    Do you discriminate against certain players for superficial reasons?

    When you see a certain type of player, be it a certain race and gender combo, class, title, hunter pet, transmog set or something similar to that do you immediately expect certain stereotypes from that player for that reason alone? Personally whenever I see a Night Elf Male I immediately think of a younger player who doesn't know what they are doing and tends to spew filth into whatever chat medium I see them in. Bonus points if they are a Death Knight and have a name like Lïçhkîng.

    Every rogue in bloodfang = failure in my experience.

    Every warrior in wrathful ^

    Female Draenei Warriors are either horrible, or very skilled... NO MIDDLE GROUND!

    Maybe it's just my experience but people playing male blood elves tend to be very chatty. Usually too chatty.

    Seeing my fellow ret paladins run around with DBZ hair and GOKUxx make me facepalm.

    But... Aren't DBZ fans suppose to be older now too?

    I have to confess if your name is in any way sexual, I avoid you like the plague. Funbags or Bluepenis or Sexymomma or Redhotdaddy. Never met a player with a name like that who isn't narcissistic.

    Death Knights. Hate em. I see one and auto think they are bad. This stems from leveling 13-15 toons to 85 / 90. Every time I saw one in outlands, no matter what, they sucked. Sadly, its not better at max level. Duel weilding blood dk's gemming for who knows what. They start out stam stacking, then mastery stacking, then idk what stacking. Either that or they have stoneskin instead of the parry enchant. Dps dk's either have no clue wtf they are doing and usually are doing something vastly wrong. It is Very VERY rare I find a dk with any kind of competence when I do pugs. Just recently had a dk who couldn't manage to tank bats With a friggin misdirect on them on tortos. How any tank can't tank with misdirects on them full time is beyond me.

    Oops, meant to click "Yes".

    ~90%+ of Priests I see use Mind Sear on Single Target. I will never fucking understand what goes on through their heads, but every time I see Mind Sear going off, I'm like "What the fuck is it with Priests...?"

    No, most of the time I don't even notice what class or race my group members are, and I couldn't care either way. The only reoccuring problem I have with players are Warlocks who use Rain of Fire on a single target, and that's more from the fact that I don't like slackers than the fact that they're Warlocks.

    I also seem to notice that Tauren Female Tanks always tend to be very good and have a nice attitude, no idea why.

    i discriminate against nearly all alliance.


    no really though, in pvp i always aim for draenei and humans, male or female i just hate both races, and rogues who use bloodfang transmog.
    and i instantly assume male blood elves are bad players
    Too cool for a signature

    Female Blood Elves who Transmogrify their gear to look like whores (most of what I see are Paladins or Priests). I've yet to play with someone who isn't a total douche.

    Same goes for most Goblin Shamans.

    I always aim for the Draeneis, but that's mostly because they look and sound the most funny when they die.

    Okay, there's an exception. Probably the only kind of people I avoid contact with.

    I've noticed that too.. o_O;;

    For me, something about orc male shamans and warlocks irritates the hell out of me. Always has. I still don't know why.

    If they are Destro locks, using RoF for single targer helps build embers for more dps, if they are not destro and are using for single target thet are idiots

    Yes.

    Male Draenei are abominations that should not exist. Worgen too.
    Skinning a bear should aggro every bears in a 40 yard radius. It makes sense, you are actually skinning their best friend.

    Druid's and Warrior's every time I run into one they are horribly bad, or have this "I am better than thou" attitude. Recently thanks to CRZ and things like LFR and LFD I find that every time I am grouped with someone from the Frostmourne server, they have a wretched attitude, so now when I see someone from that realm I automatically assume they are going to be a prick.

    If the warlock in question is a destro lock, it's actually part of their rotation/to build embers and assist with more DPS. Any other spec, probably a moron.

    I speak my mind, I don't sugar coat it and I don't read replies because most of the time it's someone who apparently "got their feelings hurt".

    Yeah, hunters are automatically treated with contempt. Same for Priestitute/Frostitute etc. Anybody who uses one of those kill tracker addons in PvP that emote "X is on a hot streak" gets slapped. I used one of those focusing shadow crystals on a rogue on my own team because he had that addon. Try fucking stealthing with a big purple pointer aimed at you, you scrub.
    Did you like the above post? How about sending me a dollar? I'd have adverts here but apparently that'd break ToS.
