I was leveling today, and I feel like I'm a pretty reasonable guy. I was on my resto druid alt q'ing with my tank friend to get faster ques. About halfway through the dungeon, I realized that the priest that had come as dps was in discipline spec, not healing, and casting less than half the time we were in combat.
I told the priest that I'd like to have everyone actually try to complete the dungeon, but I got no response the entire time. After 4 manning most of the instance, the tank made a particularly big pull, and died before I could finish casting a regrowth. I decided this would be a good point to try and kick the priest because he still refused to even come close to some sort of trying.
Now, the priest was the leader of the group, and up to this point, I had been unable to initiate a kick for reasons that are unknown to me. All it said was, this player cannot be kicked for 10 minutes, 6, 2, etc. As we waited the last 30 seconds to be able to kick, I noticed the priest didn't have ANY weapon or offhand on at all. None. Period. So I replied, which I maybe shouldn't have, with a, "Do you seriously not have any weapon equiped at all? seriously?". Mind you, we were level 35 at this point in maraudon, so its basically impossible to assume they had no chance at a weapon, and it was obvious to me and everyone else that this person just wanted to get carried to max level.
After waiting to be able to initiate a kick, and wasting more time than I would have liked, about 10 seconds before I could start the kick, I was removed from the instance. I was completely shocked. They kicked the only person that had gotten them that far into the instance in the first place.
I'm tired of bad players having this much control over the fate of groups. All it does is make for a bad leveling experience. This is not good gameplay, and this is not fun for me or for anyone else involved, except for the guy getting carried through the instance, who everyone was unable to kick the entire time they were being bad and wasting every else's time. I may sound like I'm QQing here, but, that's because I am, and I feel completely justified in doing so. There are groups like this CONSTANTLY while trying to level, where one or two people ruin the entire experience for everyone else, and no one can do anything about it because of this messed up kick system that is useless and doesn't work.
There honestly has to be something done about this, because it takes away an entire option for me to level through content, which is completely ridiculous. Stop letting people slide through unscathed while doing absolutely nothing to contribute to the group, or blatantly trying to hinder its progress.
