Wow, so many replies,werent expecting that. Also not as much ragestorm as I expected.
Some fast replies:
Yes, I know I need to turn my casual off, and for exactly the same reason you stated is why Im raiding flex, though I would really like to raid higher difficulties.
The only things I left out of the story are the constant whining about my dps from siegecrafter wipe 2 until garrosh, even if we oneshotted paragons without deaths (if I recall correctly).
My friend were leading the raid as a tank, so I didnt get kicked, I were just tired of all the whining and didnt want my friend to not be able to kill him this week, so I left "voluntarily".
Ill try openraid, sounds like a good thing!
We only wiped on the last phase, Garrosh didnt even get 50 shaenergy.
If you're wiping on Flex Garrosh with you being the lowest at 150k, then the group was utterly failing at adds and mind controls, simple as that. High dps will make it significantly easier due to bypassing many of these mechanics, but they were simply failing the core encounter mechanics, nothing more.
atleast be happy you can join a flex 4 grp with 538 ilvl!
i got an 548ilvl shaman and had only 1x a flex clear in SoO. normally i wont get an invite cause low gear or cause im an ele sham
those who say "dont bring lfr mentality" to flex are the biggest liars and bullshitters out there - they have the exackly lfr mentality of totaly overgear and bruteforce through 110% of mechanics leaving no place to think and execute mechanics only to brute force - people were dying like idiots in iron star/ garosh slam in other realm ? healers fault - nobody in raid interupting mced ? dps to low kick the lowest dps so that the highest numebr fappers coudl fap to numebrs instead maybe interupting shit they need to interupt - tanks failing on taunting and dying ? healers fault . its exackly lfr if ur not doin it in 100% guild group, the same cursing half of raid leaving after first wipe - where is this frikin difference from "lfr mentality" ?
only difference towards lfr is that people who play like shit, but think how great they are , can feel superior by putting ridiculous req to join their groups- this is the only difference atm that is between lfr and flex - there is no other .
I've seen people doing far, far worse dps. And not getting kicked. 150k is okay, but you could improve a lot.
"The sword is mightier than the pen, and considerably easier to kill with."
Besides, let me bring you a sample from my own Garrosh FLEX. I went with my main (570 ilvl tank), was leading the raid.
Got to Garrosh wiped cause people were ignorant and slow in burning down the adds in phase 1 and healing was bit meh in phase 2 on second wipe.
One of the healers along (went with 10 people, 2 healers) started complaining that DPS was low, that's why we died (all DPS were pulling 200-260k).
When I said that it was low healing not the DPS, then I got a shitstorm on me from the healer ("I do this on heroic, the DPS should be way higher" etc).
How did I know it was healers fault? When one has to rotate CDs when they not suppose to be needed even (and as I killed normal Garrosh so many times) I knew how much beating I can take with good healers.
When I got a 3rd healer in (a guildy of mine) we killed it, although I still heard the objection of we should get and extra DPS not an healer. So it was healing which was the issue. I just ignored the QQ as I was the leader I stood my ground. Didn't kick anyone and the QQing healer didn't leave as well ^^
Your friend should've stood up for you. RL makes the call who stays in the raid and who is kicked. If the 5 people don't like... Find a new ones. The raid finder, your realms /2 and open raid chat gives you ample of chances to fill your group up.
My guess they have been in groups where there is has been a higher group DPS so when they saw things weren't dying as quickly as they are used to their first instinct was to blame you. But like Sonnillon said unless your hitting the enrage timer the DPS wasn't your issue. As frustrating as these type incidents are just keep your head up and try again.
My friend did back me up, it was me who, as I explained before, left. My friend were going up early the next morning and didnt have time to look for new people. Please, stop talk about what my friend should/shouldnt done. Its noy why I made this thread.
This ain't yo diary.
Go make another garrosh flex and quitchyobichin.
150k is kind of bad. You were right to be kicked.
