People are dbags 24/7 and twice on Sunday. It is been like that since Blizzard started cutting their GM staff down to nothing and stopped caring about community building.
This is not a reason to create a thread on the interwebz unless you're looking for emotional support.
i did frost lord on my 89 dk...it took like 4 core phases to kill him but no one said a word, but then again that battlegroup is dead....but this kind of attitude isn't new, and quite frankly after playing LoL...i'm just kinda numb to elitsts and scumbags and just ignore what they say...i mean, if it bothered you so much, just leave. toxic behavior sadly...isn't going anywhere...you can either A) respond and further the troll or B) ignore it and just do what you came there to do, they owe you nothing, and visa versa....if they feel the need to point out your lack of gear, then ignore them because this kinda of behavior stems from the exact same place that bullying does...lack of self esteem that warrants others to point out the flaws of others in a attempt to boost another's confidence.
I dont sympathize with elitism or bullying at all...granted that's not to say i havn't been elitist in the past, but let's just say if your nice to me, i'm nice back
9k!!!!!! I simply don't understand how
You say people are elitists, i say a lot of people don't give a flying f*ck about wasting others' time
If you don't like to read what other people say about it than don't. Ignore button is there for a reason.
Also there is no reason to take offence at this "low geared scrub". You ARE "low geared scrub", there is nothing to discuss.
It's like taking offence at "you are 5-year-old kid!" when you are actually 5-year-old. It does not make any sense. Well, 5-year-old kids do it all the time, but you are supposed to be a grown-up, aren't you?
People act like total retards in random groups. And they act like that for 4 years, from 2009 when LFG was first implemented.
There is nothing to be done about it but running dungeons with your friends.

WoW's community is vile. Everybody thinks because they have easy purples and shit that they are automatically good at the game and have some srs ego problems.
quitting really does relieve all that stress WOW used to bring. there's the assholes you're forced to interact with in the game, then the assholes who design the game. does the good really outweigh the bad? between this and the posts from the official forums where people are complaining about different things it's a great reminder of why I quit and motivation to stay gone.
don't get me wrong I loved the game, devoted years to it ...and really having nothing but those little avatars in a world that doesn't belong to me to show for it. plus all of the anger which has stuck with me. look at these people here even defending being an asshole to someone with low dps. I knew how to play all of my classes perfectly well and big surprise their dps varied wildly. dps is gear dependent. sure you can ding fresh 90 with dungeon gear and your dps will be far superior to someone who quested their way to 90. and there are a number of peopel who chose that route. there will never be a justification for being downright cruel to someone. especially in a place that should theoretically be fun. but that's where the devs making the game a chore to the best of their ability comes in...the crap flows downstream.
This said, Ahune the DPS is hilariously low Most people are on 10-20ish in most groups I'm in. I think of those players that aren't still 89, a lot are just ignored profession alts etc giving people extra chances at the pet.
That show how much people understand mechanics nowadays.
1. elite phase: high hp, lots of armor add;
2. adds phase: slow popping, low hp adds, disadvantage to melee, just stack the f up to aoe;
3. core phase: small window, quick enough to have most DPS CD unavailable from the last burst;
All contribute to an avg dps of 40k-50k for ppl usually doing 130k on RF tank/spank bosses.
I've been trying to get the AGI cloak on my newly dinged Rogue, but I've lost it 3 times so far - all to plate wearing classes. People just love to be jerks in this game.
I've found over 6 years in WoW that the player base is a pretty miserable group of people. It's unfortunate because between NEVER getting anything worthwhile to drop in LFR, never getting little items I need like the AGI cloak, and generally miserable people, I have to ask myself again and again why I pay $15/month for this nonsense. It's likely because of the good memories in the game - if it were based on the current game alone, there's no way I'd pay to play, and likely wouldn't even play if it were free.

For people thats "offended" by this behavior, grow a thicker skin. If u cant stand elitists and ppl saying "ur a scrub noob", perhaps u should log off and read a book or watch TV
I blame the MOBA games personally, every time when some dudes goes ballistic I ask if they play LoL or Dota, most of em says "yes"
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
I just did it on my tank last night for lolz.
5 Core phases.
I didnt say anything but I was dieing on the inside. I just cannot grasp how people cannot push out atleast 40k dps in heroic gear. How can people be hanging around the 28k dps mark still? They were Cataclysm numbers...
Also had the terribad hunter with growl on and a warrior who kept getting flung back and failed to understand why.

The notion that ridicule is going to get these players anywhere is moronic to me, in a world where bad players are only ever called retards and made fun of everytime they do something wrong, they just develop this idea that everyone doing better than them is an elitist and needs to be ignored, I've seen this same behaviour from guilds I've been in and even a couple of friends I've gotten into the game, they won't care if you are right, they'll only care that you insulted them and they won't take anything on board that you have said, assuming you even bothered to give some reasons with your ridicule.
