    My brother recently started playing, and wanted a little moral support going into his first MoP (non-heroic) dungeon. I went with him on my i560 spriest, and despite holding back, my dps was obviously disproportionate to the other group members, so I kept pulling off the tank. There were no wipes but the tank got really pissed and initiated a group kick. That was my first and only time being kicked from an instance group.
    Remember this, kids, it is very important. Even if your mommy makes you a super hero costume, do not attempt to do any of these things, especially flying. Because you cannot do it. You do not have super powers. Because there is only one Super Grover. And that is me.

    When the tool was first added, you did indeed get Deserter for being kicked. I don't remember it being 30m, but it was still annoying.

    My little lvl 85 gnome here has been kicked a few times from the first 2 MOP instances for being a cheat lol, seems doing over 100k dps on boss fights while the rest did under 25k made me a cheat...It's always when i've had 2 or more lvl 87 in the group, kicked is maybe the wrong word, the rest of the group would leave, guess it's the same thing.....we are going to report you to blizzard.....L2P

    Got kicked from an Ulduar achieve raid about a year ago because on the first achieve where you leave the towers up, I was in a siege and took out one of the small middle columns in the path. This was a full group mind you. The raid leader was an idiot and thought that the small columns in the center path were for the achieve, he didn't even know that the achieve is done by leaving up the tower buildings (to enable HM). He didn't even let me explain the achieve, just insta kicked. I didn't even know why at the time, I had to ask him after getting kicked.

    I literally took a fairly decent unsubbing break from wow for about 6 months after that. Not that it by itself was enough, it was just kind of the straw that broke it for me at the time after a run of particularly bad groups in raids and dungeons.

    Oh yes, plenty of times. Majority of them is from pug raids though, and the reason is always the same.

    Last time I was kicked from a pug it was Immerseous normal I think after 1 attempt. I play healer and I have done so since the beginning of the game, I'm pretty good at what I do. On this particulat attempt I was designated to a side that had players that knew not to stand in stuff, and at the other side of the room was a disc priest who had people near him that didn't know to get out of shit. After we wiped becuase people died the priest linked healing done (I was probably bellow the tank for reasons described above) and the leader raged at me. I explained what happened on my side and that he can't expect a druid healer to out-do a disc priest 20 seconds into the fight with the circumstances we were presented with. I got kicked for being "bad" and talking back.

    This is why I don't pug or play with casuals.

    Especially when you entered the days where it was 100% the dps' job to maintain their aggro levels, which was the case in TBC and to some extent also in Wrath.

    And yet, it's really and always was fairly simple...
    Don't attack until the tank pulled and established aggro by actually hitting the mob. Use the assist function and attack the target of the tank.
    This is not hard to do at all. Anyone who's played long enough to know how "fun" it was to wait for the first hit until the warrior tank applied enough sunder armor, knows how to wait but a moment.

    I mean, I get it... one doesn't wanna be in a dungeon forever... But the fastest way to get through is, by actually paying attention and not to cross a line where a wipe becomes possible.
    LOL, you've seen that I've played for a long time, as far back as vanilla, so you should've at least put together that I know the whole "wait for sunder armor" debuff, hell I used to be bear tank in BC so I know the wait tid bit w/ stacking 3 lacerates and having Omen/Addons that tell you when you're close to pulling aggro; in fact we were forced to practice waiting in raids with my BC guild otherwise we would not get loot. It's obv me.

    OT: Ele Shammy was kicked from Flex 4 for dying to the poison debuff from Siegebreaker trash twice. I popped all defensives and started healing to help the healers but no dispel, if I could've I would've.

    Been kicked many times. Trying to remember some memorable times.

    The number one time was a raid for VoA. The RL was looking for tanks, so I told him to invite me. He said "MT or OT?" and I said "I can do either". He repeated himself, as did I. He said "your not tank?!?!?", I replied "yes I am a tank, I can do MT or OT, it doesn't matter", to which point he kicked me. He went back to trade saying "LFM Tank for VoA". I whispered him to say that I was a tank. He replied "your tank?!!?" and tried to invite me. I told him to fuck off and put him on ignore.

    I've been kicked from more than one LFR for suggesting that people who don't bother to try should be kicked, which is met with the usual "omg its just a game, u elitist!". I'd try to explain that I wasn't asking the world, just that people don't afk all the time, or auto attack all the time. "ITS JUST A GAEM!!". I learned my lesson now.

    Lvling my shammy as resto, I used to top the DPS meters whilst doing my healing job, got kicked a few times for it. I'd understand if I was letting people die, but I think it was just a lot of butt hurt.

    For those kicked for ninja pulling, GOOD!!! Pet hate of mine.

    Or it just means that you've kept your mouth shut and did your job, thus not giving anyone a reason to kick you.
    Listen kiddos, trust Handsome Jack. You want every part of this insanity.
    So many people are gonna die.
