    I was once kicked for lets see....Trying out a high mastery build as a monk(i was taing too much damage beofre) and told to try it with guild not waste others time(small guild so not much choice)....Oh and of course for trying to fucking rez someone caue the healers were asses and just left em there after the fight.....

    Que shitstorm from both of us me being told to do my job me telling him to do his tank and i start discussing swap and bam out...Oh right also dissed stormrage their server by mentioning i know many people who were leaving JUST because people like them were on it...

    Some people seem to expect perfection out pf LFR you want a perfect LFR run go with guild...You wanna run with people experimenting and random bads(which may very well include me) then yes go LFR...

    There are reasons i say new tanks NEVER get to learn....Too damn toxic and we never get the chance leveling because it's too fucking easy.

    OP is just frustrated.

    All of this can happen even in normal mode/hc mode pug groups (getting kicked for any reason). Its not a problem with LFR.

    You generally don't get kicked from pug groups for pointing out that someone else is AFK.

    Apart from the fact, that if you help aoeing the adds you most likely get aggro from them and then die to them anyway, because LFR tanks are rarely good enough to hold them.
    it is almost impossible to die to adds in LFR on that fight. There is usually only 3-4 out at a time and they do almost no damage. Plus, if you are single-target dpsing them, they die so fast there really isn´t time for the tank to gather them up. I think they have like 800k hps or something like that.

    And this is one of the problems with having raiders in LFR. You don´t know the fight. I am not saying you did this, but I can picture a raider screaming at the tank to pick up the adds when in fact, as a dps, I can easily tank two of them and kill them before a tank could even get to me. On that fight, the doors change so fast that it is actually better to have the non-boss tank be ready at the next door to taunt... the dps can easily clean up the adds without the tank.

    That's pure conjecture, especially if no one says anything, especially if it might be under the threat of getting them kicked for speaking up. I also can't imagine people wouldn't be happier if everyone participated to make things go faster.

    I honestly don´t get this ´toxic´ environment stuff. You are confusing being mediocre players with being toxic, which was the OP. There is nothing toxic about clearing 3 bosses with 5 dps afk and nobody complaining in chat.. i am content with that.
    I'm not confusing anything. The toxicity comes from the apathy of your mindset. You don't care who does what, as long as bosses die. That's rather selfish to begin with, to put your contentment over others, and use that as a moral compass to dole out the kicks. The nature of saying, "Whatever happens, as long as I get mine", is absolutely apathetic. Don't act like you're taking a superior stance for defending the (in)actions of those that stay AFK.

    Do you have any idea how many thousands of characters have been leveled by afking through battlegrounds? It isn´t that big of a deal.
    What? You defend AFK'ing, but you condemn the guy in the video for doing it to make a video to illustrate that it's a problem?

    Honestly I just went over to afk myself. It's absolutely pointless. You are nowhere save doing that random crap...couple days ago I was doing one of those shitty scenarios you are being sent to do with 5.3. Two rogues in it - both permanently stealth walking around doing jack. Just fuck this it's not worth it go afk.

    It's possible the AFK guy was in there with a bunch of friends, I've been kicked by cliques a few times for calling people out for doing terrible things. Happens more often in dungeons than LFR actually.

    I like how it's a given that people AFK/Autoattack in raidfinder and we're not supposed to mention it.

    Sorry, but I just ROFL'd pretty hard at this. Alt+Tab and Redtube sounds like how I used to get through trash pulls in Vanilla raids. XD

    Having 200k dps in lfr and brag about it impresses nobody. Being a elitists in lfr usually gets you kicked.

  14. #94
    you shouldnt point out afk people like that, you need to do it properly like "vote kick xxthatguy hes been afk since before our first boss pull" then you press the vote to kick button. 99% of the time it works cause people are like, oh hey ya that guys right! we are missing xxthatguy! lets get rid of that afker.

    my guess is u complained too much and the lfr people didnt give a shit, decided to kick the complainer instead.

    I usually join LFR, play correctly, don't act like a jerk, and have no issues. The only time I've ever gotten kicked from LFR is when I went afk before the pull on Lei Shen because someone was at my door.

    Better to just not say anything and just do your thing. There will always be people afking or not caring in LFR. If you're there to get loot or say legendary quest items, just finish it and get the hell out of there. The queues are ridiculous at times. I don't know about you, but once I'm in, I sure as hell don't want to re-queue. lol. If you really feel the need to point something like that out, do it in a nicer way. People can sense others being a jerk and it doesn't matter your dps. People hate attitude. It's all in the way you say it, not so much what you said, I guess. Not to say you were any of these things, just pointing it out.

    That is how it works in 'murica.
    You don't get kicked or bashed if you point who is AFK in EU LFRs (at least in france), they get kicked asap and thats it.

    And believe me, I ranted a view times in LFR, about people afk'ing, or playing plain very bad and be rude to other people, and I've never got kicked ever.

    If someone is ranting on the chat, but doing his joing, why should he be kicked ? Just ignore the chat and continue with your LFR, kicking non afk people who are doing their job is doing nothing except slowing down the group even more.

    I was kicked from LFR once, and I was really confused. It was ToT Tortos and some hunter had pulled Tortos while the rest of us were on the bat trash. We ended up wiping, but not before I was the top dps!
    I was rather surprised when my name came up for being kicked. I mean, really? I didn't say anything, I just stuck to my guns and kicked some ass. I even threw out a Tranquility. Saved a lot of people. I was a hero.
    Then I was kicked from the LFR.....
    Not cool, I thought, and commenced with the obligatory combat log.
    I was never queued as dps. I was supposed to be healing the people who were dying. Shit....

    Im kind of the same as OP but I do it more subltle and intelligent. When I see people AFK, I just call them out, like "Charactername, you here?"
    And then when that person goes AFK for a second time or remains AFK for long, i say something along the lines of "Charactername, where did you go again, what happened to you?" That way people can brb fast to put food in microwave once or toilet or whatever but if they remain AFK for long, I make everybody i nthe raid notice. Eventually someone comes up with the Idea of votekicking and enough people in the Raid will gladly confirm because thanks to me everyone is aware of the AFKer.


    My Philosophy is that when a Group is found after Queuing, there is a confirmation window where you have to click "ready". Now if someone is actually not ready for the instance but clicks this anyway, then they are Liars and should not be in the instance.

    It annoys me when people click ready on the ready check when they are nowhere near the boss or even outside the instance.
