelling greens with a couple of epics. Tried a scenario and my DPS was horrendous compared to the full-geared guys. So, nah.
So you're in full epics, and you're doing content designed for people in questing blues and greens to get gear to get to epics, and you're complaining that you're being grouped with people in questing greens and blues?
I feel like I'm missing something.
I'm late to this party but when I group up with someone if everything goes down in a reasonable amount of time, I could not care less about who is carrying whom. If you in your 497 epics think that fresh 90's are going to play as well as you with the same amount of experience, you need a reality check. Someone in greens or blues could play at the top of their game and you'd still likely be carrying them nor do I doubt for a moment that you would realize that they're doing the best they can with what they have. Nonetheless, there are all sorts of skill levels in the game and it would be exceedingly boring to group up 100% of the time to run dungeons with people in the absolute best gear and with skills to match.
You sound like you should be really running challenge dungeons to be honest. If you're that damn good, then the gear won't make any difference in those.

It's a magical world, Hobbes, ol' buddy...let's go exploring!
When i que with my 486 blood dk i carry, but blood dk is kinda OP in 5mans
And i dont mind as long they do as they r supposed too.
I put the laughter in manslaughter
Blood DK problems: to many ppl at daily place, cant pull 8packs *cries*
BF3>CoD Cola>Pepsi PC>Mac Xbox>PS3
Except Blizzard set a precedence for people being able to jump straight into the latest tier upon hitting max level and spamming dungeons for the last two expansions. Expect people to be PISSED BEYOND BELIEF come 5.2.

There's nothing to them. Read up a bit on the mechanics if you're that worried about them. I've healed for groups where the highest DPS was the tank at around 35k boss dps. It was slow, but we still won. This is the gear level the content was designed for. Don't listen to the epeeners.
Since I stopped raiding about a month ago, I've mainly been using the daily HC/scenario to VP cap each week. It is extremely rare to get anyone anywhere near my gearlevel, so I guess most raiders go with guild groups or cap trough CMs (which is really quick valor btw!). I don't mind at all me doing 75%+ of the groups damage, the full run might take 5 minutes longer but so what. I'm happy to help. Only complaint I got so far was when I tanked a Scarlet Halls run on my DK and the healer cursed at me from healing too much since he felt worthless. He left after 2nd boss with some rude comments.
These groups would for sure finish the heroic just fine without me, I'm just speeding it up a bit and it's all good.
But really, it's definately not all about gear. Go to Brawlers arena and have a look at the full raidfinder/valor gear people hitting enrage on the rank 1 bosses. I have no calculations for this, but I'm pretty sure this means they are pulling below 25k dps, on a single target fight, with pretty much all class cooldowns avalable. At the same time take a look at how many of these people die to the bosses with just one very simple mechanic. Multiple times. I'm not gloating over other people's mistakes, I'm just quite suprised how unaware one can be. I bet they have no damage meters installed, and no clue on their own performance, because to them it doesn't matter. They toss spells/attacks at mobs and see numbers come up and think they are doing more than fine.
The only thing I can't stand are slow and low pulling tanks. Thank god I'm a hunter with a bugged no-cooldown misdirect.
I don't have an issue 'carrying' people. I know what it's like to be in poor gear with the alts I have had to gear. Then again, there are some terrible terrible players in LFD but you can't do much about that. It's so painful when you are in bad gear and you outdps the geared players. Obviously I don't say anything to the group or the player as that's rude but I do sit and snigger to myself.
What bothers me is when people make it a problem. For example, the time I saved them they spend paying their respects to the pack of mobs we just killed. That's what grinds my gears.

In other news, the rewards for running scenarios and in particular for running 5-mans are pretty crappy, unless you need valor for something, which most players don't (at the moment). So once players who aren't regular raiders have gear that gets them into LFR, that's the end of running 5-mans.
