    Randoms in lfg are the actual worst players. Get friends, stress goes down and keys go up. Ez
    What, you mean DPS might have to use personals on a Fortified DOS Enraged Spirit with no Jar?

    It is just with everything in WoW. It depends on how much gear you have.

    i have since then just started to leave groups where the damage taken from avoidable sources is that high... i'm not sticking around with those people...
    Can you please stop the "..."?

    Why are you dodging my point. My fucking god. It does not matter if the hps number is shown in details or on WCL. WCL is a thing for raids, because it is actually compareable. M+ dungeons have too many variables.

    That's a good point. Never knew it was so high.

    I can also make examples but too often people leave at first wipe simply because they fear they won’t do it in time. Also leavers are usually the ones who caused the wipe itself, that is even more weird. XD

    Doing in time seems to be all that matters. I’m ok with this but only to a degree.

    Yes, it was pretty bad. Especially before the buffed loot. You lost 50% of the rewards at the end of the dungeon by not timing it.

    But apart from these extreme cases, it’s not that all non timed runs are miserable per se, as I said failing the timer by 5 to 10 minutes is not miserable at all.
    Ya if I just need it for completion I always stay if I think it will be finished within 5 or so of the timer. As long as i think no one else will leave either (you can usually "feel" it).

    Its only miserable when it's described as a push run and you need it to be timed and you know it most likely won't be but its not bad enough to leave so you know you've committed to 40 mins without any real gain

    you don't have a point... you shouldn't have to do 6k hps in a +12... that means people are taking a lot of avoidable damage... i never even had a run where i have to do 6k hps in +18...

    Ahahaha I avoid like the pest everything with “push” or “in time” or something like that written into description, 9 on 10 is a terrible key holder hoping for a carry.

    Just inspect the leader on rio. I've found them to be most successful runs as long as it looks like the leader belongs there. They usually fill it with other qualified ppl

    You can easy use WCL in m+, not for ranking, but for combat analysis.

    Below 15 do you really care if some random pug group wants to spend 5h in one dungeons lusting on every pack? RIO already shows appropriate points difference between a group that +3 that dungeon over someone who failed the timer by an hour.

    The "slow pug" will not be bothered to go above 14, as there are no additional rewards for them, nothing changes for people pushing keys in a dedicated group for the fun and glory of it - they will still be doing their push to get +28 done in time for those sweet sweet RIO points.
    I never said that dungeons couldn't be challenging without a timer; simply that M+'s main challenge component is the timer itself. It's fine to dislike timed content but a lot of the "just remove the timer" comments read to me like people who just want M+ to be something it isn't. There are so many different things to do in this game that I find it hard to believe the zero sum "Blizzard needs to change this otherwise everybody will quit" style of argumentation you often see attached to these suggestions.

    A reasonable limit is probably timer + 15 minutes.

    Lol.
    Your original post said nothing about being removed from the group. Also being removed from the group doesn't debuff timer unless you're including the first to be kicked or leaves the dungeon gets the "24 hr debuff".

    In which case, if kicks also trigger the debuff, then that puts even more trolling behavior. Here let me be the group leader and threaten the invited players that if you don't do X then I'll kick you from the group and now you can't play M+ for 24 hours.

    So you're telling me you can't make new friends? Certainly there's always some amount of players online at any given hour minus when the servers are down for reset.

    Big yikes.
    PuGs can be bad because there is no social construct that prevents a PuG from going poorly. Within a community of friends (or guildmates) there is a social construct to handle bad behavior.

    Clearly the surrender button can be disabled until 15 minutes into the dungeon and it can go on cooldown for 5m * 2^(surrender attempts) after a failed vote.

    So they can push it after 15m, then push it after 20m, then push it after 30m, then push it after 50m, etc.

    Realistically, the dungeon auto surrenders at timer + 15m.

    what the fuck was it i posted in the start? i am not changing any goalposts... i pointed out that people are taking excessive amounts of damage and you started going on about how hps doesn't matter in wcl... it fucking matters in a run, stop taking so much avoidable damage if you want to progress in m+... a healer having to do 6k hps is doing pretty much zero dps... that's time they could spend dpsing instead...

    Make new ones then? Ones that match your skill level and desire to achieve higher r.io scores?

    This is the very argument that Ion has stated. A no-punishment system like the one we have now allows for players to leave for whatever reason. Whereas the danger of putting in a punishment system is that it can be abused to hold people hostage in a group that they no longer want to participate in.

    Until you can solve that potential for abuse, no punishment system is a valid solution for blizzard.
