    lol and ouch.... So glad I don't play any more. I can read these horror stories like little Aesop's/Grim Brothers tales during breaks and never have to worry about going through it and fruitless hours wasted.

    9/10 for effort and entertainment!

    Pretty much how every Grim Batol I've ever been in on HC has gone :/ Most annoying thing is despite all the group changes, working hard and getting to the last boss with one last change, and having the newcomers abuse you 'til you leave and they reap the benefits (well, assumedly)...

    8 tanks in Grim Batol hc before the first boss - after 9th tank at throngus the group broke up (
    I tried to sleep on my keyboard - Not a good idea, WASD on the cheek in the morning.

    Yet another story:

    So one day after i started doing Archaeology to level it up/get Zin'rokh instead of queing as tank i qued as dps, since i have pretty decent gear and I'm certain that i am fairly competent at Dpsing.So after about 40 minutes of being the queue i get:Halls of Origination."Nice" I thought should be fun right? Dead wrong...The group composition was:

    Arms Warrior(Me)
    Warlock
    Mage
    Priest healer
    And
    Prot Pally(The idiot)

    So we are at the first trash pack some marks were put up on the trash,but as soon as they were the pally just charged in."Oh no" i thought "not this kind of tank"Needles to say...we wiped.The healer simply could not keep the tank up due to the massive oncoming damage.The pally of course being an illiterate moron says something in the lines of:"WTF HEALER?! YOUR SHIT!"And then it went like this:

    Me:"well of course what did you expect going in without CC?"
    Pally:"CC is for n00bs"
    Warlock:"OMG wrath bby"(some broken English and nonsense was thrown about)
    We go in again and we die again
    Pally:"OMFG shit group!"
    Me:"Would you please start using CC?We died because you started rushing in like that"
    Warlock:"same as above"
    Pally:"Stfu noob you pulled 2k dps there lol scrub" (I tried to stay alive for the most part and there were adds everywhere all unmarked and the tank kept switching targets so assist was virtually useless)
    Pally:"Wrath was better"
    Pally:"OMG Cata brought shitty players"
    Pally"I'm better than you scrubs lol"
    He attempted to kick the healer it did not pass
    Pally:"OMFG scrubs!CC makes stuff easy!" (My brain melted at this statement)

    At this point it was just a cycle of me telling this guy to stop it and him insulting the whole group and later the Warlock and priest left(Priest DCed anyway)

    Pally:"Me>you"
    Pally:"OMG people so bad in Cataclysm"
    Pally:"ROFL"
    Pally:"anyway cba with you"
    Pally:"I am tank i get insaque"
    Me:"Well i get instant queue too soo fuck you "
    Pally:"Good luck whiping then"

    Yeah biggest idiot I've seen in the dungeon finder yet.Funnily enough he had PvP gear some poorly itemised stuff and a wrong spec and couldn't play for worth a damn.Anyway we finished HoO with me tanking.Wow i really hope i could meet this guy again it was just too damn awesome as to the amount of stupidity that was seen.A real wrath baby.

    You know, normally my resto druid gets really good groups, but tonight, for some reason, I've been paired with people from Cenarion Circle and it's been horrible. Tank refused to tank adds in Vortex Pinnacle and I died on the very first pull because the big add beat on me the whole time. I told the tank to get control of adds and he told me to quit crying. I dunno, I guess I'm old fashioned and expect that healers heal better when they aren't spamming heals on themselves.

    So i jumped on my Holy Pala, as i managed to get Tyrande's Favourite Doll, and wanted to see how it works. Deadmines pop-up.
    We got Paladin Tank. Went through first trash packs, no CC, and i noticed Tank was gettin a lot of damage. Right maybe he's not using his soft cd's to help me out, but whatever.
    First Boss went down easy - no probs at all.
    Then we move on through trash again, and i notice he is taking loads of damage. I inspect him and he's got like 5-6 pieces of blue pvp gear (bloodied i think). So i ask - can You switch Your PVP gear for PVE, You are taking loads of dmg mate. Then he gets angry, saying in chat that it is PVE Gear. So i check his gear again, and it's still PVP items (+ some greenies and ilevel333 blues). Only thing i noticed was that Crit Strike was reforged to Dodge on PVP items >.< So anyway we proceed through door to 2nd Boss, and tank pulls 2 Oaf Ogres (or whatever they are called) and he basicly drops like a log. Well at this point we killed the trash (Druid was quick to react and CR'd the tank). After i ressed dead I said that, that's it for me. Advised Tank to get some tanking gear from normals. Waste of time, but in the end everyone one (including the tank) were like - ok, thanks guys. BB. /Leave
    So no Rage quits, or trying to kick people.

    the kick system that NEVER works.. Is by far the thing that pisses me off the worst.. If you get a shitty player kick his ass, if you get an AFKer kick his ass.. If you get a selfish prick kick his ass..

    But nooo kicking has been deemed ilegal by blizzard and there for gives everyone in the fking group a 40min cooldown from when you enter, before you can kick anyone. Meaning you are NEVER gonna neither finish nor wait for 40 mins if you have an AFKer or your just not gonna finish if you have 2 dpsers laming about at 4k dps..L2P gtfo give us the ability to be able to kick these mentally challenged wankers.

    See its pissing me off just talking about it..

    This is because you're a cock. It takes like 20 seconds to explain tactics to anyone that isn't stupid, and someone taking the initiative to explain it's their first time is rarely stupid.

    LOLOL I do 12k dps on my spriest on BH10 and i have yet to down a raid boss in cata - because I R PVP HERRO
    5.5k dps is ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE HAHAHA - 9k dps is so bad for a raid i don't even know what to say for that ... this is hilarious

    And if they are clueless and stupid? I don't have to be a saint either since many people in lfg act just as dick anyway.

    As I normally only queue with guildies or friends, the abuse I get is somewhat limited. However I wanted to dps today, since nobody was online. I get DM and immediately the tank bails. The healer was geared and the dps looked okay, so I clicked tank and we got a dps right away. Now I normally don't bitch about low dps (6-7k ish), so I didn't mention how terribad the shaman was. Anyways, shitlock keeps pulling stuff. I keep taunting and swiping etc. I then ask, if he could pls watch where he's going. He laughs...... He blew up the door to the area with the parrots and out came several mobs (as they always do). Then the healer ran in and pulled the damn parrots, pulled adds standing at canons and so on. I was like boiling at that time.

    Down all the bosses up to Cookie, where I just wanted to ask, what strat to use - i.e who's eating and who isn't. Shitlock pulled Cookie, so I did what i normally do - EAT! He then yells at me "stop eating the food ffs tank". I didn't even respond to that, I just kept eating lol. Anyways, boss goes down. I ask them nicely to stop pulling for me, then the healer says "lol, there was nothing to tank". I said, that that wasn't the point. I explained my point and still got "lolz" "QQ" etc.

    Then I said, that if they couldn't respect me and the role I play, I would just leave. I left...... It's not like this is the worst I've experience in LFTARDS, but somehow it just pissed me off soooo much. I think in general, that rude behavior is alot more insulting than ppl just perferming like they where blind and deaf.

    This certainly reminded me, why I should NEVER tank for pugs - Enjoy your fucking long queue times!

    ^^This.

    When the dungeon breezes by, "great dps"!
    When no one ever dies or everyone survives a tough fight, "great healer"!
    When tank pulls too slowly for *one* person, "shit tank!"
    When a dps (all cds, flasks+pots up) overaggros the tank in the first second when the tank has just got round to starting to hit it, "shit tank!" or "why can no tank ever hold aggro against me, am I so l33t? QQ!"
    When tank pulls too fast one-time for *one* person, normally healer, "ffs, tank!"
    When a run finishes perfectly paced with no threat issues at all and zero deaths, "great group!" (at best).

    Couple, this with:
    - a. tanks being able to gear up past heroics faster than anyone else by a mile (due to zero queues because no one else wants the job) and the large overlap, these days, of tank and dps gear
    - b. Vengeance in raids largely making threat a non-issue, therefore by comparison making heroic dungeons a lot more work and skill required than a typical raid
    - c. ratio of required tanks to raids vs dps and healers meaning supply of capable tanks is actually far greater than demand,

    if good tanks didn't actually enjoy tanking, its a wonder that anyone tanks for dungeon pugs at all!

    today i tried running a random took my 30-40 minute dps queue like a patient person while doing archaeology got in Halls of origination the second the load popped the tank and healer were gone and we sat there baffled we waited 16 minutes for the next 2 second they got in they were gone we waited 20 minutes same result after that i just ragequit haha i never ragequit is there something wrong with that heroic or something

  17. #1377
    Heres one from today.
    The healer we had was doing both DPS and Heals.
    I dont know whats worse, the fact the healer had higher DPS than the rouge and shaman or that the healer was doing dps

  18. #1378
    God, this is the worst one that I can recall:
    I was leveling a priest, and when I got to around ~54, I specific queued and got Dire Maul. I was the healer for the group, and I was more than friendly, and out of nowhere either the tank or dps (because in the end, they both ended up ganging up on me) started insulting me, mostly because of my server. I ignored him at first, but eventually he just started getting extremely nasty with the insults. When they missed a boss, I tried to lead them back in the right direction, and then one of the other group members started ganging up on me. Just absolutely terrible insults that I did nothing to deserve. I left the group because I couldn't take it anymore.

    Erm what? Agreed, neither of the 5mans or raids are very difficult for tanks, but in raids I have to atleast focus more to avoid doing any mistakes.
