    Oh look. Another person suggesting I shouldn't complain. You are being dishonest. It takes time and effort. Not everyone is casual by choice. Some people have jobs and children and school and don't have time to grind out io rating. Not to mention, there are others things in game to do. So in your mind, 1200 took no time and effort on my part, but if i just put some effort into raising my score to 2.8 or 3.5 (because that is easily obtainable for a casual, right?) then I can be considered good and get invited to normal groups. Do you listen to yourself?
    Oh look the "I hAvE A jOb" Jocker .... im 9/9M and i have 2,2k io guess what i have a job too, and no i dont tell you to get 2,8k (I seriously doubt that you get over 2k Judging by your comments here ) i tell you to get near the score you want to play, for +15 a min. score of 1,4k and so on.

I've been declined dozens of times. My io is 1200 and my item level is 413 and the highest dungeon I've done in time in a 14. I want to say first it's bs how people expect you to have done a 15 in order to allow you into one but how can they if you don't give them the chance. I am polite and state my spec and even throw in that I have eng brez just in case (I don't plan on letting anyone die but some people ignore mechanics or I'd add that I have tail net, chastise, grip, shackle, and fear for affix kite, 2 dispels for reap and no cd offensive dispel. So I don't simply just queue anymore but do frequently try to sell myself and tell them I can handle it, to give me a chance. I also dps the entire run when I am able. Obviously heals are priority but every bit helps, especially interrupts via chastise.

    Well, just tonight I get invited to a AD 15. Finally, I thought. Let's do this. We get to second boss no issues. We're on second boss and our shaman is not doing much of anything and he stands in green mess and dies. I tried to rez him twice with my eng brez and the druid tank even went over to rez him. He said something along the lines of "Just wipe it guys" when we weren't dying. We actually finished the boss while he was dead, then he left group. Group disbanded. Looked some more and got into another 15. Was super happy. It was a TOS. Again, we make it to second boss with no issues. We're on boss and he's below half HP and one of the DPS goes down. Again, I tried twice to rez as did another person in my group and they did not take it. We ended up being overwhelmed and wiping after almost taking out boss. The DPS left group and we disbanded. I was about to give up but was super determined. So I looked yet again at group finder. Applied to numerous groups in between these runs only to get denied - this is usual as I mentioned beforehand. Anyways, I applied to a ML 15 and they invited me! What luck. Third times the charm, I thought. Again, we did fine up until second boss where tank didn't want to use totems but a stacking strat? I feared, mage nova'd. We tried to cc, but got stunned and was targeted and quake came. We wiped. Came back and used totems. Mage went down as he/she didn't run from mob. He wanted a rez but it was down. We killed the boss and moved on. The mage went offline and never came back. Group disbanded. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

    Sure, I could push my own key. Earlier on the week I had a 14 key after pushing a 12. I figured I'd be smart and be a little more particular about who I let in because I have in the past given people and chance and it's come back to bite me, but that may be my luck. Actually last week we had a mage who assured me he was good, did less dmg than the tank and said it was his spec. The key was killed, but the mage made off with a good key and a 415 with a socket. Anyways, so I invite higher io people for this other key I was trying to push and who would have guessed it, we're headed to 2nd boss and the tank is pulling funky and asking hunter to put flares up and at one point he went to run out of the dungeon instead of just tanking a group that was accidentally pulled. Him and 2 of the DPS start arguing. I say "guys, can we please proceed?" Because I advertised it as a chill group for completion but aimed to push. The tank tells the hunter 'f*ck you mum," (I think he meant to say your) and then he left the group. I downgraded the key and tried with a different group and did the same - was more particular about who I invited. We got in and everything was going fine until someone chain pulled another group and I tried my hardest to keep people up but we ended up wiping. Someone rage quit and we disbanded.

    I used to only keep playing wow because I pvp'd but now that I have barely done rated this xpac and none this season at all, I decided to get back into mythic and until now it's kept my interest but honestly, I was struggling to find reasons to get on wow and do stuff and with crap like this happening in like one of the last things I enjoy in game, I feel like just moving on and doing something else with my time, for real. I'm almost at 50 neck and I don't even know why I spent all that time grinding for what? Sorry to whine and be a debbie downer but I just wanted to share my recent experience with mythic+ and see if anyone has the same terrible luck?

    - - - Updated - - -

    So people leave over a single wipe (or no wipe at all) when they think or know we won't finish in time or even if we can finish in time. There's no rhyme or reason.
    this is quite typical.

    raider.io was invented by people who wanted to ensure that they can keep the difficulty level of mythic + on level of lfr by going there in overgeared overqualified groups but still be able to pretend that they are god's gift to humanity .

    the level if entitlement to smooth wipeless runs is terrible

    but its clearly showing how toxic and detrimental to game is making hard content .

    I just saw someone with +18 SOTS with 1370 io rating and M 1/9. So how do you explain that? They must have been carried or?

    Needing to have 1.4k io in order to do a 15 is you trying to gatekeep on what is acceptable or not.

    do keys around lvl 13s and add those u played with to ur friends list, just add those u think can push high keys.

    Well, it all comes down to then, why not make your own group. If you do not like how other people are doing it, then do it better.

    Did you skip 3 years in high school too? Skipping from +3 to +6 is easy, from +12 to +15 not so much.

    Imagine you have a +15 key (boosted by guildies/friends the week before). Now you want to time that in a pug... do you really want to tell me that you would invite 4 other guys you don't know who only timed +12 before?

    Make your own group. That's what I do. I couldn't even tell you what my raider io score is, or anyone else's for that matter. I've never used it.

    I do try to perform better than others at my level but also behave and act like an adult who respects that everyone is giving their time and energy to do a key. Just make your own group is another typical cop-out response. As it ignores the hardships of making your own group and trying to push keys, as I covered in my first post. It fails to address toxicity in mythic+. It's also silly to say do better than them when I am not in the position to be geared from mythic raiding and have friends from mythic raiding join me in a mythic+ run, so you can't just expect a casual mythic+ person do better than someone in that position when they don't have those advantages.

    Everybody deserves to have the right to use whatever metric they wish to use to gatekeep for THEIR GROUP.

    I say that being unwilling to make your own groups while practicing the group making principles that you preach is a cop-out. You have exactly the same power to make a group as anybody else.

    By "do better" in the context of my statement, I obviously did not mean "play better". My statement was obviously not about performance. Do a better job of being inclusive when making your groups, and do not use toxic metrics like IO.

    I have pushed keys after inviting people who had not even completed that dungeon on the key's level or even the previous level. They were within 2 levels completed and had a similar io and decent gear. I gave them a chance and we did fine. Other times I've invited people with higher io and equal or higher level done and they pulled mediocre dps, failed on mechanics and or rage quit.

    We were never talking about skipping from a +12 to a +15. I said a ++13 or +14 to a 15. There is a difference there.

    I never said they weren't allowed to decide, but it doesn't mean I have no right to complain. We were talking about you gatekeeping what is and isn't acceptable. Actually, that was directed at feral druid ist op, but it applies to you as well.

    And its not "ME" gatekeepig you it is the standard given by the M+ Community and if you cant handle it then sorry but you wont get invited.

    I would bet that your IO score is higher than mine, but I also am not so arrogant as to assume that I know better how other people should form their groups. It is totally ok for someone to not want me in the group they are making, for whatever reason they see fit.

I'm not saying I am amazing, but I got to the #2 spot for horde priest healers on my server group (of 6) alone by pugging, not being carried, so I do my job just fine and then some. That's not to say you must be carried if you have friends, I'm not saying that. I'd love to be in that situation but my guildies (who I occasionally heal for) are doing 5's and 7's and my real id friends are doing like 16-21. Save me the "raise your io" crap because it isn't the only indicator of skill and 1200 isn't bad for a casual.
    To be fair, raider io doesn’t spawn elitsm. Raider io is just an information hub. A database. Elitsm has always been and will always be there, because good players don’t want to play with bad players. That’s just how the world works, in games and other areas.

    That's not what I said. I said I only do TD's not I've only done ONE TD I could have lots of TD's ranging up from 10-20 but my score will still be 260 and I'd still be able to carry any 15 or 10 TD.

    Agreed. I think if you add both seasons up I have ran Shrine 5 times because that dungeon is horrible and drops nothing I need.

    I agree. If you timed a +14 before, I might consider inviting you into a +15 for the same dungeon.

    If a player has only timed all dungeons on +10 before, they are still oblivious to so many important mechanics in each of the dungeons. You gain a treasure trove of knowledge every time you progress 2-3 keys higher. You are forced to learn the mechanics that could be ignored and outhealed on lower keys.

    Quote Originally Posted by Evelyn View Post

    I prefer someone who has timed at least a +14 before. It is possible that in +13 you took damage from double cyclone strike, took damage from Power Shot + Cleave, stood in Noxious Breath, and then clinched the kills on 3rd and 4th bosses with dry 0% mana remaining and entire group at 10% health. It is possible you failed on many other mechanics in +13, but survived them all and still 2-chested the key. It is possible that you are still not aware what are some of the deadly abilities in Temple. It is possible that the damage in +15 will get just over the top for your health pool, and you will start dying to each of these mechanics.

    You confuse elitism with some sort of meritocracy. All of the above applies to me as well. I will not apply for a hypothetical "+23 in time" pug on my main char if the highest I have timed in the dungeon is just +21. That would be hypocritical of me. Likewise, my experience in high keys on my main healer char does not make me entitled to sign up for medium level keys on my well-geared healer alts if I lack proper experience on these alts. Temple is actually a good example. How do I know I have enough mana for +15 tyrannical Temple bosses on an character that has healed a +13 Temple at best? How do you know that my alt won't run OOM in the middle of these boss fights if the highest experience I can show you on this alt is at best a timed +13 Temple?
